1. I am tilting toward a cultural category known as the hipster homemaker – Emily Matchar’s term for women who are choosing crafting, cooking, canning, farming, and intensive parenting over the 9 to 5. I am shocked and appalled to understand that now that I carry this mantle, I must choose whether it is, as The Washington Post article suggests, fun, empowering, or a step back for American women. Can’t a girl just grow a tomato in peace?
2. Cadillac has a new electric car and a commercial to go with it. We discuss the Huffington Post outrage over this commercial that we all enjoy and think it funny. Is the Huffington Post taking things too seriously?
3. Harold Ramis who wrote and starred in the Ghostbuster movies recently died. I loved Ghostbusters when I was a kid. I learned alot of life lessons from these movies. What could you possibly learn from such a movie, you ask? Well you will have to listen to find out.
For your enjoyment, mom’s favorite scene:
Good news! Ghostbusters I and II are both streaming on Netflix if we inspire you to do some reminiscing of your own.
Enrichments or Enragements:
