The office dawg here is an enormous Irish wolfhound and we can not leave food unattended. He will snatch whole sandwiches when you're not looking.

Well, it sounds like Agents 777 won't get dusty, at least.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

and their house is haunted, for sure
  12:10pm Eric Kilkenny:

Agent 777 is kinda this rare one only 400 it's a casino/gambling theme but the game itself is pretty fun I get pretty into it
  12:10pm Eric Kilkenny:

@fab he's an artist/performer/musician does lots of stuff
Avatar 1:04pm solo mon:

Mr fab- he has listened to wfmu, he has been played on wfmu a lot tho, he was in gravy train, hunx, etc.

Avatar 1:25pm solo mon:

Haha krys o :-) if I was chesty I would be taking big breaths as well. But omg what if you could smother someone with your breath?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Franco Twinkie:

I got the impression that someone told her she could do the circuit like John Waters. Apparently not! Different temperament, not a goofball.
Avatar 1:27pm solo mon:

I love when Doris does a bad review of Titanic, and she complains about the special effects and editing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Franco Twinkie:

When I think back about going to see her, I'm still mystified how something could go so wrong.
Avatar 1:29pm solo mon:

One of my favorite things about Doris is how she over dubs every woman in her films with her own voice. They all sound like an old Jewish woman from New York.
Avatar 1:30pm solo mon:

I wonder what Doris would think about Criterion releasing “Bad Girls Go To Hell” ??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Franco Twinkie:

Total ingratitude I'm sure.
