I remember when aluminum trees were first on the market and had to be lit by small floodlights with color changing wheels. Putting lights on them was deemed an electrocution hazard.

Mid century modern was potentially deadly to cats in particular.

Thanks for explaining that. I always thought my friend's family did that because it was cutting edge, in a Jetsons sort of way.

When I was a little girl, I taught my baby sister to say “pink stinks”, but she would have hated pink even if I hadn’t taught her to. Pink was for prissy little girls who didn’t even climb trees (a thing I did in my *purple* skirts and dresses, because I wouldn’t have been caught dead in something as uncomfortable as pants).

Fast forward 30 years, and my baby girl, who had been dressed in all the colors, and whose nursery was a rainbow of colors, chooses pink as her favorite as soon as she’s able to voice an opinion. Fine, she chose it as opposed to having it thrust upon her by default. And that’s when I realized it’s a fabulous color, because it’s VISIBLE, which counts when your kid never stops moving at the speed of light. And guess who can find their AirPod case with ease (my husband has embraced it for this reason also) She still loves pink even though the cool girls don’t wear pink, because she likes what she likes and doesn’t give a shit.

I am convinced women see colors differently than men... especially the color dust.

Dave Barry: "Evolution has furnished the genders with different senses of dirt. Women are designed to detect individual microbes. Men are designed to detect when there is sufficient soil to commence agriculture."

Women are actually supposed to be more sensitive to the differences between shades. Also, men are more prone to color blindness.

That may be generally true but my brother could detect the difference in fabric colors even if the name was the same but they were from slightly different dye batches. That was his job in fact.

Side note: for much of history, pink - a lighter and softer version of the manly and martial color red - was for boys and blue - associated with water and the Virgin Mary - for girls. It started shifting around the 1890s through WWI (I think) since military uniforms in many parts of Europe were blue.

Expand full comment

A slightly-older-than-me friend, who went to an all girls catholic school, told me that some poor schnook girl she knew had been "dedicated to the Virgin Mary" by her parents and always wore pale blue.

Thanks Ma and Pop for sending us to public school!

I was never big on pink but during the pandemic, when i needed color in my life! I bought hot pink flip flops and purse. I liked them a lot and bought a hot pink sweater and got compliments on how it looks good on me (which is admittedly very fair) and so it was born. I have on a pink fleece top now (my WFH pajamas).

I was brought up with a male cousin my age. When we got matching pink or blue gifts (bank, backbrush), I would take blue as my favorite color---hated pink---and he'd take pink as ,his favorite color was red and pink is just light red. Don't ask about that one Halloween we went as Dutch boy and girl.

I have too much red in my hair to carry off the color pink. Lavender, however, tends to flatter my skin tone and particularly my dark brown eyes very nicely.

But despite my former disdain for the hue I no longer outright despise that color for being "too cute" or girlie for me.

Expand full comment

Good on her. I, being female and of short stature, was forced to pink (bedspread, walls, clothing) and I am still very reluctant to have anything pink near my person. I will go “blush” but “pink” is not a comfortable choice.

"Tropical fish in Nova Scotia"

2015 was when I first heard a cenzontle* singing in our apartment courtyard in San Francisco. I'd heard them all the time in L.A., but SF was just too far north. Now I hear them all the time here. I mean, they have the most beautiful of bird songs, but I don't think it's a great sign that they've spread 400 miles north.

*also too, "cenzontle" comes from Nahuatl and means "possessor of 400 words," which I find pretty cool and accurate.

I'm TeamKrugman. Why does anyone need 3,000 words to say anything? I got an invitation to write something that according to the guidelines "should be between 3,000 and 7,500 words," and after two drafts I'm still at 600 words. WTF.

She was busy nudging Jimmy into action after all.

I met her once when she was campaigning for his second term. She was over at the Family Garment factory talking up union workers. Actually it was more "wow shes just 2 blocks from my house", so I walked through a couple of alleys and got to see her from the back of the group.

Look - newly-elected Houston Mayor John Whitmire is a Democrat, not a Republican. I know, I know - he's not a "liberal/progressive" Democrat but he IS a Democrat and has always been a Democrat.

All the GOP powerbrokers and money guys and general rich Republicans supported Whitmire; a bunch of them held fundraisers too. They knew that the Republican running had no chance to win, so they decided to back the guy who could win.

You know what I did? I congratulated them on voting for a Democrat and noted that in doing so, nothing bad happened. They didn't spontaneously combust; they weren't kicked out of their country clubs; their taxes didn't immediately rise.

And I told them that if they did it once, they could surely do it again!

Exactly! Thank you! John Whitmire won't be confused with AOC any time soon but he's still a solid Democrat and far better than that rat bastard Tony Buzbee.

Buzbee got his ass handed to him AGAIN, didn't he?

You know, it probably would have been worth it to have him on the council. I once asked a city council member what it was like and she said, "It's a full-time job with part-time pay".

There's no way Buzbee would have dedicated the time it would have taken to be one minority council member out of the whole bunch, and it would have been kind of funny to watch him implode and ultimately quit.

Expand full comment

You are so right about him and I just hope he'll finally stick to ambulance chasing or whatever law he practices and stay the hell out of politics from now on. I graduated from TAMU and have gotten into so many arguments with other Aggies for not supporting his crooked ass just because he's an Aggie. Buzbee can go to hell and stay there.

The real question is after you say good morning to someone at work and then about 15 minutes later you are about to pass eachother in an empty hallway, a long empty hallway, do say hello or good morning again? Because eff that. Of course I’m neurodivergent so I might be biased.

Back in my youth, you walked more than drove. Pop had the car for work.

So you said "Hi" to everyone and felt like you got to know the regulars you saw daily.

I was most impressed as a kid when a railroad guy on break was looking out a window and yelled down to my mother "Hi there Margie!" turns out he knew her father from working in the rail yard.

What amused me most when we moved to this side of town once I got married, was that we seemed to be in a neighborhood with a Quiet Guy competition. Both the old guys on either side of us would grunt "Good Morning" at you once. After that the rest of the day, no conversation was ever initiated. Except for emergencies or to warn you that the tulips you're planting will get less impressive every year.

Set up a command center on the toilet consisting of a tablet or laptop on which you can watch something while getting cleaned out. That's what I did.

I have become far too jaded not to expect that either 1) voting has been so thoroughly suppressed and/or gerrymandered that the will of the majority is irrelevant, or 2) a majority of voters in these states will continue to vote for Republicans anyway.
