It’s Thanksgiving in the US today. It’s a normal workday here. I’m taking leftover chili for lunch.
I guess with covid, a lot of families won’t be getting together this year. I think last year my mom and sister got together. Not this year. My sister is in the hospital after a hernia operation and my mom is locked down at home.
We’ve had a couple nice days in a row and I’m hoping for a beach lunch hour.
I’ve had a Galaxy watch since my birthday last July. I use it for exercise every day. Yesterday a co worker was wearing one, and I was showing him all kinds of stuff on it. I feel like I don’t know my way around the watch too well, but when I get in the shower, it goes into all kinds of modes I’ve never seen before and don’t know how to get to.
This morning though, it simply went into “walk” mode. Above is an accidental picture. It’s me, taking a shower, and walking around, getting ready for work. Naked.
I have never had the perfect coffee cup. They’re either too small, or have an uncomfortable finger-holding thingy, unacceptable advertising, they rust if they’re metal and they stink or stain if they’re plastic. And they can’t be too tippy and they can’t slide around the table if the ship rolls. Its good it they fit in a cars cup holder.
At my in-laws house, there’s a cup with the perfect finger holder, but it holds an insufficient amount of coffee. I have a stainless steel travel bug that has rusted, and is tall and tippy and is uncomfortable to hold. The one I’m using, pictured above, has unacceptable advertising. It says starbucks on the other side, and has an uncomfortable finger loop and burns your fingers if you hold it too long.
So, this weekend, it occurred to me to begin a worldwide quest to find and obtain, to have and to hold, the perfect coffee cup.
In other news, it was a pretty good weekend. I participated in an underwater treasure hunt and won a bottle of barbecue sauce. It was, and is still, cloudy and rainy.
Last night we watched a movie called Geostorm. It had really bad reviews. But the Wife and I didn’t think it seemed too bad, if you ignore everything you ever learned about space and satellites and science..
It’s about a satellite network the unified earth created to control the weather. If you watch it, try to think of the bad parts as being funny, like a firey sinkhole that seems to be targeting a particular teeny tiny car by following it as it speeds down the road. Or the commander telling the technician to “dissect each component” as a method to troubleshoot a malfunctioned satellite. Or lightning repeatedly trying with a will to strike one particular person.
I call it a “Sharknado Class” movie. Super unrealistic and impossible, but fun to watch.
It had good cameramanship, (I wouldn’t say special effects, but I suppose I could, but it doesn’t seem like the right term.) Visuals. It has good visuals.
Wish someone would control the weather around here. Super windy and off and on rain. Lugubrious.
I had a super bizarre dream last night. An airline was making two planeloads of people disappear.
I flew. I landed. I received 150 towels with black and white stripes. Because of this, for some reason, nobody else could get off the (2) plane(s).
The baggage had already been unloaded and was going around the carousel, so people knew their friends and families flights arrived, but the airline was struggling to collect all the baggage and put it in little bags marked “Evidence”.
The airline had no intention of ever letting anyone from either of the two flights go. Never-ever. Their plan was to deny that the flights even existed.
The only reason I wasn’t among those passengers was because of the towels, which weren’t mine, given to me by some mistake and I had to prove the two flights existed and the people were being held.
Why two flights and not just mine, I don’t know.
For some reason, the towels were the reason the airlines had to erase.the existence of the two flights, and it couldn’t be un-did.
My repairs on the porch came out, I think, very good. And I did it all by myself. Need to get some paint today. I don’t really like the color though. I think it’s called “Babyshit Brown”. It doesn’t really look like the color in the picture. In real life, it looks much more like baby shit.
Supposed to rain here today. On our dawg walk this morning I saw one planet, zero stars. Now, in the light it’s mostly cloudy. Like 99.99999999%. Totally cloudy. Not conducive for painting. But it will take longer to mix the paint and prep than actually paint. Maybe I can giterdun.
