Friend Makin' Monday: TV, Movies, and Me

Don't forget about my review and giveaway of
David Kessler, MD's The End of Overeating found here.

I got into work today and was told that my personal work line had been ringing off the hook. My boss and two different coworkers had both answered it. Each time the person wouldn't say anything, the people here wouldn't understand what the person on the phone was saying, or the caller would just hang up. After they called about two dozen times in two hours, I wrote down one of the numbers and Googled it. Google said the number was from a cell phone in India. Then a different number called and I Googled it. The site it brought up was in Chinese. Traci (coworker) told me I should call the phone company so I did. It’s a scam. They’re trying to hack our phone system to either make international calls on our phone line or hijack our voice mail system. The guy from the phone company advised us to change our voice mail password. I also told him we don't make any international calls so he blocked outgoing international calls on all of our lines. Then I used my phone line to call another of our lines that doesn't get used... then put them both on hold so they can’t call through on my line anymore. I don’t know how long both lines can be on hold though. So far it's going on about 2.5 hours. Awesome.

I can understand why they'd want to make outgoing international calls on our lines, but I don't understand what hacking into our voice mail would get them. *shrugs*

It is time again for Friend Makin' Monday.  If you have a blog, I would like to invite you to answer the questions as well.  Leave me a comment here, so I know you are playing.  Then you can also leave a comment over at All The Weigh so other folks can check out your answers as well.  It is a fun way to connect to other bloggers.
TV, Movies, and Me
  1. If you could be a recurring star on a show that is currently on TV, which show would you choose? Oh man... I guess some people would expect me to say a show like... Supernatural or Dexter (my two favorites), but I think I would like to be on a comedy... Something more like New Girl or Two Broke Girls... :)
  2. Name the movie that you are most embarrassed to admit that you love. Hmmm... I would probably have to say... just about any cheerleading movie. LOL I love the Bring It On movies... Haha.
  3. Name one show that you’ve never seen and would love to watch.  I honestly don't know. I've watched a lot of TV in my years... Hmmm... I guess I would say the original Dallas. I started watching Dallas when it restarted, but I don't know any of the back story behind it because I didn't watch it when it started all those years ago.
  4. Do you ever go to movies alone?  No. I've never been to the movies alone.
  5. If you could only watch one TV show for the next year, which show would you choose and why? Once again, it would have to be something with a ton of episodes... I'm going to go with the original Dallas here as well. LOL I mean, I'm going to assume that there are a lot of episodes... I just Googled it... 357 episodes... basically an episode a day. I could live with that. :)
  6. If you could star in one reality show, which one would it be and why?  Hmmm... I'm not a huge fan of reality shows, but I guess I would say The Biggest Loser.
  7. If someone rented a billboard for you, what would it say?  "Dream as if you will live forever; live as if you will day today." My favorite quote... 
  8. Who is the most famous person with whom you have been in the same room? Well, I've been in an elevator with DJ Qualls and Rick Worthy. That would be the smallest room... LOL I've been hugged by Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Jim Beaver, Richard Speight Jr, Matt Cohen, and Rick Worthy... I was kissed by Kim Rhodes!!! I've been within a couple of feet of Misha Collins (he technically put his arm around me, but I was too scared to ask for a hug!), James Patrick Stuart, Gabriel Tigerman, Rachel Miner, Emily Perkins... Um... I'm trying to think of all of the people who were at the Supernatural conventions I've been to! LOL
  9. If you were chosen to be a contestant on a TV game show, which show would you want to be on? Let's Make a Deal :) 
  10. If there was a movie being made about you, which actor would you choose to play you? I honestly have no idea... When I was thinner, I got told I looked like Julia Stiles. I don't see it... But right now... looks wise and personality wise, I'd like to say Brooke Elliott...


  1. That's crazy about the international call thing! and super annoying!! Don't worry I can almost quote Bring it On! lol

  2. I want to go to a Supernatural convention! I love how amazing the whole cast is with their fans. Have you ever done GISHWHES?

    1. I did! I participated in 2011. In 2012 I was too busy, but I'm planning on participating this year again. :)

  3. I was an extra on Supernatural once... I mean, that's practically recurring, right (not really at all)? I didn't know they had conventions. Are they just for that show, or part of bigger conventions with multiple shows?

    I tried to watch old Dallas episodes, I couldn't do it. But best of luck to you if you try. I can't believe there are so many episodes.

    1. The ones I went to were both just Supernatural although they do go to Comic Con and other conventions with more shows. I went to Chicago's Supernatural convention. A great company called Creation hosts most of their conventions.

      Here is a list of all of the conventions they host:

  4. i love going to the movies by myself. a lot of people dont. i dont see why, i mean if my husband doesnt want to see it and my friends arent around, why not?


I was getting a lot of spam comments, so I had to turn off anonymous user comments. Sorry! I love reading your comments though!
