A-Z Blogging Challenge: U, V, W, X, Y, and Z.... in no particular order.

After being without power due to tornado damage, it's nice to be back online. Finishing the A-Z Blogging Challenge in one swoop! So many favorites... just a great way to end it all!

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!

Willy Wonka: [singing] There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination. Living there, you'll be free if you truly wish to be. 

Willy Wonka: The suspense is terrible... I hope it'll last. 

Willy Wonka: So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.

Willy Wonka: Time is a precious thing. Never waste it. 

Willy Wonka: A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men. 

(It's always a good time for Wolverine.)
Rogue: When they come out... does it hurt?
Wolverine: Every time.

(My favorite children's author. Check out her site.)

(if you haven't heard this group, it's worth the time to listen)

from the Moulin Rouge Soundtrack

(Music to get you up and moving.)

Seinfeld - The Ex-Girlfriend
(Full episode)
Jerry: The waiting room. I hate when they make you wait in the room. 'Cause it says "Waiting Room." There's no chance of not waiting. 'Cause they call it the waiting room, they're gonna use it. They've got it. It's all set up for you to wait. And you sit there, you know, and you've got your little magazine. You pretend you're reading it, but you're really looking at the other people. You know, you're thinking about them. Things like, "I wonder what he's got. As soon as she goes, I'm getting her magazine." And then, they finally call you and it's a very exciting moment. They finally call you, and you stand up and you kinda look around at the other people in the room. "Well, I guess I've been chosen. I'll see you all later." You know, so you think you're going to see the doctor, but you're not, are you? No. You're going into the next waiting room the littler waiting room. But if they are, you know, doing some sort of medical thing to you, you want to be in the smallest room that they have, I think. You don't want to be in the largest room that they have. You know what I mean? You ever see these operating theatres that they have, with like, stadium seating? You don't want them doing anything to you that makes other doctors go, "I have to see this! Are you kidding? Are they really gonna do that to him? Are there seats? Can we get in?" Do they scalp tickets to these things? "I got two for the Winslow tumor, I got two"

I Love Lucy - Vacation From Marriage
(full episode)
Ricky: You know something, Fred. I hate to admit this, but I'd like to see Lucy tonight.
Fred: I can top that. I'd like to see Ethel.


  1. I admire your stick-to-it-iveness! And these were great fun.

  2. Congrats in finishing the A to Z, Loved the post.


  3. I must say, you have many things I love in this post...

  4. Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a classic! Too bad my four-year old doesn't see its merits, at least not yet.

    Fun post!
