I'll take movies for 150.

Harvey, my semi-retired and only remaining Blog father has tagged me with a movie meme. Since heís semi-retired Iím surprised he actually did a meme, let along tagged me with it. Then again he didnít actually tag me. Sure he did at the end of his post but he didnít send me an e-mail or comment letting me know. I had to stumble across it on my own. Sadly enough looking at this meme, I think Iím going to blow a lot of people out of the water. I love movies and have watched quite a few of them.

SUPPOSEDLY if you've seen over 85 movies, you have no life. Mark the ones you've seen. Copy this list, check the movies you've seen, add them up, and include the number in your post title.

If there was ever any additional proof needed that I donít have a life, or that I really, really, really like movies; this about does it. Iím just glad it didnít ask me to list which of these Iíve owned or the number of times Iíve watched some of these movies. There are some movies on this list that Iíve never heard of, then again Iíve probably watched more unknown movies that most than most people.

So whom am I going to tag with this piece of tripe?
Well Iím going to hit:
Bruce of Back to the Batcave: Dangers of being BlogSpawn.

Virtue of Rantings of an Indentured Servant: See above excuse.

Boudicca of Boudiccaís Voice: Because she spawned me with Harvey and Grau.

OddyBobo of Bobo Blogger: Because I still owe her.

Caltech Girl of Not Exactly Rocket Science: Because after her stint in Jury Duty, this should be easy.

Damn, and I thought my 100 score was good...

I think they are wrong about this 85. There are movies in there from my childhood. If they kept the 85 to a 10 year span... maybe, but I don't think it is that hard for the normal person to hit 85.

Now. To hit 150? Holy crap...

I have it finished, but am posting it tomorrow. Our elections are today. I'm posting on how Palm Beach County doesn't give a crap if people vote...
