I can’t decide quite how credible I think this is, the way he describes it anyway. “She also needs a guy who’s gonna say ‘Yes Ma’am!’” makes it seem like an exaggeration and a dig. Maybe she has fallen into a common trap for successful athletes and is getting bad advice/surrounding herself with sycophants. But they Read more

Multiply legitimate challenges in relationships by factors of “hyper-masculine environment” (pro sports) and “woman-in-masculine-space,” and a massive proportion of hetero men would peace out. “I need to be the primary career and ego in the relationship,” is pretty standard in the lives of male pro athletes, just most Read more

“It was just a bunch of old rich dudes banging drugged prostitutes in front of each other and I kind of think that is the point. It was creepy, and depressing.” I absolutely agree, and I was glad the violence played out with Bezzarides coming close to being killed, but not being stripped, beaten, raped or almost-raped Read more

Oh I had not listened to “Desperately Wanting” in soooo long, and now I am happily reminiscing about the most fun and lovely summer makeout crush EVAR. I am not listening to this song. I’m sure it will find my way to me before this summer is over. I will cast down my eyes and think about how I sure hope Uncle Ezra has Read more

So are we aware that the first paragraph is about Taylor Swift in Maxim, not Taylor Kitsch in Elle? Or are we just skipping that part. Anyway... Read more

I feel your pain. I like how, even if you itemize your hours, probably cut out some of your time and some paralegal time, show everything you fronted for travel, evidence development, probably expert witness consultations and initial reports, maybe even a hearing or two, so freaking many clients still act like you're Read more

Well *I* congratulate you on your first settlement, because I know that took some blood sweat and tears to get to! I will be here to hug you when your client is underwhelmed with the result, or straight up resents you for not getting more (or less?) or accuses you of taking too many fees. I also hope you told the "too Read more

Kathie Lee. Are you sure you weren't inspired by the incomparable 28-year-old phenomenon and fellow famous t.v. personality, Jenna Maroney?

Yes! Courtney Shane is my spirit animal! At a certain point in my life, it was good for me to hear her talk about how being nice never got anybody anywhere, and say things like, "I don't care if your little sister just locked herself into the walk-in freezer. Courtney Shane is priority one." :D

EXACTLY. I actually got hired at my first clerking job because I'd been a legal secretary before, and the full-time had insisted on taking a two-week vacation that year—the first time off she'd taken in something crazy like four years. She was not paid for her time off. I think it would have been more of an issue for Read more

Don't you just love how no matter how many hours or years you put in, no matter the quality of your work, and no matter how many hours or years you'll put in after your leave, the only thing that matters to some people is three measly months of inconvenience while your body recovers and you sustain the life of the Read more

Of course. Not arguing that that's outside the realm of possibility, nor saying I know these situations with any certainty, just speculating based on what these people chose to share.

I wouldn't know anything about the possible connection to hormonal changes, but at least you recognized it and cared enough to do something about it. It's easy for both partners in a relationship to get complacent and inattentive, whether that means someone is lazy about sex, or ignores other areas of the Read more

Absolutely! The whole of the relationship should involve attention and caring, from the way you decide on dinner to the way you fight to the way you get it on.

I had the same thought. In the second spreadsheet, she's going to bed in a teddy, going to bed naked, giving a blow job to try to get her man interested. The first one doesn't describe anything he's doing to try to get her in the mood. I mean, start with a neck nuzzle and try to kiss her maybe? I've had more than one Read more

Thanks for this. I was looking for a place to add that, in most states, the parents can mutually agree on a shared custody schedule that is something other than the "non-custodial parent gets every other weekend" standard statutory default. Most judges in most states would love it if more parents presented them with a Read more

So, Peterson was punished, rightly or wrongly, for mocking her white male classmates through this picture. We should move on from her transgression because it was officially and unequivocally punished. We could spend some time poking around at the more widespread racism and classism she's criticizing—the kind that Read more

The "you kept wanting to raise the bar!" comment makes me think maybe the reason they didn't do it the night before he left is because he wanted whatever the next thing was, but she didn't want to because she was already outside her comfort zone. Then he chose no sex over the exact act(s) he wanted and that's the Read more

I noticed that. It was like an "Engaging will only escalate it," best effort to neutralize kind of move. Which might be likely to come from someone with experience not-escalating serious, nasty conflicts. The whole thing sucks.
