random musings #53  
- Am I the only cold-hearted witch that doesn’t feel sorry for the “victims” of the Madoff fiasco? At some point I read an article in the NY Times that talked about how many people didn’t invest their money with him because they thought it all sounded too good to be true. I’m also not sure that a sentence of 150 years fits the crime. All I know is that keeping my life savings ($250) in a sock under my mattress has worked really well for me and I’m certain will continue to be my best option.

- I’ve been lobbying hard around my house for someone to buy me a convertible for my birthday. I first enlisted Ella in my crusade by saying “Hey, Ella, tell Daddy to buy me a convertible for my birthday!” You know what that little rat fink said? “No. It’s too expensive.” Obviously, Craig was heading me off at the pass. Ella has gotten into the spirit, though. Every time we see a convertible she yells “There’s your car, Mama!” regardless of whether it’s an awesome convertible Mini-Cooper or a 1982 Chrysler LeBaron. Side note: I am not getting a convertible for my birthday, but a girl can dream right? And a girl can put it on her Life List (see below).

- Coming soon to Lisa Says: My Life List, inspired by Mighty Girl who just announced that some of her Life List is being sponsored by Intel. Crazy awesome!

-Craig mentioned that if they turned Neverland Ranch into something like Graceland, he would pay $20 to visit. I’m not sure what’s more disturbing: A) That he thinks it would only cost $20 or B) That he’s thought long and hard about it and yes, yes he would like to visit Neverland Ranch. I responded by saying that I thought all the awesome crap was just sold so what’s the point in visiting it now? I visited Graceland a few years ago and I loved it. And yes, Elvis is alive. He’s kicking it sequined glove-style with Michael Jackson! Hee-heee!

- What are you reading this summer? I'm trying to get my hands on Stieg Larsson's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" trilogy. I also want to read "Sag Harbor" by Colson Whitehead, Sarah Waters' "The Little Stranger" and "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell. I love summer reading!
