Well, my weekend has arrived. The weather is overcast, with temps expected to rise into the mid 60's (F), which is the sign that spring is approaching. Today is also a palindrome, meaning there is no difference if your read it frontwards or backwards. 2/22/22. If I were a card player, I'd have to say that deuces are wild. If you don't believe, check out what's happening in the world.
I got around to watching "Being the Ricardos" last evening. I was impressed with Nicole Kidman, and can see why she got an Oscar nomination. Javier Bardam? Sadly, he was no Desi Arnaz. Desi was a fine-boned pretty boy, Javier is not. I felt the political bit of back story used to hold the film together was unnecessary. The tale of Lucy and Ricky is more than fascinating on its own. Interestingly enough, there's no mention of how they purchased RKO, a studio which terminated Lucy's contract when she was 39 because they saw her as too old. Because of this, there isn't even a footnote regarding the fact that it was Lucy who greenlighted a little known, sci-fi show called Star Trek.
