Sorry it took me so long to get to this, our cable/internet went out Friday afternoon. Stupid cable company.

Five questions from austin360

1. What is the appeal of The Pants of No Return at 8PM?
They're comfy. And warm. These are both good things. Also you can go straight from watching TV on the couch to snuggling up in bed with a minimum of fuss if you've already got the pajama pants on.

2. What's the best thing you ever did? Besides marry Mr. Sus and have Emma?
There's not really anything besides them. They are, hands down, the two most important, most wonderful things I've ever done. Everything else is minor in comparison.

3. We all have our Worst. Movie. Ever. opinions. What's yours?
Hmm. This is hard. I just looked over the IMDb Bottom 100 and I haven't seen a single damn one. I did see a lot of really awful movies while working my way through the Bradley Whitford filmography, but I think I'm gonna have to go with Heartbreakers on this. Mr. Sus and I went to see it in a theater (don't ask me, there was nothing else showing at the time) for my birthday one year. Actually it was my 30th birthday, come to think of it. The babysitter locked herself out of the house and called us halfway through the movie and I was actually relieved for an excuse to leave. That was an awesome birthday, lemme tell ya.

4. What's your guilty pleasure now?
No, don't make me tell! Okay, fine, it's Angel. You happy? I'm outed now. For some reason I could never seem to get into Buffy when it was on the air and I never even bothered to watch Angel. But then in the last few months I started catching them both in reruns during the day. Buffy's gradually grown on me, though I still have some mixed feelings about it. But Angel… I'm developing a serious addiction to Angel. I know, it's often quite craptacular, but I just really, really enjoy it. A lot. I guess I'm just a big ole sucker for a hot, broody vampire. Also, any show with Ben Edlund on its writing staff is worth watching, in my book.

5. What scene in Return of the King makes you cry every time you see it, without fail?
Jeez, what scene doesn't? Pippin's song... the Beacons... "I'm glad to be with you, Samwise Gamgee, here at the end of all things."... "My friends, you bow to no one"... And, of course, the Grey Havens. Anyone who can sit through the Grey Havens without needing a hanky should consider a heart transplant. But I guess the one that really gets me the most is Eowyn's heartbreaking line to Theoden: " I'm going to save you." *SOB*

6. -- BONUS QUESTION -- When are you coming to visit me?
Ummm… uh… I don't know. Soon, I hope. Whenever things settle down a little around here.

They are! And I find it very telling that when we come home from dinner, Mr. Sus immediately asks if we're going to put on the Pants of No Return.

Actually it was my 30th birthday, come to think of it.

Yes it was. Come to think of it, we weren't really hanging out yet and I saw that you'd posted something in the vent thread (aww, vent thread!) on Testy's board about getting a pass out of the worst movie ever via the babysitter. Poor Sus on her 30th birthday! :(

Jeez, what scene doesn't?

Wah! I know! And you know what I find most odd? When I watch a few scenes here and there (since I don't really watch the movie anymore, but I really need to finish the filmmakers' commentary) I end up getting misty in scenes where I never got misty before. Like "There is no ship now that can bear me hence" and right as the music swells as Gandalf and Pippin leave Edoras.

Soon, I hope. Whenever things settle down a little around here.

Good, I'm holding you to that. Cause I've got a plate of migas here with your name on it.

Mmmmmmigas. Damn, I wish I could come right now.

And don't forget about the buttermilk pancakes that we'd share!
