What is your must-see holiday movie? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

The one movie I HAVE to watch every Christmas is Nora Ephron's Mixed Nuts. The cast is phenomenal - Steve Martin, Madeline Kahn, Juliette Lewis, Adam Sandler, Rita Wilson... Liev Schreiber IN A DRESS - and the plot (what little plot there is) is So Quirky. I find myself quoting it or thinking about it a lot even in the other months of the year, and randomly hearing Eartha Kitt singing "Santa Baby" if I'm out and about at Christmastime always makes me want to sit down to watch it.

Cutting it down another notch. Offed this time are people who I never talk to, people who never post, people I don't know in RL, and people who think I'm worthless. :p

Cleaning out my friends list.

If I've removed you, it's not because I hate you or whatever. It's just that we have little to nothing to say to one another (as evidenced by comments, conversation, etc... or lack thereof), OR you never post.. If'n I removed you and you really ARE interested in what little I have to say, but you just don't have the time or whatever to comment or chat or whatever, let me know.

I the utter absence of my own thoughts I give you.. a late Friday Five.

1. Is the name you have now the same name that's on your birth certificate? If not, what's changed?

Yup, it's the same.

2. If you could change your name (first, middle and/or last), what would it be?

I've thought about changing my name, but I haven't ever come up with a solid thing to change it TO. I might consider going by my middle name instead perhaps...

3. Why were you named what you were? (Is there a story behind it? Who specifically was responsible for naming you?)

Because my mother's cousin named her little boy Stacey, which was supposed to be MY name. Mom decided she didn't want her girl named the same as a boy and didn't want her cousin to think she stole her name, nor for there to be confusion when we were little, so she changed what she named me. Turns out I don't even know this kid.

4. Are there any names you really hate or love? What are they and why?

I don't particularly care for MY name. Otherwise, nope.

5. Is the analysis of your name at / / astroexpert accurate? How or how isn't it?

I meant to cross-post my book-sale thingies to my own journal and forgot. :p I have a ton of Dean Koontz books, some random novels and three "fuzzy" books that I need to make go away so that I have room on my bookshelves again. Books are $1 each plus actual shipping (if necessary).

Dean Koontz:
Twilight Eyes
Dragon Tears
Demon Seed
The Servants of Twilight
The Eyes of Darkness
The Bad Place
The House of Thunder
Mr. Murder
The Door to December
The Mask
The Vision
The Key to Midnight
Winter Moon
Sole Survivor
The Funhouse
The Voice of the Night

Fuzzy Books:
Little Fuzzy by H. Beam Piper
The Fuzzy Papers by H. Beam Piper
Golden Dream: A Fuzzy Odyssey by Ardath Mayhar

Other Random Novels:
Pen Pals by Olivia Goldsmith
The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel
Circle of Stars by Anna Lee Waldo (this is the second in a series, but stands well alone. I never knew I was missing anything)

Just drop me an e-mail or comment if you're interested. I may put up more, if I can tear them away from myself. :p

Apparently anything and everything I say is about something, so I will quit saying ANYthing. That'll clear THAT up.
