March 4, 2014

Woke up sleepy this morning. It's now 8am and I'm still sleepy.

Happy to know that the "Cherry Bomb" necklace is going to a good home.

Today seemed to be the day I attracted chatty people. First thing in the morning on the bus, on the way home on the bus, at the coffee shop this morning, people just settled in next to me and started talking. In truth, I found it annoying and intrusive. I was trying to live my own life: nap on my way into work, read on my way home. But ultimately I realized that these were human beings, and human interaction is frequently more important than reading (I'm not entirely convinced about napping).

Our new sales consultant came in today to meet with the boss. He and I chatted a bit and he told  me about his new company. He told me the name, what it means, and what the company does. He asked for help with logos, and I told him that I'm more of a content person, with no visual artistic talent. But I had immediately had a mental image, which I tried to describe. After he met with the boss, I had three concept sketches for a logo that I gave to him. Crude, but enough that a graphic artist would know what I was going for.

Today I watched Thelma and Louise to get back on track for the 101 Things in 1001 Days.

I thought it was entertaining, but I didn't find it uplifting or empowering. How this ended up on the the AFI's "100 Years, 100 Cheers," I have no idea.


  1. I think T&L was very much a product of its time. Like watching The Graduate now. The Graduate was/is funny and biting but seen now it's hard to believe it was a cultural phenomenon, but it was because it tapped into a generation's ambivalence. Likewise, T&L was one of the first movies written for women by a woman and show women as friends and tapped into a lot of anger.

    And thank you! Thank you!

    1. Hope you enjoy, Gal! I think you're right that T&L would have resonated much more if I'd watched it 20 years ago.
