Does anyone know what Mayim means by Grok?

Grok is a urban word for "understanding" or "empathy"....but what she means about it in terms of what we are to learn next week?   I have no idea other than we will have "grok" after?

For some reason I saw her IG and got a sinking feeling in my gut. Really hope it doesn't end up being an upsetting episode!

It must be her new word of the month.  She has used it twice and I also had no idea of what it meant.

See Robert Heinlein "Stranger in a Strange Land".  A human baby is raised by Martians and is returned to earth.  Considered rather "hot" due to discussions of sexual topics, it was a huge hit in the 1960's and 1970's.  "Grok" can usually be translated as comprehend or understand.

Star on walk of fame

No, the list for the rest of 2015 and 2016 have been announced and Mayim is not part of them.

They had several stars get honored this year that were not on their list.  So maybe...you never know.

That's a great pic. Would be totally perfect if Johnny and Kaley were also there.

And I guess we'd never know but I don't think Mayim really cares about getting a star, especially since it comes with a 30k fee.

She's not allowed to pay the 30k fee.  Someone else has to pay it.  Tensor could probably tell ya more about it.

The fee is typically paid for by a studio.   In this case since Lifetime is owned by A&E which is owned by Disney...Disney may or may not opt to pay.   They often promote their stars, but not so much on their non-ABC, non-ABCFamily, non-Disney station or non-theatrical folks.  I haven't seen them often promote any of the A&E folks....but they have promoted some of their lifetime shows heavily.  Not so sure on a TV movie for the holidays though.  I really doubt they would pay for a star for Mayim just because she is in one holiday film of theirs.    However, if she has entered into some sort of deal where she will appear in multiple TV movies of theirs, then they might.  I have not heard of any rumors of such a deal though. :girlsigh:

yeah I guess. But at the end of the day, Mayim just doesn't too interested in these Hollywood things. Of course, I'm only assuming this from the articles she sometimes write on Kveller.

I feel like if Mayim gets a star, it might be a posthumous one.

No, but to her spending $40K on a new car (when she bought her Quatro) she felt guilty doing...even though the others all have cars well over $100K each.  LOL!   So I get what Luna was saying above.  Mayim would probably not place the same value, even though I am sure she would be stymied and honored if someone awarded her a WOF star, but she wouldn't think it was worth her (assuming she was even able to, which she is not) expense to buy a star.  Mayim is pretty thrifty and always looking out for the future for her boys.   I think she would rather spend money on charities than on herself that way.  

But, if she was nominated and selected, she would be stunned and humbled.   She really would be surprised.

Yeah I think she'd be surprised and honored. And I'd be happy for her if she got a star but I somehow I'd doubt she'd let other people pay 30k for her. She's really independent after all.

Well if a studio wants to sponsor her, she wouldn't turn it down...she would just be surprised and humbled.  I don't see her refusing it though.  That would be others paying for it...she wouldn't want fans to pay for it, or peers...that I think she would be humbled but also feel a bit guilty about them paying for it.   But she likely still would accept it.

Well I guess we'll never know. Or maybe we will know if she gets a non-posthumous star after all. But there have been people who simply said no like Julia Roberts and George Clooney. Another requirement for a star is for the person honored to actually say or write that they really want one and attend the ceremony. 

I dunno if I come across as if I don't want Mayim to get a star but if so, I must say that I'd be glad to see her get a star. I just don't feel like this is the kind of thing that interests her much so yeah...

I would say that normally I would agree, but she also has stated how she feels bad when she looses at Emmy's.   Some things in that business still mean a lot to stars and I think part of her would get a kick of having her name in the pavement so her boys can take their families some day and say "This is your Grandmother's Star", etc.   I don't know if she would turn it down if the offer presented itself.  I don't think she would "seek" it by any stretch...so I agree there.  But I also know that she does show some signs of things being important to her as an actress and so yes..I do think she would accept and be present for a ceremony if she were offered the opportunity.  It would be a legacy she could leave her family....and that does mean a lot to her. :girlwink:

Yeah, I suppose so. It's a little hard to say since Mayim dislikes extravagance but Chuck Lorre has said that he wants everybody from TBBT to get a star so maybe he'll nominate her someday. I feel like out of the rest of the gang, Mayim and Johnny have the best shot of passing the application process, given their fame since adolescence and Emmy nods.

That's a cute a picture.  Johnny and Mayim have both said the other was their first kiss, and it was in that episode.
