Life - I Have One!

At least, that's the conclusion of the meme below. I must say I haven't felt like I've had much of a life the last few days thanks to what I now think was food poisoning after eating at a certain chain restaurant on Friday. However, I'm off to work this morning. We'll see how that goes.

And now, on with the meme.

SUPPOSEDLY if you've seen over 89 movies, you have no life. Mark the ones you've seen. There are 266 movies on this list. Copy this list. Then, put x's next to the movies you've seen, add them up, and share your number. Have fun!

I am a little surprised that my total is so low: 59. However, I have seen many of those movies multiple times, and there's tons of movies I've seen that aren't on the list. Still it's nice to know that, at least according to this test, I do have a life after all.


Val said...

Whew, that was close! but apparently I have a life too => 75
A big thumbs-up for Shaun of the Dead (they throw a few F-bombs around but I let Z watch it, & watch it, & watch it...We went out & bought our own copy for our Halloween zombie-movie frightfest!)

FTN said...

I'm just guessing that my number for that meme would be really high (I may have seen more than half of those films), but I still feel like I have a life! I don't watch many TV shows, so I pretend that makes up for it.

Hope you are feeling better.

FTN said...

Okay, I gave in and counted. I think it was something like 171.

Do I win a prize?

I still would argue that TV-watching takes up a LOT more time, because a movie you can watch once (2 hours), while many people watch the same TV shows every week (52 hours per year for each 1-hour show). So by that rationale, we could say that SUPPOSEDLY, if you watch more than two TV shows regularly, you have no life!

We could also say that by arguing against the logic of a blog meme, I'm proving I have no life.

Desmond Jones said...

Well, apparently I have a LOT of a life - only 32 of the films listed (and most of those are the ones I've seen w/ my kids: Shrek, and such like)

But, I have seen many other films not on this list, so I'm sure my real number is much higher. (sigh)

Trueself said...

Val - Glad you have a life too!

FTN - Hmm, what is it they say about those who protest too much?

Des - I think you have too many kids not to have a life. After all, you and Molly obviously haven't spent every evening sitting around watching movies, eh?

Anonymous said...

Wow, FTN totally has me beat on this one. I have to settle for second place.

I hit no life at Hulk, and passed 100 at Star Wars.

Sean of the Dead is a big hit, perfect movie for zombie fans. The list needed more vampire films to go with all those zombie movies.

Trueself said...

SM - I wonder if this list was more geared toward movies men would tend to see, hence the high totals for you and FTN. Then again, maybe you guys just really don't have a life! Don't know.

Bunny said...

77 - I have a life, but just barely . . .

Stinkypaw said...

Well I have no life, what can I say! But in my defense I also have no kids nor cable... I stop counting or even looking at the titles after I hit 90...

You know what? I don't mind at all! The life I don't have I enjoy! ;-)

Trueself said...

Bunny - Congratulations on also having a life!

SP - Life or not, you keep right on enjoying it! I will say that without kids or cable I'd probably have a lot more X's on the list.
