    PICTIONARY 43: Winter's edition!

    Picture in, want name bolded.
  2. It is very spring like here too. I was invited to go to a board games night by a friend from uni, but now she says everybody cancelled, so boo. On the bright side, I have already managed to get some assignments done (well, to be fair, it was something that I should have finished by last Monday) and handed in my pictionary drawing, so ... I suppose I have a lot of free time in the afternoon. I should go out to enjoy the weather or something. But the countryside around here is so boring.
  3. Yes, that is what I do. But mostly with adults. Children are completely different. SO LOUD. Now I am home and in the middle of writing reports about those two classes.
  4. Was just at a very chaotic lesson with 10-year-olds. Whew, that is ... loud.
  5. Well not bored, but it can be uncomfortable ...
  6. In other news, I am starting my teaching placement thingy tomorrow very early in the morning. I pity those kids, they have to get up so early every day. I forgot how that was, since I mostly work in the afternoons. Anyway, I am going to listen on in two classes tomorrow, one with approximately 12-year-olds and one with approximately 10-year-olds. That should be ... not boring at least, I guess?
  7. *bows* Just let us see the results after you have decided on everything! I very much did not imagine you as somebody who buys people flowers. Happy whatever day, spammers.
  8. Nothing. This narrow hallway has closet doors on both sides, right? I think it would be way too annoying always having to move it left amd right while opening closets on either side. If you want to have an empty shelf to put freshly cleaned and ironed stuff on (I understand that desire!), then my advice would be to clear out one of the shelves in the wardrobes and keep it empty for that purpose. But then again, I would also choose a completely different carpet, so my opinion is moot. Nothing, that space needs to be left empty for the room to breathe. If anything, then the fikusz, but I don't know how your plantkeeping capabilities are. I can only say I have some plants directly over the heating and it does not seem to bother them. What about a full-length mirror? But I see that you have plenty of these in the wardrobe area, so you probably don't need another. This was just my first idea as somebody whose home does not have any full-length mirror at all and is missing one (if I want to see myself whole, I have to climb on the edge of the bathtub). So I would say maybe just a painting? Idk. I don't have a smartass useless opinion on a table or no table here. But we already know my taste in literally everything is completely different to yours, so all my opinions here are useless. I generally like clocks everywhere, however, the one you linked terrifies my sense of aesthetics. /useless post
  9. I mostly spent the evening studying for today's exam. Which turned out to be ridiculously simple. I am fine now, thanks. Yourself?

    How do I buy a mattress?

    https://youtu.be/mIJKuxzWAGs This thread was derailed quickly.
  11. I know, it sometimes works. No chocolate anymore, it is almost 11 PM. Brrrrrrr! It was rather warm-ish here today, but tomorrow it is going to be cold again, especially in the morning. My evening student cancelled today ... again. So I did not have to work till 8.30 PM.
  12. Don't start studying the dey before the exam, kids. Not good. Gods, this is so booooooring.

    Sent mine. Lack of time and lack of inspiration make for a crappy picture. Sorry.
  14. Thanks. It is not that kind of sick. More twice-baked bread and tea kind of sick.
  15. Sick. Having to stay at home.

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend S4 - We Want to Be Here [spoilers]

    I agree with Rhae about Paula. Her actions this episode did really not convey the message that she learned to prioritise her health. I think it is odd that nobody came there are signed her off, even if Dr. Roth was unavailable that morning. And of course that nobody checked in on her when she was absent from the hospital. Is it possible that it comes up at some point in her legal career that she was supposedly in the hospital while she was taking the exam? I know that the show won't continue to show that, but it could be a problem. Also, I wonder if that scene in the fighting song was supposed to be referencing Star Wars. Why not use lightsabers? They even mentioned futuristic weapons!

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend S4 - We Want to Be Here [spoilers]

    Yup, more plot! Very positive episode too. Despite ... all the corpses and contagious squirrel viruses. I totally didn't recognise Josh's sister and brother in law, thanks for pointing that out! I did recognise Ally the grocery store girl and I remembered Jayma when Josh said his sister just had a baby - nice follow up on his family. I thought that was Mindy St. Claire from the Medium Place! Also when Nathaniel said he read all those books on ethical philosophy, I thought he had some lessons with Chidi. Yay for Paula! Slightly disappointed that we did not actually see her taking the exam. Now I hope they make a big scene with a "Maybe This Dream" reprise when she founds out that she passed it with flying colours where her dreams actually come true. Or maybe a scene where Paula tap-dances, because this series is still missing that. And really excited for Rebecca's audition and how the theatre dream turns out. My only problem with the episode was, again, Darryl's plot being completely disconnected from the others. Could they not at least make a short scene where Darryl actually talks to Paula, which is why he came to the hospital? Or meet Rebecca/Heather/Valencia in the waiting room and ask about how Paula is doing? Again, there was no character or interaction to tie Darryl's plotline with the others. On the other hand, I am really happy to see Madison, she is always adorable. Wait ... five weeks till the next episode, you say? What nonsense is this? Greg is only back until Valentine's day, which is what CXG considers the series (of holidays). ETA: Love how Heather always has knowledge of random things ... like how the hospital is structured and all about health insurance this time. Because of her husband.
  18. Happy PreŇ°eren's, spammers.

