No, not that Cosmo. A different Cosmo. A better one.
ST:TOS Saturday MeTV Edition - What Are Little Girls Made Of. Been awhile since we did this one; it's, what - number 8 or so? Enterprise is on a mission to find Dr. Corby where 2 previous expeditions have failed; surface temps are -100° tho underground caverns were mentioned in the last communications. Dr. Corby is found alive and underground; events proceed from the discovery of androids as well in the caverns including Roc, left behind by the Old Ones | Ted Cassidy is Roc
Hooper, if you're still reading, we just made the Cosmonaut. Holy crap! That's a lovely concoction. Cheers!
Dear dog, that's a good drink. Thanks, Hooper!
I've got crap tons of apricot jam from last summer's two-week rain (reign?) of Blenheim. That might be interesting.
Just one comment, a Cosmonaut would never drink gin. A cosmonaut would be a shot of vodka with a small glass of sour cherry juice on the side.
Ugh. We drove down here last Sunday. My cat, Maru, (at home, in theory, being cat-sat like the other cats in the house) has been missing since Thursday. Since I am the only human she likes, and the only human she will respond to, do I need to make a 294 mile drive this afternoon to go find her, lock her in the mud room, make sure the cat-sitter knows not to let her escape, and drive back down here? I'd really rather not, dammit.
Taking the grans, wife, and mom to out to a Greek cafe for a nooner brunch. I adore Greek coffee.
Doctors Without Borders:
<< Medical staff in Gaza are so inundated by the sheer mass of patients arriving that the surgical board used to keep track of the weeks upcoming surgeries has been wiped clean and replaced with these words:
WHOEVER STAYS UNTIL THE END
WILL TELL THE STORY
WE DID WHAT WE COULD
REMEMBER US >>
Cosmo Topper is best Cosmo.
My wife Lisa loves cookbooks and loves the late, great Vincent Price more than life itself. I done scored me a vintage copy of A Treasury of Great Recipes, a cookbook Price and his wife Mary wrote back in 1965. I have never been what anyone would call good at Christmas gift-giving, but this year will be my even-a-blind-squirrel-finds-a-nut-on-occasion moment!
Well, I'm waiting for my husband to move his pickup from the front of the garage, so I can go to the grocery store. I think he's waiting on me to make a move.
It's a standoff. That's okay. I got all day. I can even wait until tomorrow.
Rid of the hazmat from Dad's house.. 295lb worth..
Maggie Haberman Says Trump Team Feels Good About Docs Case Because ‘Trump Appointed’ The Judge — Believes She’s Benefiting Him
I was watching MSNBC last night and I learned something from Ali Velshi. Apparently I missed this when it happened.
Trump gave a speech recently and thanked Hannibal Lecter for supporting him.
Apparently he got Hannibal Lecter confused with the actor who portrayed him, Anthony Hopkins. Except Anthony Hopkins didn't say anything supportive of Trump. Another actor who portrayed Lecter is Brian Cox, who has become an American citizen. He calls Trump "a fucking asshole."
In the dialectics of contemporary media, we can guess, when we see this headline in the NYT, that it is some Israeli attack:
They Ran Into a Bomb Shelter for Safety. Instead, They Were Slaughtered.
but upon reading, for a while:
Nearly 30 young people took refuge inside a grimy bunker on the morning of Oct. 7, hoping the reinforced-concrete shelter near the border with Gaza would fulfill its promise of protection.
But just after 7:40 a.m., when a group of Hamas assailants, armed with assault rifles and grenades, attacked the shelter near Kibbutz Re’im in southern Israel, the very characteristics that made the tiny fortress a refuge from incoming rockets turned it into a deathtrap for those inside
I'm rewatching The Last Ship while I get some eBay shit done. I loved this show when it first aired (give me any kind of end of the world stuff, and I'm there), but I'm having a bit of trouble not tearing up now, because the fucking "Immunes" are reminding me of all the RW militia type assholes running around my country right now.
