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.

The Menu, wickedly saucy
Okay, so did the weekend begin on Wednesday evening, or does it start this evening?
For those who don't know, it is Black Friday. Because Friday is one of those days I never work, I'm not working. Today I'm going to pretty much finish painting the new laundry room. Rather than go with a bold, bright color, I'm going with a pastel, a minty green. Accents are going to be taupe and light browns. The trim is a color called Tiramisu, though it's much darker than the desert.
On Wednesday evening, I did go see The Menu with Ralph Fiennes and Nicholas Hoult. What a hoot! So, there's this couple who go to a very expensive exclusive restaurant on an private island for the meal of their lives. The humor is witty and dry. I chuckled most of the way through this satire on the wealthy; each course dissects a lie. It is a little bloody at times. Oh, and if you're one of those people who doesn't like to pay attention, you might want to avoid this film. Personally, I found it quite tasty.
And yesterday was Thanksgiving. I hope everyone of you had a good day, whether with friends, or family, or just quietly trying to keep a hold onto your sanity amid the angst and strum. It was quiet here. The dogs slept. I roasted a turkey breast and made stuffing. Tasty. I finished cutting out the trim in the laundry room. My sister called to fill me in on what I so happily missed at one of the invitations I declined.
Billy B arr wrote in an op-ed published by Business Insider, that if Trump doesn't get the nomination, he will burn down the GOP. Honestly, am I the only one not surprised by this? Of course, this is what the GOP deserves for attempting to turn a narcissist into a demi-god. I personally think he will pretty much tear it to pieces before the party even begins the nomination process. The second his ass gets indicted, Trump is going to start swinging his sledge hammer. Remember Portland, Oregon during the BLM protests? Picture something similar happening in other cities across the the country (mostly down south). And all those Americans horrified by January 6 are going to say 'what the fuck?' And the GOP will rapidly spin into a death spiral. This is how it happens.
There is a book on the horizon that I very much look forward to reading. The title of it will probably be something like THE MAN WHO KILLED THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. And, I want this one in hard copy not as an ebook. I want to save it for posterity.ReplyDelete
Stephen King will have to write it, that title doesn't fit with my series. 😎😎😎Delete
Was not suggesgting it as a new volume for Eli and Max. But I think they and their team could really do a number of the mighty orange one.Delete
Sounds like Barr is back to being a Thing 45 lackey and trying to make sure he gets reelected. Fuck him, too.ReplyDelete
Billy has burned too many bridges. After testifying for the Jan 6 committee and basically calling Trump a liar, he will never be received back. This was seen more as a dire warning to Republicans; they need to do something before he harvests their heads.Delete
I'd like to see The Menu. The previews look good! Even more entertaining than that will be watching Trump destroy the GOP...that's going to be EPIC!ReplyDelete
We had a quiet meal at home with our dogs yesterday, too. I roasted a turkey breast and made dressing and a couple of other simple sides. Store bought pecan pie for dessert. It was a nice day!
Quiet is nice and so much better than conversations forced to constantly circle around subjects which might start a fire.Delete
Oh, how I wish Cheeto could destroy the GOP from inside! Nobody would be more deserving.ReplyDelete
Meanwhile, I kind of love the colors you're gonna use in the laundry room, btw. Accents are always very useful. We'll need photos.
And my one friend went to see The Menu and loved it too! We are planning on going to see Triangle of Sadness too. I love when very rich people get in very compromising situations.
As I said, wait until he gets indicted. The extreme MAGAs and Qs will try and torch everything.Delete
That film looks intriguing (Ralph Fiennes makes a wonderful baddy doesn't he)! And I recognize the "funny looking woman" from The Queen's Gambit - never did finish that series!ReplyDelete
He was a very good baddy who rules with an iron handclap!Delete
