Progress

I’m doing some spring cleaning, and came across a secret stash of clothes I put away a couple of years ago because I outgrew them (and not in that good “Look how big you’re getting!” way a two-year-old does).

They all fit me now. They’re even a little loose. So I’m really motivated to keep going, because I love clothes and it’s been a while since I got to pick things out by my aesthetic, and not by fit.

And I have another secret stash waiting for me. Woo hoo!

It’s allegedly Karl Rove training wingnuts to be attack dogs on liberal blogs. Not sure if it’s true, but it’s a good description of the dynamic. The thing is, any liberal blogger or reader who’s been around just doesn’t talk to trolls, so it’s unlikely to work.

I don’t care what they think. I rarely respond to posts anyway, since we all have Mr. Google at our disposal and I figure if someone really wanted to know, they’d ask him.

Earth Day

Discussing the coming climate crisis with Heidi Cullen.

Remind me again

You got my attention
Go ahead, speak
What was it you wanted
When you were kissin’ my cheek?

From Oh Mercy! (1989), produced by Daniel Lanoir, who arguably helped pull Bob Dylan out of a long artistic slump. In his Chronicles, Volume One, Dylan wrote of his difficulties and pleasant surprises in making the album, and praised Lanoir for the distinctively spooky sound of “What Was It You Wanted…” More here.
