Looks like a lady

On rare occasions, I have had the pleasure of having a professional artist do my makeup.

Each asked my preferences before they began– colors, eyes, lips, etc. For example, I often said I liked a ‘strong eye.’

Thank goodness they never interpreted that to mean this —

New Yorkers –

All over the city, Horse Heroes are taking to the streets to urge City Council Members to show compassion for our city’s abused carriage horses.

I got a little color

Another day in the bright sunshine at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center has left me happy, hot and headed for the couch where I intend to be a slug all night.

This is a slug.

Who knew being lazy could look so good?

Catty, or not

Unless you have been avoiding social media, you have no doubt heard the shocking revelation from Sanrio that Hello Kitty is, in fact not a kitty:

“Hello Kitty is not a cat. She’s a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She’s never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it’s called Charmmy Kitty.”

hello kittyNow, I could point out the obvious flaws in their argument — six of them to be precise — those very un-little-girl-like whiskers that stick out of Hello Kitty’s face.

How many little girl characters sport whiskers?  If they have a hormonal imbalance, maybe…but that’s not the stuff of your typical cutesy cartoon world.

But instead, let’s focus on the bigger question –

WHY?

Why pick now to drop this bomb?  It has been 40 years since this very pink, very catty property was introduced — why pick now to draw this line in the litter box?

If this distinction mattered that much to Sanrio and to its legion of crazy cat lasses and ladies, they should have made it abundantly clear four decades ago.

Meow.

HAPPY NATIONAL DOG DAY!

In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog.

 

 

Friendly skies

Rory and I flew to Boston today.

Our flight was fairly uneventful, but then again, Rory didn’t spend any time in the cockpit.

Southern comfort

You don’t know or appreciate the mother’s milk that is iced or hot tea…

…but that ain’t none of my business.

I know I am a little late to this meme, but I had to take a shot.
