Cock-a-Mania

Happy Year of the Fire Rooster! Are you doing anything special to celebrate? Last year, I decked the house and had a few friends over for takeout, but I’ve been doing a January cleanse of sorts and the thought of being sage when there’s Chinese food about — well, I just wasn’t having it. More than willing to accept red envelopes, though.

Meanwhile…

Not sure if we’ll ever know what state it’s in, but Riverdale is good, sudsy fun.

I’ve already put Brian on notice that all bets are off if Calexit happens.

She may have been a native New Yorker, but MTM inspired a lot of Midwestern women.

Personally, though, I prefer this tribute. 

I was flipping through House Beautiful and saw some amazing lucite chairs. Little did I know, Among Other Things had a similar set, just a few blocks from my house. Must investigate. 

Trix was on TV!

I’m going to try to take my mind off politics for the weekend (will probably have to avoid all media for that), and catch my talented niece’s show choir performance with the GaGas. Rumor has it, they’re doing a gender-bending homage to The Little Mermaid — with the sea witch singing You’ll Be Back from Hamilton(!). I’d also really like to take my mom to see Hidden Figures if she’s feeling well, and try to move the ball forward a little bit on some shelving that I’ve been dying to do in our basement. 

Enjoy the final weekend of the penultimate full month of winter!
