It's January what-th? Seriously? No. Way.
But it is. It's beyond the middle of the month, which means it is pretty much February, and that means it is almost spring! Right? Please? Ah, but no. We've just had the prettiest big snow. The slog continues.
I shall warn you now, this post is going to be an exercise in stream of consciousness randomness. It's just been a while and I feel like I Have So Much to Say! Like, right now, I just want to remark upon the shittiness of James Cameron's Golden Globes acceptance speech. Meryl Streep, on the other hand, is made of class. I want to be her when I grow up.
And THEN let's address CNN's coverage of the Haiti disaster. Other than Dr. Gupta, who is awesome, the reporters are just so...dumb. "This is so hard to cover," they keep saying, and yet the cameras, they do not turn away. You know what, I get it. It is awful, horrible, terrible, and my heart is broken in a million pieces for those poor people. But after a while, the relentless coverage makes me go a bit numb. Maybe I need a media break, or maybe I have built up a protective candy coating because I have this wee one slumbering in her crib. My rewired mama-brain cannot take too much misery.
But THEN I have to say how awesome is it that it is as simple as sending a text to help? So awesome. Thanks, technology.
So. Erf. I runned out of steam. I do have other things to say about hands, snow, and being social. I'll just leave you in suspense on that twaddle.
