Brands and connections

I have been a Caps fan for ... forever. Some of my greatest childhood memories are going to those games out in Landover with my Dad. Now my husband and I go to home games and it's a whole new set of memories. When the SE Championship banner was raised Saturday night, I cried. An emotional pride and adoration for a team, an organization ans a sport that has been a huge part of my life. Now that's brand satying power. A big thank you to Ted Leonsis for leading the organization to this place. It's a beautiful thing to watch.

Follow up to Microsoft Post

Interesting that the campaign was such a failure initially. I really like the ones now: "I am PC." Why wouldn't they have just gone with that? Jerry couldn't have been cheap!


Between the crazy economic situation and political climate, it's a time of great uncertainty. You have to laugh. Makes things better.

Plus the Red Sox won last night. And hockey season statrts next week. Go CAPS!

Being called sexist, because I question RNC VP Nominee is insane. I am a woman. I am educated. I am relatively informed on issues and politics. I just don't see how being snarky and mocking someone's grass-roots involvement is not working woth the people. More so than an executive anyday. And to read comments from my fellow Americans that say that if I as a woman don't support her, I am anti-woman? NUTS!

Too much work. Too much politics. Too much stress. Wow ... do I need to get away. Luckily I am heading out Friday for 4 days of peace & quiet. No facebook. No Twitter. No email. No laptop. No work. Phew! I need it ... adn I can't wait.

And only six weeks till hockey season ... woo-hoo!

Beautiful Illustrations

Heard from Buzz Feed (on Twitter) about these. Artist Dyna Moe has designed some beautiful, retro-style illustrations based on Mad Men. See photos here.
