We’re getting there.

I’m not sure I’m really CHEERING for her as much as I used to — it’s been too long since Mean Girls for me to sustain that level of investment in her as an actor, and I don’t know where she’s going to get the chance for another clear-eyed, funny performance like that one — but as a member of the human race, and someone who unsecretly also loves her in Freaky Friday, I’m happy that she looks clean and titian-haired and healthy and that her mini-dress is cute and flattering, and that she has not fallen over and broken an ankle in her platform-stiletto-bootie-socks. I mean, this has got to be the nicest and least-blurry she’s looked in a while, right? It’s good. Maybe I AM cheering for her, or at least rooting gently in place of the football teams I love that are no longer doing anything. She should get back to me after hockey season ends, when I am also more emotionally available.
