If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

First loves blogfest entry

Alex is hosting the First Loves Blogfest today. 

The rules: Four loves one blogfest 

Entry:

First movie: Nightmare on Elm Street.
I can't explain why, but Freddy Crugar has always been great to me.

First song: Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler.
My Mother had me listen to this song when I was young, and it's been in my heart ever since.

First Book: "Little Women"
I remember reading this book beside a campfire during the summer out with my family. Though I don't actually remember how old I was.

First Person: Ryan Norris
We dated for one year in 6th grade. He broke it off with me in a grueling scene. He died a few years ago in a motor cycle accident.

Nightmare on Elm Street is an unusual selection!
Thanks for participating in my blogfest.

ugh--I never saw Nightmare, but Little Women was it for me, too! I even wrote like a 16-page "book report" on it when I was very little. I loved it that much-LOL! :D

Ryan Norris. That's too bad. :o| <3

I was terrified of Freddie Kreuger! My neightbour made me watch it when we were little, and I was so traumatized lol. I did love Little Women though, I've actually been wanting to reread it.

I'm sorry to hear about your first love (person), though.

I try so hard to sing Total Eclipse of the Heart for Karaoke but I always mess up the middle part.

Jamie Gibbs said...

Excellent choice with Bonnie Tyler. Have you seen the literal video for Total Eclipse of the Heart? It's hilarious!
