    U.S. Protests - There's Something Happening Here

    I too think it would be awesome if protestors held little American flags. After all, Trump doesn’t own the flag and yet goes on and on about how he loves it. It would be a real dilemma optics-wise. I also think it would be hilarious if the queer community could somehow make the Q flag their own.

    From Russia With Love (#36) Spring into Summer 2020

    Yagudins skating remains one of my jaw-dropping I-love-this-sport examples, but I've always felt since seeing his banana program years ago that he didn't give a damn about being closed minded. It's a shame.

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    I thought her engagement ring was very classic, and I liked it. The engagement ring new band seems far too small for the size of the carats of main diamonds, and I thought the non-adorned previous band showed the three diamonds off far better. But, then again, Meghan always seems to prefer...

    And Brian Boitano. (I admit I’ve been making some too.).

    What is happening at work?

    I work in a massage studio. We are still taking clients who have doctor referrals for pain. We thought business would slow, and it has a bit but I’m surprised how many doctors there are who are still telling their patients to seek treatment from us. I know things like frozen shoulder must be...

    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    One of the complicated issues I think that needs to be worked out is their private visits. Meghan visited two places in Vancouver talking about women’s issues. Ok, great. But, wait, is she representing the Crown or solely the Sussex foundation? Is her support of these groups under the...

    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    The Dailymail is trashy but it can have good photos and video of royal events. There’s a new video of the Lion King premiere - before the focus was on Meghan talking to Beyoncé but now the attention is on Harry. I’m sure he’d say he’s “joking” with the a Disney CEO about Meghan wanting...

    Royalty Thread #10 -Archie Phase 2 - Bold and Bald Still

    I watched the documentary online. Meghan seems very sweet and caring, well spoken, but naive. The reason the US tabloids weren’t so bad to her was because “Suits” wasn’t going to make tabloids big money. As a royal, there will be aggressive paparazzi here too. I was surprised she didn’t...

    Royalty Thread #10 -Archie Phase 2 - Bold and Bald Still

    How does everyone feel about Meghan’s clip from the ITV documentary? I have mixed feelings. First, I do feel empathy for her. She’s had quite a year and a half and it certainly has had enormous challenges. I think it will play well to the US audience. I feel that by showing emotion and...

    Second Democratic Debate

    I never said any of that. All I commented on was that Harris is capable of connecting with people even if she’s not seen as having a warm personality. Her poll numbers going up show that. Many of my millennial friends have her in the top tier and so do I. But I don’t think any of us feel...

    Second Democratic Debate

    But I don’t think it matters if she’s warm and fuzzy as long as she continues to be able to give quick stories like the child with the fever and the parents debating whether or not to go in the hospital. Another example is when she described the rape victim afraid to report because she’d risk...

    The Pointless and Petty Annoyances Thread

    I think that’s because most Americans grow up with Memorial Day as the beginning of summer, BBQ, day off work, sales at the mall, and so it equals a celebration and not a day for reflection. Sad but true. Our town even has a banner that says Happy Memorial Day to advertise their parade.

    Yes! I thought I was the only one who cringed when Kurt Browning did this.

    The Pointless and Petty Annoyances Thread

    This seems to becoming more popular at least amongst my acquaintances and friends on Facebook - posting a picture or video of your dog with a written internal dialogue. There will be a nice picture of a golden retriever with a tennis ball and then the inane comment “Me zo happy Iz got dee...
