Subject: Ask Jeffrey...

Written By: nally on 03/28/05 at 10:55 pm

I see so many threads started by various members here, so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon as well. Does anybody have anything they'd like to ask me? I won't say no, how could I? :)

Hey Jeff!!

Tell me about yourself....what do you do for a living? What do you look like? Do you have a significant other? What do you do for fun?

That should keep you busy for awhile!!! LOL!

Hi Erin...

Some of the questions you asked me, I've answered on other threads...but I'll start...

I am a student at Cal State Northridge; I am currently taking math-related courses, and I am doing volunteer work that involves entering data into a MS Access database, and working with it.

What do I look like? Well, I am 5'10" and have dark brown hair. I know you haven't seen a picture of me yet, but as soon as my dad sends me the picture and I can read it, I'll post it up.

I am currently single. But I do have a lot of female friends.

No...but I did go on a whale watching field trip with my 3rd grade class to San Pedro once. (In fact, it was on March 29, 1989---16 years ago today!!) We only saw one whale, though. In addition, my mom and I had taken some Dramamine so that we wouldn't get seasick.

What does an earthquake feel like?

It feels kinda spooky (for lack of a better word). I've felt quite a few in my life, some small, some large. The strongest one I felt was the Northridge quake from 11 years ago, which was magnitude 6.7 (while other sources think it was 6.8, I don't know why). I still remember the 5.3 aftershock two months later which I did NOT feel! (People around me had felt it, but to this day I still don't understand how I could have not felt it. Usually I do feel 5.3 quakes.)

I have many different "favorite" restaurants. In my area, we have a place called Capistrano's, which is part of an Embassy Suites hotel that is right on the beach. For Mexican food, we have three locations of Yolanda's: one in Camarillo, one in Oxnard, and one in Ventura. (They make really good Mexican food. We also enjoy their Sunday brunch buffet.) For Italian, we like to go to a place in Camarillo called Ottavio's; for the past three years (including this year) we've had their Easter Sunday brunch buffet, which we always get full on. :)

No. My last name is Nelson. My username comes from the GSN series "Lingo." One time in January 2003, someone had spelled it and lost their turn because it's not a real word, and at the time I thought it was funny, so I decided to adopt it as a pseudonym to use on Amiright.com (and eventually here). (In fact, I mentioned this once before, especially on the thread asking how we came up with our usernames (which I started). Here's the URL for that thread: http://www.inthe00s.com/index.php/topic=491.0.html. More details can be found there.)

At first mine didn't seem to take off too well, so I bumped it a few times. I saw that other people were doing "ask" threads, so I figured I'd do one of my own. And in a sense it was out of boredom for me. I do sometimes get bored posting the same things in the boardgame threads, though.

No, I've never eaten a milkbone, but I do remember seeing the "I Love Lucy" episode where Little Ricky got a dog; in that episode, Lucy ate a milkbone. A new tenant, who was complaining about the barking, asked Lucy if there was a dog in the apartment, and Lucy denied it, so when the tenant noticed a box of dog biscuits, he asked Lucy about those, and she said, "Oh, they're mine. I eat them. You should try one, they're really good!" :D (By the way, the tenant eventually spotted the dog, and he said, "Either the dog goes, or I go!", to which Fred evicted the tenant.)

Other than that, no, I don't think I've ever tried to eat any non-human food.

The one that I found, I got it from an animation site. You find a picture, copy the URL of the pic (which you can access by right-clicking on the pic, then go to Properties; a dialog box will come up, and there will be a line displaying the picture's URL), and put it between the {img} tags. (Example: {img}blah_blah_blah.jpg{/img}. I purposely used the curly brackets instead of the square brackets for syntactical purposes.) Type all this in the signature line, which you can access by editing your profile.

Well, yes... when I was growing up, and we went on trips, sometimes we would visit historic landmarks, like the California missions. When I was little, the mission we lived closest to was the San Fernando Mission (and I took a field trip there with my 4th grade class in February 1990...and later built a model of one of the other missions). In June 1991 we took a train trip down to San Juan Capistrano, where we visited Mission SJC. I've been to at least half a dozen others.

And we travel up and down Highway 101 all the time... that road is designated as "El Camino Real."

All you have to do is type a capital O with a zero to get O0
To get ^-^, type a hyphen between two caret symbols (^)
And to make >:D, just type greater than, colon, capital D

I think they've always been usable; I just never knew about 'em till last summer.

Typically I take 3 or 4 classes per semester, although last semester I only took 2 to try and relax a bit. Didn't wanna take a full load.

Well...we haven't gone on many vacations in the past five years...and for the last three, we've had a little dog, so there hasn't been much vacation activity in our household lately. I like any vacation that involves the beach and/or the ocean. 8) My favorite one thus far was in 1992, when I went on an airplane for the first time. I was in 6th grade at the time. It was Memorial Day weekend; we flew from Burbank Airport to San Jose, and then rented a car and drove down to Monterey, where we spent the next three nights. From there we drove down Highway 1 to San Luis Obispo and stayed there for a night, and then we drove back home to the L.A. area the next day, which was Memorial Day.

No to both questions. I have never been to the state of Nevada, mostly because I've had no desire to. And I've been to the state of Coloradio only once, and that was to the airport in Denver to switch planes.

In fact, I've never gone skiing anywhere. That's because I'm more of a beach person than a mountain person.

No, actually I want her to come over to see my house, and have her meet my family (including the dog). It would probably be in the afternoon when she'd come over, so maybe I can serve her some lunch. Dinner/a movie/etc. might be for the next time. She's never been to my place before, but she has seen the pictures of the construction phases (which were taken 5 1/2, almost 6, years ago)...and we've made a lot of improvements to it since we've moved in. She's really interested in coming to see my home; we just need to agree on a day and time.

