    Hence why I'm waiting a little longer so I can stick my long legs out in front or to the side... cause I always have to pretty much fold them into my neck in a manner of speaking.

    Another good Sheldon moment with my brother is he has a very nice neighbor who comes to visit and if she sees him through the door, just walks in. I say "if only there was some way to keep that from happening" but it goes right over his head. But then I worry that he doesn't lock his door. Sigh.
    LOL!!

    I have to lock my door, but that's a single woman thing, not a Sheldon thing.

    It's a common sense thing. My doors are always locked and you couldn't find a safer neighborhood than where I live. Well except for gated communities. Bro lives in the country but has a new housing development right next door. He goes out back and fiddles in his shed and leaves the house unlocked. You could back up a truck and load it up and he'd never know. Sigh.

    I will, and nope... I started season 7 so I should be able to clear that out of the way in the next three weeks if I stick to 3 episodes a week, especially now that all off my TV-series have ended their seasons (except for S.H.I.E.L.D. which only just started again).

    I have a "phone screening" interview at 10am. Ugh!! I wish I could just fall into a job without having to do the whole job search thing.

    ETA: Well, my screening was very brief. They wanted someone with 3 years experience. She said she'd keep my resume on file in case something comes up with less experience needed. What's funny is that they contacted me, not the other way around. They saw my resume on Indeed and contacted me. So they clearly didn't read the resume too clearly because it's easy to see I have no experience in this new field. Oh well. I'm not terribly disappointed. It was a long drive.

    Thank you!! I get crap from my family for locking the door when I'm home, but I think it's just smart.

    Consensus on Tumblr seems to be hate, but the people I follow have hated most everything with season 8.

    I wasn't disappointed either. And it's like I commented on Twitter & Tumblr, I actually enjoyed it better than I did Endgame.

    Err... yes, I guess I am.

    Though, I'm not going to hop skip between SG-1 and Atlantis when I reach season 8. That would confuse me too much.
    So, I'll have a brief moment with Elizabeth and then back to SG-1 until season 10, after which it's three glorious seasons of Atlantis, and 2... err... not so glorious. Then straight into SGU and Infinity, and then Origins... at which point I have come full circle and we're 3 years on. By which I will have taken 5 years or so to do this rewatch, so color me confused when I see people who do an SG-1 rewatch in only a couple of months.

    Well I applied to 10 different jobs this morning, and I already got a call on one of them. We're going to set up an interview in the next few days. This one is downtown in Providence so I'm not too thrilled about that either. I got spoiled with working within 3 miles of my house for so many years. I don't mind the drive as much as I mind the highway. I've already looked up how to get there taking the back roads.

    That makes sense, to not hop back and forth. It would get too confusing. To watch 10 seasons of SG-1 that quickly - wow, that is some serious binge watching.

    Okay, I've tried all my tricks the past few days and I can't reply to specific quotes, so here goes plan B.

    FH- Five days break?! Awesome. Hope you enjoyed the catsitting.

    SR- I have not watched Young Sheldon, but coming off the feels from the BBT finale I'm thinking it's time to dive in. We have a couple of teenage Sheldon's in our life, not as smart but all the quirks and habits. Def not a comedy, but not Sheldon on steroids rigid yet, but there are moments. That must be hard to have someone so close not be able to empathize.

    GoT
    Spoiler:
    So. Many. Questions. Have you seen that list that is cycling? That's me with all of them. Why did Bran not warn them about Dany? Why did they bother making Jon a Targaryen? Why is there still a Night's Watch? Why did Arya's history/training turn her into an explorer (though she has been all over, I suppose)? Why can't Bran tell her what' is west of Westeros? Why didn't Brienne go back with Sansa? And why was Brienne's single solo scene in that epp dedicated to a man who betrayed her instead of showing her getting appointed to a prestigious position, c'mon male writers (though it was her most important friendship, the cheating/leaving her notwithstanding). Questioning aside- All the questions and everything that could have been...I could see it all coming together this way. Jon back north of the wall is fitting. Sansa as Queen of the North- fitting. Tyrion hand of the King- fitting. Still not a fan of Bran on the throne or Arya's voyaging, had we seen some indication of that interest sooner, it would have been better. Sigh. At least Jon finally pet Ghost, damn it. Now Martin just needs to finish the books so we can see his vision play out.


