Bored and All Alone

You know, it's really hard to increase your posts when you're the only one on the site. I suppose there are the standard excuses like it's Halloween, I'm out with the kids, I have to guard the candy against my dog, etc etc. But seriously, I actually had some free time, and I figured I could come on here and get over 700 posts, but it's proving a daunting task.

So, to ensure my sucess, I'm starting my own thread, to which I will reply, until I finally get rid of my ubergod status...which I'm assuming occurs at 700 posts. We shall see...

So. Does any one know whether the IKEA in Edmonton is bigger than the IKEA in Port Coquitlam?

Does Halloween Candy really give you nightmares?

Here's a silly little halloween quiz. The most fun is the cheesy thinking music.

Blah. I really am bored...

ACK!! I'm at 700 posts and still an Ubergod. Whenever shall I lose my title?

Keep posting 'till you get to 1000, that should do the trick. I am enjoying your thread, and would even participate except that I am in the middle of rewatcing a movie called, 'The 'Burbs' with Tom Hanks. I know I saw it when it came out, but it is totally unfamiliar to me. Will check in after it's over to see how you are faring with this Diamondathon.

At least I managed to entertain someone, because I sure wasn't entertaining myself.

My roommates were trying to convince me that I absolutely must watch a horror movie on Halloween. Sorry, but when you're sleeping alone, horror movies are not my style...

Well, if you have roomies then a scary movie would have been cool. What movie? I love scary movies but never get to see them because my husband doesn't like them. Neither does my daughter. And you can bet I am not going to watch one alone. What's your favourite one? Mine is still... well, whatever the name of it is, the one where Jack Nicholson says, "H-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-ere's JOHNNY!"

That's funny Haggis. We were just talking about that movie with Jack Nicholson, and that's the ONLY scene I remember from that movie.

As for what they wanted to watch..anything I think. I still haven't seen "The Ring" (and don't really want to), and they thought that would be a good one.

I personally don't like those scary movies unless I have a big strong man sitting next to me. Even "Signs" scared the crap out of me.

That just shows how out of touch I am, I thought 'The Ring' was one of the Tolkien sequels. 8-) Oops.

Oh, no!!!!!! That's one of the most annoying movies I've ever witnessed in my entire life... It starts off with a theme of a barking dog? Right? Please tell me it isn't so!

Not quite. At least, there were no hobbits in that version.

I like the Scream trilogy. Not to scary, with just the right amount of comic relief. Although, I couldn't watch them again...I'm getting super easily frightened in my old age.

Meanwhile, Diamond Sun, when you are complaining about being alone on the site, remember I have to overcome some serious timezones - meaning, when I'm on the forum in the morning, you're all sleeping. The number of times I've been alone ... *sigh* ... hey, shall we start a club or something?

Yes, but you should be used to it....being across the big pond. Me, it was a dramatic shock to come on here and have nobody else to talk to. Maybe I'll have to find out what time you're on so that I can stay up late (get up early) and keep you company.

Haha I'm touched! Such kindness!

It is my burden to bear. (Being kind that is, oh, and wonderfully friendly, and gorgeous of course...oh, and modest too..)

Oh, and Haggis, it's kinda strange to see your avatar of Bush with 'Holy Advisor' above it. Am I the only one who notices such things?

You know Diamond Sun, if you can find a way to exploit your kindness, friendliness and georgeousness, you can start some sort of new religion ... a bit New Age maybe ... you'll be a sort of new Messias ...

Andem, 'The 'Burbs' was pretty bad, yes. We picked up a bunch of oldies that have been rereleased on DVD. It was one of those movies that is bad but not bad enough to turn off, if you know what I mean. I don't recall the barking dog theme at the beginning, but then I was chowing down on supper while the movie got started, so maybe I just missed it.

DS, I might have to check out 'The Ring', now that I know it doesn't have any of those annoying little hobbit bastards running around in it.

All Lord of Rings lovers: I did like the books, thirty years ago. The movies suck, though.

Well it sure does fit what he thinks he is, eh?

You mean, he is a real Holy Advisor ... right? ... I mean, I heard it on this show, dunno, what was the name of the host again ... O'Reilly, yeah ...
