Monday's Missives

  • Last text message I received: I have a fibroid on my uterus and will have a sonogram. I have a lump in my breast and will go this morning for a mammogram.
  • Zac is swinging a yo yo around over his head. One of us are going to get knocked smooth out.
  • The Seven Samurai is an old, critically acclaimed movie that is regarded as one of the best ever made- the critics aren't wrong on this one. It is one of the best movies I've ever seen and definitely one that makes me wish I was more well spoken to convey its awesomeness. It's up on HULU. The Magnificent Seven was a direct remake set in the American west and was a homage to Kurosawa.
  • Change is good- intellectually I know that is almost always true, but like most humans I'd rather take a beating than make any big changes.
  • I was invited to go to the Uproar Fest this past weekend. I declined so I could rest and clean my house.
    Why yes this a picture of Ronald Reagan riding a dinosaur and shooting a sub machinegun with an RPG launcher on his back. Why do you ask?
  • It would have been good to see Papa Roach though
  • It's tough getting old.
  • Arise Zombie Reagan, arise and save us from ourselves.
  • At work we have to sort and quality assure the packaging and labeling of sputum samples to be sent to the state lab. My nursing buddy and I turn each other on to different music we each like on youtube while we check and document our work.
  • I call it an interlude of music to count and sort spit by.

I love The Magnificent Seven, but I can't stand Seven Samurai. Must be a cultural thing.

Hey R- Yeah, I get that. It's probably a little unusual that I really, really like both (with 7Sam barely edging out Mag7).

RWR really did that - he was that good!

I wish Robert Lamm would re-write Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan...
