Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Let's continue: What are you reading? What are you watching? What are you working on around the house? What are you chastising yourself about because you haven't worked on it? What have you done that's fun or relaxing or enjoyable? Fill me in.
If you read my first Whatcha Doin' post, then you know what I'm reading.
I've been watching The Comey Rule, which consists of four episodes on Netflix. It's a Showtime production that aired not long before the 2020 election. I thought it was excellent. It was especially interesting to see how James Comey's descriptions of his meetings with Donald Trump compared with Trump's statements about their interactions. Comey is played by Jeff Daniels, while Brendan Gleason has the odious task of portraying Trump.
I would characterize Trump and his staffers as deliberately obtuse. I say deliberate because they seemed to have no interest in correct information or understanding how the government does business. Of course, Trump fired Comey from his post as FBI Director, to which he had been appointed by President Obama. He seemed to think it was Comey's job to support Trumpland and its lies rather than to be loyal to the American people and the constitution.
Andrew McCabe (played by Michael Kelly) became the acting director of the FBI following Comey's departure. Trump infamously fired McCabe the day before he was to retire. I noticed he was back in the news recently because his wrongful termination lawsuit led to the reinstatement of his pension and other benefits.
You know my work around the house has included cleaning out my closet. Now I'm partway through cleaning out the coat closet in the foyer. It looks so much better already. I don't know if I'll also get to the storage closet in the foyer. It might have to wait. I'm just plain getting tired of cleaning out closets.
I'm chastising myself––not too strongly––because I haven't made all the appointments I need to take care of before the job begins. But tomorrow is another day, and this afternoon, my hair is my priority.
Fun, relaxing, and enjoyable can all be applied to weekend visits with Sweet Cheeks. He no longer speaks of going home Saturday night. He simply stays. Recently as I lay in his arms, he said, Everything is good between us because we love each other.
That's pretty hard to beat.
Infinities of love,
We watched The Comey Rule last year and felt the same; Thing 45 and his minions were all complicit in being traitors to this country.ReplyDelete
We have several home projects lined up ...new wood floors, and a redo of the kitchen, cabinets, counters, floors and such.
I an re-reading The Alienist by Caleb Carr and also reading I Have Something to Tell You by Chasten Buttigieg
I hope you'll share photos of your re-dos.Delete
Glad things are going well with Sweet Cheeks!ReplyDelete
Aw, love. What a wonderful thing for Sweet Cheeks to say.ReplyDelete
It felt wonderful.Delete
I often wonder if James Comey hadn't re-opened the e-mail probe on Hillary Clinton might she have won the presidency? I think she probably would have. If she had this country wouldn't be in the toilet and deeply divided because of one Donald J tRrump. Without a doubt the worst President this country has ever had.ReplyDelete
I believe it made the difference. Based on The Comey Rule, which is based on Comey's book, after careful consideration he believed he had no choice.Delete
Glad things are going so well for you two!ReplyDelete
Facts don't exist for Trump. Information is merely something to be manipulated to gain advantage.
When Trump was President, even the Canadian newscasts would lead with some ridiculous pronouncement/behaviour of his. 😝 I sure hope he doesn't run again in 2024! Cleaning closets is so exhausting, but it feels great when it's done, doesn't it? Sounds like you and Sweet Cheeks are in a good place! 😎 To quote Roxy Music: Love Is The Drug💖ReplyDelete
I think he'll run. I keep hoping he'll get hit in the head with a golf ball and die.Delete
My to do list is endless and my memory is shit, so the list keeps growingReplyDelete
I think to do lists are always endless. Something gets checked off and two others are added.Delete
I read your post about the book. It sounds pretty interesting, a bit long, but interesting.ReplyDelete
I have not seen the Comey Rule. Might have to check it out.
Glad things are going well on the romance front!
I've read about 200 pages of the book. I love it.Delete
I'm so glad you have a good partner in your life, Janie. Savor every moment.ReplyDelete
He's not really a partner, but I enjoy the time I have with him. He comes and goes from my life.Delete
