  1. "an enraged TRex." hahahahahaha! She really needs to take her big deal self somewhere out of the way.
  2. there's an ad for Smile Direct Club where the name is sort of sang, but either I'm not understanding what they are singing or smile has two syllables.
  3. at my last house, I had something like a screen in my gutters, not quite as fine as a screen for a window or door, but smaller than a chicken wire fence. It worked well, kept the leaves and twigs out of the drains, but was open enough for water to go through just fine. It was good until my 14 yr old great nephew decided he had to climb on the roof, discovered it and thought it was hilarious that it was there and took it out. Idiot child. I didn't install it, it was there when I moved in. And re the sex toys discussion on As Seen on TV, I'm so old I use the neck massager to massage my neck
  4. there's Meaningful Beauty, Cindy Crawford's thing, then there's hair care products called Function of Beauty, they are mixed for specific types of hair. I haven't figured out if they're for all women or women of color, it hasn't really mattered that much to me to figure it out. But when they first started advertising, there was a line that always made me laugh, "my curls are on fire!" I see that as a problem, a potentially painful problem, one might need to soak those curls in water if they're on fire! I personally have problems with lots of shampoos, soaps, lotions, skin allergies. I fi
  5. I don't mind those ads, I've gotten so used to them, I don't really hear them anymore. But I hated their ad campaign where they had various singers/groups trying out to sing the song, especially the boy band, I wanted to smash their faces in. I didn't know that was Snoop Dog in the Corona commercials. I'm just not up on celebrities. And for some reason, I had it in my head that Snoop Dog was a big guy, like football player big. Oh, well, who knew?
  6. Didn't see this one discussed, but I enjoy it, but it's a fail because I can't remember if it's Pet Smart or PetCo. People with their pets, and people singing "I'd Do Anything for You," from Oliver!. I like the song and sing along and afterwards. And, I'm thinking I need to see Oliver! again, soon.
  7. I'm thoroughly annoyed at any of the K peoples ads. I agree with annoyance at famous for being famous, that's as bad as "influencers". Which, come to think of it, they are probably the first influencers. It's such a stupid concept and word.
  8. eel21788, several years ago, I adopted a Cocker Spaniel from an organization here in Tulsa, OK. I was looking for a specific kind of Cocker, I wanted a black female, preferably a small one. There were none available for rescue at that time here. But one organization I applied with helped with the transport of dogs that were found as strays and owner surrenders from Oxford Mississippi, apparently that's a real problem there, and all over the southern states. But this organization rescued dogs from Oxford and transported them to Boulder for adoption. The people in Tulsa helped with transfers, wh
  9. Back to the subject of DABL, here the over the air channel is in a block of digital channels owned by a religious group. At the top of many hours, the first 30 seconds of sound of the new show are covered up by the beginning of some religion/preacher show. My favorite is at 3 PM CDST, the first few minutes of 60 Minute Makeover is covered by "I love you. This is Herman something and I'm sitting here with my good friend of at least 15 years." Then it cuts to the beginning of the program. I've love watching the UK design and house hunting shows. I love the differences between those and the

    I like some things about Pluto. I watched all of Leverage several times. But my go to channels are Antique Roadshow, UK and true crime shows like Forensic Files or Cold Case Files or even Unsolved Mysteries. Lately my go to is Antique Roadshow, UK. But what I dislike about Pluto, is I have to have the tv on to sleep and Antique Roadshow is perfect. If I wake up and have trouble going back to sleep it's interesting without me having to invest a lot into watching, I can fall back asleep. But apparently Pluto does not want a channel left on for hours of bingeing. After about 4 hours, a messa
  11. re hot flashes in menopause, get a small spritzer bottle, dollar store cheap, buy several, keep them all over the house, keep one at the office, the car. Fill with water, when the hot flash starts, spritz yourself in the face, just a quick spritz. Instant relief. Don't get hot flashes much any more, and now the spritzer bottles are to get my dogs to stop whatever it is they are doing that I don't want them to.
  12. helpful hint re menopause/hot flashes on small talk.
