Today's not technically my last here at Pajiba. I'm a completist, so you will get a final Sherlock post from me this Sunday night. But that's a strange time to say goodbye. Sunday night. So we're going to get it out of the way today. I've already cried my fill because of all the sweet things both the staff and the commenting community has written for me today so this post seems a little late. My posts were always a little late anyway. But I *had* to say something. And who knows, friends, this may not be goodbye at all. Dustin, peach that he is, has said I can come running back to y'all whenever I want. But it's at least a farewell and that honestly breaks my heart. So I thought I'd express my fondness and my regret in traditional Robinson fashion. It's self-indulgent, it's insider-y and, brace yourselves, poppets, there will be gifs. Know this: I Pajiba Love you all.

Pajiba Love Express
Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
