  1. I have never gone to a High School Reunion, in part because there is no possibility of meeting the cast of Romy & Michelle, but really because ugh. I have bumped into people from High School however. One ex-classmate was amazed how my wife and I were still together when we had started dating at 15 years old. They asked, “How do you do it?” I quickly responded with, “Mostly from behind.”

  2. Minor updates! KP - still all good in the hood. She hangs out here around the kid now. He's polite. JP - same situation, see her once every couple months for a night Valley Mom - progressing fine. Also very chill. She makes homemade soap and sent KP a gift bag. KP responded by making her a papercraft junk journal. This so much better than having to pretend KP doesn't exist. Blue and I are still cuddle buds. Haven't seen Curly again, but we text. Going out next week with a girl who is married to another woman and is getting a hall pass to have some dude experiences

  3. Ugg no thank you to high school reunions. I didn't like those people 20 years ago, I sure as hell won't like them now. My husband's 10-year was a douchebag convention. It was kind of entertaining since I was an outsider but his best friend made a drunk ass of himself.

  4. Having just rewatched the whole run, it really does shift once Chuck dies tonally. I remember the first season feeling like WAIT THIS ISN'T SAUL WHAT IS HAPPENING, and then realized it was a slow burn. When he first started wearing the colorful suits to get himself fired from Davis and Main it locked in how slow of a burn it would be. I've honestly never seen a prequel manage to do so well as giving us really in depth and new stuff for characters we know the fate of. Saul and Mike's histories are now so complex and interesting. I do recall one plot point in BB, that Saul only then realize

  5. I went to my ten year and it was half great and half upsetting. I skipped the 20 because by then FB had me informed. Mostly I want to go because now I’m so much cooler than most of them.

  6. I've been to Ireland and the ROI! I'd like to go back so I can visit Derry, I guess I just want to go since I love the Derry Girls show.

  7. I think that's one of the things I don't like about Discovery, they don't let you get to know the side characters. Like the two helmsman (helmswomen?), I barely remember their names half the time. And after watching three seasons, I still don't know much about them.

  8. I'm spending lots of time on Tik Tok lately and am seeing this a lot. Yes, you're Pro Choice! Nobody likes abortion or thinks it's good but those of us who recognize that it's sometimes a medical necessity are Pro Choice-no technicality about it. My biggest problem with all of this is I think too many are making this ABOUT abortion and it's not-it's about the intrusion of politics into our most intimate lives. Politicians have no Right, IMHO, making this decision for any woman, let alone all of us

  10. I was raised in England until moving to the United States in 1984. I have been back to the UK several times prior to being a parent (so decades ago now). Hmm. This is probably not going to be helpful at all, so here’s my apologies for that now. Sorry. I can say that the best moments on our trips home were always unscripted and a bit chaotic. It’s possible however that not being on or enjoying a lot of tour based things was due to our budget being a bit tight, rather than tours being lame. One of the most chaotic things was my Ma getting us a rental car and then that rental barely bei

  11. I hear that! I didn't end up going to any of the reunions for that reason. I came close to it on my 30th, but after seeing the FB group, I lost interest. Some people's posts revealed they were the same douches they were in HS.

  12. The thing about the guides tours is you don't have to worry about a damn thing. I did it when I went to France when I was 16, it was great. There is still opportunities to slow down and enjoy some culture. On the other hand, I've done a few foreign countries on our own, and its a lot more stressful and I find we don't get as much done as I want because my fellow travelers don't have the energy. My mother in law loves European river cruises. She also likes to go off the beaten path and is over confident about her navigation abilities though lol. I used Educational Tours and they might be E

  13. I had much schadenfreude when I saw the FB 30th reunion group! It was perversely satisfying seeing some of the popular folks who were too cool for school and stuck up ending up looking like they got beat down with the ugly stick.

  14. Thanks to FB I’ve seen the train wreckery. I mean even being a bit overweight I am holding up really well compared to some of those people!

  15. I basically have no predictions whatsoever for what will happen to who. Outside of, of course, y’know, obvious stuff that’s demanded by the constraints of this being a prequel to already established events we’ve seen for ourselves. The show’s had such a consistent capacity to successfully and satisfyingly surprise both in terms of able execution of storytelling gambits which I would’ve assumed before the fact to be absolutely totally no go areas — things like a secret origin story for Mike, or bringing Gus Fring into things in a substantial fashion, or offing Chuck — and also just the standard

  16. Honestly it's the only reason I'd ever consider going to a high school reunion. But I didn't go to the ten year, twenty was during COVID, and now I'm moving 1500 miles away from my high school instead of the 350 I am now, so even if I DID want to, no way it'll happen now. In other words I want to hear ALL THE MOM BANGING STORIES SETH. Banging moms rules.

  17. Having may not be as good as wanting. I don't know about your class, but when I saw a bunch of pics of my class prior to the 30th, I was like YIKES! Time was not kind to many a cheer leader and high school crushes for me! Not saying I am a prize, but damn. Some were scary.

  18. Yesterday I had a 2nd interview for a decent job that's in a different aspect of real estate than I'm used to. I heard back first thing this morning. Apparently he was "very impressed" and would like to meet me in person next week. So this is sounding good.

  21. I don’t think the opposition to abortion have any cares about what SCOTUS does at this point. https://www.reuters.com/world/us/louisiana-legislators-advance-bill-classifying-abortion-homicide-2022-05-05/ Probably just going to keep getting “worse”. In quotes because I guess some people don’t see this as a problem. Afterthought: Is it perfectly ironic that out of the 17 interactions in this thread 13 are by men?

  22. I am personally pro-life but I don't think outlawing abortion universally is a good answer. Unfortunately, there are real cases where a fetus is not viable or a woman's life is actually endangered by pregnancy. And its such a political issue that I absolutely do not trust the legal system to determine that properly. I think we are setting ourselves up for even worse maternal care in this country. I do feel like this is a control issue, not a moral issue.

  23. It was a political decision posing as a legal decision for 50 years. The Court, in 1973, started with the decision that abortion should be legalized and then tried to find a way to make that happen. Even Amanda used to talk about how she was extremely pro-choice but the decision itself was legally horrible. Don't be surprised when political decisions change. You can absolutely disagree with the decision, but the abortion argument has been filled with nonsense for decades, including the initial decision in 1973.
