  1. Wahhhhhh, I missed it! Serves me right for being absent so long..... Actually, I dimly remember hearing about it and then of course forgot ... pooh. I saw him as Frankenstein but really wanted to see his take on the creature as I thought it was the more interesting role. I imagine all those other projects mentioned above have either been temporarily or permanently aborted. Poor Ben, he seems to have had bad luck in that regard. (I'm thinking of the Edison movie; delayed, then bombed anyway.) I hear a lot of stuff is going straight to pay-per-view, which helps me not at all........
  2. Agh, too busy! Trying to sell my house. Have an offer ... if I take it, I'll be even busier, moving. UGH. Right now someone else is touring the house, so I'm sitting in my car at the library, borrowing their wifi and admiring their astonishing rose garden. This library is about five minutes from my house, and I had no idea this rose garden even existed until now. Every color rose you can think of, it's stunning. Well, wait ... nope, no black roses. Well, shoot, that ruins it.
  3. Hi all, just dropping in to let you know I'm still around, just been super busy. FL, sorry to hear what you've been going through, I'm in a similar situation with someone who I once thought of as my best friend. I'd like to keep her in my life, but she's sure making it tough. I hope your situation resolves. It sounds to me like you're on the right track. Hope everyone is staying safe. I'll try to drop in more often, miss you all!
  4. I don't think I realized before now how much butter/margarine is considered a staple! I suspect people are doing more baking than usual. That's why I ran out in the first place, in fact ... I baked myself a cake. Normally that carton of margarine would've lasted another few weeks. I can go for days with using the stuff, normally. I am picking up so many bad eating habits during this thing. Arrghhh.
  5. Lol, those are brilliant, now I want to read more bad plot descriptions. I think this may have been my favorite scene in the movie.
  6. Oh dear. Guess what I now have stuck in my head.
  7. I guess I'm skeptical because it was a huge thing in this area awhile back ... then bit by bit, the employers started cutting back on it, until hardly anyone was working from home. Whether it was because they didn't think their employees were doing as much work, or what, I don't know. It would be nice if they did permit more of it though; the traffic in this area is really becoming a problem, more working from home might help with that. One of my students told me she's using curbside pickup; she says she can't wait until she can go back to picking out her own purchases. I suspect younger people will adapt more easily, though. The big change I noticed this week was ... when I went shopping two weeks ago, there was a line because they were letting only a few people in the store at a time, and nearly everyone was wearing a mask. (And I noticed nobody was looking each other in the eyes, I suspect because they all felt as silly as I did with their masks on. It was kinda funny.) This week, though, you could walk right in, and hardly anyone was wearing a mask. It wasn't crowded, though, so I'm guessing people are going out less. Or maybe they were at other stores, trying to find toilet paper. This particular store hasn't had any the last three times I've been there. Or any other paper goods, for that matter. And still no margarine! Everything else seemed to be fully stocked, though.
  8. The comments are hysterical. Sometimes people are pretty clever. Some people are.
  9. I remember when gas prices first began to soar in this country, you could tell it made a difference; there were fewer and smaller cars on the road. Then the prices went back down, and people reverted to using their vans and wagons and SUVs. Then the price went up again ... and they just kept driving the big cars, and making just as many trips as before. So, no, I don't expect there will be a big change in human behavior.
  10. Clever kitties! Not so clever kitty: (For those who don't know, "Fly you fools!" is a reference to the first Lord of the Rings movie; it's what one character yells as he falls to his doom.)
