    Petty bitch that I am, I *love* this! https://pagesix.com/2018/11/13/megyn-kellys-exit-has-been-great-for-today-ratings/

    Talk Shows

    We don't have a thread on talk shows (or on Benedict Cumberbatch, the horror) so I decided to start this, because it's more about how much I love the Graham Norton show than it really is about how fantastic this bit with Benedict Cumberbatch doing Beyonce's walk http://www.socialitelife.com/watch-benedict-cumerbatch-does-the-beyonce-crazy-in-love-walk-and-all-is-right-in-the-world-10-2014 Granted - I don't watch talk shows in the US (other than the Today show on the mornings when I'm working from home) Maybe it's because I never think they're nearly as funny as Graham Norton. Half the time I never even know who the stars are on the show, but I'm still laughing....

    Brad and Angelina

    What does she run? She sure as hell doesn't "run" UNHCR - she's a goodwill ambassador - but, Fakey, so..... I could totally see someone (not necessarily AJ) embezzling/inappropriately using funds from a personal production company, though.

    Top Gun sequel

    Wow - I'm totally shocked they are using an age appropriate love interest for Cruise!!!

    Baby Boom

    Looks like everyone enjoyed the holiday season - HOW MANY pregnancies have been announced this week? Are we up to 5?

    It happened like 2 days after Eugenie's wedding, and everyone was focused on Harry & Meghan's trip.....[when I saw it, I couldn't believe she went to Eugenie's wedding!]

    No, I didn't think you were arguing with me. I personally didn't want to sound like I was criticizing a woman's body or reproductive issues, and that's why I was backtracking/writing annoyingly 😉 Commenting on the way a woman looks - even when intending to be complimentary! - is like quicksand!

    To be fair, all that has been officially announced is "baby due in the Spring". The 12 weeks along has been a guess ["it has been reported" so I don't know how much to believe.] And honestly I don't really care. I do really think she looks VERY preggers in the blue dress and not so much in the other dresses, so that's all I was commenting on....

    Angles & undergarments apparently make a HUGE difference. I agree she's pretty big for 12 weeks, could be later in pregnancy or multiples, or she's just the type that has a belly pop? The FugGirls were commenting on her bodice not fitting properly around her larger breasts but I haven't really noticed that.... The dress yesterday & day before, you couldn't even tell she was pregnant....

    What are you reading?

    If you're a fan of Holmes-ish fiction, I would also recommend the Charlotte Holmes series by Sherry Thomas. 2 out so far with a third on the way: A study in Scarlet Women A Conspiracy in Belgravia The Hollow of Fear

    Did everyone but me know Kareem Abdul-Jabbar writes Sherlock Holmes novels??? The 2nd just came out and I grabbed it at the library, then realized I needed the first which I grabbed for $1.99 on my Kindle 😉 1. Mycroft Holmes 2. Mycroft and Sherlock Finished Mycroft yesterday and started the second today. I recommend!

    The sheer BALLS to tell the family at someone else's wedding. Wow.

    I thought her dress was gorgeous and that tiara was the best! But the Gatsby reading? Nope, nuh-uh. That's up there with playing "I will always love you" as your first dance song - because you CLEARLY have not listened to the words, that is NOT a wedding song!!!!

    Cooper & Shayk aren't married but do have a kid together. I never thought they'd last long, so.... https://pagesix.com/2018/10/11/are-bradley-cooper-and-irina-shayk-miserable-together/

    Reading new Deborah Harkness - Time's Convert. So far so good. Also they're making the first book into a streaming movie. Grr. I'd like things to be on TV so I can actually see things.... https://tvline.com/2018/10/08/the-dresden-files-tv-series-jim-butcher-novels/ (Also new TV remake of Dresden Files, which I'm happy about too!!)

    Lin Manuel Miranda's 'Hamilton'

    We decided to go to Chicago instead of New York (NYC last summer so want something different), so, Hamilton it is 🙂

    2018 Emmy Awards

    Over 5 million chickens have drowned so far. Can't remember how many billions in damages the last estimate I heard was.....Knock wood, not so many deaths. I think the rivers have all crested by now and should be receding, so people will really start going back/in to assess damage (and of course, potentially discover more deaths....) Also, hurricane season goes until Nov 30, so.....

    Television 2018-2019

    I agree -they earned the Emmys. Guess I really will have to watch Season 2 as there's no book 😉 But I think Liane Moriarty was somewhat involved with planning/script? Maybe not....

    Lin Manuel Miranda's 'Hamilton'

    I opted not to do season tickets in 2016 (we had them 2012-2015, or earlier maybe?) Then they did NOT sell NEW season tickets in 2017 or 2018 because of Hamilton I assume. So I made a poor decision I guess. But on the other hand, I didn't want to see the shows (in those 2+ years, we saw only 2 shows that I wanted to see enough to buy tickets for) so I guess I saved enough money to see Hamilton or Harry Potter in New York 😉 Husband has not given his opinion, though I'm slightly leaning toward Hamilton if only because it's only one night in the theater. Two nights in a row might be a little more than my husband would enjoy. Or tolerate. I can't get him that liquored up before a show because he'll need the bathroom 😉 I thought that was for the gun march/Marjorie Stoneman? Either way, I adored it too!

    2018 Emmy Awards

    We're fine - we're a little north of the Triangle, so our worst weather was Sunday/Monday - I think we had about 5" rain total so nothing compared to others. I couldn't drive to work on Monday due to flooded roads (I work in Durham, it was raining blindingly hard at 7am, after I hit the 4th flooded road, I turned around and drove back home and worked from home, just like Thurs & Friday when the campus was closed but nothing happened....Slow moving storm!) We had power flicker a couple times, and I lost internet (satellite) for an hour or so, but otherwise no problems. Glad you're ok! My in-laws primary residence is Oak Island, and of course, they can't get back there now to see the damages. I think the bridge re-opened yesterday, but I don't think there's a route from here to there open yet.... We were on vacation and flying home on Sept 12 (last Wed) so our flight was full of people on standby trying to get back before the storm hit. My in-laws told us the grocery stores near us were sold out, so we stopped at a store on the way home from airport and they had been restocked - had plenty of milk & eggs. But no bread 😉 So no Hurricane French Toast for us. Was able to do the rest of a quick "I've been gone 2 weeks and my fridge is empty" shopping though. Floyd was my first major storm in NC, 1999. And it was a very wet storm, I thought it was the worst thing I'd ever seen. This is worse.

    Television 2018-2019

    Did you stream from HBO or find it elsewhere? I was able to watch most of the episodes on Delta last year but still need to finish the last 2 episodes and they aren't free anywhere 😉 I'm cheap, what can I say. I am subscribing to Netflix now (should cancel as I can't watch from home - I downloaded a bunch of things for vacation but once I finish, I think I'll suspend my subscription) I have Amazon Prime too, and I think I can get a cheap/short HBO subscription there so maybe I can do that. But I've read the book, so I know how it ends, mostly 😉