How close are The Rockies?

Rockies basically run through Colorado (and the states to the immediate north). California is quite far from there. The closest major mountain range is the Sierra Nevadas, which run near the California/Nevada border.

There are other smaller mountain ranges, which are the result of numerous earthquakes millions of years ago. There are the Santa Susana mountains, the Santa Monica mountains, and of course the San Gabriel mountains, which can be seen from the Los Angeles area.

There was something like that at the Museum of Science & Industry in Los Angeles last time we went there, in 1994. As I recall, it was an exhibit specifically about earthquakes, which I found rather interesting, given that I had experienced a quake earlier that year.

Though most of her albums are out of print, some could still be found in used CD stores and online.

I would reccomend "MYOB" (2001) and "Think With Your Heart" (1995).

They range from pop to adult contemporary ballads.
And no, she's not a bubblegum pop singer anymore... which she's old enough to be a parent of a teenager herself.


If you watched "Step by Step" in the 1990's, you might remember the episode where Deborah played fictional pop singer Christi Rose who hired Cody as her roadie/bodygaurd. During the performance scene, she sings "Don'tcha Want Me Now" from "Think With Your Heart" (Deb's 1995 album, though long out of print).

Recently, she did a duet with Jordan Knight (Yes, from New Kids On The Block) on his song "Say Goodbye", which is becoming a hit in A/C radio.

I'm well aware of that...but I liked her best during the "Laundry Service" era. In early 2002, I decided to get that CD because I loved hearing that "Whenever Wherever" song of hers, and its follow-up single, "Underneath Your Clothes." Before I decided to purchase the album, however, I had gone to her official website and listened to the 30-second snippets of each of the tracks. They all seemed like good songs (even the ones in Spanish), so in May 2002 I bought the CD at Best Buy with one of my gift cards. :)

I can't find the city of Milbank on a map, but I did find a site that says it's "near" Indianapolis so I'd venture that it's around 700 miles to Philadelphia.  When I traveled, it was on Interstate 80, which is the main East-West thoroughfare in the U.S.  He may have used smaller state roads or something, which probably slowed him down a lot.

It's under "Kiss The Girl" on the first page.

The link is a tv performance from "Good Morning America"  on You Tube, though not sure if it's still there since they have yanked many tv clips for many reasons.

yeah, they often yank them off when they get "old"... many times a site doesn't like to keep clips there for so long.

And another question, and don't take this personally.. but I am curious about it. I notice on many posts, that if people get off topic, you try to steer them back on topic. Would you describe yourself as 'routine oriented' ?  Have you ever been told you have Obsessive Compulsive traits?  (Please don't be offended by this question.

Yeah, at least 95% of these ladies I go to school with. :) And to answer your second question, I have known this one particular young lady since last September; she's very nice and friendly (as well as beautiful); most times I see her, she's always glad to talk to me. I met her on the campus shuttle bus and became friends with her on the day we met. In fact, I think I've talked about her on this thread...but several pages ago. She studies physical therapy.

Well...I'd like for it to be neat, but I don't always have the time to organize things. There just aren't enough hours in a day. In the past I've taken a day (or two) to re-organize my stuff...and I've found that I usually need more than 24 hours to reorganize it. And yes, I do like to put things in containers, but not all of 'em are plastic. In fact, I usually use cardboard boxes to pack up stuff that I don't intend to sift through on a regular basis. When I move, I can figure out where I wanna put everything. Right now it's stored in a corner of the garage.

Well it looks like you made some progress there, Erin. O0 Anytime I organize my room I find myself having to throw away lotsa stuff, including old papers. I still have most of my old toys from childhood, but those got packed in boxes many many years ago....probably around the time that our current President's dad was President.

And for the record, I am a neat freak too...but I'm not obsessed with cleanliness, like Danny Tanner on Full House. ;D

Here's "He Said, She Said", which is produced by JR Rotem, who worked with Rhianna.

...no comment, though I prefer her as an actress

Ashley Tisdale to Release Debut Album, "Headstrong," February 6, 2007 on Warner Bros. Records

"High School Musical" Star Teams Up With Hit-Makers J.R. Rotem, The Matrix, and Kara DioGuardi to Deliver Upbeat Urban-Flavored Pop; First Single -- "He Said, She Said" -- Hits Top 40 Radio in January

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 04, 2006 -- Singer-actress Ashley Tisdale, star of the top-rated TV movie, "High School Musical," will release her debut album, "Headstrong," on Warner Bros. Records February 6, 2007. The 14-track CD showcases this multi-talented artist's independent streak, and will entertain her legions of loyal fans with its upbeat pop/rhythmic groove sound.

Tisdale turned to a host of top-notch songwriters and producers who have given her natural pop exuberance an urban edge, including Jonathan "J.R." Rotem (Britney Spears, Rihanna) and Evan "Kidd" Bogart (Rihanna), who co-wrote "Headstrong's" first single, the sassy "He Said, She Said." Noted hit-maker trio, The Matrix (Britney Spears, Hilary Duff) co-wrote and produced several songs, including the title track, Tisdale's 'independence anthem' "Headstrong," and the indelible, rhythmic "So Much For You." Other collaborators include Guy Roche and Shelly Peiken (Christina Aguilera) on the buoyant "Positivity" and the orchestrated ballad "Unlove You"; up-and-coming Swedish production team Twin on the playful "Going Crazy" and the dancefloor-friendly "Be Good To Me," which was co-written by Kara DioGuardi (Gwen Stefani, Ashlee Simpson); legendary songwriter Diane Warren on the mid-tempo "Love Me For Me"; and Tisdale's "Kiss the Girl" producer Mark Hammond, who produced the tender love song "We'll Be Together," written by Peiken.

