One of the drawbacks of having to deal with governmental paperwork is feeling as though I am back in the city stuck in a cubicle.You have to compile all the paperwork to submit, or then to verify and..**sigh**
So in honor of ungluing my butt off this chair, I am going to go, despite the fact I already have my 15,000 Fit Bit Zip steps, and the girls and I are going to go outside.There is nothing of note on cable, which always has me shake my head that there is NOTHING calling my name to watch.In fact, I have Working Girl on as background noise, and after all the times I have seen it over the years, I can probably recite the dialogue by heart.
“I have a head for business, and a bod for sin…anything wrong with that?”
Fresh air waits. See ya!
For lack of anything worthwhile on five zillion stations on cable, I put on White Christmas on Netflix.
No, there’s no snow right now in Cape May, but as someone with a first day of winter birthday, I always felt I had squatters rights on this film. My parents watched movies on the television and White Christmas always seemed to air in time for my Mom’s or my birthday. I remember being in my childhood kitchen, and Mom and I turned the tv around into the kitchen so we could watch White Christmas while we made cookies.
#Thankful for those days
There’s nothing on tv.
We have cable, with the appropriate bells and whistles and premium channels and times are so hard, we are actually watching Phillies baseball for lack of anything better on.Truth be told, I have found some great stuff on Netflix so I really am not caring that the summer season is holding nothing on the television that I need to watch.
It is good, because the girls and I get to go our and walk and enjoy a quiet night and/or sunset.The flip side of this is we have to dodge the mosquitoes, but that’s part of the area here.
Still, a good sunset beats cable any night of the week, and a walk with the girls is the most healing of balms.
I am bingeing on the HBO series “The Jinx”, about real estate millionaire Robert Durst.
They have turned it into a docudrama, but it’s funny how it shows how the judicial system works for the rich.
He was accused of killing an ex-neighbor in Texas, his medical student wife disappeared and he still is a suspect in that, and then there’s a third person, a lady friend who he is accused of murder.It’s kind of sad, that now they are having the wife’s family talk about how they looked for her. Oh,did I mention she disappeared in 1982? Friends stole Durst’s trash and caught him throwing away his wife’s medical books, make-up, clothes.
The reason I put this on is that there was a piece on the news that they stopped him from getting on a plane to Cuba.I assume we don’t have extradition there.It really sounded like a strange case, so I am checking it out….until the Voice is on at 8…lol
As I type this, “The Fugitive”, starring Harrison Ford is playing on cable. I think this move was in the early 1990’s. Earlier, Jim and I watched “In The Line Of Fire”, which starred Clint Eastwood. It, too, was from the early 1990’s.
Did you ever get into a rut where the movies that you watch were like a comfort food of sorts? I mean, we watch the films because we like them, or something in the movie strikes a message to us.Then, in the next breath, I find myself lamenting the fact that there are no movies that we currently like around.
At least when the Phillies were good, Jim and I had something to sit and watch together at night.Now,it is a different time.We watch things here but as folks with cable find out, there are a ton of stations with not many things worth watching.
