Today, I have so many errands to run, I can’t even. So, I’ll keep this intro short. All in a day’s work, I suppose. See you on Friday. (A reminder: for the month of August, I will be posting 2-3 entries a week. Consider it my summer hours.)

Today, Maxine Waters turns 79. Happy birthday and thank you! “I don’t care how big you are, I don’t care how high you are, if you come for me, I’m coming for you.” Words to live by.

Marlo Thomas: “Athletes have a whole other way of thinking. They have a goal, they have their asses kicked, they get disappointed, but they learn from every game. After a game you’ll hear them analyze what went wrong and what went right. It’s so completely personal to them. Just like my work is personal to me. I always feel I learn something from their challenges that help me with mine.”

Claire Messud: “I  had a sense that I’d better not learn to cook, which I never did. And I had a sense that you have to be ruthless in some way.”

I wear bikinis, just like Alexandra Shulman does.

Don’t mess with this 89 year old woman.

Airlines and their dress codes. Sigh.

An ode to Orphan Black.

Also, an ode to the strawberry.

Wine chatter.

Solar eclipse tips.

Genius Wedding Present song.

And now have a laugh with Marsha Warfield.
