Letter meme, via [personal profile] liseuse, who gave me "E."

Something I hate: Elections, lately. Nothing but bad news in Wisconsin, and the ideas our esteemed governor keeps churning out are so absurd that even GOP legislators have been releasing negative statements. I can only hope that some of them will have the gall to stand up and amend some of this crap.

Something I love: Employment? There's the intangible thing of having health care coverage and decent benefits, as well as a good salary. I also love my job. There are so many things to learn, and I'm surrounded by so many intelligent people. I feel engaged, and like I am growing. In the mornings, I am almost always eager to go to work.

Somewhere I've been: Eagle River. A town up in northern Wisconsin. This is one of the places my parents and I would drive when we were Up North for two weeks every summer, when we got bored.

Somewhere I'd like to go: England. I've read so many books taking place there that I feel like I just really should before I die, you know?

Someone I know: There's an E who's a new coworker with whom I get along pretty well. Yesterday she was having heartburn, so I shared one of my papaya enzyme pills, and she was kind of astounded by how well it worked.

A film I like: Ever After. My friends and I watched this so often at sleepovers that I'm pretty confident I could quote the whole thing.

If you would like a letter just ask in the comments!

I haven't seen Ever After in an absolute age, which is a shame because it was such a sleepover film for me and my friends as well.

Letter me!

Eagle River is around 35 miles from my pal's cabin, and we also visit when bored. It's been strange watching a town change from a 1950s style tourist attraction (spaced log cabins with whitewashed chinking, plus a soda fountain in town) to a 2010s style (chain restaurants, way too many cars, wacky traffic schemes to cope with highways through the center of town on an island). But some things remain wonderful: the beautiful tall trees, the eagles, the Chocolate Shoppe ice cream shipped up from Madison, the Czeky Den fair.

What do you do in Eagle River?

Type out a letter for me, please:

I have friends in Bath and in London if you go to England, both are ladies over 50, but quite welcoming and friendly toward most Americans. :-)
