It was nearly midnight when IW asked me if I had written up a MFA. I told him I hadn’t because I totally spaced it out. Frustrated, I put down the book I was reading and quickly thought of how I could get out of this. IW hurriedly scrolled through his open tabs, rattling off a topic. I did no such thing, because I already knew what I was going to do: very little.
You see, when the clock strikes 12, especially after my laptop decides to be uncooperative and insists on being a pain in the ass because it wants to update some stupid thing, then takes nearly 30 minutes to do it, I’m not entirely of the right mind to talk about hockey, the results (or lack thereof) of the most recent governors meetings, how Mike Hoffman is still unsigned (good), and how I think it might be time for a change in the front office of the Bruins (we’ll save this for another time). Instead, I have other things I want to talk about.
Hi, I hope your weekend was pleasant and went well. Mine was pretty good, thanks for asking.
Upon Sister’s advice, I watched some of Trixie Mattell and Katya’s movie reactions, which were excellent.
Then, I decided it was time to watch Trixie Mattell in Moving Parts, which was a really good documentary about the man, the drag queen, and the performer. I watched this over two sittings because I had to do some baking prep, dog walking, and baking in between.
Then later on in the evening, while IW was getting his scali bread starter together, I watched the Lizzo episode of David Letterman’s newish interview series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.
I don’t know why I haven’t watched this show. I grew up watching Letterman first on NBC then on CBS. This episode was fabulous because Lizzo is 100% that bitch, if you know what I’m saying. She’s a delightful, multi-talented woman. If you can watch this episode because it’s informative and entertaining.
So, yeah, tomorrow we’ll get back to hockey.
TFW the leaves are falling onto the roof so fast that it sounds like rain…
Morning all. Woke up at 2am to a puking cat so that was fun.
Meant to watch American Utopia this weekend but forgot.
Trixie and Katya are a delight. Their UNHhhh is also excellent and random and wonderful. I still need to order their book.
The line “I feel like I’m looking at your Tinder account” slayed me.
Thanks, GH. No need to talk about what is or is not happening with our team. It’s October. Who talks about hockey in October? (in 2020)
Worked on the house, of course. We had one room’s flooring left to figure out. It had nasty old plywood on it. I started taking a piece out so I could replace with something and found a nice hardwood floor underneath. Tore up the rest of the plywood and there’s my floor. It needs a little repair in a couple spots, but hooray. I have some flooring that matches it, removed from another part of the house. Onto the next problem!
Get ready for the biennial Halloween snow storm… Friday. Expecting snow in Monroe
How strange is life these days? After boating on Thursday, went with my pal to get a burger. He asked if I had a mask….. Yes, I carry two now, in case I lose one. WTF?
I usually have to be reminded to wear pants (Thanks, honey)
Tis the season! There was dusting on the ground this morning!
I was looking at the weather radar and saw that you were getting the wintery mix up there. Too soon!
I got a solicitation from the Steve Bullock for senate campaign yesterday – it showed a woman shovelling fresh snow.
From KFBB, Montana
Yesterday evening the air had that feel of winter out here, but we’ve getting cold rain off & on.
I just looked at the weather for Friday. A high, HIGH, of 37F (2.7C) and snow showers. SNOW SHOWERS! Thankfully, I got a bunch of sweaters in the last week (thanks Target) and recently purchased an anorak so I could have all the comfort, warmth, and pockets to carry everything when I walk BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!mer.
I found some old soap stone hand warmers at the recycling center. You set them on the woodstove for awhile, then put each in a little flannel sack and put them in your jacket pockets. They’re a bit heavy, but they work well and are a great conversation starter…. “Why do you have rocks in your pockets, working out?”
Aw fuck it, I’m staying inside.
My sister used to use one of those when she spent weekends at the local riding stables. Stay hot for ages!
“Hey, want to see my pocket rocks?”
It’s meant to be 16C here on Friday! Rain most of the week though …
