okay. let’s see. it’s about a family - the parents, two sons, and the daughter. so, not chronologically: the parents go on a cruise, the mother is depressed, she starts taking pills called Aslan. oh, and the father throws himself off the cruise ship. the daughter is a cook in a fancy new restaurant, co-run with her boyfriend maybe? i think one of the sons is a fuck-up… college professor? he’s the first character we really get to know, after a bit with the parents. maybe got fired for fucking a student? i think he does some drugs. and the other son… i want to say gary? um, probably more successful, richer, wife and young kids? but everyone’s lives are going to shit.
I have found the best cookie.
It is the CocoNut from Pret a Manger. There are nuts, they say, but it’s really coconut and melty chocolate. (Pret keeps their cookies warm.)
I don’t have a picture because I ate the cookie. I know that’s bad internet, but I don’t care.
But there. Now you know. The best cookie. Thanks.
It is true that Betty is not the most terrific person. She is not an angel or a saint. But when people say on the one hand that Betty is despicable and on the other “I like how Pete is coming into his own,” it is extremely hard to refrain from saying “at least Betty never raped anybody,” but one must, because there is nothing to be gained from having that conversation with a person who thinks that Pete is, like, totally super.
Gurl, Pete may get more aggressive, more verbal with his smackdowns directed at his male co workers, which I enjoy, mostly because in that episode? Roger deserved it.
But, I will never, EVER like Pete because he is a rapist and an absolute jerk, and he’s never shown a shred of care for anyone besides his weasly, slimy, narrow-minded self.
I’m currently a couple of episodes from the end of season 1 [fat Peggy makes me feel weird!] and in the VERY FIRST EPISODE, or at least the VERY FIRST TIME WE MET PETE CAMPBELL, I turned to Tanner, who’s seen the first few seasons, and I said, “Does Pete Campbell rape someone?” Tanner: “I’m not going to tell you.” Me: “He does! I bet he does! I can tell! He’s gonna rape someone!” And then Tanner was like, “No! God! Shut up, woman! Fine! No, he doesn’t!”
This addiction to being right is going to cost me some day.
An African guy who’s visiting the office today just came up to my desk and I had to make him repeat his question three times before I got that he was asking where he could get water. He started spelling it, complete with tracing the letters in the air. Don’t I feel awesome and sensitive and stuff.
To be fair, I’m pretty sure he was saying lo water, which threw me.
But still, that’s no excuse. Suck less, Green. Suck less.
