My son just got his first college acceptance today!

Get this: The University of Mary Washington, a decent school, and a safety for him, came to his high school to do interviews, and the deal was, they would tell you on the spot at the interview if you were in or not. So we just got a text from him that he's in.

No details on financial aid or anything like that, so I guess the paperwork is still coming, but my baby is off to college!

I would ask what you mean, but you probably don't know.

Okay but to be fair, those clothes are often given freely to celebrities so they can act as a walking advertisement. Anyone nominated for an Oscar gets a gift bag of designer merchandise worth six figures.

The people you want to scoff at are the rich-but-not-famous who spend this kind of cash because they want to be just like the celebrities.

That's true, otherwise the picture would not have been captioned with all that information. I had to copy the caption information over because the caption was unreadable when shrunk to the acceptable width for posting here.

Yes, I wonder about people who buy that stuff. Do they feel they're getting their money's worth? Do they think the public notices or cares? Do they wish the tags were on the outside? Do they know red states buy Wranglers and blue states Levis?

The first public performance of the Oban Brass Quintet is what's making me happy. The awesome power of social meeja found three other crazy brass players of the right instruments within a reasonable distance of our nearest big town to add to Mr Limey and me and we met and rehearsed last Friday and did a public gig (Christmas carols at a food and crafts market) today. It's not about the carols, but about the fact that by great serendipity we like each other and are of approximately the same playing ability and we all want to meet once a month and play stuff.
I'm made up, I truly am.

And brass, apparently.
