DavidsGirl841444
October 23rd, 2007, 10:19 AM

christinac
October 23rd, 2007, 10:32 AM
Oh god, can I get a clone!!! :lol:

DavidsGirl841444
October 24th, 2007, 09:21 AM
Clones are good they are as real as the original and possible for everyone to have a piece of them. So did not mean to refer to him like a piece of meat he is not meat.

Dani
October 24th, 2007, 09:02 PM
He is a piece of meat...Man meat that we women hunger for. :lol:

christinac

DavidsGirl841444
October 30th, 2007, 09:13 AM
Hey that disease is not that bad I mean some of my friends have that and they are proud of it thankfully I am some where in the middle of it all. But both are great to have its unique.

CharmedGirl
October 30th, 2007, 08:08 PM
Hmmm how do you decide whether you have too little an a** or too big. You should think your a** is just right and not worry about what other people think. LOL

christinac
October 31st, 2007, 07:08 AM
So true little bit of inside info I have a scar on butt b/c I was shot with a BB Gun about a year ago. :lol:

DavidsGirl841444
October 31st, 2007, 11:33 AM
Whoa who shot you and did you get revenge I would have.

christinac
November 1st, 2007, 06:55 AM
Actually no I didn't get revenge it was an accident but I have to say that my boyfriend did

DavidsGirl841444
November 1st, 2007, 08:22 AM
Oh so he got major compensation for shooting his girl in the butt like chocolate or dinner and flowers thats all nice. Or slave for a day.

CharmedGirl
November 5th, 2007, 02:07 AM
Actually no I didn't get revenge it was an accident but I have to say that my boyfriend did

Well you should have got a little revenge even if it was an accident :lol:

DavidsGirl841444
November 5th, 2007, 12:01 PM
Amne to that sister. revenge is always best served i don't care if it is cold or luke warm.

CharmedGirl
November 6th, 2007, 08:41 PM
A little bit of revenge is always good even if you are just helping someone get back at someone else. LOL

Dani
November 6th, 2007, 10:22 PM
Dang, remind me to never do anything to either of you. I might not live afterward. :lol:

CharmedGirl
November 6th, 2007, 10:31 PM

DavidsGirl841444
November 7th, 2007, 11:12 AM

DavidsGirl841444
November 8th, 2007, 10:15 AM
Yeah especially when it is good payback make him regret being bad

christinac
November 8th, 2007, 03:41 PM
You know now that you think about it I did make his nose bleed about a week after that but I didn't intend on doing it. We were play wrestling and his nose bleeds real easy and well it started bleeding.

DavidsGirl841444
November 9th, 2007, 11:27 AM
Well that is kind of weird but I guess even poor guy though. I with held the goods from him so many times he says he sorry right away.

christinac
November 9th, 2007, 01:07 PM
I couldn't hold back b/c I want it as bad he does :lol:

CharmedGirl
November 9th, 2007, 10:57 PM
Well that is kind of weird but I guess even poor guy though. I with held the goods from him so many times he says he sorry right away.

Denying your boyfriend certain benefits is not only punishment for him it's punishment for yourself :lol:

DavidsGirl841444
November 10th, 2007, 02:15 PM
Yeah but I could take it more then hjim I mean they do think of it more times in the day then myself. Poor baby.

CharmedGirl
November 11th, 2007, 01:34 AM
Well like Sarah Michelle Gellar said in that movie Simply Irresistible. A man thinks about sex every 4 minutes or so...well I think that's what she says in that movie but I'll have to watch it again just to make sure. LOL

Dani
November 11th, 2007, 01:41 AM
Men are always thinking about sex. It should be more like every 20 seconds that a man thinks about sex instead of every 4 minutes. :lol:

CharmedGirl
November 11th, 2007, 01:44 AM
That is true with some men but not all of them. There is also this part in that movie that when a man plays with his belt or any part of his pants he's thinking about sex. LOL

Dani
November 11th, 2007, 01:46 AM
That's pretty sad. :lol:

CharmedGirl
November 11th, 2007, 01:47 AM
Ummm well it's probably true though. LOL

DavidsGirl841444
November 11th, 2007, 01:24 PM
Yeah the whole thinking about sex my guys says alot alot. and then some. I loved that movie.

