Rachel Rogers Correspondence

Letter from the Editor.

Welcome to winter. I hope your toes are all warm. I hope you have a blanket that reminds you of Christmas. And I hope you snuggle up under it as you read through this ever-important edition of the Rachel Rogers Newsletter.

Like most days, today was a pretty big day for me. I did release a series of viral tweets around lunchtime. They aren't viral yet but I can only assume they will be soon. I hope the only virus I catch is internet fame. I got my flu shot a bit ago. Do we have news on whether they picked the right type of magic elixir to put in our bodies this year? Guess we'll find out...

I have been in a whirlwind of emotions. Someone in my improv community passed away this week. She was someone I only met twice but it's incredible what kind of hole someone leaves in their community when they are gone. If you reading this, don't underestimate the impact you have on those around you. Now is a great time to call and talk with your loved ones or people you have fallen out of touch with.

But also, do it while staying home.

I stayed home and had a real nice Thanksgiving featuring a chaotic family Zoom. I plan to do the same for Christmas. Things are different this year and that's okay. Besides, I didn't have to try and explain what I do for work again or what improv is at a 30-person family gathering. I needed a year off of explaining things. But I guess I'm explaining about explaining things so maybe I don't hate it as much as I thought.

How did they settle on time?
Someone out there had a favorite number and that number was 24. I assume that guy was in charge of setting the amount of hours in a day. There might be nothing more random than that number being 24. We could have split the day into 7 hours with 40 minutes each. Seconds could have been slower than what they currently are. Really makes you think.

REVIEWS

Ocean's Eleven
Growing up, I assumed this was a movie about the ocean. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Ocean's Eleven...you can see where I got the idea. When I watched Ocean's Eight, I learned they were heist movies. Eleven didn't disappoint. This is a real star-studded movie. And if you know me, you know I love the stars. Stealing from the rich? Fun premise. Stealing your betrothed back? Even more fun!
 
Woods Memorial Park
Some parks have names that don't aptly describe the goings-on of the park. Such is not the case at Woods Memorial Park. The only name better suited for the park would be "One time Rachel Saw a Snake There Park." Woods Mem. is a true nature escape between the suburbs and the bustling I-5 corridor. A creek runs through it and the trails have names like "Little Trail" and "Stairway Trail." Real practical place.
The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special
Very cute. Very funny.
