    Cowboy Bebop

    I didn't see all of it, but what I saw I liked a lot. It kind of reminded me of Firefly. Also, Ein the Corgi is really funny and cute!

    Longest You Have Gone Without Sleep

    I stayed up 24 hours once in my university days. I promptly bumped another car in a parking lot. I knew I was dazed from not sleeping enough. Never again!

    Elizabeth Holmes Scandal

    Something about her voice. It's trivial compared to the criminal case, but I also can't help wondering if she changed it to get taken more seriously. Maybe her alleged higher voice when she was younger was faked to blend in better with friends, like when Madonna pretended to sound English.

    Foreign music

    I occasionally listen to Japanese songs off of YouTube, soundtracks, or music apps. I also have downloads of American hits sung in Spanish, Cantonese, and Khmer, but I haven't listened to them for a while.

    Summer Vacation

    I'm trying to squeeze in a trip to northern California to visit relatives and maybe a couple of friends. Other than that, just local stuff!

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    I finally saw it last night. Yes, it's entertaining but also yes, it's a bit of a rush job about the history of Queen and of Freddie Mercury. The actors playing Brian May, John Deacon, and Roger Taylor were well cast, and Rami Malek was pretty impressive as Mercury. Did you see the movie yet?

    Drinking Water After Waking Up

    I've seen this and variations, like hot lemon water, on fitness sites. It's wise advice but I think I'd rather have tea, coffee, or seltzer first thing in the morning!

    Favourite pizza toppings?

    Anchovies are way too salty. Bell peppers are too strong. Other than those, I'm up for anything else including newer ones like macaroni and cheese.

    Celebrities in Trouble Over College Scandal

    I know! But then, USC is near Hollywood and has loads of alumni in entertainment like George Lucas, Ron Howard, and various actors. So, maybe "status" and future job connections?

    Celebrities in Trouble Over College Scandal

    Yeah, it's the unofficial official option for the rich — using money and/or fame to get their kids into certain schools. What's weird is faking sports profiles. Photoshopping kids' faces onto athletes' bodies, for sports those kids have no interest or intention of playing?

    Captain Marvel

    It was so-so. Pacing was on the slow side, and something about Carol Danver's / Captain Marvel's portrayal was kind of leaden, too. The liveliest characters were Maria and Monica Rambeau.

    Lent starts in a few days...

    One year, I gave up coffee for Lent. That was rough! Another time it was Netflix, which was also challenging. I haven't observed or thought about the season lately, though.

    Rain and snow

    Snowy days look great, but I prefer the rain. It probably has to do with spending some years in Seattle, Washington. I use downpours and even sprinkling as excuses to drink more coffee or tea.

    Snoring Problem

    A friend of mine got his tonsils removed, and that took care of his snoring (and apnea, his bigger issue). @Revenger, not sure if your partner would ever need to take things to this level!

    Popcorn Alternative

    If I want something different I like Haribo stuff, like Goldbears and Happy Cola. I used to be near a theater that let us bring outside food, so sometimes I brought in a burrito or hamburger. They're too messy, though.

    I love the Lemon Drop, which is just another version of a martini. Negronis, Manhattans, whiskey sours, and gin and tonics are also pretty awesome.

    The history of New Year Resolutions

    I want to cook more and make more progress on my reading list. I want to know the roads better in my new neighborhood, too.

    Yesterday (Directed by Danny Boyle)

    I want to see this! Boyle has taken some interesting chances throughout his career, and I like how he uses music. He should direct an episode of Black Mirror someday.

    Unfinished books

    I have six unfinished books on Kindle. A few I started several years ago. I'll get around to them (sometime...) Do you have books or graphic novels that you've bookmarked, but they're still sitting around?

    Studying or working abroad

    I took summer classes in Asia and loved the experience. I don't think I've heard regret from people who studied or worked abroad. If anything, I've heard regrets about not doing either or both. Hope Brazil works out for you!
