This or That: June 2003 Archives

Had dinner at James and George's tonight, and Robbo (aka Peter) came over also. Thoroughly pleasant evening, but decided at 11:20 that I had to go home and get some sleep.

Lost another Danio, and I'm missing a Siamensis and a Neon Tetra :(

More TV

| | Comments (0)

1. "The Munsters" or "The Addams Family"?
The Addams Family. I used to think Morticia was so sexy, and I hung out for them to show her and Gomez actually kiss
2. "The Sopranos" or the "Godfather" movies?
Never seen either
3. "The Jetsons" or "Lost in Space"?
Never seen the Jetsons, only saw a few episodes of Lost in Space, including the same episode twice several years apart
4. "Superman" or "Batman" (either the TV shows or the movies)?
Batman, Michael Keaton, 1989
5. "Sex & The City" or "Friends"?
All the characters in Friends annoy the hell out of me. Sex in the City is more interesting, but I've only seen a few episodes

Harry Potter hands down

Never seen King of the Hill

10. Thought-provoking question of the week: You live in a rather dumpy apartment. A friend offers you a chance to be a roommate at a new place s/he is moving into, but they don't allow pets. You have a pet. Do you find your pet a new home and take the new place, or do you keep your pet and stay put?
Depends how attached to the pet I was. I've never had anything other than a budgie or fish, so I can't really say, but I'd probably stick with the pet.
