Last night's feature movie was "The Nines" (2007). In this as in "The Voices" (2014) and "Paper Man" (2009), Ryan Reynolds demonstrates a great emotive range, and if his breakthrough into mainstream was stalled by his association with the stinker of a script that was "Green Lantern" (2011), that's a damn shame. Don't get me wrong, the Deadpool movies have richly emotional moments, but mostly in spite of Reynolds being too disfigured to cry or simply masked through most of them. It's too much for coincidenc... (...more)

a snatch of verse bubbled up from grammar-school memory: My na~ame is D***** - my friends call me Satan Or sometimes it's Datsun - but most times it lots'a fun Except "Satan" did not come along until junior high, thanks to a kid named Tony Lima aka "Munchie".

Called the ACA administration to make sure my old coverage was cancelled and apply tax credits to the current, but considering employer coverage will start in 15 days I think I'll just recoup my tax credits with my tax return. I do feel confident my coverage was continuous so at least I won't get bludgeoned with a tax penalty.

But my attention span for reggae is limited, so I turned toward goa/psy-trance mixes. ~10:30 I took a 100mg caf pill, after lunch I was dragging again so I po... (...more)

Legal wrangles called Miss to FL, so we mixed a carafe of margaritas and made it an early night instead of our usual movie last night. I remember her waking me to say goodbye when it was still quite dark out, and then I woke again ~5:30, and then aside from a catnap from ~7:15-8ish I didn't get much sleep after that. Work was not "busy" as it sometimes is, but I had a couple of data analysis projects to keep me occupied. empty dishwasher water plants empty laundry basket Penny Ford relates the ... (...more)
