Interview with Justice Ginsburg!  Sent to me courtesy of my dear old friend Brady.  Not that he’s actually old, mind you, but I have known him since I was 6.

Tonight?  Away We Go, which I keep wanting to call Up and Away.

    I saw that. Can’t wait to read it. Will come back to discuss.

    Interesting article. I still remember my first day of law school. We had to go around the room and name our favorite Supreme Court justice, then explain why. Since I couldn’t name the whole Supreme Court at the time, I really wanted to drop out then and there. But instead, I confidently stated that I didn’t have a favorite per se, but I had been watching some of Ginsberg’s confirmation hearings and had a good feeling about her. I was such a dweeb . . . now, today, I can name the Supreme Court, but I still don’t have a favorite!

    Yeah, I remember my first few weeks in law school when someone was talking about Scalia’s opinion in some case and the guy was pronouncing Scalia more in the correct Italian way and my bestest law school friend of three long weeks or however long we’d been in school, Jessica Vianes, turned to me and said, “He’s pronouncing it wrong.” And I said, not knowing how the hell to pronounce it having never heard of the guy before, “Well, that’s how it would be pronounced in Italian.” And Jess said, “But that’s not the way Scalia says it.” Eeks! I felt I skated out of that one without revealing my total ignoramus self, but I’m not entirely sure.

    Only Jess would have known how Scalia says his own name. 😉

    I spotted one Alta Charo on Monday at Hilldale. She looked the same.

    Hee hee. She was so cute about it, too — “Um, that’s not how his name is pronounced.”

    Oh, Prof Charo. How we worried one day that table was going to revolt against you sitting on it.

After an extremely long and entertaining (for those over 6) retirement party, my little Bear has crashed with her little bear. . . . I’ve heard through the office grapevine that some peeps don’t think kids should be at events like this. And that’s a legit opinion. But it’s not mine or Aaron’s so I think we should be all good. . . . Retirements are so bittersweet. This one was a doozy. . . . #wisconsin #friends #ourkidcomeswithus #wiscobarkid #bearonbear #workfamily #humility #sincerity #honesty #love #b&w #eyelashes
A series I’m calling An End of a Era: Skye Had a Limit. Truth be told, she ghosted on Skye and the gang maybe two years ago so this era has been over for some time, but I’m just now getting around to offloading it. And in doing so, I was reminded of both how much we accumulated and in how many forms. The Etsy pegdoll form, in which she asked me to give them little matching string scarves; the tiny little ones Molly insisted on painting because she saw it on YouTube; the pirate series; the Patrollers as poofy rubber squishy friends; and so many more. I love how kids get so into these stories and characters, but the merch is overwhelming. Still, I got a teensy emotional clearing it all out. As you may have guessed. . . . . #pawpatrol #cleaninghouse #growingup #etsy #toomuchstuff #growingpains #decluttering #endofanera
The answer when I Googled why I couldn’t see as well. I’m no doctor, but this seems to check out. #googledoc #visionprobs #over40
Somehow this pic disappeared from my feed! I cannot stand for such an injustice. The best breakfast sandwich in Madison must be seen and heralded. Blueberry jalapeño jam?!? Who knew?! @ancorakingst apparently. #madisoneats #sandwiches #breakfastsandwiches #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwichesofwisconsin #sandwichesofmadison #ancoracoffeehouse
The new @ancorakingst is everything. #ancoracoffee #ancorakingst #madisonwi #ancora #ancoramadison #madisoncoffeeshop #kingstreetbusinesses
