I just finished reading Harpo Speaks. What a marvelous, marvelous, wonderful, joyous book! I adored every page. It's given me a deep desire to see all the Marx Brothers movies again; we watched A Night at the Opera a couple weeks ago; I know I also own Duck Soup (the one I know best); I have to see if I have any of the others. It's been ages since I've seen some of them.
Menopause has been kicking my ass for over a year now. Last month I thought -- I THOUGHT -- that maybe I'd finally come to the end of the misery, as I went over four weeks without a sign of my period and I was feeling active and alert and energetic... then this month came, and I have now HAD my period for the ENTIRE FREAKING MONTH. It's been on-again, off-again, sometimes barely there and now gushing freely, keeping me wildly alternating between the energetic soul I WISH to be and some lazy, chocolate-guzzling SLUG.

Although I know it's a historical cemetery (although still open to new burials), the oldest grave I could find was 1909 (bonus shot):

Gail Collins has a series of Extremely Funny articles about Donald Trump and his, ahem, race for the Oval Office. She rocks. A favorite quote from her most recent column: At least it’ll give us a chance to reminisce about Senator Jon Kyl, who gave that speech against federal support for Planned Parenthood last week that was noted for: A) its wild inaccuracy; and B) his staff’s explanation that the remarks were “not intended to be a factual statement.” Why is it Arizona's senators suck so very, very much? At least Stephen Colbert got a lot (a LOT) of mileage out of Kyl's speech.
Not intended to be a factual statement.
