Bag of Randomness for DaughterGeeding’s Eighth Birthday or The Last Day of May 2018
I can’t remember if I mentioned I donated blood recently and it didn’t go well. They started on my left arm and something went wrong, then they used my right arm and something caused sharp pain so they had to stop and I was left with one heck of a bruise. Yesterday they called, and when I looked at the Caller ID I was perplexed as to why they were calling. My first thought was, this is how they tell people they tested positive for something, but I have no reason to think why I should test positive for anything. It turns out they simply wanted to check how I was feeling and apologized again for what happened.
I like that DaughterGeeding is proud of her Vietnamese heritage, she gets excited anytime she hears about the country, but I had to tell her to tone down that excitement anytime the Vietnam War is mentioned.
BoyGeeding was trying to argue that he’s white and American and his sister was simply half-Asian.
I was determined my children were going to be born with U2 playing in the background. When WifeGeeding was in labor, I had their entire catalog playing on random. DaughterGeeding was born to U2’s “Jesus Christ”.
I didn’t like the finale, but then again, a lot of finales don’t live up to my expectations. Once again, it’s about the journey the show takes you on, not the destination. It was still one heck of a television series.
I don’t see Stan doing what he did. I know the show had to go in one direction or another, but I just don’t see Stan doing what he did. It was out of character. I also thought Elizabeth acted out of character. She was always very cold and didn’t get hung up on emotion, I thought she would easily abandon her son.
I like how the audience is left to guess if Renee, Stan’s wife, is a spy or not. I think she is.
I think Stan ends up adopting Henry, but I have no idea if Henry is still going to be able to go to that private school.
I like how Stan’s boss and how his character evolved or was promoted through the series.
Paige exiting the train didn’t surprise me.
Of course, I liked that U2’s “With or Without You” was played.
I’d like to think that Phillip visits Martha, remember her?
My preferred ending would have had Elizabeth being killed. Stan catching Phillip, and Phillip brokering a deal with the FBI and adopting the American way of life, just like real life Russian spy Jack Barsky. If you haven’t seen the ’60 Minutes’ segment on him, it’s fantastic.
