  1. @Carol the Dabbler Haven't seen the video but I hope the title is sarcasm. Is it worth watching? I am here to comment about nick names! I think I faintly know that James is Jim, those kind of nick name. But I totally forgot about William and Bill. This agitates me for some reason as I named a villain as William and a nice cute lovable dog as Billy. And then, when I read The Picture of Dorian Gray, I found another quite unusual one. Henry = Harry??? Why you are doing this, English name/language? In my world, Billy is Billy, Henry is Henry!
  2. He did what??? That is.. dedication! It's certainly very fitting with your user name. Do you like other Fantasy books? Personally, I'm not really into Fantasy, but I do like The Song of Ice and Fire, although I don't really categorize it as Fantasy as there is a lot of realism in them with some sprinkle of magic and dragons. Harry Potter is okay for me and once in a while I enjoy those like Miss Peregrine's. My favorite genre is Scifi, but not those hard space cowboy or alien scifi, I think the more accurate category would be Speculative Fiction in Dystopian category, and I picked my recent books from Goodreads suggestions (based on previous books that I read). The latest I read was 1984 by George Orwell. It's really embarrassing, I thought I was reading Animal Farm (by the same author). I chose AF because I thought it is a 'lighter' read, I would like to read 1984 someday, but not now, as I feel depressed enough with the current world situation, but I have to admit 1984 being banned made me curious. Still, I wouldn't want to read it too soon. So there I was, happily thinking I read Animal Farm, and until I had finished the book and wrote the review, I went on to read others' reviews and found out we were not talking about the same book! And I had, indeed, read 1984. No wonder it was so depressing. I won't re-read it again as it's exhausting, but it's a brilliant book. Before that, I had just finished reading Fahrenheit 451 and The Giver, Goodreads seems to give me great recommendations but I need to look for something lighter, unfortunatelu my kindle library is limited to older books.
  3. If you watch the whole season, I'd love to hear your take. For me, I just binged season 1-8 not too long ago, maybe it helps because I was not as disappointed as others. To me, Season 1 and 2 is the best though.
  4. Why am I worried that you will reveal bits by bits lower and we will eventually see what we are not supposed to see??? Is this her as well?
  5. Oh yes, I watched the original language too with subtitles, and cringed very hard when I saw the clip of the English dub one of the first game. It's so different! I wasn't aware with the series until the hype was almost gone, but seen so many memes around and decided to get to it instead of being spoiled. The other Korean show that I watch (still like to rewatch) and love is The Genius. Why nobody sees it???!! I need to talk about it!
  6. Recently I rekindle (PUN!) my love for reading. I used to love it, I have couple of walls filled with books (with a very good chunk of unread ones). When I moved almost a decade ago I was gifted a Kindle with plenty of ebooks. I still pick up books here and there but it was never at the same capacity, I'm more distracted with many other things. But now, I am back! Any readers here? Genre?
  7. Hey, it seems like you all get complicated instructions. Mine is very simple
  8. When I accidentally catch my neighbour's eyes (no, dog is not pooping)
  9. Yet I am surprised you still don't bother to raise it up in your secret moderation meetings and make it happen. Hi, welcome! To answer your question: First, it was to discuss about Sherlock. Second, when I start to know the members, I find many are 'similar' or at least understand me, which is wonderful since there are only a few who do in my real life, so it's become personal. And I weirdly enjoy the calm/quiet community. Whenever it springs to life during new seasons, I'd chicken out and hide. Third, I can make weird jokes and get away with it here (or so I think). Hmmmmmm donkey-sized cake...
  10. Good heavens, Carol. Comfort over sexy, please. What would Sherlock say?
  11. Yes, although some, to my wonder, have their own vocabs but the borrowed words are also widely used. You know what guys? I think I'll never stop finding things that 'annoy' me. A unique and an honest, how on earth are we, the humble non-English speaking creatures know what is silent and not... I have come with one conclusion, that English language is.... THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE!
  12. It's very cool information, Carol. But how on earth did you come up with that topic and actually checked the cemetery? I mean... I have many odd ideas and known for starting to laugh randomly at midnight during my uni, but this...
  13. But what happens if I come to Nothing thread, and see Nothing so I post Nothing, and then you check Nothing thread, see Nothing and post Nothing too? I'd suggest you moderators put a cake giveaway for anyone who post something in that Nothing thread, so it doesn't live up to its name, because Nothing is not created to be Nothing, right?
