And so my weekend begins... with UGI digging up the street in front of my house. Neighbors on the other side of the street are switching to Natural Gas, much less expensive in Central PA than oil. I can still get out of my driveway should I need to, though garbage collection is going to be set back a day.
Since I have Disney + thanks to my new xbox Series S, I watched Hamilton last evening. I was surprised by how dynamic the show was. Seeing the cast perform live must be a truly emotional experience. We tend to lionize our fore fathers to a point where we forget they were very human, and their lives were quite often far from perfect.
And so what am I going to do on my first day off? Laundry, of course, I have five piles lining the hallway, each waiting to head into the wash cycle. And after working for 6 days straight, I no doubt will also take a nap. Naps are good. With the dogs of course. As we get older, naps become welcome friends.
There's also the new game on my Series S console. Using the Force is really a lot of fun. In fact, the more you train with the force, the stronger you get. If you're really good with the Force, you don't really need anything else. I know there are some of you who have no interest in games, but here's the release trailer just to give you an idea of how far video games have come.
And as far as the Covid Crisis goes, well, one of the headlines I've seen this morning is that as of this morning, Arkansas only has 8 ICU beds available. There was also some sort of horseshit about the Governor of Louisiana asking people to pray. Someone needs to tell that sucker people have been praying to deities year after year, century after century, to no avail. And then there was this bit about that Losing Governor Abbott of Texas wanting to hire in help from out of state. Oh, and one hospital in Houston is erecting tents for overflow Covid patients. Oh, well, I guess this is the price you're going to have to pay when you sell your soul to Loser #45.
Texas is getting hit hard by untested migrants. Very sad situation I agree.ReplyDelete
Such a shame it's only Republicans being hospitalized.Delete
Ohhh Hamilton was epic. Really.ReplyDelete
And Texas is being hit by stupidity and entitlement. Greg Abbott is trying to out-death Death Santis because that's what Repugs do. He banned masks everywhere and now wants out of state help. Typically Repug. Can't deal with a crisis without asking for outside help.
And Florida is getting ready to blow!Delete
I used to love my "nana naps", but then as soon as I became a nana, impossible! But you really can't beat a nice siesta can you! And thanks for the tip on Hamilton. I haven't seen it and am always on the look-out for recommendations!ReplyDelete
I can't even imagine the impact the show has on the audience.Delete
Funny to see Abbott and Costello, er, DeSantis, begging for help now that they've created this new mess.ReplyDelete
I understand several hospitals are putting up tents to help with patient overflow.Delete
I took an afternoon nap one day over the weekend. I had forgotten how nice it was for an impromptu lay across the bed. It felt wonderful, and one delight I don't do to much.ReplyDelete
What a great way to celebrate a day off, a bit of a repose on a nice comfy bed!Delete
