Love the topic, K.  Do you think we could change "somewhat" to "somehow?"  Seems to fit better, to me.

Done, and good idea.

What great lists, everybody! I love that the different items on them work on so many levels. Like, some would make sense only to those who'd seen the movie or read the story: cowboy boots, rodeos, belt buckles, beans. And some would make sense only to a genuine Brokie: Australia, cherry anything, the New Yorker, pajama bottoms, tattoos. And then some you'd have to be a pretty hardcore Brokie or BetterMostian: Five Leaves, warshrags, striped socks, red-velvet cake, the word Aero.

And then some don't even quite make sense to me!  :laugh: :laugh: Johnny Depp? Newman's Own Thin and Crispy? skateboard? bats? the beach? I'm curious about the origins of some of these, but you can elaborate or not -- your choice!  :) It's just interesting to see such varied lists.

I won't even get into BbM fan fiction and all those references  ;D

I bet that would open up a lot more! But feel free to post some, if you like.

Here are a few more of mine:

Denver and Estes Park
Drinking straight out of the bottle
Blue clothing
Tan clothing
Coffee pots in general, especially Splatterware ones
waitressing
Fried pickles
Thanksgiving
quick quizzes

Yep. You're so right about the different categories!

Johnny Depp because of The Imaginarium.
Bats - as in Batman, as in TDK



The one I didn't get is

*Agentinia* from Meryl.


Oh, oh - I ,might have a lightbulb moment: Argentinia = Gustavo
Is this the connection, Meryl?

Newman´s own thin and chrispy, represent the godfather to jake gyllenhaal, thin and chrispy is a pizza and could also prepresent jake and ennis and when they come together they become this delicious pizza. (last part only in my head)

skateboard- Heath ledger loved to hang with his mate and skateboard and play chess

Thanks for the explanations, you guys!

Skateboard actually made some sense to me because of Heath's wonderful movie The Lords of Dogtown, about the birth of professional skateboarding.

The beach to me = the big wake they had for Heath's death and they all went swimming on that gorgeous beach.
