could make for avery interesting story.

Judy wrote: Kyer, you have to write this story!!! I love the ideas you
mentioned in your post.  The idea of Andrew with fangs is a riot. I can see
both Nat and Janette being attracted to him.

I do hereby free up the idea to anybody who has the inclination and time to
write it up.  Better yet, how about multiple write ups?  That little promo
could go in so many directions.

No, it's not an April Fools joke :) <glares at a whole bunch of DPs that

It's true, and it's a fairly bigger role than I imagined it to be. He
plays a fairly large role in the end, plays duel master in a duel. I
loved it when he was yelling: "Where's my bag?" bwahahaha... Just goes
to show you.. even if he's counting down from 10, it's still melts one
when they listen IMHO.

Anywayz, he's look good, there's this one scene where his character is
so smug I was about to laugh out of my seat. :)

I'm just surprised he wasn't, hasn't, and isn't being listed in the
official site or America reviews. Pshaw... Craig T. Nelson... I'd rather
see NB's name listed. <growl>

I don't know what to think because Roger Ebert and whoever his side-kick of
the week is just gave "Skulls"   "Two thumbs *way* down".   I get the feeling
Nigel's the best thing about the picture.

But then you have to remember.. Roger Ebert is just one person.. and what he
doesn't like, you might love. I haven't agreed with anything he and Siskel
have said in a LONG time.

    I am a native Chicagoin and have been reading Rober Ebert for years in
the paper he writes for here.  95% of the time the movies he gives two thumbs
down to are some of my favorites!!!!  I havn't heard much about The Skulls,
but in spite of Roger, I am going to give it a shot and make up my own mind.

Interesting item: the original title of the music is "Plaisir d'Amour"
("The Joy of Love"); the (English language) lyrics I learned are about a
man in love bemoaning his beloved's infidelity. Unfortunately, I don't know
the original French lyrics...

>How many of our beloved FK Characters "Rushed In" to a relationship?
>And how many more "Can't help" falling in Love?

        The joy of love may not have long to stay,
        But all through life runs the sorrow of love's dismay.

The next couplet reminds one of Lacroix, post-Fleur:

        I say farewell to the whims of my Sylvia's heart;
        She has already made another start.

>It seems to me like the two mortals on my short list fall in the can't help

Recalls the second verse:

        I heard her say that as long as the stream
        Should sweetly flow across the land alluring,
        Her love would be equally strong and true to me.
        Still flows the stream; her love is less enduring.

>I got a little deeper than I planned with that one.

So did all of the vamps... and in the end, Nat as well...

This has been happening periodically to me too.  Sometimes it will come up if
I reload, but often I just have to try later and hope I can get through....
It has been frustrating....

I have our Horror_Lit site on Xoom also.  They are having server
problems and the latest (after almost a week) is that it should be fully
operational within the next 24 hours...we'll see.

I can get to Xoom sites including my own, but Xoom is not bringing up
everything, so I have to go back then forward or hit refresh to bring
everything up. It's also slower than normal. It's been this way several
days, except later at night, which I noticed last weekend. Then it was
functioning normally, nice speed bringing up everything. Right now though
Xoom states that some member servives may be expericancing difficulities for
the homepages under their site status: http://xoom.com/sitestatus/

So hopefully it will get better soon.

Just *have* to tell you all, I just got back from Rome yesterday, after
flying there a week ago to configure three switches for a customer.  Went
from speaking a little Italian to speaking a *lot*.  (Fluency soon.)

Did I think about LaCroix when I finally got to do the sight-seeing thing
Friday afternoon and saw all those statues?  Absolutely!
