Happy Wednesday!!! I have an exciting busy day today, and then a boring day the next two days. Oh wait! There’s still the Friday movie to look forward to! Okay, it isn’t all bad.
Reading: Have you ever semi-suspected that website companies are run by idiots? My sister sent me this article that basically confirms, yes, website companies are indeed run by idiots. They have one good idea, talk a lot of tech speak, but are actually dumb. Kind of reassuring, and I am going to say it is Indian film related, because a lot of movies tend to show their hero working for a website like it is the awesomest thing ever. Or having him quote famous tech founders like they are inherently better people. They are NOT! https://www.wired.com/story/ebay-employees-charged-cyberstalking-harassment-campaign/
(really, read the link, lots of hilarious details like how much money they spent on hotel meals)
Watching: I watched Dangal with a friend last night, we all agreed that the first half of the film with the little girls is the best bit. I watched two Pedro Almadovar movies this weekend, super good, I’m glad I put off watching his movies until now so I have so much left to enjoy. Oh, and I started a new BBC series, Line of Duty, extremely tense and extremely good and there are 5 seasons (yaaaay!). But they are each only 6 episodes (booo).
Thinking: I’m gonna have foot surgery! Maybe. If it all works perfectly. It’s semi-elective surgery so it’s not covered by regular insurance until after deductible, so I had to increase my insurance this year which is costing me another $3,000 a year. Which means, I absolutely HAVE to have the surgery this year because I can’t afford to have these crazy premiums again next year. Oh, and also my foot is beginning to really hurt, that’s the other reason I want the surgery now instead of waiting until things settle down. Anyway, I was going to have surgery in March, but obviously that went on hold, so now I have to see the primary foot doctor again and get new x-rays, then see a doctor-doctor and get confirmed that I am healthy enough for surgery, then get a COVID test within 3 days of the scheduled surgery, and if I pass all of that, I get to FINALLY get my gosh darn arthritic toe taken care of. The last time I saw the doctor, I got the impression that somehow I have the toe of an 80 year old woman. Feels kind of like a witches curse, like I dipped my toe in the waters of aging while the rest of my body remains young. Anyway, it HURTS. And all my shoes are ugly.
Listening: As I said, I just watched Dangal again, so obviously this song:
Now, question for you! It’s Karisma’s birthday tomorrow! What is your favorite Karisma song?
I’m gonna go Jaanwar because I love Jaanwar, “Mere Sapno Ko Rajakumar”
