  1. LouAnn,
    Because you ask so kindly…
    Annie Hall must be the movie that brings me bliss, each and every time I watch it.

    And my fedora hat, which covers the mess that is my hair…
    Le Clown

    • ah, a fedora–my favourite too–though mine is straw and falls off in the slightest wind
      I know you will not be able to believe this but I have never seen Annie Hall–though I have been known to dress like her (when I was younger)–a gap I must fill

  2. My bliss movie is either of two,, Ben Hur or The Alamo [John Wayne preferable] my favourite author is Terry Brooks.. 😉

    • Thank you – John Wayne was one of a kind–and the more I learn about him, the more I am impressed
      Will have to look into Terry Brooks….

  6. Lou, it’s impossible for me to narrow down writers, movies are book to just one, but here’s a couple. Ralph Waldo Emerson — one of my bliss writers. Love Actually and Boys on the Side — two of my bliss movies and my bliss person, well that’s hubby. (bliss clothes — jeans, tee shirt). Bliss activity…painting, reading, writing….see what I mean? 😉

    • you are much like me–I can never narrow down books or authors but I agree with you about Love Actually–it is one of my favourites; jeans usually but I need to lose about seven pounds and they will be comfortable again–thanks for playing along–my bliss person is the same as yours–but my hubby not yours (though from your description yours sounds pretty darn good!)

  7. I meant “movies or books…” sigh. I wish WP would give a commenter a way to undo stoopid grammar errors. That would bring me some bliss. Jeez.

  8. 3. My favorite “bliss” activity is listening to John Prine while taking a walk.

    Thanks for asking.

    • and thank you for answering — now I better find out who John Prine is

      It’s A Wonderful Life is a movie I never tire of
      tomorrow I will share my answers too

  15. My bliss food, the high indulgence version: cheesecake and coffee. The healthy version: apples and peanut butter. My bliss activities would include losing myself in a good book, going to the beach (or anywhere near the ocean really), and spending time with family/friends.

    • what kind of cheesecake? I love losing myself in a good book–one of my favourite gifts is a gift card to a book store

  17. favorite bliss words–peace, tranquility, happiness

  18. I like this (and so do many others from the response rate!)
    1. holiday
    2. cookies & cream icecream, and salmon roe (not in the same bite!)
    3. getting hugs from my girls
    4. a frivolous furry vest thing…its like wearing a blanket to work
    5. Tracy Chevalier
    6. Under the Tuscan Sun
    7. my girls & my parents

    • holiday–good answer and I loved Under the Tuscan Sun too–my parents were my bliss but they have departed this earth, so they are my heavenly bliss I guess now-
      -will have to check out Chevalier
      a furry vest that is like wearing a blanket–definitely bliss

  19. My bliss activity is watching movies – I love them all, though my favourite of all time is Harold and Maude. Chocolate is blissful, my husband is still my favourite and most comfortable person to spend time with, author is WO Mitchell or Bryce Courtenay and word would be quiet. Combine all of those and it would be a very blissful day.. possibly boring to others, but perfect for me.

    • I love your day and your choices–they sound like bliss to me times two

      • Ive been home sick this week, so am indulging in a bit of quiet, movies and chocolate. Its been nice.. but Id actually prefer to get back to work.

      • I am so sorry you are sick- (((hugs)))

      • 🙂 Thanks – Im on the way to feeling better. The kids brought home the plague last week, which has unfortunate side effects when coupled with the MS. Ive got a bit of a speed wobble, but it gets me out of housework. Theres always an upside. 😉

      • I am glad you can see the upside–now take care of yourself 🙂

  20. bliss clothing-a soft expensive black handmedown sweater from my daughter – i’d never have spent the money-that is so ratty when i walk little black fuzzies fly everywhere but its warm and comforting. bliss activity – canning. bliss person-my kids. bliss movie-right now my guilty bliss pleasure is secretariat-silly and i know it will move off the list but for now. bliss word-serenity

    • I like your blisses- particularly serenity–and I love other people’s canning – Secretariat–must look for it at the library
