  1. EVERY traffic report I did today was wrong. EVERY. TIME. I did a report on a backup that had no apparent cause, we'd get the info on the accident that caused it. Once a report is sent, I can't fix it or recall it. Then listeners have to wait another 20-30 minutes to hear the update. Today's timing was hilariously off for every report. People in the Puget Sound area are cursing my name today and I want to eat worms.

  2. I wish I were more like you, whatever it is that allows you to process death so cleanly.

    My mom has a rare cancer and is opting not to treat it and I am falling apart. And I'm an only child so I can't afford to feel this just yet. I'm barely getting better about my Dad's death four years ago

    I haven't watched it, but I think you mean Hulu. Roku is basically a device/operating system that allows you to stream from various providers.

    Roku is also a channel.


  4. We're in big fire danger here so I was dreading the weekend but it was tame! A few big blasts on Saturday, then a number of celebrations on Sunday night but it didn't sound like a war zone and it did not last all weekend. Pleasantly surprised. And all our big shows were canceled


  5. sorry-on hulu :(.

    It's in the fashion of The Leftovers in that something supernatural happens but we never discover what that is-we just see the reactions of the various people to it. I like it as much as the Leftovers but with only 12 shows to compare, I can't say it's just as good. It never gets 'going' as much as The Leftovers did. I feel like I was just starting to  get used to the characters.



  6. I was hipped to this Australian TV series by a friend and I binged both seasons, twice, that's how much I like it.

    NOW, I find out they've been cancelled-there will be no season 3 and I am sad.

    Did you watch it? Is there any hope of this getting picked up elsewhere and continued?

    It's in the way of Lost and that show with Jennifer Aniston's second husband (Justin Theroux?)in which part of the population disappears-it presents  supernatural premise and is basically about what people do to deal with it but this one involves eternal (maybe) youth.

    Michigan reached the vaccine threshold to have all the remote workers return to the office two weeks from now.

    I don’t know how I feel about all my coworkers invading my space.

    Our company is 'remodeling' and cutting our footprint by 75%. Nobody will get their own desk or studio now, it's all shared space. This is going to be a nightmare.

    Our governor is looking at June 3oth or earlier to 'open' our State.

    I don't want to go back to the office. I miss seeing my co-workers but the advantages of working from home are just too good-no commute, kitties all the time, I can make breakfast and take a shower as I work. It's my own equipment so I sound better on air. I can light a dozen candles ( which I cannot do at work) I can do laundry. My product is better because I'm happier.

    I'm also not down with sharing space until this pandemic is over.

    And if I have to move to Florida, I won't be in the studio anyway.


    Don't let them make me go back!~

    I done a fair share of sleeping around in my 20s. I can't recall the number of people who've bumped uglies with me. Not that I was one to count.. but if I had to hazard a guess I'd say I've slept with over 20 people but less than 40. Met my wife when I was 29 turning 30.  She blew every other sexual encounter out of the water. I'll spare the details but man, she's awesome. We've been together 7 years now and the only itch I get is for her. 

    Counting? I'll tell you what I told my first ex-husband; at least 100, 75 I could name


  9. I WAS going to post my monthly "this place sucks lately" bullshit but damn, we gettin' real.

    My local paper is running weekly dating columns lately, asking residents their experiences in specific areas-worst first dates, worst restaurant dates, oddest break ups, and while they've been awesome to read each Sunday, they pale in comparison to the Dating Life of Tank. I imagine the 100% versions of these to be incredible. I like the LA James Bond vibe.

    I was Tank-active in my 20s (NO regrets) and had some hookups during the ends of both my marriages but have been celibate now for longer than I care to admit. I got that longing for a connection a while ago. I don't look down on casual sexers-never have-I just don't feel like doing that any longer and it's not easy finding a guy who wants to be permanent with a fat, old, foul-mouthed woman with cats who drinks and gets high every day. Go figure. But I could tell you about my past. My favorite sex story (as it were) is a friend who called one night for a reference-I knew the woman he wanted to sex and had me tell her on the phone how good I thought he was. He did not perform well for her and my recommendations got a bad mark from her.


  10. I've had both of mine (Pfizer). #1 gave me a little bit of a sore arm the next day. #2 kicked my ass. Exactly 24 hours after the shot, I started feeling sick and getting a gross headache. That lasted all day but I was fine the next day when I woke up.


  11. 'We view justice as a system of "what they deserved" where what someone "deserves" is often more about their individual demographics and characteristics rather than the circumstances surrounding a single event and the event itself.'


    We don't really WANT a system that rehabilitates, either, we only want a punishment system.

    My guess is Chauvin walks and we have riots in at least 6 major US cities

    This is way to open. I need something— genre, era, drama vs sitcom. I just can’t! How do I put Agent Cooper, Spock, BoJack Horseman, Darlene Connor, and Saul Goodman on the same list?

    Darlene Connor!!! I'm thinking of the episode in which Fisher beats up Jackie and Dan walks into the house, asking Darlene what's going on and she says something about Jackie upstairs after the doctor gave her something to make her sleep. Dan asks 'what about DJ?" and Darlene says "I didn't know I had that option"

    Who do you think is/are the best character(s) to ever grace the small screen?

    My top 3 in no particular order are:

    Karen Walker (Will & Grace)
    Ron Swanson (Parks & Rec)
    David Rose (Schitt's Creek)

    I just watched a couple episodes of Will and Grace on purpose and I don't know how you could deal with Karen's voice.


  14. In no particular order:


    Dr. Who-who can't love a character that can die and be reborn as anyone??

    Walter White-I tired of the show early on but was there ever another character like him?

    Jax Teller-I just found the character HAWT and I don't even care for blondes.

    Melinda Gordon-okay, not really. I just want to own an antique store and wear designer clothes every day and have everyone around me help me with my ghost problems in my candle-lit home with my fabulous, attentive doctor husband.

    The Connors-all of them individually and with each other. Darlene was probably my favorite-they gave her the darkest lines but the best. Dan and Roseanne together were the best couple on TV IMHO but they all played so well with each other I forgot they were actors frequently. Jackie was so real to me, the sister who hung out constantly and never had a real job.


    Now I'm gonna read all of yours.



  15. I'm seeing TV commercials lately in which the person speaking looks off camera-as if there are two cameras in play and they've 'gone to' cam 2 far too early. I find this disconcerting and a bit like talking to someone with eyes that each point in different directions-which one do I follow?

    Is this some new millennial video technique or am I just old? Please tell me what the thinking is behind this, thanks.
