My 800th Post

I deserve a Chihuly chandelier, but keep me away from it, fragile glass and I do not mix.

I want to keep this post totally about me, taking a break from Blogging 101. I went to the casino that is about one mile from my home for the first time last night. I had a date with the guy I met on plenty of fish just over a week ago. This was our fourth date. Neither one of us gamble, neither one of us stepped a foot inside before despite driving by it many times. We ate at a restaurant and left.

I plan on going back as often as I can just to walk around, it is so big and out of the weather. There is plenty of lounge chairs for me to sit in if my legs hurt of if I get too wobbly. There is a covered parking garage that is free to park! Thank you Native Americans. I need to get into walking shape in just over 40 days I am doing the American Heart Association 3 mile Walk. This walk I did last year, but I barely made it. If I can get out of the driveway with my car, I hope to spend at least 1/2 hour walking around. I really do not gamble, not much anyway. I plan on getting my players club card. I will take advantage if they have any free play. I will also wear it on a lanyard so I look like I belong there. I also will support them on occasion by buying a treat at the snack bar. I am not a total freeloader.

I did not have anything special planned for my 800th post. I just wanted to mark the occasion. I don’t think I have ever kept track of 800 anything. I technically did not keep track of my posts, WordPress did. Thank you WordPress for the free platform.

Review of the movie, Anomalisa

I am writing this review, after thinking of joining the blogging community of Movie Addicts Union. Take a look what is happening there;

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/events/movie-addicts-union/

I  watched this movie this past weekend. It was different being it was the first stop action film I have seen that was for an adult audience. There were a couple of funny laugh out loud moments. I thought there were many more moments of just plain drudgery. The main character seemed depressed, and not the kind of person qualified to give self help speeches. That was his profession. He has an one night stand with a woman, Lisa , the only one he sees as different from the rest (the anomaly). Lisa then becomes the same as all the others and he returns to his depressing home where he has no control.

According to Wikipedia this was nominated for awards. I think it leans more towards the forgettable type of movie. I can see it becoming a cult classic though. Is my  Review as drab as the movie?  I think if you are curious to form your own opinion, and you have extra free time see it once and let me know what you think.

My Post From A Prompt

12417817_10208232080981944_6711568241350404560_n

I spend so much time deep in thought…..I get behind on my tasks. My blogging 101 is no exception. A few days ago we were asked to write from a prompt, one that spoke to us. I chose after scanning a few dozen:

A Bird, a Plane, You!
You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:
the ability to speak and understand any language
the ability to travel through time
the ability to make any two people agree with each other

This spoke to me, since finding a superpower is something I have been talking about lately. Of the three choices given, I pick the ability to make any two people agree with each other. The reason I chose this was to get two of the most aggressive war mongering powerheads to come to an agreement, to stop war. Even for a moment, I would hope that I could make someone realize that killing and hate is not the best use of their time. War just perpetuates more war, more hate….ain’t no mortals have time for that. Come on, take off your khakis. slip into some comfy soft jammies and relax with a cool drink and maybe a toke of the peacepipe. Throw on some music, grab a partner and dance. Sway softly, smell the roses, and take a deep breath. Look up in the sky, watch the stars twinkle, make the decision to let everyone have a good day from now on. I could write hundreds of more useful and pleasurable things to do, I am sure you could too. Why would anyone choose war?
