Celebrity role model?

When I heard her say she modeled Tauriel on Tinkerbell, I thought, uch, what an airhead. That was the least of it, apparently. I’ve heard plenty of conspiracy theories already but one I hadn’t heard is that this is happening because it’s election year. Way to go, Ms. Lilly. Thanks loads from those of us who are staying in with our vulnerable parents.

  1. Well, if anyone is taking health advice from Evangeline Lilly more fool them.

    The problem is that kids are like little Petrie dishes – they will pass the virus amongst themselves with few ill effects but then pass it to grandma ( because has anyone tried social distancing with a three year old?) who will cope less well. I think the parents who are trying to keep their kids off school and activities are the socially responsible ones, not the yummy mummies of Evangaline’s ilk.


  2. Not only are the hubs and I isolating, but my daughter has banned me from seeing my granddaughter in case she is a carrier

  3. Apparently she says she is immunocompromised, has two young kids, and lives with her father who has stage 4 leukaemia. She seems to think it’s all being made too much of. Irresponsible, much?

  4. I am guessing she doesn’t like her father

    • or she’s decided he will die anyway so this is a handy way to accelerate it. There’s been some discussion about this in the US lately — the way that people are saying “only old people get it” as if that makes it okay to spread it.

      • My daughter is a cook in a kindergarten they are only taking children of key workers but there’s a risk.


        • our state has done that too — the daycares are very limited — but it’s only a matter of time till someone brings something home from work and passes it to a child.


  5. I loathe — LOATHE — EL. Loathe. This doesn’t soften my attitude.


    • Yeah, not a good look. Supposedly she and Pace and Armitage were all great friends. Maybe she didn’t have her crazy on back then.


  6. I guess she took the conspiracy theory out of that post because all I see now is just a text about how irresponsible she is.


  7. A meme I saw some days ago comes to mind:

    ‘During this crisis comon sense should help a lot.’
    ‘We are all doomed!’

    Hello everyone. I am writing you from my home where I have been social distancing since Mar 18th – when social distancing was instituted in the small community where I am currently living. At the time of my Mar 16th post, the directives from the authorities here were that we not congregate in groups of more than 250ppl and that we wash our hands regularly, which we were doing. Two days later, those directives changed and, despite my intense trepidation over the socioeconomic and political repercussions of this course of action, PLEASE KNOW I AM DOING MY PART TO FLATTEN THE CURVE, PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND STAYING HOME WITH MY FAMILY. I want to offer my sincere and heartfelt apology for the insensitivity I showed in my previous post to the very real suffering and fear that has gripped the world through COVID19. Grandparents, parents, children, sisters and brothers are dying, the world is rallying to find a way to stop this very real threat, and my ensuing silence has sent a dismissive, arrogant and cryptic message. My direct and special apologies to those most affected by this pandemic. I never meant to hurt you. When I wrote that post 10 days ago, I thought I was infusing calm into the hysteria. I can see now that I was projecting my own fears into an already fearful and traumatic situation. I am grieved by the ongoing loss of life, and the impossible decisions medical workers around the world must make as they treat those affected. I am concerned for our communities – small businesses and families living paycheck-to-paycheck – and I am trying to follow responsible recommendations for how to help. Like many of you, I fear for the political aftermath of this pandemic, and I am praying for us all. At the same time, I am heartened by the beauty and humanity I see so many people demonstrating toward one another in this vulnerable time. When I was grappling with my own fears over social distancing, one kind, wise and gracious person said to me “do it out of love, not fear” and it helped me to realize my place in all of this. Sending love to all of you, even if you can’t return it right now. EL
