I really haven't had much to update about since I've been back on the Island. Kelly & her fellow blogging friends have been passing this around...after mocking it at first, I think I'll do it, just to have something to blog about :)

I'm going to back-date it a bit and do 4 today, because I want to have it all done in June.
1. Favorite Song: Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" seriously does put me in a better mood no matter what. It's optimistic and bright and just classic. Wish it hadn't had that recent Glee-inspired comeback, though...that made it cheap.
According to my iTunes, my most-listened-to track is Brendan Benson's "What I'm Looking For"...it's more my typical style, singer-songwritery stuff.
2. Favorite Movie: "Love Actually". Yes, it's a Christmas movie, but I watch it year-round. First saw it in French, and liked it even then, when I didn't understand the dialogue.
3. Favorite TV Show: "The Daily Show" is definitely my favorite--the one filming I'd want to see if I were in NYC, and the one show I'd want to get interviewed on (for any reason).
4. Favorite Book: Really tough, this one. I used to always say "The Catcher in the Rye", and yes, it is great, but my tastes have changed over the years. Now it seems too depressive and juvenile, just like another old favorite, "The Bell Jar."
I've always loved the classics, like Austen & the Brontes--my favorites of theirs are "Persuasion" and "Wuthering Heights", respectively. For an entirely different mood, I love Hemingway & Steinbeck, too. (This is why I have so many books...)
