Black Mirror Season 4

Season 4 of Black Mirror is on Netflix.  If you have not seen this series, you need to check it out.  It is like the Twilight Zone with technology.  Those that have seen it, it's back.  It's just as good as it has been.

Star Wars Fanatic

I got a lot of Star Wars items this Christmas.  I sort of wished I had collected all along.  Some things are valuable.  For me, it's just neat to have.  I got some shirts, pops, tsum tsums, mugs, and a cup. My office will be decked out.

Christmas 2017

I woke early this morning.  The kids were not even stirring.  I ate some breakfast and looked over Twitter. When I went back to the room, one was up and another was. Stirring.  I kept them on the room until anther appeared.  At that point, I asked if it was time to wake.  Going back to the room, I noticed Elana had escaped.  I corralled her back in the room.  I woke the last stragglers and turned on lights.  I jumped! Something had moved.  I was not ready for it.  It was a toy dog. 

Everyone came out to the living room and opened gifts.  I think we had a great Christmas.  I got a drone and lots of Funko Pops.  I hope I have room at work.

Christmas Eve 2017

Started the day shopping.  I am bad at Christmas shopping. I either procrastinate or find out near Christmas that I did not buy many gifts.  Luckily, Elana and I got out early.  We got in and out.  At one point, Elana tells me that I forgot to buckle her.  We were on the highway heading home.  I looked in the mirror and noticed that I had buckled her.  She was repeating something she had heard from Mia.

Morning Show

Our movie was st 9:00 am.  I remember working shows like that.  We got to the theater around 8:30 am.  At that time, the theater shows an entertainment video.  Breakfast was popcorn and soda.  Breakfast of champions! There were about 20 to 30 others in the theater.

Break Out the Robes

Trump is not even worrying about most Americans.  Staying loyal to his base, he is claiming that all Haitians have AIDS and that Nigerians still live in huts.  I guess it plays well in the cheap seats. Next thing you know, he'll hold a cross burning on the White House lawn.  The GOP will be right there cheering him on.

Jedi Love

I don't see where all the anger is coming from.  The Last Jedi was amazing.  I guess there will always people that hate things.  It has humor, action, drama.  What more could you ask for.  Wait till you see how the Porgs fit into the story.  I love the new characters and the actors/actresses that played them.  By all means, go see this movie.  It is worth your time and money.

The Last Jedi

Stay tuned.  At the theater now!

Warm Christmas

While others have a white Christmas, we will be having a warm one.  I'm in shorts and the air is on.  I might even go out to pull weeds.  The Nazis will be watching.  One spy likes to let you know everyday.

Things we do in the Shadows

So, the GOP bill for the rich is going to pass.  They wrote it in secret, with the help of rich donors and lobbyists.  They even through in things right up to the last minute.  Did the Democrats flinch?  No.  They sat there and whined.  I think their strategy is the let them have the rope and they will hang themselves.  To me, they are weak and non confrontational.  That is why the slimy turtle knows he can do whatever he wants.  Next up, shutting down medicaid and other welfare programs to pay for the tax cuts for the rich.  But don't worry if you are not rich.  The Democrats will beat that drum for 11 months.  If you expect relief, vote out the bums.  Schumer and Pelosi have no other plans. 

Shopping at Night

I had Secret Santa shopping detail last night.  After the play, we went right to the store.  It was packed.  They had lines that rivaled Black Friday.  The people were annoying.  I don't understand why people think that others want to hear their conversations.  These people have loud conversations on their phone, like they are in their living room.  It's a nightmare.  Be careful telling them to be quiet.  You may get beat up or shot.  I saw a story out of the Miami area where a woman was attacked by 5 or 6 others.  Thank God for Amazon. 

Evening Show

I brought my daughters for an evening play that one of my girls was appearing in.  I tell you.  I'm not a fan of being around other families.  Maybe it's just a closeness thing or the way some of them act.  Most act like their kid deserves the spotlight.  They're even willing to push you out of the way to get that shot.  I did not get to see it, though.  My youngest was very restless.  It took forever to start.  By start time, I was in the hallway, daughter in lap.  I even had to motion for some kids to move on.  They were amazed by Elana's blindness.  I just motioned for them to move on.  I can imagine once the show started, everyone had their phones out.  Schools should ban that and tape it themselves and put it on their site or send it to all parents.  That way, people can enjoy it without interruption.