With co-writer credits on three tracks, Tisdale was determined to record songs that touched her personally and that contained lyrics she could identify with. As a result, "Headstrong" is an appealing portrait of a talented young artist blazing her own trail and letting her devoted, pre-teen and teenaged fans discover her versatility and multi-faceted personality.

Tisdale is currently on the road with her "High School Musical" co-stars for a nationwide 42-city concert tour in which she performs songs from the movie's triple-platinum-selling soundtrack as well as three tracks from "Headstrong" each night.

Recently named one of Teen People's "25 Hottest Stars Under 25," Tisdale is also known for her role as Maddie, a hotel candy counter clerk and baby sitter of devious twin boys on the Disney Channel series "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody." She has earned enormous popularity from "High School Musical," which premiered in January 2006 and was the highest-rated telecast in Disney Channel history. Tisdale scored a coup when she became the first female artist to ever debut with two songs simultaneously on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

Try rainier. It was on that day when we had severe thunderstorms (and a flash flood warning before 7 AM). More notably, the La Conchita area (just 15-20 miles northwest of where I live) suffered a mudslide...at this very hour! :o

Yeah...well, mudslides are pretty severe, especially if they happen in a tiny community that's situated right near the base of the hills. Not very good planning. :o

Yes it is hard to believe. I find it even harder to believe that 1995 was already 12 years ago, and I remember that year as if it was just a short time ago. I mean, 12 years before that was 1983, and that's a year that I have absolutely no memories of!

Yeah, it's not very wise to build any infrastructure near a mudslide area, but, I suppose being human, we just try to meld in with the land and not always think what is safest for us. I have been near rock slides in my area and it's rather scary!

Yes, 1995 was twelve years ago and I also remember it perfectly. I was 12 going on 13 at this time, but it all remains vivid. I've always been one to remember small details, so it's a cinch to remember something that happened twelve years ago. I don't remember anything in 1983 as I was about 1 years old. But, heck, I was alive - making first impressions.

Wow, yeah, so you were already in HS at the time. I was just finishing up 7th grade and going into 8th grade the following August. I wasn't too popular with the boys during this time. I was just focusing on my schoolwork, mainly.

In 1993, when I was in the second half of 7th grade, I didn't have the hots for too many gals...except maybe a few. There was this one who I thought was beautiful, but when I got to really know her, in the 8th grade, she turned out to be a real b!tch. There were some much nicer, more attractive girls in my junior high...and they were the kinds of people who I would sometimes talk to during my second half of 8th grade (February-June 1994). And some boys. By the way, I was in an honors math class in 8th grade, and everyone in that class was nice when they said something to me.

Yeah, a lot of kids in Jr. High/High School can turn out to be really meanspirited. I pretty much had to make new friends all over again in Jr. High because they put us on a track system where it seperated me from my friends who I use to hang out with in Elementary school. Fortunately, I did have PE with one of my Elem. school friends and we also had lunch at the same time, and her track months were only off by a month compared to the track I was on, so we got to see more of one another and hang out. Otherwise, when she was off track, then I hung out with girls I knew in my classes. Luckily, one girl that I met on the first day of school had the exact same period schedule as myself, so we became close as it's rare to have ALL the same classes together! There were a few boys I had crushes on, but I didn't feel very passionate about them. They were more like brothers than romantic interests.

That's pretty cool you were in an honors class in 8th Grade Math. I was lucky to pass to get to Algebra 1 for my first year of HS.  ;D

I gotta go with Gene Rayburn; he was quite a funny guy.

Ross Shaffer, I don't know too much about him, but I did watch his short-lived rendition of the MG in the early 90's.

You had them on Geocities before.  Free Geocities websites offer a limited bandwidth, which means when somewhat large sized images are viewed many times, it soaks up the bandwidth, and the pictures show up as red Xs for a temporary time (usually about 30 minutes to an hour)

Hi there! Glad to see you here. Chloe is a long haired chihuahua, but she's mixed with other breeds; we don't know exactly what, but we think she may have some Papillon (pap-ee-YONE) in her. And we don't know exactly how old she is, either. We got her from a Chihuahua Rescue organization in early 2003, and the people told us she was about 2 1/2 or 3 at the time, so she may be 6 1/2 or 7 now.

To answer your final question, she likes to rest most of the time. She also likes to be snuggled and petted. :)

Why not?  The human body is a beautiful thing.  It's not like this was smutty or anything.  All you saw really was her naked behind. 

Yes it is. A whole lot of nudity, however, doesn't appeal to me.



As a side note, do you watch R-rated films?  You dislike nudity and apparently when people use foul language, so I'm just wondering whether or not you'd see one if you thought it looked good.

I only watch R-rated films if there's humour in them, and/or if they look interesting to me. :)

On December 8, 1994, I watched an R-rated film for the first time, namely Speed. (It was on video, btw...and I was 14 at the time.) While I wasn't totally turned on by it at first, I sorta became involved in the plot...and wondered how Keanu Reeves was gonna get those people off the bus safely. Eventually I found out how.

Some of my favourite R-rated films include The Birdcage and a few Jackie Chan films.

No. In most cases, I'd say (or at least think to myself), "Get that outta my face!" I wouldn't be able to look at it for even three seconds. In most cases I'm just not comfortable looking at people nude, that's all.

