When I was an intern, a friend of mine introduced me to IMDb, and the My Movies feature. A few days were spent entering in movies I’ve seen, and today I did some catching up. And, well, I’m a little shocked at how many movies I’ve actually seen….

Inspired by Wendy, who is giving away books when she’s finished with them and is actually the reason I have this book, I’m offering up my copy of Friday Night Knitting Club. To enter, leave me a comment with your guess as to how many movies I’ve seen, along with your email address (alternately, you can send me an email telling me which comment was yours if you’re not comfortable with that). I’ll leave it open until April 6th, the winner being whoever guesses correctly or closest. Multiple close guesses will bring in a handy random number generator to pick the winner.

A few clues:

  • I watch all sorts of movies
  • TV shows I’ve rented on DVD are included
  • The list covers whatever movies I can remember seeing as a kid
  • The number is in the triple digits

Still plugging away on the WIPs I’ve got going and trying very hard to resist breaking the stash diet. It’s going to be a busy week both at work and at home, before a 2 day camping trip at Sequoia! Send warm thoughts, because there might be snow….

    I’m gonna aim high. I know you’ve watched a lot more than I have, so I’m using a complex formula using the number of films on my netflix list and saying:

    728

    I’m guessing 612.

    I hope the camping trip went well.

    And how was the camping trip to Sequoia? Gotta be better than having your in-laws lay siege at your place…
