I’ll sign the petition for this one!
As a frequent consumer of BBC shows, this is one of my favorite jokes in the whole series.
God this kills me. There is no way they were going to let that inbred clan into their home.
I read somewhere that the Palace is under renovations, but also read that the renovations were complete in 2018.
If you spend some time working retail in a place that has easily shoplift-able things, you start to recognize behavior patterns of folks who are about to shoplift. The thing is, places like Sephora have “shrink” aka theft built into their budgets already, so why an employee would give a shit about shoplifters, I don’t…
I see your drink-y swear-y Jesuits and raise you Greek Orthodox priests. Plus they’re not celibate so there’s a hefty helping of womanising thrown in too.
OMG this a thousand times. I went to a Jesuit univeristy (Loyola Marymount), and my dorm was located right next to the Jesuit quarters and they had some epic “socials.” I had a class with a couple of guys who graduated from Loyola High and they had frequent invitations to “socialize” with the brothers because there…
The beer deliveries to the Jesuit residence were legendary in my high school. We’d watch in math class as the distributor’s delivery guy rolled several dollies full of European beers too fancy for us to even know about every week. It was only 12 guys, but I think they had people over a lot.
Fun fact: he was also the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera in Toronto I think
Yeah. When I was in grad school, we’d have a monthly seminar where we were all assigned someone’s recent dissertation to read. We’d each have a chapter to go through and summaraize/critique. Since we were just lowly grad students, most of our efforts were on summarizing, since we generally weren’t in a position to…
People overestimate how prestigious a graduate degree from Oxford is. It’s really only prestigious if you are given a scholarship to study there. If you are self funded (which I would assume NW was... she couldn’t finish her degree there when she was a Rhodes scholar, so I’m guessing when she went back to Oxford a few…
Wow, that’s in part on Oxford, her supervisor and examiners. I wonder if her publishers had the book peer reviewed? From the link it doesn’t sound as if those cases were central to her thesis though.
Yes! My good friend is an academic and she mentioned this bit of information when we were chatting about Wolf’s interview. It’s one thing if it got past a regular editor, because commercial publishing is full of ‘fact-adjacent’ bullshit - no one really cares as long as it sells.
But this was her dissertation! Wtf?
And this is supposed to be a first display of an offering from a LUXURY brand. Meaning, big prices for ready-to-wear. Meaning, it should be impeccable.
Never before in the course of human events have so many words said so little.
Just shoehorning into this to say that Jezebel seems to be ignoring Fosse/Verdon - and Michelle Williams should be scooping up EVERY gold-plated tchotchke Hollywood hands out this year for her performance.
I don’t know what it is about Carly Rae’s music, but it really is perfect pop.
Came here to say the same thing. Dear god, the resemblance is unreal
I am so happy we all agree. It’s like Leelee Sobieski/Helen Hunt levels of the doppelganger.
