  1. I think you’re absolutely right, AM. We’re such a dumb and distracted planet to be sure. One of the best books I ever taught was Neil Postman’s AMUSING OURSELVES TO DEATH, published in 1985, and remarkably, remarkably prescient about the effects of the electronic media on our society. My theory: I think we’re aliens dropped here for some grand experiment and I fear we’re proving the experimenter’s theory to be oh-so-true … and that ain’t good. πŸ™‚ Have a great day, Miss!

    • Ah, “prescient,” one of my favorite words!
      I like to think we humans are entertaining, not ourselves, but maybe those aliens you speak of. They have a bet to see how far this earth race can run. πŸ˜‰
      That book sounds fascinating, Deb. Another one to add to the reading list.
      You sure you don’t want to return to teaching;)


      • You may borrow that word, “prescient,” Miss, if I may borrow “paper cottage.” πŸ˜‰ And the only way I’d return to teaching is if I get to make up my own class, choose my own books, and not have to grade one damn paper and issue no grades. So, it seems I probably won’t find my “dream job” any too soon. LOL (The book is really good.)

      • How would you feel about subbing for me tomorrow – fourth grade – lots o’fun πŸ˜‰
        You may have the paper cottage, deal πŸ™‚
        I wonder if J.Gatsby would have been a good teacher…
        gosh, I wish I could close my eyes and be drinking with Hemingway. I keep seeing us in matching black turtlenecks with tumbler glasses in hand. Ice chinking and low lit smiles…what the heck does this mean…


      • Uh, I’m gonna pass on the subbing offer, and take you up on the “paper cottage” offer. What your dream means is … you’ve got a Hemingway-expat-European crush which can’t be overcome unless you read lots of Hem, try to read Gertrude Stein (good luck), and throw in some Picasso. And Gatsby would probably be a lush. Speaking of which, do you think it’s too late to start drinking wine? I just got home from the track and feel I tremendously deserve it. You should start an “advice column” and I could start my comment “Dear AnnaMaria Alberghetti-Not-Her-Real-Name” … LOL


      • I think my brain is going to crossover to a weird land when I sleep and Hemingway, Gatsby and I will spend the entire dream looking for F. Scott… we find him and we all end up in some backlit cafΓ© in a place I’ve never been…but they’ve all been there before….oooo…we all drink too much…and then I say I have to get up early to write my advice column and they say don’t go we’ll write it for you πŸ˜‰
        You may have wine at moontime πŸ™‚

      • I think you’re scripting Woody Allen’s next film, Miss (can’t think of the title of the one about Hem, but I’m sure you saw it). You’ll find F. Scott sloshed (as per his usual) with Zelda sloshed as well, πŸ™‚ Wine at moontime, eh? That’s a frickin’ long time to wait! πŸ™‚

      • I think maybe you’re a couple of mugs ahead of me, Miss, πŸ™‚ And yes, you get a whole bottle for the artwork — it’s very good (as per your usual). You know me, I’m a “word chick,” so my eyes (which are okay! yay!) glom to the words first and foremost. But yes, your artwork — and your words — deserve more wine. πŸ˜‰

      • I’m drinking cabernet now, too. I read where it has less sugar. You may have a whole extra “box,” if you’d like. You know, all this talk about Hem & Fitzgerald makes me want to read A Moveable Feast again. Okay, darnit (G-rated), by-golly, I’m doin’ it!!! You’re up late, ain’t ja?

      • This is funny, Lillian the Home Poet was just discussing wine too – you gotta check out her blog…you guys are simpaticΓ‘
        and yes, I must retire shortly or 4th graders will literally be holding my eyelids open with pencils – something they might enjoy if they can reach up high enough! There are some tall kiddies…but if I wear heels…

  2. Well said…humans have a tendency to walk around in waking sleep…living in maya! Insanity reigns on this planet…when will we wake up and really be alive? Just lovely and cute alien! Perhaps if the aliens attack the world will put down it’s differences and finally unite in peace and harmony…? : >)


  3. Unless it is DIY, I can’t stand reality television shows. They seem to bring out the worst, rather than the best in everyone and everything! Your alien looks like some of the leafcutter bees in my garden have gotten to him! – Happy Thursday, AnnMarie. – Fawn


    • Excellent point, Fawn – the worst – not the best. Maybe someday things will swing around. When we collectively sigh and say enough silliness… πŸ™‚
      Maybe this alien was a leafcutter in a former life πŸ™‚


  4. Ww, I see right into this. Americans are so distracted today with technology and ridiculous television programming that they simply can’t or won’t see the evil ways in which our lives are being dismantled, moment by moment, day to day.
