Hi, everyone! I am trying again to become more involved here. I'm sorry, but the last few years have really taken a tole on me.
Here..... The highlights----
Terry and I are still stuck living with my insane parents.
Terry now has had a job for a couple of months.
I managed to have my art on display at a local coffee house for a month. (Jittery Joe's)
Several of my goats have died, and several more have been born.
I finagled my way into a therapy workshop last fall, which has done wonders for me. The most severe agoraphobic episodes (panic attacks) have subsided, so that I can at least go outside without starting to pass out.
I no longer have ANY connection to my artist friend who taught me how to paint, and turned out to be an alcoholic and compulsive liar. Last I heard, he attacked his current (female) roommate with a wooden milk crate, & continued posting on facebook the whole rest of the day like nothing happened.
I'm STILL trying to trade my way to a HOME.
I've proclaimed myself a "Consulting Detective", though I still don't know how I'll ever actually be able to DO anything, without all the official pieces of meaningless paper that say I'm allowed to do stuff.
And, I've found the ONLY thing that's EVER measured up to Millennium in my mind now. BBC's "Sherlock", which I've been keeping up with now for several years and was just dazzled by season 3.
It may take me a bit to collect my thoughts.... I am quite mad, you know!
I used to live in a faded, pale yellow house!
I'm sure there are a LOT of other things I could bring up.... but I'm too tired to think right now. GREAT topic! Must come back, tomorrow!
P.S. Oh, Terry told me that the Angels in the Blue Rose tea, mentioned in "Midnight of the Century" was a reference to "Red Rose" tea, which has little figurines in it..... and that his grandmother had collected them for years.... So now WE do, too! (No angles, yet, but lots of other cool things!)
I'll have to ponder this one.
Same here. Great topic!!!!
Ya-know, this link is now even FUNNIER, in retrospect! https://www.tor.com/blogs/2012/08/sherlock-season-3-episodes-revealed?et_cid=29448600&et_rid=521413077&linkid=http%3a%2f%2fwww.tor.com%2fblogs%2f2012%2f08%2fsherlock-season-3-episodes-revealed&utm_campaign=
***SPOILERS for anyone who has not seen Season 3, episode 3, His Last Vow***
The reference to, in the original books, Sherlock retiring to keep bees??? When, in the episode, "His Last Vow" (rather than the book title, "His Last Bow"), the woman Sherlock double crosses (who double crosses HIM as well), says she just bought a cottage, and that it has "bee hives.... but I'm getting rid of those"... Funny, huh?
Erin, I really do hope you find somewhere else to live.
Here's a bit more news on "The After":
Thanks, Libby. It's not so much a matter of finding somewhere else to live, but coming up with a way to make MONEY, so that we actually have some options! :D
OMG.... I SOOO feel like I'm cheating on Millennium by coming here to wax poetic about Sherlock, but WOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!!!!! I've been so starved for something of creative SUBSTANCE, with no new Millennium.... (I'll wear my DVDs out one day, I'm sure!)... that this series has been SHOCKING in every way! Even though there's only ever been 9 episodes total.... I feel as engaged in Sherlock as I ever have with Millennium! I even wrote a little "mini-review" kind of thing this past week that I posted to facebook.... (*blush*)
I'm interested! Can you tell me a little bit about how challanging it is? Because, while this is something I will probably always want to learn more about, as you may remember, I get pretty easily overwhelmed. Thoughts?
Thank you! I FEEL like I've dropped off the end of the earth myself. These last 2 years have been.... well.... let's just say it's nothing I'll want to repeat, and the sooner I get out of this house with these crazy people, and back into a sane, managable, stable, CLEAN home of my own with Terry again.... the BETTER!!!
I'd started to think Chris Carter had dropped off the end of the earth.
(as, I am sure, a lot of you here, did as well!)
Hi, Seesthru! LOVE the name! It's wonderful to see someone new here! It always liven's things up here! I look forward to getting to know you through your posts here! :)
I always thought there was something creepy about water coolers!!!!!!!!!!
Welcome back, Maxx!
Yes. It actually makes me glad that they AREN'T well-known yet. Popular dogs always end up getting the short end of the stick, eventually. (weak pun noticed but not intended)
Thanks for this, "Earthnut". Someone here asked me years ago what breed of dog this was, (since I seem to be viewed as local dog expert...haha), and I responded Belgian malinois! Most people think these dogs are some weird kind of German Shep., but they're not. I actually quite like BOTH breeds.... but the Belgian malinois seems to have a grace about them that was a perfect element for this episdoe.
Wow... that Was beautiful.
Laura, my heart goes out to you. Warm thoughts be with you and your family.
Ahhh..... and it is, again.... October..... just past 10-13..... the night birds are calling, the candles are burning....
It is almost time for the *Curse*!
THREE movies???? There was the 1998 movie, "Fight The Future", and "I Want to Believe".... 10 years later in 2008. I am unaware of a 3rd X Files movie, however.
I must admit to being hooked on Criminal Minds as my "need Millennium" fix.... and even MORE hooked on Dr. Spencer Reid!
Wow.... bask in those UpBeat VIBES!
this is why I'd like to be sitting on the front porch of MY home..... (which is "pending" for lack of a more upbeat term.. haha), smoking and drinking Rum mixed with Pineapple soda when the end comes!
aaaaand, this is why the idea of buying stocks and bonds has always seemed rather pointless to me.
Oh, I'll join you Erin on the porch and have a smoke or two. (I am trying with these new-fangled electronic ciggies, but they don't seem to work so well.)
We don't seem to have porches here in the UK like a lot of houses in the US that I've seen on TV. I'd love to be able to sit outside, in a rocking chair maybe, and just watch the world go by. And I'd meet more of my neighbours that way.
As for food - I love the idea of BBQ ribs, but can I put in a plea for pumpkin pie, please? I've never tasted that.
I don't suppose that Blueboy minds in the least bit that we've kind of hijacked his thread. It's a bit irreverent, but what's the point of the end-times if that means leaving behind a freezer full of great food and cellar full of good wine?
That's always been my thinking! And, it seems "Blue Boy" also is in the spirit of things! I can certainly use a bit of levity, after this past week!
But in 3 parts ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
LOL! Thanks! I needed that!
ARGGG...tis true matey. its all about the booty [ and not the rear-end kind]. the only good thing with multiple movies is attention to details otherwise lost.
(I'm so glad the Pirate thing's catching on!)
Wow. It's sad, but you did hit the nail right on the head.
O.K. We all need a good dose of Millennium.
in MillenniuM Discussion
Wow! We DO all need a good dose of Millennium! I'm remembering this thread from years-past (at least, it seems that way!) and now I pop in here and we're talking about dairy products!
Oh, trust me. I understand. It's all so long ago and so far away, now. But, my GOOPTA I do love coming back here to a familiar place!
Maybe we all need to pick a date, to start re-watching MM, starting from the beginning.... One a week.
In the meantime, has anyone else been so starved for Millennium they've branched out, into things like BBC's "Sherlock" or the current FX miniseries, "Fargo"?