    JT-2 sorry about the phone screening. Really, it is a poor reflection on their managers or HR department to reach out to you having seen your resume and then give you that response. Something and somewhere better will come along for certain.
    Thanks to Copter for my signature art!

    Well, 3 days off + 2 days weekend... and all to myself... and Noa the cat who has been a good girl up until an hour ago when she decided to chase the spider in the bedroom and nearly knocked the mirror off the wall. If that were to fall I would have some splainin' to do.

    So, GoT...
    Spoiler:
    Why did Bran not warn them about Dany? Well, he only sees the past, so he wouldn't have known what she hadn't done yet.

    Why did they bother making Jon a Targaryen? That hasn't been revealed in the books yet, but I'm assuming it will be, as apparently one of the things Martin asked prospective TV producers/showrunners was "Who is Jon Snow's mother?". D&D must have answered that correctly since they got the job. So whatever Martin's reasons for making him a Targaryen, I guess we'll have to wait for the books.

    Why is there still a Night's Watch? I don't quite get that, either. Tyrion's line about there needing to be a place for bastards and criminals to go serve in exile is a good point, but without the threat of the White Walkers, they don't seem to have any real purpose beyond that.

    Why did Arya's history/training turn her into an explorer (though she has been all over, I suppose)? Why can't Bran tell her what' is west of Westeros? Arya's always been the adventurous type, and she even talked (briefly) about what might be west of Westeros and wanting to see it (this was back when she was in Braavos hanging out with that actress). As for Bran, his knowledge is only of Westeros, as I recall.

    Why didn't Brienne go back with Sansa? And why was Brienne's single solo scene in that epp dedicated to a man who betrayed her instead of showing her getting appointed to a prestigious position, c'mon male writers (though it was her most important friendship, the cheating/leaving her notwithstanding). Haven't got a clue. I have no objection in spirit to her becoming the first female Commander of the Kingsguard, that part was awesome (as was seeing Pod as her second), and the book about the Kingsguard has been pointed out a couple of times throughout the series, so I guess this was supposed to be a callback to that.

    As for Bran on the throne, I think Tyron's thinking was that since Bran knows the real truth of all the successes and mistakes in Westeros's past (unlike those "official" histories written by the Maesters, just look at that "Song of Ice and Fire" book that Sam brought to Tyrion from the Citadel--not a mention of Tyrion's role in events, which does smack of the kind of bias and political motives that have twisted historical accounts in our world as well), he can use that knowledge to lead Westeros into the future.

    And yay, Ghost got his head scritches!

    Sparky is on screen. Therefore, it is canon. Elizabeth is still out there. And John WILL bring her home.

Arya's always been the adventurous type, and she even talked (briefly) about what might be west of Westeros and wanting to see it (this was back when she was in Braavos hanging out with that actress). As for Bran, his knowledge is only of Westeros, as I recall.

    Why didn't Brienne go back with Sansa? And why was Brienne's single solo scene in that epp dedicated to a man who betrayed her instead of showing her getting appointed to a prestigious position, c'mon male writers (though it was her most important friendship, the cheating/leaving her notwithstanding). Haven't got a clue. I have no objection in spirit to her becoming the first female Commander of the Kingsguard, that part was awesome (as was seeing Pod as her second), and the book about the Kingsguard has been pointed out a couple of times throughout the series, so I guess this was supposed to be a callback to that.

    As for Bran on the throne, I think Tyron's thinking was that since Bran knows the real truth of all the successes and mistakes in Westeros's past (unlike those "official" histories written by the Maesters, just look at that "Song of Ice and Fire" book that Sam brought to Tyrion from the Citadel--not a mention of Tyrion's role in events, which does smack of the kind of bias and political motives that have twisted historical accounts in our world as well), he can use that knowledge to lead Westeros into the future.

    And yay, Ghost got his head scritches!


    Spoiler:
    Face palm on Bran. See- the things I forget when they take year long breaks and Bran does (mostly) nothing but zone out in the current season. I kind of want to re-read the books. So many things that I've forgotten that were never brought into the show or shown in the detail the length of the books allowed. And cheers to Brienne for sure for a woman snatching that position. That would have been good scene to see, scenes really. Her getting the appointment (and hopefully another giant cheesy smile from her) and then a conversation between her and Sansa.

    Lol, I missed this my first go around. Love the mental image. Cats chasing bugs. One of my favorite things to laugh at as long as there is no collateral damage. Glad the mirror survived.
