    Hopefully you are as well. I'm sitting at home being bored. My kids go get whatever me and the wife need.

    Yeah, my work was deemed essential, but our company decided it was best to shut down for 2 weeks (with pay!!!) and take things from there. So, I'll be stuck at home self-isolating and playing computer games to avoid boredom.

    * The first episode of DC Universe’s Harley Quinn, which began streaming last Friday, will air on TBS as part of the cable network’s “DCember,” on Sunday, Dec. 8 at 11 pm.

     

    Watched it Saturday...very funny, really enjoyed it. It does have a lot of violence and swearing, for those who might be offended by such.

    Isn't 'ho' just an American shortening of 'whore' ? In my version of the English language a whore is not necessarily paid, it's just any woman like Penny used to be and never denied it,  plus those women Leonard brought home, including Priya. The word for a man like that - Howard, Raj, and Leonard, for example, is rake, but it's most unfairly not used as often as it should be.  Double standards. The word for someone who's paid is  prostitute, which Penny wasn't, really, although she joked about free drinks and meals and so on. She was Kirk's mistress for six years but we don't know much about her life at that time.

    Six out of the seven of them are all married and faithful now, so their pasts whatever they were are behind them. Other people's sex lives are nobody else's business, true, unless we're seeing them in a sitcom. I don't have friends like that in real life - so far as I know. :)

    I'm going with hokie on this. Enjoying sex with multiple partners does not make one a whore, or ho (whichever term you want to use.) And there is definitely a double standard in how society still views a woman who does this, as compared to a man. And Penny wasn't Kurt's (not Kirk's) mistress, unless you are using the term in a non-standard way. She was his girlfriend and they lived together. To our knowledge, she didn't cheat on him, either.

    Well, I liked it. It's a lot better than I thought it would be. It was fun. And Wiki isn't giving it a very good synopsis. There is much more to it than they are saying. Check out some other reviews before you decide. They don't give enough credit to the two Beatles fans who keep appearing at his concerts and interviews. He is afraid they are angry with him and want to ruin him. They add to his guilt and that adds some tension, as does the manager, who is an interesting villain desperate to make a fortune off of the singer. It's #3 after last weekend and the singing is honestly what surprised me. He's pretty good.

    Love the Beatles, definitely want to check it out.

    Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canuckistanians. :nhl:

    Also a waste was  the Zack plot. They could have made better use of him and also spent time exploring Penny's issues in the time taken up with the sperm donor rubbish.

     

     

     

    I think they could have used that story line as the catalyst for Penny changing her mind about having kids and be the real motive behind her attempted seduction of Leonard.

    And there was no reason to do that except the writers enjoy making her look stupid. They could have just had her say it was a long time ago and no big deal. But they had to go on with it.

    I would have to re-watch, but I don't think Penny didn't read the book because she couldn't understand it, but because she found it boring. Not the same thing.

    If anyone would like to read a terrific fan-fic about Penny and Leonard going to see her parents in Nebraska please read "THE ENGAGEMENT VORTEX" by gsxdoug  It shows Penny's love for her parents and how they embrace Leonard into their family.  It also shows how Leonard figures out a family illness on the farm.  Believe this takes place after they are engaged.  I had an enjoyable time reading this.

    I've read it a couple of times and I completely agree with your analogy.

    I'm blushing over here! 😊
