    S04.E17: I'm in Love

    Meh. The show kinda fizzled out in the end. It was pointless getting new Greg back just so he could revolve around Rebecca and a whole episode about Nathaniel learning to let go and in the end, he didn' t do that. Ah well, at least career wise, they both moved on. And all the fuss about Darryl's baby last season and he ends up with a girlfriend who got pregnant pretty quick. And yes, he' s annoying. I wanted to know more about White Josh instead. As for the musical, also meh.and pointless with recycled songs. The songs seemed randomly chosen and the concert was all over the place.

    I actually wasn' t referring to you personally. It was more of a general remark based on past experiences of this thread. I guess I just felt defensive because I've never warmed up to Meghan and I keep hearing how people who don't love or like her are racist haters, easily fooled by tabloids, delusional, etc.. Not referring to anybody here in particular. I just find Meghan snark worthy the way others love to snark on the Kardasians, Gwyneth Paltrow, etc.

    No, the British tabloids would not have criticised Meghan for not having a shower because showers are not a British/ Commonwealth custom as far as I can tell. Low- key would have been a safer step in these troubling Brexit times. Would they have found something else to criticise? Yeah, eventually. But then again, none of the royals are free from criticism and 'extravagance' is one of the issues the press have been quick to jump on. Yes the press like to blow things up. So knowing all this. the PR palace team must be more careful. And I think I can criticise Meghan without being compared to delusional stalkers.

    Nope, still a PR misstep imo, given the fallout. No I don't expect low-rent anything from Meghan now that she is a royal but anything that requires the British public or Commonwealth royal watchers to understand New York ways or layout of New York hotels or American bridal shower traditions of the rich --a tradition we don't have in our countries -- well, what can I say? PR palace team not alert enough otherwise there would have been no need for further explanations in the first place.

    I still think the extravagant baby shower is a PR misstep. It turned into a pap walk / merch promo and the palace had to step in and explain that the very expensive trip was privately funded. Yes, I suppose it was but the fact that they had to do it in the first place shows the palace PR team is simply not alert or savvy enough.

    Kate and other royals have also gotten a lot of pantyhose-level criticism. Sarah Ferguson from upper middle class family got her baptism of fire early even before she gave birth. Any woman Harry married would have received the same media criticism regardless of class or race. Cressida or Chelsea would have been targeted as well. As for leeway, I just mean that the further you are from the throne, the more freedom you have. Yeah, 'hate' and "love' here are loose terms. I doubt there is an army of enraged psychos out there plotting to hunt down Meghan with a knife. Regardless, the monarchy will survive with or without any changes coming from Meghan.

    Sources, sources. So which one should we believe? Maybe like someone said here earlier, she really is a diva bitch behind the scenes. Who knows? Only time will tell if it's a case of no smoke without fire. As for being a breath of fresh air, so was Sarah Ferguson in the beginning. And no, Meghan isn't going to change a thousand --year old institution assuming it needs any changes in the first place. They' re giving her more leeway than Kate but that' s because she' s never going to be queen. One day soon Harry and Meg will be as unimportant as Andrew is now. I frankly take the recent spate of stories with a big pinch of salt, however. I follow the going-ons of the royals for the fun of it. I don't adore any one of them and I dont give a damn about them except for the entertainment they provide me. I don' t hate.Meghan but if I want to, I will. She gets her fair share of love from devoted fans so if others want to hate her for non - racial reasons, feel free.

    Misheard Lyrics (Mondegreens): There's A Bathroom On the Right

    Simon and Garfunkel's 'The Boxer' - about this poor guy who comes to New York seeking a job - has one line which I thought was 'I get no offers but a come-on from the horse on 7th Avenue'. Later I learned that word was whores on 7th Avenue.

    2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

    It's good that France and Belgium both did so well. They were the only two teams for whom this World Cup was 'win or bust'. France had to win to make up for losing the Euro 16 final and for Belgium's golden generation, it was the last chance. The other big teams didn't really 'have' to win.

    Figure Skating

    I too would love to see more spirals and layback spins and have them hold the position longer than 4 seconds. I think the biellman is compulsory in the short - too bad because I don't find it a pretty move. Almost every skater seem to feel the need to grab their legs. Not pretty.

    I think most Brits are more or less indifferent about Meghan or Kate. As for me, I keep up with royal families in Europe and Japan purely for the entertainment factor. I don't have to like Meghan. It doesn't make me a racist or a snob. I don't care about Kate either and she's white.

    I belong to a royal forum and many posters there are lukewarm about her. But it's not because of her race, I assure you. There are other reasons which I won't get into. She's just not my cup of tea. Many of the posters there don't like Kate either and she's white.

    Jack is different because they need a big favour from him. The other supernatural beings you can afford to anger, mock snd enrage.

    I admit we don't know whether Dean would have told Sam about the stabbing and kill threat eventually. Maybe he would have.or maybe not. I was merely referring to another poster's theory that Dean was in no mood to share info. Because keeping secrets is bad, right? Also, I was merely referring to the poster's theory that helping Jack might be seen as a betrayal by Dean. I really hope that's not true. DittyDotDot --- you mean Dean told Sam already that he would kill Jack before this ep? I can't recall. Still, that's not the same as threatening Jack to his face and spooking him. Not that I care about Jack's tender feelings but you know, since he has the power to bring back Mary and I assume Dean mght want her back
