1:42 am
Just1Mar

yes everyday maid service but they won't wash your dishes (no dishwasher)

jillibus

oh la de da!
1:42 am
Just1Mar

sea is right there too jilli....you have your pick

westford

2:27 am
westford

I check the words off manually

2:36 am
Sally-catlover

The e words are avoiding me
2:37 am
joshuavorbis

don't forget the ever-present er4 as in er**while

2:40 am
sprite

hehehe BabbleRabble... well I might!
2:40 am
Sally-catlover

2:40 am
sprite

thanks 1Mar.
2:41 am
BabbleRabble

what did the little lion learn today, sprite?
2:42 am
sprite

to not bite me when playing, I hope. And to be quiet when the kids and I read LOTR. Also that he is much much loved.
2:43 am
BabbleRabble

many worthwhile lessens today
2:43 am
Just1Mar

however, that is not to say that the k is used muchly (my word) not as the first letter
2:43 am
sprite

we try. He is easy to love for sure!

2:51 am
sprite

exactly BabbleRabble. Very Dickens.
2:51 am
Just1Mar

lol west
2:51 am
BabbleRabble

which is hyperbole without reality
2:51 am
joshuavorbis

what i want to know is, who killed all the door nails
2:52 am
westford

the hammer I think
2:52 am
westford

that is such a strange expression
2:52 am
BabbleRabble

I did not even know doors grew nails
2:52 am
Just1Mar

I wanna know what the heck a door nail is!
2:52 am
westford

lol
2:52 am
joshuavorbis

when i find the hammer that killed the door nails i'm really going to read it the riot act
2:52 am
westford

keeps your door from falling off?
2:53 am
Just1Mar

if i had a hammer, I
2:53 am
Just1Mar

I'd hammer in the morning
2:53 am
westford

ooh good another song
2:53 am
sprite

when your only tool is a hammer, you are inclined to see every problem as a nail.
2:54 am
joshuavorbis

hammers work real well on nails
2:54 am
Just1Mar

they do!
2:55 am
sprite

oh el5 you are in today's grid! And valid as well!
2:55 am
BabbleRabble

great job bab I bookmarked the site

of course, sprite
2:57 am

great site BabbleRabble, who knew?
2:57 am
elder

Sprite. yes :)
2:58 am
sprite

were you serious when you were making rather racistical comments on the Polish people recently in chat?
2:58 am
joshuavorbis

uh, no. in fact i was acting a fool to make fun of people who would be racist to the poles
2:59 am
Just1Mar

racist comments on poles?
2:59 am
Just1Mar

do you mean Polish jokes?
2:59 am
BabbleRabble

good day, elder
2:59 am
westford

he couldn't find the zl word
2:59 am
sprite

am glad. You made some of us really wonder if you knew what you were saying, and fearing you did.
3:00 am
joshuavorbis

i have dated one too many wonderful polish women to ever make a joke with any sincerity and malice about them
3:00 am
westford

I always liked Polish jokes and I'm half Polish
3:00 am
elder

Hello Babble.
3:01 am
elder

Babble to the PB :)
3:01 am
sprite

no it was no joke, and I am glad to hear you weren't slighting a people.
3:01 am
Just1Mar

my hubby is Polish (although of Jewish extraction)
3:01 am
Just1Mar

wonder if there is any distinction?...
3:02 am
BabbleRabble

the usual suffixes get a workout today
3:02 am
sprite

probably, 1Mar, in cultural background?
3:02 am
westford

some Poles are Jewish and some are Christian
3:02 am
joshuavorbis

i think i said something about polish people being good at hiding, like the zl word
3:02 am
sprite

they sure do, BabbleRabble, find one, find a heap today.
3:02 am
westford

the suffixes are wonderful today
3:02 am
Just1Mar

actually his parents are Polish, he was born in Germany after the war in an internment camp....they stopped speaking Polish once they were forced out to live the war in Siberia
3:02 am
sprite

yeah and them being sneaky and things like that.
3:02 am
joshuavorbis

i don't know of any actual evidence or lame jokes about polish people hiding, so i thought i was safe, but words have a funny way of coming across as different things to different people - sorry for the misunderstanding
3:03 am
sprite

