Random Neuron Firings
I did not know there has been a tiger shelter operating in my town for the last 10 years. Odd.
Good Monday to you – I hope your weekend was delightful! Before I get to my day, which largely consists of being chained to this box, updating tour accounts, some RNFs:
So yeah, Mad Men. What a great opening episode last night. Full of symbolic dialogue and images (as usual), with a couple of surprises thrown in.
One of my favorite characters in the show is Sal, the closeted gay art director: completely Manhattan-Italian-hip, smooth, debonair, and hopelessly unhappy and repressed (read: married). He represents to me the whole of the cast — a bunch of upwardly-mobile, complicated, successful people, trying desperately to be someone else at all costs. It’s a fascinating look at human nature. I luv it.
The Thriller officially starts his graduate education today. From 9 until 2, he’s at the seminary for orientation for the Licensed Clinical Counselor program. I am excited for him! Here he is, just before leaving this morning. I had to take a picture, you know, like your mom did when you left for your first day of school.
All he’s missing is the backpack and the lunch.
Off to my day at the box. Stuck doing update work. Boring, but at least I’m air-conditioned. (Nasty hot/humid today.)
