I think people are imprecise because they assume you will know what they meant...even though their phrasing is so vague you know it could mean a lot of different things.

Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022) I saw this film at the theater, and I thought it was too long at the time, but I enjoyed it. Watching it again on DVD, and the length does not seem that long, and I still enjoyed it. I can understand where it may not be for everyone. Is this a film that appe...

It should be administered by a psychologist who works with Autism and with patients your age...and, ideally, who fits into your insurance co...

Last night we watched: WereWolf of London [1935] <=> "Beware! Terror strikes in the night!" Essentially, a good drama. Some observations from the IMDb trivia for this film: > - This film made up much of its werewolf mythology out of whole cloth. ...

The turkey, corn, and mashed sweet potatoes were very good. The stuffing wasn't bad, either. Thanks! I hope you got some good food, too.

This evening we're watching stuff and I'm sipping Romana Black Sambuca. :)
