    S09.E20: Un Petit Hangover

    After that whole breathless story about how she had to buy a 30 year old Burberry coat from a consignment store, Camille walked into that dinner wearing a leopard print coat. Was that the Burberry coat? I did not think of Burberry as a brand that made leopard print coats. It looked like she got it from Rinna's closet or something. And does one need a heavy coat like that in SoCal?

    Years and Years

    I've seen the first episode and mostly enjoyed it. I love Emma Thompson, but also found myself liking the other actors as well. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but it was an interesting start, though yeah, it's a little too topical and close to home. The ending, though, with Edith and the bombing grabbed me, so I will be back for more.

    S09.E19: Thirst Impressions

    I think that was when Erika said something like, "Oh, so LVP is a sniper from the side." I may not have that right, but yes, I think Yolanda poisoned the well before Erika even met LVP.
  4. Bill was so aflutter that he kept overtalking Dan Savage, who was trying to say that Hitler's concentration camps didn't start out as death camps, but that is where they ended up. When Dan finally was able to get a word in edgewise and make that point, Bill asked if Dan thinks that's where these camps are heading. How I wish Dan had said he doesn't know where they are heading, but that he does know they are getting worse and worse, and then asked Bill where HE thinks these camps are going? Like, what is the resolution that Bill sees that doesn't lead to deaths of children, especially since asylum seekers are dying in our custody already, as will more since we are not providing soap, much less adequate medical care for the people we locked up. I mean, we have already normalized a term for taking babies away from their mothers and locking them up separately - family separation. What else might be normalized before Bill thinks it's ok to call them concentration camps?

    Mary Louise cannot take Ziggy away because Jane doesn't have a career. She has a job, a nice place for Ziggy to live, and he's well taken care of and goes to school.

    S01.E02: Stuntin' Like My Daddy

    I gave this two episodes and I am out. I'm tired of unrelentingly grim stories about addiction, abuse, sexual assault and coercion, rape and violence.

    S06.E16: Mt. Everest and Sherpa people

    The only way I could enjoy being at 29,000 feet above sea level is on an airplane, sitting in first class with a drink. Looking out the window will do just fine!

    S06.E16: Mt. Everest and Sherpa people

    Yes, yes, yes. Every year, they announce who was the first climber to reach the top of Everest that season. It's always the sherpas who are first, but they don't get the recognition, as if they don't count while the person they guided does.

    It seems like a manslaughter charge and conviction is also something the women would want to avoid. I guess Celeste could pay for Bonnie's defense, but otherwise, she'd be sunk. Bonnie doesn't look like she is as wealthy as the other women.
  10. Tinsley, too! She was slurring her words and going at Lu. As if Tinsley doesn't also have drunken behavior and arrest in her background! I thought she mentioned it because the women were bitching about her being late, and she told them why she was late.

    S06.E16: Mt. Everest and Sherpa people

    Everest! I have been irrationally fascinated by the yahoos who decided to climb Everest on a whim ever since Jon Krakauer's book "Into Thin Air." I've seen every Discovery Channel documentary on multiple climbing seasons, and was proud of myself for recognizing Russell Brice's voice in John's segment. Brice is one of the expedition leaders and he was the one saying these fools were idiots and he hoped they heard him say that over the radio. John mentioned all the garbage that litters Everest and the cleaning expeditions that Nepal has started. He did not mention that Everest is also littered with dead bodies that climbers actually have to climb over or pass nearby on the trail. They are not able to bring them down when they are high above Camp 2, so there they stay. John also didn't mention the number of people who lose toes, fingers, noses and other body parts to frostbite, or the people who become blind because they are fools and take off their protective glasses to take pictures. I think the expedition companies should refuse to lead climbers unless they have experience climbing other high peaks first. But money always wins. It's ridiculous that these climbers are so ego driven and want the bragging rights when the sherpas do the hardest work to get them up there and typically climb to the top several times a season long before any of these so-called mountaineers do.
  12. She's giving me Bette Midler vibes in that picture.

    It's like, dude, don't order the fucking fish then! Order something less likely to poison you if that's your worry.

    Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

    None of these people are paying any attention. CBP has said it will not accept any donations of toothpaste or anything else for the asylum seekers. Lemire is an idiot. Yes, asylum seekers need to be detained until their claims are processed. However, they are being imprisoned, not detained. Imprisoned like sardines in dog cages and freezers, children are being separated from their parents, and no one is being given basic toiletries or blankets and children are sleeping on concrete floors. We are taking away their medicines they brought with them. They are not getting enough food. They are drinking from toilets because we aren't giving them water. They are not getting sufficient medical care. Unrelated slightly older children are forced to take care of babies and toddlers and don't have the resources to change diapers, or bathe them. This is child abuse and human rights violations and unconscionable and unacceptable. Asylum seekers are not criminals. They have done nothing illegal or wrong. They are legally presenting themselves at the border to seek asylum, like they are supposed to do. Then we dehumanize them, torture them, and talk about zero tolerance while these people, human beings, get sick and die, which they have started doing.

    Kathryn and Craig are very similar. They are both inept at simple, life things.
