  1. Watching this episode, I felt the same way I do whenever yet another person of color is killed - full of sorrow, anger, and outrage, with a feeling of helplessness that as a white woman I don't know how to help, when to approach with kindness, when to retreat with respect, afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing. It looks like Kate was reacting the same way - wanting to help, loving her brother, feeling the injustice, knowing she cannot live Randall's experience.
  2. I remember way back when, after a sizzling season 4 finale where there was so much tension, potential, and excitement to see what would happen in the season 5 premiere, and then we got...Lucy. It was deflating, and for some fans, a big mistake.
  3. I agree, early Intervention should be in place. I only worked with one visually impaired child in my career as a speech-language pathologist, but it's important because language is delayed when babies/children can't see things (nouns!) which are some of the first words.
  4. Where we live, we've 1) been told never to let anyone know if you've had surgery or a dental procedure, because there is a risk of of someone breaking and entering into your home to steal your opioids, 2) to fill the prescription for Narcan that is given to you with opioids now and keep it, even though you think you won't need it, and 3) to use the drug deactivation system that they gave us when done taking the medicine. We live in a rural area, but it's bad here, too.
  5. I think it was after she had left the show, but I recall Julianna Margulies being quoted as commenting on the ridiculousness of the direction of the show when the patients are the doctors and nurses due to accident/crashes/fire/etc. She said something like, "The ER is supposed to be the place where we HELP people who are injured; we are not supposed to be the patients."
  6. I also loved "Aneese Nameena" because he sang, "próspero año y felicidad,"
  7. This episode did not disappoint us. We howled from the monologue to the end. Colin is adorable and I enjoyed his reaction to the "wine" splashing him and clothing. Pete has a place in my heart - maybe it's the mom in me - and I always wish him well. Eddie Freaking Murphy was phenomenal.
  8. We bought a gas range that has two ovens (since my kitchen, even though the house is only 11 years old, didn't have room for two wall ovens). I use both of them PLUS a counter-top turkey oven PLUS crock pots PLUS a toaster oven for Thanksgiving dinner.
  9. In addition, new research has shown that obesity is actually a disease that some people have and do not gain weight with it while other people have it and they gain lots of weight. You can consume 750 calories and your body will only use 500 of it, while I can consume the same amount and my body will take all 750 calories. It's fascinating new research. I have just started seeing a bariatric physician and he said that the old "calories in/calories expended" way of losing weight is not the panacea for weight loss. There's much too much to go into now, but when he saw my blood test results, h
  10. I would not miss Leslie if she left. She constantly flubs her lines (this hasn't gotten better with experience), and she yells constantly.
  11. Fellow Fightin' Blue Hen right here :) I drove to UD from Long Island, and it's a 3 hour trip. It's a breeze from New Jersey. Now, Alpine, NJ to Philly, I can see people being up at arms about Randall running for office - Bergen County is a suburb of Manhattan, not in the greater metropolitan area of Philly. That would be like someone living in Benton Harbor, Michigan running for councilman in Chicago, Illinois. As others have said, there are plenty of things you can do to help a community, including attending a council meeting to nudge the councilman to do something I had my babies from
  12. I agree. I'm a boomer, remember and lived through the Vietnam war, and just didn't like this episode in relation to this particular show.
  13. I lived through the Vietnam era and did not like this episode at all. Of course, I hate any "war" shows, movies, etc. and I don't really find Jack all that compelling. I gave this show two chances and fell asleep both times. Interesting about the lottery. My number would have been 364.
  14. Oh, I love this story. When I was pregnant with our second, I recall relaxing in the afternoon and after talking about it, deciding if we had a girl (this was 30 years ago when we didn't know ahead of time), we'd name her "Alexis" (not her real name). That night, we got a call from my husband's stepfather telling us his son and daughter-in-law had just had a baby girl and they named her Alexis. We looked at each other and smiled. Three months later, we did have our second of three daughters and we named her Alexis. When we told his mom and stepfather, stepfather said, "But we ALREADY have an A
  15. I so agree. Randall gets his bio dad and his adopted dad. Two dads for the price of one. Sure, I understand he didn't know William but for a short time, but he's passed on William's genes. Seriously, it cannot have just occurred to him that he has no biological connection to Jack.
