Have you watched that documentary on Netflix about them? I’m loving the Crown about their story. I think the documentary is called the Queen at 90. Sent from my iPhone
Oh I love this. My mom’s sister was very girly and I idolized her. My mom was very practical and did not get me. I’m glad your niece has an aunt like you. Sent from my iPhone
Love those answers. I agree about the deep conversations. Love people who can go deep. I met David Crowder before. He was one I wanted to meet. I don’t want to meet Adam Ant (I’ve had the opportunity) because I don’t want to burst my bubble about my lifetime crush. 😂 Sent from my iPhone
Most days it is. I’m very grateful people confide in me. I take that trust seriously. Sent from my iPhone
LOL could be a great title. I just have this thing where people tell me their stories. Diann Hunt had it too. Go figure. Sent from my iPhone
Love these. And Diann Hunt was even better then you’d imagine. I never met a kinder, funnier person. Sent from my iPhone
Colin Firth is making financing available to Rupert Everett in his new film on Oscar Wilde. Okay, here's one author who was never boring. He brought us a glimpse into narcissistic personality disorder before it was probably called that. (The... Continue reading

My parents were having this discussion after reading a book. I've thought long and hard about my list. Most of them are entertainers because what would I really ask a scientist? Although I would like to meet Galileo and find... Continue reading

This morning in Starbucks. How many of my posts actually start that way? It's probably pretty terrifying to think about. Anyhoo, I'm wearing a sequined top today. Because it's Sunday. This little girl danced over to me, and she is... Continue reading

If you've been following this blog for any amount of time, you'll know that Thomas Ravenel from "Southern Charm" triggers me. And not in a good way. I have seen his kind of narcissism up close and I watched with... Continue reading
It's really a strange movie that way. It's hard to understand it.
I was so jealous of that wardrobe. But it helped that they are both so gorgeous. Sent from my iPhone

I saw "A Simple Favor" this weekend. Mostly because Paul Feig is in on it, and he's a genius in my book, so I had to see the film. We went to the fancy theater at Santana Row. On a... Continue reading
Hahaha what about Shades of Grey? 😂 I watched a PBS special on Margaret Mitchell last night. She was such a cool chick. Imagine creating Scarlett and Rhett. And the to be coupled with angsty teen vampires. Sent from my iPhone
I was fired up. : ) I could have provided more facts, but I was toning it down.
Oh my goodness, that was so funny! But sad at the same time. LOL . Does the Pope count? ; 0
I'm so sad that kids are not only NOT reading, but they're not even talking to each other with these stupid phones in their hand. I am sounding like an old curmudgeon, but it pains me. Did you see all the classics at Costco yesterday?

Has anyone watched, "The Great American Read" on PBS? They have gathered the top 100 books and they're asking America to vote on its favorite. Hearing people talk about their favorite books and what they mean to them sets my... Continue reading

Misogyny in the church is shown in subtle ways -- and sometimes, not so subtle ways. Regardless, it is insidious. God loves men and women equally. One sex is not BETTER than the other. We are different to accomplish God's... Continue reading
You should go into the ER. That is not something to mess with. You could be having an allergic reaction. Better safe than sorry. ❤️ Sent from my iPhone
I’m so sorry for your son, but I’m glad you know you’re not alone. Some of us are just more sensitive than others! Sent from my iPhone
I’ve seen it too. I don’t think you even see it in the other people around them sometimes. I think this woman did a good job of trying to build him up and show him love on Facebook, etc. he’s straight up wired wrong. Who could look at their children while choking the life out of them. I once had a crusty Marine pastor who lived in Africa. He told young pastors that your primary goal is to keep your family together. Because if you can’t do that, your witness is gone to the Africans they served. Sent from my iPhone

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6069607/Was-Colorado-killer-husband-jealous-pregnant-wifes-new-career.html A man kills his precious daughters, his unborn baby and his wife. And what does this news article ask? Was he bitter over his wife's newfound success? Um, do we care? The man is a monster. This feeds into... Continue reading
I’m so sorry to hear that. For me with a weakened immune system, it lasted about five or six days. Sent from my iPhone
It’s hard when you are a parent she want to volunteer. But I won’t take it again either. Some of us are more sensitive than others. Sent from my iPhone
