meme ahoy  
From lots of people:

Ask me for "top five" lists of pretty much anything, and I will list you my top five of that thing or things.

Female comic book characters.
PMMJ: X-men: Emma and Scottcheetahmaster on July 23rd, 2005 12:59 pm (UTC)
1.) Wonder Woman: she's the iconic, after all.
2.) Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat: one of my favorite X-men from back when I first started reading comics. Interesting character with a unique power.
3.) Oracle: the original Batgirl, crippled by the Joker, put her life back together and rededicated herself to the cause. Great character growth.
4.) Jessica Jones: started out as a throwaway character for a superhero mystery limited series, and is now almost A-list in the Marvel universe. Tends to be very well written (she's the brainchild of Bendis, after all.)
5.) Talia: the daughter of R'as al Ghul. Sometimes a villain, but more often than not, she's an aide to Batman. However, underneath it all, she *is* her father's daughter, and that gives her a great edge (when written well, of course.)

Runners-up:
Deena Pilgrim (from Powers,) Detective Montoya, Invisible Woman, Poison Ivy, Polaris, Power Girl, White Queen (but only post-Morrison,) Zatanna. And probably ten more I am forgetting.

My God. Where is Promethea?
PMMJ: X-men: Emma and Scottcheetahmaster on July 23rd, 2005 08:21 pm (UTC)
Didn't catch my attention early on, will eventually borrow a trade from someone and give it a second shot. Don't know if she's crack the top ten up there, it's a tough cut.
Andy: jackcastironskillet on July 23rd, 2005 08:51 pm (UTC)
I'll be stunned if she doesn't rocket to #1.

Thanks for the snail-mail! Love to see you on IM sometime.</i>

Top 5 best lies you ever told (and got away with). :) (oooh that's a good one, I think)

"Sure, I've been tested."

"I'm not drunk."

"I was sick...really"

"I believe that I would be an asset to your company..."

But then he wouldn't be getting away with them anymore...

Don't do it man! It's a trap!
PMMJ: Memento: the Factscheetahmaster on July 23rd, 2005 01:00 pm (UTC)

INDEED.

Top five movies no one else has heard of!

Alternately, top five guilty pleasures.
PMMJ: T-1000cheetahmaster on July 23rd, 2005 03:58 pm (UTC)
Tragically, I talk about movies all the time, and trick certain people into watching many of them with me. But I'll go for the ones off my list that I bet most people haven't seen.

* Glengarry Glen Ross - A drama about real estate with only a handful of characters. Awesome Mamet script, great acting, etc.
* 24 Hour Party People - A post-modern retelling of the rise and fall of Factory Records. Positively, a treat.
* City of God - Seriously, it was that good. Go rent it. Now.
* Mulholland Dr. - When I first saw it, I loved it. Then I hated it for a while. Now I think it's brilliant, but man, messed up. No matter which turns out to be true, well worth seeing.
* The Count of Monte Cristo - Totally surprised by this one, very poorly advertised. Plus, Luis Guzman.

Runner-up: Peter Pan - the new one was really good, honestly.

OMG BONUS FEATURE:
The top five movies you've all heard of, but haven't gotten around to watching. Or need to watch again.

* Citizen Kane
* The Piano
* Chinatown
* Love Actually
* Jaws

Thanks for reminding me about Peter Pan, btw.
Andy: jackcastironskillet on July 23rd, 2005 07:50 pm (UTC)
Funny: I've been very conscious of my need to re-watch Jaws, just layely.

HEY, KOOL-AID!
Top Five Kool-Aid Flavors
maia: Confusedmaroonmd on July 22nd, 2005 09:35 pm (UTC)
Re: HEY, KOOL-AID!
Kool-Aid has flavor?
|</\-|-: martini2edamame on July 23rd, 2005 03:26 am (UTC)
Re: HEY, KOOL-AID!
Yeah. But they've really gone downhill since they discontinued Purplesaurus Rex.
maia: What's Upmaroonmd on July 23rd, 2005 08:12 am (UTC)
Re: HEY, KOOL-AID!
See, the last time I had Kool-Aid, I think we still called it either "red" or "purple".
PMMJ: Memento: the Factscheetahmaster on July 23rd, 2005 01:09 pm (UTC)
Re: HEY, KOOL-AID!


1.) Red (the fruit punch one, not the cherry.)
2.) Purplesaurus Rex
3.) Orange
4.) Blue (but mostly for the novelty.)
5.) Orange, again.

Quotes that have mirrored your own life.
PMMJ: Memento: the Factscheetahmaster on July 23rd, 2005 03:42 pm (UTC)
I'm sure next week I'd pick five different ones...
"On the whole human beings want to be good, but not too good and not quite all the time." -George Orwell

"Private opinion creates public opinion... That is why private opinion, and private behaviour, and private conversation are so terrifyingly important." -Jan Struther

"My past might as well be Saturn, for how far away it is and how likely I am to return there." -CatAndGirl.com

"I wonder if secrecy is the late twentieth century's final lust." -Alexandra Johnson

"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on." -Robert Frost

Top five Afghans.
GenieAlisageniealisa on July 23rd, 2005 12:17 am (UTC)
like people from Afghanistan or blankets? Ooh, or both! That would be tricky...
PMMJ: Memento: the Factscheetahmaster on July 24th, 2005 03:35 pm (UTC)
1.) Dr. Sima Samar
2.) Ulugh Beg
3.) Ibn Sina
4.) Whoever write this webpage.
5.) And of course, my cohort in crime, Lemon Russ!

Hmmm...top five kids games! :-)
PMMJ: Memento: the Factscheetahmaster on July 23rd, 2005 01:23 pm (UTC)
Hmmm.

1.) The 'mimic Daddy' game, which is hours of endless comedy for me.
2.) The 'run around in circles for no reason' game.
3.) Any game that doesn't involve me crawling on my hands and knees on the tile floor in the kitchen.
4.) The 'let's clean up our crayons' game.
5.) Hide and Seek, if only because she doesn't quite get the game, and always hides... on the couch.
