This is today's last #Sussex-related post because I have to watch #clubshayshay for a @BaltimoreBanner column. But this review I wrote of #Spare last year pretty much sums up something I've been struggling with, given the venom spewed at that lady. thebaltimorebanner.com/opinion/column… It seems that the ownership that some people feel over Harry and his family is a much more intense version of how we felt when Duran Duran or New Edition got girlfriends. It was supposed to be us! We were like 13 so it certainly could not have been.

Just started #HarryandMeghanNetflix and am reminded that while they were falling in love, unhinged British women were posting conspiracy theories about why they had never met and Meghan was showing up to places Harry would be the stalk him. Hard to surmount that kind of crazy. If I ever call you and tell you I’m going to be staying in a tent for ten days with a new boyfriend I am not in love. I have been kidnapped. Alert the authorities. #HarryandMeghanNetflix

I have started #TicketToParadise and already am annoyed by grown rich adults who can’t be civil to each other for their child’s sake for a day. I love that the movie knows the Americans are asshats. That idiot friend who introduces the Balinese man along with his tattoos as if he’s a museum piece and announces she’s going to sleep with him, not knowing he has a pregnant wife.

When @selenagomez showed up in the #SNL monologue with #MartinShort and @SteveMartinToGo I squealed “It’s the baby!” Because I have now reached Black auntiehood and it’s delightful. Sprinkles/Pringles the Elf is a mood. And I share it.

Starting “The Goonies”‘with the kid. Joey Pants and Robert Davi were different flavors of criminal hot. Mouth messing with the Spanish speaking maid by telling her there were drugs in the house is not cute.

Black Americans paid taxes during segregation for pools they weren't allowed to swim in, fountains they couldn't drink from and buses they had to ride in the back of. So...miss me with this "Why am I paying for school I didn't go to?" At least this is about uplift, not hate. economic-historian.com/2021/07/accoun…

Lying in bed on a snowy Saturday morning watching @joshgroban singing “She” on a @PBS special. It may be the best part of this week. Now @joshgroban is singing “Try To Remember” and I just really miss Jerry Orbach.
