I don't give a good gorram about relevant, Wash. Or objective. And I ain't so afraid of losing something that I ain't gonna try to have it. You and I would make one beautiful baby. And I want to meet that child one day. Period.

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."

Jen, motivation~ma!

My appointment was therapy, and I’m home now. My car should be done today. I’m supposed to be doing clean up, but I’m too busy enjoying solitude.

I am a woman of various inclinations and only some of the time are they to burn everything down in frustration

Enjoying solitude is more important than cleaning up!

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

Enjoying solitude is more important than cleaning up!

I second that emotion!

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

Here's my current watch list:

JZ and I are watching Wednesday and enjoying it quite a lot.

Going into it I expected it to be more like the Addams Family movies, but in reality it's very much Dark Academia Hogwarts. So if the idea of a Slytherin lead rooming with a Huffelpuff at magic school while they try to suss out the evident crush the headmistress had on your mother when they were roomies whilst digging into a Monster On The Loose and various secret societies is your thing....then this is your thing.

Jenna Ortega is fantastic as Wednesday, with perfectly pitched dark humor/snark tone but with an interesting undercurrent of Wednesday being a bit ADHD or possibly on the spectrum.

She had a dance bit at the Yule Ball, I mean Raven's Ball, to the Cramps "Goo Goo Muck" which was both incredibly funny and goofy and also very cool. My favorite dance scene on a TV show since Aubrey Plaza's dance in Legion to Nina Simone.

Here is the dance scene if you need an enticement: [link]

There's a bit of Gilmore Girls, a bit of Twin Peaks, direct references to the Addams family movies (and the TV show), and a whole lot of Hogwarts.

Gwendoline Christie as a gigantic and gorgeous Hitchcock Blonde headmistress is my favorite other element.

All three of us are catching up on Only Murders In the Building.

I am myself watching The Peripheral and enjoying that a lot.

We have yet to watch Interview With The Vampire but that's next in our queue.

Oh, and we've started to watch A League of Their Own.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

Oh, and we've started to watch A League of Their Own.

It is so fucking good. I'm a little surprised it got made, honestly.

Nice. Sigh, there is too much TV. I have been trying to watch so little of it and I still am way behind! But this does look right up my alley - as long as I didn't know that for sure I could pretend it wasn't hanging over me needing to be watched
