  1. "The View" Week Of 6/18/2018

    Because it's summer. concise analysis? What is that you speak of? Maybe when Rosie was on; but for quite a few years, the shows have been live five days a week. I suspect that Fridays have been recorded because the television season is over.
  2. Season 12: Good Riddance Lewin!

    Branch/Thompson will always be Foghorn Leghorn for me.
  3. The Royals and Company: The Cast Thread

    I just realized who Matt Smith reminds me of: he's like a very skinny Gordon Ramsay! It was bugging me who he reminded me of, and no, I didn't watch Dr. Who, or anything else he was in, so there's that. It's the nose, I think. And thank you, @dubbel zout--for mentioning where I'd seen the actor who plays Lascelles! EVUHL Uncle Warleggan, indeed! How is it that I despise him so much on Poldark, but love and adore him on this show? Do you know if he'll be returning this season?
  4. So, do the people (waitstaff, cooks, etc.) that were featured in the New Orleans show, work all shifts? I mean, don't they have a morning, swing, night shift crew? So they all work nearly 12-16 hours a day?
  5. Why would you want something so awful to happen to her? Ditto. I loved how Taggert's contempt for Mooby never changed or abated. And he wasn't just a cardboard character, either. I still remember how gentle he was with Liz after her rape.
  6. Gordon Ramsay: Damn!

    Kitchen Nightmares Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours to Hell and Back now has its own forum!
  7. Season 12: Good Riddance Lewin!

    This should probably go in the season 11 thread, when Nora first joined, but I'm putting it here-If it should be moved to 11, let me know @radishcake and I'll edit it. So, even before he turned into Nosferatu, I HATED how Nora sucked up to Giuliani when he played himself after Nora took over for Adam. She was practically squeeing like a fangirl, her smile was so...she looked so...mesmerized. BLECH.
  8. Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    I still love the show; and one of the greatest things about it is, none of them needed no stinkin' man to save them. They saved themselves out of sticky situations. I may cringe over the B-movie style screaming, or roll my eyes in certain episodes where Kelly is being manhandled and she doesn't flip them over like she's shown to do in the opening credits, and is made to look like the weak female, but more often, she's shown to use those skills and save herself and her friends/other victims.
  9. S03.E23: Battles Lost and Won 2018.06.18

    Man, I hope not. Even when Smallville did their take, Kal wasn't really bad; he was just an unfeeling, unemotional empty shell, who was spouting the words of that show's version of Jor-El, who until the series finale, was a raging asshole. And hasn't this show stolen used enough of Clark/Supes' stories for Kara/Supergirl? There has to be a lot of stories to mine from just Supergirl--she's been around a long time.

    I LOOOOOVED Hecht's! I don't understand why Macys couldn't have KEPT the inventory of Hecht's when they bought it out! The good thing about Macy's PRIOR to this, was when they had a sale, it was a GOOD sale; and sorry, but a lot of the clothes Hecht's carried, were BETTER. Most of my clothes I got from there were chic! Classic! Fun! There was a lot of variety. Not so much wth Macys. But noooooo . Gotta put their stamp on everyfrickin ' thing! That would be LOGICAL. And providing customer service. Being professional. Oh, I will definitely be giving them a call. I have to get this project done first.

