I'm still slogging through the backlog of movie mini-reviews after the holidays. Here's the ones for October.

Meredith, in her excellent library blog, tagged all her readers to participate in this meme, so here goes . . .

FIVE THINGS YOU PROBABLY DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME

1. I can play "The Irish Washerwoman" on the recorder.

2. My least favorite color is yellow. I rarely use it in art and design projects, and I always try to avoid getting the yellow piece in Trivial Pursuit.

3. I know all the words to the theme from "Maverick".

4. My grandma was friends with Jessica Mitford.
This makes me four degrees of separation from Hitler.

5. The first rock album I ever bought was Squeeze's Singles --45's and Under. Luckily, I didn't really get into rock until high school, so I didn't buy anything embarrassing. I just digitized this for my iPod recently (not the actual same LP, I dropped that one in a tragic accident).


OK, now it's your turn, Kathy, Mali, Hellbound, and Dr. Somneblex.

NOW I HAVE TO GET SOME 20-SIDED DICE . . .

Well, I finally lost my Dungeons & Dragons virginity, my New Year's resolution being to fill in this one gap in my claim to be Queen of the Geeks. Here's my character, Jfroella-of-the-Glade, and her stats. Thanks to Dr. S for being a great Dungeon Master. That one episode of Freaks & Geeks has more meaning to me now. if anyone is interested in playing RPG's, let me know. I would enjoy being a cyborg or a ninja or a space cowgirl as well.



I've got the Dungeon Master's Guide.
I've got a 12-sided die.
I've got Kitty Pryde
And Nightcrawler too
Waiting there for me.
Yes I do, I do.
