I'm going to guess I had my matchup taken away since I was gone for a few months there.  Can I get a new one?  They'll be the next two in my Netflix queue.

So I acquired Garlic and thus can do this pairing afterall...having completed my present pairing can I have this one back?

Apparently not, according to skjerva's rules. Do you want the next one on the list?

Quote from: skjerva
If a film is unavailable to you, it is then up for grabs for whoever is interested and able to acquire it.

By this standard that pairing is up for grabs right now to someone who is interested/able to acquire. Not sure why it should matter that that person is the one who originally had it unavailable. I didn't see anything more specific on that rules list that would preclude it.

It's just that the MO thus far has been random assignments. Any toss-backs have been thrown back into the magical random distributor.

If Garlic is a tricky film to procure, and Bondo has a copy, it seems silly not to let him do it. Although, maybe I should just stay out of this.  :)

Well I'm confused.  I just want a pairing! 

I saw that my listed pairing was in the Toss-Back.  Should I just do it anyway?
