Five Movies That Absolutely Sucked

Five Of Your Pet Peeves
1) The bath in Sarah's - now our - house. Specifically, the fact that the shower hose can't be wall-mounted, the fact that the shower has about as much force as a lethargic hamster, and the fact that the hot tap keeps falling off the bath.
2) The fact that if I get the bus to work from Stortford, it'll involve arriving at 8:10am and leaving work at 5:40pm, i.e. somewhat in excess of my rota'ed hours. That and leaving home in the morning before I've had time for breakfast. So, I think I'm going to be driving a lot in future.
3) I can't think of any more, but that'd do.

Five Things You Would Get If You Won The Lottery
1) I'd pay off my debts.

Five Little Known Things About You
1) I secretly quite like Lily Allen, but can't quite work out if it's socially acceptable to admit this
2) I got engaged at primary school to a friend called Julia. We were both about nine. It didn't last. I don't think either of us really knew what "getting engaged" meant.
3) If I take off my glasses, I can't see clearly more than about three inches in front of me.
4) I'm currently writing a novel called Very Cross, and have the plots for about half a dozen more kicking around in my subconscious. I'm determined to actually finish one...
5) Jane, my ex-, once photographed me wearing our flatmate Alexis's dress. Fortunately for my sanity, the photos didn't come out. Alexis complained that her dress had stretched.

3) A romantic walk with Sarah in the local park.
4) A Lord of the Rings-a-thon.
5) A Firefly/Serenity-a-thon.

Five Things You Want To Say To Five People (w/out saying names)
1) I love you to bits, but would it kill you to be a little teensy bit more romantic? *g*
2) You're a fantastic person, and if I'm honest I have rather a crush on you.
3) I forgive you, and the door's always open if you want to come back into my life.
4) I forgive you too, but you hurt me a heck of a lot and I don't like the way you made out it was my fault - from my perspective, you were the one being all unnecessarily unpleasant and unreasonable.
