  1. Veterinary and Animal Rescue Shows

    Thanks for passing along the articles. I don't normally bother with online BTS clips, but I'll definitely make an exception for this! Can't get enough of these animals and their human co-conspirators. I'm getting sad in advance about the unknown keeper's retirement. Elephants are the best.
  2. More on abuses within USA Swimming from The Orange County Register: 100s of USA swimmers were sexually abused for decades and the people in charge knew and ignored it, investigation finds. "Top USA Swimming executives, board members, top officials and coaches acknowledge in the documents that they were aware of sexually predatory coaches for years, in some cases even decades, but did not take action against them. In at least 11 cases either Wielgus or other top USA Swimming officials declined to pursue sexual abuse cases against high profile coaches even when presented with direct complaints, documents show. With some of the complaints, the decision not to pursue the case was made by Susan Woessner, USA Swimming’s current director of Safe Sport." Long article and very tough to read without screaming.
  3. I don't think there's an officially recognized day for this, so I'm making February 17 my No More Teen Dramas annual celebration. I've been peripherally aware of how pursed my mouth has been getting for a while, but after recent tries at Everything Sucks, 13 Reasons Why, The End of the Fucking World, Dark, Runaways, Greenhouse Academy, Alone Together, etc. I realized I no longer have any interest in TV teenagers. Especially angsty ones, which is all of them. #Goodbye #NotGonnaBother #TooOldForThis Whew!
  4. I like Trixie but will never understand why -- especially when impersonating someone -- she refuses to change up her look. Her very specific makeup not only is boring week after week, but Ru doesn't look like that! Same goes for her wardrobe choices. Did she honestly think she'd win the runway with that flower get-up? Or anything she's worn this season? Is she incapable of doing anything to her face other than cartoonishly exaggerated cheekbones and eyes? It's frustrating because I want her to do well. I hated seeing her in tears with self esteem in the toilet.
  5. It is silly, but I excuse myself by thinking of it as, "I hate those shows ... being shoved down my throat all the time." Dear friends, critics, and online commenters: Stop trying to make me watch!
  6. Miscellaneous Celebrity News

    Quote in the People magazine article by Amy's stylist, about her wedding dress: "She wanted it to be easy, she wanted to feel like herself and she wanted to have a great time and a great experience while wearing it. She wore flats, she didn’t need to wear a bunch of undergarments and it was just so easy and it felt right." Huh. Maybe a slip should have been part of the plan? Pettipants? Something.
  7. Prosecutors in L.A. have submitted aggravated rape charges against Danny Masterson that could carry a life sentence. The case is waiting approval by the D.A. Let's finally take this to court!
  8. S10.E06: Chin up

    Thank goodness. For once I agreed with Oliver -- we were all tired of seeing Lil' D in the bottom! Admittedly, I skip most of the couch arguments and contestant sniping, but I don't think Daniel has been nearly as snotty and cocksure as Josh has. Daniel's attitude sure got him on Anthony's bad side, though. Don't piss off people with the power to put you up for elimination, folks! Much nicer tattoos this week all around.
  9. I watched some Olympics coverage for the first time tonight and was so happy for Shaun White! I knew of him because of the relentless hype over his previous gold medals, but I don't exactly follow snowboarding. But his joy and tears for his win as the oldest contestant defrosted my cold heart a little. I made these tonight -- turned out really good!
  10. I've never understood her harsh makeup choices -- such heavy eyes and overly pale lipstick that washes her out. Hoda always looks great so if they share a makeup person, Kathie Lee must be requesting that look.
  11. 2018 network pilot season guide. The list of comedies kind of makes me tired -- it's all in the execution of course, but the loglines sound pretty weak. Dysfunctional family, dysfunctional family, dysfunctional family. This made me snort: "After losing the biggest case of her career and being shredded by the media, former prosecutor Maya Travis has left Los Angeles for a quiet life in rural Oregon. Eight years after her devastating defeat, the murderer strikes again, forcing Maya to return to Los Angeles to confront him one more time." Gee, from Marcia Clark? No kidding.
  12. Michelle Wolf gets her own late night show on Netflix. "The 32-year-old rising star, whose show does not yet have a name, is expected to make fun of everything and everybody, with no preaching or political agenda — unless, of course, it’s funny. “You can expect the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV,” she joked in a statement."
  13. Oy. That broad type of British sitcom humour is Not For Me, either. I have tried.
  14. Damn dieting. I had to bargain with my primary care physician that if I got my glucose level (HbA1c) down by two points in 90 days, she wouldn't make me see an endocrinologist.* My lab work is the week after next and I'm really hoping I did well enough. I tried to stick to fewer than 15 grams of carbs per meal and also started time restricted feeding for an 8-hour window each day. * I hate seeing specialists in general. For example, the cardiologist last month: a six-week wait for an appointment, 29 page patient history form, 90 minutes cooling my heels at the office, 25 minutes with the PA, 7 minutes with the great man himself, and a $50 co-pay. Come back in six months. Fuck that.
  15. The recap for episode one of Drag Race changes halfway through to the text for Top Chef, Project Runway, and others.
