The guy in this story used to work with my husband. I love them, although, I can’t believe they agreed to be in this story. And yes I realize the irony in making that statement considering I’ve made my entire relationship public through my own writing!
Went to another RANDnext policy discussion. I just love that there’s a way for us to participate and support such a renowned research institute. This one was on California’s water crisis and moderated by Molly Peterson from KPCC. It got rather heated. I always hate when people use a Q&A as a chance to argue. But the speakers were fascinating. I love the proposal for meters that track inside vs. outside use and would have different pricing for both.
Went to the Emmys tonight with my friend Jessica who I met in pre-school! We’re sitting right behind the Transparent posse if you’re watching at home!
Yeah for the fake meat revolution! Vegetarianism isn’t all or nothing. Meat eaters eating less meat is a big victory for us all!
We finally caught up on HBO’s Show Me a Hero about public housing in Yonkers. My mom kept saying that the way people talk in the show reminded her of my Bubbie, my Great-Grandmother, because she and my Great-Grandfather used to live in Yonkers. Of course, it’s a little awkward because all the people from Yonkers on the show are racist. But we’re probably all descended from people who were a little racist. But either way, I loved the show. David Simon has to be the most brilliant show runner in the history of TV. No one else could possibly make good TV about a fight over low-income housing.
