Noticed In Passing

I wasn’t watching the Oscars. I’m not boycotting them; I think the “lack of diversity” noise is a total bunch of crap, and on several levels.  I don’t watch the Oscars because it never ends. I swear the show runs for a week. A lifetime. Two lifetimes. It makes the SuperBowl look like a speed dating session.

But I did notice that a young Swedish actress named Alicia Vikander won for Best Supporting Actress for some film I’d never heard of.

Interesting looking young woman. Is she plain or is she perfect? Hot or squat? So I pulled up pictures of her, and found she starred in a remake of Man From U.N.C.L.E. last year. I didn’t even know that was a movie. Hey, fine, I lived under a roc. And a rock! But in my own defense, the TV news shows don’t do movie reviews any more, we don’t get the newspapers so we don’t see the film ads, and we don’t even have a single movie theater in the entire county any more. Plus most of them suck wind anyway. So film and I parted company years ago, mostly. Mostly.

Love the dress. Why wait for a wardrobe malfunction when you can design one right into the neckline? I love the elegant demure, yet sexy pre-ravaged look. Confusing but attention grabbing.
I’ve also always had a warm spot for early 60s fashions, the almost-mod look. Dig her contrasting giant bangles, the Wayfairers, and that fitted 1963 A-Line dress straight off of Jackie. The big hat and the curled up little pony-do give it all class; the bakelite earrings make it fun. Fashion, baby.

And as usual, clicky gets you humongous embiggification.

I am going to beat it

Getting My Groove Back

I’ve had some pretty severe writer’s block lately. I just haven’t been able to hit the keyboard and throw works at this blog and get the posts out. Sure, there’s been some burnout because the stories don’t change. The Middle East is still a mess, Obama is still a traitor masquerading as a fool, Hillary is still a lying, corrupt, murderous thug. And then there’s Trump. And those damn “rapeugees” invading Europe. I start feeling like what’s his name with the rock ... Sissypuss I think he was called, although I may be confusing my mythological Greeks with Carvel ice cream cakes?

Right. Suffering from “KD”. Keyboard Dysfunction. What can you do? [ take one Sophie  Viagra Vergara and contact your doctor for a blogging session that lasts longer than 4 hours? ] I have ideas for posts. I have all sorts of links. I do background research. And then somehow it all just deflates and goes limp, and I have to go to work or do some housework or shopping or whatever.

But I can beat this. I think I can, I think I can, I know I can!

What’s easy to post on? Ah, Fun League. Our little team pretty much sucks this year, but we’re in it for fun. We manage to hit the bottom of the standings and then bounce back a few slots time after time. I think we’re hovering just below 50% wins, which means we are sinking, but slowly. This week we didn’t quite sink. None of us were quite warmed up enough in the first game, posting lousy scores way below average. I threw a 137. Yikes. A guy on the opponent’s team was having the game of his life - we always bring out the very best in our opponents, go figure - and threw a 260. Awsome. A 260 is 2 spares shy of a perfect game, so that fellow was hitting strikes all over the place. Bastard. So we went down in flames in Game 1, losing by something like 156 pins.

Game 2 we woke up, and the other team had shot their load and forgot to take their ”Sophies” or something. So we shined, and they were flat. I tossed a 214 and we won that one by 79. Look out, here we come, gonna eat up your lead and take that wood!

Game 3, not only did I have all my ducks in a row AND had them wired tight, I must have stapled their little feet to the floor so they couldn’t go anywhere [ just an expression. No actual ducks are allowed inside the bowling alley, and running in and out with a staple gun every frame is severely frowned upon. ]. You know it. It turned out that the elusive strike line was half a damn board to the outside on my approach footing. Once I moved, and kept my eye on the target, I just hammered the crap out of the pins. The other guys on my team did well too, but I threw a 240 [ a pile of strikes on the end of a game that started out as a Dutch 200 through the 6th. So we won that last game big time, I just missed a 600 series for the night, and we ... still lost overall wood. But only by 6 pins!

There. I can so post. And throw in a bunch of links, and crack wise, and tell a story.  Now, if only I could convince myself that politics was interesting again, then I could truly get all fired up.

left turn at Albuquerque

I was going to post (re-post) Fat Les’ soccer anthem Vindaloo in celebration of my successful Thai yellow curry ( I added a tsp of powdered galangal and made the chicken and tater curry in the pressure cooker.) Because all curry is Vindaloo, and it’s a proper Swing Your Arms and Stomp Your Feet tune to play loudly when you’re feeling strong and positive.  Yay, curry! Yay! Vindaloo!!!

But the follow on video at YouTube was my downfall. Stacy’s Mom. Who, in case you never noticed, is semi-retired swimwear model Rachel Hunter. Which would mean that Stacy’s dad ... is Rod Stewart??  I love the ending, a total replay of the epic Phoebe Cates scene from Fast Times At Ridgemont High.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
