A car in our local grocery store parking lot....how about that homemade spoiler?
I woke up this morning starving......Romeo has already taken the dog for a walk, so I stumble down the stairs for coffee and see the bowl of strawberries I didn't eat at dinner, still sitting on the counter. They looked dull, and a little dehydrated, but I ate them anyway. I wouldn't call it fine dining, lol. I then grabbed a piece of multi grained bread (Romeo bought it, which surprised me ~ he used to call stuff like this bird food) and poured a thin layer of lavender honey on it and scarfed that down too. I guess I'm ready to take on the day.
Just heard a news report that people living "downwind" from the Trinity bomb test site that were exposed and are now plagued with cancer have ~ once again ~ been denied compensation from our illustrious government. Is this America?
Have been reading "A Handmaids Tale" ~ mostly because I've been hearing about the hulu original series (I don't have hulu & don't plan to subscribe) ~ I've likely read a third (or a fourth?) of it, and the story is interesting, but the book bugs me. I'm an avid reader of fiction (who needs reality? we're living it ~ and I rarely read biographies) and admit to all who might care (ha ha) that some of my favorite reads are pure entertainment, and not very "literary". I think the reason I'm not thrilled with the book is the constant and unrelenting descriptions. I want the story, not a paragraph long description of how the room looks, smells, the lighting, the dust motes....I want the story. I can fill in my own backdrop. I think my reaction is due to my lack of patience. I will keep reading though, because I'm cheap, and already paid for it. There's another clue to my personality :-) Plus, I'm really bugged by the fact that these women just do what they are told. Come on, there has to be a way! I think I'd rather die than live in a society like the one described in that book. =shudder=
Enjoy your Friday ~ Love, 365
Well! I did receive my final grade for the summer class ~ an A. I read through some of the final projects (which were posted on Google Drive, and truthfully took me a few minutes to figure out how to download my paper), and was impressed. One was particularly good. I can't figure out how I achieved an A in comparison, lol.
**Word of warning when scrolling through blogs (by hitting the "next blog" button....I ran across an extremely pornographic blog, so be aware. I was surprised, then surprised that I was, because the world is full of that kind of stuff. There was a warning, but I've seen those before and figured they might use a few choice words, but no. Sheesh.
