Friendly Fill-Ins are four fun and easy statements to complete. Ellen of 15andmeowing provides the first two statements and the final two are offered by McGuffy Ann Morris of McGuffy's Reader. They try to make sure they will be fun to both answer and share. On Friday, the linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM. Please head to one of their sites, link up, and share your thoughts!
Here are this week's statements with my responses underlined:

1. The last movie I saw at the theater was ________.
2. The title of my autobiography would be ______________.
3. I would love to learn .
4. I am glad that I learned , because .
1. The last movie i saw at the theater was Prince Caspian, and i only went to see that because the church we were attending at the time rented out the theater for a Sunday morning and that was our church service. The last one before that was when that church did the same thing for The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Prior to those two, it was Little Big League back in 1994. No, i don't go to movies, just as i don't watch TV. Yes, i'm weird, it's okay, they know me on my planet.
2. The title of my autobiography would be For This I Went To College?
3. I would love to learn another language, and learn it very fluently. My bits of Spanish are mediocre at best, and i don't seem to make much progress at it.
4. I am glad that i learned to read, because reading is my favorite pastime, and if i couldn't read, i couldn't have online friends, either.
