1. Steaks and some really great beer. I've never met a man (who I would want to date anyway) that didn't love a steak.

2. Easy reading like Cynthia Heimel and Helen Fielding, with maybe a few choice murder mysteries thrown in.

3. Right now, Alan Rickman is God.

A. Start with a nice strawberry and almond spinach salad with strawberry dressing.
B. Then its filet mignon with the bacon wrap, with mild yellow onions and mushrooms sautéed in extra virgin olive oil, and accompanied by salt and pepper shrimp cooked with garlic in butter over a low heat. A nice little side dish of steamed cauliflower and broccoli.
C. Dessert would have to be one of my home made lemon whip pies.

I’d have to take “The Great and Secret Show” by Clive Barker, “Time Enough for Love” by Robert A. Heinlein, and my noteBOOK, by Gateway (its got a DVD player yo!)

Nicholas Cage, Kurt Russel, Bruce Willis, Chao Yun Fat, Bob Hoskins, Jet Li, Vinnie Jones, Jason Statham

I could not remember if you had already gone or not. is it too late to ask you to look for a St. Genisius medal? *bats eyes*
Sep. 1st, 2005 03:15 pm (UTC)
Of course its not too late!! Not sure what that is, can you google a pic (unless you already have one) and send it to me? I'll print it out and take it along.

Sep. 3rd, 2005 05:23 pm (UTC)
I'll look around - I'm not really sure there is a definitive one....it's like a St. Christopher but Genisius is the patron saint of actors. (and it's bad luck to buy one for yourself, that's the sum total I know about a St. Genisius medal) Is there a standard "all Christophers look like this?"
Sep. 3rd, 2005 06:05 pm (UTC)
LOL, a generic Christopher medal!

Ok, now that I know what I'm looking for I will add it to my list of things to look for.

BTW, does Mark have any wine reccommendations? Or at least a good book to study to find out what to look for?
Sep. 4th, 2005 06:52 pm (UTC)
yeah, yeah *grumbles and pulls on her 'not the Catholic* shirt.*

I have no idea how hard a Genisius will be to find or if you will even be able to, it's just my first thought.

I'd recommend pinot grigio, that is my favorite wine, but I think it will depend on what region you are in and what the area is known for in terms of wine production. Mark says you'll probably see some Chianti and you should go with what is fresh and local. ("well not FRESH because wine is never fresh, but, you know") He advises hitting the internet before you go and asking locals for recommendations.

When we were in South Africa we went on several winery tours and they usually had a selection of wines pre-set for visitors to try at a moderate price. One gave us a menu and let us chose whatever we wanted, Still others had a menu but limited what they would open based on age and rarity. I'd think about starting there to see what kinds you like best and they you could compare that kind from other wineries.

I was just meaning if all medals of a particular Saint look alike or are there different artist renderings?
Sep. 4th, 2005 09:35 pm (UTC)
There tend to be 'accepted versions'. For instance, you can pretty much recognize any and all protrayals of St. Francis of Assisi - partially due to the style he is just generally shown in - partially due to the fact that his likeness was capture either during or right after he died. You nearly always see him with a little bird sitting on his hand although I don't know if there is a specific reason for it.

That is why I was hoping for a picture of Ghost Light's saint. I figured there would be a general way he was portrayed.