I am glad I asked, joshua. Thanks for explaining. You gave me a scare.
3:03 am
Just1Mar

the zl word?
3:04 am
westford

for money
3:04 am
joshuavorbis

sorry, i forget sometimes that people on this site don't know me and my manner of making jokes. i should be more careful about that sort of thing
3:04 am
Just1Mar

that's what I thought but still don't get the connection ...sigh
3:05 am
Just1Mar

a lot of the so-called Polish jokes here in Canada are substituted for Newfie (Newfoundland) jokes
3:05 am
sprite

yeah that is why I asked then, about individuals who can be all that, but a whole people never can.
3:05 am
joshuavorbis

i have definitely heard bad newfie jokes over the years
3:05 am
sprite

to find out whether you were joking or not. Glad you were.
3:06 am
joshuavorbis

and my share of racist jokes as a child growing up in the rural south
3:06 am
Just1Mar

and in Toronto, the Pakistanis (Pakis) are the substitution of choice
3:06 am
Just1Mar

I thought your heritage was Italian, westie?
3:07 am
sprite

for us Dutch it used to be the Belgian people, but things are changing here. When I overhear the kids telling jokes, it is not about any people, just about persons.
3:07 am
westford

that's my married name
3:07 am
Just1Mar

yes Sprite that is true
3:07 am
westford

but no it's not italian it's scots irish
3:07 am
joshuavorbis

i still have to deal with relatives who love to tell oh so clever racist jokes about obama
3:08 am
sprite

scots irish... I am jealous! Am reading Diana Gabaldon atm and wow, I'd love to learn those language.
3:08 am
Just1Mar

but we are such a silly race....we are such a small tribe of people with regards to our humongous universe
3:08 am

*languages
3:09 am
Just1Mar

it's such a crying shame that we can't just all live in peace
3:09 am
BabbleRabble

communicating effectively is so much more difficult than it is perceived
3:09 am
westford

he even has some Ojibwa on his mother's side
3:09 am
westford

yes just it is
3:09 am
Just1Mar

was reading about the "mustard" flap today.....I mean how stupid is that?!
3:09 am
westford

we are the world
3:09 am
joshuavorbis

as hard as communicating effectively is, it's somewhere between 10 and 600 times harder on the internet
3:10 am
westford

what's that I haven't heard
3:10 am
sprite

so very true
3:10 am
Just1Mar

and did you know that the per capita consumption of Ketchup in the USA ia a whopping 66 pounds per person!!!!
3:10 am
BabbleRabble

people often take for granted that what he or she believes is a truism
3:11 am
sprite

omg 1Mar... that is so much!
3:11 am
Just1Mar

Obama ordered a cheeseburger and wanted dijon or some other strong mustard, fox news went berserk
3:11 am
joshuavorbis

none of that ketchup consumption comes from me. i really dislike that stuff. what a pointless condiment
3:11 am
westford

3:12 am
Just1Mar

oh westie, how quebecoise of you!
3:12 am
joshuavorbis

to be fair to fox news, they go berserk on a daily basis. i think it's as standard as going to commercial
3:12 am
joshuavorbis

i put tzatziki sauce on my fries
3:12 am
Just1Mar

and I know the Dutch love mayo on their french fries! right spritey?
3:13 am
westford

I think it must have come down here from Quebec
3:13 am
sprite

mayo or frietsaus (fries sauce). I prefer the latter, being less fat and fresher to the taste.
3:13 am
Just1Mar

that is very Greek of you Josh! heheh
3:13 am

3:15 am

freedom of the press is touted as a watchdog to keep government in line. One old saw states the duty of the press is to comfort the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable. What we have now is a press with an agenda; political operatives.
3:15 am

3:16 am
westford

bulb I guess
3:17 am
westford

clove is just one little one isn't it
3:17 am
sprite

ketchup: only the hot variety.
mustard: groningse or zaanse, or french, good and sharp.
garlic: in any shape and recipe
freedom of press: as long as there is respect, which too often isn't
3:17 am
joshuavorbis

newspapers have lost their income
3:17 am
Just1Mar

ineffective communication is an obnubilation
3:22 am
sprite

it is a complicated thing, communication. You need to find words for what you think you want to say, then you need to say it, the other needs to hear it, and then interpret the words as they think they are meant. It is amazing it works as often as it does!
3:22 am
elder

Babble, crumbs. Did you swallow a dictionary this morning/last night :)
3:24 am
elder

Good analogy there, Sprite.
3:25 am
BabbleRabble

great communication, sprite

bye Sally!

