To defend Pitt a bit, in that moment it probably didn’t occur to him that there were other women who had gone through abuse similar to Paltrow from that POS.

Good for him. The problem with society leaving women to this protector approach is it still centers the men. Women are their wives, girlfriends, sisters, nieces. The violation is not happening to real people, it’s happening to their wards. And if you are not worthy enough to be claimed as some man’s relative, you are

if you put just enough in there and stir while the spaghettios are really hot from the microwave, it melts and gets gooey. if you do it wrong, it turns into a rock of nastiness surrounded by a sad “tomato” sea

This sucks. I love Tom Holland’s Spiderman.

My trick is always to fill up my wishlist beforehand, and not look at the deals, just my list and see if some are discounted. Worked fine the last time, got a couple items I really needed, with really good discounts :)

Same! I have my great grandmother’s setting from c. 1918 which I inherited after my grandmother passed. We did have to get a new stone bc the original was given to my shitty uncle to use at some point and is lost to the sands of time/a pawn shop in Connecticut, so we just repurposed a diamond from a necklace my mom

This isn’t the first case of a YouTube channel person being a monster to their kids, right? There seems to be a trend building.

I would much prefer the parents of 3-13 year olds to march onto a plane wearing a sandwich board that reads “I’m aware of my responsibility to make sure my child does not kick your seat, throw food, or otherwise disturb you. Please let me know if I’m failing”

I’ve heard a similar trick for overcoming writer’s block, which is to intentionally write badly. Overuse adverbs, use grandiose language, start every sentence with the same word, etc. Easy enough to fix that stuff during revision, and it can help you overcome the little voice in your head telling you that you’re

I once had an amazing, almost life-changing creme brulee at a restaurant that no longer exists. It was so good that I almost had to close my eyes while eating it. Since then, I almost always will try a creme brulee if it’s on the menu because I will gladly suffer through 99 bad creme brulees (and most are truly mediocr

I have found shoes at Marshall’s that had no business being there and that is why I love Marshall’s. I check Marshall’s now the way my dog always checks the back left corner of our backyard fence: once there was a possum there, any day there might be another.

Is it weird that my take on this is that a man cost her her job? Because of sexual harassment?  I understand the conflict but still, maybe this could have been a teaching moment?

Once I was eating a slice of french silk pie backwards and saving the point for last, because imo, it is the best. My dad swooped in for "a taste" and stole my fucking point. I almost caused a scene.

The brilliance of Ikea is the RANGE. I can buy a $15 cardboard bookcase but I can also buy a $100 one made out of real wood. Either way I’m saving money over fussy furniture store pieces.

My nephew still uses the bed set we bought from Ikea 24 years ago. It's not all junk.
