'Twas a rough night. Three medium-sized trees went down in the dog park. Haven't been to the Common, but expect there's a fair bit of carnage, there.
I hauled my trolley out of the way to let this very old black man with a lovely gentle face pass more easily on the bus,He blessed me and wished me a Happy New Year. Cockles warmed.
Had IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE on for wallpaper. It's one of those films that everyone loves, but I find a bit sickening. The guy should have got out of that hellhole and had a life. It always pissed me off when he saw how his wife would have ended up without him, too..."She's an OLD MAID!" IMO she would have been lucky. I fell asleep halfway, too, and dreamed of George and family arriving in Paris, no doubt through snatching all the money given to him by the grateful townsfolk.
Channel 5 showed that bloody colourised SCROOGE Yet again, but I still like it. When the reformed Scrooge goes nervously to his nephew's house, and, egged on by the sweet-faced little maid, joins the party, I always have my seasonal *snurt*...I saw part of the animated uncanny-valley version the other day, with Jim Carrey playing virtually all the parts. God alive, that is UGLY.
I had been rather looking forward to THE WHALE, but it was rubbish. Takes some doing to render such a hair-raising RL adventure quite so bland and boring.
