  1. I was working in a school today where they showed the film Hidden Figures to the math classes as part of Black History Month (the history classes got Glory another day) and while I still liked the movie as much today as I did when it came out, I really loved what Jim Parson's did with his role more now than I did then.
  2. Does anyone think the gang would be watching Picard? I do.
  3. . I just saw this. I don't know how I missed it before. They don't have registry offices in the states. They'd have to go to City Hall or to a Justice of the peace or something like that. in California to complete the application for a marriage license each person must bring in a valid photo I.D. (e.g., drivers license, military I.D., passport, or green card, etc.) Marriage licenses are valid for 90 days from the date of issuance. But there is no waiting period or blood test required as in some other states.
  4. I'm a substitute. When teachers go to training, they send one of us to the classroom. Kids do not stay home in my school district while teachers go to training.
  5. I think she was startled. If I ever saw a famous person I'd probably go, "Holy Crap! Is that _____?" even if I knew damned well it was them. Perhaps it was sort of like that.
  6. That reminds me of the wonderful book I gave my grandchildren. It's called The Bird In Santa's Beard and explains why they see different Santas. A bird builds a nest in his beard. When he doesn't want harm to come to the bird he gets people to help him. The illustrations are scrumptious. https://www.amazon.com/Bird-Santas-Beard-Christmas-Forever/dp/B001SARCLQ
  7. Not every time but sometimes. The casting is very good for the most part.
  8. I loved this one. I was so sad that they didn't follow up on it. I think they could have gone farther with it instead of some of the crap we got.
  9. This phone thing was on the news recently but I hadn't seen it before it happened to me. https://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory/liz-weston-sim-swap-criminals-number-66262812
  10. Needless to say I wouldn't use AT&T again if the CEO kissed my ass in the middle of Rt. 65. I had that phone for years and they transferred it to another carrier just because someone asked them to. The new carrier said this was common and suspended the number so that was nice. Just got putting an alert on social security since I don't know what info they were able to extract and I don't want them stealing my tax return.
  11. Apparently it is easier to steal your phone number than to steal your phone.
  12. OMG! If your phone quits working, get on it immediately. Someone bought a cell phone and a SIM card and told AT&T to transfer our number to it and they just went ahead and did it. They took our phone # and started doing all kinds of fraud with it and with our e-mail and when we had it shut down, we had also lost out Internet since they were together. I've spent a week contacting banks and credit bureaus and credit cards (only got one fake one, am hoping they didn't use it before I stopped it) and filed a police report and all kinds of crap. It's been total hell.
  13. This episode, oddly enough, is being hotly debated on The Good Doctor fan boards.The preview they have been airing for the show is about the autistic man on the show, Shaun, and his dying father. In the preview he seems to be being comforted by his friend, Leah, even though the showrunners have spent most of the season with on a plotline about how Shaun and his girlfriend, Carly, need to communicate more about things that matter to them. It is being compared to Penny calming Sheldon down instead of Amy. I guess it just goes to prove there really is not much original out there anymore.
  14. I wasn't the only one to point it out, though. Why is is okay for everyone else, especially Howard and Bernadette, and not okay for Sheldon?
  15. That is one of the things that they played loosely. Sometimes he did and sometimes he didn't. But as has been pointed out many times, they all said mean things to each other.
  16. Mayim was part of the video made for Gary Sinese expressing deep gratitude for the work he and his foundation have done for service members and veterans, first responders, and their families. It is a very cool video and well worth watching. https://countrymusicfamily.com/gary-sinise-blindsided-by-emotional-thank-you-from-tom-hanks-others/?a=DK&var=GaryBlindsided-RELOAD&utm_campaign=garyblindsided&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_term=author-dk-posted_by-dk-repost-fbvhn-reload&utm_content=gary-sinise&fbclid=IwAR1Dy6KrnzRAI20WyaTAIW55Oox7pkxJY8KcRCHPr3mpsg
  17. I had an aunt in Marathon, Florida. She used to call us every year when it was below zero and ask us how we were doing. But she also had to call us almost every year when she was being evacuated from her trailer park for hurricanes.
  18. I get that in December. Should be interesting knowing my family.
  19. We had rain all morning which then turned to snow in NW Indiana for Halloween. I only had about 20 trick or treaters. I gave the ones who did come handfuls of candy for being brave.
  20. I've been baby sitting my grandkids over their fall break...they have the Disney Channel and love the show Jessie. The character named Ravi reminds me so much of Raj it isn't even funny. He's played by an actor named Karan Brar.
  21. I think she should have kept her nose out of it too, so there is no disagreement. I said Penny took it upon herself to interject herself into that situation. Penny was wrong and was often wrong. Which is one of the reasons she annoyed me. She should have stayed out of a lot of situations she pushed her way into.
  22. But Penny is his close, good friend and knows how to calm him down. It's not like Amy didn't care about Sheldon. Penny took it upon herself to handle that. She chose to check on him, just like she chose, after her marriage, to allow him to keep living there. I do not think she should have become his close friend. But that doesn't change the fact that she did. We can say every day for the rest of our lives that certain things should not have been done, but they WERE done and it's time to accept that. It's over and it is what it is.
  23. 12 seasons? Penny became friends with Sheldon sooner than that. She's the one who insisted he could continue to live with her and Leonard after they married. She calmed him down at his infamous birthday party. She hung out with him and fed him Leonard's dinner when she didn't want to watch Leonard doing science. There were a few things Sheldon said that she didn't like and let him know it, but for the most part, through the last few seasons she was Sheldon's friend. If Sheldon wasn't always bothering her i will never understand why people are universally bothered by him.
