By the time you read this, I’ll have been at the beach for three days, which means I’m already two-days’ worth of sunburnt and completely over the actual beach. But with the beach comes a beachfront condo equipped with air conditioning capable of reaching -27°F and a 1000″ TV so I’M FINE.
Since was some doubt about cable and streaming availability, I spent six weeks refining and downloading my to-be-watched list for almost two full weeks.
I cheated and already watched all of Season 2 of Hacks; it’s as good as the first season, though I think it’s a much more melancholy sum of its parts than the previous go-around.
Next up is Pachinko and the second season of Physical (Apple TV) then Under the Banner of Heaven (Hulu), and I’ve got the second season of Russian Doll (Netflix) on deck after that. Plus Jerry and Marge Go Large (Paramount) with Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening as professional lottery winners. That should get me through tomorrow.
After my eyes finish crossing from too much television, I’ve got a 2021 podcast I recently discovered for when it’s time to walk the dog (the condo came with a dog-sitting component, and it’s fun to have a different dog for a bit, one who hasn’t gotten wise to my methods of biscuit-bribery). “Love is a Crime” is a true crime/love triangle story about Hollywood mogul Walter Wanger and Joan Bennett and features Jon Hamm and Zooey Deschanel as those people. I’m almost chemically allergic to true crime podcasts—and there are soooo maaaannnny of them!—but this one does seem promising. We’ll see!
Anyway. There’s more stuff to knit to than ever, y’all. I’m either going to get every single WIP finished up over the next two weeks … or none of them at all.
