Curious Thoughts

The way the world is complaining about the heat.

Doesn’t it remember bitching about the cold not that long ago?  And how lucky are we to have air-conditioning and ceiling fans where many unfortunates don’t even have water to cool off in…sigh.  All I can say is, get a grip people, tis the season.

 Lady Gaga advertising for Tiffany.

When I grew up it was a rite of passage going there when all was Audrey Hepburn and that light blue box.  Diamonds and emeralds, rubies and pearls gleamed from their cases, while pretty people in navy suits smiled as you tooled by.  Lady Gaga?  My mother, in her signature choker, is rolling in her grave.

Our Tweeting President. 

I can’t say enough how irritated it makes me that he is so inappropriate.  Can you imagine Teddy texting?  Or FDR?  Okay, JFK would have had Bobby do it at least, but to casually blurt out every thought like a high schooler just throws me for a loop.

Men in droopy drawers.

I asked a kid on the train, if wearing his pants below his thighs was comfortable and he said, “No, man, that’s why I’m always pullin-em up.”

“Then why wear them then?”

“Cause they’re cool, and how else would-ja see ma Tupac boxers?”    

“Fair enough.”

Patrick, the cat, down the hall who only eats Bumble Bee Tuna (in water). 

His father, in a panic, because three stores were out, when as a last resort, knocked to see if I had a spare can. “Yes, I do,” saving the day.  What I didn’t mention, yes she shops early, was it was part of his Xmas stocking already in progress.  Better order a few more cans since it’s a long ways till December.

  1. A random mix! Always fun.

    Well, I am complaining about the heat and humidity. Seems to be bothering me more than in the past. Something to add to the cranky old woman list. What I don’t understand about the tweeting thing is…how does the President of a country have time to be reading and writing tweets? Doesn’t he have an awful lot to do and a lot on his mind leading the country?

    An entertaining blog, Susannah.
    I recall my father hrmphing when JFK took a little time away from Washington DC after his inauguration, obviously not having voted for him. I’ll have to ask him what he thinks of the current presidential texting.
    My Pookie and Patrick have BB tuna in water in common.
    And those butt shots we get are both ludicrous and disgusting. I’m always tempted to whisper to the offender that he has a little brown stain showing. I bet that would get those pants pulled up in a hurry.

  4. I’m curious what other presidents would write on Twitter, although I can’t imagine a lot of them using it (cultural differences aside). The subject of a lot of Trump’s tweets is the worst part, as you said. Not very presidential.


  5. Just the fact that Tupac boxers exist made me smile.
    I love Gaga, but not to represent Tiffany’s. I agree that it’s not a good match.
    Can not discuss the fucker in DC … just CAN NOT.
    As for the heat …. IT”S SUMMER people. I would like it if my office was not 50 below though. I literally have to go outside to get warm.

  6. We may not always agree on things, but we are both the type to think about and consider many subjects under the sun.
