  1. Ugh, footnotes. Also, I'm sorry you're being laid off.
  2. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I had no idea DC had an official fruit, either, but I guessed cherries because of the cherry blossom connection. Just a lucky guess! And I get an asterisk! Sorry Emma and Maya lost, but Claire was just a machine there at the end, and also made a very smart wager for FJ. I think she's the only contestant I remember who stared directly into the camera during her interview, too. Most people look at Alex. I was glad that Maya got Emerson! Alex, please do not attempt to mimic the Wicked Witch of The West ever again. That was worse than his Dracula. The only TS I got tonight were gnu, Christmas, dude ranch, and arrow. I've never watched, um, House of Cards, was it?, but I guessed hit by a bus -- is that close to a subway train? It's all public transit! LOL
  3. The Old Man & the Gun (2018)

    I just got back from seeing this, and I really enjoyed it tremendously! Robert Redford was so, well, happy and polite. :) Although it was very obvious that he/his character had, in fact, ridden a horse before. He just did not act like someone who hadn't. But everyone did a great job, and now I have to go look up the actual true story of Forrest Tucker.
  4. That's why I mostly use quotation marks -- can't do italics easily! Sorry! :)
  5. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Oh, Maya, you should have picked the other one! And Emma, just the last name would have been plenty -- no need to risk coming in 3rd by taking too much time to write your response. But yay Claire! I would honestly be happy with any of these three winning. Claire's hair was clearly pulled back today, with the bow holding it back. Instaget FJ for me, plus I got 1900 and Sarajevo.
  6. Ditto, but OTOH, even if Little Caesar's were my only option for pizza, I might just go without pizza. Besides, I like a good crust!
  7. S1.E7 Thanksgiving at Murray's

    The best bit was the tag with Sid singing, "I like that old time casserole!" I nearly fell off the couch, laughing at that. American cheese melts pretty well, and depending on what other cheeses might have been in the souffle, could be undetectable.
  8. That was an excellent film.
  9. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

  10. What Are We Currently Reading?

    I'm now rereading the original two Pern trilogies as a palate cleanser. I highly recommend those! Michelle Obama's book is on deck.
  11. Small Talk: We'll Be Right Back

    "Crotchfruit." Heh. I once said to two of them, "Didn't your mother teach you to behave any better than that?" not realizing their mother could hear me. She corralled them right quick after that.
  12. The Fantastic Beasts Series

    I just got back, and I'm not sure what to think. It is definitely a middle episode, with lots of exposition and setting things up for the next one(s), and because of that, it seems a bit scattered. There's a lot going on, and a lot to keep up with. I didn't dislike it, and taken as a middle chapter, I might actually like it when I think about it some more. Jude Law was an excellent casting choice for young Dumbledore. His beard probably could have been a skosh longer, given how long it is when we see him first meet Tom Riddle, but perhaps it grows quickly. It is possible that I had very low expectations for Johnny Depp, but I didn't think he was bad, or playing Johnny Depp, and certainly not playing Jack Sparrow. I saw none of Jack Sparrow. He likely could have been better, and Christoph Walz likely would have been a better choice, but Johnny could have been so much worse. I could barely watch the parasite-in-the-eye bit. Anything eye-related like that really squicks me out. I loved loved loved the Chinese dragon/cat! I forget the name of the actual beast, but it was awesome!
  13. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Ah. I don't know the names of any of the players any more. And I'm okay with that! :)
  14. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I must have blocked the Cowboys clue from my brain because I hate them, too! But I have no specific recollection of any clue relating to them. Hm.
  15. I had to hire an assistant last year, and there were at least two who put "familiarity with HIPPA regulations" on their applications! They did not get interviews.
