Kit’s Day Out

Well, figuratively on the loose. Kit was out and about, but they had tied a small balloon to him (so folks could see, at a distance, that he was out and about).


Georgia Travels, Day 1

Nearby, between the restaurant and our car, we passed by a Puttshack. We saw what looked to be an indoor minigolf course, and decided to try our luck.

Despite how late it was, and despite how tired we were, Liz and I figured on stopping in to see if they had any open slots. Luckily for us, they did.


Resident Alien

It’s been an odd and interesting show to watch, so far. We’re several episodes into the first season, and I’m still trying to figure out the genre.

In a few instances, it’s a bit gruesome and gory. But it’s also playful and silly (with Tudyk’s character getting into arguments with an elementary school kid). There are moments of serious drama, and other moments of slapstick comedy. It’s a bit all over.


Borg Remastered

Here’s a new term I came across: FMV (Full-Motion Video). It’s a kind of video game comprised entirely of pre-recorded videos.

If it sounds a bit dated, well… that’s where you’re right. But note that we’re talking about Star Trek here. And we’re talking about a chance to play this game, for free, online.


True Detective, Season 4

So this is an odd thing to say, but I found the sex scenes in the first episode incredibly revealing. I’m not talking about the physical act that was shown, I’m talking about the way that these scenes spoke about Foster and Reis’ characters.

It’s hard to describe if you haven’t seen it. I’m not talking about the tawdry or lascivious nature of these scenes. To me, they genuinely added an incredible amount of depth to both characters, giving a lot of interesting insight into how both women carried themselves in the world.



Interestingly, as much as I was into poetry, I never got that much into Bukowski’s poems – I gravitated more to his fiction. And also read a lot of John Fante, as a result.


Lazy Day

A bit later on in the evening. I realized I hadn’t gotten any photos of Sandy, who continues to be the best dog ever. For a good part of our stay, she was curled up in her bed in front of the fireplace. Which, let’s be honest… if I could get away with doing something like that, I’d do that all week long.


Finding Bobo

Something happened to me today. I was browsing Instagram, and I saw a photo from my friend Betsy. And I looked a little closer at this photo, and I was taken aback.

If you’ll indulge me, I’d like to recreate for you the experience I had. Stay with me here.
