I got this meme from [livejournal.com profile] meneleth , who assigned me the letter “C”:

Leave a comment and I will give you a letter. You should name these three things starting with that letter:

1. favorite film
2. favorite book
3. favorite word

Okay, so my favorite film that starts with the letter C is Chronicles of Narnia -- The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe!  I was as eager for this film to come out as I was for LotR.  Interestingly enough, I believe I felt more intense pleasure the first time I saw the film than I did seeing Fellowship of the Ring, which surprised me a bit, being that I am a MAJOR fan of Tolkien.  But I'm also a major fan of CS Lewis, and something about the film made me feel like I was actually seeing Narnia even more than I felt I was seeing Middle-earth.  It was a glorious feeling.

My favorite book that starts with the letter C is more difficult to choose -- so I have chosen three such titles!  Children of Greene Knowe (L.M. Boston), Chronicles of Prydain (Lloyd Alexander), and The Crystal Cave (Mary Stewart).  These were all favorites of mine as I was growing up -- after wearing out the library copies, I bought my own and wore them out!  I think I need to read them again now.  ;)

My favorite word beginning with the letter C?  I think it has to be coffee -- my favorite thing to drink.  I've got a cup in the microwave beeping at me right now.  ;-)  A couple of other favorites (since I can't seem to make decisions today) are chota mota -- meaning "small fat" in Urdu, which is the way they say "this and that" --  and curry -- the smell of which greets me daily when I go out, since we live near several Indian restaurants!

If any of my friends wants to participate in this meme, let me know and I'll give you a letter.

I realize I haven't updated in a coon's age (whatever that is), so I will try to do a nice post covering that soon.  The gist of it all is that I am doing very well, I am NOT COUGHING, and life is interesting in a mostly fun way these days.
