Every Outfit Shelley Long Wears in Troop Beverly Hills, Ranked

This is the greatest. I love everything about this list… I love it almost as much as I love the movie.

My fave, obviously, is #18 (number 2 because there is some wonky numbering going on.) The green satin cape? I love a cape.

My other favorites are the other 18, 17, 15, 14, 13, 10, and 5. It’s missing a bead. Good God I love this movie.

This has been something of a rough week for me. I have tried to stay away from posting negativity and sadness. I have tried to ignore the nagging feelings in my heart. I have honestly walked away from the Internet and television news as much as possible. I can only work so hard to be all sunshine and roses. Life goes on, but things very much change within our hearts.

I am angry about what is happening in Ferguson. I am sad over the death of Robin Williams. I can’t believe we are still involved in this fucked up situation in Iraq. I can’t believe I am looking out my window at work, watching the grieving family of an Army General who was killed in Afghanistan. I hate the way things are today. 

I feel very lost about certain things. I have a lot of joy in my life and the sadness and anger and hurt don’t dim that. But I look around a lot of the time and think I am pretty helpless. When fighting these huge things that make me so sad, I feel pretty helpless. So, I choose the things I can make a difference in.

All this is to say, we all come at these things a different way. I watched a Facebook post on a wounded warrior spouse’s wall yesterday devolve into accusations and hurt feelings and, eventually, telling people that what they do doesn’t matter. But when we think the best of people and we hope for a future with more compassion then hate, I’m going to try to live that.

I really hope Peyton and Eli are getting paid a lot of money for that new Direct TV commercial.

orioles:

Thank you, #Birdland for making our 60th Anniversary Celebration so special. #Orioles60

I spent more hours in the car getting to and leaving this game then I did in my office today, and yet, really fun night. But seriously, who invited 40,000 fans to a 60th Anniversary game when there are 30,000 super excited Anime fans across the street? I have never been in such a clusterfuck of traffic in my life. And I go to the US Open every year. I did get some good pictures of the weird costumes while stuck in traffic though.
