  1. Ugh. All remakes seem to cast the young male lead as a pretty boy only just old enough to grow his first moustache. They are so boringly interchangeable. I have always regretted that Cary Elwes never featured in 'The Three Muskateers.' I feel the world lost the opportunity to produce a definitive version of that film.
  2. No! The movie sucked! Or the one I've seen sucked anyway. Butchered accents are a dreadful thing. You lot would have throttled me had you heard my poor attempts at Aunt Polly when I was reading 'Pollyanna' to dd, back in the day. Shameful stuff, but it can't be read in an Australian accent.
  3. At least you're done with him, eh? And yes, of course you have PTSD. It'll calm down in time.

    I mean Scarlett doesn't owe us satisfaction, and anyone who is irritated by that needs to, in the words of the immortal Man in Black, "get used to disappointment."* *Princess Bride reference.

    Scarlett doesn't want us to figure it out and we need to own our own feelings about that.
  6. Thankfully 22 isn't very old and there's a good chance he'll grow up. ❤️
  7. Could the dad be offering a party and fuss to try and slow them down? Nobody has an engagement party and gets married two months later.

    Maybe he's just doing that "I'm gonna show how big and tough and the boss of my own house I am" thing, while everyone five minutes older knows being mean to your mum is how you show how grown up you aren't yet.

    You brought him up with a strict sense of right and wrong, and to take a firm stand on his beliefs. It is no wonder he has such a strong sense of justice and rebels against accepting that justice is no more reliable than luck. Justice is important! Of course it is his business, even if the details of any specific situation aren't! How will there be any justice if no one takes a stand to enforce it? Justice in that black and white stage of thinking tends towards the punitive. It should soften in time. ❤️

    If one treats their family member as an inappropriate or insufficient person, one must expect their affection levels to recede. That's only natural.
  11. Eh. If they can set a reminder on their phone for anything else, they can set one for spousal birthday shopping.
  12. I thought your state had ethics classes as an alternative these days.
  13. I bought that for dd, probably on your recommendation, and it is one of her favourites. ❤️ She keeps reading it out on the phone to me even though I've read it too. I think everyone should read the Secret Garden. Or, even better, have it read to them by someone who can do the Yorkshire properly.
  14. I was listening to a woman talking about gender balancing recruitment for BHP. It was interesting. She said those hiring refused to change until it was put on their KPI, then suddenly their thinking was revolutionised. Funny that, huh? But this guy you're talking about is the one with the power for now, so he can do as he likes until there's someone more obliging to replace him. 😞
