  1. Can a woman wear a mens watch?

    Me too!
  2. Can a woman wear a mens watch?

    I have tiny tiny wrists but I only wear large "men's" watches. They work for me the way large sunglasses, big rings, and large bracelets work. Someday I'll inherit my Grandfather's Rolex watch currently being used by my Father and I will absolutely be wearing that when its my turn. So go for it if you like the watch and its comfortable.

    Zabzie, So incredibly sorry to hear all you are going through. All my best wishes to you and your children. No experiences to share but in Illinois there is a Lawyers Assistance Program which is pretty great for helping lawyers out in situations like this. It looks like there are some equivalent groups in NY state and city (with similar names). I know you have a team of people you are already speaking with but to the extent you are both lawyers it might be another helpful resource if you haven't already considered it.

    Well that is utterly crappy news. Booooo!
  6. Person of Interest - Only 13 Episodes Left [SPOILERS]

    Now that was an episode.
  7. Person of Interest - Only 13 Episodes Left [SPOILERS]

    Regarding Shaw's episode...things struck me as not real when she was in that drug store, blacked out and then had those solid red hands with no blood anywhere else on her which made no sense. But I think I realized it was a simulation when Reese was shot. Major characters might die in this last season but I couldn't imagine it would be that early. And it reminded me of the last time we saw him *die* on the show. It was interesting to have Elias return. Although I had seen his name listed as appearing in a couple of upcoming episodes I was thinking it was going to be flashbacks. So it was a surprise to find him alive. Wonder what his purpose will be.
  8. Slug 'em back - Drinking Continues!

    Having developed an allergy to alcohol many moons ago I tend to avoid cocktail type places as they make me sad about all the things I can't have. But some friends from out of town were visiting and wanted cocktails so we went to Green River which is a newish cocktail place by the guys who have The Dead Rabbit in NYC. For a person who likes history and stories, the menu of drinks alone was worth the visit as it contained both of those in addition to many lovely ingredients. But then I was in heaven as they made me some mocktails that were so delicious I didn't care that they didn't have alcohol in them and I didn't feel left out of the drinking.

    Just a reminder that we will be flying through this season with a new episode tonight (Monday) and a new episode tomorrow night.
  10. Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance v. 3.0

    MMMmmm, I've got to say I just finished A Court of Mist and Fury and its not at all what I expected. Yes, we did call one aspect of it but it absolutely was not the story I was expecting to read. I was surprised. The beginning of the book was a bit redundant and boring but then it sort of fits with the heroine's own state of mind. Then what we sort of predicted happens but I was disappointed that what I was really looking forward to happening did not end up happening. But somewhere around the middle it all came together and worked for me. As to these books being rapey? Yeah, not at all. There are relationships and sex in them but its consensual. And it doesn't go on for pages on end, in fact there is more flirting and sexual tension in the second book than the actual act. And while these books are marketed and sold as YA, that is the publisher's decision, not the author's. Maas has stated these books were intended for a more mature audience, not YA. Can teenagers read and enjoy then? Absolutely. But these books are not about teenagers. One aspect of Maas's books that seems to enrage some is that the heroine doesn't always stay with the person the reader expects or wants. With YA and romance novels there has been this built in expectation created that the first person the heroine kisses has to be *the one and only* person the heroine will ever kiss and they will be her ONE TRUE LOVE. But that isn't the way the world works. Very few people end up or want to end up with the first person they have a relationship with. People grow and change. What works for you at 20 doesn't necessarily work for you at 25. Maas's books reflect that.

    The POI writers live tweet when the show airs and its fun to see what real life inspiration there are in each episode for various things like the playstations being used to create a supercomputer. This was their inspiration for that: That flashback scene with Harold and the machine was fantastic. I was really sad for it as he pushed the button and it all went away and then when Harold immediately changed his mind but it was too late... Btw, [spoilers] has been added to the thread title so spoil away.
  12. [SPOILERS] The Raven Cycle - The Raven King is out

    Ugh. Hate the bait and switch. Have to process that. (But *sidebar* ME TOO! I preordered and it downloaded earlier in the evening on Monday night. I was so excited! RHYSAND!)
  13. [SPOILERS] The Raven Cycle - The Raven King is out

    ARTEMUS! How did I forget...oh I guess that is because he WAS HARDLY IN THE BOOK! What the hell was up with that?!??! Awesome long slumbering sleepers at last awoken only to hang out in an attic and a tree?!?!?! That was a letdown. And yeah, how did they survive but Glendower died? There was that comment about how maybe Artemus screwed it up but that was about it. So Artemus experimented on Glendower first, screwed up, and then put himself to sleep? And now what are they going to do? And Mr. Grey...where did you go?!?!?! Hmmm not sure about Matthew. I guess my initial impression without rereading and paying more attention is that Gansey died soon enough to prevent his unmaking? And that he is still in DC. At least that is what I am going to choose to believe. Interesting observation. And would explain why I lost interest in this series. I was interested in Gansey and his quest. Ronan and his dreams always felt like interlopers to the story set up by the first book. But the things that seemed instrumental to Glendower and the quest such as Cabeswater turned out to be all around Ronan. Also, what is with the title - The Raven King....its not until about 70% through the book that the phrase is finally used. And he isn't even in it. I can't wait for X-Ray to finish. X-Ray if you are enjoying the first few chapters of the book, I suspect you are going to have a vastly different reaction to this book

    Ha ha! Bear will be facing some competition tonight. Apparently Carrie Preston and Michael Emerson's real life dog, Chumley, will be making an appearance in the episode. Along with Carrie herself. Curious to see if its another flashback with her or if we get to see her in the present. Man after so many years of Michael Emerson being awesome on television with Lost and POI, I hope he gets something new and fabulous soon.
  15. Person of Interest - Only 13 Episodes Left [SPOILERS]

    I am beyond ready for this. I can't believe it's been a whole year since Season 4 ended. I just did a fast tracked rewatch of Season 4 today. Some really phenomenal episodes. I'm curious to see what recurring characters they manage to squeeze into this last season. Is Control gone or is she still lingering in a hole somewhere?
