Awesome! I get to save $10 because now I'm skipping this movie!

I've made a Facebook group, started a protest, called my local councilman, staged a sit-in, started a boycott, and organized a million-fan march because we won't stand for the - wait, what was this about again?

Back from supper, getting ready to watch debates mark ;)

(I don’t know if bookmarks are working yet, but I did notice that this time Leaky remembered me even though I had exited the page – and even shut down the computer.)

I almost panicked when I saw the new poll. I then remembered that we sometimes hang out at the old poll.

Thank Goodness!!!

Good eeeeeeeevening!!!! Really busy these past few days . . .but thought I would just say hi!

MM LOL I really have no preference, but my slight inclination would be Princess Bride and Ferris Buehler. I will do my best to make it, but can’t make guarantees. BTW I sent you an email. ;)

Hope you all are doing well!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Dirty Dancing!

“Ba-bay, (ooh ooh wooh) my sweet Ba-bay (ooh ooh wooh)… You’re the one!” Awesome scene!

“I’ve had the time of my li-i-ife…

and I’ve never felt this way before…" Makes me want an old fashioned party dress and dancing shoes, and to go diving into his arms! I never get enough of that movie!

We had to have it at our wedding reception, and every time we watch it, DS and I swear we’ve GOT to start those lessons

I could watch a lot of Grease, too. We memorized all the lyrics when I was Jr. High or High School. It’s a classic too! I’ve never actually seen Blues Brothers, and I really should. It seems to be something of a cultural literacy requirement. I just saw something on a food show about doing a “Big Lebowski” theme party. Apparently it has a huge cult following, so now I’m really curious about it too.

Just bought Twilight! A friend recommended it, not knowing I’d heard of it here and have been dying to get it. That was the kick in the pants I needed to get over to the bookstore. So far, soooo good! Here’s hoping it gets me on the treadmill!

Thanks to this new Leaky format I have found the day I first posted. Yay!!!

I also found you Cool G and Mistic!!!

My first post was on August 13th at 8:18 PM and it was in the Deathly Hallows poll on page 64. I posted under my actual nickname. Wow! I then lurked for about 10 days and got the nerve to post again on August 23rd page 101 and I used “Minerva” for the FIRST time.

Cool G your first post was on August 27th at 3:22 PM. (Page 110, Deathly Hallows poll)

Mistic your first post was August 03. Paga 44 of the Deathly Hallows poll.

Ella you were the first one to welcome me! Thank you!

I felt like a little kid at Christmas finding my posts! I also saw budb; she seemed to post a lot and she had huge long posts. So did Cordelia.

Lemon you were posting huge posts back then. They were so good! I want to find where you decided to create the castle. I will keep reading. LOLOL! :)

Late check in mark… missed Sirius AGAIN, seems to be my new theme. Maybe I need a theme song for my new theme… LadyHawke thanks for passing my message onto him for me, and Sirius I hope we meet up soon, I miss you. It’s not the same catching up with you after you have LEFT for the day. :(

I have a love/hate relationship with Steel Magnolias, I love love love it but I can only watch it when I WANT to cry because I sob my head off no matter how many times I have seen it. That and P.S. I Love You. And Stepmom. waaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!

MissHagrid I have not tried the frozen soda bottles for the feet yet, I will have to give that a try, but I HAVE frozen soda bottles before and would caution anyone trying that method to beware! Drink some out first. They explode!

Have to run again, family calling… sigh I am ready for maybe a dinner with drinks night out, Rhiannon, that may have to be next on our list!

See you guys later! XOXOXOX

Oh, hey, MM! I didn’t know you were here! It has been a long time since we have been on at even close to the same time. I hope you are having a good night. :) I think the Castle got started in late August/early September, I can’t quite remember. I know I started posting in late May/early June on the poll about the first info we got for the theme park, and never left. :) I first became an official member of Leaky and posted on the regular boards in Oct., 2006, but I had been around for a lot longer than that, years even. But this group here is what clinched the whole thing!

Talk to you soon! {{{{{HUGS}}}}} Enjoy the rest of your time with your Aunts.

E.S. This formatting or the old, “new” formatting?

The older “new” format started with the old polls that actually have comments attached. The older, original format was when they used numbers to identify the polls and they do not have comments in the archive that is showing now.

If you meant something else, I can’t really remember. ;)

Bbt. ;)

I have been exploring back reading. Found my first official post! So funny. Saw lots of people I REALLY MISS! Vswift, Trish, NightOwl, Phillippa, Sydney, budb (later), SnapeGirl, the TWINS!!! 1&2 and lots more, I should have written them all down. So many people have abandoned us since DH came out. :( I hope they are all doing well, wherever they are! At least Trish still checks in once in awhile, and budb I see on the news comments sometimes. I saw Mollywobbles when she was still Mollywobbles-slug! I have forgotten that. AND…. do you know what else? I saw PotterBoy sorted into HUFFLEPUFF! Just how many Houses have you been in, young man? LOL

What struck me so much was the difference in the posts from then to now, how we were all still on the edges of our seats 24/7 waiting for DH to come out, there is palpable energy in those pages, this total vibration showing how much we just could not wait. I love all the theories, too, some of them were really close to how it actually turned out, it is sort of amazing. I was so far off in just about everything, LOL. I do sort of miss the anticipation, but I am so glad to be on this side knowing that it all ended well and Harry LIVED. Long live Harry Potter!!! WHOOOHOOOOO! :)

Now, back to current things… MM since my one little lonely vote for Footloose is all by itself there and not going to work any magic on the outcome, can I change that one to the list for Dirty Dancing, please? Thanks!

Ella did you even type the roast beef business, or did that magically appear in your post? And if you did type it… what’s it mean? LOL

Off to bed, see you all tomorrow!
