There's still time to sign up for Season 10 of LJ Idol
! The deadline will probably be sometime next week, so don't too long. :)
I feel a little better for having gotten the Trump
thing off my chest. It needed to be said before I could talk about anything else. It's going to be a long, terrible ride for a lot of people who are already hurting. :(Thanksgiving
is next week, and we have no idea what our plans are. Probably just staying home? We haven't been invited by HalfshellHusband's Bay Area relatives, and couldn't go last year. HSH had C-Diff, and that meant staying as far away as possible from the rest of the family, as one of them is highly immuno-suppressed and the rest have regular contact with her. It would just have been too risky. From last year's failed alternate-celebration planning, we did learn that pretty much everything is closed on Thanksgiving—so no Chinese food or pizza options. We might have Weber-barbecued turkey yet, which I would enjoy. It's been awhile.
I have next week off, so I hope to do more clearing out of stuff. We'll see how well that goes. Our daughter
will be home for part of the week, and I'm really looking forward to that. The last likely activity, wading into Christmas shopping, definitely gives me pause. *dreads*
HSH and I went on a date last weekend to see Dr. Strange
, which was fun. Really neat visuals, much of it kind of Escher-esque. The previews before the movie, well... Since I'm not really a fan of comics in general, a lot of these made me think, "God, why?
" The Great Wall of China as a secret alien defense system? Power Rangers
OTOH, there was a trailer for Toycracker
, a toy-based version of The Nutracker, and HSH is excited about that. It has Minions. :)
Now, with that anti-comic-based-material bias laid out, we HAD started to watch Luke Cage
on Netflix. I like the cast (despite what they've done with Alfre Woodard, which hurts me on some fannish and unexplainable level). For those of you familiar with the show or comic at all, you might enjoy this little video of Who Said It: Luke Cage or Nic Cage?
that WIRED magazine put together. I think the end verdict is that we would all like to see a lot more of Mike Colter!
All right. How is it only Wednesday?
