When you hit middle age you really only have two choices: you can get fat and lazy until you roll over and die, or you can can get off your ass and do something, like maybe ride a bike.
I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Well, yesterday turned out to be a do nothing sort of day. I did do laundry and some yardwork, but not much. This is what usually happens when I stay up late watching movies. These old bones aren't used to my burning the midnight oil. On the plus side, the dogs and I took a nice, long nap yesterday afternoon.
So, what other films did I watch on Tuesday night. Well, of course one of the was X - the Unknown, and the other was a remastered Blu-ray of Help, a very old Beatles movie. Help was an extremely popular movie, one of very few films I saw twice in a movie theater, but from my understanding was not a lot of fun for the Beatles. Life was becoming very complicated for the most popular band in the world and neither the world, nor the Beatles were ready for it. Here's the only full length trailer I could find.
I ordered a new printer. The 13-year-old HP laser printer downstairs doesn't handle Windows 11, even though I updated the drivers. My laptop, still Windows 10, had serious issues printing to it last fall that were so bad I worked with Microsoft to try and fix them, it would only print 'current page.' Back when I purchased it, I remember the salesclerk telling me that printers had gotten so inexpensive, when they went bad, people simply upgraded.
And, of course, tonight is the night the January 6 committee goes prime time, sans Fox, and Fox is scared. Laura Ingraham spit out some sort of nonsense saying the network 'caters to their audience.' Doesn't she admit that's an admission of guilt? Republicans are scared. Rubio spit out the broken record comment "no one is going to watch," thought I don't doubt for a second what he's saying is true those who supported the insurrection. They are terrified because this hearing is going to be everywhere... except Fox, which is not good for that entertainment network.
And Tonight is just going to be the beginning. True, there will be MAGAs that will call these hearings lies. There are Evangelicals who will deny everything, since the truth will mean that... well, they will never admit that God didn't choose Donald Trump to give them what they want, that would be a denial of their faith. Tonight will not go well for either of these groups. In fact, for some it might be the beginning of the end.
OMG so right!ReplyDelete
At work sometimes they just replace the printers when they start failing. And printer ink is EXPENSIVE. I usually send things to the mailroom where a huge printer takes care of all my needs.
And you just KNOW the MAGAts are gonna go in damage control mode the second the hearings start. Faux News will not touch them unless is to gaslight their audience (which is not news for anybody with a brain). I hope they drag the Repugs for filth. I'll be watching.
And Help is an awesome movie. The manfriend is a Beatles maniac and I've watched it twice now.
From what I've been seeing on social media, the Republicans are scared shitless... oh, and so is Fox.Delete
Printers really aren't expensive any more but damn, the price of ink!!!ReplyDelete
I usually end up buying generic toner cartridges.Delete
I sure hope it is the beginning of the end for some of those turds. Hopefully they haven't done enough damage that we can bounce back from.ReplyDelete
The damage they have done is to the Republican Party which at one point in time was far more Centrist and open to compromise.Delete
Fox is shitting their panties.ReplyDelete
I'm betting there is already a list of heads that are going to be rolling.Delete
Scott Perry is already belly aching about the hearings. What a cowardly shack of shit. If they aren't gulity...then they shouldn't have anything to worry about. Or have a gulity conscience.ReplyDelete
I did like the bit where they said he asked Trump for a pardon. Stay tuned!Delete
