Dog Days of February

File this under: wtf?

Legally Blond Wins. 

From Tania the liberator (of funds, I think it was?)


to champion dog breeder. Patty Hearst’s dog wins at Westminster.


You gotta love it. Or at least wonder at it.

That dog won’t hunt.

And while we’re on the topic of the fantastic, does anyone know who Ron Paul is why he’s still running? Not even the analysts two hours later ever mention him or his delegates.

P.E.T.A.-Friendly Hot Dog?

Overheard at Lionette’s counter:

“…thought you were a P.E.T.A. supporter, so you didn’t eat meat?” 

“…well, there are these really good hot dogs at Petit Robert that I’ve been into lately.”

    While I’m a Hillary Gal, Congressman Ron Paul is an interesting candidate. He’s a Constitutionalist. He’s in favor of reducing Federal control down to levels specifically stated in the Constitution and returning power to the states. He’s also “ProLife”.

    Definitely a wtf? Tania the liberator? I think I may be missing something. Did you see a beagle won Best in Show for the first time? He was so cute! Love the PETA hot dog comment, too. Guess his/her convictions are really strong… unless, of course, a tasty snack is involved. Oh, and I have wondered about Ron Paul, too. Just the other day, I saw him listed on CNN as a Republican. That’s about the most I know about him, other than he likes to recruit college students to hand out his pamphlets at the entrance to the subway station.

    There were once a group that thought the earth was flat too. So much for Mr. Paul. “Prolife” but city folk need assault weapons and the death penalty’s probably okay by him too, right?

    Good to hear from you. Too long! Write soon?

On Women and Work

Read my contributions to The Glass Hammer a new blog for executive women.


  1. Tales of the Cocktail may be over but the fun continues. Check the blogs and podcasts for all the news that fit to drink!
  2. The Maori art of facial tatooing is called moko. It is a powerful expression of tribal identity which has only recently enjoyed a resurgence as the colonial Christian prohibitions against it have lessened. Go to the Peabody Essex Museum for this rare opportunity to catch a glimpse of this amazing cultural tradition. The documentary I saw at Sundance years ago on moko, was one of the most powerful films I have ever seen.
  3. The Audubon Insectarium is a new and top-notch attraction in New Orleans. We passed by it and wondered why we'd missed it before. Turns out it's just now opening. No time this last trip, but it's on the list for the next time. Check here for info.

What's on my list?
