An article came out earlier this month describing how Carrie Fisher handled a producer who sexually harassed a friend of hers. It’s pretty amazing. I aspire to have half of her spunk.  You can read the article in the Washington Post here. 


I’ve had zero trick-or-treaters so far. I’m so bummed! First, I could be sleeping. Second, we have fun stuff. Third, I need a distraction from the horror happening in NYC.  Ooh!