Thanks

She's now working on a new album with producer Neal Pogue (Outkast, Pink) and her song "Famous", which is similar to Pink's "Stupid Girls" is on her MySpace.

She deserves a comeback hit since it's been 20 years since she came "Out of the Blue" and she's actually a talented pop singer/songwriter. Except that radio doesn't give her a chance.

If she's still a 17 year old pop princess, I would be into Ninja Turtles... heck even they have a comeback since there's a recent cartoon series and an upcoming movie... :P

He's not

I doubt it'll be successful and I don't think the franchise is as popular like it was over 15 years ago.

Like New Kids On The Block changing it's name to the acronym "NKOTB" in the mid 1990's, it's titled "TMNT". Instead of animatronics, it's in CGI.


Sarah Michelle Gellar does the voice of April O'Neal and Laurence Fishburne is the narrator.

Yes, they don't seem to air very much classic animation...it's all about the "newer" stuff nowadays. Even Toon Disney has started to "jump the shark" lately. And by the way, I watch "The Suite Life" a lot, too; it seems like an interesting show (although there's maybe 1 or 2 episodes thus far that I for sure don't really like), and I have seen a promo for the upcoming movie (which will air in two weeks on Disney Channel).

There's a classic episode of Step by Step being aired on April 19th on ABC Family featuring Deborah (Gibson) Gian at 2:00 PM.

It's about a fictional pop singer hiring Cody to be her roadie.




I think I may have seen that ep before.



Ashley Tisdale's music video "Be Good To Me" will debut on TRL on that same day...

More likely the concert performance video that aired on Disney with her wearing short shorts...

I won't be home to watch it, since the 19th is a Thursday. If I really wanted to watch it, I suppose I could tape it.

Could be any number of channels. See, some stations independently air reruns of tv programs. There isn't a broadcast channel that airs reruns of SBTB in Los Angeles. However, during the 90's, KTLA 5 used to. They aired the finale for the last time on September 18, 1999.

And even though the graduation episode was filmed prior to the Tori run, it was saved for airing until after the Tori run.

Yes, it is a chain...as they have restaurants all over the U.S.. To find one near you, visit their website, chilis.com

And yes, I did enjoy the experience, mostly because I was there with people in my age range. I have been eating there since I was about 12; they have great food. It is a "casual dining" restaurant. They serve mostly grill-based food, including "babyback ribs" (which I personally don't care for), sandwiches, burgers, even a few Mexican dishes like fajitas and chicken tacos. They also have great salads and soups.

However, since they're a steakhouse, and I'm not a big steak eater, I may not go there very much, if at all.


Well...I just happened to pass by this place today...and it turns out, said restaurant is no longer a Charlie Browns. It is a restaurant called Todai, and from their outside decor and name, they probably serve oriental food.

That Yahoo database needs to be updated.

I clicked on the website, but when I clicked on "Locations," all of the regions listed were on the East Coast. So that means there aren't any out my way.

Yeah, those things need to be updated as soon as the ownership of a building or business changes. Database maintenance is very important, as I am learning in a class that I am taking this semester. :)

The Zaca fire started on 4th of July. They think fire works were the cause (wonder how they drew that conclusion  ::) ) it was bad they didn't get it put out until Sept. 

The Sedgewick fire- I have no idea how it started. I don't know if it was an off shoot of the Zaca fire or just a new fire.  Both Zaca and Sedgewick are in Santa Ynez so the areas aren't too far apart.

Yeah I saw a report on the LA news they said one of the fires, I don't remember which one, they knew it started by arson. The fire cheif was pretty pissed because that arson took resources away from the other fires. 


Why would they do that sort of thing?  ???

People are idiots. They like to see stuff burn or they think they'll be on the news because of the attention the other fires have been getting. I guess they don't have to personally be on the air just seeing something they are responsible for get air time is enough.  They don't think about the consquences or maybe they just don't care about them  :-\\

My friend is a fire fighter in LA.  She's frustrated because all they ever talk about is not having the resources to fight the fires. Apparently tho. they have enough personnel but not enough engines to get the personnel onsite... plus some have to stay behind and man the stations where the fires aren't burning because of medical and everyday fire calls.

It's crazy....

Glad you asked. I have absolutely no idea what it is...it's probably a nonsense, made-up word. One time in January of 2003, when I was watching "Lingo" on GSN, a contestant spelled it and lost their turn, because non-words are not allowed when figuring out a mystery word on the game. I thought it was kind of funny when they spelt it, so when I became acquainted with the older version of the messageboard, in early '03, I decided to adopt it as my alias; I also began using it on Amiright at that time.

Glad to meet a fellow southern Californian. Yes, I know where West Hills is...it's at the west end of the San Fernando Valley...to the immediate west of Canoga Park. And PCH is fun to travel on...it can be very scenic, depending upon the time of year.

I have never been to your area of the U.S., mostly because I ain't much of a travelin' man. But I would like to travel to the east coast someday. :)

You write parodies? If so, have you submitted any of them to Amiright? I'd like to read some of them. I myself have written some parodies, too, but haven't submitted any of them, mostly because some of my parodies deal with political humor, while others are "serious"...and I'd probably get bombarded with "1" votes (I hate that!).

even tho I know its not good I know I will watch it eventually. I am drawn to bad films because I m always in awe of studios having the audacity to make them... I have seen more bad movies, on purpose, than anyone else... the ones I really like are the ones that everyone knows is bad so you can tell the actors are just there to have a good time.  That's kind of what made Lake Placid a fun movie... that and all the sarcasm.

