Bluntness

I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

A Bit About Entertainment

Monday.  The half gallon of ice cream I bought several days ago has been eaten.  Breakfast this morning will be a return to my standard oatmeal.  Healthy eating returns.

Last evening when I got home from work, I found this nestled into the corner of the futon.  Someone large enough and managed to pull it off my sideboard and chew off the top.  The advertising is wrong.  It should read 'irresistible to freshwater fish and 118 lb. boxers.'


Yesterday was so-so at work.  The rain stopped, but the sun didn't come out and the day remained overcast.  Today looks like a Xerox copy of yesterday.  Tomorrow the temps begin to climb.  Wednesday the thermometer is supposed to reach the upper 80's (F).  The temptation will be high to turn on the Central Air.  Gee... I might even open the windows.

And the Oscars were last night.  The Oscar website is saved as a favorite in my Entertainment file (yes, I'm more than a little organized), so I thought I'd watch a few moments on the big screen gaming computer I have.  Nope.  T'was not to be.  Evidently the ruling body of the Academy have seen fit to give ABC all rights for distribution.  Yep, they no longer stream from their website.  You actually need to have a cable subscription now.  Well, son of a bitch!  I got rid of my local channels because I was tired of spending $250 a year to watch 3 shows.  Instead of watching snippets of the ceremony, I ordered an HD antenna for my TV.  I'd had a cheap one, but got rid of it when I signed up for local channels.  My mistake.

Of course, since I had no interest in sitting by my computer watching updates and highlights of the Oscar ceremony, I did the next bestest thing!  Played Assassin's Creed Valhalla.  I love being a blonde, rugged Viking.  Anyway, this game if produced by a French Company called Ubisoft, and this company, as are many others, is moving into other genres of the entertainment genre.  They have a movie coming out this June called 'Werewolves Within,' which looks like a real hoot.  Here's the trailer:

  1. Hahaha oh, doggies. They're sneaky.
    And I did not watch the Oscars. Did learn that the Best Director was Chloé Zhao. About time. Will probably watch highlights on youtube today.
    And that movie looks like it's a hoot! Horror comedies? Yay.

    XOXO

  3. Didn't watch... and don't even know what was up for anything. From what I heard, I though why bother having it. Was it that important? Just come back next year with a big splashy event.

    Thats said I did hear a favorite of mine Emerald Fennel won for Best Screenplay. Love her in The Crown and Call the Midwives.

    1. I don't really need the big splashy even.

  4. I watched. Some fun moments, some favorites won, some hot men, but it was a very subdued affair, of course, given that the US has lost half-a-million people just to COVID since the last Oscars,

    1. I would have liked to see how they were set up in Union Station. This one will go down in the record books for so many reasons.

    1. Yeah, three days and then it's back to spring. I hope it's not foreshadowing a long, hot summer.

  6. Eeww, after your 118lb thief managed to chew that stuff, are you expecting any "little surprises" later? Shit-shovelling I mean?

    1. Honestly, it's more of a problem when he eats paper towels and tissues.
