Argh. Had to add things. I have this annoying feeling that I could either combine some scenes or take them out, but there isn’t enough brain power to process it. I R Dumb.
So much to do this week. Need to get the France schedule, need to finish tax filing, need to cut IRS a check, need to do hair, nails, face. Small Magics signing pages. IRA contribution. Alarm system dude. Trash removal. All on top of edits Oy.
And I still haven’t had my tea this morning.
I cannot curl into a ball and nap. Although that would be lovely. Do you remember when you were little and your parents tried to make you take a nap, and you were like “No! Naps are stupid!” I bet you wish you weren’t so mean to naps. Naps are awesome.
Had to unravel the shawl a little. Forgot to purl every other row in lace and knitted it instead. Lace looked a mess.
Need to figure out some sort of audio books for the trip. I do best with the Martian and Black Jack Geary series, so I’ll have to find something similar and engaging. Need to make a doctor appointment to get sleeping pills for the flight. You put me in the car, on a ship, or on a train, and I fall asleep. Plane is a no go. No matter how tired I am, I can’t sleep, and this will be an overnight flight over Atlantic.
I keep meaning to recommend Death, Love, and Robots and forgetting. It’s a new show on Netflix which consists of short animated films unrelated to each other. It’s not a kid show; there is violence and nudity, but it would be really good for a high school age teen interested in weird and fiction. It will blow their mind.
Don’t start with the first episode. It has a message and it’s very blunt in its delivery. I almost didn’t continue after watching it. The rest of the episodes are much more subtle, so I would recommend starting with either of the following episodes: Suits (#4), Sucker of Souls (#5), or Fish Night (#12.) Once you watch one of those, then you’re good to watch everything else. The werewolf episode is amazing. I’m not recommending starting with it because to me it was a highlight.
Your battle quote:
“We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalog of human crime. That is our policy.”
