2013.03.05: "... exasperating, frustrating, anarchic and in a constant state of renewal. It's not t
So writes Roger Ebert about "Holy Motors".
1. Which we will watch this evening.
2. It's been a day off on-again, off-again rain with a little hard storming thrown in for good measure.
3. From temptest to tempeh, to finish off our ... Read more
2013.03.04: "...And if your sister is your aunt and your mother marries your uncle ..."
"you'd be your own grandpa!" (exclaims Scully)
And that was "Synchrony", which we watched last night; tonight it was "Small Potatoes". No potatoes to eat, though!
Weeks ago Ms. S. picked up two packages of tempeh (Lightlife), a... Read more
2013.03.03: Sunday in a few words
After French toast for breakfast/brunch, after the sourdough working out great -- yay! --, and after the 'Vintage Market' and our rotation and a dinner with delicious tempeh, I rewatched "Bolt" with Ms. S.; it was new to her.
We both cried.... Read more
2012.03.02: Suddenly Saturday!
Friday redux, Saturday as it happens, and Sunday plans.
Post-shopping we had the joy of our usual rotation, an episode each of 'X-Files' and 'Millennium'.
The latter, which was actually the first watched, was a bit weird and of... Read more
2013.03.01: A new month ... reboot?
Goals (quality and quantity) and the day ahead.
Ms. S. and I will, briefly, be heading out to take care of our beginning of the month shopping chores.
So many words, so little described.
Grocery and around the house items.... Read more
2013.02.28: Another Month Ends
Back on the routine!
A. 'Millennium': "Covenant" ... set in Utah with a family that was likely Mormon but not listed as such. It was a very 'Law & Order' sort of episode, and slow and methodical. Ms. S., smart as she is, called it e... Read more
2013.02.27: Returning to Routine
A day on the road, back to the rotation, tasks ahead.
The flights were uneventful, though from Portland to Atlanta I had the cutest children (4-ish-year-old George and infant William) beside me. Even with a very short layover in Atl... Read more
2013.02.26: Early Morning
Recap, packing, computing -- in that order.
The bowling ... 142, 130, 103, 143.
All far below my old average, but since I hadn't been to the lanes in nearly a year, I can't complain that much. The three of us split the first th... Read more
2013.02.25: "Take the _________ bowling ..."
Memorabilia and "exercise", a relaxing Monday ...?
I'm on to week 4 of 'One Hundred Pushups', and it's beginning to strain what I can do ... perhaps I just didn't eat enough in the morning before doing said pushups.
But I have ... Read more
2013.02.24: Staying Ahead of the Curve
Driving, writing, and partying.
Kamiah to Boise is a nice drive with several options available. Kamiah to Grangeville and Meadows to Boise/Meridian each have two main alternatives, providing four options; Grangeville to Meadows has ... Read more
2013.02.23: Pollo fundido ... for the win?
Dinner at Palenque in Kamiah ... blackberry margerita to get things going.
The daily special was pollo fundido and I didn't want something too large, too heavy. It was reasonably sized and delicious in a trashy sort of way ... the cheese sl... Read more
2013.02.22: Driving in a Winter Wonderland
Maybe we'll stop and make a snowman.
It's weird being in a different time zone (again) or a little while. It's only an hour, so not a huge adjustment, but it's ... just enough.
On the one hand 6am here is 7am 'for me', and so I alread... Read more
2013.02.21: Leaving on a Jet Plane ...
... I didn't get to sleep much 'last night', meaning Wednesday evening after I packed and while Ms. S. was at work.
Because I was bringing my parents a few bottles of beer, I had to check one bag of luggage.
We left around 3:30, gettin... Read more
2013.02.20: Wednesday in brief
Tuesday and Wednesday, heading into Thursday ...
Went out Tuesday evening to see "Rust and Bone" at the 'Bama ... and I found it entirely worthwhile. It's a well-acted movie with several emotionally intense sense. Ms. S. responded t... Read more
2013.02.19: "You can't ask the truth of a man who trades in lies."
Thus spake Skinner ("Memento Mori") in an episode we're scheduled to watch today but probably won't.
Bama Art House is showing "Rust and Bone" this evening (7:30; doors open at 6:45) and we're probably going. It's nice to get out an... Read more
