as in I ain't queer and ain't no reins on this one.

Sorry about the ambrosia - I didn't see Pierre's answer to that question and thank you
for the welcome.

=comment= What's Bobby eating?

First, let me say yippee, Sandy (memento) is back!!!!  Please join me in giving her a rousing welcome to BetterMost, and most importantly, the ABCs of BBM!!!!!!!

I think most folks probably aren't aware there has been an answer to the great "What the hell is Bobby eating" debate, straight from Pierre Tremblay himself, and I figured it would be educational for us all.  Some early CT founders had posed 10 questions to Pierre, one of which was this one.  I posted the text below.

Also, if anyone would like to read all 10 of Pierre's answers, I have them in Word format and would be happy to email them to you.  It's a wonderfully insightful interview and a great read.  They were also posted awhile back on the new Chez Tremblay here at BetterMost, but I haven't scrolled back to find them yet.

QUESTION #9

What the hell was Bobby eating?
 
PIERRE'S RESPONSE:

I heard this might be the most hotly discussed question on the board so I'll be careful to be clear... 
 
Bobby was eating cereal with pieces of fruit in it. I think it was peach but I'm not one hundred percent sure on the fruit.

B is burning

Most of the times Our Boys are together, there is a fire burning.


Can I make a motion to unsticky this thread?

It's fine with me to have it unstickyed - I play it anyway, which is probably true for all of us.  It does seem like it would be fairer to the other games (which I play too), to not have it stickyed.

"C" is camps

Joe Aguirre told Jack and Ennis: "Them camps can be three, four miles from where we pasture the woolies."

=comment= Bobby's cereal
My follow-up question for Pierre would have been: Why was Bobby eating cereal at Thanksgiving?

D is double

Double negatives are used by almost everyone in the film - such as "don't never" and "don't hardly."

"E" is ecstatic

Ennis & Jack's relationship was frequently ecstatic.  Witness their hot 4-year reunion scene in Riverton!  :-*

Ennis told Jack, "Shut up about Alma. This ain't her fault."

Reason (as per Will request to provide one):

It seems more user-friendly to only have the reference/answer threads sticky'd at the top of the games page, rather than any of the actual games. 3 sticky'd threads is a bit much. I went to check on the ABC letters used and accidentally went into the game. While I understand your "shoe and sneaker" simile, Will, not everyone plays the ABCs game. I do but you pm'd me a list of things I was doing wrong and now I'm too scared to play! :) Just joking... kinda.

Just my opinion, y'all. If no one agrees, it's not like I'm gonna be up in a tizzy about it. Just askin'.
