I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Dumping spies

I got a lot accomplished yesterday - well, for the most part.  There's this little project I'm working on that required a great deal of pondering - I accomplished that on the elliptical.  Forty Minutes of Cardio can work wonders.
Last evening I went to see "The Spy Who Dumped Me."  I thought it was very funny, much better than it's "B" Cinemascore.  Kate is funny, though a bit exhausting in her zaniness.  Mila acts, but the she can, she proved that in "Black Swan."  Justin Theroux is in it - he gets 3rd billing.  Evidently he did some TV show a while back where he jogged in a pair of sweatpants and a lot of people seem to be using that to judge his star quality.  Believe me, it wasn't evident last night.  His total screen time was... oh... maybe about 15 minutes.  Comedy is not his forte.  I was really delighted to see Jane Curtin, she too can act... and for those who don't know, she really does know how to do comedy.  Perhaps the biggest surprise was a character by the name of Sebastian... played by a Scottish actor.  He had 'and' billing.  That's right, there was the star billing, including Jennifer Aniston's husband, and there was the supporting actor billing, most of whom I don't know, and finally the 'and' billing.  So, after every one else, we got to see 'and Sam Heughan.'

This is from some TV show I've never seen but should evidently watch

He's on screen for at least 40 to 50 minutes and gets 'and' billing.  He can act and he's played comedy well.  So, why did he only get 'and' billing?  Probably because he was smart enough not to marry Jennifer Aniston.  
Anyway, I'm off to my brothers to get walnuts.  He just sent me a text;  'bring gloves and boots.'  Hoping to get about 33 quarts.  I may try planting some these again.


  1. I'd like to be the meat in a Justin-Sam sammich.

  2. My book club friend Marian is obsessed with the Outlander books, mostly because of Sam. We watch the show at her house and she gets mad if an episode doesn't have sex scenes with him!! The first season has lots of sex just FYI.

    1. Thanks!! That made me laugh. Guess I'll have to watch Season 1
