July 2, 2022: My Saturday!

Quiet day today.  As usual, we got up early and hit the Saturday morning farmer's market.  Akemi was on the lookout for her new favorite vegetable, lettage, a cross between lettuce and cabbage that makes for the most delicious cole slaw - but, sadly, they were out this week.  Instead, we picked up asparagus (crispy…

July 1, 2022: The Horror Marathon begins!

Evolution (2016) On a remote island, young boys are subjected to a series of strange medical treatments. One day, one of the…

June 30, 2022: Fireworks!

For much of today, my twitter feed has exuded THIS energy - It started with an innocuous request for some off-the-radar horror movie recommendations - https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1541923492551135232 Which prompted an (I assumed) equally innocuous tweet - https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1542189262350667783 An hour later it was ON.  A lot of people did NOT appreciate this take, many of them inexplicably…

June 25, 2022: Top 10 Recent Fun Twitter Follows!

Over the past couple of years, my social media patience has waned - to the point that my block/mute list on twitter now roughly rivals the population of Djibouti.  Instead, I've shifted focus to far more interesting fare.

June 23, 2022: Being a supportive husband!

Today was Akemi's first class of the eight-session pottery course at Clay Arts Studio.  I, of course, showed my support - not by actually attending the class with her (Perish the thought!), but by accompanying her there and meeting up with her once she was done.  During the downtime in between, I roamed the neighborhood,…

June 21, 2022: You know what I hate?

You know what I hate?  "No, Joe,"you say, rolling your eyes.  "What else you got?"  Well, I'll tell ya - going to a restaurant only to find it closed, even though google AND the restaurant's home page AND its instagram page say it's open.  So, instead of Indian pancakes, we ended up going out for…
