  • I am officially too damned old for New Year’s Eve.  I was as sober as a judge all night, and went to bed at 9:30.
  • Our garbage men are going to hate us, because we have approximately 13 cubic yards of junk ready to go out to the curb.
  • I braved the nippy Kentucky weather yesterday to make a donut run, before I had coffee.  If that’s not love, I don’t know what is.
  • Girlie Bear knew she had gotten Boo a good book when he immediately ignored her so he could read the first 20 pages.
  • Took Irish Woman and Boo to see Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle this morning.  We figured that most of the annoying people would either be at home sleeping it off or at someone else’s home trying to figure out where their clothes were.
    • I enjoyed this movie more than The Last (Star Wars Movie I’ll Pay Full Price to See) Jedi.  Yeah, it’s not a classic of American cinema, but it was fun.
  • Here are the movies that had trailers at the theater this morning:
    • Maze Runner:  The Death Cure – Pretty young people revolt against the ugly old people who are doing ugly things, and triumph after overcoming great physical and moral obstacles, such as getting their faces artistically dirty, and going through through a pretty outrageous series of pretty dangerous stunts and action scenes, because they’re pretty.
    • Sherlock Gnomes – Gnomeo and Juliet are back to make all kinds of new little-people based puns, along with a certain detective being portrayed in a way that is making the baby Jesus cry.
    • Spider-Man:  Into the Spider-Verse – Apparently there is a plague of radioactive spiders in New York, because every disaffected teen in the city is crawling the walls.
    • Peter Rabbit – Rey and General Hux are back, only this time they’re not in a galaxy far, far away.  Continuing their quest to destroy all of my favorite childhood memories, they’re turning Beatrix Potter into a CGI-plagued romantic comedy.
  • Apparently, I have pinched a nerve in my hip, which does oh, so much for my mid-winter attitude.
    • Getting old sucks.

    I was sober all night too, but I was working, so I have a better excuse. 🙂


    • I don’t know why it just signed me “D”…

      “Pinched a nerve in my hip”… I have that. Turns out to be the (IIRC) Ilio-Femoral tendon, combined with bursitis.


  2. I was sober and beat you to bed…LOL And yes, getting old is NOT for sissies!


  3. Yes, getting old sucks, but it beats the alternative! I’ve about decided that if I ever get out of bed and something doesn’t hurt, it means I’ve died!


  4. I haven’t stayed up past midnight on New Years Eve on purpose for decades. Now, staying up because that’s what my cycle is like at the time, that’s another thing. At midnight, I expect I was taking my nighttime bath, or just drying off from it.
