When I think of Margaret Thatcher, it's more about the strides in feminism in the 70s. They weren't all in office at the same time, but there was also Golda Meir, and Indira Gandhi.

And a good time to use my Hillary Icon.

I remember school milk from my Infants school days. Little bottles that held a third of a pint, left next to the exit door in each classroom to create a fire hazard, along with horridly warm milk in summer and blocks of milky ice in winter.

Yesterday I watched Neil Gaimon interview where he mentioned those bottles and how his school friends would use the straw and the bottle to make little Daleks and how this was how he got into Doctor Who.

Aww, that's sweet! I don't recall anyone at school doing the same, despite the fact that my time in the Infants corresponded to Tom Baker's glorious reign.

When I think of Margaret Thatcher I mostly remember the excitement over her election, oddly enough.

I can sort of understand that. I'm not sure I was really aware of her at the time. I think the first mention I remember was when she met Gorbachev and was widely quoted on all the US news shows as saying, "We can work with this man." It was only much later that I found out what a truly terrible person she was.

I remember it as a feminist thing. But I never really found out how awful she was until a couple years ago, maybe a little more. Definitely pre-the movie, but am not entirely sure when it was. I was strangely disappointed to find it out, but definitely not at all surprised.
