I've given this a lot of thought, so hear me out. Y'know how area rugs and "throw" rugs tend to slide without any conscious effort by the person walking on them? But when you consciously try to move the rug back into place it won't budge without picking it up? I've pondered the "why" of this puzzlement, and here's what I've figured out...
Sometimes I tend to interpret a statement or concept in a different way than the majority might. This can lead to my making comments that appear tangential to the thread. But they fall right in line with my mental thread, frayed though it may be. I'm sure that NO ONE EVER finds this ANNOYING. Thanks for your understanding and support.
My first extended visit to Denmark was in December, and included the Christmas and New Year's holidays and had a wonderful experience. Ever since then (37 years ago) I associate Christmas with Denmark. I have numerous Danish ornaments and decorations that trigger specific memories. It's downright hyggelig, people!
I just used 24 self-handmade wire-formed hooks to hang ornaments on my Christmas tree. Haven't done this ritual for several years, but decided that it was time to resume. Of course, doing such traditions alone is crappy in many ways, but not doing them is worse. Also, 24 handmade wire-formed hooks! I'm like a goll-durn pioneer!
None of the Founding Fathers were pacifists. No one who fought for the Union was a pacifist. No one who fought against fascism was a pacifist. One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. It's just about declaring whose side your on. Or at least whose side your not on.
Just watched "Clean Slate" on the THIS network. It starred Dana Carvey, and follows a similar premise as Memento, but with comic undertones (overtones?) But the main thing one should take away is that Valeria Golino is the female lead. That's really all that need be said.
Need to finalize my decision on Medicare supplemental insurance within the next several days. I feel like I'm not any closer to a final choice than I was months ago. Because, you know, the Part D legislation was created and approved under a Republican president and so is totally uncomplicated to figure out. NOT!
Finally got around to unpacking Christmas lights and decorations. Nothing too gaudy... just strings of mini-LED lights, a few wreaths, etc. Just as I was ready to start attaching lights to the balcony deck, the wet sleet/snow started. Now it's supposed to continue today and tomorrow, and then dip into single digits for high temps. Bad timing.
Wow. Snowplows are clearing the streets in the neighborhood. They don't usually come out until we've got 3" or more on the ground, but this stuff is so heavy and wet that it's like driving through 6". Still didn't think they'd actually come out. Unfortunately I'll have shovel the end of the drive in the morning. #FirstWorldProblems
Watching Dances With Wolves. It first came out in theaters when I was in my 30's. At the time it didn't register in my head how quickly the world changed for Native Americans during this time. Now, 20+ years later, I realize it was roughly that amount of time between their having autonomy and being displaced nations. Less than half of my lifetime.
