A-Z Blogging Challenge: Letter H

I have a mixed media A-Z for you all to enjoy! For my 26 posts enjoy great movie lines, favorite children's books, fantastic music selections, and perhaps an episode of Seinfeld or I Love Lucy! A little something for everyone! Yes, I'm a day or two behind now in the A-Z. Life happens. :)

(This should required viewing at least once a year.)

Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?
Paul Varjak: The mean reds, you mean like the blues?
Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you're getting fat and maybe it's been raining too long, you're just sad that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?
Paul Varjak: Sure.
Holly Golightly: Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany's. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that'd make me feel like Tiffany's, then - then I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name!

The Kiss Hello

JERRY: Now, I was thinking the other day about hair, and that the weird
thing about it, is that people will touch other people's hair. You will
actually kiss another human being, right on the head. But, if one of those hairs
should somehow be able to get out of that skull, and go off on its own, it is
now the vilest, most disgusting thing that you can encounter. The same hair.
People freak out. (horrified) "There was a hair, in the egg salad!"


  1. Wonderful H post, loved Audrey Hepburn.


  2. You pick such great items to post, thanks!

  3. After reading G, my son and I had to check out Goonies again. It's definitely a favorite.
    I have to admit, I've never seen Breakfast at Tiffany's, I am thinking I need to put it on our netflix. Heart of Glass was the first Blondie song I had ever heard, I didn't know who she was and someone gave me a 45 of that song, it was great, loved her ever since. Seinfeld is always a hoot!
    Your blog is so much fun! Always enjoy seeing what you come up with.

  4. I've only seen Breakfast at Tiffany's a dozen times or so. "Cat...! Cat...!!" *sniff*

  5. I was just thinking about that Seinfeld episode! I got so disgusted cleaning hair off the sink that it just popped in my mind :)

    I'm also a big fan of Breakfast at Tiffany's and Audrey Hepburn.

  6. Great Post. I'm so glad I found your blog. I'm stopping by from the A to Z challenge and I look forward to reading more from you.

  7. Excellent post! Another great Seinfeld episode to stir up some fond TV memories.
