Re: ANGRY NATTERINGS

It's even possible to say, 'I tried to help, and my actions were misinterpreted by women.' That is perfectly possible.

None of this, 'rolling pins and holding things' nonsense.

Re: Daredevil (Netflix)

I really enjoyed Fisk because he's so weird? I don't see him like other super villains. He's clearly desperate for control and is absolutely unable to relinquish it and tries to play it off as a suave business man. His character felt almost all 'show don't tell' which I appreciated. I enjoyed the ju...

Bread is squishy. I like Toblerone when it's been in the fridge for a while. The tapering as well, the base is pretty bad. Biting down is super hard at the moment. So biting down on a dense chocolate that's slightly larger than will fit in my mouth without pain is just the worst.
