So much is made of "the curse", but a dozen or so early deaths, over 70-odd years, in a fairly large family - is that actually bad luck, or just... life?
@km oh, that sounds great! My brother and SIL had lovely food at their wedding, I still think about their chocolate wedding cake, seriously one of the best cakes I've ever eaten. My husband's brother had great canapes at theirs, there were these little leek and cheese tartlet things that were amazing. And the first time I ever tried cous cous was at a friend's wedding, something I would never have picked at a restaurant but I loved it. I think good food is definitely a wedding necessity!
What kind of fingernails does he have that they leave an injury that looks like a bite mark?
I think the 'dont wear white' thing can go either way. If a guest wears a short white sundress to a summer wedding it's not a great choice, but not the end of the world. If the Mother of the Groom turns up in a long white satin mermaid-style dress, that's a problem. (Possibly several problems, actually.)
Someone actually counted the visible window panes in Taylor Swift's picture. Not sure what's weirder, that someone did that, or that there's a possibility that she did actually leave it as a clue.
The Qatar government regrets the way these women were treated. But not, you know, the way the women who live there are treated.
@mamamia-user-482898552 I'm not saying the person was right, just that Sia is handling it badly from a pr point of view. The movie's getting lots of talk, but whether that's a good thing or not, I don't know.
I always find it quite unfair when sharks are killed after an attack. It seems unnecessary when we can just stay out of their territory.
If you're plus size, I found a nice rashie last year at Best and Less!
I read another article about this movie, with a bit more detail about the criticisms. I have to say, she might have a point about wanting people to wait and see the movie before they attack, and some of the complaints may be a little unfair, but she's coming off as extremely defensive and handling it pretty badly. The "maybe your just a bad actor" thing was kind of harsh.
On The Nanny when Lauren Lane who played CC got pregnant, they just made jokes about it. For one scene, she was even talking about watching Seinfeld, and how it was so obvious that JLD was pregnant because they kept hiding her behind these huge props - then she leaves the scene randomly carrying a huge pot plant. I love that they didn't even try to hide it!
@snorks ok, what's your solution, then?
I know how much it sucks, but I really think they're doing the right thing here. Hopefully a short, hard lockdown will be enough to stop the new infections getting out of hand. It must feel so disappointing for SA residents, considering how Covid-free they've been for a while. But lock it down now, and with a bit of luck you'll all be able to celebrate Christmas together.
@random dude to be fair, it'd be pretty funny to watch!
We got a bit of a jump start in the niblings Christmas shopping last week, and the amount of things I had to rule out was insane! One BIL has three very boisterous boys, I went through the toy section saying "nope, nope, nope". Too noisy, too messy, too complicated... their mother would kill me, that one will cause fights. Found some outdoor stuff for them in the end. Looking forward to when they're old enough for gift cards!
@laura__palmer Ben needs to go and have a look at some of the gear men used to wear in the past. High heels, powdered wigs, stockings, the works. I think Harry looks great, I thought Billy Porter looked amazing in that Christian Siriano ballgown at the Oscars, it's great to see guys having fun with clothing and expressing themselves. Poor little Ben's life must be so drab and unexciting.
Some people get upset about the weirdest things. Candace Owens and Ben Shapiro would probably be a lot happier if they lightened up a bit.
The La Roche Posay sunscreen comes in a formula for oily/combo skin too, and it's lovely. The first sunscreen I've used that doesn't feel horrible and greasy.
If it works for them, that's great. I loved her in X-Files back in the day, and she was great in the first season of American Gods, too.
Great news, well done to these ladies and all the others involved!
