I. Both days this weekend met my yardwork criteria: they were overcast and approximately 80, so I allowed myself to go outside. I see now the criteria should be expanded to require the weather be overcast, 80 or less, AND have some actual oxygen molecules in the air that are not bound to hydrogen to make humidity. At any rate, both days I was out doing yardwork, and Mom-in-my-Head was pleased.
II. Both days this weekend were capped off with delightful movies, both starring Frances MacDormand. First, she was in Burn After Reading, looking like this:
Then the next night she was in Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, as a completely different human being.
(The very best part of Burn After Reading was the CIA superior: J.K. Simmons.
III. Generalissimo Michael Jackson is still dead.
I cannot wait for Tuesday, when Michael Jackson is buried and the news channels are once again dedicated to covering the news.
