Movies You Watch at Least Once a Year

Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. Very casual. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Last week, there was a big response to the question about movies you're embarrassed to say you haven't seen. So let's start with another movie topic—movies you watch at least once a year, perhaps on New Year's Eve or your birthday or the night before Thanksgiving. Do you have a yearly appointment with any films?

2. One of my favorite people whose names I don't know is our dry cleaner. He's seemingly always in a good mood (at least the two times a month we interact), asks about the family, and brings my stuff to the car (which is key, since I'm usually carrying a squirmy 16-month-old). He could lose my favorite shirt and I'd still go back there. Are there any businesses you frequent specifically because of the great customer service?

3. When people look at me, they don't see a great jump-roper. And while it's been a few years since I verified my greatness, that's still my answer to this question—what's the weirdest thing you're really good at?

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
