    I also dislike "Friends". Not with a fiery passion, I suppose, but still. I internally scream when someone puts it on. I usually need to see a good portion of a show before I know if I like it or not, especially a comedy. It's hard for me to like anything until I've spent enough time getting to know the characters. There are a lot of shows I couldn't stand to begin with and would have missed out on if I hadn't given them some time.

    Cute and Funny Ads

    Not a holiday ad, but I love these old Seinfeld and Superman ads for American Express.

    I just looked and the movie starts in 1845, and Logan looks to be somewhere between 5 and 10 at the time, so it must have been late 1830's.

    Yes, the opening title scene of "Origins" briefly showed him fighting in the Civil War (among others). Here's a video! If I remember correctly, according to "Origins" he was born in the 1800's, but I can't remember what year. The movie set in Japan was "The Wolverine".
  5. I look forward to seeing the fireworks every year, but it's so hot and humid, I'm not sure I want to go this year. I'll already be fighting off mosquitoes, I don't know if I'm up to contending with the heat too. I really wish people would not set off fireworks at all hours for weeks around the 4th. My poor dogs are too scared to go potty, and it keeps waking them up.

    I finally saw "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and "The Wolverine". Liked both a lot! Poor Logan just keeps getting dumped on though. Give the guy a break! Going to see "The Incredibles 2" tomorrow, we'll see how that is.
  7. I showed my dad this video the other day. He thinks the cat is actually saying "Hey." I don't know whether to correct him or just let him enjoy it, lol.

    I'm rather ambivalent about Batman in general, as a character, and I don't care for any of the other "Batman" movies. But I do like "The Dark Knight" trilogy a lot. I didn't like "Frozen" the first time I saw it, and people kept telling me I would like it if I watched it again. I've now seen it 4 times and I still don't like it, lol. Trying to think of a movie that grew on me... I know there has been one or two.

    I don't know who specifically, just "critics", whoever they are, lol. Google renders a multitude of examples, like this one: " Why critics are calling 'Logan' the 'best superhero movie ever' ". It's somewhere on the Wikipedia page too, I think, and I've heard it on TV. "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is highly acclaimed as well, and I've often seen it quoted by critics as the best movie of the MCU. But for me it was one of the duller superhero films, and not one I rewatch often. Anyway, I don't believe any one movie is deserving of such a title, but there are plenty of contenders! I agree about "The Dark Knight" trilogy, that one's high on my list too. I have a lot of favorites though, lol.

    Different strokes for different folks. (By the way I didn't think it was not good, just super depressing; and I personally wouldn't call it 'the best superhero movie of all time'.)

    That's what I've heard; but personally I don't think "different" or "realistic" necessarily mean "better", and I don't think a story has to be realistic to be relatable. I've seen far more fantastical settings where characters have struggles that are just as real and relatable to me. But, that's just me. I rail against the notion film critics seem to have that something needs to be dismal and/or include character deaths in order to be considered realistic, artistic, classic, praiseworthy, or "the best".

    I watched "Logan" last night, and zooks was it depressing. Won't be watching it again any time soon,

    That's true, I could really have used that! I couldn't sleep in silence, so I used to fall asleep listening to my cassettes of fairy tales and radio shows (before I figured out that turning on a fan did the trick nicely, and much quicker). An ambience clip like that would have been perfect! Thanks for the tips! I only steamed for 5 minutes. I guess next time I'll try 3. Or maybe 2. They were super mushy. What happened to you with Brussel sprouts happened to me with a few things too, like ramen noodles. I ate so much of it, I can't stomach the stuff anymore. Even the smell turns my stomach. Heck, even the mention of it is making me a bit nauseous, lol.

    How do you cook them? I just followed the directions on the bag. I've had a few adventurous Sherlock dreams, but I can't recall what any were about at the moment. I have been known to scream in my sleep, but only occasionally, and usually only during the worst of the worst PTSD-related nightmares (not to get all depressing here, lol). Which used to be a lot more often than it is now. Speaking of Sherlock and sleep: This is slightly embarrassing (and something I only just now remembered), but when I was a kid, maybe 11 or 12, I delved into "Sherlock Holmes" for a stint after seeing one of the movies. I've always had nightmares of one sort or another, and I'd always had trouble getting to sleep. I would lie awake in bed for hours. But for awhile after the "Holmes" kick, when I was having a hard time of it, I used to imagine myself resting in 221B, with a fire in the fireplace and Sherlock and John in another room down the hall somewhere; and it helped me sleep. I suppose, in my mind, Sherlock always felt like a very safe person to have around. I didn't have any protectors in my life or people who I felt cared about me, so I started making them up. Worked pretty well for a time. Thanks for that, my fictional protector!

    Update: I put them in the oven. They are not better.
