Things That Are Making Me Happy
Really happy this cold snap, record-breaking for the number of days when it didn't exceed 20 degrees) is coming to an end. I am not the kind of person that likes to hunker down. Phil even less so.
We got to spend a day with Kevin this week because of the cold. So funny to watch he and and a friend plays games through Facetime online. They each has a computer and a phone to make this happen. They were 15 miles apart but it didn't matter. What a world.
PRAIRIE FIRES about Laura Ingalls Wilder is so interesting. Aside from the stuff you can find in the Little House books, it is interesting to see how both she and her daughter, Rose, forged careers somewhat based on Fake News. Highly recommend it although it is a pretty sad story for most of the book.
I, TONYA was better than I expected chiefly due to a knockout performance by Margot Robbie. I found the mix of humor and serious wife battering a little disconcerting though.
Phil enjoyed LINCOLN IN THE BARDO, about the death of Lincoln's son.
Great to see a huge turnout at the Detroit Institute of Arts to see BOMBHSELL, the story of Hedy Lamarr .
What about you?
