What is your answering machine away message? If you don't have one, you can make it up!


WAIT, WHUT???? People still have answering machines?!?!



In other topics...

Anybody watch the NHL All-Star Game? Thoughts? I swore I was going to skip it, but I got a headache & didn't feel like reading or goofing around on the computer, so I vegged out in the La-Z-Boy and watched.

Is anyone else sick of things ALWAYS going Regina's way on Once Upon a Time? It's getting a little samey-samey to me. What about the way the show always blows its wad in the previews for the next ep? (Gee, thanks for telling us who the Beast is!) PLEASE, SHOW, DON'T MAKE ME HATE YOU.

OUAT: Haven't seen last night's episode (just read recaps), but YES, I'm sick of Regina always getting her way! And unless there's some kind of a twist with the Beast's identity, they've just scarred me for life. Ewwwww!

Regina always winning didn't really bother me all that much until last night's episode. At the end, I was just like "THAT WAS SOOOOO PREDICATABLE". I never watched Lost but I know the same people are involved with OUAT & wasn't Lost supposed to be clever & surprising/shocking? I WANT TO BE SHOCKED BY SOMETHING, OUAT.

And I totally agree with your Ewwww ;)

I watched the ASG. I don't really have all that many thoughts on it though, haha. Malkin was fun to watch, I'm glad Letang and Neal were able to get on the score sheet as well.

Oh you know me, I hate Regina so I'm so sick of this stuff with her. It gets boring and frustrating when you get excited that something good might be happening or people might be able to take her on, and then it's not even possible. If no one can ever take her on and win when dealing with the littlest things, then what's the point because every episode is going to be the same.

The Beast thing is interesting, I'm kind of confused by it. How/why can he be so many characters? I'm not exactly sure how I feel about it yet.

I'm glad NBC finally remembered that Neal was actually there. /mini-rant

Remember in the pilot of OUAT, Emma claimed that she could tell when someone is lying to her. Was she just saying that? Did the writers drop that plot point? Does it not work on people from fairytale land? Cause you'd think that little skill would save her a lot of trouble.

I think it's laziness on the writers' part to make Rumples be every character EVER. I'm willing to bet they make him the Big Bad Wolf, too.

I agree about Neal, and I don't feel like Malkin got enough attention either. He should have been picked first in that stupid draft. I actually got angry about that as I was watching the draft, and then got mad at myself for being angry over something so stupid. Oh, and at one point I honestly thought Neal was going to be picked last.

Oh, that is a good point about Emma being able to tell when people are lying. She knew that Hansel and Gretel were lying to her and that was just a few episodes ago. So maybe there's hope that she's not buying into all of this nonsense and is just letting them think she believes them.

Yeah, I really don't understand why he's the Beast. I don't know, I'm going to wait until I see the episode to fully develop my opinion.

During the first half of the Skills Competition, I didn't even see Neal when they'd show everyone siting around...I thought he went out for a beer & nachoes or something. When Lurch picked DATSPUKE (of all people), I was raging too. WTFFFFF??? But then I sort of got the impression that Chara didn't like many of the guys on his team, unless they were Bruins or Czechs or Datspuke. Did you see where Neal thought he was going to be picked last all the way there? I will admit to screaming at the TV...if you want to win this (meaningless) game, why would you not pick the guy 2nd in goals?!?!? And some of those jokes that went before him...Hartnell, Timmonen, all the Senators, etc etc etc etc...and yeah, I got a little more worked up over it than I should have lol.

I hope you're right that she knows Sydney (I refuse to spell it the standard way & insult our captain lol) & Regina are lying. THAT would be a nice twist for once. I'd like to see her nail them at a critical point in the story.

...at least Emilie de Ravin looks good as Belle...? I'm grasping for a bright spot here! ;)

Yes, some of us old fogies have answering machines to go with our land lines.

I have a landline. I work for a phone company & they're not nearly as rare as people think they are.

Well, most people I know have a land line, too except my employee, who not only don't have them, but never seem keep the same cell phone number for more than one year.

My parents do, haha. They will never get rid of their land line! Hell, we still had a rotary phone until...1996? We only had one tv in the house until after I left for college in 2001, and they didn't get cable until 2009. We also didn't get internet(and it was dial up) until 1998, when I was a sophomore in high school.

Jesus I just aged myself. IS IT OREGON TRAIL DAY YET?

I have an answering machine, but I don't even know if it still works. It's been in a cupboard next to the phone gathering dust forever. I still have a landline (I work for a phone company and they're not nearly as rare as people think). I don't think we got internet until 97 or 98, either (didn't upgrade to DSL until maybe 5 years ago?).

we still do but I never use it.

I watched a little bit of it but then I had other things to do.

I am. I'm also getting sick of mr.gold being involved in almost everything. If he really si the beast I am going to cry. B&B is my favourite fairytale.

ITA about Mr Gold. For awhile he didn't bother me because there were a few eps he either wasn't in or was in them very little, but yeah, he's getting as bad as Regina (though he doesn't annoy me quite as much...yet).

