Re: Have you thanked a narcissist today? (Pros/cons of the self-involv

Um, for reasons I'd rather not go into, I cannot post about my dealings with narcissists here. But at least all those dealings are in the past for me.

Carry on. Nothing to see here. ;)

Re: The Tootsie Quiz

Ummm... this says my answer to question "What was the name of Julie's character on the soap?" was wrong. I just double-checked, and my answer was correct. Your answer was wrong, Gideon! UMMM... :D

Re: Is it practical for us to live here?

I believe in an intelligent personal God who put each of us here for a reason. I also believe we've messed up along the way and need His help (each of us individually and also nations corporately). ...

I never liked hamburgers made at home by Mom (or anyone else, even on the grill). I always thought fast-food hamburgers were the HEIGHT of burgerdom. I gagged on the ones my Mom made.

This is a sure sign that you're an introvert. Extroverts recharge their "batteries" by being around other people. They love it. It drains their batteries to be alone.

Oooh, I'll buy it too, just to support meatwad, if nothing else. Also, when I logged into Steam to check it out, Steam is advertising it right in front of me! Nice!

Re: Franklin (Michael Douglas plays Benjamin Franklin)

I'm watching episode 2. Costumes are fabulous. Ambiance is great. Actors are all holding their own.

I have that game and play it quite frequently (but not lately). It's a little scarier than I care for (I tend to opt for the vistas that have the least amount of big, nasty animals), and yeah, it's...

Re: Baby Reindeer

Just binged this yesterday and got through all seven episodes easily. (It helped that they were each only about a half hour.)

It was a good weekend-afternoon-when-I-feel-bleh binge. Despite its...

Finished the eight available episodes. For anyone who's also read the books... how far did this first season get into the story? Based on the 50%-ish of the first book that I made it through before...

Tongo, did you try verifying the game files in Steam? Sometimes it is a glitch in the downloaded files or Steam's running of a game, and verifying the game files would at least eliminate that...

Most manufacturers don't want you replacing your own battery. They'd rather have even more of your money to replace it themselves. This is where YouTube is your friend. The manufacturer makes it...

Re: TCL Phone

My electrical engineer hubby always says to get a new battery if yours is getting puffy/swollen. NOT good. YouTube can probably help you figure out how to get the old battery out and how to put a new...

Well, somewhere past the halfway point I am probably giving up on reading the first book. I've been envisioning how this thing has been adapted to the screen and it's just too much curiosity now....
