Isn't Amy Pascal the one who made those racist jokes about Obama.

Hi anon, 

Are you asking if the Amy Pascal who will be leaving her position as co-chairwoman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and chairwoman of Sony’s motion picture group is the same Amy Pascal that suggested that Obama might be a fan of the films “Django Unchained,” “The Butler,"and "Think Like a Man,” then yes.

And in keeping with the theme of this blog:

"I'm so sorry to hear that you're leaving your job… at Sony."

– My boss 

Of course, I don’t work at Sony. But the Amy Pascal/Amy Pascale thing has been a source of much amusement for years. Especially when it’s awards show season. 

I’m truly disappointed to hear the news about Amy Pascal leaving Sony – and not just because this will make awards show season less fun & surreal for me. I think she was scapegoated for some really bad security decisions that Sony made, and lambasted for emails wherein she often seemed to be the only sane one in the conversation. I won’t get into the utter dearth of women in high-ranking entertainment executive roles.

…Anyway, that wasn’t even the oddest thing to happen this week. It’s been such a weird week with a lot of random opportunities popping up, actual work being super busy, tons of miscommunication and misinterpretations, TOO MUCH DAMN SNOW, and I’ve got this inconsistent feverish, achy thing going on since Saturday night. I just said to someone that it’s Thursday, but it already feels like it’s Monday.

But I can’t do that! I promised that I’d go to the gym. Then I have to go home and do work. And more work. And not play stupid Marvel Puzzle Quest or Marvel Avengers Alliance, two games that have conspired to own my soul. (Or at the very least, my fingertips.)

I really do wish I had Leslie’s energy and focus. (And I’m sure that this depressive episode isn’t helping anything. And UGH, I WISH TUMBLR WOULD STOP THIS STUPID “UPGRADE” because I don’t need menu bars popping up every time I move the mouse. Maybe I should go get drunk and eat ALL OF THE DESSERTS. The night is still young…
