How are you? Can you believe it's February already? In the middle of the month we have Chinese New Year, Valentines, and the Mars landing. Whooweee. A Chinese, a saint, and an astronaut walk into a bar...
Only 40% of Mars landings are successful which is still better than my dating average and the amount of times I've celebrated CNY. Fingers crossed for whoever (they call him Sticky!) will be attempting this epic event on the 18th.
My second newsletter back in 2019 was all about buying my ticket to the Red Planet. Ha! Crazy cakes. [Yes, I was one of those nerds who signed up to have their name sent. Hopefully, the Martians will read those names and protect them... hopefully.] Interestingly, I just finished C.S. Lewis' Out of the Silent Planet which was all about Mars + friends (but without the coffee).
Which reminds me, isn't Tom Cruise supposed to be the first actor sent to space? Oh, Tom! OH, hang on a minute, Russia's not happy about that. Okay, Roscosmos [please read in Russian accent] is looking for Russian woman between ages 25-40 in tip top condition with a desire to beat Tom Cruise to the top. And must have chest girth size up to 112 cm (that's 44 inches, baby).

I love these two portraits by John Singer Sargent. Art critic Robert Hughes (the voice of God) praised Sargent as "the unrivaled recorder of male power and female beauty in a day that, like ours, paid excessive court to both".
Happy happy joy joy,
