  1. Nice job. Sometimes five wasn't nearly enough. By the way, you've been to Melbourne and New Zealand? Have you ever blogged about it or is it a story best left untold? :p

    1. Oh, five was so not enough. lol

      I haven't blogged about it, but it was one of the best times of my life. I was little, and my dad had a job there. My school saw the trip as a great learning experience and allowed my parents to take me out of school for several months. Honestly, I remember every detail of the trip. It was amazing.

  2. I'd love to hear more about your choices. What movies made you choose your favorite actors and actresses? How did you happen to travel to such interesting places and what did you like about them? What was the best part of each concert? I think this post could lead to about 50 posts.

    Janie, who is curiouser and curiouser all the time

    1. LOL--So many reasons. The rundown: The actors and actresses listed, to me, are so down to earth & real, and each of them brings a character to life on screen, making the viewer really feel their emotions. My dad's job took him to Australia, so we got to go, too, when I was little. :) The concerts--Janet and Paula put on a major show; Whitney just sang the heck out of the place; Carole King was genius; and The Sleeping Beauty brought me to tears--it was a stunning ballet.

  3. Fun! You have good choices! This will be a real toughie for me! lol

  4. Wow, I love this and your answers are great!

  5. Yankee Stadium, huh? I think you would enjoy the experience. I live just up the street from it, btw. ;)

    I, too, would love to hear about your trips to Oz and The Land of the Rising Kiwi! Those are two places I've been dying to visit. Especially NZ, which I've been fascinated with ever since I was a little boy (long before Lord of the Rings and Xena).

    Great list, Frisky! I might have to try this out on my own blog later.

    1. For sure! I'd love to get there someday!

      I was young when we went there, but I remember everything, from petting a baby Wombat to seeing the Fairy Penguins. It was an incredible experience.

      It was a fun list to make! I'd love to read your fab fives.

  6. A gold star for putting Kate Winslet at the top of your list of actresses, Miss Virgin. I'd like to see more actresses with her fertile bodyshape.

    1. Kate Winslet is absolutely stunning and an incredible talent. :)

  7. I'm going to save this for the 5th but am excited to do it. :) Loved your answers...I feel like I will have some repeats for sure.

  8. Couldn't agree more with your people you could do without. Especially those who think they know how to live your life better than you do. If you think you're so great, go be a freaking life coach or something for someone who actually wants to listen!
