    It was cold today and we have a busy little bubba so it was a bit hard to use up his energy so we layered up put some warm clothes on and went out on an adventure

    Hi, here's some facts that would make you think twice

    - Tomato sauce was sold in the 1800’s as medicine.

    - In every episode of Seinfeld there is a Superman somewhere.

    Have good day.

    that superman one is doing me in lol

    Really???

    I haven't seen all the seinfeld eps and know there's a running joke about Jerry being obsessed with superman, but had no idea it was any more than that

    Julia Louis Dreyfus is such an amazing actress (side note). Elaine is still one of my favourite characters on a tv show

    Hi everyone,

    nothia bit of trivia, a famous cola drink was once used for cleaning, maybe an urban myth but that's what my mum said.

    bubble wrap was used as wall paper.

    have never seen one episode of Seinfeld! is that a record. or never seen any star warts movies or never saw Jaws.

    Hi all,

    Hope you are all travelling along ok. Winter is upon us, becoming very chilly.

    Does anyone feel things are slowly returning to normal? A different normal. I must say having to line up to enter a store irks me a little as does having my temperature tested upon entry. My little one back at school tomorrow. Temperature testing and designated pick up areas to maintain distance. Guess we have to go with the flow, not over think it.

    How's everyone else feeling about the new 'normal '.

    Wishing everyone a good day.

    Hi all.Talking about Seinfeld it is one of my favourite shows and seen every episode heaps of times.

    The weather is colder here now.Yes it does snow in Qld and 30mins up the road it has snowed in the past.

    I do notice with restrictions easing a lot more cars on the road and more peole in shopping centers.I was booked in to have more surgery in August but get a letter in the mail saying it is postponed dure to the covid19 so it is still effecting things for me.

    wow temperature testing before shopping, not happening here. There was a week when they were counting people going Into supermarkets but then they realise they never reached the maximum anyway so they stopped,

    Paul could probably shock you by telling you that I’ve also never seen any of the Lord of Rings movies ,.

    I’ve never seen any Star Trek I don’t know hunger games or Game of Thrones .I never watched Friends, never seen an avatar movie and never seen mr bean.

    Anyone have anything they want to add to my list of shame.,!!!

    I haven't seen Lord of the rings or Star Trek movies I watch Friends and Seinfeld daily. I love Everybody Loves Raymond. I enjoy light shows.

    Game of Thrones no interest at all and also haven't seen Avatar. I haven't even watched all the Harry Potter movies.

    i always confuse george constanza (the seinfeld character played by jason alexander) w jorji costava (recurring character from bureaucr-em-up papers please who just. really wants to enter arstotzka). in my youtube's liked videos i do have this video thats like... george's wife dying but its formatted entirely like ps2 game persona 4. lets play perseinfield 4: part 57 susan's death *SPOILERS*

    i had to watch lotr for some english assignments and also i have a love affair with halflings so i know some lotr. uhh i don't touch avatar either like... who remembers avatar. being honest it was the highest grossing film before last year and nobody seems to remember it. then again i barely remember endgame either. it won zero oscars. endgame made records as "the only movie that was highest grossing and made ZERO academy awards". tbh i thought yall were talking about avatar: the last airbender at first so that shows what i was thinkin

    we don't deal with harry potter bc I think harry potter fans are annoying as all hell and that jkr is a transphobe. love yourself. also i never get over mahotokoro and how you like... name the japanese magical school just "magical place" in japanese, its not even gramatically correct. the pronunciation guide she gives is wrong. you wrote whats considered the hardest book series to translate because of how complex it is with british in jokes and so many made up words except when it comes down to you as an author to make a name up in another language its uhh magical place and take the cheque. i was too busy reading warrior cats when i was ten to bother with harry potter and even though warrior cats is super shit to me now i am Happy i didn't waste it on hp

    i remember being year 8 and its back when it was compulsory to do music and a substitute teacher was discussing how musicals used to be originally musicals that were turned into movies and now its movies adapted to musicals, and it was smth about capitalism or the dearth of creativity in theatre but she mentioned grease and a lot of people were really confused bc they didn't. know grease as the musical. i was singing out the iiiiiii've got chills, n' they're multiplyiiing! and iiiii'm losin' controool! as loudly as i could and that substitute still saw me as "the only one of that year 8 music class who knew grease". still haven't seen grease. i really should mama rails on me all the time about it

    Hi Eight you mentioning Grease brings back memories when i was 9 years old in 1978 i won Grease memorabilia while i was at a shopping centre as Boris the Black Knight from kids morning tv show was there doing promotion for it and he picked me out with three others out of a large crowd and we had to see who could blow the biggest balloon and i did and won all this Grease stuff.I remember my mum wearing the Grease T-shirt as it was an adults size.

    " You better shape up, cas I need a man, and my heart is set on you"

    Love Grease!

    I'm really excited- watching the progression of my website being built... it's been two years in the making.

    It has taken me two years to be able to afford to turn my dream into a reality. And now it's really happening!

    Just in response to the shopping stuff, I agree CMF it feels a bit strange but it’s how things are now, I must say I’ve been to a few shops lately, mostly retail as we had to get a few things coming into winter, and they were all pretty normal, just sanitizer at the door, the chemist did temp checking though.
