Although it wasn't a bad week, I can't say there was much making me happy. Having lunch with an old friend and coffee with a newer one (Steve O.) were both nice occasions. I saw a so-so movie ON THE BASIS OF SEX-again biopics are so difficult to make artfully. Watching the ever graceful Armie Hammer flip crepes was delightful though. The streaming shows we are watching: CASE, & GET SHORTY are sort of depressing. Not just sort of. I am getting tired of characters who will pick up a gun without hesitation and in the next scene be humorous or lovable. I know this is Elmore Leonard's world but I find it inauthentic or troublesome at least.
With what is going on with the President and the climate, it is hard to find things that make me happy.
What about you?
