Thanks Fob! Five points to thee. So... what shall we talk about?
Who thinks that I'm nuts? Vote about it!
Vote: Do you think that Eris is crazy?
Current tally: Yes 9, No 2, Undecided 6
Thank you, Fob, for voting yes! I am glad that I am not alone in my opinion. :)
It is elementary. Before Lily voted no, there were only two yes's, one of which had been added by myself and you are the only other one who has commented within the time frame.
How do you know that it was me who voted no? Oh, and can you please give me the code to do this voting stuff?
Because Hogwarts students generally chat when they stop by, and you were the only person to comment after Fob. So I assumed it was you.
Gah! I keep trying to write down the code but it keeps putting it into poll format. Just go here: http://www.librarything.com/talktopic.php?topic=35356 and scroll down until you see the poll on the first post. It tells you how to do it right above the example poll that it has.
Okay, let me try...
Vote: Did I do this right?
Current tally: Yes 8, No 0
wow, thats really complicated. I voted yes by the way Eris, but in a good way.
Being crazy is always a good thing - especially when you have multiple personality disorder. Right, MisChild?
Sarah - I have no idea, I would have to guess, and I don't like guessing.
So, anyone watching football today? I'm keeping track of the Pats/Ravens game online. Pats are winning thus far.
Yeah I'm watching the game right now too. It's pretty good. I don't really care what team wins though.
Oh. My. God. They MISSED a 32 yard field goal and lost. The Ravens are one, unlucky team. -.-
I know. Isn't it hilarious? And I thought the Pats were going to lose!
mmhmm it will be interesting....
Vote: Do you think that the Patriots will win the Super Bowl this time?
Current tally: Yes 0, No 1, Undecided 3
Vote: Do you think that the Giants will win the Super Bowl?
Current tally: Yes 1, No 0, Undecided 4
I remember the last game very well. It was very embarrasing. Did you know the Giants fans chanted "18 to 1" just to dig it in a little more?
You know why they chanted 18 and 1? Because the Pats had a perfect season - 18 games won in a row. But the one stinking game that they lost was the Super Bowl. Ouch is right.
First of all, it's a rematch of '07. And my family was among those cheering 18 and 1. (Well the rest of my family. I didn't go.) And now our family cheer is:
GIANTS ON ONE!
18 AND 1...
The minute the game was over my sister logged on and bought plane tickets to Indie. They're leaving me home again though. Oh, and my brother tackled our Christmas tree.
That's not fair that their not taking you! WHy would they just leave you at home for a SECOND time! that's outrageous! I'm sorry Ginny. >:(
Your brother tackled your Christmas tree? How did that happen? Were there bulbs on it?
Well its just cause they're all paying for themselves or it's their Christmas/birthday gifts for the next three years. So now I'm the only Giants fan watching at the party at my church. It'll either be very fun or very depressing. Just remember, the last game the Pats lost was to the Giants. (And I was there!!!!)
Oh well we had taken off all the ornaments(except for my little fish but he's OK) but there were lights. The first time he caught it but then he was just so pumped he rammed right into it. It's fake but it was still impressive when it broke in half. Then we still had to run off steam so we sprinted down the street waking everyone up. *sigh* good times.
Completely random: am I the only one who's been on LT long enough to miss the button that said back to top or jump to first unread?
To make you feel a tad better, Sarah, I've known about jump to first unread ever since I came, but until you mentioned it, I didn't notice the back to top one. That'll make my life easier! :)
I've noticed them since forever but that's probably not helping your self esteem.
I always go on a computer!!! My parents refuse to let me get a phone/ iPod!!!!!!
Good for them. I don't have one either, and I am older than you. Trust me, my friends have phones, and it's not improving their lives.
Im really ok without one!
in my opinion it does nothing for your brain or anything!!
Yeah! All of us are phoneless! Glad I'm not the only person in the world who doesn't have a cell phone or Facebook.
Oh my gosh I hate it when there are those people at your school who are all like: "You don't have phone!? Omg you have no life!"
Do you know anyone like that?
Oh, yes. I have been insulted for not having Facebook or e-mail or a phone. It's very irritating. They say, "Come on, everyone has a phone." I'm finding out that not everyone does, however, and it's refreshing to know I'm not the only one.
