I wanted to add that I love Jamaica too. :cloud9:


I'm having the same problem QoK. Can we pick 131 bands! :bounce: I may use your theory and narrow it down to one or two songs per band to represent more...Too hard to choose! And I thought 131 would be easier! :banghead:


I told you it was harder than 5. :capnjack:

Keep in mind that it is a "soundtrack accompanying your life", not necessarily your favorite songs. In other words, they are songs that mean something to you, that you associate with certain times of your life.

That "soundtrack accompanying your life" that I associate with certain times of my life are my favourite songs. That's one of the reasons it is so hard to do. :-/

It's amazing how those two traits coincide.

Hello, YellowRose. :wave: Another person for Jamaica. :applause: And I love quite a few tracks on The Wall.

Hey Liz,
DH & I love Jamaica! :disco:
We've been 3 times & will definitely go back (but not during hurricane season). :-/

I actually had an out-of-body experience one time while listening to Comfortably Numb.
It may have had something to do with the tequila slammers I was imbibing. :shhh:


3 times! Wow! We've stayed in 3 different places, but not gone 3 different times. Only once. :-/

I notice you didn't list "tequila slammers" on your list of drinks. What are they?


I don't recommend this drink unless you want to wake up with a roaring hangover!
But they're fun so here goes...

Tequila Slammer
Fill a double jigger half full of tequila (I use Sauza Commemorativo)
Top off with cold 7-up
(This next bit takes both hands)...
Place a cork coaster tight on top of the shot glass, invert it, slam it on your knee,
turn it right-side up & suck down the fizz.
Repeat :capnjack:

Oh, did you go to the Pink Floyd shows at Nassau Coliseum and in LA where they performed The Wall too? Those were some of the best live shows I ever saw.

Sadly no. I bet that was something to behold! :cool:
All the concerts I've been to were in either Dallas, Houston or Shreveport, LA.
I've seen some great bands but never had the chance to see Pink Floyd.

Glad to see Jodi Picoult making the list...she was on mine, but couldn't quite make the top 5. She's become quite good; My Sister's Keeper is really a good read.

Hey, all, I just now checked back in on this thread to discover y'all have been diss-ing my livers. :yikes:

Just for that I won't tell you what happens with parsnips... :lol:

Have to run now, I'm at work and I'm busy. Till tomorrow...

I sat straight up in bed early this morning saying: The Lovely Bones! How could I have forgotten a book that stayed with me for such a long time. I couldn't get that book out of my head after reading it.


Does anyone know if Lovely Bones has been optioned for a film? That book stayed with me for a long time too, Carrie.


For those who are interested, The Lovely Bones has been optioned for a film. Peter Jackson is scheduled to direct, and I believe that he and Fran Walsh (his wife and co-writer of the LOTR script) will be adapting the screenplay. I think the movie is scheduled to be released sometime in 2007.

Thanks Carrie for mentioning this book. I had been trying to think of some good novels I had read recently, and I completely forgot about this one! :dunce: I thought it was pretty good. I would say it's definitely worth a read. I'm looking forward to seeing the film. :cool:
