Yessss how brilliant to use string cheese sticks! Here I was already worrying about how to find mozzarella in anything other than ball form from my local shops. Thanks for this recipe, I can't wait to try it. :) Eid Mubarak!
There has got to be some kind of maritime division, perhaps. A boat full of Reapers, trawling around the seven seas.
Yo ho yo ho a reaper's unlife for me, etc..
Sam is definitely a whole pile of womanizing homophobic creepiness. His attraction-via-arguing with the ~feisty~ leading women characters leads to some very uncomfortable misogyny and threats of domestic violence that are supposed to be funny in context because he isn't going to go through with it, but how the hell is she supposed to know that? There was an episode where all the people at the bar encouraged him "oh she wants you, you need to be powerful and take control," and it was all awful no-means-yes bullshit and fortunately after he'd kicked down a door and ordered his ladylove into the bedroom, she fake-called the cops (hell I'd've called the cops for real, much less continued dating him,) to teach him a lesson and get him to back off. *facepalm*
Woody is amazing, but Sam is an awful, awful character.

I saw Cynthia Stevenson in an old re-run of Cheers the other day (playing the secretary to Norm's fake business partner when he starts his own business and has to create a hard-ass counterpart to get his employees to do any work while Norm remains the Good Guy,) and it felt weeeird.
I try not to use my phone on platforms, now. On the upside, I get more reading of actual books done on my commute.
I saw a kid lose his grip on his phone and it slid over the edge of a platform and under a Tube train. While the train was moving.
Uuuugh Rube and his beautiful foodie monologues.
I feel like instead of being whoever yells FIRST in any given thread, I can be the person bringing up the rear honking LAST.
This feels right.
DEAD. LIKE. ME.
Love it, but want to take a drink every time I see a Vancouver landmark in the middle of a show pretending to be set in Seattle. A loving, knowing-wink sort of drink, not a depressed one.
omg so late to the party I feel like I've fallen off the face of the internet for the last few months D: but YAAAAY LONDON PEEPS!
I...don't even know what I'd say to people. I'm not even proper a proper Londoner--I occasionally make eye contact on the Tube, still. And usually regret it.
Also, Mark, (probably very late and someone else has already mentioned this but it's late and I'm all addled by cold meds,) might the hot air balloon alternate universe show have been Tin Man? Because I was only half paying attention while my housemate was watching it but that sounds like it might be the show. I don't even know if there was a hot air balloon in that one but I feel like one wouldn't be out of place.
