1. I am reading Mackenzie Phillips’ memoir.  It is very raw, and hard to read because of that, but it isn’t written from a place of self-pity or self-aggrandization.  It’s very well written, actually.  Fun Fact: when I was little, Mom stopped letting me watch One Day at a Time because of Phillips’ publicized drug abuse. 
  2. I heard someone use the term “Barakcracy” today, without irony. 
  3. The only thing different in presidential administrations is the group of people griping about them.
  4. I must look really different with Pageant Hair because three different people who have met me several times have introduced themselves to me today. 
  5. PieFive is awesome.
