@Gidi (@twitter) The phrase "So dreamy" was no longer in vogue even before she was born, but she embodies it.
I'm loving her positive radiance, despite enduring rainy Paris.

Proving that you can't be too old to be #AcceptedToNevermore Academy as long as you're weird enough. I'll be one year behind @wednesdayaddams, hope she will be kind to us new students.

Ah the smell of false hope on a #Wednesday...

Wednesday, the highly anticipated #JennaOrtega series about Wednesday Addams at Nevermore Academy, will premiere 23 November at #Netflix.

It is that late so other shows can cling on to the hope of being best series of the year, only for #Wednesday to shatter their dreams.

Hmm, so the fine print for the free embedded viewer of Getty Images says that they can show advertisements through that viewer on your site, without your knowledge. I think we're just going to have to take the risk, since despite being too expensive you can't even legally buy the images if you wanted to, since the same fine print says you can only buy a license to use their images if you're a company.

Jenna Ortega is at a fashion show in Paris (Maison Valentino) and I've seen her look on Instagram on the fan accounts. It's an amazing look. I'm going to have to visit the stock photo sites again this evening...

These photos are by fashion photographer Genevieve Leah ( and make up artist Naoko Scintu (

I mean the most breathtaking woman arrives at Paris Fashion Week and she's not even one of the models:

It's weird to me how, when seeing photos of the fashion events, a lot of people involved in fashion seem to try to project an image of being miserable. Don't know why this is, it's somehow fashionable and a way to seem relevant. So seeing Jenna's attitude, of being happy to be there and to be able to interact with fans, is like a breath of fresh air.

"The kids learn online at Ukrainian schools, using Russian internet and Western VPNs," Boris says. "It's quite ironic."

Finally for #JennaBirthweekRewatch (I'm doing a week running from Sunday to Saturday apparently) of course Scream. Jenna performs her scenes of being the victim with such accuracy, that it becomes hard to watch: you actually see a girl in danger.

10 items per month, for one year: €229. 25 items per month, for one year: €599. I've re-calculated this a couple of times, but the bigger subscription is more expensive even per item, right?

Anyway, that's all moot since the type of things I need/want are actually around €80 per item; or €400 for the good ones.

The English terms from cooking eggs seem weird to me. "Sunny side up" doesn't at all sound like my way of doing it, still it is. "Over easy" seems more my style, but is too hard for me. Though "Scrambled" is both what I occasionally do and befitting my personality.

Woman talking about the bad stuff men they are dating say and do is triggering for me, since logically it would mean I am worse. Which I guess I am.

May the Russian army "regroup" all the way back to Russia.

Btw, season 3 of #HisDarkMaterials will be out in December if I remember correctly.

It was new that the coffee corner in the bookshop was completely utterly full. Usually it's quite empty and safe to buy a cappuccino and some cake, then find a seat. So now I'm home for coffee. (But no cake)

Public transport is like when you park your car and they charge you for entering and exiting the parking. And then you still have to take another bus from the parking place to where you need to be.

I'm still doing it, for environmental reasons, but they could make it more available financially and practically.

It has been a few months ago, but the database process got killed again today due to out-of-memory. If it's going to be another few months before it happens again, I think it's ok. (I predict the next event is going to be out-of-disk-space instead...)

It was nice of a fellow inhabitant of my apartment building to give me a package he had found that had my address on it. It was apparently put in the elevator by 'non-delivery service' DPD. I never take the elevator, how should I have known?

It had already been opened by other people and is likely no longer complete. Since it was not a package I was expecting or ordered (a surprise), I don't know whether any contents are missing.

So in addition to not using DHL as I mentioned earlier, we shouldn't be using DPD either.

Buffering... this post will load shortly.

Today in the #JennaBirthweekRewatch I finished watching The Babysitter: Killer Queen (it was late yesterday) and I'm now doing another episode of You season 2. #JennaOrtega steals that show.

Yesterday I also rewatched an episode of Richie Rich. She's so funny in it! And so tiny, this show was when she was very young...

For today's #JennaBirthweekRewatch I'm going to be a heretic and watch what I consider #JennaOrtega's best horror film: The Babysitter: Killer Queen. Not only is she one of the leads, the film also remains character-based whilst running from killers.

Wishing #JennaOrtega much happiness for her 20th birthday as she gives us fans much happiness seeing her talent in her many projects.
A stack of discs in front of a streaming search screen, all Jenna's projects.

Today in the #JennaBirthweekRewatch : The Fallout on HBO Max. This is still the best film where Jenna as the lead shows how great a character actress she is. #JennaOrtega should be the lead in all films.
That is a seriously good film, really my kind of film, the best. I wish all films were like that, good story, good characters, talented performance, with a heart, meaning. This is why I follow Jenna, because this is what she can do.
Of course for #JennaBirthweekRewatch I'll watch an episode of You season 2 as well. #JennaOrtega 's performance as Ellie was such a masterclass, grounded it and made it the best season.

This Tuesday #JennaOrtega has her 20th birthday and I'll be celebrating by (re)watching her films all week. To start #JennaBirthweekRewatch, the 4k collector's edition of X. #XMovie

Watched Hermione Corfield and Eve Myles in the first season of We Hunt Together, since the second season has its run on tv here. Quite interesting! Hermione's character Freddy Lane is something special.

Content warning: We Hunt Together season one

One of the security risks in the future for enterprises will I think be when adults follow the kids in being on BeReal, or the current kids become adults, and the BeReal forced selfies are taken in the workplace. Paranoid me thinks this may even be their business case.

Rice with raisins and some sugar is also one of these quick things to make if it's too late to make full dinner, or even to heat up the oven for pizza. It's 23:30 and I forgot to eat earlier.

It should be illegal for streaming services that no one can watch to acquire the rights to a film. What even is 'Shudder'.

Anyway, Morgan Saylor's new film Spoonful of Sugar will be on 'Shudder' in 2023 for those that can access it. Hopefully it will also be elsewhere.

You season four, with Amy-leigh Hickman, has a teaser trailer out now. Part one will be released 10 February, part two 10 March.

Average of 1s response time to HEAD requests. Hmm, doesn't sound good. Should do something about that I guess.
You get responses from HEAD requests? So lucky!
