Oh, another reason Jill would plotz, Aladdin is from the Middle East!

I must be getting old. Aladdin looks like a little boy to me. I want to pinch his cheeks and tell him he’s a cutie. Now that Kassim is another story. Oh my...

Tim’s got his private license, but I suspect he’s going to have an uphill battle with his classes in the fall. Just by the looks of it, some of them look straight up challenging—and this poor kid took three tries to pass a test about something he’s supposedly been passionate about since he was four. I don’t think he’s going to find physics a breeze, to put it kindly. 

And homeschooled to bat, where he allegedly could read and study to his heart’s content.

It totally makes sense, but it did not occur to me that pilots have to take physics courses. Oof. Good luck with that on a Plexus HS diploma, Timmy.

Wait, what? Tim has to take physics. 

One can hope that he takes advantage of  tutoring and study groups.

I hope Timmmay was told the old saying, "There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots."

Frankly, I don't feel comfortable at all with him flying around.   He is a danger to himself and others.

Now, now, I'm sure the young man is thoroughly grounded (get it?!?) in aerodynamics.  🙄  It will be so interesting to follow his college career.  He'll have to expend extra energy dodging the immodest, avoiding mind-expanding perspectives, and catching up on subjects he should have learned in junior high school, in addition to keeping his grifting skills sharp, but Plexus and Mama will help with that.  Good luck, Tim!

He won't pass a physics class.  Zero chance, even with tutoring.  Heck, I have two graduate degrees and would never be able to pass a physics class, probably even at the high school level.  Timothy?  No freaking way he can pass.  None.

I have a science degree and physics just never meshed in my head.  My worst class ever.  I was getting extra help and everything.

So Timmykins can now head off into the wild blue yonder. I hope that anyone who wants to fly with him—at least until he has some serious experience—remembers this name: John F. Kennedy, Jr. No one wants to see Not Dead Tim become Dead Tim. 

Just came to this thread to check on the latest from the JRods, and reading of Tim's piloting (plus watching the video) I thought of JFK Jr as well.   I know that Tim is new at piloting right now but hope he will not attempt flying in conditions that he's not ready to handle, that he is realistic about his ability, takes all the necessary training to ensure he is flying safely.  But I am afraid that may not be the case because see below.........

He should do more training, just to be a safer, better pilot since he wants to make this a career. But I doubt that will happen because he’s a Rod.

I see being a Rod being a serious risk factor here.

So, thinking about what classes Timothy might have to take, does anyone know which aviation program he'll be starting?  FVTC has these options:

Aeronautics-Pilot Training (AAS)

Aeronautics-Professional Pilot (TD)

Aircraft Electronics (AAS)

Airframe & Powerplant Mechanics (TD)

Honestly, at one point I was thinking, “Why are all these kids here if they are too young to appreciate the sexiness on stage?” I got so defrauded I forgot Disney is for kids. WHOOPS.

However, I really appreciate the kid behind me who made noises of disgust when Aladdin and Jasmine kissed (sorry, spoiler lol)

What if someone is dressed like Aladdin?

Edit: Another great moment was when my dad commented, “Aladdin looks Jewish. Do you think he is in need of a bride?” So if I disappear for an extended period of time, you may assume I am on my honeymoon with Aladdin.

You are being too kind.  Those words are likely SEVERELY hard for Tim to spell.  My list:

plane (plain)

flight (flite)

air (arr)

All I remember about my physics class in high school is the Doppler effect, watching a myth busters episode where they buried beer in the sand and lit the ground on fire to see if that cools down the beer (Apprently that’s what they did in Nam? I immediately concluded this is why that war didn’t go well for us), and my teacher thought by repeatedly booping herself on the nose. And one time I literally fell asleep while writing my name. Good luck, Tim!

I barely passed my high school physics class! I was very lucky that my lab partner was not only my friend, but one of the smartest people in the school.

I remember we had to figure out how one of those drinking birds (that duck up and down into water) worked. Everyone was like "oh I get it" and "aha".... I was liked huh???

      I am beyond angry at Mr. Briefly's mother. My daughter posted a comment on her own facebook page that discussed parellels between nazi Germany and what is happening today as far as immigrants, detention camps, etc. My MIL left one of the rudest, meanest things I have ever seen. She told me daughter not to post things like that on her own page, she said horrible things. I just posed a long comment to my MIL, and told her that she has destroyed her relationship with her granddaughter and probably any hope of one in the future. My daughter is so hurt, and she is angry. And so am I. I try to be forgiving, but I'm not really inclined to forgive this one. Maybe I will be, but my daughter probably won't ever forgive her for this one. OK, rant over - and thank you for listening.

      Did another photo shoot this morning (strictly trade for prints, because it's a fun hobby), this one for Paul McCartney/Another Day.  one of those incredibly pretty little songs that hides just devastating lyrics behind beautiful harmony:  As she posts another letter to the sound of five People gather 'round her and she finds it hard to stay alive It's just another day.  There's a furniture shop near where I live that sells second hand and "unique" furniture/decor.  They had a neat little vanity someone built out of a Singer sewing machine table so we did the photos there, trying to convey the world weariness of the lyrics in a single photo.  It felt good.  We'll see how the prints turn out.
      It always surprises me how well Neptune and I work in these kinds of situations.  We'd had one conversation about this shoot, ten days or a couple weeks ago.  A few key words, couple props that he specifically wanted, not much else.  We walked into the building and started setting up without needing to really talk very much.  Just feels easy and in sync in a really comfortable way.

      Has anybody else had issues with the latest Windows update?  Windows 10 has screwed up a lot of computers, mine included. Apparently,.Microsoft knew that it was going to cause problems and released it anyway. Now they talk like they are working on a problem.  OK, so I guess they are going to pay for the repairs to my laptop since I had to take it in to be fixed?  Due to their stupidity in releasing a known problem and not having a patch ready, but still they should not have released it knowing it was going to do this!!

      Peanut likes sitting on her hidey-house! She’s eating a bit of honeydew melon which the pigs have never had before (although they have had watermelon). 

      There is still a bit of an abscess left; it’s reduced a bit in size but not completely. Our nearest vet clinic is mainly cat/dog related although the woman we’ve been seeing does have an interest/knowledge about small animals. We’re going to contact another clinic who are an exotics centre; our vet said that she could do a slightly more invasive procedure but that it’d be best if we took Peanut to a specialist place. 
      The vet also said today that we can reunite her with Cinnamon and Grace; there was no evidence of a bite mark but we’ll still have to be careful because of where the abscess is. The main reason we kept her separate was so she could recover post-sedation when the drainage site needed to properly heal. 
      I’m not worried about her health-wise in any major sense, but it’ll be a relief when it’s dealt with!

      Received news (from my dermatologist) that I tested positive for ANA, which indicates I have some type of auto-immune problem. But I can't see a rheumatologist until my primary care refers me, and I don't have an appointment with primary care until the 28th. And who knows how long it's going to take me to get into a specialist. So now I just get to sit around thinking about what's potentially wrong with me and being scared shitless about it.

      The substitute pastor dislikes me and my candor and forthrightness. As he was giving pre-worship announcements, I needed to blow my nose. Did it so quietly! — but he interrupted himself with “gesundheit!” — and I felt embarrassed and in retaliation rolled my eyes or scowled every time he looked my way during sermon. Also held subsequent nose-clearings for when HE spoke during service. It felt snarky--right at first, now I’m just mad that these patriarchal bozos foul up the peace of music and hymns and prayers with their attitudes and actions. Thanks to FJ for providing this little forum-ette. I feel better for venting.
