No, I am not pouring booze into a blender. I MIGHT be indulging in a sip of wine, but nothing that will render my Monday more hideous than it normally would be. But I think a lot of us can identify with the sentiment. If you are not one of them, may I congratulate you on your healthy, positive attitude?
Earlier today we watched The Sting, in honor of Paul Newman’s birthday. Full disclosure: our copy of The Sting is on VHS. We are not completely up to date in this household. I wanted Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, since we don’t have Road to Perdition, but I let Steven have his way.
My tastes in entertainment are skewing darker these days. After The Sting, we watched a rather horrible episode of Dateline on our DVR (we are still working on cleaning it out), which I enjoyed quite a bit. Oh, it was a good episode, well written, no cheesy re-enactments, all that. But it concerned a completely cold-blooded murder of two seemingly very nice people. I spent a lot of time yelling at the murderers through the television set. I like interactive entertainment.
Now I am looking at regular television. Snapped is on. Let the murder and mayhem continue!
