I palpably loathe my ex. My ex = most disappointing. My ex asbsented himself. My ex has an attendant lack of remorse. My ex = selfish bastard. My ex caused a considerable negative impact. I feel profoundly sad and my ex has a dismissive attiude. He's morally indedensible. My ex didn't give me the bleak courtesy of an explanation after his utterly unforseen and inexplicable ghosting. My ex is pestilential and capriciously malevolent. My ex = appallingly cruel. One feels bleak, sad. My ex won't reinsert himself in my life – my relationship was invaribaly doomed. My ex = unsentimental and caused anguish and frustration. My ex had savage indifference. My relationship did not self expire. My ex cruelly abandoned me. There is no closeness or concern.

Who saw 'The Hours', 'The Last Supper' (1995), 'Naked' or 'Strapless'?

Rewatched 'The Last Witch': how did Alice get out of jail? What became of Miranda's lodger? What is with the knife? What became of Alice's baby? How did the Jane possessed dog find Alice? Didn't Kate have broken bones after the accident? Why was Jane a far more powerful witch than Alice? It was okay. There were belligerent manouvres, a dreadful plight and a grim feeling. There were sourer moments and Alice was a chaotic presnece and caused awful circumstances. Maimie McCoy and her porn queen name was in this.
