Happy 2018!

 I'll quote what I just said about Last Jedi in my own comments:

 I think I enjoyed it more the second time, without all those pesky "what's going to happen?" thoughts running through my head. If nothing else, it's really pretty to look at. And I didn't think the middle was especially saggy the second time, either.
There were still a good many people in the theater, but nothing like the crowd that was at Jumanji last week. Probably most of the kids have to go back to school tomorrow, come to think of it.

(I was trying to hurry so I could make the Holidailies cutoff at midnight, but then I realized they're unlikely to have the cutoff be Central time, anyway, unless they have a rolling cutoff that uses each person's own time zones. I'm just not going to worry about it.)

We saw the aftermath of a horrific-looking wreck on the way to the movie theater (a car basically underneath a pickup) and when we came back through three hours later they were still clearing it up. It looked like they basically had cut the car that was on the bottom apart. I'm trying not to speculate about what happened there.

I stayed up until well after daylight the last few days. I have to go back to work on Wednesday so I need to shift my bedtime at least a little earlier than that! I have no sense of time, that's basically my problem. Sitting here in the living room facing away from the windows I don't even necessarily notice that it's getting light until I get up to go to the bathroom or something.

Which reminds me, I don't really make resolutions, but I want to stop feeling guilty, somehow, for being a night person. People get so judgy about it, and I'm sick of that shit. I like to sleep in the daytime, so what. (I'm not really talking to you guys, of course.) Oh, did I mention that my sister is now on the exact same schedule? She sleeps til the middle of the afternoon just like I do. Apparently at her previous job - which she has now quit - she was mostly working evenings, too. We used to seem so different when we were younger but now we are exactly alike in a myriad of ways, so much so that it's slightly alarming. (What, is my entire personality just genetics?)

Sean has been a night person practically all his life. Some days I'm lucky if he rolls out of bed by 4 pm. It has been a little tough for me to adapt, but I find I'm staying up later and later, and getting up later, like around noon. I'm retired, so I have no schedule. It's gotten so it kills me to have to get up for a morning appointment. If you sleep during the day, it helps if you can sleep through thunderstorms, door bells, lawn mowers, just about anything. Sean can. It's amazing.

So, now that Holidailies are over, will you still post here often?

You bet I will, especially as baseball season rolls around. Although, this year is going to be a rough one for me. First, we lost Jose at the end of 2016, with no hope of ever replacing a talent like he was. Then in 2017, we saw many records and outstanding performances, but had virtually no pitching to support all that spectacular offense. Then, along came Jeter and we no longer have most of that offense. I'm the first to acknowledge the importance of a solid farm, but now our few remaining really good players don't want to be here for the rebuild. Fortunately, they are not in positions to demand a trade, so maybe with a few more additions, things will look a little better by opening day.
