TWITL – week seventeen – half a century

TWITL – week seventeen – half a century

Happy Birthday to me! I spent the day off from work. I watched Captain America Civil War then Thor Ragnarok. Just had to get my MCU fix because if this was any other year, I would have probably been at the movie theatre watching the latest MCU movie. I did get out of the house…

TWITL – week fifty-three – farewell 2020

TWITL – week fifty-three – farewell 2020

I’m starting this on December 31, 2020 but not sure when I’ll post it. We’ll see how it goes. I’m never one to call a whole year a total negative, so I’ve never understood the people who take a whole twelve months and say that it was all crap. I want to ask them– so,…

TWITL – weeks 45, 46, 47, 48 aka TMITL November 2020

TWITL – weeks 45, 46, 47, 48 aka TMITL November 2020

It’s Monday, November 30th and if I actually post this today, it’ll be a miracle! Yes, I wrote for National Novel Writing Month again and I wrote just a smidgen over 50k words, the last of them written yesterday, November 29th. I was below the pace for most of the month but thank goodness I…

TWITL – week forty-one – fall break

TWITL – week forty-one – fall break

We usually have two weeks for Fall Break but with the world the way it is now, the breaks for fall and spring are just one week each this school year. It’s not so terrible, of course. Not everyone even gets a fall break. It sort of saves me some vacation time since I only…

TWITL – week thirty-two – last week of break

My latest Funko arrived this week. It’s The Child (aka Baby Yoda until someone reveals that little critter’s name) from The Mandalorian. I actually bought two so that I could bring one to work. He’s so cute! I might have to bring home a Funko or two from work. It might be getting a little…

TWITL – week thirty-one – it’s already August?

TWITL – week thirty-one – it’s already August?

MOVIES Jojo Rabbit – Is it weird to say that a movie about a young boy indoctrinated by Nazi ideology is rather sweet and heartfelt? I enjoyed this movie very much. It was funny and ridiculous and gut-wrenching and hopeful. Very well done… Doctor Sleep – We watched the director’s cut of this movie, which…

TWITL – week twenty-nine – this and that

TWITL – week twenty-nine – this and that

I took a couple of days off this week but it still felt like a long work week. It just feels so unsettled and my usual ways of settling myself are a bit out of sorts right now. It’ll pass, I know. School isn’t going to start in hybrid fashion as before decided. Distance learning…
