DESYAT NEGRITYAT SPOILERS!


Aside from the fact that it gets the story's message across more clearly, there's another reason why using the book's ending in the Russian adaptation was a good idea: A happy ending for Lombard and Vera in that adaptation would be kind of awkward considering, you know, that little moment of insanity. Just picture it if it ended happily:
Vera: So...we survived. And we, er...
Lombard: Yes, I know.
*awkward silence*
Vera: I like muffins...
THE END

(You'll note that my favourite ice-breaker during an awkward silence is "I like muffins." When in doubt, say you like muffins!)

How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Why is it that a lot of ATTWN fans are Canadian?

Then you should have joined the muffin army a year ago. Too bad none of those forum members are fans of Clue.

I got a new calculator today. Not looking forward to using it in sc*ool, but it's very nice.

If ATTWN were to be re-made, I'd want Evanescence and Within Temptation to do a song for the soundtrack, maybe as the end credits songs.

I wonder if Pizza Hut's quality has gone down or my tastes have evolved. I still prefer it to Domino's or Papa John's.
