Guess That Movie: XLI: Kind Hearts and Coronets

March 18th, 2003

[Guess That Movie image 41]Kymberlie, again, Starship Troopers amazoncom:B0000648WZ [Order from] correct, Richy again astonished!

Ok, now I’ll try and make a bit of sense and form sentences – but I don’t know why I bother with Kymberlie being a big stalking type thing and stalking down the correct answers to Guess That Movie images before the ink’s dry on my piece of notepaper.

I’m going out tomorrow night, so let’s just hope this black and white capture from a moving picture will mean you’ll be guessing round 41 for some time to come…. If it’s any help, I decided on this image by watching some thing about the Academy Awards ceremony and then Googling for the movie name to find an image (instead of taking it myself).

Have fun and good luck! “At the beep, please leave your name, email address and a short message with the name of the movie you are guessing at and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.” Beeep.

“Leicestershire, home for many centuries to a dreadful dynasty of vicious blogging entities – the bloggers of Leicester.
Legend has it that these sexy beings can be destroyed by an arrow through the heart or expose to true love,
This does not suffice however, for they may be brought back to life by means of a secret rite that can be performed once a century when the moon is in the eighth house of Gemini.
The latest reincarnation did not run according to plan.

In the heart of Leicestershire,
In the Leicester Hall of Fame-yea,
There’s not a blogger zanier than….

If you’re looking for some fun,
You can always count upon,
Come and find the one they call..
Richy C!”

(No, you get no extra points for recognising the childrens cartoon – I just want to relive my missing childhood 😀 )

Snippet: 63

No. I don’t know why I felt like posting the number 63 either, but I did and that’s that!

Guess That Movie: XL: Starship Troopers

[Guess That Movie 40]Well, after Super Beastmaster correctly recognised “Guess That Movie 39” as being from “Alice In Wonderland[Order from] amazoncom:B00004R99L (the image actually shows the carpenter from the “Walrus and the carpenter” section), Guess That Movie gets REALLY OLD now.

Yep, GTM’s “40 images old” today 🙂 Happy birthday GTM – (and a happy birthday to Kymberlie for tomorrow, she’s going to be 28: so pop over to her site and make a contribution to her Zimmer frame fund!).

Whilst you are all signing the birthday cards, you may as well make an attempt at the image which marks Guess That Movie 40. Again, it isn’t the one I wanted to post (as my machine’s now crashed 4 times whilst trying to capture the image), but it should help confuse you a little bit. Hopefully once my new Pentium 4 2.0Ghz machine arrives this week I’ll be able to get the images I want to get to get you guessing (at least my ‘g’ button still works – but I’ve never had problems with the G-spot before 😉 ).

“Guess that, Guess that, guess that, Guess that movie, Ho!
Guess That Movie is on the move,
Guess That Movie is loose,
Feel the magic, see the image,
Guess That Movie is loose,
Guess That, Guess That, Guess That, Guess That Movie!”

News: Well, I’ve seen a fishy wish tal-ak!

March 17th, 2003

[Flounder from the Little Mermaid]Despite all the bad news currently going around on the main news sites, I still found an entertaining little article over on the BBC News Site: “A fish heading for slaughter in a New York market shouted warnings about the end of the world before it was killed, two fish cutters have claimed.“.

Why could this fish talk? Well, “many members of the city’s Jewish community are now certain that God, troubled by the prospect of war in Iraq, has revealed Himself in fish form.” God’s spoken from a burning bush before – but a feesh? Especially a feesh that “was eventually killed by Mr Nivelo and sold”.

God, if it was you, try an appear as a non-food item next time. Maybe if you could start speaking from banknotes you’ll get a bit more attention – and, if you don’t, at least sales of Abba’s “Money Talks” single will go through the roof 😉

[Woman in aerobics class]Taken from Red Grand AM! (a link I discovered via Blogrolling’s I’m feeling lucky feature):

  1. If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it will always be yours. If it doesn’t come back, it was never yours to begin with. But, if it just sits in your living room, messes up your stuff, eats your food, uses your telephone, takes your money, and doesn’t appear to realise that you had set it free……..You either married it or gave birth to it.
  2. Reason to smile: Every 7 minutes of every day, someone in an aerobics class pulls a hamstring.
  3. They keep telling us to get in touch with our bodies. Mine isn’t all that communicative but I heard from it the other day after I said, “Body, how’d you like to go to the six o’clock class in vigorous toning?” Clear as a bell my body said, “Listen fatty… it and die”.
  4. My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely.
  5. The best way to forget all your troubles is to wear tight shoes.
  6. The nice part about living in a small town: When you don’t know what you’re doing, someone else always does.
  7. Just when I was getting used to yesterday, along came today.
  8. Amazing!! You hang something in your closet for a while and it shrinks two sizes!
  9. Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness.
  10. I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are eating too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That’s my idea of a perfect day.
