Re: All I have to do is dream...

I had a dream last night that I was in Chicago on business, and I randomly ran into Alea. We spent the rest of the day just hanging out. This is odd, since I have never been to Chicago, nor met Alea in person. I'm taking it as a sign that I've been staying away from this place for too long.

Ali, the last info graphic at that link blows my mind! There is a DISTINCT difference between "Mary" "Merry" and "Marry."

Re: TV in General - Rants, Reviews, Etc.

Because it means to be. Just the whole idea of Lindsay trying to impress Daniel and crew and then her little brother and his friends being so hopelessly adorkable...I like the characters, it's a good show, it's just painful at times.
I think "adorkable" is my new favorite word :)

Re: Currently Reading / Just Read (Books/stories/whatever)

I was worried that the series was straying too far from its proven formula, which is: small myth arc reveals while Harry solved a mystery, great character development, and things mostly being to normal by the end with some significant changes. But it did not! Basically. I just love sinking back int...

I'm thankful for Google.

I have a feeling the nerd-community reaction to this film is going to be vitriol on the level of Phantom Menace. I don't think it's going to be quite as bad as that.

I'm so glad they decided to include the songs in the movie, I got chills the first time I saw the dwarves singing! I know a lot of people just skip over the songs when they get to them, but they add so much to the atmosphere of the book.

It's not really a matter of whether they're "biased." They're just wrong. (When they're not trying to spin their opinions as facts, that is.)
That's a pretty strong blanket statement, do you have examples? Time where the fact-checkers themselves are blatantly wrong?
