  1. I've always been mildly annoyed when the Brits use "cow" as a pejorative for a female, but it totally fits that woman. She's an enraged cow TRex. In a slinky blue dress. ...but I bet if we saw her in some likeable commercial, we wouldn't recognize her.
  2. Is it true that no one can begin a story anymore without "So..." being the first word? I liked Elaine. And I got really annoyed at "You got it!" which Savannah seemed to utter only when the guy got a response correct. I couldn't pull Olduvai out of my memory banks. I got as far as "dubai, no...duvai...there's something missing." For once, I got the Black Sea correct, not confusing it with the Caspian, as is my wont.
  3. 3/5 - the middle three. Monday & Friday blew chunks.
  4. Especially that (Priceline?) chick in the blue slinky dress "dancing" like an enraged TRex. She is the very definition of graceless, not to mention rude by blocking the luggage cart bellhop. Excuse me, but I think the phrase is "Yer dern tootin!" Thank you, Gabby Hayes.
  5. I call foul. The golf assistant is a caddy, not a caddie, so the double-d is NOT in the middle. I got Buzz Lightyear just before the contestants started to reveal. It certainly wouldn't have counted on the show, but I'm gonna claim it for Primetimer's FJ thread. LOL. As Mayim would have said, "C'mon, guys..." How can you NOT root for a guy who was BORN during a Jeopardy! episode? I did like the passport stamp tattoo story, though.
  6. I didn't think Petco was trying to steer into a new direction. I thought they'd been bought out by a parent company named "Health & Wellness." Turns out, that's not the case, but I just don't care enough. I never like Jimmie Walker but it's still distressing to see that ad. "They put $100 back into MY account." The way he keeps stressing "MY" it makes me wonder if I sign up, will that extra $100 go to Walker, as well?
  7. I don't watch that episode any more. I've seen it two or three times and that's enough. Even Joyce gets on my nerves in that one.
  8. Another way to get to Omar: Mrs. Eulalie McKecknie Shinn talking to Marian the Librarian... "The Ruby Hat of Omar Khayayayaya I am appalled!" When Katie was first introduced and she did that little salute thing, I said to the cats, "Oh, look, Pee-wee Herman is on Jeopardy!" She's really done nothing to dispel that first impression. One of my vets has a dog named Jackie O. I think people who resisted Mrs. Kennedy's second marriage still refer to her as Jackie Kennedy.
  9. Savannah Guthrie, J.D. from Georgetown U. Law Center.
  10. I didn't know Onstar had a people-tracking thing, too. The commercial that gets me weepy is when the adult woman finds her dad sitting on a park bench and he tells her "Your mother loved this park." My heart breaks for him. Yet how lucky he was to find someone to love so deeply.
  11. That whistling "music" in the Dupixent ads annoys the crap out of me, but I do like the new series with people dressed like the background to hide their eczema and then taking off their wraps to display clear skin. I don't care about the message, but I think the background-matching is clever.
  12. I'm curious, not trying to be snarky, but what does she DO with that neuroscience degree besides push some pills on a commercial? I do think it's something to be proud of, but what does ANY neuroscientist do? Especially one who has a job acting in TV series... Like I said, I'm curious.
  13. Somebody started a rumor/conspiracy theory that lauryl sulfate is some kind of poison. Idiots believed it. https://www.chemicalsafetyfacts.org/sodium-lauryl-sulfate/
  14. No DiP tonight. Or next week. PBS Beg-A-Thon instead. Didn't they JUST do one? But I had a good time watching/singing along to pop music of the 50s, followed by the folk music one hosted by Judy Collins and the SmoBro. (I've believed Tommy Smothers is my soul mate since I was about 11 years old.) I look forward to the end of B-A-T and the return of DiP - the preview has Neville in the hospital.
  15. Closed captioning revealed the correct response as "Diamond Ted." I got a good laugh from that one.
