Mine was great and is technically still going. I had a nice visit with family on Friday and Saturday, and I took off work today too because I know how to plan ahead.
Friday I was going to go out for a couple of drinks with my landlord — we’ve been saying we’ll do this for years, it’s almost a gag — but he pulled the plug when I mentioned I’d be good for “maybe two drinks” — he wanted a great many more. That made me a little sad for both of us, and the world, but oy.
Saturday I wrote. I’m not sure it was great stuff but there was a lot of it, which is good.
Sunday my kitchen drain clogged to a point where today I need to buy a wrench. I finally watched the movie Jacob’s Ladder (1990) and guess what, it was not worth the wait. Then work called and I end up making seven hours of overtime instead of writing more. So that’s good and bad.
Today the pinky on my right hand is tingling like it is asleep and it has been doing this for three hours. If any of you is secretly a doctor, please tell me it’s nothing serious. Otherwise I’ll go on WebMD and end up convinced I’m at death’s door. Thanks.
Your landlord decided no drinks was better than two drinks?

I managed to get out of Seattle before the Great Plane Heist of SEATAC 2018. Saturday I languished at a social gathering filled with children. Yesterday I had a great two-hour tennis match with some friends I used to play with all the time but hadn’t seen in a long while, so that was a nice reunion.
I’m supposed to be in the final stage of all my dental work, just two fillings left, but one of the molars I had a root canal/crown on last year is in a lot of pain so I’m totally freaking out. I’m still making payments on that work, I can’t pay for another root canal on the same tooth! How badly do I really need these molars anyhow?
Yeah so, still sick, but the fun part is watching all three seasons of Penny Dreadful (a few more episodes left) which I’ve enjoyed tremendously. Also playing a lot of an old-timey computer game called Zeus. I’ve made so much soup. I can’t taste it, but it’s soothing.
Dumb germs! Do you need more binge recommendations? I’m almost through with Covert Affairs (on Amazon Prime streaming) and I love it. Also on Amazon: Burn Notice (for a fun action show), and Frasier (comedy classic). Happy Endings, Younger, The Bold Type on Hulu. Mind Hunter, Travelers, Halt and Catch Fire, Limitless on Netflix.
Thank you! I finished Penny Dreadful last night, it was so good. Great characters. I watched Halt and Catch Fire which I loved. I’ll check out Covert Affairs and some of the others you mentioned. I always need recs. 🙂
Last night I gave Orville a shot. It’s a blend of awful (I mean, there’s a space battle that’s too goofy to be tense and everyone keeps making dumb wisecracks about farts and stuff) but first episodes are usually rough, so… I’ll keep going. I have to say, it does scratch the itch I was feeling for a sci-fi series that is a bright and well-lit hang-out with cool heroes. Lately sci-fi tends to be a grungy mess played out in the moral gray areas of the trust-no-one universe. Don’t get me wrong, Orville is bad and I am ashamed! But I’ll keep you posted.
I somehow haven’t heard of Orville. Somehow knowing you’re ashamed for watching it makes me want to check it out 🙂 I agree about current sci-fi; it’s all dystopian worlds with antiheroes and it does get old.
I miss Penny Dreadful!
