Re: Friends Best Line Ever.....

I think the best line is from the episode where Ross is helping Rachel move into an apartment. He is trying to figure out how to get the couch up the stairs and is standing there yelling "pivot, pivot, PIVOT!!" to the people carrying the couch. It is not working at all, that is the best pa...

Re: Wicked

I picked up [i]Wicked[i] from my mom and tried to read it. I couldn't get my head around having a different Oz from the one in the original novels. I put it down for a long time and picked it up again after seeing some of the songs from the musical on youtube. That piqued my interest and I started i...

Re: Food you hate

I hate beets. I hate them if they are cooked, fresh, in a salad, on something else, I just don't like them. My husband loves them of course but I refuse to eat/cook them so he only gets to eat them at buffets that have them. I also dislike overcooked peppers. They just become mush and feel terrible ...

Re: Most twisted movie you've seen?

The Cell was pretty twisted to me. I covered my eyes for most of it.

Pi: I still do not know what this movie was about. I watched it all the way through and thought I understood the plot but I reached the end and felt disappointed.

Re: Curious Local Flavours

Rocky Mountain Oysters: take the testicles off of a bull, pound them flat, bread them and fry them up. People have yearly 'nut frys' where you get together, drink beer and eat bull nuts. I have only had them once. They taste like very lean beef. If you don't know what you are eating, you figure it i...

Re: Blood donation poll

I am on my way to donating my second gallon, one pint at a time. I have never had a reaction to donating but I brought my husband for his first donation and he felt very light headed and had to lie down for 20 minutes. He is healthy weight and everything but it turns out that if you don't eat/drink ...

Re: Dumbest things said in movies

"I guess we found his weakness.....(wait for it)...bullets." It is from a terrible movie called Mindhunters. I think 5 people in all of the world saw it. Just so terrible.

@_Jess, I have read Solitaire Mystery but didn't like it as much as Sophie's World. It seemed rushed compared with SW.

Re: Books you like that no one else has heard of

I picked up a book out of my college library and borrowed it, read it and then bought that copy because it is out of print. It is Visible Amazement by Gale Zoe Garnett. The story revolves around a 14 year old girl who goes to visit California after a major fight with her mom. She is then immersed in...
