I don't want to play anymore

What a tiring day. And it's only Tuesday.

I think the bug that's going around it trying to get me. I feel headachy sometimes and other ... functions. So, big surprise, I'm going to read and the get some sleep.

Things that are on TV can be skipped. Not a big deal.

That's it. That's all I've got today.

Oh come on! It's the end of day, the clock is ticking, and I'm tired!

Have a good evening

Much love,

Can't unsee it

Wow, the season premiere of The Walking Dead was traumatizing. Really gruesome.

TWO deaths. Really bad deaths. Why do I watch it?  I didn't watch the show in the first season though Steve did. It actually isn't about zombies. It's about how people deal with and survive a catastrophic event. Are you a good person or not? What if you encounter people who are not? What if the only way to live was to be a bad person? What would you do to live or those you love to live? And this show doesn't sugar coat it. It's ugly and unfair. 


Soooooo, here we are and Monday looks rather good in comparison.

I don't really have anything on TV tonight. Conviction at 9 but I won't stay up for it. I'll watch it tomorrow via Amazon Instant Video.

I worked a bit on my project. I did some cleaning. Made a vat of soup. I started a book from the digital library. I may stay with it, I may not.

BRIMSTONE by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. 5th of 16 in series featuring Aloysius Pendergast, an FBI special agent.

Art critic Jeremy Grove is found dead, his face frozen in a mask of terror. His body temperature is grotesquely high; he is discovered in a room barricaded from the inside; the smell of brimstone is everywhere . . . and the unmistakable imprint of a claw is burned into the wall. As more bodies are discovered with an identical manner of death, the world begins to wonder if the Devil has come to collect his due.
Published in 2004, it has 696 pages.  Kinda appropriate for Halloween coming up.

Have a great day

It's the weekend! With both hands .... er, paws.

Television on Sunday.

The Walking Dead season premiere. It's going to be a tough one. We left last season with a cliff hanger ... who of our eleven people did Negan kill with his baseball bat?

There is no question that it happened. It happened. In the graphic novel, it was Glenn who has been on the show since the first episode of the first season. I'm predicting it will be him on Sunday. It will be the most tragic -- he and Maggie have a baby on the way and he is a beloved character. We'll see.

Here's the official info:  "The Day Will Come When You Won't Be"
Negan's actions will haunt the surviving members of Rick's group forever.

At the VERY SAME DAMN TIME is NCIS: Los Angeles. Of course. One of my two favorite shows. The same time. "Ghost Gun"
A navy machinist with high security clearance is murdered on the roof of a downtown high-rise building. Anna Kolcheck partners with Callen to investigate. Meanwhile, Sam assists Hetty in the on-going mole probe.
Here's a sneak peak with Deeks and his mom (Kensi is still in a coma): 

We don't like Anna. We want Anna to go away.

Ahem. Luckily, I have the season purchased on Amazon Instant Video so I will watch that and Poldark (season also purchased) on Monday.

Poldark season 2 episode 4:
George backs Poldark into a corner; the law targets free traders; Caroline decides between Unwin and Dwight; and Francis goes missing.

Otherwise I have cleaning to do since I didn't get to do any last weekend with the funeral and so forth. It's been a long week and a half with not a lot of down time so I'm hoping to relax and have some time to myself.

Please everyone have a safe and lovely weekend.

Much love,

Is it Friday yet?

Oy, I'm ready for a weekend already.

Currently also reading THE MASTER OF DISGUISE: My Secret Life in the CIA by Antonio Mendez.

From the author of Argo comes an unforgettable behind-the-scenes story of espionage in action. In the first ever memoir by a top-level operative to be authorized by the CIA, Antonio J. Mendez reveals the cunning tricks and insights that helped save hundreds from deadly situations. Adept at creating new identities for anyone, anywhere, Mendez was involved in operations all over the world, from "Wild West" adventures in East Asia to Cold War intrigue in Moscow. In 1980, he orchestrated the escape of six Americans from a hostage situation in revolutionary Tehran, Iran. This extraordinary operation inspired the movie Argo, directed by and starring Ben Affleck. The Master of Disguise gives us a privileged look at what really happens at the highest levels of international espionage: in the field, undercover, and behind closed doors.
Published in 2009; it has 382 pages. 

So I'll probably read tonight for a bit and go to bed.

It was cold this morning when I walked the boys, 28 degrees. But we're supposed to get to 61 today. This is the weather where you don't really know what to wear or you anticipate doing two different outfits -- one for the morning and one for the afternoon.

And here's a not-so-comforting fact:

Have a good night

Debate prep

Yeah, I'm not going to watch the debate tonight. I have Arrow at 7. Woot!

"A Matter of Trust"
Green Arrow is forced to battle new drug dealer Garret Runnels, who is terrorizing Star City, after Wild Dog strikes out on his own to take the dealer down but quickly learns he's not up to the task.

Oh yeah.

Still plugging away on my reads. Last night I really didn't get a whole lot read because sleep was way more important.

On the TV front, I don't watch them on first run on regular TV, but I have enjoyed Conviction (with Haley Atwell) and Bull (with Michael Weatherly) as episodes available on Amazon Prime. This Sunday will be a problem. The season premiere of The Walking Dead (where we finally find out which one Negan killed of our guys) is at the same time as NCIS: Los Angeles. Bah.

But one will survive this via Amazon Prime. :)  Thanks.

Have a good one!

I'm tired of this day. I need a new one.

Man, today I'm just wiped out. Perhaps the previous days are catching up to me.

So tonight I'll feed the boys, made Steve's dinner, have my dinner, maybe watch Flash on TV, read and go to bed. See? So much to do. There's a whole list.

Still reading the same stuff but moving ahead slowly.


Ok, going a little political here because the word has to get out. Project Veritas has been undercover for the past year with the Hillary campaign. They're releasing videos, one per day of the corruption they've found. You must watch these. Two so far. The Mainstream Media establishment isn't cover this. I don't care who you're voting for, this is illegal and needs to be stopped or we've lost America.

The first was out yesterday and already one of the people in the videos has been fired. Woot!

Have a great day

Much love,

Yay! It's over

The funeral went well on Saturday. People have mostly left to go to their homes.

Friday night was five hours at the visitation. Saturday was the funeral and then family dinner until 9pm. Last night was dinner with other family until 9. I'm tired.

Steve once again is having dinner with his brother tonight. Not me.

Reading. Sleeping.

Much love,
