Random Thought for the Week

Is it just me...

I have the hardest time coming up with an idea for a blog post when I'm in the writing zone.

That seems nonsensical, but this week, I outlined a new book and got four chapters typed out. That's pretty decent, considering I put the temporary "The End" on a story last week. 

But then, I try to think of a blog post and it's like I've got nothing. 

So, let's enjoy a random thought from the week...

The Oscars. I don't watch them anymore. I used to, but ever since they became a platform for politics, I skip them. It's like going out to dinner with a couple who are headed for divorce. You spend your whole night on pins and needles waiting for the moment when they verbally rip each other's throats out. It's just not fun. 

And then there is also the divide between the academy's taste and me. The Shape of Water as best picture? The most entertainment I got from this movie was from the reviews. 

On IMdB one person called it Grinding Nemo...another, Fifty Shades of Black Lagoon...

Now, those are clever. The movie wasn't. 

From Amazon, I found this review which pretty well sums the movie up, so skip it if you don't want spoilers:

Chicka gets freaky with a fish. They explain how this is accomplished... even though he’s “flat” down there. She masturbates in a tub. The fish eats a cat. People are tortured. The fish is tortured. People are shot. Bucko rips his own dead fingers off....
This thing is absolutely a crime against humanity.... and fish.

A lot of the complaints in the reviews center around the bestiality issue. That didn't bug me. But it didn't impress me. During the entire love scene sequence I was less interested in the how or even the why of the sex-- I was trying to figure out the engineering of the scene. Can you really flood a room with a towel?  And if you could, you're still gonna get electrocuted. 

Fish sticks, anyone?

Time for my small things check-in. Thanks to our hosts Lexa and L  .G  for this weekly reminder to look for the good things in life!
-WV schools are back in session. I don't mind having boy #4 (Conner) home, but he does need to be prepared for college next year. 

-Tuesday was boy #2's  (Cole) birthday. 

-Spring break for WVU starts this weekend, so boy #2 and #3 (Carter), will be home for a week.
