What’s happening this week?

I racked my brain for something to care about this week but I can’t think of any fun stories! The whole Deadspin scandal made me think about our dearly departed Videogum but to be honest I don’t fully grasp what happened with Deadspin. Last night I saw Parasite based solely on glowing Twitter reviews that urged people to go see it without reading anything about it first. So I did, and oh boy…It definitely stuck with me, I’ve been thinking about it all day. And that’s all I can say because I don’t want to spoil anyone. Did anyone see Snowpiercer? It’s by the same guy, Bong Joon-ho. But I didn’t see that one so I can’t offer a comparison!

What else is happening this week? I’ve got a lot of work, I’m brushing up on my Spanish, and I need to finalize my plans for Argentina. What are you up to?

    I did see Snowpiercer! It was ok. I think it is also being turned into a TV show, although I don’t know if I would bother with that.

    I’m building a new website for my work, and even though I’m just using a WordPress theme, it’s still challenging to update it with my own information, pictures, menus, etc. I like the challenge, but as per usual, I procrastinated a bit getting started, so now it feels more stressful as I try to finish it. I work better under pressure, but man, I have the worst time management. And it’s been that way for 20+ years.

    I’m not too happy about the time change and cold weather. But today was sunny, and at this point, as long as there is sun and/or no snow, I will try not to complain.

    I am also looking forward to the annual Jimmy Kimmel bit – “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy.”

        Aw poor kids. The parents of the couple who were nice about it must feel pretty smug. I don’t understand the ones who start crying immediately because I don’t think I would have processed that information so quickly. I would have had a lot of follow up questions.

    I watched the Paul Rudd Netflix show and I really enjoyed it! I liked that it delved a little deeper into his wife’s character so she got to be a full person, not just “exasperated wife.” And Paul Rudd is a perfect, ageless person. It sent me down a rabbit hole of Paul Rudd YouTube videos and every one was worth my time.

    I spent last week in Atlanta and DC, two places that I like hanging out in and HATE driving in. I’m thinking about my moving options for the next few years and those two are places with good career prospects but I feel the driving and expensive housing would lead to poor mental health…something I’ve been pondering the last few days. Why can’t we all just work remotely and live in a reasonably priced mid-sized city like Pittsburgh or something?