CharmedGirl
November 11th, 2007, 08:55 PM
It's been a while since I've seen Simply Irresistible but it was a great movie. I liked the little crab that watched over her. LOL

DavidsGirl841444
November 12th, 2007, 10:14 AM
Oh yeah and the whole food giving off emotion thing was great and sean patrick flanery was hot I think that is how you spell his name.

CharmedGirl
November 13th, 2007, 07:39 PM
Yep the main male character was hot and if that's not how you spell his name than it is pretty close. LOL

KeriArthur
November 13th, 2007, 08:45 PM
Oh yeah and the whole food giving off emotion thing was great and sean patrick flanery was hot I think that is how you spell his name.

I love sean patrick flannery. Have you seen the boondock saints or best men? Both are great (tho a little off the wall--and boondocks is very violent)

CharmedGirl
November 13th, 2007, 08:57 PM
Nope I haven't seen either of those Keri but I do remember Sean Patrick Flannery is the TV show The Dead Zone. I absolutely loved that show when it was on here in Australia.

Dani
November 14th, 2007, 12:04 AM
I've never seen him in anything that I know of.

CharmedGirl
November 14th, 2007, 12:16 AM
I've hardly seen Sean Patrick Flannery in any other shows or movies apart from what I've listed but another guy from TV I love is Jack from the TV show Bones but I love David Boreanaz more. LOL

KeriArthur
November 14th, 2007, 01:52 AM
Nope I haven't seen either of those Keri but I do remember Sean Patrick Flannery is the TV show The Dead Zone. I absolutely loved that show when it was on here in Australia.

Yeah, I love the dead zone. I got pee'd off with the stations always taking it off, so I've started collecting the DVD. There's six seasons of it so far

The Boondock Saints never got much of a cinema release, but it became a massive hit (and cult classic) when it was released to DVD. They're currently making a sequel (yay). It's a pulp fiction type movie (as I said, very violent)

DavidsGirl841444
November 14th, 2007, 01:53 AM
Oh loved the boondocks saints awesome movie I love their saying at the end the brothers and dad. And Best Man was a great sad movie made me cry you 'd all like it. And David Boreanaz is a hot and the greatest thing in the world since slice bread.

CharmedGirl
November 14th, 2007, 08:43 PM
Yeah, I love the dead zone. I got pee'd off with the stations always taking it off, so I've started collecting the DVD. There's six seasons of it so far


I'm sure we've only got through two seasons so far of it but I saw the first three seasons on DVD at the shops the other day and I was going to get it or am going to get it sooner or later

:lol:

DavidsGirl841444
November 15th, 2007, 09:49 AM
Dad loves that show must say it isn't bad for a guy who looked not that great when he was a kid he sure as grown up.

CharmedGirl
November 17th, 2007, 11:36 PM
I really love Ewan McGregor as Obi Wan Kenobi. I've changed the men we are posting about because I don't have anything more to say about Sean Patrick Flannery. LOL

Dani
November 17th, 2007, 11:38 PM
Oh, he's a hottie too! Have you ever seen him in a kilt? :hellobaby:

CharmedGirl
November 17th, 2007, 11:52 PM
I've seen most of his movies and I don't remember him wearing a kilt and to answer your question I haven't seen him in a kilt at all. I bet he looked pretty good and hopefully he was wearing nothing underneath. LOL

Dani
November 18th, 2007, 12:02 AM
I only saw a picture of him once. I don't think he ever wore one in a movie though.

