Quickies

++This is what it was like when I used to babysit. (i.e., no supervision..I was a bad babysitter. Almost Billy Bob level bad.)

++Thinking back fondly about a movie a couple of years back that was mostly forgotten and largely unpopular and how much I loved how original and uneven it was. One of the few things to enjoy about getting older, learning to embrace your own personal unpopular opinions and even accepting imperfect forms of entertainment. I think it's courageous to be a little out there, creatively, even if it doesn't all pan out.

++Speaking of which, I listen to Badge by Cream all the time, and it's not a very good song, lol. The fun part is when he mentions "Mabel" and always whispering to myself "F-cking Mabel!"

++He's already been The Bachelor, The Doctor...what's next? The Butcher, the Baker the Candlestick Maker?! Perhaps tinker, tailor, soldier, spy?

++The mark of a good ensemble cast is when you see a lil of yourself in each of the separate characters.

++Have said in the past that even though I am frequently on Twitter, I'm far too sensitive to actually use it. So I was a little startled when I found out that someone famous that I've long admired blocked me! At first I was miffed but then I was like, this person or their handler is aware of my existence? 👍? It's all very personal yet removed, modern and Ingrid Goes West and a reminder that I need to stop shooting off my mouth here on my blog.#cantstopwontstop

++Been trying to find the Will Shortz puzzle that was on NPR this weekend, the one with the scrambled letters that gets you a chance to play live on the radio and more importantly the chance to chat with the effervescent Lulu Garcia Navarro. Couldn't find it online and spent the next half hour searching, curious to see if Shortz had ever been terminated and if the accompanying headline said "Shortz fired."  I adore him and wish him no ill but if you were his boss wouldn'tya kinda constantly fantasize about handing him that puzzle? (H/t to my husband for supplying that scenario.)
