I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: “You’ve got mail.” I hear nothing, not even a sound on the streets of New York. Just the beat of my own heart. I have mail… from you.
Joe Fox: You know, sometimes I wonder…
Kathleen Kelly: What?
Joe Fox: Well… if I hadn’t been Fox Books and you hadn’t been The Shop Around the Corner, and you and I had just, well, met…
Kathleen Kelly: I know.
Joe Fox: Yeah. I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn’t have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, “Hey, how about… oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie… for as long as we both shall live?”
Kathleen Kelly: Joe…
Joe Fox: And you and I would have never been at war. And the only thing we’d fight about would be which video to rent on a Saturday night.
Kathleen Kelly: Well, who fights about that?
Joe Fox: Well, some people. Not us.
Kathleen Kelly: We would never.
Joe Fox: If only.
We need a word for the feeling you get when you think someone you really like sent you a text but then you look at your phone and see the ping was actually for a work email. What is that?
Best example to pass Bechdel test (a.k.a the test of gender bias) I’ve seen in a while on TV. Instead of talking about men or love interest or children, two female characters talk to each other about work, about how to be strong and professional, about how to take initiative and stand on their own. No crybabies. The dialogue is neither too cold or too sentimental, it’s simple and strong.
Bravo! To all writers of The Good Wife.
Right. But “You need to make yourself hard” fits everything I’ve ever heard about women needing to act like men to succeed in the workplace…
"The truth is… I’m in love."
We need Kate, and we need Leo. And we need them now.
(fyi when I watch Love Actually, I’m simultaneously sad for Daniel and Liam. Because Natasha Richardson)
Frolicking in the autumn leaves, this little lion cub is having the time of her life as she excitedly plays in her enclosure.
Tiny cub Karis proved she’s not too dissimilar to human children as she threw herself into the pile of golden leaves carefully collected by her keepers, even ending up with a pile on her head.
Staff at the Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling, Scotland, had been raking up the leaves to keep the attraction tidy, when Karis’s keeper Brian Reid realised that his little charge might enjoy playing in them and moved the pile into her enclosure.