  13. I love the song, Let's Face the Music and Dance, I always see a couple doing a quick step when I hear it. And I have seen it used on DWTS and in ice dancing. I really don't pay attention to what's happening on the screen, I just like the song.
  14. I like to double dip. However I don't do it with any shared dip. I put some in a small dish and double dip to my heart's content.
  15. this one annoys me because, the sister has a neighbor and he's supposed to remember which neighbor? Is there only one neighbor the sister talks about and has introduced him to? To me, the sister's neighbor is a relationship so far removed from my every day existence that I wouldn't have a clue? Except Neighbor Billy, my sister had a friend/neighbor that she always called him Neighbor Billy. I asked her once if that was his birth name. At some point, she could have just said Billy and I would have known of whom she was speaking. But what I came here to gripe about was not one commercial,
  16. Not exactly a favorite, but we have no category for commercials that amuse. I've been watching Law and Order on WE most of the day. They been running ads with scenes from the show, with the dialog changed. One is something about Covid, I don't really pay attention. But saw some new ones today for Criminal Minds that are hilarious. I can't remember most of the ad, but several times they have Shemar Mppre saying something about you'll see him posing pretty and then he says something about you'll see me like this, and they put up a scene with him shirtless and he says, aren't I pretty. I really h
  17. what's worse than an earworm in a commercial? an earworm they don't finish! Just saw an ad, the one that uses Cindy Lauper's All Through the Night, the singer sang, "all through the" and they cut to a different commercial! AAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHHHH! Now I have to find the song and hear it to finish it. I like that one and I don't even mind the slowed down version on the commercial.
  18. that is a name tailor made for a soap opera.
  19. I'm not sure how I feel about the Colace cutesy song about pooping and no. 2. There are two different songs, one about pooping and one about no. 2. I'm leaning toward irritated.
  20. we're doing a little remodeling, painting, sanding and staining and sealing floors, new surround and vanity and floors in bathroom, etc. Had to replace some trim molding in the one bedroom. Fairly simple molding, from a late 50s/early 60s ranch style tract house. $7/foot. The room is not large about 12x12, but that can add up fast.
  21. Obviously, I do not watch closely enough. Actually, I do very little watching. I mostly listen.
  22. I bought my cell phone in 2008 when my family insisted because I was driving 250 miles to my high school reunion. I started with one that the keypad kind of pulled out from the bottom of the phone, moved to one that had a keypad and screen on one piece with a keyboard that pulled out of the side. After my nephew had it and got in a fight with the neighbor kids and dropped it and they brought it home, smashed with a hammer and left it on my porch, I went to a $15 flip phone. I've replaced this one about 3 times, one time the dog chewed it up, one time my nephew had a fight with a friend and the
  23. Re the Progressive ad where the customer has a claim and the gang all drop what they're doing and rush to the accident site. Flo is dressed like Flo, Jamie is in cap and gown like he was giving a speech at a graduation, Mara was either at a prom or was a bridesmaid and I don't know the other guy's name, but he was fly fishing. I just caught Mara's little comment at the end, she mutters under her breath, not so softly, "you smell like fish." The fly fisher guy says, "sorry." She replies, "not you, Jamie." or "I was talking to/about Jamie." or close to one of those. Cracks me up. And I wil
  24. Re treadmill accidents from Annoying, Irritating, Enraging, I was on my treadmill and my brother came over to my house to get something. I told him it was in the bathroom, underneath the sink. He couldn't find it, I told him 3 times. Finally, I got off the treadmill and went and got it for him, in the bathroom, under the sink, right where I told him. I left the treadmill running, big mistake. I tried to get back on it, went flying backwards, landed face down on the end of the thing. Had to have my brother take me to the ER for X-rays for a concussion. I was fine, but terrible headache and a bl
  25. There were an estimated 22,500 treadmill-related injuries treated at US emergency departments among all ages, I've been one. Since it's a topic for Small Talk, if anyone is interested and I don't expect it, I'll go there if requested. Edited to add my take on the stupid Pelotan ads. I assumed (I know) that everyone taking the class with the instructors suddenly and inexplicably changed their name to Pelotan so the instructor wouldn't have to exercise their brains too much.
