Re: For the LLamas Among Us

I don't expect to get an invite, since I'm mostly a lurker, but if somebody out there has one, I'd be grateful. Not eternally grateful, mind you. That's reserved for gifts of alcohol or chocolate. But grateful nonetheless.

Here's something for the FJ poll.

The train reference got me there, too. I started with, "Who was a fan of toy trains? Walt Disney. Done." All the while KNOWING that Disney was a producer (at least when it comes to the credits).

Thank you very much for the game, again. I've just read Dark Tide , a book about the molasses flood, so that was an amusing instant get.

Re: Who's Special #2

I knew that 4 was referring to the Curies, but for some reason I just couldn't add "-ium" to their names. I don't know why, as that's the naming convention for new elements. Frain breeze, I guess.

It looks like we're missing a wordplay/vocabulary category.

I said andouiLLe intentionally. I thought it might be pronounced ondouey, but I don't think I've ever actually heard it spoken. I've just read it. I thought they'd be lenient if I pronounced the L (because I wasn't sure), and they were. I'll take it. They have long proven to be lenient on pronuncia...

Re: Wednesday, January 4, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm shocked that "Johnny Got His Gun" seems to be as obscure as it is. Like a previous poster, possibly it is the effect of having worked in a bookstore, but JGHG is one of those books that we always had on the shelf. I don't think we ever sold a copy, mind you, but that could be said for a lot of t...
