Happy Saturday! I had a bit of a meltdown last night. This will no doubt surprise you (as it did me!) but spending two weeks trapped in bed in a small room will eventually drive you insane. I was thinking it would be fun times and being waited on hand and foot and watching as much TV as I want, and it is that, but it is also a wee bit insanity inducing. Who knew! Anyway, Wednesday I see the doctor again and he said that maybe, if I was very very good, he would have new rules for me beyond “lie perfectly still with your foot in the air all day every day”.
Things to talk about!
First, just a general discussion, what is your thing to do when you are going insane? My parents helped me hobble down the stairs and packed me into the car and we drove over to look at Lake Michigan, which was wonderful. And is the exact same thing I have done every other time in my life when I was going insane. It’s, like, the Big Guns Mental Health Cure. What is it for you? Favorite nature thing to look at, or place to go, or thing to read or watch?
Second, ABHISHEK IS COVID NEGATIVE!!!! Yaaaaaay! I was feeling so bad for that whole family, Abhishek stuck in the hospital away from his kid, Amitabh stuck in home quarantine worrying about his kid, Jaya worrying about everyone. I know I know, they are very rich and powerful and blah blah blah. But I’m still allowed to feel sorry for them, right? When they get sick and sad?
Third, Class of ’83 trailer! It’s pretty darn good. I’m not into police movies, but the central concept is really solid. Misfits plucked from training school to be an unbreakable anti-crime force? It’s like The Untouchables! And anything that is like The Untouchables is good. Because The Untouchables is The Perfect Movie. And now I will resist the urge to quote every line. SO GOOD! Oh right, also this film that I am supposed to be talking about, which also looks fine, and Bobby is okay in it.
Fourth, it’s Courtney’s birthday!!!!!!! To help her celebrate, you should say nice encouraging things about being a school teacher, the Sid-Varun romance in SOTY, or why Varun-Alia are The Best Jodi.
Okay, that’s all I’ve got! You chat away, I’m going to look out the window and pretend I can go outside.
