Whoa have I got the social weekend shaping up! Tonight: Happy Hour Art Night at The Saint. I sure hope they still have the blood orange margaritas they emailed me about a couple of weeks ago and are the very reason we chose to go back there this time.

Somewhat to my surprise, Shobhit actually agreed to go watch Moulin Rouge! with me at Central Cinema tomorrow afternoon. I mean, he always loved that movie, and he loves the soundtrack, and he hasn't watched the movie in a long time. Neither have I, actually. I've been trying to find a movie to see there with Claudia but getting her when she has neither her kid around (nothing against the kid; he just prevents her from socializing on weekends she has him) nor other plans is something that necessitates a high-level math degree.

Then I'm joining Ev and her boyfriend Elden and another friend of hers at Cinerama tomorrow night to see The LEGO Batman Movie, which I'm rather looking forward to in spite of my relative disappointment in The LEGO Movie (which I still gave a solid B) and my refusal to see any more superhero movies. This only sort of qualifies as the latter, though, and it's getting good reviews and looks like it'll be fun. I don't have huge expectations so it'll be harder for this one to let me down.

Then Laney is coming back over for another movie viewing in the Braeburn Condos theatre: of Shobhit's screener copy of Arrival. Laney and I had talked for weeks about going to see it a second time, but then the screener arrived and I suggested we just watch it in our condo complex theatre. Why not save the money? Also, even though our little theatre is far smaller than a regular one, it's still much closer to a theatre-going experience than watching movies on the TV inside the condo itself. Hopefully the trick I think I figured out to get the damned DVDs to play last time still holds.

And: I guess Ivan called in sick today and this time he didn't like about it. We've exchanged Facebook messages in which he actually cracked me up -- he keeps talking about how he hopes it isn't fatal and the Lord may come to take him. I guess he's weak and has a sore throat. It sounds very flu-like and I sure as shit hope I don't catch whatever he's got. (Ironically, he recently commented on how seldom he gets sick due to his work as a nurse building his immune defenses.) He's now interested in getting pho' this weekend so we made plans to go on Sunday evening since at this point that was the only time I had available! We'll see if he doesn’t change his mind between now and then.

This of course diminishes what little chance there already was of my posting any regular journal updates again until Monday. So there you have it -- a preview. I know you're thrilled. You're welcome.

And I'm sure you're dying to know what happened last night! Nearly nothing at all. I had stir fry that Shobhit made for dinner. Watched episodes of This Is Us, New Girl, Modern Family (which was particularly funny this week) and The Big Bang Theory. I read a few pages of my library book. Fell asleep fairly early. For the second night in a row, woke up around 2 a.m. because I had to fucking pee. I blame both age and the fact that I keep drinking tons of tea every evening lately. What a pain the ass. Or the bladder, I suppose.

In other news, President Fuckwit is still a fuckwit. I wonder how long until he's impeached? Samantha Bee recently did an interview with a civil rights lawer in which she said "He seems to be sprinting towards impeachment" -- from her lips to the nonexistent God's ears! I've seen some recent stuff online about Mike Pence lying about shit too. I wonder what the chances are of him getting impeached? People are so obsessed with President Fuckwit that this doesn't even get discussed. And Shobhit recently showed me a Rachel Maddow segment in which she broke down a recent poll in which everything was bad for President Fuckwit except for one thing: by a very slim margin, respondents still preferred him as president to the idea of a President Mike Pence.

But, whatever. I'll say it before and I'll say it again: Mike Pence is evil, President Fuckwit is crazy. Evil is easier to deal with than crazy.
