Saturday Night Open Thread

I’m undecided on the new Doctor Who lead actor, Jodie Whittaker.

Why?

Nothing to do with her talent. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen her in anything. No, it’s with her casting.

I don’t mind a female Doctor. But, I despise stunt casting, which is what this feels like.

But, what’s wrong with casting women in a role just to cast women in a role? What could go wrong?

Here’s one answer:

Ain’t nobody got no sense no more.

I love animals.

Some are cute to look at. Some taste good.

So, I love animals.

But some people go too far.

I enjoy the YouTube channel “Today I Found Out.” You probably figured that out by now.

Sometimes, they tell about things I didn’t know. Sometimes they tell about things I already knew. But, they’re usually interesting.

This has nothing in particular to do with the video I’m about to post. Just thought I’d mention it.

Over at Nuking Politics, Les posted a little bit of satire about blaming Tiki Torches on the Charlottesville situation.

Only, the previous day, Tiki Brand actually felt they had to issue a statement. It’s hard to satirize events that are beyond satire.

I just don’t know. I am depressed.

You know what might cheer me up? You posting something funny. After all, it’s Tuesday Night Open Thread. Share your funneh. Or anything, really. It’ll all be good.

Got another Disney World trip coming up in a few weeks. Might be my last one for a while. Or not.

I wrote about that over at my little blog.

While I’m pondering that, it’s time for you to share what you’ve been pondering. Or doing. Or just share a joke, a link, or whatever. It’s Monday Night Open Thread.

I listen to classical music regularly while driving. I spend 8-10 hours a week in my car, sometimes more, so I do get to listen to a lot of classical music. So, when I saw a post over at Harvey’s, I knew I had to challenge myself by watching and listening to the video. I didn’t get them all, but I did okay.

If you’re a fan of classical music, even a casual fan (everything you know you heard on Bugs Bunny cartoons), you might enjoy it. I did.

Now that we’ve had our classical music fix, what’s on your mind? Got something you want to share with the group? Now’s the time. It’s Sunday Night Open Thread.

It was kinda warm today. It wasn’t exactly hot, with the temperature not quite hitting the mid 90s.

Still, there was a little bit of sweat pouring off yours truly, as I spent some time outside doing grandparent stuff with the youngest.

The good news is, I didn’t sweat enough to cause a massive stink.

The bad news is, I might not have known if I had.

I used to go to local Minor League baseball games a lot. But, with the Columbus Catfish and Savannah Sand Gnats leaving for other cities, there isn’t a local team for me.

I miss going to the games.

I don’t know if this is just a southern thing, but it’s how things are.

I’ve seen James Gregory in person, and I don’t think I ever laughed so hard. How hard? He stopped and asked me if I was okay.

Like I said, it’s probably a southern thing.

My son used to enjoy Might Morphin Power Rangers.

I never understood why. Kids.

Of course, I never know the whole story behind the show. I just thought it was some stupid show.

Now, I know the story behind the show. And still think it was some stupid show.

I haven’t had a Coke in some time. The longest I have gone without a Coke, since I started drinking Cokes, was early in the Army, when I went around three months without one. Well, since December, when I was hospitalized twice, I have only had one Coke, that that was only about ¼ of a Coke, and that was in March.

If you know how to read a calendar, you know that March was around five months ago. And, if you know math, you know that five is usually a larger number than three. So, I’ve now exceeded the time in the Army when I went without a Coke.

That Army thing was in the U.S., not during any deployment. I was able to get Cokes during all my deployments. Not every day, but I never went three months without a Coke, other than my first few months in the service. At the end of that three months, I was looking forward to a Coke. Right now? Nope. I’m not drinking Cokes because I’m not wanting a Coke.

Yep, Harvey posted this one time before, but a whole slew of things happened and that post isn’t currently available. So, I don’t mind posting it again.

Harvey has been studying women’s fashion.

Why has he been studying women’s fashion?

I don’t know. Go ask him.

What else would you like to talk about? I mean, Harvey has the whole women’s fashion thing going at his blog. So, what else you wanna talk about?

It’s Monday Night Open Thread. Your turn to direct the conversation.

I have an iPhone. I like it. But, there are some things you can’t do with an iPhone that you can do with Android.

One is to set a different default navigation system. Which I wish I could do.

I use Waze most of the time. Even though it has sent me to the wrong place, so has Google Maps and Apple Maps, negating any advantage there. The social features, such as others reporting objects on road or cars stopped beside the road, or the speed limit listed on the map, are handy. So, Waze is my go-to navigation app.

Good news for you if you’re an Android user and like Waze. You can set it as your default navigation app.

I’m in a love-hate relationship with TiVo.

The current TiVo flagship device, the TiVo Bolt, looks stupid, and I’m not buying one. I posted about that over at my little blog.

Oh, well.
