  1. Let's have a check-in! I had my 6 month appointment in September and things were 100% healed by then. I had a talk with my doctor about the size of my breasts and how they are still too big. She agreed to redo the surgery (mostly to get rid of the ugly, ugly scar tissue). I had another round of surgery on October 14th. She took about 8oz from each breast and cut off all the damaged skin. This time around, I was eating healthier, I've been exercising every day, so my recover has been amazingly well. Surgery was on a Wednesday, and I was back to work the next
  2. 1. How did you first hear about the Wheel of Time and what made you want to read the series? My sister read it first and talked about it. She tricked me into reading it somehow and once I got halfway through The Eye of the World, I was hooked. Now, I love it more than she does. 2. If you could join an Ajah in the White Tower which one would you pick? (Lucky us!) White Ajah. Even though I do have a streak of Blue in me, I identify more with the Whites. 3. If the Black Tower has Ajahs, what might some be? This sounds amazing! This world has so many corn
  3. Oh, this looks interesting @StarRisk! I think I follow Rebecca, but I've taken a break from social media for the past two months (hence why I've been a little inactive here!). I like your answers, though I don't like Padan Fain at all!!! I will agree about the scene I'm most excited to see in the show--I can't wait for "The Golden Crane flies for Tarmon Gai'don!" 😭
  4. @StarRisk so glad that you were able to attend that meeting with Sarah! It was such an incredible interview! When she talked about how the feels finally hit her on set, it was so hard for me to keep my emotions in check! 😭 We of the White Ajah tend to lurk. While I am in charge *shifts her shawl for good measure* there's not really any shenanigans I need to take care of. We are a well-mannered, well-behaved, low-drama group. ❤️ And that's the great thing about the Ajahs! We all have different attitudes and personalities we show. If you want to have a nic
  5. I've got a couple sudoku apps on my phone, as well as a couple of nanogram ones! I like to play puzzle games when I have a few minutes. I like Candy Crush and I'm playing Pokemon Puzzle Cafe, too. I tired to do a summer school class on logic puzzles this past summer, but not enough kids signed up. 😞 There are so many fun ones out there!
  6. Thanks for sharing this, @Rhea! I have cycles where I sleep so well, and cycles where I can't sleep at all. I think it's hormone based. Ugh.... I am recovering from surgery, so I bought a HUGE maternity pillow that looks like a big U. I love it! It's helped my tossing and turning, and no matter which way I face, I have a pillow for my legs. The only problem is it's hot! Hopefully it will be better when the weather cools down.
  7. I started Noom in August. I'm really enjoying it so far. As a therapy graduate, I think the psychological aspect is a little focused on beginners, but some of their hits and tips are really useful! I've lost 16 lbs so far, and it's been very easy. The program does restrict calories (I should be eating 1200 a day according to them), but I don't stress if I go over. I eat what I want, but I'm listening to my body's cues and stopping when I'm full. This has been very successful! I haven't cut out any food group. I'm still eating pizza every week. I went to a Europ
  8. Welcome @StarRisk! I look forward to any tips you can give us!
  9. I love My Fair Lady! It's such a fantastic film! @JamesBrown, your review of Max and Mary sounds amazing. I'm going to have to check it out! @PiedPiper, which version of Rebecca did you watch? I've seen a few versions and I think they both were decent. The Hitchcock is the most famous, but we watched another version in high school after we read the story. It was closer to the source material, I think. My spouse and I saw Tenet in theaters (social distanced and wearing masks) twice! It was so, so, so amazing! It's coming out on DVD next month I believe
  10. 1. Why did you choose your Ajah? (If you are a Warder, I'd like to hear why this Ajah, as well as why you chose your path) I like to think of myself as logical, but when I was looking at all the Ajah choices (way back in the day), the White Ajah's website (they were all hosted outside Dragonmount at that time) had a list of math equations. I knew this was the home for me! I've stayed, though, because I love the members here! We tend to lurk, but I know I can count on any one of them if needed! ❤️ 2. Where are you from/where do you live? Phoenix, Arizona,
  11. Hello @Phaedra! I'm late to the party, but I'm so glad you stopped in to share this with us! For your answer of Star Trek or Star Wars, care to share more details? What's your favorite Star Wars movie? Which Star Trek captain do you love the most? I always find it funny that we put those two as rivals when so many of us like them both!
  12. I wouldn't mind either if the content is handled properly. The movie Stardust, for example, was amazing! They were able to put the content in the two hour time frame, and they even added some extra flair that was not included in the book. I really loved that film. Of course, epic fantasy would be better suited to TV, as Mother and Kukasö said!
  13. Mashiara ~ Head of the White Ajah I'm looking forward to cooler temperatures! We were still in the high 90s F this week! UGH
  14. Exciting news dropped this past Wednesday: The official @WoTonPrime social media account released the first audio trailer from the Amazon Prime Wheel of Time television show. You can watch/listen to the clip below: audio trailer Oct 2020.mp4 There’s already a plethora of speculation about what scene and characters this can be. Madeleine Madden (who plays Egwene al’Vere) confirmed on Instagram that the voices do belong to Egwene and Perrin. But when does the scene take place? The battle noises in the back suggest Winternight (or during Bel Tine as showrunn

  18. This #WoTWednesday had some major announcements. First, the @WoTonPrime book club concluded its read of The Eye of the World. This introduced so many new readers to this wonderful series we know and love. Our fandom is growing! The book club doesn’t currently have plans to start The Great Hunt, but we hope they will continue with this as the Amazon Prime show gets closer to completion. To celebrate reaching the end of The Eye of the World, @WoTonPrime rewarded us with this snippet of a video, starting on the excerpt from The Eye of the World where it introduces the Winespring I

  20. This past weekend, Dragon Con celebrated all the things we love in fandom. The convention went online rather than in person, and that gave many people who can’t make the trek to Atlanta, Georgia the opportunity to see what this fantastic con has to offer. There were quite a few Wheel of Time themed panels throughout the event—not surprising with all the recent updates with the Amazon Prime television show. Jason Denzel, Jennifer Liang, and Thom DeSimone had a speculation hour in the “DragonCon High Fantasy Track Presents Wheel of Time TV Show Speculation.” The topics
