Anne with an 'e'

Orphans, governesses, novels and novelists. And yeah, an erring vicar's wife. What else... oh, beautiful, charming countryside scenes galore! These are stills from some of my favorite movies. I put what I remember about each movie. The images are apparently google; each link is provided to acknowledge the source. I guess you would know some or all of the titles.

1. A precocious orphan who insists her name be spelt with an 'e' (image)

2. "You take care of the swing, I'll worry about the hole" (image)
3. A children's storybook illustrator and a conservationist (image)
4. A governess who falls in love with her employer whose wife lives imprisoned at Thornfield Manor (image)
5. Another governess who falls in love with her employer. She's also "a nun who gave up her habit for a guy in the military" that's Vin Diesel describing the movie. (image)
6. "Don't go growing a big head. Your crown won't fit." (image)

7. If you need me but don't want me, I will stay. If you want me but don't need me, I will go." (image)

8. A british novelist who invites train bombing survivors to convalesce at her home in the Italian countryside (image)

9. A father who is convinced his son would become a huncback like him. *weird* (image)

10. A novelist whose 'greatest love story was her own' (image)

11. An old maid develops a crush on a young violinist (image)
12. An american novelist who loves terrible ideas (image)
13. You may call me "O Captain! My Captain!"( image)
See how did you do:
1. Anne Shirley of Green Gables 2. Keeping Mum 3. Miss Potter 4. Jane Eyre 5. Sound of Music 6. Ella Enchanted 7. Nanny McPhee 8. My House in Umbria 9. The Secret Garden 10. Becoming Jane 11. Ladies in Lavender 12. Under the Tuscan Sun 13. Dead Poets Society

Hazel said…

I am Harriet said…
Wonderful! I enjoyed the image-captions.
Cool. I actually guessed most of those correctly.
VE said…
You did a good job of stumping me for the most part. I personally own about 700 movie DVDs and yet I could only name seven of these...
Thom said…
LOL...CRS When I read the post I couldn't think of it and then I forgot about it. Likely excuse I know so yes I did see that one at least :)
Janet said…
Sound of Music was the only one I knew LOL!
Adelle Laudan said…
I guessed about half of them right. Fun trip down memory lane. Thanks!
Happy T13!

Weekend Snapshot: The AIDS Temple (Lopburi I)

It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:

100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at

"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple

Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies

A usual sight around Thai temples

Bone sculptures

The temple bell

Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.

Honor, Awards and a Game

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Made of Honor
Awards and a Game/Meme follow. Please scroll down a bit.

My pick for this week's TCP theme (wedding movie) is Made of Honor. I like the humor in it. We've all been to several weddings but how many of us can say I've been to one in which the maid of honor was a he? The scene which particularly cracked me up is when the priest mistook the maid of honor for a gay man =) If you're familiar with some of my likes, you'd know why I also love the Scotland location of the wedding. For more of the synopsis click here; and here's the trailer:
Head over to Just About Anything for more wedding movies.


My super duper bloggy friend Thom of Thom's Place for Well Whatever and fellow Mom Tetcha of Pensive Thoughts awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. I have to list seven things about me so here they are:

1. I love wearing jeans more than skirts.
2. One of my favorite colors is purple.
3. I don't mind spending sunrise…

Girl reading

The pictures space in my e-library contains a folder named Anastasia's Looking Glass.  It is where I store photos that inspire me. Recently I stumbled upon this website called where you can "bookmark your favorite images and share them with everyone." So far I found 12; (thought I'd include one of me to complete the list as I like it the way it is), and I'm sharing all with you.  A link to the source is placed before each photo. My 'favoritest' are nos. 2 - 13. Got yours?
