Tossed Salad Friday

~~Hello, summer! There’s a lot of pressure on you not to disappoint, but I hope you’ll rise to the challenge this year.

~~A woman called me about representing her in a $410,000 home purchase. She asked about my “credentials,”  but barely 30 seconds into a recital of my real estate bona fides, she said, “No, I mean what law school did you graduate from? Was it an Ivy League school?” It wasn’t, and shockingly, she didn’t hire me.  They must be teaching headier home-buying stuff at Harvard or Yale than I could ever learn knocking about in the trenches for over 30 years.

~~ Monday’s my wedding anniversary. I am flabbergasted to write that it will be 34 years, but I am also delighted by that number. I may focus a bit too often on what I don’t have, but I know that what I do have is golden. Or, more accurately, a 34-year anniversary is not gold at all. It’s opal. (There’s a tidbit I’ll bet you can easily and wittily work into a conversation very soon!)

~~ Something minor but amusing happened to me in a parking lot last week. I tweeted about it then, and when I sat down to re-tell it here, I realized that I already said it all in less than 140 characters. @LitaTweets A woman approaches me in a parking lot and starts singing. "Do you know who sang this song?" Yes, "Patsy Cline." "Thanks, bye." #Crazy

~~ Why is it that the GOP is hell-bent on restricting the rights of women of child-bearing age, but is fine with giving carte blanche to everyone who wants to bear firearms?

~~  I saw this tee shirt the other day has_anyone_in_washington_dc_ever_read_the_cons_tshirt-rdf880a8f7c0842eca163a58a5ee9c44e_804gs_512 and I broke out into applause.

~~Before I go, please stop telling me that I shouldn’t care about the NSA (and the TSA, and a bunch of other A’s) compiling records on US citizens. Before you say, “If you’re innocent, you have nothing to fear,” I’d like you to read this: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/15/opinion/collins-the-other-side-of-the-story.html?ref=gailcollins&_r=0

Have a great weekend! I have seen the future, and it is less-than-dismal, so
LET’S GO METS!
