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.

Is Mark Meadows a human slug
And here it is, Thursday. Unless requested off, Thursdays will always be on my schedule. With semi-retirement comes the need for regularity. I am serious. The temptation of idly sitting around wasting hours on the Internet is great. As a result, I have set up my own schedules. Certain chores get performed on certain days of the week. Laundry is Tuesday. Friday, I mow the lawn. If I bake, it's always on Wednesdays. I write during the afternoons I don't work, usually about an hour to an hour and a half, that's enough time for me to pound out 500 - 700 words. This all works well for me.
Last night I went to the movies. It was, for me, a really late show: 8 PM. I was surprised by the number of people in the theater at that hour since this is a work week. The film was R rated, so no kids. Quite often I think studios dumb down movies to get a PG 13 rating. Dialogue is less sharp because 13-year-olds don't have the same vocabulary as adults. The dialogue was edgy last night. Oh, and what movie did I go see? The Black Phone. A drama / thriller with a couple of jump scares. The acting was top notch. This is the best thing Ethan Hawke has done in years. Originally supposed to be released in February, they wisely waited and made this a summer movie.
And, speaking of phones, I was pleased to see that quite a number of people noted how out of the picture Mark Meadows seemed on the days leading up to January 6. Usually, a president's Chief of Staff is also an advisor, an individual the president turns to for an opinion, someone who not only manages the staff but also has the ability to say "hey, prez, that might not be a good idea." I wonder how long it to Mark to realize that Trump didn't really want a Chief of Staff, that he was instead expected to be a combination lapdog, fanboy who submissively did everything he was told to do. I don't doubt that shortly into his tenure he decided to just resign himself and accept that position, after all the job paid well. For those who don't know, Meadows was Trump's 3rd Chief of Staff in less than 4 years, so I'm fairly certain he must have been well aware of his future boss's demands. This, as well as Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony on his indifferent approach to January 6 pretty much prove he's nothing but a human slug... wait, I have to take that back, that's not being very kind to slugs.
Finally, and not surprising in the least, Ginni Thomas has changed her mind. Remember when she said she couldn't wait to sit before the January 6 committee and set the record straight? Now, her attorney is saying that such a sit-down would be irrelevant... oh, and he added that the Thomases are undergoing a lot of stress, death threats, you know? What did Clarence think was going to happen when he chose to help upset the lives of a large majority of Americans? I suspect God never told Clarence or Ginni that their future involved such a shit storm.
Fuck the Thomas's. Drag her fat ass in I say. And Mark Meadows seemed to be as useless as tits on a bull!!!ReplyDelete
Im far from retirement and i still have to have regularity. I like a nice consistent schedule. And that movie sounds and looks rather intresting. I've always enjoyed Ethan's acting.
Meadows is even more useless than that.Delete
The movie is listed as drama / horror, but at times the drama is far more intense than the horror.
I've never understood the need religious people have to shove their ideas down other peoples throats.ReplyDelete
For extremists it's a necessary function of their belief to constantly proselytize.Delete
Meadows must’ve been sedated. He was like a zombie.ReplyDelete
That's what happens when you sell your soul to the spawn of Satan.Delete
The answer is: yes, he is.ReplyDelete
The whole administration was a dumpster fire of greed, indecency, inadequacy and fuckery. Of course Meadows knew Cheeto is a thin-skinned man-child. And he went with it. All of them went with it.
Ginny has changed her mind? Of course she has! Hope they drag her ass to testify. Oh, yes.
And that movie sounds interesting. I love Ethan Hawke. Didn't he do that scary movie about some home movies?
Prepare yourself, this country is going to get very, very messy thanks to Trump.Delete
I totally get the schedule. I need to know what is going on and when I am going to do it or there are going to be problems. I just feel off. Fortunately, Ms. Frizzle keeps me in check by sticking to our schedule of fetch 10 times a day. The Black Phone does look intriguing so I might have to add that one to the list. Thanks, Dave R.ReplyDelete
You might find the movie good but is definitely not kid friendly. Schedules keep us in line.Delete
Someone see where Meadows put his balls .... hint: Thing 45 uses them for putting practice and ... subpoena Ginni's fat ass.ReplyDelete
If Clarence and Ginni are concerned, then maybe they should have thought before shoving their beliefs down America's throat.Delete