For that matter I don't know why the new versions of certain tv shows/games lack the word "new." Although when TPIR went on the air with Bob Barker in 1972, it was originally deemed "The New Price Is Right" (as opposed to the old one, which was hosted by Bill Cullen and had a different format).



could be remakes of the original.

that's what I'm thinking too.

I did download a guide / bunch of hints a few years back .... probably somewhere on my hard drive ... but by this stage, my reflexes /reactions aren't what they were 20-30 years back ... so way too late for me to be that bothered.

Anyhow, it seems the top players have a bunch of 'maps' in their heads, and know which ghosts are aggressive, how to move per ghost .... and also have a series of pre-programmed ways they're gonna react / move for each screen ! Now that is taking it WAY seriously !

Yes, when you frequently play any video game, such as Ms Pac Man, where each stage is designed a certain way, there's a certain "routine" you follow. I became good at Ms. Pac Man during 1999-2000, when I had regular access to a certain Ms. Pac-Man machine; there was one in the campus center at the community college I attended back then. Also, I had met up with a buddy of mine from junior high, who taught me some good strategies at the game. After February 18, 2001, I didn't play it again for 3 1/2 years. During 2004-05, I was able to replenish my skills, and obtain higher scores than I did five years earlier. (On April 8, 2000, I set a personal best with 66,540 points, getting to stage 7; five years later, I was able to get to stage 15 and get 120,000+ points.)

I think of stages as each time through the maze....the 1st one utilizes the first maze (and the fruit is cherries); the 2nd stage utilizes the first maze (and the fruit is strawberry); then you have Act One: They Meet. This is followed by three stages of the second maze (peach, pretzel, and apple, in that order). Then you have Act Two: The Chase.

Also, in the first maze (Stages 1-2), the walls are pink, and the dots are white.
In the second maze (Stages 3-5), the walls are blue, and the dots are yellow.
Then in the third maze (Stages 6-8), the walls are kinda orange-red, and the dots are red.
There's also a fourth maze (used from stages 9-12), which is preceded by Act Three: Junior.

In the second maze (Stages 3-5), the walls are blue, and the dots are yellow.
Then in the third maze (Stages 6-8), the walls are kinda orange-red, and the dots are red.
There's also a fourth maze (used from stages 9-12), which is preceded by Act Three: Junior.

No...but I have played the game with other people. By the way, it's a sequential game; that means, the two players cannot play simultaneously.

With regards to hairstyles, I don't have an actual preference, per se...just about anything is fine with me as long as it doesn't look anything like Cousin Itt (i.e., hair in front of face), because then you can't see where you're going very well.

I had never seen that game before, and when I tried playing it, it moved too quickly for me, and the instructions were hard to follow as well. So I've been storing it away and it's been collecting a lot of dust. I wanna see about giving it away, but I don't know if Goodwill or Salvation Army takes video games.

It's from the Disney Channel sitcom "Hannah Montana." I have no idea what it really means, but I suspect it's a southern expression, given that Billy Ray Cyrus and Miley are from that area (Kentucky and Tennessee, respectively).

No, but my parents are going away this weekend, up to Reno. A second-cousin of mine is getting married, and my parents want to be at the wedding, especially since he is their godson. I will be home taking care of the dog and studying. They will be leaving on Thursday night and returning home late Sunday afternoon.

Since we got our Chloe dog five years ago, we haven't been able to go together on vacations, since one of us has to be home to take care of the dog. We are her immediate family, and the only ones who Chloe trusts. And if we could take her a long distance,we would need to get a carrier, or some sort of crate suitable for transporting live animals. (Kinda like the one that the people from Chihuahua Rescue brought Chloe to our house in, when she came to live with us.)

No, but my parents are going away this weekend, up to Reno. A second-cousin of mine is getting married, and my parents want to be at the wedding, especially since he is their godson. I will be home taking care of the dog and studying. They will be leaving on Thursday night and returning home late Sunday afternoon.

Since we got our Chloe dog five years ago, we haven't been able to go together on vacations, since one of us has to be home to take care of the dog. We are her immediate family, and the only ones who Chloe trusts. And if we could take her a long distance,we would need to get a carrier, or some sort of crate suitable for transporting live animals. (Kinda like the one that the people from Chihuahua Rescue brought Chloe to our house in, when she came to live with us.)



Oh...I see. I hope your parents have a nice trip. :)  BTW, Jeff...how far are you from the beach?

No. We only walk our dog around the neighborhood. She probably wouldn't like the beach anyways, cuz then she'd get sand in her fur. And it would be pretty hard to clean her in that condition.

I don't think the family that owned her before ever did that, either. All I know is that they didn't take real good care of her, and they wanted to make her a mommy. She had two litters, and then was given up at the end of 2002. And that's when we found her picture on the Internet! Also, she has been spayed, so she can't have any more puppies.

I have been listening to that station for ages now... its call letters are still KBIG, but it's been known as "My FM" since last September. I know Casey's show is still broadcasting on that station. :) I just listened to a snippet of it a few weeks ago.

Back in 1996, I was an avid listener of his American Top 20 countdown show; I listened to it just about every week; I thought it was interesting to see how the songs changed from position to position.... in March 1997, the station dropped the show for some reason. They later resumed it, though.

Yeah, sometimes I do. Because it doesn't need to be so overbearingly large. Blowing it up to the normal size (10pt) is fine, though. Or better yet, just removing the (size)(/size) tags so that the text displays normally when quoted is even better.

I saw a promo that stated that reruns will air on September 1st.


Also "Phineas & Ferb", though that's too soon, IMHO.

The only Disney Cartoons I've noticed are from the past decade and nothing with a certain mouse.

