Oh boy. The Donald sure is making noise and attracting huge crowds. I have friends in Sandwich NH who are excited to hear him speak. Donald said that twice already he’s had to change venues in Mobile Alabama to handle the increased numbers who want to see him there.
Morning Joe’s Mika and Joe were both singing his praises today. Yes, Mika was impressed with his ability to capture the audience.
Let’s plan a rainy day guessing game:
Which Time phrase do you think best matches Donald Trump: You can pick more than one. Or add one of your own.
1. A devil of a time
2. It’s about time!
3. Ahead of one’s time?
4. Big time
5. Crunch time
6. All in good time
7. Better luck next time
8. Desperate times?
9. Borrowed time?
10. Legend in his own time
11. Right on time
12. It’s high time
13. Time is on his side
14. When the time is ripe
15. Time and tide wait for no Donald
16. Time out?
My opinion of The Donald is more run that by me one more time again than in the right place at the right time but what do they say politics makes strange bedfellows!
I don’t know a living soul who reads Time today. I don’t even choose it if I’m sitting in the dentist waiting room. Like most people my age, I grew up in a household that subscribed to magazines – lots of them…not only Time, but Life, and National Geographic. My dad read Fortune, Forbes, The Economist. Mom got Good Housekeeping. They both read Golf Digest. The New Yorker. Time and Life were particularly devoured – way before there was any 24/7 news and when a weekly magazine was actually relevant. Imagine that.
And in my own mad genius childhood world, I’d buy Mad Magazine and howl. I was such a misunderstood child! I’d read it and dream that I would be the editor of that magazine one day. This blog is close, isn’t it? It has a certain je ne sais quoi madness quality on days, right?
I actually read a lot more online today than I do getting the physical magazine. Mr. EOS gets Fine Homebuilding. We used to get This Old House but it became more frivolous than instructive so we stopped it. I’ll still read Martha Stewart’s Living Magazine but I tend to grab one at the grocery store or in an airport rather than subscribing. I subscribe to Architectural Digest and Coastal Living, using more the digital format on my iPad than the paper version.
ANYWAY, speaking of mad genius, wasn’t that a nice segue there from The Donald to Time?
My FitBit is arriving today so I’m holding off running a half-marathon until it’s here and registers all my steps. The rain looks imminent but we could use it.
