I was going a bit stir crazy today. We haven't had sun for four days - a rarity around here. At first, the thought of being holed up at home to take a load off, read, watch Netflix, whatever, was pretty appealing. But after a coupla days, I was going a little bananas. Thankfully, I got out today for a rousing time of grocery getting. It was just nice to be out in the world again, and out of the house, out of the neighborhood. I would suck at being a recluse.
I also got caught up on some housewifery, and I have yet one other errand to run. The toads need a new light as theirs burned out. Seems they've temporarily had to go without their needed "sun" just like us.
Despite the grey skies and chill, it was a nice Thanksgiving week. We got in the sloth time as mentioned, plus enjoyed some good food and family time. I have yet to get full details from Wolfgang, but I'm betting he had a rip roaring good time in Hawaii too.
Magnum and I finally watched Mad Max: Fury Road. I really liked it. I knew it got very favorable reviews, but honestly, it wasn't something I cared about seeing. But he brought home the DVD, so I said I'd watch with him.
What a ride! Literally! But it's beyond just two hours of stuff blowing up, although it is pretty non-stop, gritty action. I just thought it very creative - artistic really. Stuff blowing up artistically? Okay. I'm sure it was all the more impressive on the big screen.
Now back to reality. Of course, the university issued an official statement regarding Officer Swasey's death in the line of duty on Friday, and there was a candlelight vigil last night. I'm sure it will be a rather somber return to classes next week.