That's what all my phony, see once a week "friends" say. Fortunately, my closest friend never tells me that. She's awesome like that. :)
And I have an mP3 player thanks to the formerly mentioned friend who gave it to me, but it only plays music - just how I like it.
I have an ipod shuffle, which only plays music. But I never really use it often.
I have a nano... it's orange and I added some pretty sick jeweled basketball embellishments too!
Omg I used to have an iPod shuffle... But it was too old and stopped being good...
I have an orange nano and i need a new one cause it only fits like half my music.
so this is where we talk about random stuff... fun! i want to get a dwarf hamster.. theyre so cute! :) im looking for one this weekend... im so happy!!!
Soooo, who wants to see a new Hunger Games trailer? :)
YOU HAVEN'T READ THE HUNGER GAMES???????? * TERRIFIED GASP* THE HORROR!!!!
*Points finger at silvsta* GET OUT! >:O
No. It's okay that you haven't read them. But I think you should consider reading The Hunger Games also. It's a very good series. :)
Pretty cool, Fob!
Here's another video to bring to the party. This is why I'm homeschooled, and yes, I answered every question correctly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2fHQ9eULzk&feature=g-trend&context=G211f...
I weep for our future.
Yeah, that's pretty sad. Your lucky your homeschooled. I could answer all the questions too, but the same thing that happened in the video happens to a lot of kids in my school...
Here's another funny video. I think it's gonna be a super bowl commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUFSHzT2xuY
I would've taken the Soup Nazi. :)
And here's another video. Nothing depressing, but it makes my "Sherlock" addicted self happy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHDCJmzajQc
I cannot see the video, Flan. Are you using your i-pod contraption?
THIS...SORRY!! this comes from a tv series and they are all very funny!!
Oh my gosh that was hilarious! Wow. :D
Sooooo, is anyone watching the superbowl? I sure am. Pats are gonna win it 41- 37
Haha! We'll see if your prediction will come true. I'm watching it online, as I don't have television. I'm rooting for the Pats, natch.
Yeah, I'm cheering for the Pats too. What do you think the score is gonna be?
I don't know. I refuse to call it, for fear of jinxing it. I'm super superstitious like that. :P
Hehe. Not me. This is the rematch between the Pats and the Giants that I have desired ever since they lost. I can't risk it!
Hello audience and welcome back to this presentation of Fob and Eris's super bowl show!
It's halftime. What do you think of the game so far? My prediction is going down the drain! I thought both teams would have a higher score by now. :P
Don't worry, Fob! There is still time for them to catch up and to hopefully fulfill your prediction.
My opinions? The Giants definitely dominated for the first 20 minutes, but the Pats swept in the last bit, especially with Brady's 98 drive, the longest in Super Bowl history! The Giants have an excellent defense, but the Patriots offensive is supreme and aggressive.
How are the Super Bowl commercials, Fob? I'm watching online via NBC Sports, so I'm not getting them. The only good commercials I've had are the "Act of Valor" trailers.
Most of them are acceptable. But none like like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R55e-uHQna0
Yep. Nothing beats the Darth Vader kid. :)
Did you get to see the half-time show? I'm thanking all the pop-hating saints that I didn't get to watch it! ;)
I am disappointed in you two. Your favorite teams loose so you go for the Patriots, who haven't beat the Giants since 2007. And in case you forgot Eris, they did have their rematch. Like 2 months ago in Foxburogh. I remember. I was there. The Giants kicked their butts. I thought you guys were above this.
*walks my blond walk out of the castle while wiping fake tears from my eyes*
I was cheering for the Pats too they should have caught that ball in the last touchdown
Ginny, my favorite teams have always been the Patriots and recently, the Broncos - I am from New England, so I root for the Pats out of loyalty to my birthplace. And what am I supposed to be above? I'm a little confused.
Yeah Ginny, I have always been a Pats fan. I even told everyone in an earlier post! (See notice board post #103 for proof)
Anyway Thank you for watching this presentation of Fob and Eris's Super Bowl Show!
It was a wonderful show, Fob, and I'm glad that we both could be here with our excellent analysis of the game! *shakes hands with Fob*
Tune in next time for our in depth exploration of... the RED SOX, BABY!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah I'm from New England too, Eris. But that obviously doesn't make much of a difference.
