Subject: A little game!

Written By: Dude111 on 01/07/09 at 12:04 am

Each person has to start a sentence with the next letter of the alphabet.

Starting with 'A' right through to 'Z',no going twice in a row,thats cheating!

No repeating the same letters in a row.

I will start on 'A' then the next can start on 'B' and so on.....


Are you ready for this fun game?

By the way,How did you come up with this?

Subject: Re: A little game!

Written By: nally on 01/13/09 at 10:29 pm

Could it be an idea from some other messageboard...or perhaps the idea was spawned a game from "Whose Line Is It Anyway" called "90 Second Alphabet" in which the players have 1 1/2 minutes to have an alphabetic conversation about a certain topic/scene, starting with a certain letter and proceeding through the alphabet, making one trip through the alphabet within the 1 1/2-minute time limit.

Red one would only be accurate twice a day, but blue one would probably be more accurate, since it becomes one second slower each day.

First time I read that, the phrase "elevator music" came to mind; I always wondered what that term referred to; according to Wikapedia, it refers to the gentle instrumental arrangements of the music you hear in places like shopping malls, grocery stores, department stores, telephone systems (while the caller is on hold), cruise ships, airports, doctors' and dentists' offices......and of course, elevators.

Every year since '91 (with the exception of 2005), we've been having it at home. We cook, and have family members come over. (In 2005 we went to a family member's house and brought over some cooked vegetables as our contribution to the meal.)

Zac Efron seems to be one of the latest celebs attaining popularity...possibly due to his starring in the High School Musical film series, and then going into the music scene.

And those high school movies are popular, esp if you have kids or tweens.

Subject: Re: A little game!

But the main stars of the movie had long since finished high school in real life, as they are in their twenties now. For example, Ashley Tisdale is now 24, Zac Efron is now 22, and Vanessa Hudgens is now 21 (but she was probably still in her teens when the first HSM movie was filmed).

Hold on a moment... on occasion, an actor might be younger than their character; for example, on Frasier, the character of Martin Crane was supposedly 60 years old sometime in the 1990's, but John Mahoney, who played him, didn't turn 60 until the year 2000.

Do you really want to know? Okay, I'll tell you: "Saved By The Bell." One of the main characters, A.C. Slater (played by Mario Lopez) was on the school's wrestling team, and in a third-season episode, a girl who proved to be really good at the sport joined the team (after initially rejected), and became Zack Morris' (Mark Paul Gosselaar) girlfriend for that particular episode.

Subject: Re: A little game!

Written By: Frank on 12/28/09 at 11:37 pm

Like some cartoons, or Disney Channel sitcoms. As a guy in my late 20s, I do admit I enjoy programs such as "The Suite Life", "Hannah Montana", "Sonny With A Chance" and "Phineas & Ferb." The latter is a cartoon show, but it is still interesting to watch.

Funny that we can regard 100 posts as a good total these past 2 months, wheres it was just a regular day before that.

Good observation there; we still need to have more posting activity like we did before mid-March. Don't count on it happening much during the week, since two of the top contributors (one of whom is me) are now working, something they weren't doing a year ago.

Very true, mainly because back then we didn't have the technology that we have these days. If that show had taken place within the past 10 years, the shoe phones would probably have cell phone capability.