I can tell you that there are a few men I'd love to see in a kilt. :whoohoo:

CharmedGirl
November 18th, 2007, 12:04 AM
Me too. Hugh Jackman would be one and let us hope that when that happens he isn't wearing anything under it. LOL

Dani
November 18th, 2007, 12:07 AM
Oh yeah!! :roflmao:

CharmedGirl
November 18th, 2007, 12:12 AM
Okay now you have to name someone you want to see in a kilt. It's only fair after I named someone. LOL

CharmedGirl
November 18th, 2007, 12:13 AM
Wait a minute Gerard Butler would have to be another person we want to see wear a kilt. LOL

Dani
November 18th, 2007, 12:21 AM
You just named the man of my dreams and the one I was going to name. Hmmmm...Let's see who I can come up with...

Matthew McConaughey!! He'd look nice in one! :hellobaby:

CharmedGirl
November 18th, 2007, 12:24 AM
Oh yeah Matthew McConaughey would look mighty fine in a kilt. LOL

I knew we'd both be thinking Gerard Butler would look mighty fine in a kilt. That was predictable.

christinac
November 19th, 2007, 12:08 PM
Sorry guys I've been realy busy but I will try to get here whenever I can. If I'm not on before Thanksgiving everyone have a great one.

DavidsGirl841444
November 19th, 2007, 12:47 PM
You to girly. Ok I would love to see Gerald and matthew in a kilt but lets see like to see brad pitt in a kilt that man may be on all womens mind but he is still to fine to pass up and yes with nothing underneath.

Dani
November 20th, 2007, 12:58 AM
Chica, after seeing him in Troy in that leather (for lack of a better word) skirt...I don't need to see him in a kilt. Just put him in that uniform again and I'll be satisified! :swoon:

I loved seeing Mel Gibson in a kilt. Oh, and the Highlander himself (at least on TV) Adrian Paul!! :hellobaby:


I should mention Sean Connery too.:biggrin:

DavidsGirl841444
November 20th, 2007, 09:08 AM
O I am with you on Adrian Paul because he is a cutey but Sean Connery maybe when he was back in the day of james bond would him in a kilt been hot. But now I pray he has underwear on or something under there. Hehehee!

CharmedGirl
November 20th, 2007, 08:20 PM
I'm not a real big fan of Mel Gibson but Sean Connery when he played James Bond :hellobaby:

DavidsGirl841444
November 21st, 2007, 11:18 AM
Ok yeah he was a hottie back in the day and Mel is a cutie with the eyes and rough body frame.

Dani
November 22nd, 2007, 11:05 PM

CharmedGirl
November 28th, 2007, 12:19 AM
My mum and dad have decided they are spending Christmas with my sister and her family so I'm going to be spending Christmas with my boyfriend and his family. My mum is however having a get together on the 23rd so I'll get to see my family and get my presents. Hooray for that. LOL

AussieHeMan
November 28th, 2007, 12:42 AM

CharmedGirl
November 28th, 2007, 01:11 AM

CharmedGirl

I have heaps of friends that have birthdays around Christmas I even have one that is born on Christmas Day and she hates it because she doesn't get double the presents. LOL

Dani
November 28th, 2007, 09:57 PM
I almost always got double presents. :biggrin:

AussieHeMan
November 28th, 2007, 11:44 PM
Damn you're lucky Irishwolf. I wish I got double presents around Christmas time because there is always something I want. LOL

CharmedGirl
November 29th, 2007, 12:25 AM
I want books for Christmas but then again there are a lot of other things I would like for Christmas as well like movie tickets so I can go to the movies whenever I want. I'd also like a whole new wardrobe full of clothes. LOL

AussieHeMan
November 29th, 2007, 12:54 AM
Gee you want a lot Bec but I'm sure there are a lot of other things you want like Jewelry and perfume. Well those are things my girlfriend requested from me this Christmas. LOL

CharmedGirl
November 29th, 2007, 01:10 AM
Everyone asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I had to finally sit down and write a list and hand it over for everyone to see. LOL

AussieHeMan
November 29th, 2007, 01:35 AM
The list that you wrote was probably a mile long. LOL

DavidsGirl841444
November 29th, 2007, 09:30 AM
Hey any good girl can make a list for christmas a mile long if she really wants to maybe two.

