Better Living Through Nepotism

Title: “Knowing Your Value: Women, Money and Getting What You’re Worth”

Author: Mika Brzezinski

Rank: 73

Blurb: “It’s no secret that women have long been overlooked and under-compensated, and while great strides have made in recent decades, the value placed on women versus their male counterparts is still consistently unbalanced. In Knowing Your Value, bestselling author Mika Brzezinski takes an in-depth look at how women today achieve their deserved recognition and financial worth.”

Review: “Mika reminded me of myself and how she handled certain situations so I was able to appreciate that aspect of the book. Would I have taken my co-host’s money if he gave it to me?”

It’s not as infuriating as if say, Paris Hilton or the Trumpian Candidate… um… “wrote” it. To me this is more of a Gwyneth Paltrow kind of annoying.

Oh, so did my comment not load, or did it get deleted?

ADD: Wow. Paranoia is a fucked up thing. I think I never submitted it.

Meanwhile, in better living through monomaniacal self-aggrandizement, Breitbart, the thinking man’s Trump, publishes pics of ‘Weiner’s’ weiner. Oh, click on it, for God’s sake. You know you want to see it.

Amazing, isn’t it, how many people who were born with silver spoons in their mouths come to believe that they personally created them while in the womb. I find Mika especially offputting in that regard.

@lynnlightfoot: That’s exactly how the aristocracy works. I’ve recommended this before but one of the most amusing storylines in Manor House is watching the provincial attorney who is chosen to be Lord of the manor come to look upon his status as entirely right and fitting given his innate superiority to the ‘staff’. And this with the man who assumes the role of butler having an international career as an architect.

The cover photo suggests that she would enjoy being spanked.

@lynnlightfoot: As the great Ann Richards said of Bush, “He was born on third and thinks he hit a triple.”

@JNOV knows Dick: Awesome avatar. Very 4th of July.

BTW. The carbon offset willow, salix jnov “crazy curls” is doing well in its first spring.

@Benedick HRH KFC: I think about it and your kindness often, but I’m too shy to ask how the tree is faring. salix jnov crazy curls? Wow. <3 So many of us have been on the shitty side of human behavior that when the awesome side comes out…you're just awesome, okay?

Think I should put a nosegay or a poppy on that penis?

Oh, I didn't know this:

First enacted by formerly enslaved African-Americans [2] to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War – it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.

@JNOV knows Dick: It’s just a baby tree, my dear, but one day it will grow large and fall over and kill somebody. I’ll take some pics sometime soon. I got outside yesterday and today in the first time in too long and had a pretty grand time weeding. The older dogs were in the pond and the puppy was playing Rocket Pug.

Didn’t know that about poppies. I think of them from France. We have an old-fashioned double. If I had my druthers they’d be the classic singles but they’ve been here longer than me so I’m not about to complain. Peonies on the way. Everything is giant-sized this year from all the rain. I swear the trees grew three feet last week.

@Benedick HRH KFC: The white poppy was on the flag penis’s left nut — now it’s on JoBi’s head — for remembrance day. I’ll put up the penis later.

Please explain Rocket Pug.

I think I’m going to start a container garden on our roof.

Okay — I’m totally putting a nosegay on the penis!

@JNOV knows Dick: Rocket Pug is when puppies do the mad puppy dash, running and running around the garden. In this case the pug.

@Benedick HRH KFC: :-)

Okay — lemme see what havoc I can wreak with a poppy, a nosegay and a penis.
