Rumpole: A new voice emerged over the Thanksgiving holiday. A reader who claims to be a young woman who works in the REGJB.
We haven't reached an agreement on her unfettered access to the blog, but for the moment, call it on a temporary basis, we are letting her blog. Her nom du blog is Millennial Me. #letthegirlblog indeed.
YEA! It's me. Millennial Me. A blogger. Wait until Mom and Dad read this!
It's Sunday, which means lets keep this light. I have definite thoughts on lots of issues that affect us all. But for today let me say this:
It won't be pretty in Foxborough for our home town eleven. The Patriots are going to beat our Dolphins like a Revolutionary snare drum.
I don't watch a lot of television, (as a true millennial I have cut the cable cord and just watch my shows on Netflix, Amazon and Hulu. But mostly I read and listen to podcasts) but here are the top five shows of all time:
4) The Wire
2) Mad Men
1) Breaking Bad
Belongs in the top five but couldn't be squeezed in: All In The Family and The Walking Dead. Both ground breaking in their own right.
Marvel vs. D.C? D.C wins. Batman. Superman. Wonder woman. Flash. Arrow.
I do love Spiderman and that's Marvel. But D.C wins.
(Yes, I am a nerd).
Reading about the solution to Fermat's last theorem is an all weekend affair that will keep anyone who loves a good math mystery interested. Check out the books by Simon Singh and Amir Aczel.
I recently went to Amoeba music in Berkeley, California and it was a life-changing experience. I'm going to soon become all about the vinyl. Although on a State salary, I need to move slowly.
I feel like there will be pressure for me to talk about being a single girl in Miami. But I wonder if I was male would people be interested in my looks and dating life?
When I arrived in Miami I tried, I really tried to get by without a car. Bus service sucked. The metrorail doesn't cover this town at all- like for example Aventura (the Mall (dreamy heart signs that I want Rumpole to put in) ) and Uber/Lyft at 20 bucks a day is more expensive than a car. So I gave in and bought a nice used one. But the lack of public transportation makes Miami much less attractive than Boston, NY, or Chicago. My guess is my next stop is a law firm in Boston in another two years.
iPhone X. iPhone 8. A thousand bucks!! I wish. (If mom and dad are reading, and christmas is coming...please?? I can go halfsies).
Want to chat? Give me ideas to blog about? Millennialme786@gmail.
Oh.. and thank you Rumpole the great one. You were my true hero until we exchanged testy emails. But even after your crankiness I still, kinda like you. (Kiss on the cheek).
