2. My _____________ is ___________________.
3. _________ is a moment I will never forget.
4. Have you ever heard of _________?
My answers:
1. I am particular about what movies I will watch. If I am going to invest in the time to watch a movie, it better be good or at least have Nic Cage in it.
2. My Sammy is taking good care of me. I think he knows how sad I am so he is with me almost constantly.
3. Sitting next to Alec Baldwin is a moment I will never forget. I apologize if I sound like a broken record to those that have been reading my blog a long time. For anyone who doesn’t know, I was an extra on 30 Rock in 2008 and Alec Baldwin sat next to me during a filming break. I could not speak to him though, extras are treated like dirt.
4. Have you ever heard of Stumptown? It is a crime drama that started in September. We just started watching it and are really enjoying it.

For my flashback, I have a short video of Millie from 2 years ago. He used to love to steal our jackets off the back of chairs.
