Six year old me begged my mom to take me to see Jurassic Park. She wisely didn't give in.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

First sweep in a few months, although I've still never had an 8/8. Technically the country one should be a (duct tape)- since I had Jamaica and Jordan after 15 seconds but not Japan yet- but I know I would've gotten it in 30 seconds.

Bummed about picking Chaplin and forgetting Welles on Mon...less concerned about only Japan coming to mind Wed...Perfectly happy about a lucky guess on Fri...
No need to know the Disney villain since I had the Classic Comics version as a kid... :geek:

First 5/5 in a while.

I think I've seen more animated Disney movies than I haven't, but Hunchback falls into the "haven't". I think I got all the others.

I've both seen and read Jurassic Park. I think I read it first, or at least I started reading it before I saw it. I've also played the LEGO video game based on the movies, though I've only seen two of them.

Chaplin on Monday. Could not believe that I forgot about Welles and could not come up with Jordan in 30 seconds.

Read Jurassic Park and saw the first two movies.

Got my sixth 5/5 of the season and my second 8/8!
Instagets M, Tu, & F, with a super-instaget Thursday from just "This 1990 novel."
On Wednesday, Japan and Jamaica came right away but Jordan alluded me until very late in the think music.
I have a nice edition of A Visit from St. Nicholas with C. Clement Moore emblazoned on it.
Not a fan but Mötley Crüe was one of my pre-calls in that category.
Got Frollo more from Victor than Walt.
Both read and seen Jurassic Park.
I would prefer not to.
