I have to share something about this restaurant! I used to have to go to create some window display in that area and the guy who put the whole display together did a great job so I said "Hey, do you want to grab lunch?" and he suggested Fridays and I said "How about that restaurant down there by the ice skaters" and… » 12/16/14 4:33pm Tuesday 4:33pm

The movie review is exactly what I expected after reading the book. Cheryl creates a shit-ton of problems for herself throughout the whole movie and then expects to be congratulated on her strength in facing those problems. And we're talking about really idiotic problems. Like "I bought the wrong size hiking boots… » 12/16/14 1:02pm Tuesday 1:02pm

Agree. It had all of the ingredients for a very cool show but I want to like it more than I actually like it. I keep waiting for it to get really good and it isn't. Twisty was a good idea and they could have done so much more with him. So far in this season, it seems like whenever something starts to get good, the… » 12/04/14 5:41pm 12/04/14 5:41pm

At least feel bad for his neighbors. A friend of mine lives on his street. She only realized this when a local TV station released the address back in August. They later apologized and took it down. But she had people driving down her street for weeks. It died down but I'm sure it will start up again now. » 11/27/14 1:59pm 11/27/14 1:59pm

Douche chills is the perfect term. Yes, everytime I see his smug face, I want to punch him and I honestly just don't want to laugh at his jokes because he seems so smug. Che is terrible but I was willing to be patient enough to let him get used to the gig but then someone here mentioned all of the backlash on his… » 11/19/14 10:09am 11/19/14 10:09am

I had fond memories of the Peanuts specials as a kid but watching them now? Bleh. They're so dreary and boring and I forgot how much time gets sucked up with the Red Baron fantasy sequences. Also, they are all assholes to Charlie Brown. » 11/18/14 10:49pm 11/18/14 10:49pm

System is absolutely broken. My son was just prescribed medicine. I have decent health coverage - United Healthcare. Doctor picked the best medicine for him but the pharmacist says it will cost $330 a month because it's not covered. Only two similar medications are covered. Doctor picks the better of the two - only… » 11/18/14 5:31pm 11/18/14 5:31pm

To be honest, I think he's hateable because it's not a terribly true-to-life portrayel of Aspergers. I work with a few young adults who have aspergers and while they have their moments (and who doesn't?) they never veer anywhere close to Max territory. » 11/14/14 12:31pm 11/14/14 12:31pm

I'm probably GenX but I remember my first few years out of work this is what I did. I made nothing as a journalist but my end of the month paycheck was pretty much my "rent check" meaning I'd have about 100 left after that and then on the 15th that would be my check that I'd pay the rest of my bills and have some… » 11/12/14 4:06pm 11/12/14 4:06pm

No-nonsense? Cold?

I also love Olive. I wouldn't say she's humorless because she finds certain things funny but she certainly doesn't suffer fools. She's not going to pretend just to make a situation more comfortable for everyone. She's not mean, really. Her mean moments are rarely a goal but moreso a side effect.… » 11/10/14 1:48pm 11/10/14 1:48pm
