Happy Birthday, Carrie Fisher

Today would have been Carrie Fisher‘s 64th birthday.

Instead of droning as to why she was and still is an inspiration to millions, I will let her work speak for itself.

We miss you, Carrie.

Thank You for Voting: The Maddening, Enlightening, Inspiring Truth About Voting in America Book Review

In theory, voting in a political election in a legitimate democracy should be a simple task. You choose your candidate(s), walk up to the ballot box and and enter your selection. The votes are then counted. The winner of the election is the candidate who has the most votes.

But politics is never simple.

Thank You for Voting: The Maddening, Enlightening, Inspiring Truth About Voting in America was published back in June. Written by Erin Geiger Smith, the book explains the voting process and why we should all vote.

I really loved this book. Broken down into laymen’s terms, the book is part encouragement and part history lesson. It is also bipartisan, encouraging the reader to go the polls, regardless of party affiliation. It is a book that we all should be reading. For me, it was a reminder why it is important to vote and why I take pride in saying that I voted.

I recommend it.

Thoughts on Wear a Mask (Be Our Guest Parody)

For the last 7 months, we have been reminded to wear our masks when we leave our homes.

In case there are fools out there who think that they don’t need to wear a mask, this lovely reminder from Beauty and the Beast could not be clearer.

In other words, shut up and just put on a dam mask.
