What's a 'pingback' and do I want any?
I just caught the seaon opener.
I must say I think there is no better character on television today that Joan Harris nee Holloway.
Admit it, you squeed when we saw she finally got her own office.
I just dig how competent she is at EVERYTHING:
Whip up a quick little Christmas party on zero notice? Done.
Get me a furnished apartment (in Greenwich Village, by the way) because my cold, alien wife kicked my scumbag ass to the curb? Done.
Run a sprawling office while also reading scripts looking for clever product placements? Sure.
Throw a casually elegant dinner party, cook a roast, behave graciously and flawlessly and play the accordion while singing in French? No problem whatsoever.
Help us conduct a weekend commando raid on the office so we can swipe all the best stuff we need to start an upstart agency? I can do that, plus I already hired movers.
Conduct triage on a mortally wounded Brit due to an office-related lawn mower mishap? I am not even phased.
Plus, I dare say, the woman is built like a brick shithouse (although, I don't really understand that compliment).
edit: I just saw verbicide's post.
To which I'd say "No, she is actually very sensible and correct and actually takes pains to ensure graceful and tactful ways out of uncomfortable situations, and by deflating pomposity and most importantly, by calling attention to what are actually rude solicitations disguised as celebrations."
All of that, plus the woman has a sense of humor so fine it could be used to calibrate razor blade settings. You can cut yourself just reading her column.
Is it proper for a young lady to brush her teeth in the presence of a young man?
Only if an improper act preceded it.
