let's see...five things worth repeating...I might have to do five categories so I can fit multiple things in each category! LOL.
In the realm of tv/movies:
*Any show by Joss Whedon (Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse...).
*The Princess Bride! (Yes, I'm *that* girl who can quote the entire movie from the beginning, including sound effects....)
*Harry Potter, especially the 5th/6th/7th movies
*The BBC/A&E Pride and Prejudice
honorable mention: Eddie Izzard...anything you can find on video or netflix, seriously.
*well, I'm a pastor so I probably have to say that the Bible falls in this category...
*Again, Harry Potter
*and again, Pride and Prejudice
*and again, the Princess Bride. who knew books could be so amazing?
*the Indigo Girls--umm, everything they've ever put out is worth putting on repeat
*Mozart's 23rd piano concerto
*Beethoven's 6th symphony
*Styx...perhaps not their entire repertoire, but a good chunk. The Return To Paradise 2-CD set is a good start.
*Carrie Newcomer--again, everything she's got is incredible.
honorable mentions: the Book of Mormon soundtrack, the Barenaked Ladies, the soundtrack to Rent, David LaMotte, Mendelssohn's 4th symphony.
in live performance, should I ever have the opportunity again:
*The Book of Mormon (hands down the best musical I've ever seen)
*The Rite of Spring, fully staged by a ballet company with live music. There is NOTHING like this, nothing. you will be blown away.
*The Lion King (again, I've seen it twice and would go again in a heartbeat)
*David LaMotte (ask for a song from his children's collection!)
*The Indigo Girls (omg, amazing...every time, amazing, and no matter the venue, amazing.)
*Wicked (which I've seen twice and loved!)
*almost anything with potatoes, especially mashed potatoes.
*seitan "pot roast"
*locally grown illinois corn at the height of summer
*my aunt's s'mores cupcakes (vegan!)--I wish I had the recipe
*asparagus from my local grower, in season right now
honorable mention: Annie's deluxe mac-n-cheese, green bean casserole, bean burritos, papa john's pizza
and a bonus: places to visit:
*Damascus (well, at least before...I don't know what it's like now.)
*Jerusalem and Bethlehem (not far apart geographically, but...).
honorable mentions: Disneyland!, the pyramids, Nile Cruises, Edinburgh, Amman (Jordan), Washington DC, Hawaii.
and a few minutes later, another bonus: restaurants worth a re-visit!
*the Laughing Seed Cafe, Asheville NC. best vegetarian restaurant in the country, imho.
*Abreo, in Rockford IL. yum.
*Chowpatti International Restaurant in Arlington Heights, IL. Indian Nachos...delish.
*the Flying Biscuit in ATL. dude, the biscuits...so good.
*Sipz Vegetarian Fuzion Cafe in San Diego. vegan sushi...and so much other goodness!
honorable mention: The Brick Store in Decatur GA, Duke's here in Crystal Lake, Krystal Thai (about 2 miles from my house), Graham's 318 for sipping chocolate in Geneva IL, The Chicago Diner, and Bin 36.
and you? what's worth repeating?
