So last week was spent on the road in the city of Sacramento, the state capitol of California, for a work trip. The work part was silly because I didn't need to be there. I just messed around during that part of the day. On the plus side, we finished early each day, so it meant time for other stuff. On the night we

This was a bit of a trying week, or more specifically the last few days. I had been floating along until Thursday, when my cleaning lady asked me if I was ready for Valentine's Day next week. I snapped at her and told her in Spanish I don't have a wife or girlfriend, so it doesn't mean anything. Ever since I have...

Being single sucks, being with the wrong person sucks. There are so many pros and cons to both. If you truly feel like it’s time for some changes, do it! Just don’t let it be because everyone is a little extra lovey this month. 🙂

@mesmeric It isn't just because of the month, but it does show me what the score really is.

So this week marks beginning of February, which is usually where my year basically begins. The last week was work and high school basketball. Friday was a local rivalry. My old school won pretty easily.

Yesterday was a bigger event I go to each year. The talent seemed a bit lower this year. Still a decent day.

The Lakers cheerleaders are part of the entertainment

This has been a lowkey weekend relaxing at home. The past couple of days have been a bit of living on Lonely Avenue, bur I am doing what I can to keep the negative vibes at bay. I went to watch Maze Runner on Friday and Hostiles earlier today. Neither movie will be in my all-time top ten films. Other than that it was lots...

It was a pretty slow week, all things considered. There was the regular mix of work, basketball, and movies.

The big thing that happened at work was one of my staff retired. He is 73, so it was time for him to be off enjoying life. At his retirement party on Friday one of my staff tried to hook up with me. I did not...

Mountains look nice! I do miss Snow sometimes! Only sometimes. 😉

So my first weekend of 2018 wasn't bad at all. I spent Saturday in the mountains at my friend's cabin. It was a fun day of political talk, sports talk, and music talk while we played pool. We can differ on things, but no one gets hurt feelings because we have known each other since we were about six years old. With the...

Started off 2018 on the right foot :)

Last years ended with a whimper, rather than a bang. I went to Hollywood and watched a couple of films before bringing myself back home before midnight. The wardrobes in the lobby were different this time. It was Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep clothes from the movie The Post on display.

They also had one of the miniature houses from Downsizing.

There was an interesting

The marketing for both Deadpool films has been brilliant.

So this will be about the longest weekend ever with holiday parties on Saturday and Sunday nights. I am an introvert, but I am not shy or socially awkward. This means I can handle parties, but I need some time to myself to recharge the batteries. Two parties in two nights might be asking a lot. Hopefully I don't blow up on anyone by...

So it has been a relatively quiet week as I basically went to work and come home to a FIFA induced vegetative state. But the ray of sunshine of was the release of Star Wars last night. While I found the movie just okay (it seemed too formulaic and episodic), it was a decent way to spend the evening.

Around that I found the most

Yesterday became a one ma film festival after I woke up to realize I forgot about the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas show being this weekend. I went over to the Arclight Theater in Hollywood. I watched Darkest Hour, then I, Tonya, and finally The Shape of Water. It was fun since they are not in wide release yet; I felt like a film cognoscenti for...

The long Thanksgiving weekend was four days at home for me. Having no family of my own to spend time with causes that situation. While it may be less than ideal, it is something that is a product of my own doing.

Thursday started with me watching soccer at home. My Arsenal football club managed to lose a game to F.C. Koln, the worst...

So Thanksgiving has arrived to SoCal and the nonsense has started. First of all, it is like summer never ended. It makes no sense to be towards the end of November and have it be over 80°F on my drive home. Global warming is a joke, eh?

I stopped by Best Buy on the way home to pick up a movie to watch over
