Whirlwind weekend 048

The point was made by the host of Laser Rangers on Saturday, saying:

“Well, someone who I won’t name forgot to bring the scheduled movies for the month. So we wound up with a couple of random picks:

  1. The House with the Clock in its Walls’, a children’s fantasy set in the 1950s, starring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett
  2. The Secret War of Harry Frigg’ (1968), a Paul Newman WW II comedy about a recalcitrant, recidivist draftee Private with a remarkable penchant for escaping the stockade, who is assigned the task of enabling the escape of 5 generals being held prisoner by the Italians.

I enjoyed both of them quite a bit. Too bad we didn’t have ‘Harry Frigg’ to show last year instead of the distinctly inferior ‘What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?’”

“‘The LORD will fight for you, (Exodus 14:14)
and you have only to be silent.’”

“First we’re going to Twin Peaks,” I stated our itinerary matter-of-factly, “and then we’re going to Spanky’s (Card Shop),” which Josh found unintentionally hilarious; I seem to be when I am not really trying. After Laser Rangers, I met Scott and Josh to play Magic: The Gathering, Josh and I found some more cards and later optimized my two decks while we watched ‘Rick and MortySunday.

“Today — and every day — Kansas City’s failure to honor MLK is embarrassing,” while “Kansas City holds several events to honor MLK legacy,” so how can that be true?

Can’t Get Much Worse

What millionaires are doing that you’re not,” well, they probably don’t err three times the day after Christmas, perhaps I need a new Word of the Day from Dictionary.com – neoteric – modern:

“And now, O Lord GOD, you are God,
and your words are true, (2 Samuel 7:28)
and you have promised this good thing to your servant.”

Friendship is Magic: The Gathering, Part 2

Much time has passed since I last played ‘Magic: The Gathering,’ yet my friend Travis has an interest in learning the game, so elder statesman Scott has been teaching him; we all met up after I gave a ride to another friend to the bus station downtown, and hung out with Josh. We were at the restaurant a little later than usual and attracted attention from some fellow players, who just might join us in a couple weeks.

For today, a Word of the Day from Dictionary.comNoelChristmas.
And you can count on me to be there by your side by Lucy-tanAnd you can count on me to be there by your side by Lucy-tan

“And the angel said to them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.’ (Luke 2:10-12)”

What do you know 046

“Y‘all. Tell me your good news. Something. Anything. Just be positive.
Comments. Go,” entreated a friend on facebook.

My initial response was how certain Democrats are no longer in office, but I realized one of my shortcomings, which is better than it sounds. I was looking at a screenshot from the RoosterTeeth community group on Facebook and could see only a spelling mistake and did not understand the context of what was being said; comparing a raven devouring something to the depiction of a Velociraptor in Jurassic Park.

He who argues with God, let him answer it.’”

Dia de Los Muertos

Google honors colorful Mexican holiday: How Mexico Celebrates Its Annual ‘Day of the Dead’,” while Bennigan has seen Coco, I have not; we are going to Thanksgiving with Laser Rangers, yet I have no idea what circumstances conspired against me last year.

‘Doctor Who’ Christmas Special Scrapped After Writers Run Out Of Ideas,” so permit me to a Word of the Day from Dictionary.com – univocal – having only one meaning: Their last Christmas special was mostly horrid; the companion last series was only pushing a social agenda and had no depth, character, or personality; the series premiere was lackluster so I’m pleased to have missed the second episode because I have given up on ‘Doctor Who’ entirely.

“And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
to which indeed you were called in one body.
And be thankful. (Colossians 3:15)”
