5 things you didn't know about me

I've been reading other people's interesting "5 things you didn't know about me" posts. Then the hilarious Daddy Likey tagged me. I gotta say it's much easier to read others than to come up with my own. Here we go:

1). I'm a big fan of horror books and movies. I have a near complete collection of Richard Laymon's (one of the most underrated horror writers) books. Unfortunately he passed away a few years ago. I was pretty sad. But I've discovered more excellent horror writers since then. And I only go to movie theaters to see horror or action movies, as a result very few of my girlfriends would ever go with me. The only time I can remember that they went with me was to see "Dreamcatcher" (which is not a horror movie by my standard, more of a sci-fi), they all had to get up and walk out of the theater in the middle of it, including a guy friend.

2). I loved LOVED "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (and "Angel"). I still watch it sometimes for old time's sake. One thing I miss about the show, besides the witty banters, is Buffy's outfits. I always thought she had the cutest clothes in the world.

3). Did I mention that I wish I had a corporate job like an executive assistant to a CEO so I could wear sexy secretary outfits, like a body-skimming silk blouse with a tight pencil skirt and 4" Prada heels sauntering down the hallway? Yep I envy those girls. Now I'm sure they'd tell me how much work it is to get gussied up every morning. But since I don't have such a job, I like to think that it must be so much fun getting dressed up to go to work. And you'd have a great excuse to go shopping for new clothes all the time.

4). I love rollercoasters. I love Canada's Wonderland. I go there every summer. Sometime years I even get a season pass. And ever since they built a huge outlet mall beside the park, I go there even more often. We would spend half a day at the park, when we couldn't stand the heat anymore, we'd go to the mall to shop, it has all my favorite stores.

5). I live such a simple and boring life. One of my favorite pasttimes on the weekend is that we go to Costco, walk around eating all the free samples and leave without actually buying anything. We don't find shopping at Costco a good deal for us 'cause there are only 2 people to feed. If we bought food in big packages, they'd go bad for sure. Once in a while I pick up a book or two there, but it's all about the free samples ;)

Speaking of Costco, I think we're due for a trip there. Before I go, I tag Blooming Lily, Diamond Crowns, Fashion Asia, The Fashionable, Pretty Eastern. I don't know if any of you have been tagged already. If so, I guess you can ignore me :).

So what do you wear when you go to Costco? Maybe it would be fun to dress up like a secretary, go at lunch, and feel beautiful while you were walking around eating their samples.

I did get tagged last week by Rebecca...However I loved Buffy and the story line with her and Angel. Sigh!! I thought she was funny with Spike too.
