Tuesday Tangents

While I was waiting for MacGyver to get up yesterday morning I went for a 3 mile walk.  It was an easy paced little jaunt around the neighborhood.  An hour later I could barely put any pressure on my right foot.  I have had a minor bit of shin pain the last few weeks but nothing major.

I have no idea why or what happened but I’m going to take a break for a few days and see if it gets any better.  This should make living with me a real treat.

To celebrate his birthday last night I took MacGyver to a local cinema café to see the movie Glass and have dinner.  We loved the movie.  We have both seen Unbreakable and Split but Unbreakable was so long ago that I barely remembered it.  Split however was one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.  James McAvoy is amazing.

Is there more than one man in this picture? I think not.

If you’re an actor and you are up for an award against James McAvoy you probably shouldn’t even bother to attend the awards ceremony, unless you want to congratulate James McAvoy of course.

Yesterday afternoon we watched Fyre Fraud on Hulu and at the end they talked another documentary on Netflix, Fyre: The greatest party that never happened”, which I’ll now need to watch because I didn’t realize there were two.   I had read a lot of the first-hand accounts of what happened at the festival and I knew that Billy McFarland was in prison but I really wanted to see the documentary.  If you have any doubt about what kind of influence social media has over people, watch either one of those documentaries.  Also, if I hear hashtag anything for the next day or so, I might kill you.

Have you ever purchased something based solely on what you saw on a social media account?

If you have, were you happy or disappointed with your purchase?

Tuesday tangents

By now y’all are probably sick and tired of hearing about my breathing issues, I know I am.  But here’s the thing, it’s hard for me to run and breath and yet I still manage to force out a ‘hello’ or ‘good morning’ to the very same people that I see every damn day on the neighborhood trail I run.

And what do I get in return?

Resting Bithc Face

That’s right, resting bitch face.  What the hell?  What’s so hard about a simple ‘hey’ or ‘good morning’ back?  How about you just nod for Christs sake?  So annoying.

Yesterday I was watching the morning news and the announcer was talking about Selma Blair, who was recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.  She then mentioned a few other actors who also have the disease.  She mentioned ‘Jack Osbourne’, ‘Montel Williams’, and ‘Britney Spears’ sister Jamie-Lynn Sigler.’

what the hell is she talking about

At first I thought she was going to say Jamie Lynn Spears but then she said Sigler and I’m all like, ‘Damn lady, did you never watch the Sopranos?’  And the worst part was she said it like 5 times throughout the news cast and no one ever corrected her.  I was seriously mortified.

Have you gotten your lottery tickets?  I bought four.  Two for Mega Millions and two for Powerball.  I’m almost embarrassed to tell you that I had to call my mom and my sister to find out what the multiplier is.  I said almost.  I’ve played it for the past week or so and so far I believe I’ve gotten one number so obviously, I’m going to win.

Okay, it’s time for you to go off on a tangent, what’s irking you?

Tuesday Tangents, man flu…oh boy

MacGyver woke up this morning feeling a little under the weather.  Well, actually, he came home yesterday feeling a little under the weather and continues to feel bad today.  It’s nothing major, he’s just a little run down and feels crappy but in man speak, he’s practically dying.

And I’m over here like,

Stay out of my space bitch

I was sitting here in my little bubble just minding my own business doing some data entry and watching the lovely Tom Payne on Kelly and Ryan.  I got up to go to the bathroom and came back literally 2 minutes later and the lovely Tom Payne had turned into a long bearded fat man with a bow and arrow in the middle of a field somewhere in the mid west.

What is this crap?  Why am I forced to watch hunting shows and gear heads all day?  I hope this is a one day thing or this illness of his may quickly turn fatal.

I went to the dollar store last night because well, I go there practically every day but that’s not the point, the point is I got the cutest little dish towel.

dollar tree find

Who says you can’t find quality at the dollar tree, that right there is a gem.

It looks like we’re going to be spared from any major wind or rain from Hurricane Michael and I have to say, I’m extremely grateful.  There is nothing worse than picking up storm debris including trees that weigh a shit ton.  No thank you.

I am saying prayers for all of those who will be affected and I hope that if you are told to evacuate you’ll heed the warning and do so.  Things can be replaced but you only get one life so cherish it and get the hell out of dodge.

hurricane michael

The only good that has come from this hurricane is the temperature change.  It has been so much cooler the past few days.  I have been loving it.  I’ve even waited to run until quite a bit later in the morning and it wasn’t bad at all.  It’s still humid as all hell but it’s nicer.  I sure am looking forward to winter, all three days of it.

When you get sick are you a baby or a soldier?
