“People choose to stop when they have suffered more than enough, and when circumstances lend a hand. And, when the possibility of self-control becomes as attractive — more attractive — than any other possibility, including temporary relief.”
— Marc Lewis – Neuroscientist
“For all of you “housewives” out there, which of course is a term I employ that means anybody who has ever had to clean up somebody else’s shit and not been paid for it…”
— Roseanne Barr
Thank you for everything you did. Especially regarding Health Insurance and preexisting conditions. I felt safe with you as President. And you are super intelligent.

Last week I had a day where I made a lot of mistakes and my new boss was pointing them out to me. The mistakes were all things I had never dealt with before, or little comedies of errors.
Nurse Jackie is one of my favorite shows. A couple weeks ago I finished watching the show; didn’t want it to end.
Loved this clip where character Gloria Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) is looking for a new job and the woman who is interviewing her doesn’t care about Akalitus’ life experience; the employer wants someone with a Master’s Degree.
Have you ever experience age discrimination while looking for a new job? It’s awful and so insulting.
I adore employers who hire human beings over 50-years-young.
