Busta Shonda Rhimes

Worth revisiting as I wrap up my Shonda Rhimes book review:

“You don’t get to call me a whore. You chose Addison. I’m all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what YOU broke.”

This construct really evolved by the time it got to Olivia Pope: “I am not a toy you can play with when you’re bored or lonely or horny. If you want me, EARN me!”

Goddamn right, ladies. Testify.

(BTW, this is not a one-sided notion. I certainly hope I’ve earned the men I’ve had relationships with and have never taken them for granted. Ha ha, GRANTed… See what I did there?)

Dance it out, girl. Dance it out.

I stopped watching Grey’s a long time ago when all those new people came in and they merged with Mercy West. I don’t like new people. But I loved Christina. And no matter how lost I might be after not watching, I think I’ll tune in tonight to bid her farewell, because she’s a goddamn badass. (I am, alas, far more Meredith — drinking tequila and pining for the married boys with the gorgeous eyes.)
