You are a good writer with a fantastic bullshit detector.
Everyone should be too busy working for this!
You are such an inspiration, Jolie! And I am looking forward to having your book, waiting on a shelf for the next time I spill something disgusting and need to figure out what kind of solvent will break it up.
I had a similar reaction -- there's something rather comically whiny about someone so young, with so many things yet to experience, wondering why her life partner hasn't shown up.
And I'm so looking forward to reading Sara Eckel's book. Even though I'm long past the point of buying into them, the barrage of "what are you doing wrong, single lady?" messages gets tiring. Hooray for moral support!
Years of training, struggle, and hard work -- rewarded with the costume of a hallway extra on SAVED BY THE BELL.
It's just undignified.
Martha's dogs have their own garden shed. It's where they hide when they think she might bite them in the face.
Has anyone ever seen them together? See?!
I've already alerted four people to its existence, and the day is young. It might replace the gif of Peggy Olsen banging her head on her desk as The Thing I Look At When I Want To Walk Out of Work And Never Come Back.
Leaving aside the most rage-inducing part of this -- keeping this poor woman's body alive against her wishes and her family's -- will this hospital and the Jackass State of Texas be paying for this experiment in gestation, or will their final horrifying insult be billing this grieving family for anything not covered by insurance?
A good list, but as someone who works at a foundation, I must suggest a modification: Review the materials on the foundation's website, including grant reports for previous funding cycles, application materials if they provide them, and links to any press they provide. Do not cold-call a foundation to find out if your organization is a fit; chances are you will be able to answer that for yourself from this basic research. Call when you have specific questions about the application process. No one likes having his or her time wasted by a development person who isn't doing much more than pulling a phone number off Guidestar or the Foundation Center website.
That movie is on television so often, I can chant whole scenes of it despite having only watched it all the way through from beginning to end once. It's the Earworm of Cinema.