    Oh, I did not notice that. It is a similar colour, but not a similar cut. Are you only looking at "Picture 1 of 13"? Click on "next" under the picture. There are plenty of them. I cannot figure out a way to see them all on one page.

    I hear the connection, but I did not know that. Thank you for the clarification. I think the last few episodes are getting up there again. The second half of season 3 and the first half of season 4 were the weakest in my opinion. It even looks like they did not know what to do with so many episodes and they made one-episode plots and got guest stars that did not really make sense for the broader story - looking at you, episodes with Tucker, Elaine Boosler, the cemetery guard Patton Oswald, and the cats. The cat episode made sense for Rebecca, but IMO they hyped up the guest stars waaay too much. Maybe I just don't feel the excitement about those actors because I don't know them from eslewhere. I would much rahter see more plots that involved Heather, Trent, Rebecca/Paula friendship, Paula's relationship with her family etc. And the Darryl/Bert argument plot was saved only by the NPH at the Tonys joke, otherwise it was completely nonsensical. And yes, I think I brought this up before too. The group songs just don't cut as deeply into Rebecca's, Paula's, Greg's and whoever else's inner life as the grand solos. They can have interesting choreographies though, of course. I also think they gave way too many songs to guest stars (again, Tucker, Elaine Boosler, the cats). The best songs from this season ... Trapped in a Car, for sure. But also I've Always Never Believed in You (Paula!), I'm Not Sad, The Group Mind Has Decided You're In Love, Noone Else Is Singing My Song, Don't Be a Lawyer. Maybe even Hello, Nice to Meet You and I Hate Everything But You. Child Star is funny and catchy and has cool choreography on its own, but it seems more like a standalone song that Rachel would post on Youtube than something that makes sense in Rebecca's story. It has nothing to do with her.

    Link to spoiler photos from next episode.
  22. New Girl rant (not very spoilery, end of season 2, but just in case you don't want to read my nonsense) This was your daily useless post.

    Trent is maybe still in the hospital from that time he fell off the roof. Or maybe plotting the next shenanigan to get Rebecca to be his girlfriend. Heather is happily living with Hector and managing Home Base. Naomi is in Scarsdale. One of Paula's sons went off to volunteer ... somewhere. The other one is presumably still at home. I hope we get to see that one again, he is funny especially talking to Rebecca. The conversations between the two in the babysitting/soup fairy episode are great. Darryl is obsessing over Hebby and trying to forget that he also has Madison. Don't care about Valencia honestly. I am sure White Josh will come up again, he was never in every episode. He is probably dating that guy from the gym and avoiding his crazy old friend group. Oh, there are still enough episodes for this relationship to fall apart again. I am pretty sure she is not going to end up in a relationship with either Greg (slept with his father , he lives wherever Emory is now, their relationship was a shitshow), Nathaniel (he tried to seduce her while she was engaged, then she seduced him when she was trying to be bad/was spiralling, they had an affair, too many ons and offs to make a stable relationship), or Josh (victim of her stalking, spying, sabotaging etc.). I expect her to end up single too, or maybe the last episode will hint to some completely new character. I hope theater comes into play too, or at least any change of career. I don't think she should be running a small unprofitable business because she is terrible with money and she also seems to spend very little time at her workplace (again).

    Tyler. That's a perfect name for a fake boyfriend. (Speaking of fake boyfriends, where is Trent?) Errrr, I might be dense. What is the obvious reason to call your darkness Ana? The doctor was weird, agree. They both were asses, honestly. Rebecca was pushing him to do something he clearly didn't want, to go to the park and to take rides there. Although, if you go to an amusement park, I don't see the point to not take the rides. Still, she pushed him way too hard. But he was being an ass when he left her. I think he was trying to bring up the problems in a careful way, but then he realised she could not take advice from him in that moment because she was angry with him, and he just left ... that was him being an ass. Oh, that is just Rhae being negative about this show, it is usual. Thr last couple of episodes were better than the first part of the season, I liked all the songs in this one. The hating everything one was really funny with Greg not knowing what to do with the guitar. Also, I think the girl at the taco truck was the writer of the episode! Still wondering what role Debora will play in the show! Some connection to the theme song must appear soon! Also, Greg and Rebecca said they spent the whole two weeks together. I assume at Rebecca's house (where is Greg staying otherwise anyway? His father sold their house and moved somewhere else in season 2 too). Sooo ... what does Josh think about the whole thing? Greg and Josh used to be really good friends, then Greg left and they cut contact, they each know of either's past bagagge with Rebecca ... I cannot imagine any of them being comfortable in the situation where Greg is having sex with Rebecca and Josh is sleeping in the next room. We have not seen them talk to each other, in fact Greg left the high school reunion as soon as he saw Josh being typically Joshy. I wonder what they think of each other now. I miss Heather.
  25. So you are watching a smart show while I am here binging New Girl and wondering why I cannot stop watching this silliness.
