Week of 1/9 OT Thread: All Replies Must be in French

Okay, the replies don't actually have to be in French. I just wanted to mock the Habs fans, who yet again protested that their coach doesn't know how to speak it yet. Seriously? How about protesting the crappy team you guys have had for 20+ years instead?

Graham is getting back into the swing of classes, so he asked me to fill in for him on the OT thread this morning. I don't know how many talking points I have, but we'll just see where it goes, shall we?

Football playoffs - Anyone cheering for a particular team? Seems like most people are Saints and Broncos fans at this point. I'm impartial, as I don't really care for the sport. But I do have a superbowl party every year. It's easier to plan than Stanley Cup Parties, that's for sure.

Do you guys have any offbeat movies? Since we discussed Equilibrium last week, I thought I'd throw this one out there. I have two that I absolutely love. Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is my comedy of choice. If you grew up playing video games, then you will enjoy this movie. For real. I literally quote this movie at least 3 times a day. For the serious one, it's called "Blindness." It has Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo in it. Basically, it is about blindness that becomes contagious. It follows a man and his wife as they are put into a quarantine building, and essentially left on there own (with about 50 others) trying to survive. Except the wife can actually see -- she lied about being blind just so she wouldn't leave her husband behind. It is by far one of the most intense, thought provoking films I've ever watched. Extremely creative, too. (Also, a ton of nudity, just FYI. Everyone is blind and covered in filth -- it's easier for them to walk around mostly naked instead of cleaning clothes. It's not a film for young ones.)

Does anyone go camping? If so, how do you do it? Do you unload next to your car, and set up shop there? Go hiking? Are you a minimalist? What are your favorite spots?

Anyone read any good books lately? I can never seem to get into any new authors. I've always read Tom Clancy, Dean Koonts, and the other basics (HP, LOTR, etc.).

Now that Christmas is over, I have already seen Easter candy out in stores (not joking). What is your favorite all time holiday candy?