3:27 am

3:29 am
BabbleRabble

3:54 am
Just1Mar

3:56 am

How will they know who has old or new ?>
3:56 am
Just1Mar

3:56 am
sprite

they might outlaw selling them?
3:57 am
elder

aah.
3:57 am

I was very inspired by your excellent bio, and decided to start off on a sort of film project of my own - I am working through a list of all those great movies everyone talks about, but I have never actually managed to see
8:26 am
movieman

Go on Trif......
8:27 am
movieman

Good idea trif.....
8:27 am
Trifioso

Started this week with Lawrence of Arabia, and found lots of lists on the Web of various organizations that put out their own Top 100 lists. Do you have one that you in particular could recommend???
8:28 am
movieman

There are loads I wish I could have seen at the cinema....Star Wars, 2001, Halloween, The Fly, Pulp Fiction.....the list is endless
8:28 am
movieman

And Terminators 1 & 2
8:29 am
Trifioso

Yes, I do realize my experience is diminished, sitting in my living room, sometimes in plain daylight, watching the films alone, but at least I am seeing them...
8:30 am

I think there's no better place to watch a movie than in your own home
8:30 am

Empire magazine did a list last year of the top 500 movies, you can find the list at their website at empireonline.com

Hey Trif - if you have cable you should be able to get TCM. 95% movies, usually oldies and no commercials. Check it out
8:31 am
BabbleRabble

I missed out on Cinderella and the Golden Dentures
8:32 am
mom2han8

I know it is a cliche, but Citizen Kane... and I also love Touch of Evil and The Dark at the Top of the Stairs (all Orson Welles).
8:33 am
hootowl

One BIG advantage to watching at home is having the ability to say "I HATE THIS MOVIE" and going on to the next one.
8:33 am
movieman

continuing the movie theme, anyone here seen or planning to see 'Star Trek'?
8:33 am
Trifioso

Hi hootowl, I do have cable, but I don't think TCM is included. BOO. Don't have a Blockbuster near here either....sadder still. Luckily, my local library is linked with 25 or so others, and they have tons of DVDs to check out
8:34 am
mom2han8

Yes... can't wait!
8:34 am
Alexis Elise

My boyfriend saw Star Trek and said it was great
8:34 am
movieman

I saw it on Tuesday, and was totally blown away!!!
8:34 am
mom2han8

My husband always laughs at me, as I cannot resist good Sci-fi or a good Western!
8:34 am
hootowl

well the TCM is part of our basic. You could call and ask whoever provides for you
8:34 am
mom2han8

Saw Iron Man last week...
8:35 am
mom2han8

Trif... netflix is great also.
8:35 am
hootowl

Golden Dentures BR????
8:35 am
mom2han8

They took TCM off of our basic... now we have to have the "silver" package to get it... so I got it!
8:35 am
Trifioso

Movieman, I think Tor saw it, and he really like it!
8:36 am
hootowl

all the reviews around here have been good but I don't trust our critics
8:36 am
Alexis Elise

If you want a great movie I don't think it gets any better than The Count of Monte Cristo
8:36 am
mom2han8

Have never seen that Alexis.
8:37 am
Alexis Elise

It's so good. I didn't want to watch it cuz it sounds like a "guy movie"... but it's one of my favorites now
8:37 am
hootowl

You must remember that opinions are just that. If a reviewer says a movie is great that means it met HIS criteria. That may not be yours. Same for friends & family
8:38 am
Alexis Elise

That's true hootowl... but usually when a movie is terrible, the opinion is universal
8:38 am
mom2han8

Everyone carried on so about Iron Man, so I finally rented it (and I love Robert Downey, Jr.)... have to admit that it was a little slow in the beginning, but in the end it was alright. I guess I just expected more.
8:38 am
Alexis Elise

I started watching Showgirls the other night cuz it was on and I'd never seen it. I made it through 17 minutes (I don't know how). It was the worst piece of garbage ever made
8:39 am
mom2han8

Give me a rainy day and a couple of old Cary Grant movies and I'm a happy woman!
8:39 am
mom2han8

Luckily I missed that one, Alexis.
8:39 am
cherlyq63

I did not like the very end of movie though, thought it was dorky
8:39 am
Alexis Elise

