…Get Going

Happy Marathon Monday! Congrats to all those running in the Boston Marathon today. You’re an inspiration.

To the rest of you, it’s time for some Monday motivation.

Happy National Grilled Cheese Day! This beloved comfort food should be celebrated everyday, but that won’t stop me from taking a moment to sing its praises today.

Its brilliant simplicity is what makes it so beloved. Only requiring bread, butter, and cheese, even the most challenged of cooks can manage to get it right (most of the time). Read the rest of this entry

…suffer no fools

As the weekend fast approaches, crusaders, it’s occurred to me that with all of this week’s many events, I overlooked a holiday of certain significance—April Fool’s Day.

In my slight defense, it did share the day with Easter and NBC’s live musical triumph, “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert,” so you can see how it was overlooked.

We’re well into Women’s History Month, so this What to Watch Wednesday I thought I’d take a moment to honor just a few of the fabulous ladies of the smaller screen.

With each passing season, it seems like there are more and more programs not only about women, but featuring more women in front of and behind the camera. On top of that, representation of women on these programs has become increasingly diverse.

A lot of this change is coming from public demand, but it’s also from women in the industry looking out for and lifting each other up. It’s encouraging, and a strong contradiction to the tired trope of women seeing other women as competition.

We’ve by no means reached the ideal. We still have quite a ways to go, but sometimes you to take a moment to appreciate the strides you’ve managed to make. Read the rest of this entry
