Baristas, gargoyles, and beautiful blooms … #ladygaga #oscars2022

I’m such a dork but it brings me great pleasure to have one of my tweets quoted in a silly pop culture piece like this: https://uproxx.com/media/lady-gaga-switched-baristas-avoid-caitlyn-jenner-malibu-starbucks/ 😅

It took me about a month, but all of my mom Susie Sexton’s writing is now in one place: https://misunderstoodgargoyles.com!

I told you she was prolific, and I’m amazed the posts worked out to be 500 (!) entries even.

If I had it to do over, I probably would have organized the site a little differently. All of the Talk of the Town Whitley County and The Post and Mail columns that she worked so diligently on were posted first, then her editorials, and finally her more wide-ranging Goodreads blog entries: carefully crafted show tunes versus free-spirited jazz riffs.

One could argue, though, that those Goodreads blog entries were closest to her soul; those were where she expressed her fiercest critiques of sexism, ageism, intolerance, and animal abuse.

But now it’s all in one place, hopefully for readers to continue to discover her unique voice for years to come!

Thank you, Lauren Swearengen, for this lovely and heartfelt surprise. You made my day. Grateful for your friendship, heart, and kindness. Love you, sweet soul!

#LMA22 … I know as human beings we tend to take more photos of the fun and silly moments and the moments of authentic connection, and those were plentiful. And much needed.

But there was so much substance, so much growth, and so much value achieved this week. energizing and thought-provoking, and I know our 850 attendees will bring so much value back to their organizations from this experience. The curriculum was deep and thoughtful and beautifully executed. And I myself was part of many robust conversations as people unpacked the ideas and concepts they explored. Enjoy these images of one incredible week: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10224716694763670&type=3

Thank you again, Passle #LMA22 kids, for this hysterical, delightful, and slightly horrifying “Roy pillow/voodoo doll”. I’m looking at YOU, chief of shenanigans Will Eke and your co-conspirators James Barclay , Connor Kinnear , Cam Dobinson , Alistair Bone , Edward Lovatt , Eugene McCormick , Sam Page , Sarah Strachan , Tom Elgar , Jennifer Green.

“Broyda” – as Brenda Plowman and I dubbed the dolly at Tuesday night’s neon soirée – is safely ensconced between a Wizard of Oz Winged Monkey and one of my many Passle octopi. As one would. He did get a wee bath as Kourtney Goebel baptized him with a glass of wine that same evening. 😅🍷. But he’s good as new, if slightly tipsy still.

And now he is all tucked in and right at home. Although mischievous pup 🐶 Hudson is eyeballing him mightily. That might not bode well … 🤣

Love you all, and thank you for becoming such a vibrant and essential part of our Legal Marketing Association – LMA International community. Your support, camaraderie, insight, and fun are greatly appreciated. It’s like we’ve all known each other for years in all the best ways!
