You can have a career, as long as you look good doing it.

Cross-Country Connections is going to be delayed by 24 hours due to extreme slackerdom and holiday-time distractions.  Until its arrival, I offer you a quote from Leslie M. McIntyre:

“Nobody objects to a woman being a good writer or sculptor or geneticist if at the same time she manages to be a good wife, good mother, good-looking, good-tempered, well-groomed and unaggressive.”

Does anybody know anything about Leslie M. McIntyre?  Google is failing me in my brief search; all I can find for “Leslie M. McIntyre” are references to the above quote, or possibly unrelated finds about random people named Leslie M. McIntyre who may have nothing to do with the quote.

In my search I did find this related quote from Gloria Steinem.  Not to worry, dear readers – Google totally knows who Gloria Steinem is.

“I’ve yet to be on a campus where most women weren’t worrying about some aspect of combining marriage, children, and a career. I’ve yet to find one where many men were worrying about the same thing.”

And with that, back to the end-of-year reports and experiments!

      I assume you’re talking about the photo for CCC? ‘sokay. I didn’t get to mine either. Fun of wrapping presents > Drudging through the snow to the place where I want to get my shot.
