With humor, from Kenya

 

During our last day in Kenya, we visited our host Mercy’s sister Rose’s home in Nairobi. Rose organized a lovely luncheon for our gang and invited some of her friends to join so we could get acquainted with some non-Maasai Kenyans.

 

While I was at Rose’s house, I transferred some items between my backpack and my suitcase, apparently losing a precious shopping bag full of jewelry bought at Kazuri Beads, a store run as part of a women’s empowerment project. I was crushed when I got home and realized my purchases hadn’t made the trip with me.

Fortunately Rose found the bag and kindly shipped the jewelry to me via DHL.

 

The jewelry arrived wrapped in newspaper. Somehow one blurb caught my eye.Kenya newspaper

 

 

I will never think of the phrase “Sweet Spot” the same way again. Pervert.

If you’re in the U.S. or Canada and would like to check out Kazuri, here’s the link to their North American site.

Five things to enjoy this Friday

1. This Jimmy Kimmel Live video of celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves. I can’t tell you why this makes me laugh even after repeated viewings. It just does.

2. This pic of my friend’s toddler eating brownies.

3. This quiz about Tim Riggins. Because Tim Riggins.

4. This movie. Yes, Enough Said is poignant given James Gandolfini’s sudden death, but Julia Louis-Dreyfus is amazing and fun.

5. This Aaron Paul video Breaking Boise. I love seeing him have fun with his Breaking Bad fame.

“My new cell phone has text paging”

Excerpt from the end of an email I sent to three of my college friends on February 5, 1999:

My new cell phone has text paging.

If, for some reason, you ever find yourself needing to reach me so desperately (ha, ha!), you can send messages to me at http://www.attws.com/general/msg_center/index.html.

I think I’m a little too connected!

Love,

Jennifer

Had I been able to look into the future to see Twitter, my little mind would have been blown.
