"I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience."

Meryl Streep (via farre)
What took her so long!?
It came up quicker than usual, but last week I received another check from Google Adsense thanks in no small part to all of the Supernatural fans who checked out my TCA interviews over the last month. So naturally, I took my $186.20 and went shopping! This time of year, my favorite thing to do growing up was back to school shop anyway. As a kid I always got new sneakers, new markers/colored pencils, and a new lunchbox. As I got older, it became more about boots and leather jackets and button downs. These days, it’s sweaters for my cold office and button downs. And also a dress for an event I’m producing in September and some jewelry. And thanks to Express’ 40% Labor Day weekend sale, I came in well under budget at $174.71!

#what's in the mail today
What’s in the mail today, Danielle?
Maybe it’s Valentine’s Day in August or maybe networks just really want me to have a good holiday weekend because today’s swag delivery was a bottle of the limited edition J.R. Bourbon from Dallas (thanks, Warner Horizon and TNT!) and a few chocolates for MTV’s Are You The One? It is worth noting that both items were sent on their own— without a screener for the series— which kind of bummed me out because I NEED to know what happens on Dallas next. But either way, when I finally see it, I’ll be able to eat my feelings through it.
#jimmy kimmel live
This September will mark the 20th anniversary of when Friends debuted. How’s that for “I feel so old!”???
Well, there are sure to be a lot of listicles of “Where Are They Now?” and “Top X Things You Didn’t Know/Top X Guest Stars You Forgot Were On.” But anyone can do that type of coverage, so Jimmy Kimmel kicked things off with a mini-reunion on his show last night.
From the minute he said he used to write Friends fan fiction, already knowing the reunion consisted of the women, I immediately pictured something out of Joey’s script pages. And he kind of did that, but this turned out pretty good anyway ;)
#the normal heart
If you blinked, you might have missed Taylor Kitsch at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmys (I don’t think he walked the red carpet). But he is relevant to my interests so of course I caught it.
Kitsch joined his The Normal Heart co-stars and producers on stage to accept their win for Outstanding Movie.
There’s a public pool that allows dogs a free swim just before they close down for the season.
I want to go to there.
