“I’d like to thank Jillian, your bad reviews are by far the baddest….
to Mr. or Mrs. Liebster….
to my last name being Reed, thus the blog title…
to #blogging101….
to movies, popcorn, icees and raisinets and gaining 5lbs….”

When I started, I never thought a little blog from Chicago would make it this far. I’m so grateful! It started with a dream…..
[cue music]

is the mic on? (tap, tap) I still have 11 more things to say…

I was born and raised in Chicago.
I’m a borderline coffee a-holic. I really can stop anytime I want.
I crochet hats and scarves but have not had time lately
I like long walks on the beach
I am a Gemini, I am a Gemini (sign of the twins)
I’m average weight
(this is not
Oh well…
my top 3 movies are Pretty Woman, Midnight in Paris and more recently The Theory of Everything
My favorite is purple/peach combo or orange. Peach may be more of a fruit.
I was recently on the Steve Harvey show. I was in the audience, not a guest but please no autographs at this time.
I heart key lime pie.
Is that 11?, one more?
I record multiple talk shows

Let’s see…
The last time I borrowed from the library or a friend was in 1989 or 1999? Ok maybe last summer. My printer hates me so I was in the local library to print. I checked out a book just to make sure my card still worked.

I do like online quizzes but I completely heart Cyndi Lauper. In my head, we’ve met and she hearts me too.

Books: anything from The Prey series by John Sanford. I like mystery and intrigue.

My favorite cake: Carmel or Carrot, mainly because they begin with C.

The post I wrote about the “Lets Be Cops” screening. I chuckled when I wrote it and someone said they liked it, so now it’s one of my favs.

I love to laugh, I hate when I can’t

I’m not heavily into You Tube so I can’t really think of a video that always make me laugh but I did watch the “All about that Bass” video a few times. The guy doing the split, hilarious!

Of course Scandal is the hottest thing on TV at the moment. However, The Mysteries of Laura is super cool. (Shameless plug because she retweeted me) 👈

I always get pumped when I hear songs by Chris Brown, I pretend I’m a background dancer but don’t tell anyone, please!!! #cougarcrush

I haven’t updated yet but I recommend “The Theory of Everything” because it’s a beautiful film.

Did I do this correctly?! Probably not…but this has been so fun! I really am grateful! Thank you again!

I guess I better get to nominating! Need to think of questions, then update….


John Wick (now playing on USA channel)

Read Reed Review


I read WordPress: The Daily Post a few days ago and it caught my eye….
You get to spend a day inside your favorite movie, tell us which one that is, and what happens to you while you’re there.

I thought about a few of my favorites, Pretty Woman or Under The Tuscan Sun. I didn’t post but in my mind, I chose Midnight in Paris. I would spend the day in Paris and embark on a time travel adventure in the evening. But I’ve changed my mind….

Keanu Reeves as John Wick, is grieving the loss of his wife when Russian criminals break into his house to steal his 1969 Ford Mustang and eliminate the last gift from his late wife. Poor doggie Daisy.

I would step right into this movie for a day.
I’d have to lose about 30ish Lbs so I wouldn’t appear ready for food instead…
