  1. She finally found a place where Penny's Uggs are appropriate!!!!😁
  2. The Genius Donation Hypothesis
  3. He played the title role in the 1989-93 series Doogie Howser, M.D., about a teenage genius doing his M.D. residency. He was also Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother.
  4. That's a pretty safe bet, I think. Heck even Melissa used one in The Bronze.
  5. Funny I just recently binge watched my DVDs of the three and a half seasons of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and it's spin-off The Girl from... So did you crush on Illya or Napoleon?
  6. Amazon has them. 😁 https://www.amazon.com/Little-House-Volumes-Set/dp/0064400409 I got my set 30+ years ago though. And yes I've read them. I live about 35 miles from where Laura was born and Little House in the Big Woods was set. The town of Pepin, WI has erected a log cabin in her honor near where Pa Ingall's land was. I was in my mid-teens through early twenties when the series originally aired, our family watched it religiously. It followed the books pretty loosely actually, being set after the family returned from their brief Homesteading on Indian land in Kansas Territory; which is where Little House On the Prairie really took place. On the Banks of Plum Creek took place in Walnut Grove, MN, which is where the TV series is set. The family actually only lived there a few years; while the series had Laura grow to adulthood, meet, and marry Almanzo there. In reality that took place in De Smet, Dakota Territory, where By the Shores of Silver Lake and the last four books are set. Probably more than anyone wanted to know but like Amy I'm pretty fond of the books. BTW there's another tentative connection to TBBT besides Amy. Melissa Gilbert, who played Laura in the series, is Sara Gilbert's half sister.
  7. We keep talking about the kitchen island which got me to thinking about Gilligan's Isle and who the Leonard and Penny characters would correspond to on that show. Leonard would of course be the Professor; but would Penny be Ginger or Mary Ann?
  8. I was thinking Lenny were the Rubbles and Shamy the Flintstones, but it amounts to the same thing. 🤔
  9. That's quite possible of course. My mother's childhood nickname was Blondie as she was nearly platinum as a youngster but was naturally brunette by the time she graduated high school. Not sure that's been established as canon for Penny though. Aside from the roots 'problem', I seem to recall someone (Amy?) asking her if blonde were her natural color and she replying "It is now."
  10. Does that make them a 'better' couple or Marissa a Stepford wife?
  11. Actually the pushing in front of a train was faked by Rose. She really had Charlie trapped in her basement, he escaped and as he was approaching his front door a piano fell on him.
  12. Penny went home for the Holidays at least once and has the canceled ticket in her 'Leonard' box to prove it. Also she had come back from Nebraska in early Feb. (so not quite the Holidays) just in time to give Sheldon the flu and then succumb to it herself, so neither could go to Switzerland for Valentines and to see the Large Hadrian Collider.
  13. Not quit true. Any idea for the show posted here (or as fan fiction) would negate it being used by TPTB for legal reasons. Who knows how much hamstringing we fans have done over the years.
  14. Define young. I was 3 months shy of 50 when TBBT premiered. Being a fan of Kaley from 8 Simple Rules and Johnny from Rosanne I was interested to see them on the same show. Penny's outfits certainly didn't drive me away.
