Last Sunday I threw myself an enormous pity party: table for one, face down on the bed, enough Radiohead filtering through the speakers to convince anyone to taste steel, shoved coldly against their back molars.

I don’t have a resume, really, but if I did, under ‘other talents’ I guess I’d write ‘tell jokes and ride horses.’ But after just emceeing another fashion show benefit, I realize I have another ‘gift,’ if you will:

I can spot a fellow farm hand from across the room.

Quite a nice gesture was made to me a couple of weeks ago from a fellow classmate who had, of all things, found and purchased a woman’s high school ring on E-bay and wondered if it were mine.

While I’m grateful not to have lost power and am sorry for those who did, it’s a wee bit irritating to prepare for the worst case weather scenario that was being played out on the local news, and receive just enough ice and snow to make friends of mine in New England scoff and send me a deluge of photos showing themselves standing next to Berlin

There are those that say, with some validation, that social media, particularly Facebook, is notoriously narcissistic: “it’s all about me, me, me- my fabulous children, our amazing skiing trip to Aspen, my wonderful husband, our agonizing choice between the Benz and the Beemer!”
