well, here we are again

It seems that I am still having trouble thinking of what to write. Or taking the time to write. Or opening up wordpress.

I think about writing. I write posts in my head. Either that or I’m having extended conversations with imaginary friends. But those conversations are kind of silly. Or really silly.

For example, on Chicago Fire last week, the woman former-doctor who just moved in with the fireman and the emt, had a big party and told the fireman not to come. Though he didn’t hear it that way, he thought she was inviting him.

I have several problems with this imaginary scenario. First, you have just moved into an apartment with two people you work with. The first thing you do is to throw a “rager” and tell your roommates, or at least the male one, not to come. Am I the only person who thinks that you ask your roommates if it’s okay with them that you have a party Saturday night? And except maybe if it’s a reunion of your mathletes team, you make them welcome to your party? You don’t just tell your roommate “Hey I’m having a party, go away.” And if there is some valid reason that your roommate shouldn’t come, you make sure you’re clear about why he’s not invited. You don’t just assume that he’s going to figure it out with no clues. Am I the only person who thinks about dumb stuff like this?

I’ve been watching Netflix the past couple days. I’m dropping my subscription at the end of the month. I just don’t watch much on it anymore but I’m checking to see if there is something I want to see. I watched The Tourist, which was entirely predictable. I watched Hancock. I kept meaning to watch it. Now I have. The funny thing is that somehow I had audio descriptions turned on so there was a narrator the entire movie, like Sebastion Cabot in Winnie the Pooh. And I thought it was supposed to be that way. I watched To Wong Fu, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar because it is one of my favorite movies but I don’t own it. Perhaps I will buy it one day.

And I watched Tom Papas. He says we are all doing great, we’re doing the best we can. So what if we’re fat? Everyone is fat. We’re either really fat, kinda fat or trying not to be fat. That about sums up my life.

Snoskred has not posted on her blog either. Pug tells me her area is safe now but they’ve had like 50% of the power out. Her blog is back online so that’s good news, at least. We’re still thinking about you and wishing you and the chooks well.

  1. You are not the only one! I often wish to suggest logical, less painful solutions to unnecessarily complicated scenarios on screen and in books. I try not to do it in real life too, but in my head, many sentences start with, “Why didn’t he just…?” Also, I need to start watching something more interesting than HGTV.

    1. I can’t decide whether much of HGTV makes me laugh or disgusts me. I understand that House Hunters is semi-scripted and they’ve often bought the house they chose before they shoot the show, BUT, watching two idiots fight over every stupid detail of a house drives me nuts. I watch because I like to peek inside other people’s houses and I find myself ranting at them for griping about how badly the house needs updating because it looks too 1990s. Especially if they’re straight out of high school looking for their first house. For the record, my house was built in 1964 and well, the kitchen appliances have been replaced and someone did a bad job putting new tile on the kitchen floor. Otherwise, it’s very 60s ranch and suits me just fine except for the electrical system. Perhaps I could do a go fund me but I have no idea how people manage to get thousands of dollars donated to make a tuna sandwich.

  2. I have the opposite problem; I’m posting too much about horribly trivial things. I’m not busy enough, John is sick, and I’m feeling lonely and out of sorts. I’m good at picking apart illogical scenarios, not that I’m such a logical person. Ironic that I can see it so easily in others, eh? I hope that Snoskred is OK! I’ve been hoping to see a post from her.

    1. I don’t find your posts trivial. Now, wanting to argue about whether tv characters should have parties without inviting their roommates? Well your thoughts are not only logical but thoughtful.

      I know the feeling lonely and out of sorts. Most weeks I have very little contact with the outside world. The power chair is back on the table and I’ll find out in the next few weeks whether it’s going to happen. I’m hoping that will get me out at least in my neighborhood. I wish it would get me to the library but I’m not willing to cross big roads. I just need to find things to do in my immediate area.

  3. I’ve not seen The Tourist or Hancock. I’ve not heard of them but that’s no surprise. I’m rarely in the know about Netflix. I’ve been watch Schitts Creek which makes for a fast diversion each afternoon. Watched The Crown but wasn’t as taken with it as previous seasons. Will you be replacing Netflix with something else? We have Hulu which doesn’t thrill me and Acorn which does.

  4. Hulu provides me with network shows. Well, except CBS. I can sort of get them via antenna but I can’t get used to watching things when they are actually on TV. But I’m not replacing Netflix. I’m just saving a few bucks. Looking for some more to save. Aren’t we all?