I've never seen a Cary Grant movie
8:39 am
hootowl

that works only if you have 2-3 critics watching the same movie. Here there are 4 critics - they go to diff movies and no comparisons available
8:39 am
mom2han8

OMG... you don't know what you are missing!
8:39 am
cherlyq63

iron man I mean
8:40 am
mom2han8

My absolute favorite is one that is almost never on, called People Will Talk... way ahead of its time.
8:40 am
hootowl

well they admitted the iron man movie was a setup for the next. That'll be the true test
8:40 am
mom2han8

Yeah Cherly know whatyou mean.
8:40 am
Alexis Elise

Maybe I'll check that out
8:40 am
mom2han8

Oh, you should.
8:40 am
movieman

I personally like referring to imdb.com for movie reviews, 'cos the reviews and comments there are from ordinary folk, and not those who get paid for telling you what a film is like
8:41 am
mom2han8

The other great one is Notorious... with Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant... Hitchcock... awesome!
8:41 am
hootowl

Cary Grant - Father Goose, North by Northwest, any of the old comedies....
8:41 am
Alexis Elise

Here in Chicago we have a reviewer named Dean Richards who does his "Dean's List" reviews. I think he's always right on.
8:41 am
hootowl

any hitchcock!
8:41 am
cherlyq63

I know movieman, I always thought that about paid critics, especially if movie theaters paying them
8:42 am
movieman

How can anyone mention Hitch and not mention 'Psycho'?!!!
8:42 am
mom2han8

It seemed that Iron Man 1 was just a set-up for Iron Man 2.. LOL.
8:42 am
mom2han8

Movieman... I have never been able to get up the courage to watch Psycho... seriously I think it would scare the daylights out of me... and I need to shower in peace, LOL.
8:42 am
cherlyq63

back then actors and actresses had to build the suspense, now adays the props do it
8:42 am
Alexis Elise

Isn't Psycho kinda lame? Only one person dies... I hardly consider that a horror flick

When you are familiar with the critic and know he likes your kibd of stuff it works. But when you are always at odds it is not helpful

good call movieman... but still
8:43 am

I read the reviews in The New York Times on Friday. I usually find them helpful.

hey MM, whats the gossip on the release date for Terminator?

Ah, but you also have to think about the movies that 'Psycho' influenced

Batman was fun when he was normal - now it's all dark, dark, dark. No fun

8:45 am
Atalante

really? REALLY? WOOOOOOOOT]
8:45 am
Alexis Elise

It's always funny when a movie gets bad reviews and nobody sees it in the theater, but then it becomes a massive hit. I think reviewers can prevent people from going to see really good movies
8:46 am
mom2han8

Prefer the Tim Burton Batman movies.
8:46 am

Citizen Kane was slated when it was first released

Dark Knight is great
8:53 am

How was that? I did not see Superman Returns.
8:53 am

So Brett Ratner (director of the Rush Hour films) did it instead

Dark Night was the first Batman movie I actually liked
8:54 am

I think I saw one Rush Hour film (Jackie Chan, right?). It was ok.
8:54 am

Pretty good mom, I thought Brandon Routh did a good job
8:54 am
Atalante

I saw Dark Knight in IMAX. omg. wonderful
8:54 am
mom2han8

OH, I LOVE the first two Batman movies with Michael Keaton that Tim Burton directed.
8:54 am

Is Brandon Routh the director? Who plays Superman?
8:55 am

I love a good IMAX movie
8:55 am

My nearest IMAX cinema is in London, over 70 miles away

Brandon Routh played Superman, mom

I caught 300 on IMAX. It was very cool

There is one in NYC... 20 minutes, but I just can't stand the way it makes me feel.
8:55 am

Brett Ratner directed
8:55 am
Atalante

Came up from Kent for it
8:56 am
mom2han8

Thanks MM... never heard of him. Yes. You told me the director already, duh!
8:56 am
mom2han8

Yes... 300 looked good... but neither my husband nor my kid was interested!
8:57 am
mom2han8

I love The Mummy movies... just think the special effects are great. When I saw the trailers for The 300, it looked like the same kind of animation.
8:57 am

The cinema I go to, Cineworld in Cambridge, has started showing 3-D films, so I may go and see Coraline and Ice Age 3
8:57 am

