  1. Lost is getting a bit weird, but some character journeys are so relatable and close to my heart that I don’t mind the plot problems and the general issues with the development of the story. At this point I just want to hug half the characters and rock them in my arms till they feel better. Sayid, Hurley, Locke, Sawyer, Jack in this particular order. And I want Eko to hug me and rock me till I feel better. He was probably my most favorite character of season 2.
  2. @Toth best of luck with that application! Get out, walk away and don’t look back. Not sure why I’m falling apart today, but I’m falling apart today. This is one of those days when I would knock on my neighbor’s door with a bottle of booze and sleep with him - if I were in a Netflix show. But I’m not in a Netflix show - sadly. I asked some friends to drink with me this weekend as the next best thing. In fact I know perfectly well why I’m falling apart I just don’t know how to react and proceed so I’m standing in one place and falling apart. I will try to journal this out which may help how I feel about it, but it sure won’t help with the reality and facts of my problems. And I’m even procrastinating work. I did a load of laundry, I sorted some clothes for donation, I had lunch, I made tea, I watched YouTube, I picked a new hairstyle on Pinterest, I worked on my needlepoint stitching project, I journaled half my problem, I’m posting here and then I’m going to clean my makeup brushes. maybe it would solve a lot of my problems if I acted more like I’m in a Netflix show.
  3. I don’t drink a lot or very often, but when I do, it’s a shot of rum in my tea at 11:30am on a Monday. And that’s how you ignore life problems rather than jump in headfirst and tackle them. Cheers.
  4. Not 1 g but different proportions do screw up baking. Looking at it the wrong way screws up baking. Or fine, let’s admit it, I’m a shit baker Anyway, I’m physically incapable of admitting defeat so I bought more ginger to have another more educated go at this.
  5. I have a couple issues with Lost at this point. But when Sawyer tells Jack what a golden moment.
  6. Didn’t we use to have a baking thread or something along the lines? I’m just dumping my baking failure here. Well… I tried to make candied ginger today because it’s an ingredient in the pie I want to make. Yes I cut the slices too thick, yes overheated the leftover syrup so it became hard candy rather than syrup, no I wasn’t patient enough to wait for it dry to properly before coating it in sugar. Seriously… It absorbed the sugar then it started to sweat it off, the thing wouldn’t dry out for its life. Then again, I threw it out after 4 hours and probably should have waited at least overnight. Stupid bloody ginger… I might go to the mall tomorrow and see if there’s a store bought version available, but honestly, I won’t be mad if there isn’t, because I always make pies entirely from scratch and that’s how I like it. Anyway, I need to sleep on this highly traumatic experience and decide if I even want candied ginger in my pie after all. I could just do a spice mix… stupid ginger. I’m upset.
  7. Hi!!!!!! So nice to see you around and lovely to read your news! I do feel like I’m missing a link or two, did you move to Texas recently? To be closer to family or some other reason? Anyway, I’m glad that the grandkids and your daughter make up for not loving the place itself. And Alex is… is he at college in Texas?That’s a vague memory I have from a previous update of yours but I might be wrong or he might have graduated already and hence the move down. I feel you about the workload imbalance. Tends to be the same in my field as well, there’s barely anything to fill day in summer and in January-February, while spring and autumn is a madhouse. Any special plans in the upcoming months? I don’t know how old the grandkids are, do they still do Halloween?
  8. Oh shit, I just remembered this game and thought the deadline was today. Phew. Okay. Getting it done over the weekend.
  9. they 100% did. This is apparent from every still, teaser, trailer and clip I have seen in the past several months. The costumes look ghastly.
  10. This is actually a real storyline that’s actually in the show for real?
  11. I KNOW RIGHT?!?!?! again, very much agree. Dragons at this point are a random checkbox to throw into every episode for a random minute. They aren’t tradition, they aren’t a status symbol, they aren’t pets, they aren’t a mean of traveling. Doesn’t make any sense and doesn’t enrich the world in any way.
  12. More Lost. I really enjoyed Hurley’s backstory about his body image and relationship to food and the time in psychiatric care. It was done with consciousness and courage, they approached the subject with firm loving care. Lovely stuff. The Lock storyline… it’s the kind of good writing, when you know things couldn’t happen any other way than they way the do, yet it’s painful to watch. I have a lot of respect for Helen and sympathy for Locke. But I really want the captive plot line to wrap up, it’s just tedious at this point. I really don’t like this style of unreliable narration, it feels like a deliberate dragging of the story to fill time.
  13. Honestly I don’t have a lot of memories about seasons 3-4, maybe it was a bit flat. I just know things started going downhill during season 5. Let me know how you like it if you keep watching!
  14. Huh, there’s no high-five emoji…. Oh well, high five anyway.
  15. I’ve been meaning to post this here for weeks. I finally finished The overstory. it’s as cathartic and life changing as the cover and the awards suggest. I absolutely recommend it to anybody and everybody. Pure, undiluted literary magic. I started Jane Eyre but I’m making very little progress because it’s too heart breaking. Cried four times already and haven’t even got through the first quarter.
