  1. That Michael J Fox cameo made my day. How cute! Re: Janet Hubert/Will Smith: She participated in the upcoming Fresh Prince reunion show thats going to be on HBO Max in a few days. So at least both parties put their differences aside for at least that one day. There is a cute photo of Will with the 2 Aunt Vivs going around. (I would share it but I'm on my phone).
  2. @bilgistic I complained when FB would continuously have that same ad pop up in my feed. One of my FB friends explained that it is a facial exerciser. I discussed my Bell's Palsy experience from my youth not long before that ad started to appear so it's plausible. Doesn't make it any less disturbing, though.
  3. To be fair, they are supposed to be in Austin. I only visited Austin briefly last year, but most everyone I interacted with did not talk with an accent.
  4. Tropical Storm Eta. This thing just won't go away. It caused major flooding here the past two days. It headed west into the Gulf and now may be turning back east. My baby is due at the end of the month, but I can go into labor any day now. Its already enough dealing with the COVID pandemic, I really would not like to have to give birth during or after a storm event. 🙄
  5. Damn. We lost a legend. RIP Alex.
  6. This song has been my total mood for today.
  7. Agreed. I get that it's disappointing to feel like a career failure, but c'mon. Darlene saw her mom take shit from a teenaged twerp at the chicken shack just to provide for her kids. She also knew her mom was passionate enough about writing that the basement became her writing room at one point. I get why the show wants to avoid too much talk about Roseanne Conner, but its crazy to me that Darlene at her age with teenage kids of her own wouldn't have the maturity to realize that you have to eat shit sometimes to do whats best for your family. Also, why the hell is Ben doing Instacart instead of helping Dan out? I don't mind him doing it for supplemental income, but a guy of his size and stature should be ashamed of himself to watch Dan at his age doing all that physical labor and not at least offer to work with him part-time--especially since he seems to be living under Dan's roof too.
  8. I am a loner at work as well but I am polite and cordial to most of my coworkers. You can be introverted without acting like you're better than everyone else. I guess Darlene is lucky Mark and Harris aren't as needy as she and Becky were (and kind of still are) or she would have realized long ago that you do what you have to do to provide for your kids. You think she would have learned that from watching her mom take one shit job after another to help provide from them, but oh well.
  9. I just found out that my son is 6 lbs 14 oz in the womb and I'm only 36 weeks....and they say he's measuring long as well. The thought of giving birth to a projected 8.5lb human by the end of the month is keeping me more nervous and distracted than anything else. Hearing that makes me feel like I'm going to give birth to Andre the Giant. Add that on to the fact that I'm in the process of moving and my nerves are just shot. So yeah, I've been eating everything in sight today ( probably contributing to his added weight but oh well).
  10. Poor DJ. It really is what is best for Mary, especially in these times when social interaction between children has been so heavily adjusted from the norm. I hope he sees that soon. Loved Dan and Darlene's talk. I agree with Dan, but also see Darlene's point as well, especially with the effect social media has on society. Loved the in-house trick or treating and loved Mary and Mark's initial costumes, especially the gumball machine.
  11. Freddie, without question. Jimi would be my 2nd choice.
  12. I thought the minimal makeup and unkempt hair was purposefully done to reflect the realism of people not getting haircuts/their hair done or caring much about outward appearance during the pandemic. Ben should be going to work for Dan at this point,even if it is practically for free. He looks strong and abled bodied enough to handle that kind of work. Loved the Booker shoutout. Wonder if the eviction moratorium will pull through for them, just in the nick of time.
  13. Damn. "Your Love" is one of my favorite '80s tunes. Hate how many '80s stars/musicians we've lost in recent years--it makes me so sad that pieces of my childhood are slowly fading away. Anyway, RIP Mr. Lewis.
  14. I get such a visceral reaction from high pitched baby voices or people who talk normal but end every comment on a high pitched note. I went to the doctor's office for a checkup the other day and the usual tech was out, and the girl taking my blood pressure/weight ended every question on a high pitched vocal fry. It was so irritating that she had to retake my blood pressure 3 times before it went down to my normal range. It would be one thing if it was natural and the person couldn't help it, but it was clearly a fake-baby voice used in an attempt to be friendly/polite. I just cannot. I am also sick of the random pregnancy weight gain comments from family and co-workers. "Oh, man you are just blowing up!", "You are so much bigger than last week!", "You look like you're about to explode!" Seriously, just be quiet. I am 8 1/2 months along and the baby is gaining almost a pound a week at this point. I was small up until month 7. I am already dealing with enough panic and stress worrying about labor, and adjusting to life as a first-time single mom. I don't need the unnecessary and ignorant fat shaming comments (and most of it isn't fat---it's a whole mini-human in there!). Oh and speaking of doctors--I am so looking forward to the end of the nonstop doctor's appointments. I am so sick of being poked and prodded, measured and tested on. I get that its necessary and I am glad the baby is being well-monitored but I just am so over it. Pretty soon it will be his turn for all that, poor guy. Hopefully he won't take after me and will be more patient with doctors than I am. 🙂
  15. I wish we were getting fall weather. It's still in the 90s here and even at night there is no wind or breeze. I am craving some relief from the unbearable heat. Anyway, I agree with all those that say candy corn is gross. I also think Snickers and Reeses are disgusting. Milky Ways, Almond Joy, and Mounds are my go-to candies.
