Alright we are going to mix it up today. We are going to get whimsical and lay off of the sermons and just go with whatever pops up, hopefully part funny and part poignant,
Are me and James Cameron the only people who didn’t like Wonder Woman? I feel very alone in this. Would anybody watch this if Leslie Jones were in the titular role? It feels like hollywood was saying”here you go people, here is your kick ass heroine but there’s a catch it is a pre-requisite that she be played by a literal beauty queen. We are Hollywood and average women in leading roles wearing bathing suits is just not acceptable. Okay, got that off my chest.
I just saw Professor Marston and the Wonder Women which is about the creator of Wonder Woman. This is a really good movie by the way. I recommend it highly.
Playoff baseball is so great. Yankees and Astros go at it for game 3 tonight. I am almost proud of my 49ers. We are a record setting team. The first team in the history of the NFL to lose 5 straight games by 3 points or less. If it were soccer that would not be impressive but for football it is an amazing feat. We suck but at least we compete.
The AA meetings at my fellowship have been rather enjoyable as of late. The meetings are getting really small. They are peaceful though and full of good optimism and wisdom and we are all getting along great. The guy who chaired yesterday had a great voice. He sounded like he could be on the radio.
Caught a break today at home. My mission was to stay at home until the doggie steps got delivered. All I knew was that they would be delivered sometime today and by 8pm and I needed to be there when it arrived. Luckily for me it arrived at 10:45. Life is good. I think that’s what it says on my phone as well.
Yet again I am caught struggling trying to quit smoking. It is going miserably but I take solace in the fact that I am still trying. I got the not drinking thing down really well thanks to God but this smoking thing is quite humbling. Maybe I just need more humility in my life.
By the way if you are feeling tense don’t worry. It is just a step above ninths. Next time somebody says you look nice smile and say “thank you. I am nice.” Remember we are meant to listen more than we are to talk. That is why we are given one mouth and two ears. Remember when you were a kid and you dropped a piece of food in the dirt and somebody would say “God made dirt, dirt don’t hurt”Well guess what it don’t taste good either.
In case you want some movie advice I recommend the following movies from this year. Here is something for everyone.
- Get out
- The big sick
- Planet of the Apes
- Victoria and Abdul
- It comes at night
Alright that’s all for today. I hope you enjoyed.
