Scorpion

(no subject)

On this day in 1917, Russia's Czar Nicholas II, his empress and their five children were executed by the Bolsheviks. Also, in 1945, the US exploded its first experimental atomic bomb, in the desert of Alamogordo, NM.

Coincidentally, Corey Feldman turns 32 today. And happy birthday Silverfox!

Beard trimming was successful last night, though it's no simple process. And it's dramatically increased time spent shaving, which is an interesting trend.

Last night was also a disasta of canasta proportions. I did learn (more or less) how to play the game (and that I need a cheat sheet of the obtuse rules.) However, poutine was achieved, which was a prize. The one-sided canasta game was abandoned in the face of Harry Knuckles and good conversation, and following the retirement of the majority of the crowd, we settled in to watch Jan Svankmajer Alice, which was every bit as messed up as his Faust. Afterwards, restful napping.

Tonight, Assault on Laundry.

Huh. New Tarantino film, Kill Bill, to be released as two movies.
