Are You a Movie Buff?

Your Movie Buff Quotient: 66%

You are a total movie buff. Classics, blockbusters, indie favorites… you’ve seen most of them.
Your friends know to come to you whenever they need a few good DVD rental suggestions.

I think I’ve taken this one before, but I’m disappointed they only gave me a 66%. Oh well. I know I’m a movie buff.

How Phobic Are You?

You Are 12% Phobic

Wow, you’re scared of very little. And you’re always conquering new fears that come up.
Have you considered a career as a stunt double? You should at least go on one of those crazy reality shows where you eat bugs!

I will not eat bugs for reality TV.

And Another One…..

Here’s another weird dream for you that I had early this morning. This one was more intense, there weren’t any zombies, but real people were after me. I don’t know why. It was a group of about five or six including one woman. They were going to kill me. Someone told me to run and hide so I ran into an old house with lots of little hidden rooms. Meanwhile in reality my radio alarm must’ve gone off, because when I flipped on a light switch in a room in my dream, a Matchbox 20 song came on, and I didn’t know how to turn it off. Hmm…Matchbox 20…Rob Thomas. Okay, it’s all your fault, Rachel, with your “Hump Day Hottie” of the week. Hehe.

I had chosen such a good, secluded hiding place too, but because of that song that I couldn’t turn off, the group found me. The guy who told me to run and hide was part of the group and he just stood there with a smile on his face, shaking his head at me. So they had me trapped, and I looked over and they had the makings of a wooden coffin. In the dream I remembered “Kill Bill Volume 2” and how some guys buried the main character alive. She had to escape through her own resources. Well in the dream I knew I was going to survive somehow, but the thought of being buried alive scared the hell out of me. I knew I had to escape soon.

I did manage to escape the room with the group in it. I don’t know how, someone must not have been paying attention. I ran out and out of the house (and unlike the zombie dream, I could really run this time) and over to the neighbor’s house where I banged on the screen (I don’t know why I didn’t just run in, but that would’ve been rude). A little kid saw me, screamed and ran to tell his mom. Just as someone was going to come to the door, I woke up. My head was almost over the side of my bed and my throat was dry. I think there was a mini dream during the night, but I can’t remember that one now.


It’s the July calendar! Not only is it July, it is also the month of MiniJonB’s birthday. I was informed by our government that we should use the whole month to celebrate his birthday, and that July should be renamed as MiniJonB-uly. Nothing’s carved in stone yet as far as the government is concerned, but I will make it official on my calendar. It’s the patriotic thing to do.

Anyway, thank you again to all of you who provided your fun ideas! You should all have your own official months!
