  1. I'm more than happy to join! And I loved your responses. I'll get started on the post right away. And then do I tag more people?

    • Yes, you copy all the questions including the "Four people I tag" at the end. Only, feel free to change things if you want! This is just for fun after all.

  2. Loved getting to know more about you! Room with a View is another one of my favorite films and when I was in Florence, I took the book with me and sat in front of the church where Lucy wanders in by herself…and of course I read a bit there!

    • I was there too but it was a very quick trip so it's all a blur. I would love to go back for a longer time.

  3. Wow, I think it's so cool you worked proofreading an encyclopedia! Did that put lots of strange trivia in your head? 🙂 This is a fun meme – thank you for tagging me! My answers will be up in a week or two!

    • I did learn quite a bit of trivia at the time, but I've forgotten it all now (this was some time ago and only a temp job). Can't wait to read your answers!

  4. Lovely to learn these little snippets about you Lory!
    I love the idea of a TV free household, but 2 teen boys might rebel if I suggested it!!
    Northern Exposure was one of my favourite's too back in the 90's…sigh.

  5. This is such a fun tag! It's great learning about other bloggers. It's amazing that you've visited so many places! I haven't been outside of the US and, even then, my visits with other states have been limited. I hope to do more traveling within the next few years, after I get my Master's degree.

    Lovely blog! I followed via email. Feel free to check out my blog, too, if you want. I have a giveaway going for a signed edition of If I Stay. =)

  6. How cool to live in Hawaii!! I think if I couldn't eat the four things you can't eat because of migraines I might go crazy! 🙂
    I did this one if you want to check it out HERE.
