  1. Looking at Michelle Obama’s portrait, I see something different now. While I don’t feel that her face looks precisely like her own face, which is less typical of portraits, instead I see both of her daughters so clearly, as well as her. It creates this really interesting story that is really quite beautiful.

    Maybe that’s obvious I don’t know. I haven’t read anything about the portraits.

  2. Kat, after reading the article in the Cut about bad bosses, I realise that onley one of the 9 criteria actueally applies to the manageing partner, but I have learned to live with it! I therefore LOVE my boss! The onley 1 thing he does is to make me do thing’s like his Assistant should be doeing, but that is fine b/c he pays me! Funny that that criterian is #1 on the list, but I do NOT mind sealing envelopes or makeing reservations for him or doieng his outlines for the bar association. That is all good, and dad told me NOT to open my mouth about these thing’s b/c Lynn is very touchey since Mason was fired. We must ALL placate our assistant’s, Dad says, b/c they are primma donna’s. While I could say FOOEY, I really have nothing to be annoyed at b/c the manageing partner has secured my future at the firm. My name is on our letterhead now, and soon to be on our firm’s door, when we arrange for the guy to paint it on. So as a 36 year old, I have ALMOST reached all of my goal’s! All I need now is to get MARRIED and have a child or 2 and I will be all set, even if I don’t move to Chapaqua. YAY!!!!!!
