I thought WingNut13 was really 13 years old and full time student, I thought he/she was underage. But then again I could be wrong.

But in any case... "Let´s grab all of us a glass of wine and says...TO ALEXANDER the great!" Yumm... Wink

Oh, I see. I didn't think about the 13 standing for an age but apparently a lot of people must do that, meaning put their age in their name. Someone once thought I was 15 because of my screen name but really I'm 40!

Anyway, tis morning and a glass of wine is not very appealing at this moment; I shall have to wait until tonight to salute Alexander again.

Ooooh, Adriv, I could kiss ya! Honey, I haven't seen 13 in - well, let's just say that when I was 13, I wanted to be Mrs. Shaun Cassidy! Razz

I am indeed a full time student, but it's not indicative of my age (like Cindoo, I'm 40). I'm at seminary; most of us are around 35 and up. My screen name comes from my love of hockey; I'm a Detroit native, a Red Wings fan and #13 is my favorite player.

I saw the film for the second time last night and enjoyed it even more. I work at a museum of Middle Eastern art part time; I find it very telling that every member of the staff (well educated, all) really enjoyed the film.

The general public in the USA is not only disinterested in history, we're easily bored. I think that's the real reason "Alexander" was panned, but who cares what shallow critics say? It was a fine film (not without many flaws; all of them due, I believe, to poor film editing and questionable direction) and I enjoyed it more last night Cool
