So I'll stop derailing, and say some of my favourite performances of Christopher Plummer :
I loved his performance as Herod Antipas in Zefferelli's "Jesus of Nazareth." I hadn't seen Plummer in a role as a lecherous hedonist,
and it was refreshing to see him in a different role.
I also loved...
I know I shouldn't derail the thread, but I didn't know you were a Forever Knight fan, Mendalla! (Me, too!) Huge fan.
Way back around 2008 on the old Wondercafe, there was a thread about what television show you felt most embodied Christ's redemption.
I chose Forever Knight, and wrote about the...
A couple of years ago I met Bruce Dow (a Stratford actor) at a drama teachers' conference. We were sitting at the same lunch table.
He was in about 10 plays at Stratford with Christopher Plummer and Geraint Wyn Davies. He told me that for some of those seasons, the three of them had dressing...
Thanks for that, Mendalla, as you are connecting the dots for me of how we got from latest trend to war implement.
However, it doesn't seem like anything new. I try. as a high school teacher, to teach awareness about social media.
The students get lots of teaching about cyberstalking and...
I have to admit that I don't understand the politics about this at all.
I'm a high school teacher, and teens typically gravitate towards the the most recent social media platforms.
Tik Tok was all the rage last year in school (before the pandemic closure.)
(And Snapchat was all the rage the...
For me, it's popcorn and seeds.
I have been diagnosed with diverticulitis, and I know if I eat seeds or popcorn, they may cause a painful flare up.
I love popcorn, but after the last flare up, no food is worth risking that pain.
So I eat "popcorn chips" whenever I crave popcorn.
I myself and my community of faith have both found the regional structure better.
Like you, Jim, I'm at EOORC, and since the restructuring of 2018, I've been to 4 face-to-face regional events, which is more than I ever went to before.
There were some regional events I was looking forward to...
Then I stand corrected and reprimanded.
(And if you read my Wondercafe2 profile, you'll see I identify as female.) :)
(I'd say there's a lesson for everyone in this thread about assumptions.....:unsure:
If the opportune moment arises, I will give them that feedback.
But I'm not going to call up the church office some 2 weeks later and say "Oh boy the way...."Because that might cause them to feel bad.
The protocols that come from this pandemic are new to all of us, and we're all doing our best.
I am only relating how I felt, Chemgal.
It may have been their intent to care and it may have been their intent to protect.
But the impact of singling me out made me feel like an alien. The impact of passing me a clipboard and asking me to write my name (when there were no other names on it)...
