No Go Logo

My favorite part of clothing from the ‘50s and ‘60s is the lack of logos and advertising. It seems that once the Nike swoosh was designed in the early ‘70s to put on their shoes, we were doomed to be walking advertisements for everything from clothing to cars to beer to sports. Not only that, but we had to pay EXTRA to do this advertising for these companies.

This has always annoyed me, so I have tried to select clothing without this annoying "feature". Okay, so I don’t care a whole lot about fashion. My goal has always been to wear something comfortable. Give me the good old Madras plaids, huarache sandals, Keds, home sewn dresses, hip hugger pants, and mini skirts!

To Snooze or Not to Snooze

As a female who’s lived with a man in the house, it’s become annoyingly obvious that a man can be asleep within seconds of his head hitting the pillow while while I often become irritated that I’m not asleep three-quarters of an hour later...even when I’m physically exhausted. During that time, I wonder why.

I’ve heard that females can multitask more issues and make decisions faster than a male, therefore, we are constantly considering issues, making decisions, and planning ahead. It must take more time to shut down these processing systems and let our minds clear for sleep to take over.
