Top Five Instrumental Pieces

I know it has been a long time since I have sat down and shared my top fives with you.  Life happens and I have not felt like writing, to tell you the truth.

I am currently sitting in a Starbucks trying to get my homework done.  I’m listening to my Pandora stations titled “Classical for Studying”. So, it’s my inspiration for this post. So here are my top five instrumental pieces. Continue reading

Top Five Pearl Jam Songs

“Long time, no sea,” said the dead fish.  You know how sometimes life happens?  Well, that and me being lazy did. But lucky you, I was able to brainstorm some Top 5 lists for your reading pleasure.

This Top 5 is near and dear to my heart, well not actually.  It’s about Pearl Jam.  Being a teenager in the 90’s almost made it mandatory to like Pearl Jam.  I didn’t. I liked Nirvana, U2, Reel Big Fish, and The Foo Fighters.  But Pearl Jam was not my cup of tea.  Then I met my husband. Continue reading

Top Five Harry Potter Villains

“Long time, no sea,” said the dead fish.

It’s been awhile since I’ve sat down and written a new Top Five.  Life has been happening with the Monster graduating high school, cleaning house to make room for visitors and the end of the year stuff every teacher has to do.  Sorry about that.

I have been kicking around something in my head for my next Top Five.  I’ve decided to tackle My Top Five Harry Potter Villains. Please do not read of if you do not know anything about the Harry Potter world, because I would not want to give away any spoilers. Also, I will try to include examples from the books and the movies as well as information I have gathered from Mugglenet and Pottermore. Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Foods I Make

Top Five Movies That Feature a Prom

Prom season is upon us for the first time in our household.  My Monster is a Senior this year and she has decided to go to the prom, sans date, but with a group of friends.  This is fine with me as she has never really thought much about the opposite sex, except for ones in movies or anime.  She will have more fun than with someone that she would feel socially awkward around. Continue reading

Top Five Movie Soundtracks

This top five list I have been kicking around in my head for a bit.  I have seen hundreds of movies and purchased many soundtracks.  I think the music that plays during a movie is an important part.  It helps set the tone and emotion of the scene.  It can also let you know who that character is…or what kind of movie you are getting into.
