Friday Confessions: On Top Gun & Subway

Friday.  As usual, time to confess.  Linking up with Mamarazzi.


I confess…that I’m spending my evening with Maverick tonight, and I’m quite looking forward to it.  I love Top Gun.


I confess…I think it’s an absolute travesty that my friend Lindsay has never seen Top Gun.  This is why I’m forcing her to come and watch it with me tonight.  Seriously.  How can you have never seen TOP GUN?!?! 

I confess…that when I was a kid, I think I made most of my friends watch Top Gun when they had sleepovers at my place.  They probably hated it.  It was either that or Blue Hawaii.  My two favourite childhood movies.  Both still excellent choices.  You can’t go wrong with Tom Cruise (pre-crazies) and Elvis Presley (pre-fatty/death).

I confess…that any post where I get to play around with pictures of young hot Tom Cruise and young hot Elvis…is a good post.

I confess…that you know I must have had a lame week when all my so-called “confessions” have to do with Top Gun.

I confess…that I felt like a Subway newbie last night when I went in to grab a quick bite while shopping.  It was, quite possibly, the first time I’ve ever gone in and not automatically asked for a 12” Turkey & Bacon on cheese bread with swiss cheese and lots of mayo and southwest sauce.  I even accidentally asked for a 12” then had to correct myself.

I confess…that I was quite happy with my 6” Turkey on 9 grain with lots of veggies and honey mustard.  I didn’t expect it to taste so good, and still be in the “low-fat, low-calorie” department.


I confess…that I realize I have slipped from Top Gun to more diet talk.  We’ve gone from bad to worse.

I confess…that I’m going to have do something really bad next week to spice these confessions up.

Happy Friday and have a great weekend, everyone!!

I love Blue Hawaii! Actually, almost all Elvis movies are pretty entertaining. Happy Friday!

We watched it last night on AMC. The volleyball scene. Yum! That is all.
ANd my favorite Elvis movie is Follow That Dream. Check it out, it's great.

I don't think I have ever seen Top Gun and if you made me watch it at one of your sleepovers, I must have fell asleep (sorta like White Squall - blech)

Nicole said...

I've never seen Blue Hawaii but we got to see the house that was either featured in it or Elvis bought or something while in Oahu. I wasn't completely paying attn b/c the tour guide was getting on my nerves and I've never seen the movie...

and I'm really craving a flat bread sandwich from Subway. I love their flatbread!

Kara said...

Yes - Jill you have to try Subway's flat bread - it is pretty amazing!!!

Chell said...

My daughter n I watched Top Gun last night!

Yay for Top Gun!! Back when Tom Cruise didn't disgust me and Val Kilmer wasn't all bloaty.

Seeing that Subway picture made me drool. I'm all about the turkey and bacon!

Stacie said...

I miss Maverick Tom Cruise. He is just plain creepy now.

I've never seen Top Gun!!!!

My favorite sub at Subway is a 6" turkey on wheat! I get the light mayo AND honey mustard, because I'm a condiment spaz like that.

But boy is it delicious! You're doing so great with your new habits, congrats!
