@mamamia-user-482898552 petition to start calling him Scott "Baldrick" Morrison, master of the cunning plan! It's amazing the way people will defend him, I saw people say that it just proves how hard working he is. 🤦‍♀️

I've never walked out of a film at the cinema - it's too expensive! We don't go very often, so we wait for something we're fairly sure we'll like. I didn't hate Red Sparrow, but I don't remember the torture stuff (I have a terrible memory for movies). I do remember Jennifer Lawrence somehow being able to change her hair from dark brown to perfect blonde with box dye in a crappy hotel bathroom - more of a fantasy than Harry Potter! Agreed that Dune was deadly dull, even with a pretty good cast.

Yep, sorry Sean, but that's a bad take on the subject. You wouldn't do a fight scene without any coordination because you're worried about "spontaneity", people would get hurt. Same thing with a sex scene.

If he wanted to make sure there were backups in case the ministers got Covid (side note: do they not have deputies already?), why did they all have to be him? He messed up, he got found out, and now he's grasping at straws trying to find any excuse he can.

It's clearly the world's most useless office, but it's also exactly what you'd expect from Kim. I imagine there's a dull grey corporate office somewhere, full of people doing the actual work... with things like pens, and post-its, and aesthetically unpleasing filing cabinets.

So, as I understand it: ministers have certain powers to make decisions about situations that fall under their portfolio. They can take advice from the PM and others in the party, but ultimately the decision rests with them, and they are responsible for it. The point of this is so that the power is spread over many people - no one person has the final say over many areas. But Morrison made himself co-minister, giving himself the power to make decisions and override those of the actual ministers. And worse, he did it in secret, didn't even tell the ministers concerned, with no oversight over how he used these powers. Isn't this... like... a dictatorship?
(Also: for someone who so often said "it's not my job"... seems like it kinda was 🤷🏻‍♀️)

I really like Tom and Sarah-Jane's, and Dylan and Jenny's. A couple of issues I have with these bathrooms though. They are such huge spaces with such little storage, for one thing. Those free standing tubs look beautiful but I always think they will be a pain in the neck to clean, especially trying to clean all the fluff and hair that is going to get caught in the narrow gap between the bath and the wall! And the open shower design is fine in summer, but winter in Gisbourne gets very cold - I hope they've got good heating in there, too!

I love Steve, he's one of those actors I've grown up watching.

This kids parents apparently let her twenty year old boyfriend move in when she was sixteen, wtf? And now there's a "family" production company... why do I suspect it's MBB doing all the work, and the rest of the family getting the credit (and the paycheck)? Well, her memoir fifteen years from now will be an interesting read.

Gosh, this is really shocking! I remember the uproar when the book first came out, and the fatwa being issued etc... I suppose after all this time, I figured people must have moved on but apparently not.

I still think spending twenty-six dollars on a can of water is ridiculous. Buy a spray bottle from the Reject Shop, and fill it from the tap!

@cat well that was withdrawal from benzodiazapines, not necessarily all the meat.

@pollyanna all those vases above the bed are a restless sleeper's nightmare! 😆

I'd also like to ask about your poo but that feels personal. I do, however, imagine that it would be very dark and hard. 
Glad I wasn't the only one thinking that they must be constipated af, I'd imagine they have terrible gas too. Well, it's all fun and games until someone gets scurvy and their teeth fall out. 🤷🏻‍♀️

They were the most high profile couple? Really? I mean, it's probably technically true, but I'm not sure they're ahead by much...

rush August 8, 2022

Good lord, people actually ask if having four kids was a mistake? What if you replied "yes, it was a terrible mistake and I regret everything", things would get awkward real quick

The Tiger certainly sounds like Jason Donovan, and I wonder if the "I'm not wicked" line for the Zombie means it's Lucy Durack, who was in Wicked?

So, green is the new grey, then? I really like Tom and Sarah Jane's room, love to see a bit of colour and personality. 

rush August 5, 2022

Well, I don't think this will come as a surprise to anyone. Seems like they had fun together though, sometimes relationships don't need to last forever.

What a despicable creature he is. I would hope that this court case would show his followers that he's lying, but I doubt they'll believe it - this will all be "part of the conspiracy".
