  1. My thoughts are with you and the firefighters. I’m in Calgary Alberta Canada, and we are affected by fires (and/or smoke) every summer. A few years back there was the massive fire in Fort McMurray, which is well north of me but the smoke was everywhere, and it took many months to extinguish. I hope you all get rain (no lightning) soon!
  2. Read both chapters tonight, left you reviews and followed. Really enjoying this and so happy to see a Stuart story that has him as more than a sad sack. Looking forward to reading more.
  3. As much as I love John Lithgow, I think his height makes him a poor choice for Howard’s father.
  4. I looked up the Index and my country, Canada, comes in at number 10. And the first non-European country. Thanks for the info, Lagernisse.
  5. I've watched a couple episodes and had a more mixed reaction to it. Keep in mind I'm raising a high-functioning son with autism, now 15. Though I applaud Atypical for trying to show viewers HFA's (high-functioning autism) thoughts, what it's like in a family with an HFA member, etc. there were too many other things that bothered me. The kid has a job that requires customer service skills? Huh? How'd he pass the interview, or not get overwhelmed (and fired) at that job on a busy Saturday before Christmas? The truth is that employment is a HUGE challenge for folks on the spectrum, even so-called
  6. Really enjoyed this Jonny. Very in character and amusing. Would have liked more conversations about Red Dwarf though! (I'm a huge fan, lol)
  7. Agreed. "No deal" would be asexual, not homosexual.
  8. 23/30, which surprised me as I never studied WWII in school. Most of what I know I learned later in life from everyday conversation, games like Risk and trivial pursuit, watching movies set during WWII and the like. I moved around a lot as a kid, before curriculum was standardized across Canada, so missed learning about the world wars. (Or Greek mythology, or sex Ed...but somehow I managed to pick those up too as an adult. Lol).
  9. Re: cheating. I disagree that genes encode for complex social behaviour like cheating. Ducklings imprinting on the first moving animal? Sure. Human babies rooting for the nipple and instinctively sucking? Sure. Even genes giving us higher libidos, or a desire to mate with multiple partners. But cheating is a different beast. Have the "cheating" gene? Fine--don't marry, don't marry with the promise of fidelity, have a frank discussion with your spouse about opening the marriage, or ending the marriage. Maybe even seek medical assessment if your spouse's libido is exceptionally low to ensu
  10. It might not be a popular answer, or the convention for a sitcom, but I actually hope she doesn't. IMO, Penny never had much of a "career" as an actress; it was more a dream. And dreams don't always come true. I find it makes her a more interesting character to deal with not achieving her acting dream, and struggling to find happiness and fulfillment elsewhere. I would like to see more stories focussed on Penny (and Lenny), though, just not this particular return-to-acting one. Because life, and stories, don't end when you marry and find financial/career success.
  11. Great start! I loved Leonard standing up to his Dad and saying things he's wanted to say for years. Looking forward to more.
  12. That translates into approximately 1 McDonalds for every 22,000 Americans. In Canada, we have approximately 1 Tim Hortons for every 8,000 people. I guess we're pretty fond of our donuts and double doubles here! (For those not fluent in Canuckian, a double double is a coffee or tea with two cream two sugar).
  13. Exactly. Not talking about someone else's sex life in front of said person(s) isn't the same as not discussing your own sex life in front of others. As for how the lunch lady was told? If she mentioned something about birthdays, or an activity she does once a year ("I was away last week as my husband and I were visiting the grandkids, something we do once a year") or any other aspect tangentially related to Shamy's once a year sex, I can see Sheldon replying with a comment about his sex life. He's attempting to better connect with people socially/emotionally, and this would be his attemp
  14. Have you looked into Energy Tapping, or Brain Gym? Both are quick, in the moment, physical movements or touches you can do on yourself to relieve anxiety, focus better, or self calm.
