Knives Out, Rain, Too many Santa hats

I think the most annoying thing about the Jesus fantasy is the proliferation of red velvet hats with white fur trim. The second most annoying is the Comcast program guide almost totally filled with Christmas this and Christmas that and snow this and snow that. TWC wasted the whole day predicting which cities would have a white xmas, though the answer clearly was "not hardly any one". The south is having a heat wave. So is the east. It's wet in California. And Oregon and Washington.

I am also annoyed that my allegedly Jewish cousins in the UK celebrate Jesus day as if they were Christians. And they pretend it's the same as Hanukkah. There's even a meme which shows a Jesus tree which becomes a menorah when flipped upside down. Both festivals are based on a lie.

The usual breakfast, but for lunch I made a PNB&J sandwich. Was done in time to be at J's at 1:30, she drove us to her new neighborhood theater to see Knives Out. She bragged that she got the last two seats. When the tickets were printed I almost walked out - they were the first row. She had misread the map and thought they were in the back row.

I spent all the trailers with my eyes closed and really should have walked out but stayed because I didn't want to ruin it for her.

From what glimpses I got, it is a beautifully shot movie, there is a stellar cast, excellent direction, pretty good script, and lots of diversions and twists and red herrings. I'm torn, because it's really not my kind of movie, and the main character annoyed the hell out of me so I don't really want to go back by myself and see it from the back row, which is how it is meant to be seen. But there's also Cats and Frozen 2 which I have not seen. And I should not be spending $$ on movies anyway.

Home with a mild headache.

Watched one of my favorite streamers in LV.

Got my cousin's snailmail from my middle sister, added a label to the calendar list.

Did two loads of laundry.

Mac & sliced turkey franks & cheese for dinner.

It has rained some today, on and off.

I trimmed Spook's nails. Once she understood I was not letting her out of my lap, she mostly played dead and let me trim them all. But as soon as I let her go she fled. Also vacuumed the section of carpet with the scraps she clawed from her tube/platform. She swatted at the machine a couple of times.

Watched some Ice Pilots on TWC. Earlier I think I saw De La Salle's football team get crushed by a relative unknown. Bosco. St. John Bosco. He's the patron saint of juvenile delinquents. Fitting.

Ordered a pair of wall calendars on Amazon.

Plans for tomorrow:
Shopping for grocs which GO doesn't carry. Whole Foods, Lucky's, Safeway.
Maybe get a haircut
Unload the dryer, fold and put away undies & socks & hang up shirts
