Miscellaneous Mishegoss

baffled-smiley-emoticonMy local newspaper is The Washington Post. It is printed on 12×22 (approx.) paper. The front section (Section A) was 20 pages today. There was a special section today devoted to the local hockey team (the Caps), who BTW just won The Stanley Cup. This special section was 30 full size pages. There was also a special section about the World Cup, this was 6 full size pages. Therefore one can infer that sports is more important than world and national news. Given the state of the nation and the world, I can understand why people would rather read sports news.

baffled-smiley-emoticonToday is June 11th. The current temperature is 61º and the humidity is 88%. It is chilly, dark and dank. I am wearing thick socks, heavy leggings and a long sleeve shirt. Aside from the humidity, I can easily live with the temperature and the dark – the dank and humidity are another story. But still, I’ll take this as opposed to 90+º with equal humidity.

Referencing yesterday’s post, I would offer you this short (just barely 3 minutes) video by Brené Brown called ‘Empathy’ – I do hope you will take 3 minutes out of your schedule to watch it…

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you tomorrow.

  1. That’s the kind of weather we had here yesterday although without the chilly part.
    I watched the video but have a hard time hearing them, I think I caught most of it though

  2. You sure do have our weekend weather! We had rain added with the cold and it felt like winter. Today it was 69 and sunny here so the windows were opened!

    I watched the video. I like Brene Brown for reasons such as that video. I’m usually pretty good at being empathetic and am working on it more in my health coach courses. I’ll have to remember to not do the ‘At least’!

    1. We had crazy rain on Sunday but the temps were in the 70’s but it felt cold and sticky at the same time – it was really hard to make things comfortable – a/c made it too cold, no a/c made it too sticky – just dreadful.

      Yeah, that “at least” thing is what I’m talking about…it’s dismissive. It is a slap in the face.
