    The rom-com list has some good suggestions on it, but I think there are a lot of films missing. Addicted to Love. The Awful Truth. Mr. and Mrs. Smith. I don’t even think My Man Godfrey was on it. And, some of the films on the list aren’t that funny. Still, there are some films I’ve never heard of. It is pretty subjective, this list-making. And I feel like I’m forgetting a few too.

      Heaven Can Wait. What’s up Doc? Foul Play. Enough Said, tho that’s more of a satire? Hmm.

    i immediately went to that Sedaris link b/c he amuses me like noone else and i fell hard down that Grub St rabbit hole. i’m always a little embarrassed about enjoying the Strategist but i use that justification they provide – these people w/ access to the best know the best, but not sure how i justify my intense interest in knowing what semifamous people eat.

    and i dont’ know a thing about the Heard Depp trial, but it seems like one of those end of civilization signs. feeling dark this morning

    I used to work in an office in which Jane Goodall was dear friends with the boss’s longtime assistant, and she would visit whenever she was in DC. She used to step out of the elevator and announce her presence on the floor with an ear-piercing chimpanzee’s pant-hoot (the ooh ooh ah ah AH sound). She absolutely radiates goodness, much as I imagine a saint might, but she also likes really dirty jokes.

    The Lonesome Gal photo is just so cool. And I am so disgusted by the Depp/Heard trial itself, which I have mostly ignored, and even more disgusted by the online and public reaction, which seems to follow me everywhere. The rampant misogyny and the fawning over Depp is just beyond the pale. And I say this as someone who enjoyed a lot of his work starting with Cry Baby.

    I have spent the last 45 minutes rabbit holed in the search results from key words “spiderweb sweater” as worn by Lonesome Gal. My favorite (vintage) sweater is a mere 3K. Who needs to eat?

      It doesn’t look like it would be hard to make one. Although perhaps there is not a lot of overlap in the venn diagram of GOACA and Craft Gals

        I feel the above thread well represents the GOACA readership (and yeah, I too want that sweater). Sidenote: if I could get away with the mask, I would wear that as well, but especially with the sweater. Second sidenote: I have often thought the people featured on Messy Nessy would be great inspirations for movies and series.
