I'm In Anchorage! (click to read the article)


Too much! I ended up in the Anchorage Daily News with a blurb from my HuffPo piece on Sarah Palin yesterday. Someone get me a sweater! Who says I never get to leave CT? BTW, doesn't Anchorage look beautiful in that photo?

Can I have your autograph? You just keep getting famouser and famouser.

It was a great post, Kim. McCain's choice should make Republicans question his judgement.

That does look pretty! And it couldn't have any worse weather than "beautiful" Woodinville, WA, today, where we have rain and 64. Uh, happy end of summer?

I thought the same thing, Kim, as your Huffpo post! And of course, felt like a "bad feminist" doing so. But, we all make choices about what's best for our families. Of course, if she were a Dem doing this, the family values Reps. would rake her across the coals for putting her family second. The short maternity leaves -- she claimed she worked the DAY AFTER giving birth to her 6 yo daughter when she was mayor. Uh, good for you, lady, but don't go expecting the rest of us women to follow suit. No, I like that most women are expected to take time off to bond with their babies after they're born. And Hubby's job even offers MEN paid time off to bond with their newborns and help their wives -- they can take 4 weeks off with full pay up to 6 months after their child is born! That's the way things SHOULD be, or at least in my fantasy world.

No Kim...You are not old fashioned. Just realistic.
But the reference to Donna Reed has me picturing you with pearls and an apron. I don't know, did Donna listen to Frank Sinatra and make "gravy"? Somehow I don't think so. She is more of a pot roast and mashed potatoes type of gal. Maybe Glen Miller on her turntable?

Thanks for keeping it real.

Yes I have pearls. And a sweater set! And I just moved into a VERY retro ranch built in 1961 - I love it! I also have a crockpot. Oh yes, a crockpot. Donna probably served ketchup on noodles though. You're right! :)

I was raised in a '61 ranch. Four kids in a 5 room, one bathroom, house. Oh the memories of hearing my brothers fart in their sleep, my father snoring and my mother saying her rosary, after the 11PM news (I finally know why she felt the need to say them so loudly...she has kids:)

Hope you have many wonderful memories in your new home.
