Review of The Shining mini-series

    I really liked the mini series.

    Until I saw that fist picture, I had managed to block that Danny from my head. That was awful. jeeze.

    The Wendy and Jack as described in the book worked for me.

    Oh lord, I blocked that Danny. Now it's back. That was very distracting from the whole series. Shame.

    Quickly! See the second Danny picture! It will help you use your attention in that and only that, blurring young Danny's image from your mind. :Z:

    That last statement made me laugh. :) "oh lord, I blocked that Danny. Now it's back". (Sorry, haven't learned how to quote very well).

    I click the quote button and then manually delete what is not the phrase I want to quote.

    But I noticed recently that, if you select the text you want to quote (dragging the cursor over the text while holding the mouse's button), it gives a small option to quote only that.

    I have never used it, going back to the button every time, but I think it might be useful for others (and for myself, if I remembered the option is there before having already used the normal way).

    Thanks, I'll give it a try next time. I'm using a tablet, though.

    You just highlight the text, and a quote little tag should show up.

    Back to Danny and that lip. The hells? Kept wanting to wipe it or poke it or something. He had baby milk lips.

    And I forgot to quote. Doc Creed

    I have tried to imitate it. I can't.

    Either I get my cheeks that round or do a bad impression of that open mouth. I have big cheeks, but not balloon-round unless I fill them with air, which can't be done with the mouth like that.

    Practice will make perfect, Doc.

    "Doc", just what series-Danny was called as he stared dumbly at space with his open mouth (and no, that was not during his spells, that was his normal look).

    I don't remember him having a look in the book. Hey! A rhyme!

    Blank Fishhook look came later.

    You can say he fell in the net of the Overlook! :D

    Wait! The joke was on the hook, so why a net? :cold:

    Never mind... :saddd:

    Bad joke time = leave work time. See you once I get home. Hopefully with better material.

    I am sorry to report that I can make that look. It's somewhere between Elvis and Danny.


    Yeah, I've been doing it.
