Yeah. It’s been a little while. What, 6 months or so of a little while? The job continues to be insanely busy. We’re back in the house, which makes my 9-10-11 hours days intl 11-12-13 hours days. Which means I don’t get much of anything else done. But we’re hiring, so I’m hopeful that I’ll start getting some of my life back.
I’m writing again, which is a brilliant feeling.
I managed to see all but one of the best picture nominees for the Academy Awards. And considering I have to go either to Hulen Mall in Ft. Worth or the Magnolia in Dallas, I’m not sure I’ll catch that one. But they were all brilliant, and they all deserve the nominations. Right now I think Argo is my vote for best picture. Not that my vote counts one lick of course, but there you have it. If they gave an award for most visually arresting movie, it would definitely go to Life of Pi. An award to a small child who carries a whole movie? I’m about to massacre her name, but Qu’venshene as Hushpuppy in Beasts of the Southern Wild was ah-maaaaaazing. Tommy Lee Jones in Lincoln. And I will shamefacedly confess to cheering when Christophe Waltz shot Leonardo diCaprio’s despicable Candie in Django Unchained. Speaking of Django, did you know the D is silent? Don’t like my lame jokes? Argo f*** yourself!!
I’m maneuvering myself back to a vegetarian mostly vegan diet, and feeling so damned much better. I was born to be vegetarian. Joe complains that it takes so long for food to get through his digestive system. Me, I eat a bowl of cabbage soup and an hour later my interior plumbing is clean and shiny. TMI, I know. Sorry. I’ll try to start blogging more frequently. Hope you’ve missed me enough that you might rejoin me on my journey back.
