After my last post, waving October goodbye, I can only say, "New month; same old stuff." More work deadlines and more school drama managed. No new provincial election, although they are still counting the mail-in ballots from the election two weeks ago. It won't change the leadership result, but there were around a dozen seats … Continue reading Autumn
It's been an exhausting few weeks and I'll be glad to see the back of October. Work I am not a morning person, nor will I ever be. This was proved true once again by the intense course I took, held over four days from 7:45 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Who thinks up these times?? … Continue reading Bye-Bye October
Continuing on from Part I, here is Part II of my compare-and-contract exercise in response to the June interview in which Richard Armitage responded to questions about music in his life. Since I posted Part I, a couple of other bloggers have also done their take on music throughout their lives (and apparently I was … Continue reading Soundtrack of My Life: Armitage/Me – Part II
Back in June, an interview came out with Richard Armitage responding to questions about music in his life. I was so swamped with work that month that I had little time to do anything but give it a quick once-over. But I keep coming back to thinking about his answers. The interview might seem like … Continue reading Soundtrack of My Life: Armitage/Me – Part I
I love the "David Tennant Does a Podcast with..." podcast. The best episodes are of course focused on people he has worked with closely, where they engage in a lot of banter. A good example is Olivia Colman, his costar on Broadchurch. Even when I don't know anything about the person Tennant is interviewing, though, … Continue reading Would Tennant Interview Armitage If We Asked Nicely?
We've all heard by now that the steroid, dexamethasone, is useful in severe COVID-19 cases, including a current high-profile one. Well, it's also used sometimes after dental surgery, to help keep inflammation in check and promote healing. And what they say about the possible side effects in susceptible people is true! Around six years ago, … Continue reading Me and Dexamethasone
I often feel when I'm posting about vacations or fun times that it seems like I'm posting something blog-perfect (to steal a term from Instagram). Not that what I'm posting isn't real, of course, just that the warts are hidden from public consumption. So, today's post is filled with the regular and irregular ups and … Continue reading Ten Days
https://pixabay.com/illustrations/censored-censored-seal-web-speech-1680266/ I am always intrigued when I see people stridently advocating censorship, particularly even before they have watched or read the work in question. You may have seen the online controversy over Cuties, the new film distributed by BAC Films in France and by Netflix in the rest of the world. To give an oversimplified … Continue reading Wading into Controversy: “Cuties” (2020)
I was very excited this week to receive my new phone case in the mail! These cases are snap-on and, if you pair them with a separate glass screen-protector, do a great job of protecting the phone while making a hidden statement. Of course, given the number of times I drop the phone, the cases … Continue reading Check out My New Phone Case!