I think they meant the voicemail on your cell phone, dork. :P

Jan. 31st, 2012 12:47 pm (UTC)
THEN WHY DIDN'T THEY SAY "VOICEMAIL ON YOUR CELLPHONE" INSTEAD OF "ANSWERING MACHINE", DORK? DO YOU KNOW ANYONE WITH A CELLPHONE WHO REFERS TO THEIR VOICEMAIL AS THEIR "ANSWERING MACHINE"? YEAH, DIDN'T THINK SO. >:|

I didn't watch for reasons I explain in some set of comments somewhere... or I can just repeat myself. Little bro had a game on the same day, and we go out to eat afterwards so I missed it. But I see the replays of it on and just... *yawn* and turn something else on.

BUT I WAS CHEERING FOR TEAM CHARA TO TAKE TEAM ALFIE DOWN SO HARD.

Feb. 2nd, 2012 02:20 pm (UTC)
LOL I was cheering for Team Alfie.

Okay, that's a lie, I was cheering for Neal. (And for a cameraman to actually find Neal.) And Malkin, kinda-sorta, even though that team had more ppl I hate (Chara, Thomas, Hossa, Kane, Fartsmell, etc) than Team Alfie. And I cheered for Lupul, cause I enjoyed his trolling. So I guess that even though I was cheering for more people on Team Chara, technically I wasn't cheering for an actual team.....NGL I WANTED TO KICK STAMKOS' STUPID ASS FOR GETTING A PENATLY SHOT AND GOING ALL RETARDED HOT DOG. (But then I always want to kick Stamkos in the teeth, so it's not much different.)/rambling

(OMG MY MOTHER HAS DECIDED SHE LIKES A DIRTY FLYER, I AM ADOPTED OMG!!!!!! I BET MY REAL MOM IS LIKE THE QUEEN OF SOME OBSCURE EUROPEAN KINGDOM & HERE I AM, BEING ALL PEASANT-Y...I EXPLAINED TO THE WOMAN WHO STOLE ME @ BIRTH THAT AS A PENS FAN, SHE IS LEGALLY OBLIGATED TO HATE ALL FLYERS AND REFER TO THEM AS EITHER "DIRTY FLYERS" OR "PUPPY KICKERS THAT EAT BUNNIES FOR BREAKFAST".)

I wouldn't have rooted for any team, but Alfie did the Sens/Sweden team thing and I hated that and I wanted them to GO DOWN, lol. Otherwise I would have been indifferent (not that I watched, but still.)

(...Is it Giroux? Because I sadly like him too, and desperately wish he was on a better team. I EXPLAINED TO THE WOMAN WHO STOLE ME @ BIRTH THAT AS A PENS FAN, SHE IS LEGALLY OBLIGATED TO HATE ALL FLYERS AND REFER TO THEM AS EITHER "DIRTY FLYERS" OR "PUPPY KICKERS THAT EAT BUNNIES FOR BREAKFAST" I think I laughed a good 5 minutes over this, ngl, holy crap. )

I cannot wait for the ASG when one of the captains goes full-on troll and nabs the other captains' teammates, fellow countrymen, etc.

(Yup, it's Giroux. She was all "WHO IS THAT ADORABLE BOY?" and after I lectured her about how he has a dark, black soul and probably skins kittens to make lampshades & engages in other unsavory activities, she was all "oh well, he's a cutie & seems decent in his interviews". I even tried convincing her that Hartnell is his dad lololol. No dice. I will DENY THIS UNTIL MY DYING DAY, but I sort of like him too. I mean, what a player. And he looks like a Weasley lol. OH GOSH I FEEL DIRTY JUST ADMITTING THAT...LIKE I SHOULD GO SAY HAIL SIDNEYS OR SOMETHING OMG.)

See, they need to let Burish go to an ASG, make him Captain because I'm sure he would do it. Or Ott, just to be an ass. And it would hilarious.

(OH! WEASLEY COMPARISON! I DIDN'T THINK OF THAT. But yes, yes, I could see it xD And I didn't hear a peep outta you, 'unno what you're talking about ;) )
amyofaquitaine
Feb. 5th, 2012 10:25 pm (UTC)
OMG either Burish or Ott would be an awesome choice. Especially Ott, I think, just for the added bonus that it would piss the announcers off too lolololol.

(This is sooooo horrible, but I was re-reading Goblet of Fire a few months ago and whenever Charlie was in the book, the-evil-red-headed-stepchild immediately popped into my head everytime. I briefly thought of having my self committed lol.)

I was trying to think of other annoying pesk in the NHL, but I kept going back to those two and was laughing over the mental image alone. I'd rather Ott, though, because he's pretty much hated and despised everywhere outside of Dallas, so he'd be booed nonetheless and he thrives under that stuff xD

(LOLOLOL awwww. I've been wanting to re-read them lately but their in California and siiiigh.)
