Cj- Will be praying that things go well on Friday, that's exciting.

Deb- Oh man, The God Must Be Crazy is gold. I watched it again recently and still laughed hard. I love when old mate is trying to open the gate and his jeep keeps rolling away.

Pedro- I didn't know you had two piercings. Must have been in your new wave days.

Kim- that's a beautiful scene where Tevye is saying goodbye to his daughter at that train station in the middle of nowhere. Aw.

Laetitia- Never seen Joy Luck Club, I'll have to have a look

Al- I'm working on mine too. You'll have to put some photos up.

Belle- I guess most people nowdays look at their phone for the time. I miss watches though. Surely they were more practical than fishing about for yr phone all the time.

George- who knew getting a couple of earrings could imply such negative connotations!

Dawn- I'm loving that Fiddler on the Roof and Gods Must Be Crazy are getting such a good workout here! Our gneration knows where it's at.

Karen- I say embrace the Bernie love. Those crappy 80's comedies are great for what they are- simple enjoyment.

Ruth- I should watch Chariots again, I haven't seen it for yonks.

Deb said...

Yes!! The gate!!! That is my favourite scene.

KIM said...

Yes, Ben, it is a beautiful scene -- and particularly tear-jerking when you're on the other side of the world from your dad!! (Just think if it were one of the little vowels :( )
