1626. This painting is in the National Gallery and it’s by Sir Anthony Van Dyck. In the painting a Genoese noblewoman sits on a throne grasping her son’s chalky hand and to the left of the noblewoman lays a completely screwed-up Oriental rug—which led Bossy to believe she was viewing the very first example of reality TV.
Road Trip who? Oh yeah. So Bossy is in D.C. Does one need an additional period after the C in D.C. if that C indicates the end of the sentence? And when Bossy is inquiring if one needs an additional period she is talking about one who has more than 20 minutes remaining on their parking meter located directly outside of the Silver Spring Starbucks, and when Bossy says one she is talking about one who cares.
Bossy interrupts this
ramble post already in progress for the following Public Service announcement: mmm Mocha Latte.
Next: Bossy loves her D.C. posse. First she hung out in the art museum with Sarah until Bossy mentioned it sure would be nice to have a glass of wi—and before Bossy was finished her sentence Sarah and Bossy were flying down the museum steps on the way to the nearest pub. Which if you know Washington’s National Mall, you know is about six blocks too far and Bossy’s Note To Self: build a bar on the National Mall.
Next Bossy and Sarah went to the blogger get-together in—surprise—a bar. There were hundreds of cool bloggers. Or at least they ordered as if there were hundreds of them—they ordered one each of every appetizer on the menu. Yes way. And raise your hand if you’ve ever eaten Fried Pickles. Hellsa yes, and it comes with dipping sauce because there isn’t enough salt and saturated fat in Fried Pickles eaten alone.
Then Bossy retired to her host’s house, and how sick are we of hearing about Vuboq? Great guy this, great host that. Wish Vuboq luck as he goes off on a job interview today. Because today is the perfect day to interview after a morning of interruption as Bossy hogged the only bathroom.
And lastly: XM radio. It came with Bossy’s anyone? Anyone? Saturn. Bossy would love to tell you all about the abundant assortment of music stations to suit every nationality and genre, but so far Bossy hasn’t budged the radio beyond Oprah & Friends, and about that station, Bossy has this to say: Maya Angelou has a hypnotic voice guaranteed to put anyone to sleep behind the wheel.
