#SlayCamp felt like being in a class where everyone had done the reading. I talked endlessly w/ women who listened to the same podcasts, read the same articles, highlighted the same books, and watched the same interviews. I felt safe, smart & seen. Thanks @rgay & @tressiemcphd

I have a smoke detector that won’t stop beeping. Have changed batteries. Bought new batteries. Held the test button for 30 seconds. Still beeping.
The bar and JLo and Ben Affleck’s hotel is excellent. They make beautiful cocktails. I miss Paris.

Every time I see Batman sniveling about searching for inner peace, I think, what a billionaire baby. Honestly, get it together Bruce.

This couple on Mexico Life has 9 children…simply because they loved having kids.
Watching two human adults kick back with white wine, ankles crossed, watching a movie on their iPad in an airport lounge without headphones. People have really lost sense of how to behave in public.

It's mind-blowing that they spent $30 million an episode on Season 4 and no small amount on the first three seasons and half of each episode you simply cannot see. Most shows are doing this. I don't understand it. Live in the light, beloveds.
