Tossed Salad Friday

~~ She says to me, “It’s kind of like the only one there is.” I ask, “So it’s unique?” “No,” she replies, “it’s not something you wear.” 

~~ Saudi Arabia’s got money and lets the US use its airspace, but it’s an oppressive and horrifying place. It condemns the terrorism in Paris, but publicly flogs a blogger for speaking his mind. To boot, it prosecutes his lawyer for defending his client’s rights to free speech. BeFunky_saudi-blogger.jpg I guess the POTUS and Secretary Kerry can’t speak out against such a strategic partner, can they?

~~ Sadly, the first time I knew about the existence of G.G. Michelson was after she had passed away. Reading her obituary, I wished that I’d known her — even if just to thank her for letting my generation stand on her accomplished shoulders. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/14/business/gg-michelson-macys-executive-who-broke-glass-ceilings-dies-at-89.html?_r=0

~~ The radio host advised people who have trouble sleeping at night to read an old-school type book before bed, not an e-reader, because electronics stimulate the brain. Who knew? I always thought brilliant writing was what stimulated my brain.

~~ I experienced a birthday this week. I’ve had some really, really bad birthdays, and this one was horrible. “Consider the alternative,” everyone says, and sure, that’s the best way to look at it. I received warm wishes and felt the love. But is it so wrong to envy people who spend their birthdays luxuriating in leisurely pursuits, tropical breezes, and/or less than 12-hour workdays?

~~ Continuing on the horrible theme, what could I possibly have done in a past life to be a Knicks’ fan in this one? They were so bloody awful in the UK yesterday that I swear I smelled their stench across the Atlantic Ocean!

~~ Have a wonderful weekend.
LET’S GO RANGERS!
GO, NY KNICKS, GO!
