Got That Rite


Although I am fortunate to make a living wage in a two-income household, I still cannot believe how much more expensive CVS and Duane Reade stores are than Rite Aid. (My loyalty status gave me 20% off everything in the joint!) The one by me closed last year in some merger bullshit as did the one by my ex-workwife, who knows me so well. I honestly don't understand how most people live in this city.

Remains of the Day (03/30)

Various: Martina Navratilova was blacklisted for saying there needs to be more than just self-ID for trans women to compete in elite sports -- and now someone is hilariously driving the point home ... to the dismay of a champion trans(!) power-lifter in Alberta. BTW: No one is saying average trans people are "obsessed" with sports -- that's what rightwing lunatics do, blow issues that affect very few out of proportion. But by not getting AHEAD of this, activists hurt all LGBT people by letting extremist views -- allowing someone with XY chromosomes who has taken zero measures to transition to compete in girls' sports -- help ignite a culture war, a war we were winning just a few years ago.


I would totally buy one of these ... if I ever had the desire to spend time outside.

Postcard From Xmas 1988

Came across this impossibly great postcard my brother Bill sent me from London over the holidays back in 1988. (Yes, only in Britain would you find a postcard of Annabel Croft, who of course is now a television "presenter.” the U.K.'s most-ubiquitous profession.) 

The references to Kate Brasher, Shakin' Stevens, bootleg cassettes and young Madonna sure take me back, as does cat-sitting for Twinkie. I do occasionally come across old emails from friends and family, but never do they move me the way an old letter or card does. xo

Bill and the feline in question 

P.S. I happen to follow Croft on Twitter but haven't heard back about this find!
