Yes, that little inside joke has always tickled me.

Eight years older! How lucky that from where I'm standing, none of us look any older! ;-) (And that includes Johnny)

:grin: So cool! I always meant to pause it at that bit to read all the book titles there but never have yet, in all the times I've watched the movie.
Thanks, Endora.

Happy 8th Birthday Noodlemantras. Thanks Liza and Dithot for my home away from home. I missed the first 3 years and only jumped onboard in 2006 but that didn’t stop me from going back and reading the books you read before my time and enjoying the archives. Thanks for all the time you spend keeping ONBC going, the noodlmantras for contributing their thoughts, and Johnny for the book lists. :snoopydances:

Ahh, one of the books we have yet to read.

Nice to see you here again, Endora. We've missed you.

:smiliewithhearts: It's been great, I've learned a lot, had memories resurface, connected with you all, and generally had a great time. Am in awe of Liz and DITHOT and all of the labor they put in for us all. Happy Birthday, dear ONBC, and many more :biggrin:

Happy Birthday to the ONBC!
I can't believe we've done 42 book discussions. Wow! And :thankyou: to our moderators, without whom we wouldn't still be going strong.

BTW, one of my other book clubs is reading "A Moveable Feast." Guess where I'm cribbing my discussion questions from . . . :whistle:

:balloons: Happy, happy birthday to ONBC!! :balloons:

From children's stories to quantum physics...and everything in between, it's been a real blast, Liz and DITHOT. Thanks for all your hard work and research on each and every discussion.

Here's to many, many more! :toastingpirates:

:snoopydances:

And many, many thanks to you for putting together a trivia quiz on Secret Window. DITHOT and I were too busy with life this year, and our birthday snuck up on us too quickly (and in the middle of tidbits) for us to put something together as we have in the past. So I'm really glad you did. Noodlemantras go check it out. It's quite fun. I got one wrong. :( Fitting, considering your name, that you would choose to put a quiz together on Secret Window. :mort1:

Here's the link:



And prior to that, Part-time Poet made a jig-saw puzzle in honor of ONBC's birthday. It's a killer. But fun nonetheless.

Johnny is aware of the Noodlemantras and got a big kick out of the name. A classy addition to the Zone. :goodvibes:

Good to know, thanks sleepy! :bounce:

Thanks for the trivia game and puzzle! I have to brag and say I aced the trivia quiz :biggrin: however the puzzle helped me regain my humility! :lol:

fansmom, I'd be interested to hear what your book club has to say about A Moveable Feast.

Want to add my birthday wishes to ONBC :ONBC: . You have certainly peaked my literary brain. What fun it is to share our reads and thanks to Liz an DITHOT for all their work. :birthdayballoon:
