And the answer is ...

I know. This totally dates me. But frakk it. I don't care. I liked this move. It was funny. And it's still funny - if dated. And if you ever saw it you might remember when johnny five says the line about "questions, queries, and posers..." Not to mention the hilarious line when Fisher Stevens' character says, "I'm sporting a tremendous ..."

But nevermind that, the real reason you're here is to find out who the heck won this week's price in the great give away.

This week's winner is Susan who you can find here. I don't know what she wants but on Friday I'll let you know what she chose as a prize and what's left. Meanwhile, I'm reading THE GIVER by Lois Lowry.
Very interesting. Old school.

What old school/classic have you read recently?

    1. It was fun. My brother and I are now sharing some of these fun movies we enjoyed back in the day with our nieces and nephews.

  4. I love Short Circuit! Ally Sheedy and robots. What's there not to like?

    The Giver! I taught that a few years ago when I was still in a classroom with 8th graders. It made me cheer and cry. I'm still not sure what really happened at the end. The best part was that the other English teachers and students had so many different interpretations of the ending that created some great discussion.

  5. Congrats to Susan! I have watched Short Circuit and loved it. I even made my son watch it because, even though it's old, it's timeless.

  6. I'm gonna see if Short Circuit is on Netflix. The Giver has been on my TBR list for too long. I'm reading The Catcher & the Rye.

    1. It's a fun movie. Anmd that's what I said about the Giver which is why I finally got it from my library. I am loving it, both as a reader AND an author.

  7. Haven't read any classics recently, but I'm toying with reading Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. For some reason, I never have.

  8. Thanks for the great prize and the link. As for Short Circuit, my boys loved that movie when they were little. Who wouldn't love Johnnie Five? I heard they're doing a remake.

  11. I LOVE this movie-- it was a favorite as a kid! And I love The Giver. It's possibly my favorite book of all time. Hope you enjoy it! I recently read some Agatha Christie, which definitely count as classics to me.

    1. That's always the trouble isn't? Too many books and not nearly enough time. I can't keep up with all the books I want to read.

  14. Aloha Marcy,

    Thanks again for your help/suggestions on my query over at Unicorn Bell.

    Really appreciate it :)

    For me, I picked up a hardcover copy of IT by Stephen King (for $1) so I am (for the third time) spending some time in the scary town of Derry, Maine... stay away!! Stay away!!

    New follower here, unless the Clown gets me.... Yikes!
