We watched the Walter Mitty movie tonight with Ben Stiller.......I know, it has been around awhile, but I have never been a big Ben Stiller fan and well, you know how that goes. For some reason it seemed like the movie to watch tonight......so glad we did. It was the best thing I have ever seen Ben Stiller do, a wonderful adaptation of the story......a really beautiful funny film. Shawn Penn as a Life photographer was awesome.
I haven't taught a class since Tuesday, so glad to be going back to work tomorrow. My energy is back to normal today, a few moments of serum sickness, but so far nothing bad. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Already the second week of November, last week as I drove home from work I saw houses already decorated for Christmas........I'm thinking did we do away with Thanksgiving? and radio stations playing Christmas music......this is beginning to feel like a Twilight movie, jumping from Halloween to Christmas. I suppose there is just not that much money to be made on turkey and the fixin's.
I am sure there is a hefty profit in Halloween costumes and candy and decorations and then of course, Christmas brings a spending frenzy. It seems the only emphasis on Thanksgiving anymore, is the Black Friday that follows it. How sad is that.
Wow, I fell down the rabbit hole......but Christmas decorations the first of November tend to push my buttons.
Wishing you all a happy work week, enjoy your Monday.....may the traffic gods be with you.
