Chris Pratt: from coffee to sushi?

Back in the day, there used to be a prescribed schedule where dating was concerned. Drinks or coffee first, because dinner was too much of a commitment. And if that went well, you’d move on to the next step. I can’t remember the next step, it’s been too long. Is a schedule observed anymore?

Well they just casually showed up today…and, as you can see, I turned into a total Twi-Hard. Full Story

In fact, pot is so unimportant, beyond being a plot device, it’s not even entirely clear if the Macguffin pill is for medicinal use or recreational consumption. Full Story
