Dear DB Staff,
I just speed-scrolled down the page and flew right past Recent Posts because they’ve been moved to the top! Thanks for that! I think Beanies will like it 👍🏼

    @bbstl: I am so glad you read this too and posted it here. These young women are amazing individuals. They have survived abuse and have overcome so many obstacles to win those silver medals. Manse!

    That was really interesting! I was actually just talking about this with my husband the other day – I’ve been not that interested in movies lately and I put it down to them all being the same shade of grey-blue.

    Now if they could move away from that and also fix the sound so I could hear people talking, that would be great 😂

      Yes, that sound thing has bugged me for years. I read something about how the sound for movies has vast highs and lows that are designed for theater systems and our tvs/screens aren’t equipped for that.

        I’ve read that too, the sound mixed for one situation but it’s not the one we normally watch it in now. It’s awkward!

          Yeah it is. I’m embarrassed to admit I just discovered what the ↪️ button is for on the Roku remote, likewise the option to only see “captions on replay”. It’s like a whole new life for me 🤦🏼‍♀️

            Don’t be embarrassed – I don’t know what most of the buttons on my remote do 😅 possibly nothing 😂

            @beffels I feel that way about all the buttons in my car as well 😬

    I read about this in the summer when the Olympic archer was being attacked for having short hair. It was ugly. I fear it’s only going to get worse, as the SK conservative party has tapped into the angry young male vote much the way Trump tapped into the angry white male vote in the U.S, and look where we are.

      Yep. That’s what I’m sayin’. What a bunch of knuckleheads.

“The Trauma Plot” made me think of almost every kdrama ML since forever.

Roundup Day 13.
I didn’t like and Beanies loved: Racket Boys. I couldn’t stand the coach and dropped pretty early.
I didn’t get and Beanies loved: On the Verge of Insanity. It was just ok for me.
I liked a lot and Beanies didn’t (not really sure anyone else watched it?): Mine. Great performances from the actresses, fabulous costumes, crazy MIL and, I can’t lie, soap opera-ish stories and still I liked it 😊

Day 12. I never remember much but thanks, I think, to Lord Cobol I can offer this line that rang home with me in a big way.

Saw this in a store and thought of all the Beanies, for whom goat sounds have a special meaning.

      Right? I want to play the bleat sound whenever I’m in a conversation that runs out of steam 😆

      Except no one but kdrama fans would get the joke 🤷🏻‍♀️

        That would be funny though! 😆 I want to get this when I go back to the office for my obnoxious coworkers who chitchat all day

    That store is so much fun!!! @mmmmm add this to your list for when you come to Seattle to eat salmon.

      Ok! Though I wonder what need I will have for a goat sound.

      For the record, Mugy convinced me that salmon is really good there and I want to see the first Starbucks branch. Oh.. there is a movie named Sleepless in Seattle which makes me interested I traveling there.
