    Well, now I need mine changed, from 'Algai' to 'Manshima'. Please and Thank you.

    What happened? Did our strength in numbers plus superior firepower scare the buggers off?

    I'm stumped. We might need a hint...
  4. Would you ....... ?

    Whee! One day I'd like to go skydiving, although I never thought about doing it like that, hanging from the skid of a helicopter for a while.

    Yes, I listen to audiobooks in the car, and I'm also listen to Teach Yourself Spanish CDs because I want to be bilingual. As for dinner... Well, my wife eats when she gets hungry. I eat when I get home.

    You got it, Jivenrah Sedai. Specifically, The Fellowship of the Ring. Care to take a turn?

    Six minutes? I would take a paycut for a six-minute commute. This morning my drive to work was 45 minutes. Of course I had to wake up at 4:30 am and leave the house by 5:00, and the rest of my team won't be in for three hours, but at least my morning drive was under an hour. This afternoon, if I leave (as expected) around 5:30, my drive home will be an hour plus. With luck (and about ten bucks' worth of tolls) my day's commute will be under two hours. And to think, two weeks ago my commute consisted of six steps.

    The potatoes is a giveaway. That, and I reread the novel just a couple of weeks ago. The Martian. Two travelers join with five others. Then one more joins, then another. Then five leave. Then two more leave. Finally, there's a big celebration.
  9. Would you ....... ?

    Absolutely! Looks like a blast!

    Been a good weekend so far. I started a new job last week. Same company, just a different department bringing new challenges. Positives: I'm still employed. (My old department was obviously withering on the vine, such that it was only a matter of time before I got laid off.) I'm learning new things. Negatives: I had to give up my Work-From-Home status, so now I'm in my car two to three hours a day commuting. But all in all, I'm excited about the new job. On the other hand, I have to put off more daily routines until the weekend, but I can't complain, because I'm still employed.

    Did Romeo and Juliet actually marry? It's been so long since I've seen a production of it. BFG, care to throw one out?

    Whoah! Too many to count, I think. Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, maybe? Braveheart.

    You got it, Ryrin. Care to throw one up?

    A bunch of pencil-neck government types grill an pilot. Fed up, he taxis his plane out into the water and takes off.

    Hah. It's been a long while since I've seen it, so that I had forgotten most of the plot. But someone reviewed it in a podcast that I listened to just yesterday, so it's fresh in my mind. And the movie you're describing sounds like Predator.
