Favorites in Threes- Villains, Cheeses, and Superheroes

Just for fun I thought I’d give you a few Friday Favorites in threes. They’re in no particular order, just my top 3 favorites in each category.

Villains: A good villain can make a story perfection. Here are some of my faves.

Maleficent from Sleepy Beauty. Perfectly nasty in all the right ways.


Julian Sark from Alias (played by David Anders). A horrible, self-serving criminal all wrapped up in large doses of sarcasm and a faux-British accent. He had some of the best lines on TV and I adored him. I miss this show.


Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries (played by Ian Somerhalder). Okay, he’s not always a villain but he definitely let’s his nasty side win out from time to time. Actually, he’s sometimes the hero, but he is the dark side of the coin, the Salvatore lacking a moral compass, the ticking time-bomb. He’s a vampire, so that automatically makes him more villainous, right? Oh, who am I kidding? I just wanted to post his pic.



Cheeses: Really there’s no cheese I won’t eat. I would have been fine as a peasant, living off a bread and cheese diet.

– Smoked Gouda. Yummy.
– Swiss. On a burger with mushrooms. (My mouth is watering.)
– Provolone. I’ll put it on anything.


Superheroes: Can you tell I live in a house full of males?

Superman. I love him because my hubby loves him, and because in the next Superman movie, he’ll be played by one of my favorite actors.


Iron Man. Who doesn’t love the snarky, smart-mouthed Tony Stark? Give him a super-suit and he’s way cooler than Batman.


Captain America. I can get on board with the patriotism and even the ridiculous mythology behind his creation, especially if they keep letting Chris Evans play him in the movies.

Share with me: What are your favorites in each category? (You can just pick one category if you aren’t feeling up to narrowing down your long list of superheroes.)

Bucket Lists

I like the idea of having a Bucket List.

A list of things you want to do before you die. A list of things that are so extraordinary that you make an intentional plan to experience them.

Now, I’m not here to debate the value or philosophy behind the Bucket List (not the movie, the actual list) and I’ve never really considered having one…until the other night.

See, if I could have an alter-ego, I’d be like Sydney Bristow. If you don’t know who she is, she’s Jennifer Garner’s character from Alias–one of the greatest TV shows to ever air, in my humble opinion.

Sydney Bristow appears to be the mild-mannered girl next door, but in reality, she’s a CIA super-spy.

A-kick-you-in-the-face-and-ask-questions-later kind of gal.

And I’m totally like that. Totally. (I hear your giggles.)

The closest I could get to that is the fact that Jennifer Garner and I share the same first name.

However, the other night my hubby and I decided to watch a movie. He chose Fast Five, the most recent in the series of Fast & Furious movies starring Paul Walker and Vin Diesel.

I loved it. Every singe action-packed suped-up speeding cars second of it.

So, I want to add driving a car to my Bucket List.

I don’t want to drive a race car–no NASCAR or Formula 1 for me.  Oh, no.

Not just any car.

I want to drive a suped-up street racing car like the ones in the movie–preferably one of the muscle cars like the Charger–and drive it like I stole it. With all the skills of a super-spy like Sydney Bristow.

Yep, I’m adding that to the top of my Bucket List. Right after ‘Learn to Drive a 5-Speed’.

Share with me: Do you have a Bucket List? If so, what’s the most insane item on it??
