Stylish Blogger Award: Thanks Tom!

I’d like to offer a big thank you to Tom over at Motion Picture Gems for so graciously honoring my blog with a Stylish Blogger Award!

According to the rules of the award, I was asked to post a link to Tom’s blog, reveal seven facts about myself, and then pass the award along to seven other stylish bloggers.

So please take a moment to visit Tom’s wonderful blog at http://motionpicturegems.blogspot.com. His love of classic movies is very evident in everything he writes, and he provides so much interesting content including movie reviews, fun quizzes, and links to a ton of great resources for the classic movie fan.

Seven Facts About Me:

1. My dad instilled in me a love of sports at a very early age, and to this day I love watching sports more than most guys I know. NFL football (go Packers!), college basketball, and Chicago Cubs baseball are my favorites.

2. I was a game show fanatic growing up. Let’s Make a Deal, Press Your Luck, Sale of the Century, Joker’s Wild, Tic Tac Dough, Password, Couch Potatoes, Card Sharks . . . I could go on and on. Oh, how I miss them!

3. I have two cats who are like children to me; Wrigley, who is named after Wrigley Field in Chicago, and Quincy. No, he is not named after the tv doctor. :-) I just thought that name was so cute when I saw it in a cat name book.

4. I love trivia! I love to watch Jeopardy, play trivial pursuit, play trivia at sports bars; anything where I have a reasonably good chance of knowing the answers.

5. I never had any interest in watching James Bond movies until I saw how incredibly charming a young Sean Connery was in the movie Marnie and then watched him in Dr. No. I now want to watch all of them and decide in the end which actor is my favorite Bond.

6. I love listening to podcasts and couldn’t live without my iPod. Although it’s not exclusively about classic movies, my favorite movie related podcast/radio show is called Oscar, Oscar. If you know of or host any other interesting podcasts about classic movies, please let me know.

7.  I love to read and could spend all day in a library!
