  1. I got a SHEDDER!!! Never thought I'd get excited about office stuff!!!
  2. I saw The Wolfman this past weekend, and I am not so sure about it. I think I actually like the old one better. I did like the gore in the new one, but it took forever to see it (the gore). I guess I was expecting more. And there is something about B&W movies that really gets me..especially Horror movies. Night of the Living Dead (1968) still freaks me out-so much that I either have to watch it in the daytime, or have every light on in my house. Then I bought Zombieland--I laughed so hard I thought I was going to pee. I thought the entire part with Bill Murray was hilarious. Right now I'm just waiting for the new Nightmare on Elm Street to come out...and I guess they're re-do-ing Hellraiser..AND they are re-making Halloween 3-it's not going to be like "The Season of the Witch," it's supposedly going to be a continuation of the Michael Myers saga..at least I hope so!
  3. I never felt safe on carnival rides...but also, the rollercoaster at Santa's Village in Dundee, Illinois..it feels like you're going to fall from the seat..not a fun ride.
  4. Big Mike!! Thanks for the Christmas photo/card!! Sorry I'm late getting the "thank you," out to ya..Nice to hear from you!
  5. UGH!!! I know what you mean...tonight we're getting snow that isn't going to stop until Thursday midday--well I have to work all this week..so now I'm thinking that unless I stay in town (motel) that I won't make it to work at all this week..they're calling for an icy mix from Wednesday through Thursday..and of course the days that I'm off, it does nothing!!!! Weather man just said Blizzard Warning--freezing rain--yippie!
  6. I live in Potosi, Wisconsin..I live 2.3 miles from the Mississippi River..it's a beautiful area and right now we're waiting for about 3.5 inches of snow and by midnight Wednesday we'll be snowbound!!
  7. I agree with everyone's pet peeves--here's one more..People who chew tobacco and then spit it out in line or where ever..majorly gross!
  8. Yikes! The Beast isn't that great?? I've never been on it..I wanted to go out there this summer..is it worth it??
  9. Well.. I live about an hour from the Dells...so--I have to ride Avalanche again next summer. But I'm also planning a trip to Ohio. I really want to re-visit the Columbus Zoo and ride the Sea Dragon. That was the first rollercoaster that I ever rode. Then I was thinking about heading down to Kings Island and going on the Beast (I've never gone..glup ).
  10. I had a coffee with William Wegman when I was in college-we talked for about a half hour. Met John Taylor from Duran Duran about 11 years ago..would love to see him again!!
  11. I work in a nursing home passing out medications. My boss told me to come in early this morning, so instead of going in at my usual time of 9am, I was there at 7am..only to find out there was nothing for me to do! So instead of passing pills, they made me do treatments..which totally sucked because I've never been trained to do that!! They keep throwing me into jobs around the nursing home that I don't know how to do..THEN, criticize me when I can't do it. I tried to explain to them that I don't want to do a treatment that could hurt someone or do it incorrectly and make something worse. They just don't get it. Last week I tried to get into work after that hellish snow storm we had...well, long story short, I achieved getting my car in the ditch and had to call in..I live about 25 minutes (on a good day-dry pavement) from where I work. Not asking how I was, the D.O.N starts bitching me out saying "You choose where you live, you choose what you drive." I was so pissed that I'm sure my veins were popping out of my forehead!
  12. If money was no object, what kind of thrill ride and/or rollercoaster would you create? I think I would make a duel wooden coaster that would run underground. (well..mostly underground or in the dark) Something simular to the Viper. I would want minimal hesitation and each coaster would have only one train. Would be cool to have the trains run backwards. It also would be pretty cool having a rollercoaster that went through a Haunted House/Fun House. I'd have one of those rotating tunnel things--have the coaster zip through it. Just a question I've been wondering about..thought I'd ask it. ADMIN EDIT: I have merged your original thread with our existing Rumors/Ideas thread. Please remember to do a search in the future to ensure that you aren't creating a shadow thread for a topic already in discussion on another thread.
  13. The last time I was at this park was 25 years ago..It was called "Zoo Park." The "Sea Dragon" was called "Jet Flyer." This was the very first rollercoaster I ever rode..I think I was 6 years old. I really want to go back and see this place again!
  14. I think it would have to be the Avalanche (it's now Hellcat--but it will always be Avalanche to me) in the Wisconsin Dells. Everyone who comes to town is ripping and roaring about Mt. Olympus and they seem to forget Timber Falls across town. Yes, there's only one train, BUT I swear it's the fastest rollercoaster in town. The line is never too long-I rode it last summer 15 times in a row. I don't think the Avalanche gets the hype it deserves. Awesome, awesome ride!!!
  15. Going to Great America and being sick to begin with. We had season passes and it was the last day of the season, so we wanted to use them one last time. Unfortuantely I had that 24 hour flu--even the carousel made me puke!
  16. I was looking for videos on UTube and I saw your Avalanche video. I love it because it makes me laugh everytime I watch it. Love the line "I'm really afraid of this ride."
  17. I think the top of my list would have to be Iron Wolf at Six Flags Great America in Illinois. Whenever I go, Iron Wolf is the ride I pass up--I always bang my head around on that ride and one of the worst things to have at an amusement park is a whooper of a headache!!
  18. I'm a laugher--I usually don't stop laughing until I'm getting off the ride..
