Tuesday. This is one of those randomly scheduled days off I've been dealing with for the past couple of weeks. My next consecutive days off, or weekend as some like to call those two days, will not happen until January 26th. I am not excited about having to wait.
Since I am off today, I stayed up and watched episodes 2 and 3 of The Stand. It's entertaining, but some changes have been made. In episode 3 Tom Cullen, a 42 year old mentally challenge man, enters the storyline and his arrival is completely different then in the novel. The mini-series' reliance on flashbacks to tell a majority of the story is a definite weak point. No suspense or tension builds since the good guys are already in Boulder. While being more detailed then the first version telecast way back when, the individual story arcs lack intensity. Ah, well, it is a monster of a book.
As might be expected, the Fallout from the 6th is continuing to grow, or, as many are want to say "this shit's getting deeper." I don't have cable, but when I talked to my sister yesterday, she told me you can't turn it's on every channel. My friend Betsy said that even Court TV is dissecting this evil as though it was some scurrilous rat. Corporations are now beginning to hold their donations from Republicans, and we all know how important money is to them. While this will in no way be permanent, think of this as a temporary assist in getting the far right extremists out of office.
