Ok, the week is halfway over - we can get through the rest of it. Probably. Holy crap, this is a long-ass week, though! Thank you for your nice words yesterday about my old lady cat girl. She’s a good girl. I’m giving her all the scritches and (tiny) hugs that she’ll allow.
He can’t be this dumb, can he? I mean, seriously! I’m asking seriously: Does Trump actually think this is how it works? Or is he telling the dumbest lie ever thinking his “base” won’t understand anyway. How is this person in charge of our economy? HOW. He went to Wharton Business School! HOW DID HE GRADUATE?
Trump to Hannity tonight. This is … not how it works. pic.twitter.com/Odwc6cGcyO— Philip Bump (@pbump) October 12, 2017
With all the discussion of sexual harassment (and assault) by Harvey Weinstein (and many, many others), it’s disheartening to see how Twitter responded to reported dick pics. - (Revelist)
Andy Cohen from those Real Housewives shows (or aftershows? I don’t know. I’ve never seen one.) will be Anderson Cooper’s new co-host for New Year’s Eve on CNN, which I have also never seen. Soooo, I don’t have much to add to this, I guess. - (Dlisted)
This coat from Alexander McQueen’s 2018 collection is pretty killer. Everything else is frilly. Mostly, though, I just want to move those pieces of hair out of the models’ faces! - (GFY)
We don’t have Kroger here and I *used* to be a little bitter about it. But now that they are carrying this monstrosity, I’m a little relieved. Who comes up with this shit? - (IB)
Mark Ruffalo, BE CUTER! Ugh, he’s too adorable. Ruffalo live-streamed his attendance and entrance at the premiere of Thor: Ragnarok last night. Then he put his phone in his pocket… without turning off the live-stream. Whoops! - (Buzzfeed)
If anyone’s daughter was going to be a debutante, I would definitely guess it would be Reese Witherspoon’s. However, wouldn’t you expect her to make her debut in the South? Well you would be wrong! She’s coming out in Paris. - (Celebitchy)
Hey, you know that Weinstein jab that Seth MacFarlane threw when he hosted the Oscars? The one about the 5 Best Supporting Actress nominees no longer having to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein? MacFarlane wasn’t joking when he said it. He was pissed. - (THR)
Leah Remini seems to be getting a lot more (and better) work since leaving $cientology. Good for her! Her next project is a buddy flick with Jennifer Lopez. - (Lainey)
Lisa Bee loved Louis Sachar’s Holes when she read it in 5th grade. After that she loved the 2003 movie. She decided to revisit the novel for the first time as an adult. The pacing is fast, "but there is a lot to be said about the themes, if only given a little space to breathe and take time to really consider them…" As an adult, Lisa Bee found many more themes and much more richness. Have you read the book or watched the movie? (Cannonball Read 9)
QUICK, before you get sick of the Porgs from the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, you really should watch this. The Star Wars theme song made entirely from Porg sounds. Goddamn, I love the internet sometimes!
