I've been watching Star Trek: Discovery and seeing all these women on screen is a gift.
But Oyin Olajado - a Nigerian-born Canadian - getting in the ring and shifting her body language from "Wait, how fight?" to "Hello, I am Joann Owosekun and I'll be kicking your ass today", taking down someone so much bigger than she was in about 10 seconds? I sat on the sofa and cried and finally managed "I wish ita could see this. She'd be critiquing the whole thing, but she'd be grinning as she did it."
Oh, too true. I love Owo, and I wish they would give her more to do.
I miss so many of us, but in this particular moment I’m reminded of Ginger keeping us all calm and informed when the massive earthquake and tidal waves hit Japan and its nuclear facility. I’d look to her now in these scary moments of Putin’s aggressive assault on the Ukrainian nuclear plant. Sigh. Sigh for all of it, the losses we’ve felt, and the losses others are feeling right this moment.
Remembering omnis_audis on the anniversary of his birth. BC was with us far too short a time and made a profound impact on so many lives.
I missed this post earlier, Laura, but thank you. I thought of BC a lot on his birthday this year.
Today let's give a thought and smile in remembrance of Ginger's birthday. I think of her often and am sorry she was here too briefly.
It's always a little bittersweet when I'm scrolling through FB memories and find a comment from Ginger, or Ed or Connie.
But, now it's more sweet than bitter and I do like seeing their words commenting on something so many years ago.
I was going through a box and found a Christmas card Ed sent me maybe 15 years ago. He was a good one.
Ed was indeed a good one. Today was his birthday. I'm truly grateful he was a part of our lives, and oh how he is missed.
It always galls me that Ed died before he could see the Dodgers win another World Series. Same with Ginger missing the Braves championship.
My FB memories pulled up a post from JZ where she was talking about watching Grand Budapest Hotel for the first time and praising Ralph Fiennes performance. And there was a comment there by Frankenbuddha promising to come out and visit us in San Francisco some day.
Don't postpone those trips, people!
