I don’t know about you, but I could use a little levity right now. That’s why I laughed so hard when I came across this cartoon my parents sent me.

I tried to find the artist’s name to give credit where credit is due, but I didn’t have any luck. Do you know who it is? And in the meantime, to the unnamed artist, thank you!

Bill says, “Remember to dress festively this holiday season.” It’s either that or, “I can’t believe they’re making me wear this stupid outfit. They owe me a lot of tuna for this.”

Enjoy this chuckle, courtesy of a Traveling Light reader:

I was visiting my son and daughter-in-law last night when I asked if I could borrow a newspaper.

“This is the 21st century, old woman,” he said. “We don’t waste money on newspapers. Here, you can borrow my iPad.”
 
. . . . I can tell you, that fly never knew what hit it…

Louvre MuseumI don’t think I’ve ever included a joke in my Friday musings, but this one had me laughing so hard I just had to share it. It’s called The Price of Gas in France.

A thief in Paris decided to steal some paintings from the Louvre. After careful planning, he stole the paintings, got past security, and made it safely to his van. However, he was captured only two blocks away when the van ran out of gas.

When asked how he could mastermind this seemingly impossible crime and then make such an obvious error, he answered, “But, Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings. I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh.”

See if you have De Gaulle to tell this joke to someone else. After all, what have you got Toulouse?

Thought Leadership Symposium for Women

March 12th, 2012 Jennifer Selby Long Posted in Just For Fun No Comments »

 

That’s me in a rare Introverted moment, peeking out from behind the intellectual powerhouse Riane Eisler. When this photo was taken, the multi-talented author and researcher had just spoken at Roberta Guise’s Thought Leadership Symposium for Women.

We also had the opportunity to get direct coaching on PR to spread our thinking to a much larger audience, a top literary agent, a successful blogger and self-published author, and an expert on handling the rejection and attacks that thought leaders (particularly female thought leaders) are bound to experience.

Best of all, I had two and a half days completely dedicated to improving my thought leadership in the company of other women with similar goals, and we’ll have an hour together each month for a full year. If Roberta decides to offer the symposium again, Traveling Light readers will be the first to know.

That’s quite a flattering and romantic picture of us, don’t you think? Kirk and I are displaying our split personalities in a funhouse mirror from Playland at the Beach, a special exhibit at the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers. We were utterly charmed by this exhibit, which includes a clever miniature Playland complete with model train. The exhibit continues through April 15.
