Netflix movie Telstar: The Joe Meek Story )

Nothing much happened this week because I kept getting up in the morning and going back to bed an hour later to sleep most of the day away. I have no idea why I was so sleepy. I did, however, at one point make the best chicken stock I’ve ever made.

Meme, cause everybody’s doin’ it.

Shortsighted "artists"

I use the quotes because the person that fancies himself a deep and meaningful "artist" is about as glory-seeking and heavyhanded as they come. He also seems to think he has a wolf spirit animal. This is related to the "me too" thing going around twitter and FB. Am I wrong in thinking that this new "art" installation he put up on the main road in our town is rather inappropriate? Oh and yes, I'm the one questioning him on instagram.

1) make the days REALLY REALLY BIG because of course I need to know the calendar day. But not month...

1a) remove the month from the day heading, because of course I don't need to know what month a day is in (it does this even on the "month changes during the week" weeks, going from 31 (for October) to 1 (for November), whyyyyy)

2) make the time of day REALLY REALLY SMALL because of course I don't need to know what times things are

3) decide to get REALLY REALLY CONFUSED about how to handle dual calendar systems, even though it had no issue with that before

note: the "all day events" section is tall and mostly empty in the Old Google Calendar one because further on in the week, I have a lot of stacked all day things; that's my RL calendar. The new version is the fandom calendar, which has much fewer things cluttering it up

Rest In Peace, Roy Dotrice

Roy Dotrice has passed away at the age of 94. May he rest in peace.

I wasn’t sure who he was at first, since I’m not interested in Game of Thrones. That is, I didn’t realize who he was until I checked IMDB and saw that he had played Roger Wyndam-Pryce in one episode (Lineage) of Angel. Now I remember him. Looking through the rest of his filmography, I have also seen him in Nightmare Classics: Carmilla (1989), Tales From The Crypt (1972), and two episodes of Faerie Tale Theatre. He was also Zeus in three episodes of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

I might need to track down his episode of Tales From The Darkside, wherein he plays "Vampire Count Jeffrey Draco."

I would like it to be known that I wish everyone in the present administration in Washington ill.

Netflix movie My Afternoons with Margueritte )

Last Monday I got up in the middle of night because I smelled smoke. It took me about an hour to realize that it was the fires up north. I’m about 80 miles south of the fires. The smell has faded but the devastation goes on.

I had some rosemary left over after making some roast chicken. I’m not that fond of rosemary; it’s so strong, but I wanted to use it up. So I made Rosemary Bread. Mine doesn’t quite look like that.

Then I made Molasses Dinner Rolls. They’re a touch sweet but very tasty.

Women going silent on Twitter today

In protest of Rose McGowan's Twitter suspension (and hence, silencing women) for calling out sexual predators/harassers/complicit folks, today is #WomenBoycottTwitter and I'll be observing. Every bit counts.

Besides, I had to take off work so I can go to the laundromat when it opens today with bedding, rugs, et al. and probably buy a new carpet cleaner. JonJon set a record in the Kitty Barf Olympics last night. I'm pretty sure it was related to eating too fast. 

Weight - here we go again

За последние 2 месяца дико расхомячилась. С одной стороны понятно - сначала отпуск, а потом 3 недели лежания с травмированной спиной, заедание стресса. Тем не менее, весы начали показывать 72 кг, и я наконец опомнилась. Снова вспомнила навыки диеты, взяла себя в руки, скинула 1,7 за неделю (я всегда теряю много в первые дни, особенно после разгрузочных дней с гречкой). Надеюсь, что хватит силы воли вернуться к своим уже привычным 65-66.

А вообще хочу сказать, как же легко расслабиться и вернуться к прежним нездоровым привычкам жрать бутерброды, конфеты, печеньки и кучу жареного. Казалось бы, за 2,5 года, что я серьезно похудела и начала следить за весом, можно было бы уже привыкнуть к новому режиму питания. Но нет, стоит только чуть отвлечься или расслабиться, и тут же всплывают старые привычки :((  Обидно. Сразу ощущаешь себя слабохарактерной, что не очень приятно.

Надеюсь, этот пост послужит мне мотиватором для дальнейшего похудения, ну или по крайней мере точкой отсчета килограммов :)) Буду на него ориентироваться, потому что не хочется быть ни слабохарактерной, ни снова толстой :)

PS: C тех пор как переехала из ЖЖ сюда на dreamwidth, совсем разучилась писать посты. Но надо вспоминать, как это делается, тк в последнее время очень много мыслей, которые хочется высказать. Соскучилась я по блогам.