My father raised me in my sports loyalties. It's the way I am. No need to start an argument - after all, your team had a deserved win, they played a good game with a solid strategy, and Eli Manning is an awesome quarterback. I'm glad that you're happy with the Giants, but I'm still going to stay with the Pats and the Broncos. :)
Now it's time for the Red Sox to rise. GO RED SOX!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah yeah fine no arguing. But isn't it weird how you're saying "they played a good game" "Eli Manning is and awesome quarterback" when you're a Pats fan and I won't shut up about how stupid the Giants are and I hate Eli and I like them?????
Because I'm not wrapped up in football. I like it well enough, but it's best man wins in my mind. Giants won. Good for them. Now it's time for my true obsession to reveal itself - BASEBALL!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah, I'm not gonna follow baseball that much this year. Because Prince Fielder left the Brewers and Ryan Braun was on steroids. :(
I'm sorry about your team, Fob. :( I can understand why you don't want to watch baseball that much. Fortunately for my Sox, except for being frustratingly good at losing when they most need to win, are not doing anything stupid.
my friend was born in New York and lived there most of her life so far...
anyways she cheers for the Pats, Bruins, and Celtics but she HATES the Red Sox and LOVES the Yankees
That's natural, as she's a New Yorker. For my part, as a Red Sox fan with principles, I don't like the Yankees.
I'm from New England and I'm a Red Sox fan but I love the Giants
I'm bored. I can't seem to draw or write anything, and I feel completely useless.
Ugh! Why won't something interesting happen in my life?
I know how you feel Eris.
I practically live in a house full of boys, who are younger than me but think that I can't handle myself in sports, my mom, and my sister.Most of my comforts are my friends. I never really don't have that many things to do.
hello people... im silvsta only i deleted my account because of a stupid reason so know im the queen of random.... did i miss anything important or funny?
Nope! Nothing new except for debating about the identity of Madame Pomfrey, complaining about our boring lives, and pigging out on virtual chocolate, as today is Fat Tuesday and tomorrow is the start of Lent. Cool username, by the way! :D
rumor has it... rumor has it... practicing my audition song because * drum roll*
I AM MEETING AN AGENT ON SATURDAY!!! I JUST FOUND OUT TODAY!!! HE IS A TALANT AGENT LOOKING FOR KIDS FOR UPCOMING MOVIES/TV SHOWS!!! I AM ONE OF THE 200 KIDS IN THE U.S.A!!!! GAAAAAAA!!!!
IM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXITED!!!!
Wow! That sounds awesome, Flan! I hope it works out. ^_^
You're sure he's not a con, right? I don't want to be a wet blanket, I'm just paranoid when it comes to everything.
Awesome! I hope you do well, Flan. :) Break a leg!
What song for your audition will you be doing?
she sings with such soul!!! I love her too. Fortunately she is an alto. It is one of the few songs that I can sing within my range being an alto.
Alto singing is beautiful. I hope you do well, Flan!
And a peaceful and joyful Ash Wednesday to you, today. :)
Yep. I've had just a granola bar today and no breakfast. I'm starving. Can't wait for dinner! :D
sarah says hi and that she hasnt been on here much because shes had five weeks of mono.... :( shes getting better though... happy thoughts everyone!!!
I'm so sorry to hear that! I was wondering where she had gone. Tell her that I say and I hope she get's better soon. I hope you stay healthy as well, Queen.
Thanks eris... And silvsta I was wondering about the queen of random... That is kind of your thing
haha... thanx. i was wondering what i should call myself and queenofrandom works! ;)
Hi... I'm in my writing class. We got back our final grade. It's 20% of our semester average and I got a 94!!!!!! But there's 2 classes lefet and nothing to do.
Congrats, Ginny! That's a really good score. Is your semester almost done?
Ugh. I tried to resist, I honestly did. I tried, I tried, I tried. I tried to hate it, I tried to be indifferent, but I have to face the truth...
I admit it. I like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. *bangs head on keyboard*
Wwwhhhhhaattt? Hello? I'm sorry, I was looking for Eris? Badass christian part time goth? Call me when you see her will ya?
