  2. I’ve never seen any of the Godfather movies and seem to have led a good life in spite of that. Curious: Why haven’t you seen “Titanic”?

    Your comment about the cold made me look at L.A.’s forecast and YAY! You have actual winter weather for a change! None of that low 80’s crap one isn’t supposed to have in January.

    • Dunno why… just never did. One of those things. I feel like I have from all the discussions though. Godfather films were good.

      It’s soooo cold 🥶

      • It’s easy to say, “Well, you should see it! Because awesomeballs!” but I’ve avoided extremely popular movies at the movies and when I tried to watch on DVD etc. (like “Pulp Fiction”), I realized it just wasn’t for me. So sometimes your subconscious knows even if you don’t.

  4. I’ve seen Titanic but wish I hadn’t. Two hours of my life that I’ll never get back. You know its bad when you start hoping they drown!

    I’ve never seen any of the Terminator, Rambo, Rocky or Alien films. That seems to amaze people in my own age group, but honestly, they have never appealed to me at all.

  5. I’ve never seen Titanic either… and the bit about animal stories…me too!
    And I always where many layers in winter, often a blanket as well.

  7. Wearing tights under your pants creates an entire extra layer of warmth.

    • Oh! It’s a University near Chicago, a good one. I got accepted and planned to go, but then my mother and I began to argue and for whatever reason she decided I should be punished by not going there. I was too stubborn to apologize, so I ended up at the University of Illinois, which I hated, and I dropped out. Then I didn’t finish my degree until late, after we moved to California. It really messed up my career prospects. 😢
