^ Really? (Asks the guy who has never seen it...)
Actually, I'd never heard of it until 2 years ago when there was a vote for Australia's favourite movie, and it came up as number one, so I watched it.
It is a thinking-person's psychological movie which leaves questions open at the end (but there is a solution!) If you see the film and still cant work it out, the solution can be found by going through this (very complicated) interactive website: http://www.donniedarkofilm.com/ when you reach the last level, a major clue to the solution of the movie is given.

Fascinating.  I guess I'll have to watch it and find out for myself.

2200 posts can I get a woot woot!

But what if you should only get one woot for 2200, and two for 4400, and three for 6600, and four for 8800, and five for 11000?  I think I'm 15 short (since I didn't get any along the way)...

woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot! woot!

Here are 30 woot! woot!'s.  If I see you go past 13,200 posts, I'll give you 12 more woot! woots!.   ;D

Same applies for ozgeroge - he also received 30 woot woots! and will receive 12 more when he exceeds 13,200 posts.

That's very generous of you.  I didn't think I was worthy of 30!

I'll just get government money to replace the contact points.  $1,000,000 each sounds reasonable, right (labor, parts, etc.)? ;)

Talk about elephants:  Someone came back from the recent Green Expo in my home city with a business card made up of about 70% elephant dung.  Now how's that for green. :P

A Greek Nursery Rhyme from my childhood:

Vaia! Vaia! Ton Vaion,
Tromai psari kai kolyon!
Kai tin ali Kyriaki,
Tromai to pahi arni!


Palms! Palms! On (the Sunday) of Palms,
We eat fish and salted fish!
And the following Sunday,
We eat the fatted lamb!


Mmmmmmm......fatted lamb......

Here goes mine:
Werba b’je, ne zab’je. / ne ja b'ju, verba b'je
Ne wsikajsia, ne wsirajsia,
Bud’ bihuszczy jak woda, / Rosti chutko jak Werba,
Bud’ zdorowy jak werba. / Bud' bohaty jak Zemla
Za tyżdeń Welikdeń!

Willow* is whipping, but it won't kill you / That's not me who's whipping - the willow is
Do not self-pee, do not self-poo
Be as fast as running water / Grow as fast as willow is
Be as healthy as willow is / Be as rich as soil is

One more week and I can be honest about how I feel about soy anything. 

Some things were not meant for human consumption. Soy -- excepting only soy sauce -- is one. Not even during Great Lent.




I'd disagree with you there. Fresh edamame i.e. green soy beans with corn make a very nice variation on succotash, or as we call it in our house "soccotashu"

and Miso paste is an excellent ingredient for cooking.  ;)

The cool thing about celebrating Easter a week late this year:  getting all the goods for my Pascha basket at clearance prices.

I love Paschal Liturgies because it's the only one opportunity to shout in a Church as loud as you can and you don't offend anyone :)

Can anyone here ever get any sleep between the Holy Saturday Liturgy and the midnight Pascha services?  I'm either too amped up in anticipation of the grand event or I'm already caught up on my sleep and can only sneak in a short nap. :P

Already caught up on sleep?? I wish....I'm like a few months behind....

Well, if I can't get any sleep before the midnight services, I certainly have no problem getting to sleep after I get home from the banquet at 5:00 in the morning! ;D
