Seven Things I Love (10-12-2020)

1. This Children’s Librarian – who set up the best display ever the day after the Vice Presidential debate. 2. These Celebrities teaching us American Slang – I grew up in Iowa where we have no accent and no slang! Mwah ha ha ha ha ha. So not true.

Seven Things I Love 8-17-2020

1. The Technicolor Fashion Show Scene from the original version of the movie ‘The Women’ (1939) – I suspect more people are familiar with the 2008 film version of ‘The Women’ starring Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, and Jada Pinkett-Smith. The casts of both films are entirely women, you never once seeContinue reading “Seven Things I Love 8-17-2020”

Five Things I Love (5-4-2020)

1. A friend of mine shared this Coronavirus version of Bohemian Rhapsody on my Facebook page. It’s fantastic! Right after I graduated from college I lived in the most wonderful apartment on the east side of town. 17th floor, overlooking Lake Michigan. I could only able to do this because I had an awesome roommateContinue reading “Five Things I Love (5-4-2020)”

Five Things I Love (4/27/2020)

1. Stanley Tucci making a Negroni – if you haven’t seen this video yet, you have to watch it. It’s true, I could watch Stanley Tucci reading a phone book (there’s a handful of actors that I can say this about and he’s one of them,) but this is entrancing. 2. The Film Short madeContinue reading “Five Things I Love (4/27/2020)”

India – Day Five & Six: Udaipur

Next, the City of Lakes, sometimes also called the White City (because of all the white marble palaces.)

Five Things I Love (1/6/20)

Happy New Year! I’m afraid I’m posting this one day late! 1. I will find a way to see this EPIC Alice In Wonderland exhibition at the V&A Museum in London, come hell or high water (or war or Brexit or the Queen of Tart’s army…) 2. This McSweeney’s article on a Jane Austen’s Heroine’sContinue reading “Five Things I Love (1/6/20)”
