Lol re Chris Messina. I have avoided watching Jessica Jones because I just can’t bear to see David Tennant, Doctor of my heart, play a malevolent psychopath.

I’ve been in love with Chris Evans since someone posted the Smaht Pahk commercial last week.  Still laughing at that.  SOOOOOO good.

1. I gasped out loud when I read Meghan’s reference to her miscarriage and got teary-eyed at her account of Harry’s heart breaking as he tried to comfort her. This was a fantastic op-ed; the anecdote about seeing a woman crying on the street in NYC and being told that this is how New Yorkers live - out in the open - Read more

Despite having 9 blood aunts, countless ‘aunties’ and many friends who discuss Everything “...the conversation remains taboo...” and being smart, well-read and an overly-analytical worrier about endless possibilities, I Never.Even.Considered it could happen to me!

Juno is also really good (and much more observant and adroitly written and well-structured than a lot of its detractors give it credit for) and people were wrong to backlash that one, too.

I gotta say, if you’re writing a letter and it starts out, “my ex, who is a piece of shit. . .” just nope that whole situation. Throw your hands ups. Say, nah, I’m good. Hit the eject button.

Ben Affleck reminds me of the kids I went to high school with who bought into that “one terrible mistake will ruin your life forever and making straight As is the only thing you should be doing right now“ and never enjoyed life until they realized that advice was bullshit and started acting like teenagers when they Read more

Yes and no. Generally judges won’t on their own rein in a witness unless the witness goes really far afield (e.g. cursing, calling names, rambling extensively, etc.).  The cross-examining attorney can ask the judge to direct the witness to answer the questions or to stop going off-topic, and can also move to strike if Read more

Agree, it was ridiculous to bring either child to the courtroom. Fernando isn’t a “hostile witness” - yes, he was being hostile, but that’s a phrase for when the person you call to the stand is antagonistic to your side. The cross-examination in general was batshit - you should never ask questions you don’t know the Read more

Haley was cross-examining Fernando - he was called by the prosecution.  You don’t declare the opposing side’s witness as a hostile witness - you only do that if it’s your own witness and you feel you need to cross-examine the person.

Was there something to Johnathan’s mother correcting Grace’s grammar? Is this a tell that he has mommy issues and finally just lost it? Or was that to help Grace see why he doesn’t talk to Mummy and is really just an abused child himself? Either way it was so smart to get Hugh Grant for this. He is such a charmer. He Read more

Why do people keep saying this? WB had David Ayer write the Suicide Squad Script in six weeks. It’s been three months since Chadwick’s death and it’s eight months until the film is set to start shooting. How is that not enough time for a new script?

I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Flash only has 1 or 2 more seasons left in it.  Batwoman is essentially starting over from scratch which probably won’t do it any favors either.  I’ll be surprised if the DC CW-verse is around 5 years from now.

Onlyfans is predatory on lonely people like restaurants are predatory on hungry people. If you get obsessed and cross the line with an online sex worker, that’s a problem with you, not them.

After the OnlyFans debacle I can’t believe anyone at Jez, the “supposedly feminist website” would have anything to do with her. She knows exactly what she did, and the fact that she won’t talk about it is all the proof I’ll ever need of that. She has ruined lives.