    Tow truck. Or however tow trucks do it like when your car is repossessed? I had that happen once, about 8 years ago, because one of my car payments didn't go through, and I didn't know, and Honda Finance didn't tell me, and so, in the middle of the night, they took my car. What's worse is that at the time, that morning I discovered my car gone? I was scheduled for outpatient surgery (Novasure) due to my PCOS. So I walked the mile and a half to my doctor's office but took a cab home. Then made calls to find out what happened. I'm really not into astrology, just the most superficial, but more and more, I'm believing it, because my maternal grandpa (God Rest his Soul), did believe in it and looked up all of his grandchildren's charts, if you will and told my mom that I would have a difficult life. All I can say is, with all of my medical issues since I was a kid? And job issues over the past decade? Fate really is a BITCH, and I'm so weary of fighting. That's the kicker. I live in a highrise, so there's no way PEPCO or maintenance would KNOW who the car owner is. They'd have to boot up the office computer and look it up by the permit number and the office was closed when the outage happened. Regardless of them feeling the need to move my car. What I find inconceivable is that they didn't move the cars BACK. I'll be talking with the manager (who is great and really was wonderful about not charging me for maintenance requests for things I could do myself when I was undergoing chemo, and post-reconstruction surgery, among other things), who knows me by face and name, as well as the assistant manager. And a couple of the staff. I make it a point to get to know them. I guess it's the former sales associate (Sears, Woodies, Hecht's, Barnes & Noble, Crown Books) and teller in me: as the former and latter, I always made sure to get to know my customers. Many whom were surprised at how quickly I knew them by name. But this is all on PEPCO. The assholes. Sorry, I can't say that enough.

    This isn’t necessarily a peeve but more of a venting and it’s more appropriate here, I think. I got so stressed over what I thought had happened and I was at my wits’ end because I don’t live in a small town where I can just walk to the market for groceries and what not. What happened was that there was a partial power outage in just My building and the one behind me on Monday night. I had power-all my lights were working as did my television and Internet. What stopped working was the AC (and it was 90-degree weather even at 7 pm) and my fridge lost power. No word on the cause except for “supply failure.” I was concerned about the groceries/food spoiling because I just bought them two days before. I have renters insurance, so money really wasn’t the issue. So as the temperature in my apartment reached 78, naturally I couldn’t sleep. I think I dozed after 2:30. The AC kicked in shortly after. So come Tuesday morning and I walk out and the slot where my car is supposed to be is EMPTY. My first thought was: did they fucking tow my car again? After-hours answering service didn’t have the information so I walked to the train and work. Called the leasing office and learned that nope; my car wasn’t towed. And I’m freaking out: Someone fucking stole my car! It’s not worth shit and I can’t afford to buy a new one just yet. So then I’m calling the police, filing a report, then my insurance. My stress level is through the roof. I have a wedding to go to next weekend in NJ. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to rent a car. Insurance will pay $50 a day for two weeks only. My concentration is shot, but I dig down and do the work because life and there’s nothing I can do. Late afternoon I email my leasing manager and the assistant manager and ask about parking-like can I get a temporary decal so I can park in the resident parking? But because I’m anal, could I have the name of the towing company they use? Maybe they towed my car by mistake? Because my car has an alarm-an obnoxious loud alarm that sounds like a police siren-NO WAY would I not have heard it if it had gone off. I followed up with a phone call and guess what the manager told me? When PEPCO (those FUCKING BASTARDS!!🤬🤬) were working on fixing the problem Monday night-they had maintenance “RELOCATE” some of the cars in front of my building! They didn’t BOTHER to put them BACK! They didn’t think What those residents who couldn’t find their cars would think the next morning. Manager meant to call me earlier but she was swamped and she wasn’t made aware of what they’d done. So I called insurance and canceled my claim; called the cops to do the same, but they can’t do that. They would have to come to my place and confirm the car wasn’t stolen. Fine, I got that. So I walked from the train again and normally I wouldn’t mind-but it was humid and hot. And I didn’t have the proper shoes. The ONLY thing that sort of makes up for this FUCK UP, is that the cops who came to confirm, didn’t make me come down because they saw the car for themselves and came to my door, AND that they were cute and hawt. Yes, I’m shallow-one cop was cute; his partner, hawt. That made up for a little bit, but not all. I’m still so PISSED. Lazy assholes. Sorry for the very long post, but I had to get this out.

    Let me guess: she, the twat of the pursed and twitching lips that looks like she just sucked on the sourest of lemons, either double downed and denied she did any such thing, or threw out a cavalier, insincere, back-handed apology, to make it appear it was Sunny's fault for confusing the poor widdle dear.
