Rachel Rogers Correspondence

Letter from the Editor.

About 10am every morning I do a little check in with myself: "Am I being the best me I can be?" Regardless of my answer, I make no adjustments because even the worst version of Rachel is still pretty incredible.

How is everyone else feeling about themselves today? Anyone planning on shopping at the Centralia Outlets today? I think my aunt may be stopping through. Great place to get a Jansport backpack in the year 2002.

My grandpa celebrated his 94th birthday last weekend! Can you believe it? What a cool guy. He told us his earliest memory from age 2.

I tried to go paddle boarding at Lacamas Lake only to find out the water has too many toxic algae blooms for a good time. So I took myself back to the Tualatin River this week after work. And would you believe it I told you I ran into people I knew out on the water at 6:45pm on a Monday? One group I ran into were there based on my recommendation to them of places to go paddle boarding. The other person I saw was maybe a high school teacher that I knew but never had a class with. I didn't actually say hi. I was pretty busy distracting myself by looking at a kingfisher.

My sister is on her honeymoon, so I've been watering her plants and watching Snapchat videos of my brother-in-law petting donkeys on a donkey farm.

I've been trying to be in my bed by 10:30pm every night. Some nights I'm pretty successful and the other night I was in bed by 10:30pm but stayed up late reading about telescopes and planets' orbits.

I think that I would never be able to discover telescopes, orbits, speeds of lights, or clock mechanics and am pretty excited other people did.

Once a week at our marketing department meetings, we ask a get-to-know-you question. The question this week was: who is your celebrity doppelganger? At the time I said I didn't have one, which is mostly true. But one kid taking the SAT told me I looked like Kari, the babysitter from The Incredibles. 

My coworkers and I downloaded an app that told me I either look like Joseph Gordon-Levitt or Shakira. I'd say I look like neither! But it was accurate in saying my dog doppelganger is a Yorkshire Terrier. 

Do you all have celebrity doppelgangers? Probably.

One time I drove my friend's cousin's boyfriend/husband on New Year's Eve. He looked more like Harry Potter than Daniel Radcliffe. Every time I looked in the review mirror, there he was...Harry Potter.

Maybe it's better not to look like the spitting image of someone else.

Those are all the updates I'm willing to share. Au Revoir!

Bless You?
Sneezy season is back! Trees are shedding once again which spells out trouble for my allergy-ridden friends. Many of my sneezers out there wisely carry tissues on them. But when you start to think about it, tissues are made from trees--the same thing making you sneeze. Really makes you think.


Many of us are dying to figure out who our celebrity look-alike is. Which of your favorite television/music/internet stars could someone maybe mistake you for if they squinted their eyes from a few feet away?? Well, wonder a little less longer with the Celebs app. I used the Celebs app to find a definitive answer as to who my celeb doppelganger is. Using this app, I was also able to reveal which dog breed I look most like. Don't you want a cool smart phone app like that? The Celebs app offers a free 3-day trial if you purchase now in the app store. But I wouldn't be surprised if this app was selling all your information to aliens or something. Be careful.
The Man from Waco
As favor would have it, I learned about Charley Crockett this week. The gods of Twitter were shining down on me when I happened upon this article about The Man from Waco, Crockett's newest album. Listening to this album is like hearing an old familiar song for the first time. Crockett is a true folk artist and his songs are rooted in western, blues, and R&B. I once heard someone describe listening to John Prine's music like eating steak and potatoes and Crockett's style is the same simple and honest steak and potatoes as many of the great folk artists before him. If you are interested in listening to good music, this is your album.
After a multi-year hiatus from Hi-Chew, I am back. I ate a Hi-Chew at work the other day and it was exciting. Hi-Chews are fun to have once every few years, especially if you are interested in a gum-candy hybrid. I wouldn't go out of my way for Hi-Chew. I do like the mango flavor but would still rank the candy below an actual mango. Speaking of, I need to go check and see if the mango I bought at the store two nights ago is ripe yet.
