A Bunch of Random Musings.

I've been unemployed for eleven days now. Each day is much like the last. I look for a job, (I'm not finding much in my "field" that pays enough to cover my bills, or even amount to more than I'll make on unemployment). I spend about an hour and a half each day writing (every morning after the kid gets on the bus instead of going back to bed). I've watched a lot of Netflix and Hulu. Not reading as much as I should be.

The Mega Millions jackpot is up to $550,000,000 this week. It looks a bit daunting with all those zeros. I have my single ticket that will be a waste of a dollar. How about all of you? I've been thinking about the kind of things I would do with that kind of money. Aside from investing, paying bills, fancy house, trust funds, taking care of family, charity, travel - you know all the boring crap everyone says they'll do if they ever won the lottery. Aside from that, what would you do? Me, I'd buy a bunch of custom made ball gowns, the kind that require a lot foundation garments, and only ever appear in Disney cartoons. I would wear them around the house while I go about my mundane life.

Has anyone seen Rare Imports? It's a delightfully dark Christmas movie from Finland. You should watch it. Now. I'll wait for you to come back. It's not like I have to be anywhere anytime soon.

I've also watched Love Actually twice this past week. Really, this movie is terrible. I understand this, and I usually don't go for rom-coms, but there's something about it that gets me. It might be the British accents. I'll watch anything with a British accent. And yes I know there are like a zillion different accents in Great Britain, but part of the fun for me is to try to guess what kind of accent it is. Does it sound like the Ninth Doctor? The Tenth Doctor? Anna from Downton Abbey? Lady Mary from Downton Abbey?

Anyway, back to Love Actually, someone made a "trailer" for Love Actually 2. I would watch that movie so hard.


 I suppose, if I'm going to be posting videos today, I'll also have to show you Commander Riker sitting down in a weird way, over and over again:
