4:18 am
movieman

Thank god 'Futurama' has been brought back
4:18 am
mrpresident

yes! that is fun, and I let the kids watch that!
however, the Simpsons is off line for them... not good for moral fibre LOL
4:19 am
movieman

The Simpsons was okay for the first few seasons, then it started to get too adult orientated
4:20 am
mrpresident

simpsons teaches kids to be brats towards their parents. We don't let them watch several disney and nickelodeon shows for the same reason.
Only because they are vunerable at their age.
4:21 am
mrpresident

my kids are allowed to watch 'robot chicken'... it is less influential than simpsons!

Good. I dont think its my thing but it seems like a fine movie. I was so very happy about Heath Ledgers Award. It was sad and wonderful that he has been acknowledged for the amazing acting he did
4:29 am
mrpresident

herin, he is still a drug addict that died from an overdose.... so sad.
4:29 am
mrpresident

just like river pheonix.... legend before his time
4:30 am
Atalante

he was a drug addict?
4:31 am
mrpresident

yes ata.
4:31 am
Atalante

interesting. never heard that in everything I've read and heard
4:32 am
herinfernallady

HI Ata
4:33 am
herinfernallady

Um Mr Pres i will never judge someone for what could have easily been a mistake
4:33 am
mrpresident

are you saying... you didn't know he died from an overdose of drugs?? oxycontin and vicodin and valium and stilnox and ativan ect??
4:33 am
herinfernallady

Hi Ata. and i dont agree sorry.
4:33 am
mrpresident

bullshit herin
4:33 am
Atalante

there's a difference between taking drugs and screwing up and being a drug addict. a BIG one
4:33 am
movieman

It was an ACCIDENTAL overdose
4:34 am
mrpresident

yep, it was accidental.... but he was a drug addict
4:34 am
Atalante

yes. TY MM
4:34 am

Side note and totally random. Holly cricket. Underworld Rise of the Lycans comes out on the b.fs and I's 6th year anniversary. We saw the first one together.
4:38 am
movieman

I'm planning on seeing that one herin, seen the previous two
4:38 am
mrpresident

the man had no reason to be taking oxycontin and vicodin... sleeping tablets and muscle relaxants...
do the math.
I have been there and it is too easy to OD on that shit! Unless you are under the proper instruction of a physician who knows this business of meds, you are screwed.
I will not raise this again... but the man was seduced by 'hillbillie' drugs and OD'ed by accident.
4:38 am
herinfernallady

The first one is the first movie I saw with the b.f
4:39 am

going to celebrate the first year's anniversay of a druggie's death are you? tell the world what a bad role model he was to screw up once?
4:39 am

4:40 am

4:41 am

4:42 am
mrpresident

judge me???
4:42 am
herinfernallady

Sometimes your brain just goes on and on and on and on and then these things happen. Dark Knight was a hellish schedule and movie and he really got into the role. The simple mistake was lack of communication between him and the doctors involved. He saw different doctors. Its a simple error a simple screw up and he isn't going to come back and tell us why. I feel terribly sad for Matilda and his family
4:43 am

Quote from Wikepedia: In their New York Times interview, published on 4 November 2007, Ledger told Sarah Lyall that his recently-completed roles in I'm Not There (2007) and The Dark Knight (2008) had taken a toll on his ability to sleep: "Last week I probably slept an average of two hours a night. ... I couldn't stop thinking. My body was exhausted, and my mind was still going."[65] At that time, he told Lyall that he had taken two Ambien pills, after taking just one had not sufficed, and those left him in "a stupor, only to wake up an hour later, his mind still racing."[65]

Prior to his return to New York from his last film assignment, in London, in January 2008, while he was apparently suffering from some kind of respiratory illness, he reportedly complained to his co-star Christopher Plummer that he was continuing to have difficulty sleeping and taking pills to help with that problem: "Confirming earlier reports that Ledger hadn't been feeling well on set, Plummer says, 'we all caught colds because we were shooting outside on horrible, damp nights. But Heath's went on and I don't think he dealt with it immediately with the antibiotics.... [sic] I think what he did have was the walking pneumonia.' [...] On top of that, 'He was saying all the time, "dammit, I can't sleep"...[sic] and he was taking all these pills [to help him] [sic].' "[88]

In talking with Interview magazine after his death, Ledger's former fiancée Michelle Williams "also confirmed reports the actor had experienced trouble sleeping. 'For as long as I'd known him, he had bouts with insomnia,' she said. 'He had too much energy. His mind was turning, turning turning always turning.' "[89]

if MrP hadn't been so stupidly judgemental in the first place, ppl wouldn't have got upset
4:47 am

I am going to play the devils advocate and say no one regardless of who they are have a right to be judgemental towards another person for you do not know what is in their mind.
4:47 am

I have been through enough shit and don't need attacking..

From what I can see from the log what is a simple difference in perspective about a difficult subject has gotten very personal. How about some breathing and a ceasefire on personal comments?

just scanning the chat log briefly - and have something to add. Last year when it was all happening mrp was so upset by it all she researched everything she could about the topic so she could find out what actually happened - that's worth mentioning. It's one thing to be strongly opinionated but another to do it without experience or knowledge.

He got stressed out from traveling and had what looked like the beginnings of another bout of urinary crystals and blockage. It looks now like it may just have been emotional, but we were in Boston visiting, and it was New Year's Eve (of course-why go to the vet when it doesn't cost double?!) and in the middle of a blizzard, so much fun was had by all., They gave him a steroid injection to alleviate any urethral inflamation and my guess is that that, plus being at the vets with all the viruses running around there, gave him a severe cold. Cold=no sense of smell=no appetite.

he has had 3 major attacks since kittenhood-almost died once. he is on nothing but a very special diet, distilled water,cranberry pills every day to acidify urine, plenty of fluids, etc, and he's done great for the past 4 years since being on this all raw diet. But he is 14 going on 15 and quite ann insecure boy, and travel definitely takes a lot out of him. So does being left at home alone, but I've decided that he probaby can't travel any more, so have a crew of friends and neighbors who are cat people who will come and wine and dine him when we go away.

i heard it has to do with the fact that cat food is higher in protein than dog food, and thus the output is too, and that is why dogs like it

The latest news on the cat is that they found teh bulk of the thing to be a cyst, which they drained so she's more comfortable, but under it was a hard tumor and they couldn't get a needle biopsy on it so they did a surgical one. They'll know more by Monday. Meanwhile she is resting upstairs on my bed, but seems to have recovered well from yesterday.

Yes, we'll see. I do qualify as far as I can make out, and requesting it falls right into the degree I just got so maybe they WILL send me someone. I can keep my house up OR do anything else-- the back tires very easily and then of course hurts more.

to be honest, all the talk of wind chill peeves me no end. when do they ever say "it's 82 today, but the wind chill makes it 65...." Wind chill is only used to calculate whether or not it is too cold to ship fruit on open trucks....dont' need the extra cold perception, thanks

I didn't say they were. But I think there ought to be a fair amount of overlap between people who favor them as icons, and people who know about sci-fi robot terminology!

they fit a lot better and my eyes don't hurt now that the optician checked and adjusted them. The optometrist actually wrote a new prescription, but the optician thought just making them fit differently would work. They made my eyes hurt over the weekend.

oh well, ask if you need to -- the bifocals I just got make the reading glasses superfluous -- if I can wear them full-time. Don't need correction for the regular things, but don't like putting readers on and off all the time.

to a point Nancy, but if you dont eat for a long time, your body enters into "starvation metabolism" and then...

you basically store everything you eat and can not lose any weight. It is more better to eat on a regular schedule, regular foods.

too late jellen? for what?
3:00 pm
Jellen

To clue you, stid!
3:00 pm
lilliann

np jellen, i'm sure there will be more words to clue in a minute
3:01 pm
Jellen

Tim
3:01 pm
stidmama

quick babble poll: how many of you say "what" as if the H didn't exist?
3:01 pm
stidmama

oh yes jellen, plenty of fish left in this pond!
3:01 pm
Jellen

Tim's giving me a pep talk about impending trip...lol
3:01 pm
Kizah

I use the H in what...but then I teach phonics.
3:01 pm
JBV

hi, stid - no H in my "what" here (NJ)
3:01 pm
lilliann

good afternoon everyone
3:02 pm

Hi, JBV!
3:02 pm
lilliann

3:03 pm
BabbleRabble

some pep talks are a waste of pep
3:03 pm
Jellen

There's an H in my what, stid.
3:03 pm
stidmama

hey JBV and kizah. thanks! I use the H myself, but my linguistics teacher was saying that most people these days don't.
3:03 pm
Jellen

Lilliann, I'm visiting Tim's mom and family this weekend...
3:04 pm
lilliann

are they far from you jellen?
3:04 pm
Jellen

Hi, Kizah
3:05 pm
JBV

depends on where you were raised, I'd say, stid

Hi Jellen
3:05 pm
lilliann

hi kizah. i love the lemur in your pic.in blackpool zoo you can walk through their enclosure...it's great
3:06 pm
Jellen

I mean long way...5/6 hours...
3:06 pm
Kizah

Often is another one that people say differently. Here in the midwest we don't always pronounce the T...it's just offen.
3:06 pm
Jellen

wb Trif!
3:06 pm
stidmama

I think so, JBV -- but he was talking about "standard" american English. I think the west coast doesn't use the H so much, but the midwest probably does
3:06 pm
Kizah

Oh thanks. I think the lemur is left over from when it was lemur day or animal day or something. What day is it today?
3:06 pm
stidmama

oh oh, another unfinish thought immortalized...
3:06 pm
stidmama

it's wednesday, kizah... *grin*
3:07 pm
lilliann

well, i hope you have a nice time jellen. have you met them before?
3:07 pm
Kizah

The midwest...around here in Iowa is pretty standard english...I know it moves around a bit...but usually stays around northern midwest.
3:07 pm
JBV

I think the "t" in often is a hypercorrection, kizah, people influenced by the way the word is spelled
3:07 pm
Trifioso

thanks jellen...grid locked already!
3:07 pm
Kizah

Wednesday? Really?
3:07 pm
Jellen

Some of them, lilliann...
3:07 pm
JBV

kizah, I'll bet you have no problem with phonics books that rhyme dog and log........
3:07 pm
stidmama

yes, and sometimes people who are less well-read put extra sounds in where they are not generally heard...
3:07 pm
Jellen

PB for Trif!
3:07 pm
stidmama

or what JBV said.
3:07 pm
Kizah

Oh wait...that's right...we SHOULDN'T say the T...I got that backwards.

I'm suffering from some S.A.D. lately...we have about two feet of snow and since I work at home I don't go out much.
3:08 pm
stidmama

3:09 pm
Kizah

My students have been on holiday for about a month so I guess I better brush up on my pronunciation again. My spelling too!
3:09 pm
stidmama

oh gee kizah -- I "hear" you on that. *offers hot cocoa to compensate* do you have all the lights on? that usually helps me
3:09 pm
JBV

stid, we could never use those as rhyming words in NYC - dog and log have two totally different sounds here
3:09 pm
Jellen

Do full-spectrum bulbs help SAD?
3:09 pm
Trifioso

3:09 pm
stidmama

3:09 pm
Kizah

I do put the lights on and I also don't have shades or curtains on my windows...let's a lot of light in.
3:10 pm
Atalante

how can dog and log be pronounced differently?
3:10 pm
Kizah

Never did get the full-spectrum light...I should though...have been dealing with depression and S.A.D. since childhood. I'm 39 now...guess I usually jsut push through.
3:10 pm

3:10 pm
stidmama

full-spectrums are useful for me when I am not getting outside at all. I have them in the office which currently is not navigable due to boxes, coats, recycling...
3:10 pm
JBV

dog is more of an /aw/
3:11 pm
stidmama

3:11 pm

3:11 pm
JBV

the dog is on the lawn - those have the same sound
3:11 pm

what grade kizah?
3:14 pm
Kizah

I've had anywhere from preschool to high school...I do math as well.
3:14 pm
stidmama

when I help kids who are struggling to read, the hardest thing to do sometimes is get them to realize that there are blends and digraphs and diphthongs (sp?) that require one to NOT sound out each letter.
3:15 pm
Norma

Hi runnerbean
3:15 pm

I should go...need to do something today. My husband moved snow, went to work all day and will probably come home and do some stuff. I have done little to nothing. Not that he expects me too, but I need to pull my weight around here. (smile)
3:16 pm
Kizah

Later, guys!
3:16 pm
Jellen

ga5 change the last vowel of the following ga5/24
3:16 pm
JBV

the kids who do best with sounding out are the ones who already know how to read - kids who have not made the connection need to focus on words, not parts of words
3:16 pm
stidmama

3:16 pm
Jellen

Bye, Kizah

the best way for kids to learn to read, imHo... is for parents and other caregivers to read with and in front of them. Set the example...
3:17 pm
lilliann

*how
3:17 pm
Jellen

ga5/24 = Ga** Strip (Israel/Palestine) + consonant
3:18 pm
JBV

it's such a fundamental skill, lilliann - and so sad to see how many people struggle - I have worked with adults, too - we always start with personal words first, family members' names, things they work with, etc...
3:18 pm

3:22 pm
stidmama

true enough, BR! once had a friend of the kids' come over to do homework. He didn't believe me when I told him "look up" a word he didn't know. I don't think he had ever seen a real Webster's before.

3:26 pm
stidmama

that is smart, lilliann. I was able to "catch" one of the kids in a class I help in this week -- as she worked on her assignment, she had a sheet of paper to list all the words she didn't completely know. She kept reading, but would be able to look them up later and then re-read for deeper meaning.
3:26 pm
mrpresident

morning all :)
3:26 pm

our teachers are trained to have students keep a "personal" dictionary - not every student int he class needs to learn the same words

Hello stidmama. What ever is all this about?

well, the mp probably has never dealt with a child who has a true reading disability.

I definitely haven't seen that project runway... we must get late episodes too

i disagree with the mp, lilliann, it may be overprescribed but it definitely exists
