Random Thoughts

Clothing manufacturers should have to agree on standard sizes. A person shouldn’t swim in a size 10 from one brand and not be able to pull a 10 from another brand over their body.

If I had power, this would be a priority. Queen Elizabeth really dropped the ball. But she wasn’t shopping for herself now, was she.

Capitalism is well and good. But once you get an obscene amount of money, that should be enough. Jeff Bezos’ $140B is sickening while there are so many people who are struggling. Somehow, I think he could get by on one measly billion and use the rest to help people who need it. He and others like him must isolate themselves from everyday reality to such a degree that they forget about hunger and homelessness. Or they just don’t care. However, millions of people who are living paycheck-to-paycheck will disagree and say this opinion is an attack on freedom.

For me, being anti-vax is no longer a legitimate alternate point of view. Reading stories on the Internet is not “doing research”. I’m not going to argue. I’ll still scroll past the messaging. But this is what’s in my heart. There’s simply too much evidence that vaccines save lives.

I am starting to believe that we would have been better off without the Internet and social media. (see above)

Wanting society to be open and fair to everyone takes nothing away from anyone. It’s like being asked to scootch down on a bench so someone can get a seat at the table. That has no negative effect on the person doing the scootching. In fact, they just might find themselves in an interesting conversation they wouldn’t have had otherwise. Opening their mind a little. Embracing the rainbow, as it were.

The TV show King of Queens used a different house for the exterior shots of Doug and Carrie’s home. Hey, Kevin James – we noticed it didn’t match. And for that matter, where did the dog from season one disappear to?

Poutine is disgusting. Give me a dry, crispy fry. And make it from sweet potatoes, please.

If you have a little time for something wonderful, watch Tom Hanks’ funny, insightful and wise commencement address to Harvard grads last week. It’s worth it.

When someone who hires you for a voice-over wins an award by submitting your work, they should have to tell you about it! I found this out quite by accident last week. This was part of a gold winner for the Muse Awards – a marketing award. And everyone keeps advising me to talk about my successes more often. So here I am.

  1. Agree with you about poutine. My husband I have a disagreement about it. I think it’s a waste of fries and gravy and he thinks it’s a waste of cheese curds.

  2. Congratulations on the award that you contributed to! Definitely something to share! I had to smile at the crispy fries-sweet potatoes, please. We had some at the Harbour Air dockside restaurant last month in Victoria. They were thin, crispy and de-li-cious!
    I don’t understand how letting everyone have their seat at the table is so scary for some people.

    1. Thanks, Debra. I don’t either. I saw a tweet from a man who felt “assaulted” by a Pride flag on a Shopper’s Drug Mart window. Seriously? Annnnnyway… thanks for your comment!
