*googles Wilf*

Still not sure what it means, so probably not.

Should Imus be fired?

No firing's too easy, he should be hung by his toes in a dungeon for a while. Then tar and feather him and run him out of town. People used to know how to deal with slimebags and scum - this suspension business is totally ineffective.

How many times a day do you use google?

It's my homepage, so pretty much constantly.

Looks up wilf on wikipedia, which is a far better source for things like that than Google

Yes. Constantly.

What did Don Imus do now?

Smart aleck. The answer remains "not really."

Imus called the Rutgers women's basketball team, who just finished second in the national tournament, a bunch of "nappy-headed hos." So charming. Belch!

There isn't really anything exactly like what Americans call talk radio in the UK, a lot of things close to it, but nothing exactly like it. I do sometimes listen to Al Franken when I'm with my Mom in California.

Sorry, that wasn't meant to sound smart-alecky; it was more a dig at Wikipedia than at you.

Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong or Wonderful World by Sam Cooke?

No problem, diri, I was just teasing! I forget that people can't see me laughing when I type, and I probably should have used a smiley.

Louis Armstrong all the way. His version just might be my favorite song of all time.

What was your first favorite internet activity back in the old days? Surfing, usenet, message boards?

Schoolwork. My mom had Prodigy back in the early 90s when I was in high school before the Internet took off and we could only use it for school work and only quickly because there were no local providers at that time and it was a long distance number.

How can anyone like anyone's version of "What A Wonderful World" other than Louis Armstrong. I'm a huge fan and my mom got to talk to him and sat front row to see him play on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City, NJ when she was a teenager. Can you just imagine! I was a trumpet player so that would have been heaven.

Have you ever met anyone famous?

Not really. I'd be more concerned if it was MY house.

Essay question: Why do you think Deathly Hallows will be a BAD book? Please specify all possible guesses, and give your reasoning.

Well - that's not easy as I can't imagine it would possibly be a bad book. I mean I could say it's BAD because it's the last book, which is BAD!

Here's what I can answer - what things would have to happen in DH to make me hate the book?

1. If Dumbledore comes back and saves the day - will hate that.
2. If Snape turns out to be some long-suffering, misunderstood good guy - will HATE that.
3. If every character I love gets gobbled up by Dementors with no chance of moving on to the next world - I will cry my eyes out and may hate JKR for writing it.
4. If Voldemort triumphs, I will feel very betrayed.

If JKR betrays her creation - if she ends up with a series resolution that doesn't respect the lessons learned and characters revealed over the first 6 books - it will be a bad book.

Does that satisfy you as an answer?

Pretty good, but I want to add one more:

If the Avada Kedavraing of Dumlbedore is made out to be a good or courageous deed, I will hate that. You covered the reasoning in your last statement, but I wanted to comment on that situation specifically.

What other book, besides DH, are you planning to read in the near future?

I've got Of Human Bondage lined up... but I might need to read something lighter first.

Do you have any goals?

Fan? I worship her.

I should say that "Wonderful World" by Sam Cooke is actually a completely different song to that sung by Louis Armstrong.

I really should have linked to Youtubings of each to make the difference clear, but better late than never:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_t4Y7Ps7-0
Sam Cooke

Louis Armstrong

So, with added soundtrack, what do you think?

Oh dear, that's quite likely, you know! There's hints all over the place in the book.

I love the Louis Armstrong one.

I'm not too worried in a larger sense. Even if that's how things turn out, I won't hate the whole book, I'll just be disappointed in that one aspect. I can live with that.

I guess if a mother said that, I wouldn't think twice about it. So it's probably a double standard to come down too hard on a father, as long as he's sincere. How the boy feels about it is probably most important. If it embarasses him, then it's probably time to stop.

What's the last thing that really, really scared you?

Really, really scared...

Just scared would be - losing track of one of my kids in a public place. It's only happened a couple of times and it was never for more than 30 seconds but for those 30 seconds... your heart practically stops.

Really, really scared - the last time I can remember being truly terrified was when my Dad was dying. That was 7 years and 2 months ago.

What material possession (NOT person) do you value the most?

Ginger beer. Though it's not easy to get hold of over here, unfortunately.

How much sleep do you generally get of a night?

Too early, I didn't check what time it was, but when the alarm clock went at 8.30 I'd been awake for ages.

Sun hat or baseball cap?

Sunhat. I feel goofy in baseball caps, but everyone makes fun of my sunhat I wear to ballgames. Visors are also good for game watching.

Spring arrived and then disappeared in April for Winter to make a return. Has Spring arrived where you live? Or are you like me and still suffering snow and freezing temperatures?

8:30! 8:30!! 8:30!!! Someone in the world has a alarm clock set for 8:30??? I am SO completely jealous I can't stand it. My older daughter has to be at SCHOOL before 8 o'clock and by 8:30 I'm at work. That just (expletives deleted).

No, we're not freezing, we're just windy and not very warm. But it's weird weather, to be sure.

No.

Why is this thread the only one that's responded to every few minutes? Why can't people talk more on the more important threads, or have "a few things to say"? I don't want to come on "inherently random" to play some silly game all the time.

It's the Easter holidays over here AMC, no school. And I don't have my son to look after at the moment and I spent until 1.30am trying to fix the server and my forums (still broken). Nice weather here, but it's going to change in a few days.

I'm afraid we're just naturally nosy, Foebane. Mind you, I suppose we could chat on about the more interesting questions in the other threads.

I don't know that I've read many foreign language books. I guess I'll have to say Homer's Odyssey because it's the only one I can think of.

No! I'm not even very crafty - I even need to fake my way through helping with my kids' projects - I suggest creative ways to do things that require no skill.

I think this thread is the most active because it takes only a few seconds to respond and the topic changes with every post so you can respond many times a day. There aren't that many of us "here" all day! And those of us who are here are usually multi-tasking.

Do you have any exciting plans for this weekend?

Uhmm, going to bed tonight at 10pm and sleeping till noon tomorrow. How's that for exciting. I'm contemplating going to the mall tonight to return something, but I don't know if I have the energy.

What is your dream job?