I'll admit that I watched the original "Power Rangers" as a kid, but that show is extremely laughable and the recent incarnation (I actually watched a several  episodes out of curiosity  :-X :-[ ) has the worst special effects and use of CGI I've ever seen that would make Sci Fi Channel movies look like a masterpiece. How about having an episode with a Journey song playing in the background and the show ends in the middle of the climax for no reason whatsoever...

Yes, it is too soon, lol. That show is less than a year old now. (Although many newer episodes have been produced lately.) It should belong exclusively on Disney Channel until at least 2010, depending on how long the show runs and new episodes get made.

On Toon Disney? yeah...that sucks. They should keep him; he's a classic icon! Do they not air 'House Of Mouse' anymore? ???

I never got into the show, even when it first premiered 15 years ago. Mostly because I was entering my teens at that time, and my interest in "kid-oriented" programs was starting to wane anyways. Altho in my later teens I did get into watching "Animaniacs"...

Accordinf to Toon Zone, Toon Disney nolonger airs "House Of Mouse", "Goof Troop", and "Tail Spin"/

Also Jetix dominates most of the channel.

Boomerang is still a good channel, which "Dexter's Laboratory" still holds up and features a variety of Hanna Barbara cartoons from the 1960's to a few handful from the early 2000's ("Duck Dodgers"). Strangely, classic Looney Tunes aren't shown.

If you have satellite, has there ever been a "channel jump", which is where it chages to another channel for no apparent reason? Hard to explain...

I occasionally watch it...the last thing I watched on there was Tom & Jerry. And I hate that they dropped the classic Looney Tunes.

I don't have satellite TV, only digital cable, but i've noticed that just about all the lineups have quantum jumps in their channel numbers; I don't know why that is. Sometimes they only skip one number too; for example, there might be a channel number 74 and a channel number 76, but no 75. That doesn't make sense to me.

According to the listings, "House Of Mouse" will be shown in Sunday on Toon Disney. Though not sure if it's just for filler or they're bringing the reruns back.


Also, they've cut back on Power Rangers by only showing the current incarnation (rumored to be the last season, though most people probably don't know that it's still on the air and most kids today are more into SpongeBob and/or anime).

Well, anytime something like this happens locally, and lives are lost (no matter how old they are, or how many people are involved), it makes me feel sad. :\'( This accident was worse than the one from early 2005, when only 11 lives were lost.


And it has affected me in other regards, since I have been using the train to get around (especially passing through the section of track where the accident occurred; I've probably passed through it close to a thousand times already). There are buses taking people from the Ventura County stations to Chatsworth, where they can pick up a train (and come back similarly), and that has affected me in the regard that I've had to get up a little earlier and drive to Moorpark (a good 20 to 25 miles extra one way) to pick up the bus. And when I go home later, it'll take me a while longer to get home. But this is only temporary.

I'm feeling good in other regards, though.

I have an A: sometimes people lock threads if they don't want any further replies in them. Which I think is silly to do if the thread is useful.

A couple of times I locked a thread that was a true duplicate of another.

One time I locked a thread entitled "TV commercials you hate" which I started in the PPP way back in April 2004, but then someone posted a thread just like it in the 2000s' section. I figured it would be silly to have exactly two threads about the exact same thing in two different places, so I decided to lock that one....although now that I think about it, I kinda wish I had asked one of the moderators to merge that thread with the other one, but I did not know about the "merge" option back then (which I suppose is available only to the mods and admins).

The other such instance was "50s ABC(ish) list" in PBG. I hadn't known that there was already such a thread in existence.

I know how that is. Anytime I go on a long trip, especially one that involves a lot of traveling, there are all those things to consider, as you mentioned. For me, I haven't been on an especially long trip since 2002, when my family flew to Minneapolis.

...which I believe happened in the 60's. And according to what I read on Wikopedia, he was arrested in 1968 during the Democratic National Convention, along with seven other guys, who tried to protest against it.

Jeff, what kind of car or truck do you have? I have a brown 1978 Dodge Magnum with 382,000 miles and a driver's seat that has the back propped up with a piece of wood but surprisingly still runs good and delivers terrible gas mileage to boot, an orange 1982 Isuzu pickup that a friend gave me for free because his wife wanted it out of his sight (his wife still has to look at it every day because I live across the street from them, so I try to park it in the backyard lest I get assaulted or murdered), is completely trashed with no straight body panels, mismatched tires and no bumpers, and a red-over-tan 1981 California-specification Lancia Beta Zagato sports car (basically a coupe with a tiny rear seat, a folding rear roof and a detatchable front roof section) that my Uncle George won in a poker game in 1992, drove the wee out of, sold to me for $750 with a restoration started, and my current significant other attempted to help me finish restoring it, but we have only gotten as far as gutting it, taking the hood, front bumper, grille and radiator out and finding out that the transmission was shot with the only replacement that we could afford being located in Marquette, Michigan and that said transmission apparently got lost during shipping. By the way, I try not to pay more than $1,000 for a car.

Wow Andria, you sure are talkative!!

I don't actually own a car, per se...but I have been driving my parents' 1992 Toyota Camry, which they've owned since it was brand new. It's a great car; we've always been good about having it regularly maintained. It has over 266,000 miles on it (mostly due to regular long-distance driving during the 1990's, when my mom was traveling 40 miles one way to work every day), and it still runs quite well for a car that's 17 years old. We want to get a new car at some point (preferably a Camry hybrid or something along those lines), but we need to save up a great deal of money, also we wanna see how much longer our Camry can last. It's a great car; I've enjoyed it since we first got it. Of course, I was 11 at the time we bought it, but it was still my favorite car....and I'd always wondered if I'd eventually drive it.

