Like a magpie I live for glitter not you

I wanted to do this starting on the first, but forgot about it (and no, I wasn't playing WoW). So to make up for my lazy here are the Days one through four.

Day 01 — Your favorite song(s)
Right now it's "We Are Golden" by Mika. The official video is here (embedding has been disabled because it's from the actual record company's Youtube).

Day 02 - Your favorite movie
This is impossible. So instead, I'm going to list the movies that I can watch everyday and never tire of:

Finding Nemo, Imagine Me & You, The Chronicles of Riddick (all three movies), Stick It, RENT, The Lion King, 10 Things I hate About You, Mamma Mia!, Fried Green Tomatoes, Hairspray (2007), Across the Universe, Mozart and the Whale and She's the Man.

And for the record: there have been months where the only thing I would watch/listen too were one (or more) of these movies.

Day 03 - Your favorite television program
Overall = always going to be Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Even if I haven't watched an episode for a really long time, my love for that show will never falter.

Right now is a tie between Cold Case and Doctor Who. I just watched (most of) the DW specials and they were fucking amazing and extremely bittersweet. As for CC, I recently got into it and am more than half way through the first season. It was pretty much love at first watch. My favourite thing about it, is the music. For each episode, they pick music from that time and it's just very awesome. I hope they come out with and/or already have soundtracks.

Day 04 - Your favorite book
Right now it's The Golden Compass (also know as Northern Lights). It's the first book of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials. I saw the movie a few months ago and absolutely fell in love with the world and all the characters. I've always believed that most peole have animal spirits and this just makes me believe it more. I'm also fully convinced that Zoe is my deamon. She's never more than 50 feet away from me (when I'm home, of course) and always keeps her eye on me. I can't tell you how many times I've been at the computer and will look up to see her just staring at me.

Over all, my favourite book is probably going to be Cut by Patricia McCormick. The first time I tried to read it, I was a freshman in high school and didn't get more than a few chapters in, before I had to stop. At the time, I was seriously fucked up back then and I remember while reading it, feeling exactly how Callie felt. I would leave the library and feel as if I was leaving the mental hospital she's in, that's how deep it impacted me. It took me three years before I finally finished the book and I'm glad I did. It helped me realize so much and figure out a lot of shit. I don't think I was ready to read it when I first tried, which is why I didn't. Even to this day it still moves me to tears, because it's a reminder of who and how I was back then. I'm glad I'm mostly beyond that.
