  3:43pm P-90:

On Facebook, Sheila posted a photo of Fox interviewing her, and said she'd given them her political thoughts but they would almost certainly not use them. I kept an eye out for the segment and behold, her comments were so compelling they used probably most of what she had to say...!
  3:44pm Frank Zaatar:

Mazel tov! We're all so glad to have you as a citizen! I recently attended a citizenship ceremony for a couple of friends and it was one of the most moving experiences of my life. And we didn't even have RBG in the house.
Now, did you go out and register to vote?

He's not a politician. Just an idiot who got lucky. He's also going to be saying bye bye soon...

I hadn't heard of that--does it mean you have to apply for a passport to register to vote? At any rate, I trust you'll have plenty of time before November.
  4:00pm P-90:

@Perspicacious and precise DJ Gaylord:
Yes, I should have specified "Fox 5" and not just "Fox", to distinguish the cable channel from the local Channel 5 news.
But Sheila did see that they were from somewhere in the Fox family and guessed they probably would not be too interested in her political points, to their credit (and hers) they dug what she had to lay down.

@djsheilab: You mean, “ Zorongo?” Slightly like “The Love Boat” theme when they do the more western sounding strings. But I feel like those strings are everywhere in 1970s works.

@Guido: That is technically correct, but try telling that to a Greek or Turkish person (being in Germany, you probably have). (In grad school, we used to put Turkish flags and other accouterments on the Greek students and vice versa on the Turkish students. (us yanks were very juvenile, and they caught on after awhile it was the yanks.... and the poles, and mexicans, albanians, afganis, ghananians, nigerians, malays, chinese {we chipped in}.. [easiest national rivalry to get guffaw out of when your 22]) After they figured out it was everyone but them that perpetrating the pranks, they thought it was funny....before then.....

I was the one that forced her to get pap smears when we first met when she was 23 (her first), but she was diagnosed at 32. We both in succession lost our permanent jobs w/in 2 mos. of each other and had to freelance w/ no benefits. Obamacare just started being a thing, but she got diagnosed before she registered (her yearly was after her insurance quit).

Seoul is a bit south of us -- do the days get noticeably longer this time of year ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm northguineahills:

actually, I believe she made too much freelancing to qualify for Obamacare, I on the the other had, was underemployed at the time, and could have qualified. (still paying out of pocket killed us, but not our spirits. We're still kicking, just in different states).

EarlyMorning, That stigma really saddens me. Enough girls aren't getting it and on the other end women who could still benefit from it are told they're too old. The age cut off is ridiculous. I paid $1,200 to get it off label.
