I wish I could see dying stars with my telescope. I have a powerful telescope, but it doesn't even come close to being able to see a dying star.

My little girl is almost 6 months old! She's the cutest thing ever! However, I think I've forgotten what a full night of sleep feels like.

I got my ticket about a week ago! Though, as far as I'm concerned, they aren't even the main act.

I will be posting this sign at my house:

Unless the house is on fire, leave me the hell alone when I'm in the bathroom.

I expect it from the child (who is learning and getting better about it), but the husband should know better. I've been potty trained since the 70s. I got this.

We see you Soror, Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch.

A guest on the Diane Rehm show gave Delta a shoutout and said something to the effect of "...support of her Sisters...they came wearing red."

And so did TIME http://time.com/3685812/loretta-lync...heta-sorority/

*****
I really like Tom Petty. He is wonderful. "Free Falling" is one of my favorite songs. But I guess I have to be a songwriter to see the similarities between Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" and Tom Petty's "Won't Back Down".

I was listening to the radio and they did a side-by-side comparison of the songs by slowing down the Sam Smith song and putting it at the same speed of the Tom Petty song and it is crazy how the Sam Smith song is the exact same song in terms of beats and even words. It was like listening to the same song with different lyrics that started and stopped at the same time. It kind of reminds me of the Vanilla Ice song that David Bowie had issues with. Sam Smith knew he was wrong because he and his people are actually giving Tom Petty credit for writing.

Yes, Sam Smith and his crew are giving them songwriting credit and (if memory serves me correctly) any money and awards will be split 5 ways.

I guess I need to hear "Won't Back Down" slowed down because I don't hear a connection.

The Vanilla Ice and David Bowie thing was much more obvious. Practically anyone could hear that without needing the songs slowed down or sped up. I remember the interview Vanilla Ice did back then when he said the beats are different "that other song goes dundundundddddd...dundundunddddd and mine goes dundundundddddd...chhhh...dundundunddddd...that's not the same thing." Everyone was like

Just like I consider it obvious that Robin Thicke's song was a knockoff of Marvin Gaye's song. Oh well.

Until I heard the Tom Petty song slowed down, I didn't get it. Once I heard it, I was like this:
