Answers

Bren:
Movie - The Big Blue - I was just talking to someone about this recently. I think it had been an option for the nights activities, but was passed over... I'll have to go check it out.
Book - Trinity - I had never heard of it, but the reviews look good, as do the first two pages :)
Music - U2's Unforgettable Fire - I don't actually own it but I think everyone else in my family probably does and so I've heard it quite a bit over the years...great stuff.
Questions:
  1. Can you sum up the Izzie-Pallie conflict in a hundred words or less? Probably not...I'll give it a go.
    Israelites occupied promised land, kicking much ass. Land very much the property of Jews for very long time. Jews flee Israel sometime after Jesus' death (post Roman sack of Jerusalem circa 70AD?). Land conveniently occupied by neighbours, Palestinians. Jews stateless, despised for around 1,850 (?) years before having land returned to them. Palestinians cry foul, claiming Jews illegally occupying land that previously belonged to Jews. Jews with state, despised for around 60 years. Palestinians still don't accept Israel there to stay...probably because neighbouring countries and Western (European) liberals continue to give them the idea that Israel is a false state. (100 words - damn, hard first qs....)
  2. When you leave Australia what is the first country you will visit?
    Well, that will be the US. I leave Boxing Day (tomorrow!) to be a groomsman in a wedding for a friend from the church I attended when living in the US.
  3. If that country is Israel, can you bring a bottle of Church Block with you?
    Sorry. But on the bright side (for me), I'll keep that in mind!


Jamie:
Movie - Monty Python's Life of Brian - haha. "What did the Romans ever do for us, eh?" "Roads?" "Well, apart from that." "Oh I know. Sanitation!" "Security!" ahhhh, funny stuff.
Book - anything by Douglas Adams or Larry Niven - It's been so long I can't remember what I've read of Adams apart from Hitchhikers guide... I'll have to rectify that. And I've never read any Larry Niven, but skimming through some of the stuff at Amazon, he looks pretty good, so I'll have to get on to that. Thanks Jamie!
Questions:
BLOODY HELL. I can't do it again. This is the last spot I had saved as a draft. I was almost done with both Jamie and Aimee's questions, with only Suzanne to go, when my stinkin' laptop crashed. Screw it. It's 2.40am Christmas day. I may or may not have time to re-write those answers before I fly to the US on Sunday afternoon. More likely not.
