Showing Up Late to Pubski

I am visiting PDTime Zone. No, not Parkinson's Disease - Pacific Daylight.

It's raining and I'm holed up in this teeny tiny apartment working on a thing.

Teeny Tiny Apartment

I suppose it's not the tiniest, but it's on a third floor and no balcony. There's a bird feeder hanging outside the window. At first the birds wouldn't visit. They were hunting for seeds on the ground - not three stories up. mivasairski created a pulley system and hung the bird feeder on a flagpole. He put the bird feeder on the ground. Every few days, he'd raise it a few feet and gradually trained the birds to look for food up here. It took less than a week.

I was going to write more, but it took me ages to figure out how to post this picture. Now I have to get to work.

Work

I'm writing a workshop on building confidence. I found some research and a TED talk saying that if you stand in a Wonder Woman pose for two minutes every day, your testosterone would go up and cortisol (stress hormones) would go down. Then I found a pdf on line by the co-author of the research disavowing all of it. So doing this

won't help you build confidence - although doesn't it feel great to stand like that?

I really wish I knew the story behind Wonder Woman's diaper. I mean, here's DC comics 1975.

here's a shot from Miss World, 1975.

Here's a publicity shot from before the show aired.

Yet for the run of the show, they put her in goddamn underoos. I don't know if there's been a less flattering superhero costume. Which censor lost their shit? Which sponsor decided enough turpitude was enough? And why didn't they at least give the poor girl a skirt?

You only get a skirt on Hallowe'en. But I don't know about the third costume... I guess that's for the adult parties.
