  1. S37.E03 I Am Goliath Strong

    You know, and without saying she's the greatest player to ever play, these are some characteristics of some very successful past Survivor players. Some even got asked back 4 times because of these attributes. And went on to win.
  2. S03.E03 Katie Girls

    Between the first season and now, this show has become increasingly more and more snarkworthy. It's fun to watch for the snark, but it's like its DNA had been radically modified. It feels like the show runners don't understand the difference between emotions and sadness, and it's become such a pathos, with characters like Randal and Kate becoming unlikeable to the highest degree, rather than touching.
  3. S37.E03 I Am Goliath Strong

    Hey, I'm ok with Natalie staying, and I smiled when she described herself as a senior citizen, because to me it's obvious that she doesn't see herself as such, but for once she read the room and realised that her tribemates WOULD consider her a senior citizen once they knew her age. I'm surprised by how much I like John (the wrestler), he's quite refreshing, and the crab race was fun. I've just discovered that there is someone on the Goliath tribe that looks very much like D'Arcy Carden (Janet on The Good Place). Lastly, while it was not the most amazing episode, I'm glad that it entertained me enough to make me forget for a few minutes at a time this sharp back pain that's been plaguing me all day.

    Chiming in late on the book story, as the baby isn't born yet, I'd go with one of these books that have movable elements together with a story. I wish I could remember what I got, but the one with opposite color ladybugs, turtles, etc., that you could even take in the bath, was a huge success for many years.
  5. Kate: Chrissy Metz

    I think the show runners initially had this idea of, how wonderful would it be to start with a huge actress, and then have her lose weight!? When that didn't happen, they got stuck on Kate/weight. It's like they have tunnel vision and don't know how to write her as a fully defined character who happens to be overweight, and only see the weight as her defining character.

    It must happen. There's such a big contrast between him and his one billion company, and the people who work for it and still need assistance for rent and food, while working in horrific situations (as in can't take toilet break). The hell! So that's why he definitely must be undercover boss.
  7. S37.E02 The Chicken Has Flown the Coop

    I think the weather combo of angry nights and pleasant days must have pleased the sadistic TPTB to no end. I've always liked the unexpected alliances, and I like that this season contestants are actively trying to make unlikely alliances.

    I very, very, very much want Jeff Bezos to go undercover and work in an Amazon warehouse.
  9. A Star is Born (2018)

    Haven't seen all of them either, but was just reading this article that compared them and I found it interesting (some people might find it slightly spoiler-isn for the 2018 version - I usually hate spoilers and didn't mind, for what it's worth): https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/sep/28/female-success-and-male-decline-what-a-star-is-born-tells-us-about-fame-fear-and-feminism The title is a bit misleading. I found the background of the previous movies to be a very good read.

    @DeLurker, it's horrible that reversing such a mistake made by a bank is such a complicated and lengthy process. Here's hoping it will be fixed shortly.
  11. I do find the relationship icky, but then again there are many other relationships that I find icky. What bothers me the most in that story is how (now) Soon-Yi and (way back) Moses' are being disregarded, or rather don't get as much follow up. I'm uncomfortable that adopted kids' recollections that are not flattering to Mia Farrow are not given very much press. Especially as, being teenagers, they would have had maybe a better perception of the home dynamics. 26 years ago, Dylan was 7 (and whatever happened to that little girl, whatever it was, is harrowing, whether she was molested or brainwashed, one of her parents destroyed a part of her). Ronan was 4, so his view is most probably based on what he gathered after the fact. Moses was 14, and has also had insightful things to say about how he remembered that time (not what he learned after the fact) including that he had been instructed by his mom to keep an eye on Allen at all times, and why that is never given credence baffles me. This article is not bad https://www.refinery29.com/2018/05/200112/moses-farrow-woody-allen-defense-mia-farrow-accusations-blog-post in that it links to other sources for more details. And Soon-Yi was 21. Moses is a family therapist. Does not appear to be a fame whore. Was adopted, abused, then became estranged from adoptee mother. Made a life for himself. Looking for more bio details, which are very scarce, I came upon this article which in the vein of what I feel too: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/may/24/farrow-family-truth-trauma-mia-dylan-moses-woody-allen

    Yes, so... does that mean cat leaving super lovely, furry, spot to follow human to the bathroom mean: 1. cat loves human and cannot be apart 2. cat doesn't trust human and need to keep a eye in human when human is not is usual spot - like human in bed, sleeping; or human in the kitchen, before or after feeding cat 3. Well, I can't see another reason and just asking the question brought me to yes, 2, so from now on, when I have non human visitor and don't close the door, I'll look my cat in the eye, blink and think "I KNOW WHY YOU'RE HERE"
  13. Damn, sorry about that. That it reminds me of a nightmarish aunt of mine will be no help, but may let you know I hear what you're saying, in part, because of course each situation is unique. Just do what feels right for you, and let the rest go, it's not worth it for you to get worked up. Let it go, just do it :) I'm not being flippant. Some years ago, I was worrying a lot about my mom's choices, and it took someone to tell me "let it go" for me to really let go, and trust her to do her thing, and stop worrying about it. Her path has turned unfortunate, but somehow since I had let it go, I feel no anxiety, I help her when she asks for it, but otherwise I'm just reminding myself that she's a grown woman who should choose for herself. I'm here for her if/when she needs me, but otherwise my life is basically focused on me, and people close to me.

    Why do cats feel the urge to follow us to the bathroom? Seriously? I know why they like their water far from their food. I know they get weird around catnip. But what about our bathroom breaks, when they are so private about theirs?
  15. Maybe she never check her emails? I'd say call her to make sure she has seen them.
