For the last two months I’ve had my nose to the grindstone getting Women Who Didn’t Shut Up & Sit Down written and published. Now it’s time to have some fun. I’m part of a marvelous group of women called the RevGalBlogPals. It’s a blog ring for women in ministry and leadership positions in the church, women in seminary or college, and those who support them. Every Friday there’s always a fun meme to help us get to know each other and meet new people. Here is this week’s Friday Five.
Songbird muses: “It’s that time of year when the only new things on television are music/dance competitions (the 21st century answer to variety shows?). Yes, it’s the season of reruns.
This week the clock turned back to last fall and the Glee kids went back to school and still got “slushied,” and Michael hired his nephew on The Office, which was not something even he would be likely to repeat.
In honor of this annual Time Warp, please share five things worth a repeat. These could be books, movies, CDs, recipes, vacations, or even TV shows.”
Here are my reruns; things I can read, watch, or listen to over and over and over again.
- Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. One of my favorite books. I reread it this spring for One Book One Chicago, and got to hear Neil Gaiman speak at the Harold Washington Public Library. I stood in line for three hours to make sure I’d get a good seat. I am such a fangirl.
- Firefly and Serentiy. Wash and Zoe have what I consider to be the perfect biblical marriage. When River decided to fight, she decided when, where, and why. Female sovereignty at its best. Need I say more?
- CSI:NY. I tuned in for Gary Sinise. I stayed for the rest of the sexy cast. The boyfriend/fiance of my main character in the novel I’m working on is based on Det. Don Flack. Yes, I know how fangirl pathetic this makes me sound. See 1st rerun.
- Anything by The Cure. I’ve been bopping out and dancing to The Cure since the 80s, and I have no plans to stop. When I need a break I throw in one of my many CDs and become a Love Cat (YouTube video) bouncing all over the living room.
- Little Women. This has been a favorite book since my early 20s. I don’t know why I didn’t read it earlier, but I’m glad I did read it. It’s one of those books I go back to again and again and again to visit old friends.
I’m also going to post this over at Home Sanctuary for the Company Girl Friday Coffee to start having fun with that group again too. Warning: when developing and launching a product, you will lose contact with everyone you ever met online or in real life. Just so you know.
What is Home Sanctuary and who are the Company Girls? It’s a wonderful community Rachel Anne Ridge created to help us make our homes sanctuary. You won’t find any Martha Stewarts here; just women who want their houses/apartments/condos to be homes, and Rachel shows how to do that.
It’s Friday. Take a break. Relax. Have some coffee, and tell me:
What are some of your favorite reruns? Who are some of your old friends?

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting several RevGals in person and online, and it’s a wonderful community! Glad you are reconnecting.
Thanks for stopping in everyone! I hope all of you have a good weekend.
I am going to have to check out a few of those movies I had never heard of them before. Great post! Ohh and the Cure is awesome!
My reruns would be CSI New York and Las Vegas, the books by Jean M. Auel about the Earth’s Children, music by Pink and Halfdan Sivertsen, the movie PS I love you, and vacations to Aanderbakkan in Norway.
I’m heading over to Rev Gals to check it out. Visiting you from Home Sanctuary.
It was wonderful to see your NAME in the comments at RevGals–it has been a long time! I haven’t read Neil’s books and will look for them at the library. And it is wonderful to meet someone who has read “Little Women” as much as I have!
I heart Firefly! I’m with Songbird on Serenity being hard to re-watch due to sadness, but it’s still so worth it…perhaps I’ll pop those in for a little housecleaning background this weekend. Great play!
I’ll have to check out Firefly. Thanks for the tip to Home Sanctuary as well.
Good to “see” you again! Congrats on getting your book done. I don’t watch much of CSI:NY but I do watch the other two. I did like when they had the crossover episodes. That was fun. =p Hope you a lovely weekend.
I’m a huge Firefly fan, too, and I don’t get tired of watching it over and over. I’ve only seen Serenity twice, because it was hard to bring myself to watch it again. (Sad!) But I imagine both series and movie will be re-watched many times to come.
