The Annual FrankGrimes Torture Thread

Recommended Posts

did your kidling celebrate St. Patty's day with you and your loverly husband?


No... not much of a "ST. Pat's" day around here.. I even forgot what day it was unitl later in the morning when the kidling says... Hey mom... Happy St. Patrick's day...


heehee! cute!


We had a big "awards ceremony" this evening for the scouting troop that the kidling is a part of... and as the coordinator for that I was busy most of the day here at home and then I left and had to get things set up this afternoon... And then most of the evening was the meeting and ceremony... so THAT was my St. Patrick's day...


i remember the girl scout troups when i was littler! i had lots of friends who were one. i still love the girl sctout cookies. heehee! a friend from my old class who's now in college with me still gets her yearly girl scout cookies and we still love them! its pretty pathetic, but thats okay. what kinds of awards were in the ceremony?


I even missed the Quiet Man... boo hoo... I need to watch it tonight before I call it a day, just so I can feel like ME again!! ha.


oh no! i watched that the other day with momma. she had never seen it, so it was a new experience for her.


I haven't seen McClintock in a couple of months... but I still recall all the fun we had chatting that one up one night... a LONG time ago... I will look forward to seeing those screencaps, little missy.


i remember too. that was a fun chit chat. i hope you like them!


Have a happy St. Patty kinda night.

Uh-oh. I see capital punishment lives on in California. First Dewey's Roxie and now

this! You are evil! And you ain't just a touch of, either.


That is a fascinating line-up of film noir. I haven't even heard of half of 'em.


Do you know what excites me the most about this festival? The Prowler. I'm

absolutely thrilled to learn it has been restored and is going to be shown. Ohhhh, I hope

that one comes to DVD or TCM.


I'm also interested in Chance Meeting, Sleep, My Love, Alias Nick Beal,

and Two O'Clock Courage.


The Company She Keeps would be a CineMaven special, since it has Jane

Greer and Liz Scott.

The eyeglasses in "Compulsion."


Or Dorothy Malone & Marilyn Monroe dispelling the myth of "men don't make passes at

girls who wear glasses" in "____________________" & "________________."


Fire up that thread, Lively Gal.
