Friday 5: I Saw it in the Movies

Friday 5: I Saw it in the Movies
Hosted by

1. In Citizen Kane, the main character’s last word before dying is “Rosebud,” which is discovered later to be the name of a favorite childhood sled. The idea is that this rich, powerful, hated man, in his last moment, finds himself thinking of happy, innocent times. If the film were about your life, what word might you utter in similar sentiment?

I would utter three words..."I love you" to those that I am leaving behind.

2. In Groundhog Day, the main character is forced to live the same day again and again until he has learned to love others and to love himself. If you found yourself in an endless loop, living one day repeatedly until you learned the lesson that was holding you back, what would that lesson be?

I would learn how to say no to people and stick with that answer. I might always learn that being nice is not always a good thing :(

3. In Freaky Friday, a mother and daughter who have difficulty understanding each other find themselves each living the others life (occupying the others body and everything!). If this were to happen to you for similar reasons, whose body would you wake up in?

I would probably also wake up as my daughter. She and I have our differences and it would benefit us both to walk in the other persons shoes...even if just for a day.

4. In Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones has to jump into an underground room filmed with the one thing that freaks him out: snakes. “Why did it have to be snakes?” he asks. If the movie were about you, what would you see in the underground room?

I would see spiders...I don't like spiders! I also don't like snakes or rats. It would be my luck that all three would be in the underground room!

5. In Sideways, the main character is asked to explain his love for wine made from a certain grape. As he describes the grape, we realizes he is also describing himself, saying that it must be carefully tended and that it is easily damaged. If the film were about you, what passion (hobby, food, collectible, or activity, for example) would you describe and how would you describe it so that you were also describing yourself? *

I would describe myself as a big, huggable, lovable, squeezable teddy bear. Teddy bears love you unconditionally, they listen to all your problems and don't say harsh things to you or give you dirty looks.


  1. What a great way to analyze yourself. I may try to do it...not sure. Glad I popped over from That's My Answer.

  2. I am so with you on #2, I really need to stop being so nice (at least, so openly) since more often than not it does get thrown back in my face :/ It's funny, I've been brought up to 'treat others how I would want to be treated', so I do- I treat people nicely and with respect, but sometimes I wonder whether it's worth it if you get nothing back. But then I remember I'd wouldn't want to be any other way, because that wouldn't be me.

    Haha I would see spiders for #4 too! Gross gross gross!!

    I think I am a bit of a teddy bear too ;)
