I started watching season 1 and eventually got my wife to watch and then she loved it. We were excited for season 2 but that petered out after the first episode or two so we haven't gotten far. I'm sure we'll go back to it after we drop Hulu and have less available to watch. I guess if you like season 2 more than 1 then I'll make a point to go watch it again.

Took advantage of the nicer weather this Sunday - and by nicer I mean sun shine and low 40s! - and took my son fishing for the first time this season. And what a start to the season it was! the very first fish I landed was a pure muskie female!! 32" and 8.1 lb - what a ride! Hopefully this spells a great fishing season! This is the first time I caught a Muskie - the fish of 10K casts!

This is my wife's favorite show.
I was resistant to watch it at first but I just finished season two and I must say, it is delightful.
It's a period piece, set in the early 60s, about a woman who becomes a stand up comedian.  Its actually really really funny and its won a bunch of awards.
Totally worth investing the time to give it a watch.
Honestly, I like the second season better than the first
Can't wait for season 3 but they haven't even started filming it yet.

Still using my Feather blades and handle.  No complaints.

So I know I'm bringing back an old thread but I finally (years later) put a blade in my Parker 96R and tried it tonight. It's a really nice razor I think. I've just been using the SR1 and I don't think I'll ever go back to "regular" blades again. The 96R felt pretty nice but I don't like it as much for my beard trim ups. I had a hard time feeling where the blade actually was and trimmed a bit lower than I wanted to. So while it would work for a full shave or maybe goatee I think I'm going to be sticking with the straight razor for now. And I've been looking for a traditional one to start using instead of the SR1. It's fine and works great and the blades are dirt cheap but I think I'm settled enough to commit now.

You're feeling your way through this mess and doing what I think are the right steps.  Honestly the quiz is a good thing for her to do too even if she isn't touchy-feely.  Talking about that stuff doesn't have to be all mushy.  It's about getting what you both want and it sounds like that would be very good for both of you right now.

I found a PDF of the official 30 question quiz on their website. I'm solidly in the "words of affirmation" category with physical touch and quality time an even-ish second.  I kinda think quality time ranked higher than it might be because of either the given other option it was frequently paired up with or because lately i've been wishing for more quality time with my SO, even though its doesn't feel like something I've sought as much of in the past.

If I had to guess my wife's, I'd assume "Quality Time" is #1 followed by "receiving gifts."  It'd be interesting if she'd take the quiz.  She's not really the "touchy-feely, lets talk about our love and analyze our personalities" type though.

Everybody affirm me now. I need it or else it means you don't love me!

Don't buy the book.  Heck, I haven't even looked at the book.

I don't remember which quizzes I did but yeah the one I did seemed to match how I operate.  My first two were physical touch and quality time and my last was gifts and those are bang on.