Painting on the Wall

Last night, I made a huge error.  When one of my daughters gets home, we usually put her in a onesie.  Why?  Because she had a tendency to do bad things with her diaper.  I'm cooking dinner.  My daughter smells something.  We thought it was another child.  I checked her and it was not her.  I finished dinner.  I go to bring said child to the table.  As I closed in, the smell of poop got stronger.  On the wall in front of her is a nice finger paint she did for us.  Oh and she used her poop to create it.  I blew up.  I was yelling, but it did not matter.  She could not hear me.  I had to clean her up, the wall up and everything around her.  It was gross.  I'm surprised that I did not throw up.  I did have other daughters who were mad at me.  I know, I handled it wrong.  I am not a fan of cleaning up poop.

Good Reviews Versus Bad Reviews

I see a story on Forbes about how the The Last Jedi is the least liked of the series.  But, the critics have it at 93%.  How is that?  I guess this reviewer is trying to get fans to boycott the movie.  I will have to see for myself.  I really do not trust others opinions.  I tried watching the Phantom Menace.  I could not get into it.  The kid was annoying as hell.  Jar Jar was added for toddlers to laugh at his asinine antics.  Then there is the way Jedi's are discovered.  They have a Midi-Chlorian blood test that they forgot about in the later movies?  That does not make sense.  You did not see Yoda question Obi-Wan about Luke's Midi-Chlorian count.  I don't remember him saying "Check him for Midi-Chlorians did you?".

Outlet Shopping in Orlando

We tried to go to an outlet store last night.  Big mistake.  Close to Christmas, you either go early or not at all.  We drove around and there were no spots to be found.  People were parking where they were not allowed.  Tow truck drivers were busy.  When I got out, I ran to a store and quickly got what I needed.  I grabbed for my phone and it was dead.  It took some time to find my ride. By that time, the Christmas spirit was gone.

Neighbors. From Hell

For starters, don't ever buy into an HOA.  What is it.  A Home Owners Association.  Basically, they are like the Stalinist form of communism.  Only, if you mess up, the can fine you and put a lien on your house.  We got a notice.  We have weeds.  We have 10 days to comply.  We got it with 2 days left.  Believe me, they are evil.  Some neighbors like the power of ratting out people.  We've lived here for more than 15 years.

Hot Day in Florida

We went from hear to air conditioning in a matter of days.    I'm sitting on the trampoline with two of my daughters.  They get tired of being cooped up.  It is warm out.

The Last Jedi

The new Star Wars is out.  I hope to see it, but I don't know when that will be possible.  There are actually about 3-4 movies coming out that I want to see.  I did not get to see the Shape of Water.  Downsizing looks good and I think Jumanji might be worth seeing.  Get out and see some movies.

Shape of Water

It looks like I will get to see this movie tonight.  It is a movie by Guillermo del Toro.  I can't wait to see this.  I love the movies by this man.  Pan's Labrynth, Blade II, Pacific Rim, to name a few.  His best work comes from his own original ideas.

Kingsman 2

I took the girls to see Kingsman 2.  We liked it.  It had lots of actions and a touch of comedy.  Definitely not for kids of a younger age.  It was a great way to spend a cold day.  We are cooler than usual, but it won't last.

New Museum

In Mississippi, they are having a grand opening for a civil rights museum.  The only problem is they invited a racist to attend.  What were they hoping to attract?  The Klan.  Maybe they wanted a good old fashioned cross burning.  Now people like John Lewis refuse to attend.  I don't blame him.  I wanted want to be a part of Trump's photo op.

Why Bother?

Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital.  Why?  We all know it.  Other countries know it.  No one has publicly recognized it.  They are trying to broker a peace deal.  But by siding with Israel, he is showing that the US is firmly on one side.  Palestinians will not trust our country.  Not only that, but he makes it less safe for Americans outside of the US.  This just piles on to his Muslim ban.  Trump is trying to start a "holy war" for his Radical Christian groups.  They love it.  It scares me.

The Disaster Artist

A movie came out this week that looks worth seeing.  It is called the Disaster Artist.  It was done by James Franco.  It is sort of like Ed Wood.  Another person who went to Hollywood and was determined to make his own movie.  Albeit a really bad film that has gained cult status called The Room.  From what I have seen, it looks interesting.  I like Ed Wood.  Do I think they deserved Oscars over Samuel L Jackson in Pulp Fiction? Hell No!
