    Okay, I’m just going to go back to bed. I only did ten. Dee and Gwen did clips for all of theirs. I’m obviously the black sheep here.

      Right, not competitive at all. And, no matter what, we still love you!!! Because you’re Canadian and we can do nothing less.

  2. I adore your lists. I may have had images from movies (and TV) in my head as I read them… great Top 10s!

  3. Gwen Cease says:

    I totally love this list!! I could hear a lot of them in my head as I read.
