  1. Howdy everyone, and thanks. I see Absomphe is still alive. Or did someone pickle him and stuff him in a corner?
  2. I found out it is never a good idea to drink absinthe while you play as healer for a group while raiding a dungeon in World of Warcraft. That orc tank wasn't amused.
  3. "Life of Pi" is awesome, as is the book. Tried to get my school to add it to the curriculum a few years back. Fell on deaf ears. Watched "Hunger" and part of "Venture Brothers: Season One". I have to balance the drama with a dose of aftercare silliness.
  4. Not new, but it has been a while since Nymph reared her head. I suspect there have been a lot of new faces during my absence. For those who don't know me, I'll let you know I'm a silly bit of fluff. I live at the base of the Appalachian, yet I have all my teeth. I'm a bit of a hedonist, but a lot of my pleasure comes from a good film or book. And oh yes, I enjoy absinthe. Huzzah!
  5. Relaxing to Eartha Kitt. I love her purr in "I want to be Evil".
  6. I think I have stated before that a horror-comedy hybrid (when done well) is my favorite genre. I came across "I Sell the Dead" on my Netflix que. Grave robbing seemed to be a profitable business for those that could deliver the goods to the medical profession around the turn of the 19th century. The movie opens with the confession of a graverobber to a priest on the eve of the robber's public execution. He shares stories of his profession with the warning, "Never trust a corpse". Many of you have admitted your love of the horror genre. I think you should put this movie on your list.
  7. I still think it was a good choice for the added rock soundtrack of the 80's to use Bonnie Tyler's "Here She Comes" when Maria begins her puppet ministrations.
  8. I finally saw the Danish original series "The Kingdom". I loved it! Stephen King's American version, "Kingdom Hospital", simply does not compare to the original. A perfect cocktail of bizarre, dark humor, and horror. Unfortunately, season two ends in a cliffhanger which will never be resolved due to the deaths of three of the leading actors.
  9. Nope, the comma makes it an appositive phrase. Appositives rename or describe a noun or pronoun.
  10. My ears haven't stopped bleeding since the last time you were in my car.
  11. Hahahahaahaha! This is my home town. You failed to mention the PCBs which saturate our soil and water. Huge chemical plant (a half mile from the high school) spurted green, toxic gas in our town for over twenty years. Higher average of cancer and disease in this neck of the woods. Of course, the megabucks chemical plant denied it, but was proven guilty in a class-action lawsuit with thousands dispersed to the residents. Residents spent their dispursement on gun racks and 4-wheel drives. I taught at the high school near the chemical plant. Higher than average ratio of mental retardation among the youngsters. Also, every home is issued an emergency preparedness kit complete with gasmask. Chernobyl ain't got nothin' on us!
  12. I'm sure Birmingham, London is far more interesting than Birmingham, Alabama. Welcome!
  13. Welcome! Pull up a stool and share a drink with us.
  14. I'm very, very sorry it took me so long to check in. I should be spanked. Repeatedly. And often. I miss you, my lovelies! Thanks for the good wishes.
