Shelley is the host for this edition.
1.The Donald. Shelley’s funny bone is being tickled non-stop by all the whohaa about Donald Trump running for President. People are going out of their minds with outrage over what he is saying, and are aghast that he is ahead in some states. The ladies discuss what are the effects of such an outspoken candidate on the election and particularly what is the value of his bombast and putative plain speaking. Clarification: It is indeed 15 days after announcing candidacy that the one-page document must be submitted to the Federal Election Commission. Trump made that deadline. His candidacy is formally named Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. Guess he is serious.
2.It’s Alive!? Reports are zinging around fast and furious(!!) about whether alien bacterial lifeforms are below the crust of Comet 67P/Churyumov/Geresimenko, where Philae landed and Rosetta orbits. Are we ready for this? Jen and Cait are less than impressed and quite blase although all three ladies are entranced by all the gallant little robots out there doing their lonely jobs. Jen wants to send forth some of Earth’s extremophiles and see what happens.
3.🎶 I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends🎶. It is generally accepted that humans are social animals although Cait has yet to be convinced. The ladies have quite a different take on what friendship is and their desire or need for it. Cait is curmudgeonly(surprise, surprise) yet has a BF just not forever; Jen likes the idea of community rather than friends; and Shelley values the people in her life that “know the history”.
Enrichments or Enragements:
|Jen is enraged by President Obama’s abysmal failure to rectify the byzantine tax code as he promised when campaigning. It gets worse instead of better. Have you received a gift card instead of your refund?? Go get’em, Jen!!!|
|Cait is enriched by the purchase of her tickets to come home this summer for a much-needed vaca. Can’t wait, Skooter Pie!!|
|Shelley is enriched by John getting his heart’s desire–a natty 1964 Sunbeam Alpine. Go, Johnie, go!!|
