Eye-popping news story of the day
in which twins, adopted separately at birth, met and married years later. Raises some interesting issues about adoption/donor insemination etc, but once you get past the shock horror factor I think it might be quite interesting from a psychological perspective too. Were they drawn together in the first place because of their unknown relationship, or does this cast doubt on the idea that twins share some sort of subconscious bond even when they have not grown up together? Making inappropriately light of the situation as usual, I would like to know how similar they are physically, because how much more narcissistic can you get than marrying your own twin?
A couple of people have reminded me that they are waiting for my rant about Mistresses
. I'm afraid those people are going to be waiting a long time, because believe it or not, I enjoyed it. Yes, it was completely predictable, but it was well-acted and generally likeable and as such, strangely comforting. The fact that it desperately wants to be sexy and dangerous when in fact it's about as risqué as a cucumber sandwich just makes it all the more endearing. Sorry.