The "Wind and the Willows", featuring Mr. Toad is good though "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" featuring Ichabod could've easily been done in 10 minutes.

It aired during Halloween weekend in the Reelz channel since the mouse network only aired their tween sitcoms while Jetix is more focused on Marvel superheroes and teenagers fighting fake looking monsters.

Well thank you for the nice compliment, that is very kind of you!! :) And for the record I don't know about your condition, since I am not a doctor (and do not plan on becoming one). Still, it sucks that you received a faulty kind of medication; you shouldn't have to be put through that. I have known a couple of doctors to do stuff like that (steer you in the wrong direction..); in such cases you might need to get a new doctor (like Erin said). That's the best advice I can think of.

I don't think I've seen a thread for "meanings of song lyrics", mostly because I haven't checked out the Song Lyrics board much. However, I have been reviewing some of the existing misheard lyric entries on Amiright.com lately and I've often google-searched to see what the "correct" ones really are. I also edit the Nonsensical Lyrics section, where people submit lyrics they think don't make sense.

That's not always how things have turned out for me, though.

As a matter of fact, I'm quite aware of that. ;) That's how it's been for the past month or two. For example, there was an episode in which the title characters got caught (as indicated by the title)*; it originally aired on Disney XD in mid-February, but premiered on Disney Channel on March 13. There was also a two-in-one ep which premiered on Disney XD on February 28 (the second half was entitled 'Elementary, My Dear Stacey' and was set in England), but it has yet to air on the Disney Channel.

* As a spoiler, I can tell you that their busting was all a bad dream of one of the characters, as indicated at episode's end; I even found out the synopsis online before I even watched the episode. I didn't wanna give this away to anyone who does watch the show, but it's just a way of assuring fans that everybody's safe in the end.

Written By: nally on 04/09/09 at 11:29 pm

I don't know if I can single out any player in particular, but I have always liked the Dodgers.

If I had to pick anyone, I would have to go with Manny Ramirez (as a current Dodger), or Orel Hershiser (if it were all-time).

Favorite baseball moment: it would have to be Kirk Gibson's walkoff, pinch-hit, comeback homerun in Game One of the 1988 World Series. As for regular-season moments, I would go with Steve Finley's walkoff grand-slam home run of October 2, 2004, which eliminated the Giants from playoff contention.

I reemmber that one. Against Eckersley. I was watching this game in a bar with friends and (this is a true story), my friend said "He's gonna hit a home run...just watch!". And he did. Pretty amazing. Although I wasn't a dodger fan, I preferred them to the A's.

Good call. 8) I have vague memories of seeing it on tv when it happened live, but I was only 8 years old at the time. And seeing LAD go all the way to win the World Series was great too. I even gave my dad a 1988 L.A. Dodgers videotape for Christmas.

Good call. 8) I have vague memories of seeing it on tv when it happened live, but I was only 8 years old at the time. And seeing LAD go all the way to win the World Series was great too. I even gave my dad a 1988 L.A. Dodgers videotape for Christmas.

It was a good series. I think that was the year Orel Hershiser was at his best.

I was also happy for Tom Lasorda. When I was younger I use to go to Expos games in Montreal and when they played the Dodgers back then, at that time Lasorda was the 3rd base coach (Walt Aslton was Mgr)  and Tommy always chatted with the crowd on the 3rd base line during breaks in the action. Even when someone in the crowd was cruel to him, he dished it back (without cursing). It was fun with him at those games.

I should also add: every year since then (1988), I have been watching baseball postseason coverage on TV, mainly the World Series. If my L.A. Dodgers don't make it, then I like to cheer for whichever teams are playing against the Braves and the Yankees. If those two teams end up facing e.o. in the World Series, then I don't watch it (thankfully that has happened only twice in the past 20 years, namely in 1996 and 1999). Why don't I like the Braves or the Yankees? Well, the Braves have their Tomohawk Chant, which I find annoying; and I don't care for the Yankes because they've won plenty of WS Championships already and I got sick of seeing them dominate in the AL East from 1996 thru 2006.

I found that Vista helps to shutdown the computer quicker.

My mom recently purchased a new computer, which was delivered to the house about 2 weeks ago...and it runs on Vista. I think Vista must be the "in" thing now; all the newer laptops seem to have it now. I noticed several differences between Vista and XP. A notable difference is the way the game of Solitaire is played.

Oh yes, plenty of times when I was growing up. All of them were at Dodger Stadium. The most recent one I went to was on July 27, 2005: Cincinnati Reds at L.A. Dodgers. It was my first time at the stadium in 9 years; we'd just happened to win tickets to the game. L.A. ended up not winning, but I still had a good time at the game.

How about you? Have you ever been to a game?

Yes, plenty, I'd say over 100 games. Seen games at several locations:
Montreal: Jarry park & Olympic Stadium
Toronto: Rogers center & Exhibition Stadium
New York : Old yankee Stadium
Phildelphia: Vet Stadium

Last game was about 1995 or 1996 for me as well.

Excellent. Like I said, since '96 we'd only been to one game, and that was in July 2005 as I mentioned above. Also, at that game, we left after the 7th inning so that we could avoid all the traffic on the way out. We listened to the rest of the game on the radio, and I believe it was late in the game when the Reds took the lead (thanks to the depleted bullpen the Dodgers had that year) and kept it for good.

I think I have an autographed ball from 1990, with signatures of all the players who were members of the Dodgers that year, but it's packed away somewhere...and that ball wasn't one of a kind.

Yes. Twice.