Couldn't tell you... I never heard of the mummy movies

Hey there - can anybody clue me for a5 - 14? Please!
9:00 am
Pinikula

some movies are all hyped up with trailers that show you the 30 seconds of the best parts, but the remainder leave much to be desired...
9:01 am
Uniquity

Didn't enjoy Van helsing..I've forgotten it, really. Not a good sign!
9:01 am
mom2han8

Does anyone know if they are making a movie of The Historian, speaking of vampires... Really great book. Spooky and scary. It would make a great movie.
9:01 am

hi bum!
9:01 am
Atalante

it truly was awful, apart from watching Hugh jackman's expressions when you could just see he was thinking "I have to say THAT?"
9:01 am
cherlyq63

oops de 4 6
9:01 am
Uniquity

The Historian was lovely..although I think it would translate very poorly into a movie. The psyche would be lost.
9:01 am
Soodlebum

Hi guys!!
9:01 am
Pinikula

thx cherly
9:02 am
mom2han8

I thought it would be a thinking person's Dracula.
9:02 am
Uniquity

I am *very* concerned about the fact that Time Traveller's WIfe is a movie. When it comes, I shan't be watching it.
9:02 am
movieman

The Historian IS being made into a movie, due for release next year
9:02 am
mom2han8

Thanks MM
9:02 am
Alexis Elise

I agree Pini... I was so mad that Baby Mama was advertised as a comedy. They used the only 5 funny scenes in the trailer
9:02 am
mom2han8

I don't know The Time Traveller's Wife. Sorry.
9:02 am
Uniquity

Hollywood needs to back off the turning books into movies. I know it has always been done, but it is happening a lot more lately. Original ideas all sold out?
9:03 am
mom2han8

there are very few good comedies, in my opinion.
9:03 am
mom2han8

I really am not a fan of the Judd Apatow stuff at all, though I loved the TV series he did, Freaks and Geeks.

Some great books make terrible movies and some so-so books make great movies. It's really all about who visualizes them.
9:04 am

I always thought the 80s were the last great decade for comedies
9:04 am

Angels and Demons comes out tomorrow.

I rather lilke Rome's take on A&D...
9:05 am

Did not much like DaVinci Code.... think Tom Hanks is miscast, but I will certainly rent Angels and Demons when it comes out.
9:05 am

Stephen King short stories make wonderful movies
9:05 am

Airplane!, The Naked Gun, Big, Beetlejuice etc

really - rekiss is not a word.... i beg to differ
9:07 am
mom2han8

Not odd, just your taste.
9:07 am

Sure you don't mean John Hughes, rather than Chris Columbus Mom

Come on movieman... what about Dumb & Dumber, Euro Trip, The Pick of Destiny... I like the more recent comedies

Drop Dead Fred was on the same lines as Beetlejuice...
9:07 am

love the old time movies
9:07 am
mom2han8

Look how many people liked The 40-year-old Virgin and Knocked Up.
9:07 am

Drop Dead Fred was great
9:07 am

I can't believe "deskier" isn't a word. My desk is way deskier than your desk.
9:07 am

Dumb and Dumber is one of my all time LEAST favorite movies... prefer Tommy Boy in that genre.
9:07 am

No way pini, DDF was garbage

death to smoochie... loved that... also, Dogma!
9:08 am
movieman

Unlike Beetlejuice
9:08 am
Alexis Elise

Haha, mom. Dumb and Dumber is one of my favorite movies. I hated Tommy Boy
9:08 am
mom2han8

Fargo... really enjoyed that! But not a huge fan of other Coen Brothers movies.
9:08 am
cherlyq63

hated through momma from the train almost as much as dumb and dumber
9:08 am
Pinikula

it was probably just the timing of when it came out and the age of my kids, mm...still like the title phrase...we used it around the house jokingly
9:08 am
mom2han8

Obviously we have different taste, Alexis...that's ok!
9:08 am
movieman

Can't stand comedies with too many fart and poo gags
9:08 am
Alexis Elise

Dogma is great. Very smart. Unfortunately it was the last good movie Kevin Smith has made
9:09 am
mom2han8

Thought Throw Momma From the Train had some really beautiful, bittersweet moments... like the part with the change... actually made me cry!
9:09 am
Pinikula

