Today was predicted to be warm, low 70s (F) and sunny, well that prediction has changed. Now our temps are only supposed to climb into the upper 60s (F) and there's a 40% chance of rain. Tomorrow the forecast is for a return to more warmly seasonable temps. Notice, I'm saying warmly seasonable. We're almost halfway into autumn and people are already wondering if we're going to have a very mild winter. The fact that we're in the warmest year since they began keeping records, I's say that might be a distinct possibility.
My birthday was relatively quiet. Lily and I had cake and ice cream. I fried up some spam for sandwiches for supper (she loves spam, which is interesting since she isn't Hawaiian).
I've been having some problems playing Starfield. The sound is wonky, and my weapons don't fire. Unfortunately, there are only 5 active game saves making it impossible for me to go back to a previous save and restart the quest. So, I've been in contact with Bethesda Game Studios, which is funny since they're located in Bethesda, Maryland, about and hour a way. For the first time one of their techs suggested that for some reason my game might be corrupted. Damn. He gave me a couple of possible fixes which I'm going to try when I finish this entry.
Part of my birthday fun was going to the movies to see Killers of the Flower Moon. It's long, 3.5 hours. It's very good... except for Leo. I've never been a big fan of De Caprio. Hated him in The Revenant, which I thought was boring as Hell. He's no better in this movie. He frowns through almost the entire movie. He plays Ernest Burkart, not the most intelligent man in town (he has problems reading). At the other end of the scale is Robert DeNiro, whose presence dominates every scene he's in. Anyone who's paid any attention whatsoever to the way Native Americans have been and still are treated, will pretty much know how the story of Osage Indians being murdered is going to unfold, and if it weren't for Leo, this would be a damn good movie.
