The "Seven Things" Meme

Well, I've been tagged by Lisa at The Episcopal Majority thanks to Saint Pat at No Claim to Sainthood .

Here's the meme:

1. Name a book that you want to share so much that you keep giving away copies:

It's sort of a toss up between three books actually. Nevada Barr's "Hard Truth", Nene Adam's "Black By Gaslight" and Sue Monk Kidd's "The Secret Life of Bees".

2. Name a piece of music that changed the way you listen to music:

Beth Nielson Chapman's "Sand and Water".

3. Name a film you can watch again and again without fatigue:

Oh, so easy. "Out of Africa".

4. Name a performer for whom you suspend all disbelief:

At any given moment, Helen Mirren, Andreas Bottcelli, or Melissa Etheridge.

5. Name a work of art you'd like to live with:

Michelangelo's "The Captive" because he is always struggling for freedom, something we can all relate to.

6. Name a work of fiction which has penetrated your life:

Anything by Bill O'Reilly, James Dobson, Ann Coulter, Bernard Goldberg and that ilk.
I have received some questions about listing ++Rowan Williams, so instead of fiction, I'll put him under mystery [for obvious reasons...]. The jury is still out on Rick Warren as of this post.

7. Name a punch line that always makes you laugh:

Mmmm...tough one....hmmmm...there are so many on TitusOneNine it's hard to choose.

Atticus, a fringe blogger sent me the following comments on my meme answers:

hey, catherine, i am a terrible taggee, or just a bit afraid i will do something wrong...i think i am a pseudo blogger, staying on the fringes, so instead i want to comment on your answers:

1) how about a book review on the Hard Truth...i'm betting i would like that one, (i liked the Bee book!) the one i keep giving away is The Birth Order Connection, such fun! and How to Talk so Kids will Listen and How to Listen so Kids will Talk...it works!

2)Oh Wow! i love BNC's CD , Sand and Water! Esp.
"Heads up for the Wrecking Ball" and "I'm a Happy Girl"

3)OUT OF AFRICA? long, just too long ...TO KILL a MOCKINGBIRD for me

4) i don't really understand what "supending disbelief" means, but i'll go with Sarah McLauglin or Ellen!(the comedian)

5)this is easy, i just saw Rodan's sculpture, cathedral, of 2 hands clasped, in Paris, absolutely beautiful and are you being facetious by calling James Dobson fiction?

I saw your fiction response and misunderstood the question for a minute thinking it was your favorite authors... Was a little taken aback, but have caught my breath again!!

1 - William Sloan Coffin's "Credo"

2 - Just one? Hmmm.... Haydn or Brahms, or Beatles, or Pink, or Duran Duran, or... I'll stop now.

3 - Lord of the Rings.

4 - Madonna or Cher. I'm so gay.

5 - I'll stick with your Michelangelo, but go for... David, of course!! I hope I don't need to explain...

6 - I'll go with LOTR again.

7 - "I'll have the **** flavored ice cream."

Good ones!

1. "Secret Life of Bees"! Yes!! And I love Nevada Barr.

6. ++Rowan in the "mystery" section -- LOL!

Obviously, I need to see "Out of Africa." Several folks seem to be mentioning it.