Poor Bec! I feel for you having Christmas in the middle of summer. That's too weird to think about.

Lucky chica I saw it once in New York for one morning when I was on my way back to Miami didn't snow until I lef then it wasn't the pure white one it was the gray muddy kind.

KeriArthur
December 12th, 2007, 04:35 PM
At least in Melbourne, we have a fair chance of it being cool or cold on Christmas day. It's only stinking hot something like half the time. This year, they're predicting storms, which probably means it'll be hot. lol

billijo
December 12th, 2007, 07:30 PM
that would stink. as much as i complain about the cold and snow i really couldnt imagine christmas at least without the cold the last few years we havent had snow till after christmas. even when i live in louisiana it was cool about 40 degrees which actually is kind of warm compaired to new hampshire. kerri you should come to new hampshire around this time mount washinton is stunning!

December 13th, 2007, 04:31 PM
xmasreindeer I agree Billijo i moan about the weather and (we have had a few flurries but thats all) but christmas in summer just wouldn't seem right we have 6:1 odds for snow but its more likely to be here for my birthday cos i want to go out

I am new to the message boards. Just joined yesterday. Keri, I know what it is like at Christmas in Australia. I lived in Woomera, SA for a couple of years about quite a few years ago. It was a different experience being 120 degrees in the shade! I still like my cold weather at Christmas!! Although, I do have to say that Australia is beautiful country!

KathyLou

CharmedGirl

Lucky you DG...all my sister's kids wanted to do was open all the presents even the ones that weren't theirs to open. It was pretty funny!

billijo
December 27th, 2007, 10:59 AM
my 4 year old kept trying to unwrap them all before christmas. she's deaf and we have a hard time getting her to understand so we had to keep them all in the bedroom untill christmas eve after she went to bed. I was still wrapping presents christmas morning....lol

Dani
January 1st, 2008, 11:53 PM
Well let's see...I didn't get to bed until about 2am and I was woken up at 3am when my cat brought me a present he was proud of. It took me a few minutes to process what this present was and that it was alive and running on my blanket. Can you guess what it was? It was a baby field mouse and he was playing with it like it was a toy. Lucky for me the mouse was tired, so it was easy to catch and I was able to take it outside and set it free. The rest of the day was uneventful for the most part thank gosh!

Hope everyone else's day was better. :biggrin:

DavidsGirl841444

I'm used to the mice since we've owned them before. They're actually very cute to me, but not unless they're in a cage. Get this, I woke up around 7am to take some meds and use the bathroom and I found a tiny mole on the floor where I put my feet when I get out of bed and yes it was dead. My baby loves me (he's just bringing me the wrong presents...LOL)!!


Thanks Dani and sorry i missed your birthday :happybday: Dani i don't get near the computer much when the kids arn't at school

I wasn't allowed to take pictures inside the mansion, but I can tell you that it was very beautiful. I'll post the prints that I bought there of the inside of the house when I get them in the computer.

Dani, Let me know how the Witchling is I have read the Changeling and that one was good. There's another one too but I can't remember the name of it.

Dani
January 7th, 2008, 09:56 AM
Witchling is the first book in the series and it's awsome. It explains a lot that you hear about in the begining of Changeling (with the skinwalker, Bad Ass Luke, the harpy, etc.). Darkling is the next book after Changeling.

hollie
January 7th, 2008, 06:13 PM
i enjoyed them i got darkling preordered but i don't think its due out till Feb

Dani
January 7th, 2008, 11:47 PM
It sucks that you don't have Darkling out over there yet Hollie. I promise that I won't mention anything about it until after I know you're finished reading it. :biggrin:

Yasmine's got another one coming out in a few months (July I believe) called Dragon Wytch. This one picks up on Camille telling the story again. The cover is beautiful and the story's getting hotter! Take a look at her site and read what she has up about it. http://www.galenorn.com/sotm/start.php?body=sotm-dragonwytch.htm (http://www.galenorn.com/sotm/start.php?body=sotm-dragonwytch.htm)
