For those who are wondering, I did go to work yesterday. The roads were dry and the temps increased to a balmy 74 (F) when I punched out around 7 PM. Three customers showed up about 10 minutes before I left wanting blinds cut. I let my associate cut them because mentally I had already punched out for the day. This is what happens to our minds when we know we have 3 days off in a row.
As I said, when I left the temps were nearly above freezing, however the wind picked up and they plummeted. Today our high is supposed to hit a chilly 29 (F), and tonight? We're dropping down into the teens.
I am going to have to hit my neighborhood Giant supermarket today... or tomorrow.
There was an article in the NYT about Hollywood and Award Season. November and December are the two months during which the heavy hitting dramas are released, those the studios are hoping will take home awards. The Operative Word here is drama. This year, dramas faired horrifically at the box office and Hollywood is in a tizzy because... well, they've always turned their collective noses up at anything that wasn't a drama. What did people brave the theaters for this year? Science Fiction, Adventure, Super Heroes. You would have thought some smarty pants studio exec would have realized that during a pandemic most people don't want to exchange the drama of life for the fictional drama of a movie. Now there are a boatload of soul wrenching dramas waiting to be nominated that no one has an intention of seeing. Ouch. Maybe now they'll put that drama stick out of their but and begin to award films that people enjoy, rather than films that pet their dramatic ego.
And, speaking of little films, here's a little cutie I put together on the spur of the moment. Enjoy.
I see where people are upset because Jim Jordan's running for a third term. He said, way back when, that he was only going to run for 2 terms in Congress. Now, because he's decided to run for a 3rd term, people are calling him a liar. Hell, he's always been a liar. Didn't they know that?
