[quote=""rockygirl""]My collections are so mundane compared to the rest of yours. I collect Noah's Arks--I have about two dozen.[/quote] ooh, that sounds interesting - people's collections are never mundane if it's what your passionate about. Are they china/porcelain or wooden or what? I'm looking f...

These are gorgeous Michy! A few years ago when Lord of the Rings films were out, I saw Arwen & Aragorn Barbies, I was very tempted to get them, but I don't need to start another collection. I really liked the Scarlet O'Hara dolls, which outfit is the missing one? I recognise the other 3, but can't t...

Dead and Gone - Charlaine Harris (one of the Sookie Stackhouse books)

and tomorrow it's supposed to be stinking hot, so I've got plans to take To Defy a King to the airconditionted shopping centre for an "outing" ;) in the middle of the hottest part of the day.

This reminds me of somewhere I visited when i was in the Blue Mountains (NSW) last year. It's a tea-shop whihc houses over 3000 teapots! The guy who runs / owns it was given his first teapot about 30 years ago, and people just kept on giving them to him, and it's gradually built up to the size it is...

[quote=""EC2""]Ejays17 - I'd like to see The King's Speech at some point - sounds like a good film. For my sins I have just got around to watching Ridley Scott murder Robin Hood. OMG it's stupendously silly. Okay, I know it's fiction, I know it's a story, but historical events are included but so ba...

[quote=""Ash""](ok, aside from military and technical uses, what does SLOC stand for?)[/quote] It's from the Chalet School books by Elinor M Brent-Dyer, the main character refers to her future husband as a Solid Lump of Comfort at one point, and a site I belong to co-opted it to refer to one's partn...

[quote=""Michy""]What a very cool thing to collect.

First movie of the "year" for us was "The King's Speech" - I usually have a bit of trouble getting SLOC to come see period pieces whihc don't have guaranteed explosions and / or bloodshed, but he was quite enthusiastic about this one. We both really enjoyed it, and can totally see why there's Oscar-...
