  1. GoT alumni aside, what about Hot Priest/Moriarty/John Parry as her father! Andrew Scott looked to be having fun in the brief snippet I saw. Though it's my understanding that his character is somewhat rehabbed compared to the book.
  2. HBO has been releasing 2 episodes a week so the final 2 will be available Boxing Day.
  3. I'm super excited for our Christmas meals. We'll make tourtiere for Christmas Eve and MC has been dry aging rib roast in the fridge, which we'll have Christmas Day. Also on the menu is creamed kale and smashed potatoes and I'm making a meyer lemon tart.
  4. Very much the same feelings. I honestly won't miss his Superman - YMMV. His role in Tudors was ok, given that it's you know, The Tudors and while his mustache was ridiculous in Mission Impossible he was fairly ok as action spy. I very much enjoyed him in The Witcher and he's particularly charming in the Enola Holmes movies. Again, YMMV.
  5. https://www.instagram.com/p/CmK7eLWJ0as/?igshid=MDM4ZDc5MmU= No Witcher and now no Superman. Oh Henry Cavill.
  6. TFG wasn't much of a debater either. It's the perceived showmanship that matters.
  7. Dude's a hack and it's infuriating every time he's published in the Washington Post, like he's some reasoned voice of Canada.
  8. Rent is way out of control here in DC, and the bordering suburbs. We moved into DC in 2016 after our rent in MoCo was jacked up enough to merit the move. We simply weren't saving $ living a 45 minute subway ride away. There is an insane amount of new buildings going up around our neighborhood and the prices are over $2500K for 400 sq feet. And if you are a car owner you're paying 150-200 for a garage parking spot.
  9. Just caught up on the first two episodes. Having not read the books I've no idea where this is going.
  10. I feel somewhat better about Canada's results now that two semifinalists have come from Group F. A young squad, they squandered chances and made some mistakes but also held their own.
  11. Wasn't a tie in standings settled by fair play points last WC? Yes. Japan knocked out Senegal.
  12. The reports of our death are greatly exaggerated. - Argentina
  13. I didn't tweet often but I didn't fully appreciate how much I used Twitter for information, until I disabled my account the other day. Oh well.
  14. As a child/teenager I had PT 3 times after some serious knee injuries and it did its job. I did not do mine (maintain a regimen of leg strengthening and *oh how I wish I had...) Since 2012 I've gone to PT 4 times: 2012, hip bursitis, exercises and shots 2019, right hand CMC joint arthritis, exercises and a shot in my thumb that is still working. I couldn't open ziplock bags before I went and had no hand strength at all. 2021 spring, right shoulder, required by insurance before granting an MRI, exercises relieved my pain, so no MRI. I couldn't lift my arm most days without pain before going. 2021 late fall, right knee, exercises and a shot - this was a particularly distressing time as the ortho advised that I was going to need knee replacements (*yes, plural), and a hip replacement in my too near for my age of 50 future. Anyways, in all cases ~6-8 weeks of PT 2-3 times a week plus daily exercises at home did what it needed to do. I've gotten pretty slack in the past few months and my right knee has started to hurt again so I'm starting up my exercises again because I don't have the time or interest for formal PT again. All that to say that PT can and does work but it won't fix everything.
  15. I had my first ever facial today. Getting my eyebrows threaded was the main impetus for booking a salon appointment and I figured to make the half hour train ride worth it. I got off to an awkward start when I couldn't figure out how I was supposed to wear the terry wrap that looks like a skirt - I'm having a facial done so what level of undress is needed? After a few questions it was sorted and I was on my way to steamy bliss. Extractions aside (ow) it was super relaxing and enjoyable. My skin is excellent I'm told, though a little dehydrated with some sensitivity and redness. I went home with a reasonably priced calming serum from Skinceuticals. Overall, me likey. I'll look to book another appointment in 8 weeks.
  16. TOMMOOOOOOORRRRROOOOOWWWW! I have made the daring (kinda dumb, actually) decision to read my loan of Nona when it comes up without a reread of her predecessors. Oi.
  17. I binged this while off sick earlier this week. Loved it. During the last episode I yelled at the TV when he slipped up!
  18. JFC. This bullpen sometimes. It was one out...
  19. I don't think Rodriguez got the memo.
