that's disgusting and obscene what was done to you, sherry. it is shameful the way many thousands, (hundreds of thousands?) valuable employees have been replaced, robbed of their livelihood, in this country--and continue on this way today....

At the time, it was very upsetting, but after that, some friends and I formed a nice little consulting group, and did well with that for a good while until the economy tanked. But I heard on the ABC news tonight that the economy appears to be picking up! Anyway, I have more time to cook, scrapbook, do genealogy, etc. I feel sorry for people where the entire family is out of work.

I'm REALLY afraid she might. Did you catch how she called him "my husband" and then when he was in her house, when they were looking for Gracie, she looked at her lacy nightie with (insert some sorst of appropriate adjective here).

i don't believe there is any danger of alicia and peter reuniting. their common parental concern for gracie while she was missing had them caught up in an emotional moment together--nothing intimate there. alicia blames herself and her affair with will for gracie's disappearance--she should have been a better, more vigilant mother. the black teddy is seen as a symbol of alicia's self-indulgence. she is disgusted at herself for her sexual involvement and believes her punishment is gracie going missing. the affair with will cannot survive alicia's morality crisis--she cannot be a good mother and lover at the same time....

I didn't see it that way at the time... but now I wonder... I think she was feeling guilty for neglecting the kids, maybe, but it could be because she works too much (is she tempted at all to go to work for Michael J. Fox?). So interesting that Diane assumed Will was letting her go (per Diane's instructions) when really he'd NEVER do that. I'm still hoping that doesn't mean she goes back to Peter.

Forgot to look at the ratings for TGW, but "Person of Interest" did well - the best so far. Yay.

TV Ratings Thursday: ‘X Factor,’ ‘Bones,’ ‘Big Bang,’ ‘Community,’ ‘Parks’ Decline; ‘Person Of Interest’ & ‘Mentalist’ Rise, But… - Ratings | TVbytheNumbers

don't forget to watch the good wife tonight! :) it should be a pivotal episode, with unresolved issues and loose ends dangling dangerously and enticingly all over the place....

I really hope Alicia forgives Kalinda and they reunite. I always liked their relationship. Kalinda is I think, the best character. So mysterious and layered and sooooo talented. Very treacherous/but well meaning.

What's with Kalinda pulling out an accent every so often?
