Nuff said.

Except that, no, this is not related to my fascination with giant puppets.

It isn't the 13th? How odd.
I mean, look, I do realize the World is not going to end. The sun will come up, the world will turn. War is not going to be declared and we are not all going to die and I even expect the banks to be open. Not the collapse of civilization.


And lord knows I am /eager/ to be proven wrong!


Certainly /not/ looking forward to listening to all the talk from people who currently have their eyes and ears covered while yelling "La la la! Can't hezr you!!" when presented with facts.
I did hear tonight "if he dances with Jenner at the ball, he loses my vote!" The bigotry makes me sad, but somehow the possibility that /something/ would be a step too far gives me a glimmer of hope.
Strange times. Hey, China! These times are not "interesting" they are "strange"! You're curse is broken! Strange and sickening.
I sooooooooo want to march. I shall be drinking. A LOT.

I will miss you, Obama [Jan. 19th, 2017|12:19 am]

Dear President Obama,
I want to take this time to thank you. You were a good president. Not great. I won't lie. There were many, many things you didn't accomplish, many you didn't even attempt. But you didn't drop the ball. You pulled us out of dire financial straits. I do remember. You pulled our troops out, as agreed. I do remember. You worked to make regular Americans lives better with job growth and Obamacare. I do remember. You got Bin Ladin and many, many others. I do remember. You carried yourself and this country forward with dignity, love and wisdom. I do remember. You did good. I will remember.
Thank you.

Wild,wild life [Jan. 17th, 2017|08:56 pm]
Mother cried out, "O, a coyote!" I looked out the sunroom window. Just few feet away was "That's a fox!"
A nice, big, healthy, fluffy red fox. Trotting across her yard, broad daylight, right against the house. I suppose i shouldn't worry about the time of day. It seemed healthy and alert enough. Pretty creature. Coyotes are far bigger.

(no subject) [Jan. 17th, 2017|03:35 am]

From time to time, tonight for example, I wonder what ever became of the person who had the London Eye webcam set up in their office. I muse on the What Ifs of our correspondence.
And then my reality side beats my romantic side into a smear and I move along.
I do wish that person well, though.

Sherlock 4 2 [Jan. 12th, 2017|09:19 pm]
Dog. Just saying.

Am going to ponder theories. Keep em coming!

You know, i havent found even one coworker who has even heard of the show. I find this troubling.

Edit to add that i purchased the complete series of Lexx. Ever seen? It is a truly terrible SciFi (spelled correctly) series with a budget lower than original Doctor Who and it was made in Canada so, yes, naked boobs. But it was $10 for silliness and i like the actor who plays the rular of Fire since i saw him in Forever Knight.
I also bought "The Book Of Life" because i thought it looked interesting and it is /not/ by any of the major animation studios and I want to support these new peeps. Make movies! La!

I kinda missed the blond bad guys we used to see in every movie and tv show. :/ It was fun and comforting to see them appear on the screen. "Oh him! Grab the popcorn!" I dont know if we have actors now who make a living being everyones bad guy.

Women March [Jan. 11th, 2017|09:29 pm]
Hrm. Ok, i can't go because my service industry job works weekends, as do nearly ALL minimum wage jobs, of which the majority of employees are women. These women are also far more likely to be working multiple jobs to make up for wage descriminations. Now toss in all the women at any level who are working mothers and cant leave their kids for the weekend. Plus factor in that the majority of caregivers are women and they cant leave home either.
That ANY women show up will be a minor miracle and that is ZERO reflection on the actual /desire/ to be there.

Now excuse me, i have to call congress people.

I really want to post [Jan. 8th, 2017|11:02 pm]
But i cant think of any of the dozen or so things the float around my brain to post when i dont have any access. Unfair!
It snowed. Quite a lot more than forecast. My landlord did not plow until the next day. At 7:30 am... And then he buried my car that i had already dug out twice during the storm. Le sigh.
The shooting in Florida? I don't even care. Havent checked the news. "Another."
Who the ---- is Sherlock texting!? Who could possibly be sharing this sudden schaedenfraud he's developed? Who???
I watched the original "born yesterday". Billie is mesmerizingly beautiful. Trust me.
Also " blazing saddles" and i miss Gene. Also "the awful truth" and, honey, clooney couldnt touch cary grant with nothing. Hell to the No.
My actor i obsess over is doing another stage production and i may skip seeing him this time. What's wrong with this picture?
Oo Man From Uncle! I've been wondering if Thrush had their own versions of Solo and Kuryakin - what would they be like? Would you have liked to see the boys playing against the boys as worthy rivals? I think it could have been fun. What say you? What would they be like?

Ok, maybe i'll get an answer from this week's sherlock...
