This was too big a dose for such a small bird and she slept for several days. She woke up in NYC totally shocked to be there. Nah. Just kidding. ; - )

I was really afraid that Adam Driver was gonna honestly upset - his performance was convincing in that I still don't know if he's legitimately gonna file a restraining order or something. Still, I love John Oliver (PLEASE don't come out as a crazy political racist, fingers crossed!!!)

My husband did weeks of research to find the most glorious affordable artificial tree he could find and set it up before Thanksgiving (to make sure it was OK) and up it stayed! I drew the line at decorating it before now, but it is beautiful w/o any decor at all! No, this year, we needed the best.tree.ever!

    Wei XiongWei XiongMåned siden
  • This probably ain't gonna be popular, but here goes- Of course Seth likes the Adam Driver bit. He's the guy who was jamming that pic of the talking captain (among other lame running gags) on the quarantined version of his show. Yeah, even when he was getting neg feedback, he was like, "I'll show you," and wouldn't let up. So whether the audience likes it or not, what the F were we gonna do? Not watch the show, entirely? No. Both Seth and John Oliver are funny and informative, so I put up with the occasional crap. And John's explanation or defense of continuing to do it is based on the live audience's NEGATIVE reaction. So, John is saying, "Oh, you don't like it, watch this." But heck, it's their show(s). Some similarity- Frank Zappa (who I was/am a giant fan of) did something similar in live concerts, playing 5 notes from the song Louie Louie over and over again until the audience groaned. It was mean spirited and he was calling the audience (aaah, his fans, who paid money to see him) stupid. Sitting in the audience, I saw what was coming and thought, "Frank, in this case, you are not smarter than me." To see Seth and John so smug and happy about this? It makes me sad when people find satisfaction in annoying others.

  • @UCbWg5nV65R7qH9OCROZXAZw Will see how this 40 plus year in government service Biden has done very little to show the American people what he has done as a civil servant to better our lives. Will he fight for the American people or go an apologize to other countries like Obama did and made us depend on ther will to control our economy. Here i am no job no income lost everything. When China introduced this virus to the world whose to blame seriously. illegal immigrants have more benefits than me an american citizen and Veteran, sure shut down businesses close shops go on unemployment for 214.00 a week see how long that lasts. O wait if i work for the state or government or media that's control what they want you to here for there own self interest and political control of what i call payed salves the 90% of tax payer. But if your a government employee you still get payed whether you work or not very good insurance health dental the works not this Obama don't care or other types of plans they offer. Thats what think a US Citizen Veteran i fought for freedom. What have this governors mayor city officials who make up the laws as they see fit to control us. Maybe i should go and protest like this un-American get rid of our police open our borders to anyone even terrorist with more rights than i have to have what they seek totalitarian control. I don't believe in a government that want to controls us from birth to death . How is that president Trump has millions well i see we see his businesses all over the USA Trump plaza etc. As president he only expected one dollar a year for his salary. transparent. How is it that Biden has millions well i how his son got millions i can see how he made millions on a government job just about all career politicians are millionerds' no transparency. My dream to be a career politician to beat the system be above the law or be an actor an athlete almost the same thing. maybe in another life.​
