Looks like a made up, Donna finessed non-word word. Yes? Nope, it’s a real live, honest and true adjective.
Languid; apt to be languid; showing the effects of languor. Limp.
I'm rockin' some big time lassitudenous-ness. Fer realies. Given this, I am obscenely happy that it’s Friday. And, I know – DUH, who the fuck isn’t?!

Why so damn gleeful on this frozen, dark, snowy day? Survival – I did some. I withstood the slings and arrows of outrageous TABlessness on Christmas, New Years and the six month mark of his final exit (that was on Wednesday, the fourth, at 6:15 PM). I made it. Now I just need to get through January 10th (his birthday – he would’ve been 75) and the 27th (our anniversary – it would’ve been our 31st).

A good chum has recommended that I find a way to celebrate The Amazing Bob on the 10th and 27th as opposed to just bulling through the sad and/or finding some mondo distraction. This would both honor him and, maybe, buoy my greatly fatigued, sodden spirits. Yes. I believe this is the golden ticket.

For now though, I’m in definite need of a hod or six of high-grade, fan-fucking-tastic escapism.

Will I hit the 10:00 am 3D (!!!) showing of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?
In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
I know I'm not the only one seeing this as an allegory, an inspiring call to action. The Empire is the Republican party. The Death Star is Trump himself? Yeah, too real, too heavy. Also, I'm fresh outta wookies.


Mebbe Underworld: Blood Wars?
The next installment in the blockbuster franchise, UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS follows Vampire death dealer, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) as she fends off brutal attacks from both the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her. With her only allies, David (Theo James) and his father Thomas (Charles Dance), she must stop the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.
This is the fifth in the series – a "franchise" of flicks I’d never heard of. I’m not terribly up on all things young, sexy and vampire-y though. Also too, the descriptor franchise kind of puts me off. Do I get a bucket of greasy fried chicken or a happy meal when I pay the entry fee?

How ‘bout Arrival?
When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team—led by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams)—is brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers—and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.
The snow might keep me inside or, at the least, taking the T versus Bix. If that’s the case, I’ll hit the Y and then come home to watch some faves, like Blade Runner! Possibly I’ll binge watch Star Trek and Star Wars. BOTH!

Yup, now all I need to do is pick up sushi and Pinot Noir and I'm alllllll set!


  1. Damn right we’re going to celebrate Bob on his birthday. Chinese food and westerns it is!
    The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
    Once Upon a Time in the West
    The Magnificent Seven (the original, not the recent paltry remake)
    Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid
    The Outlaw Josie Wales

    Line ’em up, shoot ’em out, chow it down…rawhide!

    PS. I like Arrival a lot, but it's not escapism. See it, but wait till you're in a better frame of mind.

  2. Chinese food and Westerns – GREAT! Let's watch Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid and thanks for the tip on Arrival.
