Wow! This brought back so many memories of year-nine English and having to perform the Harfleur speech in front of the class. I can still recite it! Anyway. I never realised how YOUNG Kenneth Branagh was then, how '90s his haircut was or how oddly non-existent his lips were.
@The Kendragon My brain always does the same thing whenever I read anything about Sean Bean...
@SarahDances Stila's Convertible mascara did the tubing thing as well and I really love it - it was also double ended so there was a thick wand and a thin wand at the other end for doing the inner corners of your eyes. But it seems to have been discontinued.
Apart from everything else, it's behemoth. Not bohemoth! Argh
It's also featured on one of the recent KUT 90.5 podcasts, along with my *other* current obsession, this song (sorry if you're all already way past this):
Also - SHE'S A WOMAN?? Mind blown!
@logan Just want to say the same thing. This is an issue I've been mildly obsessed with for a while now and reading Nicole's piece was like opening a window and letting the fresh air into a stale room.
How come it seems like no one else in the history of conversation has ever said, "It's ok if you don't have a baby"?
Why ... everything. But if I could narrow it down, I'd want to ask why some of those dolls, sorry, kids, don't look like proper ones (are they homemade?). I'm also wondering why I find it much stranger for a man to be so into CPKs than for a woman. What a gender-discussion minefield.
@sox Aw, I like your take on V-Day. I think part of the trouble is that in Australia we don't really know how to "do" Valentines. Same with Halloween, although that's more of a thing these days than it used to be.
Valentine's Day is just so awful. It's pretty much a zero-sum game. Either:
• You are in a couple, get something special and feel slightly embarrassed and juvenile
• You are in a couple, get something half-arsed and feel cheated and resentful
• You are single, get nothing and feel like a deprived child
The only people it *might* work out ok for are people who've just met someone. Even then, it's touch and go. Ugh!
@wee_ramekin The older, svengali-like partner who always leaves you feeling like shit. It's so obvious!