I agree with you cherly!
9:09 am
mom2han8

Yes Alexis I agree. Though I liked Jersey Girl. Not terrible.
9:09 am
mom2han8

Maybe because I'm from Jersey, LOL!
9:10 am
Alexis Elise

Question for everyone: What would you say was the worst movie you have seen?
9:10 am
mom2han8

Though I don't know how they got away with using a title already used in a Jamie Gertz '80s comedy.
9:10 am
cherlyq63

my favorite movie of all times was the king and I
9:10 am
Atalante

van helsing
9:10 am
mom2han8

Hands down, The Wiz... walked out of the theater!
9:10 am
Pinikula

So, if you had to pick just 3 movies as your all-time favorites, what would you pick?
9:10 am
mom2han8

Love The King and I Cherly.
9:10 am
movieman

Worst movie for me: A Man Apart, starring Vin Diesel
9:10 am
mom2han8

Pini... don't think I could do it!
9:11 am
movieman

Impossible for me to pick just a top 3 pini
9:11 am
Alexis Elise

So far, so good. I haven't seen the Wiz or A Man Apart
9:11 am
cherlyq63

Die Hard, Independence day and The King and I
9:11 am
Uniquity

Blues Brothers...Wayne's World...Those have been favourites for most of my life, so I always think of them first.
9:12 am
mom2han8

Romantic comedy: Pretty Woman; Classic: People Will Talk; Sci-Fi: Star Wars (the original, or #4, or whatever they are calling it now).
9:12 am
movieman

But if I had to choose: Slumdog, Sin City and Pulp Fiction
9:12 am
Pinikula

I'd be curious to see what others like (so I can see if I've missed anything)...how about putting a "short list" (length of your choosing) in our profiles???
9:12 am
Alexis Elise

Best 3: The Departed, Apocalypto, Natural Born Killers... those are the first 3 that come tomind
9:12 am

9:15 am
Uniquity

Ugh. Did not like the dark knight. Luckily I had a pass to an advanced screening so I didn't pay for it.
9:15 am

Kiki's is possibly the cutest film ever! As are most of the other Ghibli films
9:15 am

Sin City, Slumdog, Pulp Fiction, 2001, American Werewolf in London, Shaun of the Dead, Kill Bill vol. 1, Pan's Labyrinth, RoboCop and the Fly

9:16 am

The difference in what the guys like v/s what the girls like is very funny
9:16 am
Atalante

And The Wall. Is that a film or a music video?
9:16 am
mom2han8

MM... slumdog millionaire or is there another slumdog?
9:16 am

The special effects in The Fly are still amazing, even after nearly 25 years
9:18 am
Uniquity

A Beautiful Mind..
9:18 am

marly and me is cute, thats about it
9:18 am
mom2han8

The Wall holds a special place in my heart... reminds me of freshman year in HS... riding the bus....good times.
9:19 am
Atalante

One film I truly love, though I can never say why, is Black Hawk Down
9:19 am
Atalante

me too, mom. It reminds me of university years and discovering so much
9:19 am
movieman

And Jeff Goldblum has never bettered his performance as Seth Brundle
9:19 am
Pinikula

thx cherly * that settles that *
9:19 am
mom2han8

Uni... I agree but they changed so much from what was true. I used to see that guy wandering around Princeton. He was quite the character... quite scary, too.
9:20 am
mom2han8

OMG... my husband rented Black Hawk Down and I got through the first five minutes... realized Iknew how it all came out... UGH...just could not watch it.
9:20 am
Atalante

I just loved that Orlando Bloom died in the first 2 minutes. It was amusing for a LotR fan
9:20 am
movieman

What does everyone else think about 'The Fly'?
9:20 am
Pinikula

I work on the campus where Animal House was filmed...(when I was in HS)...kinda of odd because it's a movie I probably wouldn't care about except that I can relate to alot of the things on campus...
9:21 am
mom2han8

Saving Private Ryan was also entirely too intense for me, though I made it through. It was a harrowing experience. Can't imagine having lived through it.
9:21 am
mom2han8

MM... remember loving it back in the day.
9:21 am
Alexis Elise

Anyone else here seen The Way of the Gun?

