Tanned, rested, and ready...

Ok, I'm back from the land south of the border, complete with no new movies watched, scads of emails to answer, lots of LAMB work to do, hundreds of new posts in my Google Reader account, and absolutely nothing new to report right now, save for the fact that my knowledge of movies did earn me $100 this weekend. I wagered against a friends' personal memory of seeing The Game; she maintained that it was released in 1993 or 1994, but I knew it was later (I thought '96 or '97). The correct answer is 1997. Then again, I lost back the $100 on a wager regarding the title of a Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers song. Easy come, easy go.

Regular programming resumes tomorrow.


5 people have chosen wisely: on "Tanned, rested, and ready..."

Ha, who did she think she was dealing with? I love playing the "when was it released" game, though I normally don't let as much ride as you did.

There was a precedent set on the last trip, when I took $100 from another friend who swore that the film starring Eric Stolz and featuring the infamous Tarantino/Top Gun monologue was called Kiss the Girls when it was in fact Sleep With Me.

Ah, the power of movie knowledge when there's no internet around...

She was set to go for $1000, but I wasn't quite that confident.

I would have won that bet.

It was released after I graduated from high school, not before. (I graduated in 1996).

Why don't people come to me with wagers like this?

Welcome back!

I have to bet that there was just a leeeeettle part of you that was fantasizing that you were on an episode of Survivor while you were on the beach.
