@planforamiracle @planforamiracle I think, no matter how secure you (the general "you") are ok with singledom there's so much of that couples/love/togetherness stuff in the air this time of year it can seep into your brain. I'm pretty contentedly single at the moment, but stuff like...having coworkers ask me if I'm bringing a date to the office holiday party, and having to answer, "No." bummed me out a little for a number of reasons (most, silly). Anyway, I've just been trying to be nice to myself when I fall into those traps, like, remind myself that I can't control how I feel and it's ok that these thoughts pop up and don't take it personally.
And if nothing else, just remind yourself that now you have one less person to buy gifts for!
Oof, yeah. Overall I enjoyed it...but I definitely have some problems with a) the plot points/characters Jackson et al. added and b) the fact that they took a short kids book and stretched it out to 3 movies (thus necessitating adding shit that wasn't in the book).
And I can't pinpoint why this is but the fact that Legolas was in the movie bothers me WAY more than the elf/dwarf romance stuff.
@muddgirl Yeah, many of them wound up in the rural South, or bankrupt Central CA towns, for just 2 examples. Many wound up with no home at all to live in, so hopefully this dude will excuse my having no sympathy for him and his used BMW and too-large home.
Sounds like a real peach, this guy. I mean, I get how much it sucks to be stuck, against your will, in Darkest Suburbia but jeeeesh.
Personally I'm on Team Cumberbatch Is Hot BUT that said Jeremy Brett really needs to be #1 on that list. On all lists. Ever.
I tuned in right as Grandma was taking a deep swig from a FLASK of all things so yup, I'd say I'm a fan.
@iceberg Yeeeeaaaaaaaaaahhh ranch dressing shots!
@A. Louise Hmm - maybe, "verge"?
@A. Louise Weeds?