Puulp Fiction for me, Sam Jackson is God!!!!
9:24 am
Alexis Elise

How about American History X! That's one of the greatest films ever!
9:24 am
mom2han8

The sad thing about Butch Cassidy, The Perfect Storm, Black Hawk Down, Romeo and Juliet... is that you know how they will end... you wish they could end differently.
9:24 am
Atalante

equally glad to have missed Led Zep
9:24 am
cherlyq63

I grew up in that era and missed it

Pulp Fiction was certainly groundbreaking.

sleepless in seattle was good

Metropolis...the revolutionary war one? That was a weird movie!

have you seen the original one, Uni? you should find the anime version, it's both adorable and brilliant
9:30 am
cherlyq63

suspect with cher in it was good
9:30 am
mom2han8

Was it Richard Dreyfus and John Goodman?
9:31 am
Uniquity

If we are talking about the same film, I have seen the original. I like it a lot in a weird way. It is a conflicting sort of a movie.
9:31 am

9:31 am
Pinikula

(had to look, cherly, it was "Always")
9:32 am

I saw it cherly, but cannot remember the name of it. I think the original was Spencer Tracy.
9:32 am
Pinikula

* poof *
9:32 am
Atalante

I like both versions of Metropolis, but the anime version is a good example of how a remake can be new and different and just as good
9:32 am
mom2han8

They renamed the remake, if I am not mistaken.
9:33 am
mom2han8

Yes... Always. That was it. Don't remember what the original was called.
9:33 am
movieman

Ata, the anime version was only loosely based on the original
9:33 am

yes, that s it pini, good movie
9:33 am

Also like Pump Up the Volume and Heathers.. if you are in a Christian Slater kind of mood!

No, that was a typo Cherly, LOL.

HAH. Cute anime fire engines? Have you seen the original, Ata? I watched it for a class I took last year.

the chunky movies?

Like Misery too

9:39 am
periwinkle

there was a scary movie with Robert Deniro and Dakota Fanning that was really good, don't remember the name
9:39 am

I don't like when they give you the drops so your pupils don't dilate and everything hurts when you go outside in the sun. I don't have sunglasses because I need the regular glasses and that is awful.

I've never had a bad breathed optician or anything, but it's just the intensity with which they focus on your eye. As if they've never seen anything quite so fascinating.

why would you want to numb your eye?

it depends on what method they use to check your eye pressures. an nct test just gives you that puff of air...but a tonopen or goldmann technique we actually touch your eye

SEX-starved Peter Andre demanded a divorce from riding fan Jordan in a jealous rage over his wife finding a new horsey set to hobnob with.

4:00 pm
mo

4:00 pm
ch1212

4:01 pm

4:01 pm
hurshy

i mean, feel more real to the relatives awaiting arrival. doubt any existential consequences for the child.

Trifioso

OH! I forgot to tell you all the big news! Primo and his gal thought he heard an "animal of some sort" creeping around in our shed the other day. I went in there today to get some food for the chickens, and there was a momma cat, curled up feeding her kittens! 4 or 5 of them I think.

8:22 pm
Trifioso

I would like to be able to befriend the momma, so I could get her neutered, at least
8:22 pm
GreyWoulf

While the mama wasn't able to be caught, the kits were taken to a shelter as soon as they were weaned
8:22 pm
sammysmom

we think that our sammy was a feral cat
8:22 pm
herinfernallady

8:22 pm

8:23 pm
Uneaixoise

jacs, when I finish vacuuming, it's a shower for me and total collapse! LOL
8:23 pm
Jacula

Both my cats were strays and both came to me without me looking for them.
8:23 pm
Jacula

Hi Wolfie.
8:23 pm
sammysmom

swhen we brought him home- he disappeared and we didn t see him for almost a month. he would use the litter box in the basement and would come out and eat and drink what we left him at night but wanted no contact .
8:24 pm
GreyWoulf

The worst part about the mama was that she was a gorgeous Russian Blue, and really sweet, just too wild for her own safety
8:24 pm

Jacula

LOL - jmc. If only you meant that.:-)
8:25 pm
Jacula

Trif - it's 2.25am here, so I'm not about to start cleaning the house.
8:25 pm
sammysmom

now he demands to be petted but only by my son- and on rare occasions , me- the rest of the world he wants NOT to touch him
8:25 pm
torgone