I know! This is terrible for my reputation. And I tried to hate this TV show - I really did. But I watched a few episodes, and I think it's pretty cute. I'm not obesessed over the show, but I like it a lot.
you watch the show? on what channel?
when? i thought they didn't even show that anymore.
you SEARCHED IT???? YOU PURPOSEFULLY TYPED " MY LITTLE PONY" INTO THE SEARCH engine!!??????? *faints*
Yes, I did. *snickers* And it is pretty cute, although some of the gushiness makes me want to puke on occasion. But all in all, the characters are fun, and it's something to do when I have trouble getting sleep at night.
Please say a small prayer tonight for father Pat McDarby Who's wake is tomorrow. He was a very godly, kind man. he is in heaven now, and it doesn't matter your religion or whatever, but it would mean a lot to my family. he is being buried on his namesake's day, St. Patricks day on Saturday.
I'm so sorry, Flan. I will definitely remember him in my prayers. I hope he had a long and fulfilling life as God's servant, and that Heaven will be a beautiful journey for him.
Thanks. he was the priest that married my parents and a lifelong mentor of my dad's
Thanks guys :)
I will be signing of for a few days. Going to state science fair! Wish me luck!
Hey, who wants to listen to the epicest song in the history of music? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0O8e2hMAL6c
YOU WERE THE ONE TO CUT ME,
SO I WILL BLEED FOREVER!
I love symphonic metal. :)
I'm glad you like it! :D Nightwish is one of the best metal bands, in my opinion - their old lead singer, Tarja, was incredible (she was the one singing "Ghost Love Score") and so is their new singer, Annette. A lot of Nightwish fans made a huge stink about Tarja leaving and Annette being the new singer (one of their concerts when Annette was singing, the fans started chanting "Tarja" and booing Annette; she left the stage crying), but somehow I can't imagine Tarja doing this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3JPpIc8634&feature=relmfu
Uh oh! That song got taken down. It's Storytime, by Nightwish.
Here, I hope this one opens:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4DorU-5Dg4 This song is really big in Europe, and it's one of the best from the album.
Wow, really? *does the celebratory chicken dance* I love it when people love Nightwish! I play them for my mom, and although she likes some of their songs, she doesn't dig the more metal ones.
What songs are you really liking right now, Sophie?
this is my favorite Beatles song
thanks alot Eris, now all my friends think i got a brain transplant or something of the sort
Really? Is Nightwish too far out for them or something? Here, play this song for them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8mlc9zv5Ho
Then they'll see how awesome this band is! :D
I don't really think that thats my sort of thing... but I do love this song recently:
And I totally don't do country, but I can totally feel the emotion in her voice!
Yeah, I remember that song. It's a pretty good song and Carrie is awesome. I like this song of hers better, though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca1EEYayu4M
they think i'm insane, because Nightwish is the kind of music that the most annoying person in my grade listens to, and i hate his guts and would be very happy if he changed schools.
Yeah, some of the Nightwish fans can be pretty annoying (especially when they start bickering about the Tarja/Anette thing), but the band is what I'm here for, not the fans, fortunately!
What does the guy at your school do that's annoying? Just curious - for some reason I like hearing about jerky people.
That is nasty. Sounds like he has some serious problems and he's taking it out on everyone else. I'll pray for him to leave you and your friends alone, and I pray that he solves his own problems without hurting others.
he doesn't try to bother me or my friends because he knows that if he tries to hurt one of us that i will hurt him, because i am stronger than him.
Last thing on my list is to pick up some flowers for my ailing aunt. Well, she isn't ailing. She's just injured, but she'll be all right and it won't interfere with our fun! ^_^
Vote: Are you ready for Mothers Day?
Current tally: Yes 4, No 2
i don't have anything yet and for my mom, i have to get her a mothers day present and a birthday present because her birthday is about 5 days after mothers day.
I'm glad my birthday doesn't fall around any holidays. There is Saint Patrick's Day later in the month, but that doesn't cause me or my March friends any trouble.
Happy Mother's day to all who might be mommy's in this group. I hope you are having a great relaxation filled day. I also hope you got something nice from your kids.
And I hope everyone got something nice for their mother's as well.
whew, its all good. Made a last-minute stop at my beloved Barnes and Noble. All good.
