A is for Aardvark and Auntie Mame

This is my first time participating in the A to Z blog challenge – oh, thank you, no need for applause, you are too kind.

I didn’t really have any theme picked out because I just kind of leaped into this challenge without really knowing much about it; but after contemplating it for a while I think my theme will be random thoughts and movie selections. Kind of jumbled and unrelated, just like my brain.

For some weird reason, the first thing that popped into my head when I thought, “A is for…”, was the scene from Blackadder The Third where Blackadder is trying to re-write the dictionary because Baldrick has burnt the only copy. You can enjoy a bit of it here.

A is also for one of my all-time favorite movies: Auntie Mame (Rosalind Russell version). I want to be Auntie Mame. This move makes me feel better when I am down, and I often watch it when I’m sick – it gives me the “all betters”. Other favorite movies that start with A? Alien, Aliens, America’s Sweethearts (another favorite when I’m down or sick).

Well, speaking of sick, I’m off to the doctor this afternoon. I cannot kick this stupid virus, and I need to follow up with her from that time when my blood sugar was over 500. I smell more pills a-comin’!



  1. Hello, fellow 1st time A to Z blogger and Auntie Mame fan...I believe there is only ONE version and you got it right! Fun way to jump in!

  2. I, too, am a first timer on this challenge. I picked your blog to visit because I liked the title, although I never really watched Little House on...etc etc Never seen Auntie Mame, either. Maybe I'll have to now. Please visit my blog at http://olivegroveview.blogspot.gr/
    Good luck!

  3. I loved Auntie Mame but had forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder, I hope it's on Netflix!

  4. I love Auntie Mame, and blackadder. Fantastic Post, welcome to A to Z 2014

  5. You know I thought about writing about Aardvarks as well, but I don't know anything about them and have never even actually met one. Although they have it pretty good cos they must get to be first in line all the time. Visiting from A-Z and Australia!
    N.B: Not Austria.
