At the beginning it sounded complicated. But when the doctor had said she wasn't capable of consent, because hospital staff thought dude needed to be told explicitly, and then he went right in and got at her behind the bed curtain in the room with another patient, and when his daughter was intervening with the hospital trying to keep him from having access, it seemed simpler. I was really appalled by this.
@Claudia Sherman@facebook Is no one going to take care of that?
The red bow thing in the invisible setting. That is so god damned beautiful.
Wait. She was not an actual debutante? Was that ironic?
Nicole Simpson was her best friend?
Also, re Hollywood Homely, it fits so nicely with the idea that if you're not trying to be beautiful, no one will think you are. Even if the raw material is there, you have to enhance it with all sorts of crap. Put in some effort.
When Audrey and Cary Grant were making Charade (great movie, great book) he was said to have been very uncomfortable with their age difference, and asked for rewrites so that young Audrey was chasing after him and he was (kind of) fighting her off saying she was too young for him. Guess he saw Funny Face.
Kay Thompson being DV, the Think Pink number, so great.
Team Decca! Read her letters.
Or, you just changed your mind.
@CaitlinRenee Mary Roach has a really great bit in Spook about how people with actual grants to study these things objectively test psychics, and the first thing is, the readings have to be blind, where the reader can't see any reaction from the subject, and you have to offer the test subjects transcripts of multiple readings, some of which are not theirs. Then the readers pick the ones that seem on the mark to them, and that's how you grade them. And, they fail. When they can't adjust their reading according to the reader's reaction many psychics refuse to participate. The ones who will don't do any better than random selections.
