  1. I’m usually entirely unaffected by caffeine. If I have an energy drink (which is rare), it’s because I like the taste. Not sure if it was the caffeine or the sugar that gave me so much energy, but if it was the caffeine, it’d be a first! Which might be nice for me actually, because I’m chronically fatigued, and getting through a day can be hard without some kind of pick-me-up.
  2. You guys don’t know what you’re missing! This is some quality programming right here.
  3. I slept for 4 hours and had weird Loki dreams, lol. I’m exhausted. It sure was good stuff though.
  4. No, you were right the first time. I have downloaded them, but I still don’t like the thought of leaving them in a place that might restrict my access to them on their website in the future. I want control over my stuff, and I don’t trust them to let me keep it. Does that make sense? Maybe it doesn’t, lol. That’s probably what I’ll do. Boo on Photobucket though.
  5. My tired eyes read this as “Bill Murray” and I was so confused for a minute, lol.
  6. I just discovered that if I go to the profile page, click/hold the cover photo, and drag it to a new tab on my web browser, the full photo will open in the tab. So there's a workaround! Now I can see your whole Basic, lol.
  7. You'll have to quietly make your escape tonight, lol. I made the mistake of drinking two cans of Mountain Dew Kickstart (Pineapple Orange Mango) a couple hours ago, so I'm rarin' to go. You'll be lucky if you don't wake up to another of my photo-posting sprees tomorrow morning.
  8. A little bit... I'm more concerned about losing access to them altogether, unless I pay. Like they might lock them up, or something. It's more what I don't know they'll do that worries me, I guess. I'm intensely private, not least of all with my creative property, and I don't trust them anymore because of the stunt they pulled. It's just an uncomfortable feeling.
  9. Guess what's on MeTV right now? It's "Lost in Space", your favorite.
  10. I've got nearly 6,000 photos on there (not all of them my own). I'd mostly been using Photobucket to post them on a few forums I no longer frequent, and in my online journal (when it still existed), which I have downloaded elsewhere. So my only reason for leaving them on Photobucket would be so I can see which photos are in a particular journal entry, should I choose to reread them. But if I deleted the photos, the link would still remain. So if I really wanted to, I could just look at the name of the photo in the link and then find the corresponding photo in the folder I've just downloaded. Leaving them would be easier, but I'm frustrated with Photobucket and a little uneasy about leaving them sitting there.
  11. I'm a light sleeper too where noises are concerned, but for some reason thunder seems to be an exception. Or maybe it wakes me, but it's easy for me to fall back to sleep. Anyway, it is boomy! We had some really close strikes. My poor dogs. I hope you can get to sleep soon.
  12. I logged in for the first time in a long time. They updated their interface a bit, so I was finally able to download my photos. That's a relief. Deciding now whether I want to delete them from Photobucket, or just leave them.
  13. Why is that? Is it just that the thunder keeps you awake? I actually sleep pretty well during thunderstorms. I find it cozy and comforting.
  14. I will always make an exception for Marvel content. I get it, I really do. The only reason I'm willing to pay for any streaming service is because, being as isolated as I often am, movies/TV are my main source of entertainment; and, some days, all that keeps me from tumbling back into depression, lol. Seriously though, it's really bugging me that so many channels and studios are starting their own streaming services. Splitting up the content for a money grab is going to make it much less accessible to me. When I heard CBS was putting their new "Star Trek" series on its streaming channel, I put my foot down, lol. I also won't pay for Apple, HBO, Starz, CW, WB, DC Universe, or any others that are preparing to launch in the near future. I might pay for PBS... maybe. If there's something I reeeeally must see.
  15. First thunderstorm of the year today. It's officially spring! Some people look for signs of spring in robins, geese, flowers... I wait for thunder.
  16. Oh, I certainly wasn't suggesting it right now. The series' won't even be finished until the end of 2021, or later now with the production stall. But anyway, I feel you. I'm in exactly the same situation, down to the major car repair. Even if a stimulus check does eventually arrive, the amount they're talking about won't go all that far. Scary times indeed. I wish I had some words of encouragement for you that wouldn't sound trite... but I really don't know what to do. Just trying to take it day by day.
  17. I finished season 2 of Netflix's "Lost in Space" last weekend. Boo. I wanted to like it, I really did. But the robots' (still unresolved) storyline bothered me, every episode was a "rush to rescue" episode, and the Robinsons themselves were neither as intelligent nor as morally admirable as I would have liked or expected. It could have been good, but in the end, there just wasn't much to like. I did like JJ Feild's appearance as the morally ambivalent Ben Adler. But I have a soft spot for characters who seem good at heart but took a terrible turn somewhere and then redeem themselves in the end; especially when they are played by soft-spoken British men, lol. And objectively speaking, his acting ability was a level up from most of the rest, which set him apart in a way that made the others seem a little bit amateur, which may not have been as glaring without him. Whether that's a positive or negative, I don't know. I hope this doesn't actually put anyone else off from giving it a try. You might be less exacting than I and enjoy it just fine.
  18. Terrible! I'm stressed about not working, so I've been tossing and turning, having bad dreams, and waking up a lot.
  19. I was never comfortable sitting in a packed theater. But I know what you mean. If the theaters had stayed open through this, it would have been an ideal time for me to go, lol. Extra clean and hardly anyone there!
  20. Sorry to disappoint, lol. It could get better, but I honestly doubt it.
  21. Same here, lol. I've always had good hand-washing habits. When I worked in a library, my hands would get grimy from all the materials passed from person to person. I became really sensitive to the feel of dirt on my hands, even when I couldn't see it yet, and I started washing my hands after touching anything I thought a lot of other people might have touched, e.g. after shopping. When I heard that handshakes were cancelled I was just like, 🤷‍♀️ ... fine by me! Never cared for them anyhow, I'd rather just nod if I must acknowledge someone, lol. As far as personal distance is concerned, nothing's really changed all that much for me except for the fact that, like I said before, I now have to circle far around people when I walk by them sometimes instead of continuing in a straight line. Oh they definitely are. My mother's an extrovert, and normally I only occasionally hear from her, but I've been getting texts from her every day lately that are along the lines of, "HELLOOOOO, ANYBODY OUT THERE????"
