Friday randomness

  • All the writing energy is going into the endless project, except that I'm now excited about it. 
  • I sent two pieces of it this week so now someone besides me will read it. 
  • Then it was time to do all the errands: call Kabletown about lowering the cable bill, which will happen, and pick up dry cleaning, and get car serviced, and get groceries so that there is more than kale and cheese in the house.  Pro tip: No one can live solely on Cheesy Kale Delight or Kaley Cheese Delight or any permutation thereof.  It's been tried. 
  • I am getting increasingly annoyed with news sites reporting celebrity gossip as though it is as important as the tragic mass shootings we have seen lately. Double that for calling the perpetrators "shooters." "Shooters" is for video games. These people are murderers.

Misogynistic 2016 election coverage has also started, "Hillary snaps at NPR reporter."

nicoleandmaggie--So it begins. I'll bet that "snaps" would be "reasons gently" if they were reporting John Boehner or Eric Holder.

more likely, "corrects NPR reporter Terry Gross"
