On Two Unrelated Statements

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose Hmm, good question. I've only ever heard it used in a lighthearted context, not like when the guy is serious bad news - a keyword meaning hypnotized by great sex, without any implication of brainwashing or other creepy controlling things going on. But I'll let you know next time I need to use it. Will 6-8 weeks in advance be enough time to secure permission?

On Two Unrelated Statements

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose I always took that phrase to mean that you were sticking with a guy strictly because of the D, in spite of other things they may have working against them, e.g. "Tim thinks Seth MacFarlane is a genius, but I'm dickmatized!"

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: The Many Faces of Barbara Stanwyck

Oh I love Barbara Stanwyck so much! She was perfect in Double Indemnity, just perfect.

Once, on a long flight, I had the pleasure of sitting next to a very interesting older woman and we chatted the whole time. She had been Stanwyck's nurse at the end of her life. Said Stanwyck was a lovely woman and was wowed by her presence.

On Eat, Pray, Scrub

@Poubelle Some things you mention in your comment lead me to believe you might have grown up in West Rogers Park... ? (Or West Ridge as the no-fun types call it)

On The Edwardian Sex-Pest

@Manchester Tart Ha! I always think of him as Liam too. His black Irish fine-ness has not been replaced on Corrie since.

On [laughs]

Admittedly I have gone through phases of Doherty fascination, but am now at the point where I have both accepted the fact that he is a vile, shady human, and am constantly surprised when I see his name not followed by the words "was found dead today" or "is back in gaol."

On Martin Amis Character or "Tatler" Byline from Feb. 2013?

"Tali Lennox" would have been a good, but too obvious addition to the list! Good God!
