As I mentioned before, I went to Colorado just a few weeks ago. I always have paperwork to keep me occupied on the plane. Also, I bring both my current audible mystery and my “real book” mystery with me. (This time I had my current Monica Ferris “real book” and my Alexander McCall Smith audible book.) But, as usual, even though I have plenty of things to keep me busy, I looked through Southwest Airlines’ monthly magazine.
Being the Easter month, the magazine’s focus was on the “Still Incredible” egg. (Remember the old television ads: “The incredible, edible egg.”?) Although I wasn’t at all interested in finding out more about eggs, here’s a glimpse of what I found interesting in the magazine:
1) Hmmm… Do blond-haired women really earn 7% more money than non-blond women, or were all 20,000 of the USA women who Australia’s Queensland University of Technology studied successful actresses, models, and other entertainment-oriented professionals? (Don’t even get me started on our society’s idiotic monetary measure of what entertainment professions are worth!)
2) Did Kellogg cereal’s founder really invent peanut butter?
3) Adam Hunter makes some interesting points >>> Our society is surely becoming less social! When was the last time you watched a movie in a theater with friends VS at home, possibly in your pajamas?
4) The Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery is giving Hooters a run for their money >>> even with the substantial savings in fabric for their “very healthy looking” waitresses’ uniforms!
5) Yipee! Flying so early in the month means that all four of the Sudoku puzzles are empty and available!
6.) How neat is this? A “What’s wrong with this picture?” called “Hogwarts Shuffle” – beautifully illustrated by JJ Rudisill. Something for children whose parents didn’t pack a fun “to do at airport & on plane” backpack. I sure am glad I have mine!
