  1. Well y'all said everything I would have said 6 months ago. I'm just supremely pissed that nam one if y'all PM'd me out of my pandemic funk last fall so I could join in real time. #notforlazyfans
  2. My guess is that a purposeful pregnancy was the controlling older boyfriend's idea to force Kate to be tied to him. Especially after her family breaking her out at the cabin. Remember how he would love bomb her after every abusive incident? I think he did that times 20 after the cabin, and convinced her that her having his baby would force the Pearsons to accept him. Yes! That story sounded super fake. This explanation makes sense. In this forum many imply that the show benevolently let Chrissy Metz off the hook from her original contract. But there is little doubt in my mind
  3. I live just outside the Loop (near Streeterville/River North) with the tiniest Jewel, Mariano's and Targets on earth. I've found that my best bet for paper towels, toilet paper, disinfectant and wipes is to hit them all up first thing in the morning when they open. Same with CVS and Walgreen's. I can usually find one or another of the items. Since you exercise early that might be an option. I can sweep 4-5 in an hour because I go straight to the cleaning and paper goods aisles and leave. Also, the managers at Jewel, CVS and Target will often tell you when a shipment is coming in so you kn
  4. I think how non-working celebrities pay for their expensive lifestyles is often a point of curiosity for us commonfolk. It's not limited to Harry and Meghan, nor even Royals. Though I will say as an American the idea of having billionaires solely through birthright forever and ever Amen makes me ill. There is no question that Harry and Meghan live an expensive lifestyle including travel and staff, all of which is paid for somehow. It wasn't free to move to Canada then LA, nor for them and then Harry to fly home. And somebody's cleaning those mansions - not likely the two of them. So I thi
  5. Dont forget Money-ano's (Mariano's). I live downtown so my grocery options are Jewel-Osco, Mariano's, Whole Foods and the two tiniest Targets on earth. The money I save on driving has definitely been poured into groceries. Add the ridiculous taxes (water tax? WATER TAX!) and the only time I miss Atlanta is on grocery day.
  6. I just really want to thank all you guys for posting here. I've been lurking all through the last thread and this one. I live alone and am still vigilant about safety (always masked when I'm out even when I run and at work, limited optional trips, active social distancing, no indoor activities, etc.) which makes me a unicorn amongst my colleagues here in Chicago and my family in Atlanta. I've lost almost all interest in tv so I can't participate in most of the rest of the site anymore. But I feel at home here. So thank you!
  7. Please watch Get Out. Nothing I would consider torture porn. And Jordan Peele continues his master class in the psychological horrors of just existing, especially as a Black American. This. Forget JLo, Lupita Nyong'o is the one who was robbed of acting noms.
  8. Y'all are way more generous than I am. All I can think about this finale is how pissed I am that I paid for a whole month of HBO for that. Just like Issa and Prentiss (and Amanda obvi) seem to think they broke some major ground with 16 minutes of PPD storyline, they don't seem to realize what character-burning damage they've done to Molly. It feels like they don't watch their own show to not realize that Molly's words and actions this season took what could have been from-college-to-real-adults growing pains and morphed it into scorched-earth-on-that-former-friend territory. Molly di
  9. Has it though? They are both at such different and more mature places now. Even wanting to do a post mortem is a big sign of maturity. Sharing their hopes, dreams and recent realizations about themselves with no filter is another. I mean they just turned 30. Their relationship started in college and many of those are difficult to last through the broke-ass-finding-myself 20s. Now that they're both grown and they clearly had a good foundation, would it be terrible for them to try again?
  10. I agree. I was thinking of Toni as a version of Max and Molly as a version of Toni. Max's one-that-got-away was even named Greg! (I had forgotten that.) All three are fashionable, independent, picky about men, and, of course, dark-skinned women. Molly is career-focused like Max and selfish (and bad at relationships) like Toni. Issa is the heart of the group who holds them all together like Joan did for their group. And Molly is her college BFF like Toni was Joan's. I just watched the first episode of Living Single but I can't remember if Khadijah and Max were college friends. I hope
  11. Mabel Moment: I just started back working out since I packed on this COVID-19 lbs. And today was my 4th day running. When I was finished, I was so proud of myself and I was like, "Day 4!" 👍🏾 And then I thought of Mabel and cracked myself up in the middle of a Chicago sidewalk. Speaking of Regine: I've been watching Living Single reruns on Hulu and a thought occurred. Does Max = Toni Childs = Molly? There is a decided through-line on multiple levels. Hmmm...
  12. It's working. My Mom swears she's getting high off of CBD gummies. And she should know better. She's 62 and actually did smoke pot.
  13. That scene where Molly is in the Ethiopian restaurant waiting for her food, sees Issa getting out of the car and says to herself, "Here we go," I read it differently than many of you do. I thought she was waiting for Issa to come in because she saw Issa was coming in. Not to be petty and wait for Issa to grovel. I thought the "here we go" was a recognition of the fact that this encounter - whatever it may be - was not going to be easy. Not only did they have Molly's blowup between them, but it had been months since they had had anything like a real conversation without simmering resentmen
