Post 2373 - Friday

It is 11pm.  I should be in bed because I have to get up early in the morning. 

As I mentioned last night, I am not going to the cottage this weekend.  Patricia drove up this morning because she had a thing to attend to in New Glasgow.  She reported to me this evening that the lawn at the cottage needs to be mowed as much as Mrs. O'Leary's cow needs to be milked. 

I had to take a nap when I got home this evening. Newbie was happy to see me, or at least happy for me to feed him.   He eventually joined me on the bed, snuggling up against me  in a way that makes me think he's a lonely cat when I'm not at home.

I will go to my mother's in the morning, there to spend a couple of days.  I need to mow the lawn there, too, but that won't happen because of the weather. 

I will probably spend part of an afternoon or evening watching a film called "Movie 43".  I watched part of it last evening.  It may be the oddest film I have ever seen.  It has an all-star cost: Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Will Sasso, and an awful lot of other people who should have known better. 

It took the filmmakers literally a few years to shoot it all.  They would have to wait until certain actors were available and get them to agree to work for scale.  I have no idea why they would agree to this.  The segment I watched featured Kate Winslet going out on a date with Hugh Jackman, and how Winslet reacts to an unfortunate birth defect that Jackman doesn't notice, but which makes Winslet extremely uncomfortable.  It wasn't funny at all.  Just... weird, and makes a person why these people would agree to shoot something so stupid.

I will watch the rest of the film this weekend, probably Saturday, and report back here afterward.  I know all 4.7 of you care deeply.   Bottom line: I think there is something in that movie to offend everybody, regardless of how liberal he may think he is. 

Anyway, it's getting late, and I haven't packed anything for the weekend yet.  Should turn in. 

See you tomorrow.
