I hope everybody had a nice, relaxing Christmas, that everybody stayed safe and warm inside their homes as frigid cold from Canada bombed America. We did have single digit temps here on Saturday, the 24th, but no snow. Yesterday things began to warm up, temps climbed into the low 20s (F). Today they're predicted to reach 30 (F), and by Wednesday we should be a balmy 52 (F).
Here in Central Pa, Christmas day was quiet. There was ham, corn, and mashed potatoes... lots of ham, that will be eaten as sandwiches and turned into ham salad. Some will be frozen. The dogs will have the juicy fat served up to them with their dinners this evening.
Oh, and Biggie and Lilly got cake and ice cream. The dainty, lady Lily took her time, licking her ice cream the way you do an ice cream cone. Biggie, who's head is the size of a personal watermelon, swallows things whole. For him, it's not about the taste, it's about the consumption.
I watched Glass Onion, a Knives Out mystery on Netflix. It was only released into around 700 theaters back in November, and only for a week or so before Netflix pulled it. Reviews were middling. I didn't like it. Not one bit. This was more of a bomb than a hit. In Knives Out, Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) ask questions to solve the mystery, in Glass Onion rather than deduce, he makes statements; he tells the audience what they saw using different camera angles. By the time the ending comes along, he is no longer the star of the movie, that honor goes to Janelle Monae. I don't know about you, but I like it when my mysteries have a brain.
Once again the people of Texas were freezing but Greg Abbott is pulling a publicity stunt. Sorry, Texas, not sorry; you voted him back in.ReplyDelete
Also not sorry for QAnonKari. She got what she deserved.
Kari's a laughingstock. Abbott? He is everything the white, Texas Republican wants.Delete
If Abbott were to actually run for President and actually win I might be provoked to do something really stupid and dangerous. Hey, I'm and old man, what have I got to loose?ReplyDelete
Hey, if he runs for president and gets the nomination? Go for it! 😎😎😎Delete
Completely agree with your review of Glass Onion. Lame attempts at cutesy hip references, and poor dialog. The actors didn’t stand a chance at looking good, and Craig’s (intentionally?) phony Southern accent was immediately tiresome. Janelle was the only interesting actor but she was surrounded by sorryness. What a waste. The Orange Anus is running out of words to tweet. I’m waiting for the top of his head to fly off. Abbott should be locked away, nay, parked outside in freezing weather. He has no soul.ReplyDelete
The whole movie felt like one of those pretentious private jokes only a few select people are laughing at. As for Trump? I wouldn't be surprised if the first indictment doesn't drop the day before the new Congress is sworn in.Delete
I'm glad you had a good Christmas, but cake and ice cream for those puppies??? Seriously, you do spoil them (can't say I blame you though)!ReplyDelete
They always get cake and ice cream when one of them has a birthday, and they are spoiled. Even when I was younger, I disliked going to big, family fetes on the holidays, now that I'm older I have an excuse not to go.😎😎😎Delete
