    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    That sounds perfect, @Jynnan tonnix. I visited Scotland over Christmas vacation when I was studying abroad in Paris with a Scottish friend I made in Paris. I was staying with a family but it did get cold (though, having lived in NY and my university was in Binghamton, it was not that cold) and their pipes froze. I loved it though and had memorable time.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    My mom dislocated her toe walking down stairs holding my son. She kind of fell and while trying to stay upright and not drop her grandson, she bashed her toe into the wall at the bottom of the stairs. Took her to the ER the next day (it was a weekend) and the doc came in after all the work up and asked, "This toe?" My mom says yes. And he yanks it into place. She was gobsmacked and pissed off. But that was about all they could do. She was told they don't really set toes as they do fingers, you kind of just get used to it. But this was 16 years ago, so I may be remembering wrong.

    @DragonFaerie, I am so very sorry for your loss. What a terrible shock. Holding you close. Here's the area/post in case anyone wanted to check it out.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    I think that Nebula knew that Gamora didn't leave Vormir, but I don't think she knew that Thanos killed her. She could assume that Thanos let her die/didn't try to save her. She wasn't there and Thanos didn't explain the whole soul for a soul thing. Perhaps Nebula figured that having a team that wasn't hell bent on destroying the universe would figure out a way to get both out alive. And maybe that's why Widow and Hawkeye went because they knew they were a formidable team that had worked together for so long and they weren't going to let anything happen to the other.

    S07.E01: The Further Adventures

    When I had bunion surgery 7 years ago, they were several confirmations about which toe was to be operated on. They even marked it with a Sharpie. So I was a little taken aback, too, that such an error could have occurred even though I had heard of such mishaps occurring. Perhaps he didn't go through checklist and really didn't want it to come out that he was so lax and not following standard procedure. I did appreciate that Watson explained that the victim would not have known immediately because the after care and post surgery pain would be similar. It wouldn't be until she really looked after the swelling went down that she would know. I wonder if he scarred her so he could "rescue" her and fix her since he screwed up? Also, it was a way to erase, effectively, what he did without killing her. So when she did jump he was shocked? How difficult is it jump into a shaft, though. That seems dang near impossible to do. I was so pleased to see that Joan and Sherlock hadn't forgotten about Marcus and his career advancement. And I was ticked when Gregson was nudging him to stay. Dude, cut it out. Let him pursue these opportunities.

    So very sorry for your loss, @Happyfatchick. It is heartbreaking losing a friend. @Mindthinkr, I'm sorry your daughter is lashing out at you like that. That can't be easy.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Yeah, as funny as it sometimes was to see Thor fat, when Prof Hulk was trying to talk to him, saying how Thor saved him and he's going to help Thor now, I don't think Thor was there solely for comic relief. His whole breakdown with Rocket in Asgard while funny because it's not the Thor we're used to, it's also so heartbreaking because he lost everything, even himself. I'm glad he's going with the Guardians who have no expectation of what he should be and how he should be. And I'm glad he saw his mother and not his father. He needed that validation that it's ok to be lost and it's ok to be who you are and not what is expected of you. What's the expression, it' so bad that if you didn't laugh you'd cry. That, for me, is Thor in this movie. But I laughed a lot at some of the Thor stuff. Chris Hemsworth walked the line between pathos and humor so well. He is perfect as Thor. Actually I can't think of one misstep in casting.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    I saw it the second weekend and the theater laughed quietly at most things. We were a group of 10 and couldn't get seats together (and we paid for those tickets and chose the seats a week in advance). Right during the first few minutes--I think it was Tony and Nebula doing table football--one of my group who was sitting across the theater from me let out a huge laugh and the audience was silent. My daughter, who was sitting next to me, and I started laughing silently because we knew exactly who that was who laughed. I think Tony's quips and Rocket's snark got the most laughs, though Rhodey and his snark was a close second. "Do you know what runs through my veins?" "Cheez-whiz?" hahahaha! Poor Thor.

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars

    @Morrigan2575 that does look new. Also, it looks good. I heard Disney Plus is launching some time in November but I don't know how long after Clone Wars will start. I'm looking forward to the Marvel mini shows, but I am really, really looking forward to this.

    The domain name changed which would necessitate logging in. If you look at your address bar, the website name is different. It says forums.primetimer instead of forums.ptv. I was on the lookout for that change since it was mentioned as I assumed I would have to change my favorite.

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    I only saw it once, too, @Perfect Xero, so maybe I'm mashing scenes together, but for some reason I remember her complaining to a parent that they always let her brother do it and she wanted to do it, too. Which, as you pointed out in the end, she needs to learn how to use her powers. But I think the flashbacks were to show she was prevented from even trying to learn to do things. I also think the flashbacks were also supposed to show that yes, you will fail at first. The important thing is learning from that and trying again. To not be allowed to fail and learn was holding her back. And thinking about it, how fearless is she? How many people don't try something for fear of failure? Perhaps that's what the author of the article is conflating arrogance with? Carol was fearless and just plowed ahead. Never mindlessly but determined to do something even if she failed at first.

    Harris is only in the second one, A Game of Shadows. It's not the best movie, if I'm honest, but he's awesome in it. Also awesome in that movie is Stephen Fry as Mycroft.
