I am working, and that's excellent. At the salon, musically, we settled on a 90's station that all of us seem to like...for now. I was lovin' the 70's station but apparently, someone who will remain nameless (Kathy) announced she was going to hurt someone if the station was not changed. Fine. Be that way. Throughout the past few days, Carol and I have been working on our lip dubbing techniques and might just have a duet worked out by the end of the month.
I read a lot of powerful words from others this week. This is also known as how to waste away a couple of hours on the Internet.
Like some of my favorite bloggers do, I am going to share a few of them with you.
Total self promotion:
For the next two Tuesdays, facials with Michelle will be HALF PRICE at the salon. Call to schedule a day of wonderfulness just for you. Complimentary blow dry after your facial. 914-862-4642
At the end of her life, Charlotte Kitley wrote a final blog piece.
"Embrace your loved one and if they cannot embrace you back, find someone who will. Everyone deserves to love and be loved in return. Don't settle for less."
I encourage you to read the entire post, "And so there must come an end."
After the tears, there is always laughter. Jimmy Fallon, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani had me giggling out loud with their lip sync battle. (And gave Carol and I some ideas!)
The first is titled, For when you lose it (because you'll lose it)
I swore I was going to be one of those moms who didn't tell her kids to shut up, who wouldn't curse, who wouldn't spank, who would be the polar opposite of who I am...
I said shut up. I told someone to shut the fuck up in December of 2001 the morning of the PTA Holiday Dinner and was relieved to know I was in excellent company - I hadn't cursed AT a kid before that morning. In her essay, Motherhood: The Big Fat Fuck You, Lisa Morguess shares a day in her life.
I read an outstanding article about The Church of U2.
"Most people think of U2 as a wildly popular rock band. Actually, they’re a wildly popular, semi-secretly Christian rock band."
Last (not really, I could go on...) I watched the new TV show, The Red Band Society. Tissue worthy for it's sass and sensitivity. It is a captivating cast including Octavia Spencer and Dave Annable (Brothers & Sisters was his last gig that I watched him in). I watched it on Hulu but you can also catch it on FOX.
I know you're down
In a river of trouble
You about to drown
Hold on, I'm coming
Hold on, I'm coming
