Our oven has an annoying safety feature: a 1-hour countdown timer that shuts the oven off when the time runs out. If you forget to turn the dial back up with longer-baking items or after preheating, the oven stops in the middle of baking. Still, I was able to salvage it. (The top isn't burnt, just really, really toasty.)
It has taken me years--YEARS!--to get my wife interested in black coffee. She would drink sweet, flavored lattes whenever she needed an afternoon pick-me-up, & just endure the stomach issues the milk caused. Finally, she tried a few pourovers & Americanos from decent shops & has come to the belated conclusion that black coffee isn't that bad. 😐
It's funny watching Marvel fans go batshit over Scorsese's comments about Marvel movies being theme-park fare & not cinema. I don't think Scorsese is writing off the genre as a whole, just the mediocrity with which Marvel has infused their films so far. Write an intelligent story, have talented actors, hire a talented director & there is potential. Christopher Nolan did it. Others can, too, if they'd only try.
Once again, it is a Star Wars series streaming behind a subscription service that has the most appeal to me over their widely released feature film:
‘Rogue One’ Writer Tony Gilroy Joins Cassian Andor ‘Star Wars’ Series at Disney Plus
The bigger issue is: Does anyone even care anymore?

I finally have my wife interested in getting a fountain pen, but she wants a thin one. I know she'll want to buy the cheapest one she finds, but she'd probably be willing to up the price if the pen is pretty. I'd like her first pen to be a nice experience so I can buy her a nicer one later (maybe a Waterman Hemisphere).
What can you suggest for a decent-quality, thin, pretty (girly) pen with a smooth fine nib that uses bottled ink? Sheaffer? Cross? Parker?
