@guest2 give him time, won't be long before he makes some comment about how she wasn't actually that great after all.
@laura__palmer that assumes that you are put on the list as soon as a complaint is made against you. I would have thought that such a register would only be used when someone is convicted of a crime.
Oh my God, the side saddle toilet! 😆 We used to have one of those corner vanity units, I could never find anything in it - but it held a surprisingly large amount of stuff, as I discovered when the time came to finally remove it. It was like Mary Poppins' carpet bag! Love the chair and couch, what a bargain you got there. I know there's not much you can do when you're renting, but it actually looks like it would be a really nice place with an updated kitchen/bathroom. Some nice features - picture rails, floorboards, was that a fireplace in the corner of the living room?
@mamamia-user-482898552 oh yeah, it's legal. He's still kind of sleazy for doing it, though. And his response to the assault allegations is repulsive (but not at all surprising).
For anyone who says this shows how far we've come, the big test will be the response next time a female celebs nudes are leaked. I will bet that they'll still get the whole "she shouldn't have been taking nudes in the first place" thing.
Sad thing is (well, one of the sad things) he could very well be right about the unfair contracts, but any truth on that subject is going to be completely swamped by the other erratic stuff he's doing/saying.
I have friends who took her kids on a road trip in their caravan for a few months a while back, and they had an absolute ball. And judging by my local FB buy/swap/sell pages, now is a good time if you're looking to buy, I've never seen so many caravans for sale. (Unfortunately Covid related, I'd guess, for a few of them.)
@mamamia-user-876714449 I was just about to say the same thing, such a gorgeous smile. Incredibly sad.
@snorks yeah, they're fairly similar, I'd say. I think in both cases, I still find it hard to really take in the fact that these aren't scenes from a movie, that real people died in front of us.
I generally just pluck the strays - but I find it strangely relaxing, and have to be careful and know when to stop! I mostly just fill mine in with some brow powder stuff if I'm going out in public, but I discovered my first real, proper, thick grey eyebrow hair the other day, so a box of the 1000 hour tint might be on the shopping list this week! 😆
@alison loads of guns are legal here. Guns for sporting shooters, hunters, farmers, collectors etc. You have to be licensed, and the guns have to be registered (and I'm fairly certain they have to be kept in a gun safe, separate from the ammunition), and there are limits as to what type of gun you can buy, but they're not all illegal. Not sure how this guy managed to pass the background check - but even with the complaints made against him, if he'd never been charged or convicted, I'd guess that he passed. (I don't know all the details of that part, so I'm just assuming here.)
@laura__palmer even a register is useless if they're not arrested, prosecuted and convicted.
I was nine when this happened, and I remember hearing it talked about at school, and probably saw it on the news, but the real impact didn't hit me until I was an adult. The thought of all those kids sitting there watching it happen live on tv is just horrifying.
Loved him as The Doctor, especially with Catherine Tate as the companion. Loved him in Broadchurch. Looooved him (and Michael Sheen) in Good Omens! Always comes across as a genuinely nice person too.
I had never heard of this condition until a good friend of mine went through the same thing with her baby a few years ago. Not sure if it's your thing (and you might be onto it already)but I know she found a lot of help/support online, there are FB groups etc for families with TOF babies. You've been incredibly unlucky to have to deal with all this at all, let alone in the midst of a pandemic, and there will be a few years yet of check ups and 'keeping an eye on things'. Best of luck to you and your (very very cute) little boy!
My childhood best friend's family had a microwave, back in the day when they weren't very common. I remember making chocolate cupcakes in it - they were rock hard, complete disaster! Nowadays I use it mostly for cooking veg (six or seven minutes for sliced carrots, three minutes for broccoli), super quick and easy. Also, (and I've mentioned this before) unless your microwave is really manky, you don't necessarily need lemon juice/vinegar/ dishwashing liquid. Just zap a cupful of water for about 5 minutes (or long enough to make lots of steam). The gunk will slide right off!
@mamamia-user-225957952 right, I mean why on earth would you tell your child something like that? So much pressure, especially if you have kids with very different personalities. If my parents had had my brother to be a built-in friend for me, it would have gone horribly wrong! We're all good now, but during our teenage years we clashed, a lot!
The next time anyone asks "why didn't she report him", here's your freakin' answer. Five ex partners reported him. What more do you want?
@cat the lying about it is the biggest issue I have, tbh. Have all the surgery you want, but don't tell your young fans that your huge lips are the result of clever make up.
Nice to see some original features in these houses - the cornice, ceiling roses, picture rails, fireplaces! Tbh none of these really wowed me, but I do quite like the 50s one. It will be interesting to see the houses as a whole at the end of the series.
