Oh, I'm sorry you had to have that scare. But I'm sure you're okay.

I agree, Mary. I deal with a lot of stupid people these days. And I get it. Sorry, I do see a lot of those memes on Facebook.
Did you see the clown meme? It was supposed to be funny.

Yes, I know that Rowling never said that specifically about Harry/Ginny, but when I hear anyone say that Ginny was "perfect" for Harry, that to me raises "Mary Sue" flags. Ginny was never that well developed as a character, she just seemed manufactured to be "perfect." As for Ron/Hermione, Rowling did say that was wish fulfillment, and I while I get what you're saying, I still think that Ron/Hermione was a bit unrealistic and that Harry/Hermione made more sense narratively. But that's just me. I have the same issues with CW couples.
it's okay. LA drivers are pretty bad.

yea, I do agree with you about Ginny and HG, she just kinda became perfect out of nowhere in the 6th book, Harry barely noticed her before and then all of the sudden, he wanted her. it was so sudden. her character definitely could have been developed better too.

yea, she did. I understand what you're saying and I do love Harry/Hermione as friends and get why people ship them, I just don't feel it for me.

I think my biggest thing with HG and HHr is that I always felt that Harry loved Ron more. while of course the three of them are all best friends, I think Harry preferred spending his time with Ron and always missed him the most.

don't worry, I won't get mad at you and I think we're pretty even on not liking at least one of the others ships so we're good.

Oh, I forgot to ask: Alex, have you heard that Peter Palandjian and Eliza Dushku Palandjian are expecting a kid now? Have you ever watched Orange is the New Black?

We might have to get a new dishwasher soon.

Hi, Dave! OMG, they won't? Then how are they supposed to deal with people who commit theft using their app? I just hope your bank straightens this out. Again, I despise the internet sometimes.

Well, I'm just glad we have better drivers here in Pennsylvania. Oh, and did you hear about the Jussie Smollett scandal, Dave? That actor from Empire who claimed he was the victim of a hate crime? It seems that he actually orchestrated the event and paid his attackers, both of whom were from Nigeria.

Hi, Mary! Yes, I saw it and I'm sorry I forgot to comment. I was replying to everyone. It is a funny meme. The fact that it uses Ronald McDonald is funnier. Yes, I did hear that Eliza was pregnant. But no, I've never watched OITNB. I don't have Netflix.

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope you can afford a new dishwasher. And let us know how that job turns out. A couple of more weeks until you hear back, right?


Hi, Katie! Thanks for admitting that about LA drivers.

Yes, the whole Ginny Weasly thing reminded me of a critique the villain in an old movie called Murder By Death gives all the detectives at the end of the movie, when he starts pointing out all the flaws in their various detective novels and tells one of them, "you introduced characters in the last five pages that were never in the book before!" It's typical of both "Deus ex Machina" and "Mary Sue" storytelling, which I really don't like.

And I get what you mean about Harry and Ron being friends and all that, and it's okay if Harry/Hermione don't click with you. I'm just saying from a narrative perspective it just seems... mediocre, that's all. Rowling was great with the magic and the plotting and all the other stuff, but she wasn't that good with the relationships. I guess it came from her being a single mom and perhaps it affected her perspective. Writers do often base their character relationships on what they know and things they feel personally.

Dave, I was the one who started the conversation about bad drivers considering I was watching YouTube videos about it.

Of course, Ronald McDonald is a clown, so it was used there. He was like Damn guys! You are making me look bad.

When did you know Eliza was pregnant? I just found out 4 days ago.

Do you have a laptop or a Smart TV?

We were supposed to meet some potential roommates to interview them at a local McDonald's, but they never showed up.


Yes.

Mary...OK...I didn't notice that... I rely on the news on tv/ radio more than YT when it comes to traffic and bad driving and accidents

Alex.. Pennsylvanians better be good drivers...there are some areas that have a lot of Hills... or is that Kentucky...another place I've been to?

Hi, Dave! Uhhh, Pennsylvania doesn't just have hills, we have mountains. The Appalachians, remember? And the Pocono Mountains(which are part of the Appalachians) are just north of Philadelphia and Bucks County. Yes, drivers here tend to be a lot better, I've noticed. I've never been to Kentucky, but I think the Appalachians run through there as well, only on the edge of the state.

Hi, Mary! Yeah, poor Ronald having to put up with all this evil clown nonsense. I take it he's not a fan of Stephen King's IT.

I think I heard that Eliza was pregnant on the news last week. And of course I have a laptop. What do you think I'm posting with? But I don't like watching movies or TV on a laptop because... well, of the reasons regarding updates, virus scans, and all the other bull that laptops put you through. The only thing I watch on my laptop is YouTube. Yes, I have a Smart TV, but I just watch regular cable TV with it. Comcast with Xfinity On Demand.

I don't really need or want that Netflix stuff. It sounds fascist to me with companies taking control over shows and movies instead of them being free to anyone. It's just like how so many people are going back to vinyl records and the record industry is suddenly struggling to print more to keep up with the demand because the vinyl comeback was so unexpected. I think people would miss normal TV if everything went streaming.

I'm sorry to hear that about your roommate interview. Do you and your boyfriend need a new roommate soon, or can you afford to wait until you find one that's good? And I hope you hear back from that job soon!

Did you see the gifset I posted? It is the relatable edition of Buffy the Vampire SLayer.

I have a laptop as well. It's a Dell Inspiron 1000. What kind of laptop do you have?

My bf and I like Netflix because it's more free than Satellite. He doesn't like to pay for a service that provides commercials. He also has aa VUDU account. I am thinking about signing up for Hulu when I get income.

We found one, but I wanted a woman roommate rather than a man.

Hi, Dave! Yeah, the Appalachian Mountains are actually older than the Rocky Mountains, but the Rockies are much bigger.

I heard about Harper, Dave. The Phillies passed on Machado.

Hi, Mary! Yeah, I did see them. I'm sorry, Mary. I forgot to comment on them. I especially liked the one where Buffy complained about retail. I agree with her.

I have an HP laptop. I forgot what kind it is. And I get why some people like Netflix and Hulu, but I still don't like being so tied to the internet. I guess too much internet feels like a loss of freedom, which is why I prefer cable TV.

Oh, I see. Yeah, after you last experience I can see why you'd want a woman roommate. I hope this works out, though.

All I have been living with in this house are guys.

Mary...stressful month...someone broke into paypal and stole 60.... I may put in fake numbers on my papal account so it doesn't happen again. I also changed my password.
and with that ...here's the update b/c Alex knows about it:

The transaction was completed so I reported the unauthorized transaction to the bank via their phone number... still really wet and cold outside to go to bank branch. If I get the paperwork on Friday...then I may go to bank on Saturday

OK... probably won't be on FF until after 7...if that
