I'm with you, he seems like a tool.

Kudos for the hat, but whatever this thing is looks like a self-indulgent disaster of epic proportions. And an epic ego to match.

@mamamia-user-482898552 because female doctors tend to be more sympathetic to female pain. They also tend to be more sympathetic to the psychological impact and of mental illness. It sounds like a cliche but cliches exist for a reason. Obviously this is general and doesn't apply to ALL male and female doctors- #notallwomen (ha)

Oh hoorah, let's all breathe a sigh of relief that we can all have access to Archetypes again, possibly the single most self-indulgent and over-produced podcast ever to exist.


Something tells me she'll have learnt nothing from that experience and the next offering will be much the same. I'm neither a lover nor a hater but the prospect of this woman ever doing something that isn't highly scripted, edited, filtered, manufactured etc is less than zero- the irony that she's always banging on about "authentic self" and "organic" is so...😒

The problem with this look (or one of many) is that unless you're wearing the really expensive/designer versions of the fur coats, leather pants, gold jewellery etc...budget versions look REALLY cheap. Even mid-range versions look cheap. And it's not welcoming to mix and match eg: where one main expensive item will make the rest seem similar, it's the complete opposite. A single pair of cheap hoop earring or a faux leather boot and your whole outfit

 looks like it came from Shein. ðŸ˜ģ Best just to leave it to the loaded mob wives I think.

Emily needs to find some hobbies and interests. I am 100% Sally's facial expressions watching this 😂

Aside from the last, this list should be called "everything to read if you want to induce clinical depression". And as a literature major I'm sending out a flare: do not under any circumstances attempt Moby Dick unless you want to take it a step further and bore yourself to death. ðŸģ

Well, I must say that by that point in the movie, given what else we've seen thus far, my reaction to the grave scene was "Yep, that seems about right". It's only after reading about everyone else's reaction that I questioned whether mine was a bit...off centre? 😅

Either way it's a brilliant movie and everyone should see it. It's literally the first time I've been able to sit through a movie from beginning to end in YEARS. Probably don't watch it with your parents though. ðŸŠĶðŸŋ🎎

Am I the only person who looks at these lists and am 100% convinced I'd absolutely smash a red carpet look? Me, sitting here in my 5yro pj shorts and manky tshirt, saying "Who are their f**ing stylists? Where are their friends to tell them maybe try the other dress?".... 😆

Mine was bright yellow and cost $1200 including insurance or registration or whatever all the boring expensive stuff is (this wasn't the ye ol' days where you have to account for inflation, it was 2003). It could not be killed. Once the brakes stopped working while I was driving in the middle of the city, it caught on fire twice and by the end it had no bumper bars, no hubcaps and two of the windows had fallen inside the doors. But it drove off happily into the sunset with its new owner and it's the only car I ever reminisce about. His name was Carson. 💛

This "crazy" girl agrees and can confirm: the flip exists. Although I'd add that even when it's SO obvious it's occurred, men will remain oblivious as to why things suddenly went off and will just think it's "one of those things". Self-awareness isn't their strong suit, generally speaking 😐


(Side note: the Dolly Alderton book was such a disappointment.  It's just so...average. â˜đïļ)

Ooooh, the boilersuit 😍



laurenella January 10, 2024

No, no, and no. The Jacob Elordi bit you got right but everything else here is so wrong. No amount of abs can make up for the fact that Jeremy looks like he hasn't had a shower in a decade, quirky suits and a lot of Photoshopping can't make Barry *not* look like the weirdest, creepiest manchild ever and if Ben Stiller and Tom Cruise are the best representatives of those who have come before....nup. Fail. Now let's get back to Jacob and reality 😀😍

And this is why I miss the good old days where magazine ruled the young girl world. I grew up as a diehard Dolly and Girlfriend devotee and as a result, thanks to Dolly Doctor, a part of me still kind of believes that almost every problem in life can be solved by joining a netball team. ðŸĪ·â€â™€ïļ

A few weeks ago I was standing in line at the supermarket and overheard the guy in front of me say "Do you want me to bring some biccies home for din dins?" over the phone, oressukably to his girlfriend (I hope). It made my skin crawl so much that it was either move to another line asap or punch him in the back of the head. I'm not exaggerating when I say it made me feel VIOLENT. I wonder if it's similar to an aversion to ASMR- it illicits the same response for me 😎ðŸĪŪ

Showgirls is a masterpiece. Although somewhat disturbing is that me and my sister reminisce about it as one of our childhood kid movies, same with Howard the Duck (a movie in which a human woman shags an alarmingly smarmy duck and where you catch a topless lady duck in the bath. He also works in a brothel for a bit). It's probably not that surprising that another one of our childhood faves routinely shows up on 'Worst Movies Ever' lists- Striptease.

To know that these days people complain about their kids seeing Bluey's dad weigh himself is hilarious. Get a grip, I turned out fine.

I'd your wedding involves flower "installations", a boat, a whole weekend getaway etc. you do not get to tell your guests to give you money for your "honeymoon fund" or "to buy a house". Like, to be perfectly frank, f**K off. 😆

The introduction of the word "girlies" into the zetigeisty tik tocky vernacular makes me feel physically sick. It's an ick beyond all icks. In that respect I'm happy to take the un-funness of being a woman if it means I get to avoid being as a  "ironically" self-patronising "girlie". Blergh. (Close second or equal first: the complete tone deafness and lack of awareness that is "cozzilivs". F**K me. Never heard a man say it, which says...something). 

laurenella December 20, 2023

From the child-free end, I feel like the only way I've managed to maintain any friendships post kids is if I just accept that I'm never going to be the priority. For the most part I'm fine with that- I get there are multilayered stressors involved that mean something that seems simple to me is likely a minefield for them. However. There are only so many times you can be repeatedly cancelled on or unconsidered or uninvited etc etc before the lesser priority just turns into complete abandonment and disrespect.