Heyas kids ..
8:26 pm
Jacula

Hi Torg.
8:26 pm
Trifioso

hello dear tor!
8:26 pm
jmcnrick

that is my favorite time to clean
8:26 pm
jmcnrick

hi torg
8:26 pm
GreyWoulf

hi red
hi torg
8:27 pm
Jacula

Both of my cats would only stand so much petting, even if they'd requested it, before you got a warning bite on the wrist or a swipe with a sheathed claw.
8:27 pm
herinfernallady

Saammy my white kitty loves to sit by you but llordee forbid if you touch her
8:27 pm
GreyWoulf

My main cat is Twitch -- we adopted her from the local animal shelter when she was just 6 weeks old --
8:27 pm
Trifioso

were a lot of the r words here yesterday too?
8:28 pm
Trifioso

herin, how are your kitties getting along these days? still world war over yours?
8:28 pm
GreyWoulf

She was supposed to be for Kirsten, but she was so cute and tiny when she came home that I carried her around for almost a full 24 hours
8:28 pm
herinfernallady

Madam Fatty was found behind a dumpster
8:28 pm
Jacula

jmc - If I started vacuuming at this time of the morning I think the next-door neighbours might complain, not to mention my son who's also in the house with me. (Other Half is away on a course from work.)
8:29 pm
jmcnrick

I rarely use a vacuum so I am good with that
8:29 pm
GreyWoulf

As a result, Twitch so totally bonded with me that she will even come when I call her name... or at least she used to... now that she is about 10 years old, she will not always show up
8:29 pm
Jacula

Do you have hard floors rather than carpet then, jmc?
8:29 pm
herinfernallady

Trifs I had to put Lucius in time out with me in the bathroom the other day he was being such a pest. It was like that constant poking of a bratty bro
8:30 pm
Jacula

Wolfie - she might be getting a little hard of hearing? Or maybe just contrary, like old ladies are. LOL
8:30 pm
Trifioso

lol herin! but in kiddie time outs, you don't have to go WITH the violator!
8:30 pm
redturtlehead

I think I probably should not even start this biggie???
8:30 pm
herinfernallady

He was by the bathroom door so i grabbed him and turfed him in there with me. I think he was thinking o hell no you are not bathing me
8:30 pm
Trifioso

red, it's actually really easy. Words you know, not too many babblets
8:31 pm
GreyWoulf

Nah - she is just getting smart, she knows that I will sit down eventually, and then she will immediately come over and climb into my lap :-)
8:31 pm
Jacula

Red - all but about 40 words go really easily. After that, your monkeys need to be on the ball.
8:31 pm
jmcnrick

I have rugs on hardwood floors.
8:31 pm
herinfernallady

HI Red
8:31 pm
herinfernallady

Cats on hard floors are funny
8:31 pm
Jacula

Wolfie - typical feline then!
8:32 pm
jmcnrick

most of my rugs are small and washable
8:32 pm
GreyWoulf

At times, it can be quite annoying -- sometimes when I come home from work, I just want to be left alone, but she won't listen
8:32 pm
Jacula

jmc - do you take the carpets outside and beat them? It's okay to admit to cruelty to carpets.rug abuse here. You're among friends.:-)
8:32 pm
herinfernallady

I have spent the last 2 nights literally unable to move in the morning. I had Pandora on the outside and Lucius on the inside. My legs were pegged into the bed by their weight
8:33 pm
jmcnrick

no I let them take a spin in the washer
8:33 pm
Trifioso

ha ha herin! I get that when the cat is on top of the covers, and I am under them, and they sleep right behind my knees, and thus I am trapped
8:33 pm
redturtlehead

but trif, i know the babblets etwee, etui, anoa..inti...
8:34 pm
jmcnrick

*taking notes from red*
8:34 pm
GreyWoulf

I know that feeling, herin -- when I go to sleep at night I usually have one cat behind my knees, another at my head and Twitch curled up right next to me like a teddy bear -- it makes rolling over at night tricky at times
8:34 pm
Jacula

Wolfie - my surviving cat is like that. If I sit on the sofa he's there in an instant climbig all over me - and he's heavy. It wouldn't be so bad if he'd just sit down, but he kneads and paws and takes my top into his mouth and sucks it. He must've been taken from hs mother too soon.
8:34 pm
herinfernallady

Yep. I couldn't even move tuesday morning. Baked on Wednesday night as I had a double blanket over my feet and they both pegged me
8:34 pm
jmcnrick

my cat, fugitive, sleeps on top of my side when I sleep on my side
