The best part of handing out tests and quizzes - that smell!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes and congrats! It was a perfect day! We were able to getaway for a long weekend in Charleston, SC where the weather was beautiful.

I will post some pictures as soon as I have some good ones. I did post one in the Life Changes thread.

Congrats, I quite liked Charleston though I don't think I have been there in 20 odd years now

I would like to thank Sam for updating the list of best by year polls and putting on with our TV episodes shenanigans and vote-changing.

Turns out the best kind of Snob is the one that is compulsively drawn to establish yearly rankings.

Happy to do it. It's a good way to feel productive without that much work.

Taking a lull in my holiday for an announcement. Some people might be shocked to learn that I do not celebrate Thanksgiving but there is not much I can do about that. With that in mind, the end of the year seems like a good moment to air some thoughts.

Martin: Thanks for challenging me on the Once v Before Sunrise poll. My mind hasn't been changed, but now I have a new score to obsess about and listen to at two in the morning when I feel sad or Irish. It should help staying away from Hamilton...

1SO: Without your many (many) marathons there would be genres I would be much more ignorant about, in particular horror. Thank you for organising them every year and pushing me to try new stuff I would otherwise be reluctant to get to. The Thing was loads of fun, and your recommendations are, as a rule, spot on.

Corndog: I will always be envious of your being able to attend screenings before anyone ; a plague on your house and all that. It allows me to know in advance, to a certain degree of accuracy, whether or not I will like those movie though, so not all is darkness and desolation. Also, I like your writing.

Sandy: I never understand your reviews but I am glad you write them.

Teproc: You make me feel self conscious about all the movie I have to catch up with but that's alright because then you also make me feel self conscious about the length and quality (and existence) of my reviews.

pixote: Your ever-present non-capitalised signature is a beacon of stability in all our lives.

Corndog & pixote: The Filmspots are one of my favourite things on the boards. Your work is appreciated.

Bondo: Thanks for the threads you are in charge of too. Your reviews are compelling, different readings of the movies I have watched.

oldkid: I am beginning to suspect you are not a kid. It's okay though, you like anime, and Avatar, which is a separate thing, and also other non-animated things. Good luck on your new projects (I voted teacher, but I am not sure this is a public's choice situation).

chardy: I don't know if you realise, but it's NYE in the northern hemisphere right now - I guess yours is like in July right ? I will get back to you then.

Dave: Thank you for the Box Office games. If I win, I will give you half the prize.

smirnoff: You always manage to make me laugh, which is not that hard to do really, but my real life conversations are sorely lacking in context-appropriate gifs. Keep up the good work.

DarkeningHumour: Stop talking about yourself in the third person.

jdc: I dare not imagine what you are going to do to listen to live jazz now. Who ever heard of such a thing in London ? Anyway, thanks for the beers. I am going to have a couple in a minute. They do not cost half a month's salary. What a brave new world.

Junior: I was going to compliment you in specific terms but I don't want the conversation to be moved to the Junior spoiler thread. Instead I will try to remain general. « Makes some sensible points but sometimes the plot veers into insane directions that leave me nonplussed. There are not that many action scenes ; the comedy makes up for it though.Easy watch with a great cast of characters. ***** - Will rewatch, but not in a sexual way. »

goodguy: Thank you for reminding me that there are tons of movies out there that never make their way to my multiplex.

The Mods: You put up with all my various kinds of nonsense, which is not always easy I am told.

The Admins: Thank you for all your work and for taking care of this forum - even though I know you're really all fragments of saltine's psyche, which got fractured when a kangaroo hit her with an alligator on the head some years ago. You're pretty alright for fictional people.

I shall not be wishing anyone a happy year because the forum runs on the Filmspots calendar, as is only proper.

Toodles.

(If I have forgotten anyone just assume I was in a hurry to join the celebrations, or I am drunk, or possibly, and not entirely improbable, a bit thick.)