The first time was in mid-1994, when we flew to the Midwest. My mom has a life-long friend who lives just north of Chicago, so we went to visit her family...and then we traveled on to Iowa, where my dad had an uncle who was living in Cedar Rapids at the time. Then we went into Minnesota for a few days, visited the Mall Of America...and then on to Wisconsin, where we spent a day in the Wisconsin Dells area. Then we drove back into Illinois and then flew back home from Chicago Midway Airport.

The second time was in May 2002, when we flew to Minneapolis for the Catholic Press Association convention. My dad had to be there because the newspaper he works for, The Tidings (a weekly newspaper for the L.A. Archdiocese) was nominated for several awards, so we traveled there with him. The paper won Second Place for General Excellence.

So Jeff, what's your favorite topic within Penguin Quizzes?

Music. I love being able to figure out what song a line of lyrics is from. I've made some of those, with a special theme (all the titles have a particular word in common, or a form of the word). I want to do another one, but I haven't had time to put one together in the past three years. However I do have a couple ideas in mind.

There have also been "Same title, different song" quizzes; in the early days of those (about 5 years or so ago), we were given a list of performers and we had to pair them up and figure out what song title they had in common. I even made a couple quizzes of that nature too. In 2005 I decided to try one in which the performers were already paired up (for example, if one of the pairs was Bon Jovi ; Thompson Twins, then the answer would be "Lay Your Hands On Me"). I have compiled some of those pairs/groups and made them into quizzes on Amiwrong.com; if you click on my profile, you'll find a link that says "My quizzes on Amiwrong.com"; if you click on that, you can see a list of the quizzes I made; all 9 of them (which were made 2 years ago) are of the "Same title, different song" nature.

Yeah. About ten years ago. I watched one episode of it and wasn't too impressed with it...although I suppose there might've been some pretty good eps.

"Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries" was  mediocre though a few episodes I've seen on the DVD (featuring the first season) were entertaining for the cameos of obscure Looney Tunes characters and a few episodes are OK like when the  main characters are in Scotland and Australia.

Though some episodes tend to drag on like the Christmas episode that mostly feature Granny trying to help somebody to find an envelope while Sylvester, Tweety, and the dog Hector chases each other for chaep gags.

It's worth renting and I've seen far worse.

"Quack Pack" is pretty much Donald with three generic teenage nephews that were once Huey, Dewy, and Louie.

Hi woops. Sorry about the delay. I was just taking a little break from the boards.

I saw the premiere of that episode last week on Disney XD. A sneak preview showed the title characters actually getting busted (from grown-up Candace going back in time to the "Roller Coaster" episode to get her mom to see the evidence and report the situation as a serious emergency), but that altered the state of the rest of the world in that episode (once the Adult Candace returned to the 2020's, that is). So I decided to watch it in its entirety to see how they would return things to their normal form. At first the middle part of the episode kinda creeped me out, but I knew there would be light at the end of the tunnel.

Did you see it yet?

That's right, in the altered future, Dr. Doofenshmirtz decided to name everybody Joe so that he could remember only one name. Would have probably been funnier if he renamed himself Joe (although nothing was mentioned whether he did or not).

And then Adult Candace returned to the Rollercoaster Day and averted the whole mess by stopping her original adult self from going inside the supermarket and hiding behind a parked car, letting the original plot carry out as original (with Perry the Platypus lifting the entire rollercoaster off the ground with a large magnet and allowing the large ball of foil to defeat Dr. D). However, Young Candace said at the end that she was still going to continue to attempt to bust the boys.

It was also interesting to see Perry as an elderly platypus, altho I'm not entirely sure how long platypuses usually live.

Well, if you really like the guy and his music, then maybe it might be good to buy. If they are available at a certain bookstore (such as Barnes & Noble or Borders) and you have a gift card, then maybe you can use the gift card to buy them. Depends on how much they cost. Or maybe you should try to save up as much money as you can, and hope that they don't sell out.

gotta add my two cents... because there are some important things to know/consider before you make the decision


what are the books- how many are there in publication? how much are they.
have you seen them before- can you get pics of the inside- to see the quality of the work...

Also are the spines cracked? Are there book jackets? If so- any tears? scratches? any fingerprints? markings on the book?  all of this will decrease the value... unless you find a someone more fanatical than you who might be willing to pay for them... then again are you really planning on selling your MJ stuff?  ;D

Yeah, those are important things to consider.

Often times when I contemplate buying a music album, I like to take things into consideration such as "Will I enjoy the tracks? Does this style of music truly appeal to me? Will I still enjoy the album several years down the road?"

Hi Jeff and Snoz:

I'm really mulling over the books. I mean if the place had the one book I wanted--I specifically wanted the book just showing his clothes and personal belongings--but that book was sold out. I had been part of it online and I really liked some of the stuff I saw. Not that I could afford the actual belongings, but I wanted the book to look at. I mean it is hard on me because I get extreme buyer's remorse to the point of wanting to puke at times, but then again it is Michael Jackson and I adored Michael so much and always tried to be the best fan. I am saving, but when the time comes that I have it all and can buy, I wonder if I'll end up feeling sick.  :(  And there is so much MJ stuff flooding the market, I can pick and choose, but I know this is official and all this stuff is for Michael.

But really, I'm just gonna keep squirrelling away and when I get the entire sum, then I'll think it out. (But maybe something better will have come around.)

Well, yes and no. I think it's a nice idea to get the holiday shopping done asap to avoid the mad rush, like you said...but since my mom's birthday is on the 21st of November, I like to shop for her birthday gifts first. I've already gotten a nice 2010 wall calendar for her, but I'm not sure whether I'm gonna give it as a birthday present or christmas present. This weekend my dad and I are gonna go shopping and see what we can find.
