Now that is an incredibly elaborate way of woman-splaining away the incredibly mysoginistic way her character is written. But I thank you for this piece. On my million re-viewings of Singin in the Rain I usually just fast forward to the dance scenes (and Cyd Charisse....oh, my lovely Cyd...) and have never paid much attention to Lina. I will certainly pay more attention to her next time around.
@Titania Amen, sister! Waste of some perfectly good olive oil.
I'm so moved by her lack of bitterness-- only gratitude that she was able to find out what happened. If that had happened to me, I think that I would be very consumed by regret and anger at what had been done to me.
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. This is why I drive an old car with a tape deck.
You totally lost me when you started hating on West Side Story. Nobody hates on West Side Story!!! And if they do, I stop reading their otherwise thoughtfully-crafted blog post.
@Shayna True, owls and sequins together does sound wierd. I vote for both of them to continu on, but independently of each other.
@Two-Headed Girl YES, spirit hoods!!
@Rookie Especially those. Who knows what kind of creepy things are going to be in the pockets? Like the drugs!
I would like to co-sponsor the reinstatement of owls and sequins, which should stay with us forever.
No one has mentioned animal hats. They are cute on children and on adults on halloween as part of a larger animal costume, but there is something creepy about them on adults in otherwise normal dress.
@oxla? burning hot REVENGE... how do I get some of that? I really need to work out.
LW#3, if he's only doing it to mess with you, he will disappear after a while. Take it from me, it is HARD to sustain a gym routine. There's also the hot personal trainer/workout buddy route. Who says you can't mindgame him back?
