Musings from the Laundromat: nothing special edition
I’m still working on my ‘controversial’ piece – so I find myself at the laundromat with no topic today.
I have a composition notebook with pages of scribbles and thoughts, sources and notes (I will sometimes handwrite my posts and type them out later) but have yet to complete the work.
I will confess that yesterday, with all my ‘to-do’ items staring me in the face, I ended up ‘to-do’ing nothing. And it was delightful.
I watched the silliest thriller/horror movie – ‘The Sacrament’. Acting was pretty good so I stuck with it, then realized 10 minutes in that it was a direct ripoff of the Jonestown events.
Even ended with the ‘Father’ (in sunglasses and with a drug habit) calling his flock to the ‘special’ punch. *sigh* This was after a helicopter pilot was shot and a note was passed to journalists saying ‘help us”.
How do you pass that off as an original movie?
Still, I had invested those first 10 minutes, I had to see it through.
I apply that in most all areas of my life – if I have invested time in something, I see it through.
Which means today I do the ‘to do’ items and the bath I considered giving Butters is a definite since I spilled some of my coffee on her. In my defense, she’s known me a while and should be wary when I’m carrying ‘spillables’.
But wary she was not, and underfoot she was and so – to the tub i go after trying not to emit ‘bath time’ vibes and hauling her 70 pound wriggling manatee body into the bathroom.
I’ll set a timer for my chores – because I plan to be horizontal a lot today too – don’t want to get too carried away (like Butters will be in a few minutes).
