  2. Courtesy

    For US citizens, the protocol in a receiving line to meet a personage such as the Queen of England is to wait for her to extend her hand, and then you may extend yours. (You'll most likely be given instructions by her staff on matters such as the "don't touch" rule). US citizens should not bow or curtsy to this or any monarch. A good etiquette source book (that is US specific) is Emily Post's Etiquette. It is now in its 18th edition. Since I'm relying on an old 15th edition, I should update.
  3. US Elections 16- The Scowl & The Pussy-Crat.

    The Kate McKinnon impression of her on SNL truly blurs the line between reality and fiction. Yep. Sloggy immediately caught the gaffe (racist patronizing).
  4. The Workplace as Highschool; or We Never Grow Up

    MZ, at the last firm where I was partner, I always attended the obligatory meeting to vote on which of our summer law clerks should be extended permanent offers. One year, the recruiting partner at the firm, who was also an employment lawyer(!), objected vehemently to extending an offer to a summer clerk on the basis that said clerk had taken off her bra at a bar outing with a number of male lawyers from our office. In my opinion, the behavior of our lawyers, not that of the clerk, was questionable and perhaps violative of several statutes, titles, and regulations. The only pertinent factors were that the clerk did excellent work and got along well with most everyone. Ultimately, though, the recruiting partner raised so much hell that the offer was not extended by our firm. In an unlike-high-school-but-like-a-high-school-movie turn of events, the recruiting partner's husband was also a lawyer at another large firm in town, where, in fact, he was the recruiting partner as well. The clerk in question had split her summer and clerked at that firm the second half of the summer. The recruiting partner's husband did not share the qualms of his wife regarding this clerk, and she was offered a position at that firm. As to your specific situation, I'd rather work with the person curious about bugs than the rat's ass who would repeat puerile ponderings that could have a direct impact on another person's employment or lack thereof.
  5. economics & ethics of praise

    Exactly. If a person says, for example, "blue is a good color on you," the correct response is "thank you," not "it is."
  6. US Elections - From Russia with Love

    And as @Kalbearnoted earlier, those Trump-nominated justices will ensure, among other horrors, that reproductive freedom for women will become a relic of the past.
  7. US Elections - From Russia with Love

    Yes, with the Senate in its current makeup, Trump will have an easy process shepherding through his nominees. His chosen ones will not suffer the fate of Merrick Garland.
  8. US Elections - From Russia with Love

    It is somewhat likely/likely that 2-3 justices of SCOTUS will die/retire for health reasons and therefore, it is somewhat likely/likely that Trump, through the nomination process, could affect legal decisions long after his 4-8 year reign of terror.
  9. What are you listening to? Vol. XXII

    The Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner? Or any of the Stila liners?
  12. Makeup V: Inspired by a Diva

    Like others on this thread, I have tried so many different mascaras, but I have yet to find anything comparable to Lancome Definicils. I have found the waterproof version of this mascara to be unnecessary. Definicils does not smudge, and it provides length and volume to the lashes. The item that I am always searching for is an eyeliner for my waterline that is a color other than dark brown or black and that does not cause an immediate allergic reaction. The truly perfect color for me is Too Faced Perfect Peacock. Unfortunately, the moment I apply it my eyes start producing an overload of mucus.
  13. I am adoring this right now, but please be advised the group has a somewhat country sound.
  14. Still adoring this:.
  15. I'm sorry. Is there a way to set up a rule on your computer that if the recipient is his address, then the email will be deleted, automatically saved as draft only, or something else? I have used the rules function only to move email to archive if it is from a certain sender. I don't know if you can set up such a rule for emails you send, but it may be worth investigating.
