A Girl Like Her 9/10

On Netflix.  I bawled my eyes out throughout, maybe because I am raising teenaged girls, maybe because high school sucked so bad for me, maybe because it was just really well done.

A Girl Like Her ~ 9/10

Whoooooa.
Why did I start my weekend this way??  :|
Thanks for that though. Why is it low-rated on Netflix? So good.

+3 I saw something new that expanded my mind.

red wine and beer on a wound ? i'd rather use vodka ;-)
I think he's talking about whiskey, not beer ;)  Perfectly good waste of a whiskey, unless it's Jack Daniel's.

Infusion doesn't infer topical application, btw.
Infer means to draw a conclusion from non-explicit information, what you mean is imply, which is to suggest in a similar way. When I write $300, for instance, you infer that I mean $300.00, and that the decimal point is implied. It's called an implicit decimal in algebra/chemistry.

An infusion treatment, in a medical sense, would mean injecting it into the wounds or intravenously.

I'm not sure if this thread should be renamed Terror of Morvis, Fear of Henning, or Fear and Terror of MorHennvising.

People. I'm trying to sleep here. I mean not now, but maybe one day again. You could open a "WHAT THE AAAAAAAAUGH!" shop and charge people serious coin to look in the store to be rendered relentlessly wakeful.

Freakin' nightmares, the lot a ya.


OMG am I doing it? Am I finally Morvising?!
So proud.   :greatgift:

I remember that beast! I tried to get our purchasing Dept to get something like or it for me when I was a coder. No luck. I did get a second monitor though, and the laptop was able to drive two monitors and it's own 17" screen, all I had more real estate than anybody..

I wasn't as good a coder, but I had a better toy. :)

Depending on her dad's health (he's back in post hospital rehab, just a month after the last round) Mrs. B. May be available. I can't snore and don't move much while sleeping, so if it's bunk-mates, I'm game. Also game to move to another room and bathroom. I'm getting a lot easier to maintain most of the time.

CA:CW (9/10)

Still loses a point for stupid shakeycam in the first act, and another half point off for the shakeycam bits in the second act. Gained a 1/2 point for Spidey being better the second time, a plot that benefits from a second viewing, and even more enjoyable character arcs when you know what's coming and are thinking about notices and plans.

So, here's an irony for you.  For the study that found the GI=111 for baked potato, I just recalculated the GI by applying the currently recommended method of calculating the area under the curve to the data in the paper, and guess what: the GI is only 97.  So the 111 really was erroneous, at least when the modern method of calculation is used.
