@LydiaBennett I know! I can't say Frozen was my favorite Disney movie (it is based -- SO LOOSELY -- on one of my favorite fairy tales, so it was always going to be a hard sell, and I just didn't care for the music), but I loved that it had two very different female protagonists and that their relationship was central to the movie.
I have been watching a ton of Criminal Minds lately (to avoid my own graduate school work, of course) and so my first reaction to the Emily/Spencer recommendation was "Not sure Prentiss/Reid would be my sexytimes choice, but whatever floats your boat."
On The Best Time I Said Yes to Everything for a Week and Ended Up Having Bad Sex (Twice), Going Camping and Contracting Shingles
I've been working on saying yes more to everyone not related to me, and no more to the six family members I live with. So far, all it has meant is that I made a super cool glass pendant with my alumnae group, joined another committee, and got to stay home and watch all of Avatar: The Last Airbender season three this weekend instead of spending eight hours in a car with my parents. Very few shingles.
@ohpioneer I read Farmer Boy so many times as a child and now that I've seen a picture of him, I am like, "Those were good instincts." Because dang.
This is really gorgeous -- thank you for sharing it.
@Lily Rowan I made it through a couple rounds of the auditions for the college tournament, but haven't tried out as an adult.
@melis MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY
@stonefruit Yeah, as far as complaints go, that didn't really seem like one of the biggies -- but, on the other hand, the sheer volume of issues people seem to be facing is completely ridiculous given, as Onymous mentions, the $50+ billion budget.
My last name is Johnson, which isn't so bad in and of itself, though there was the time when I realized that the middle name I was considering adding to my name would give me the intials E.A.T. Johnson.
Also the time two weeks ago when I was skiing in Wyoming with my brother and his girlfriend and she skied her first blue run, and he semi-jokingly (I honestly can't tell with him) said, "We should name our son Jackson Blue." I started to say, "Actually, I don't hate that" when I paused and reconsidered that the middle name "Blue" was probably not in the cards for our family. Especially when it makes the name sound like erotic presidential fanfiction.
I recognized like 30 of these and am now embarrassed.
But all I could think for "schoolteacher" and "journalist" was Gentlemen's Agreement, which I watched on Netflix yesterday but which...not so much a comedy.
Also the wikipedia page, not wholly unfairly, has this to say about the female lead in that film: "Kathy 'works' as a pre-school teacher."
