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 roasted tips for me; boiled stalks with mayo for her), garlic scapes, carrots (even though Akemi claims Canadian carrots taste soapy), some celery, a whole chicken (Akemi roasted for lunch), and some ox-tail (I seared, then put in the crock pot with some soy, sesame oil, Worcestershire, garlic scapes, sriracha, brown sugar, honey, salt, pepper, chicken stock, and a bottle of wine to slow cook for the next 8 hours).  Got notes for that script revision so I finally can get started….on Monday.  Took Suji for her cdaily arpet run.  And watched a couple films…

The horror marathon continued with two movies…


The Belko Experiment (2016)

An ordinary day at the office becomes a horrific quest for survival when 80 employees at the Belko Corp. in Bogotá, Colombia, learn that they are pawns in a deadly game.

Thoughts: A terrific critique of corporate culture. What a blast!



Butterfly Kisses (2018)

A filmmaker discovers a box of videotapes depicting a disturbing student film project about an urban legend known as Peeping Tom.

Thoughts: Takes a while to get going, and then never really does.


Today’s Yes/No…

  1. That soup/stew you’re making sounds really good. We’ll need a report about how it turns out!

    That Belko Experiment movie sounds a bit like the series “Severance” on Apple TV, which I starting watching last week. And also finished the season last week, LOL. Very intrigued and can’t wait too see where it’s going.

    Definitely NOT there for the hot dog donut.

  2. Thanks for taking one for the team! 😉 I’ll look up the Belko Experiment. It seems the best of this lot.


  3. OK, thats the first one bought.. Belko Experiment is currently £5.99 on UK iTunes.
    You’re about to cost me a bloomin’ fortune, aren’t you!!?
