My Favorite Book

I have been on quite a reading kick lately, so this question is more difficult to answer than it would have been a couple years ago. However, there is one book that will always be my favorite. Always. Most people make have a pained expression when I tell them that this book is my favorite, but I have my reasons, I promise.
My all-time favorite book is "The Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck. I think the reason most people get so uptight when I mention this book is because they were probably forced to read it for school. I had the privilege of reading the classic before it was assigned to me and it made all the difference. I would encourage everybody to revisit "Grapes", as well as any other piece of classic literature that may or may not have been ruined by unreasonable reading deadlines.

My favorite movie

Well, I'm a kid who just loves to watch movies. It's probably my second most favorite thing to do. So, choosing a favorite is just about impossible.
Recently, I have taken to liking the work of Quentin Tarantino. I could watch the Kill Bill Vol. 1 once a week if I was able to.
However, the blog aid didn't ask what my favoriteS are. . . just one. So, without further ado, my favorite movie:
Here's a hint, it stars five girls from England in really large shoes. . .

Blog Aid - My Favorite Song

I got this list off of my dear friend Rachel's blog and I'm going to use it.
The first item on the list is to blog about your favorite song.

I have a couple favorite songs depending on my mood. When I am sulking, I like to listen to my boy Sufjan Stevens.

My favorite song to karaoke would have to be Madonna's "Vogue". Unfortunately, I can't find a video that will let me post it on this page. . . You should listen to it. I'm pretty excited that the Glee cast is releasing their own version of the song on April 20th.

My Summer Vacation

I have been itching to do something awesome lately, but I haven't come up with any plans that would be awesome enough That is, until the other night. . . .
I have decided that I am going to have one of the best weeks of my life sometime in June. I am planning on taking at least a week off from work, going to a random small town hotel/bed & breakfast in another state, and locking myself away from my world during that time. Sounds crazy, I know. But, the plan is for me to spend most of the time writing. I don't know what I will have to show for it at the end of my trip, but I think it will be therapeutic for me.
The only think I have to pin down is this. . . where can I go that is isolated enough to not have too many worldly distractions, but still inspiring enough to help me come up with some good stuff. I am thinking of staying somewhere like Salmon, Idaho. The only problem with that is that I have stayed there twice already. I would like it to be somewhere new, somewhere in the northwest.
I am open to suggestions :)
