The Days That Were – Sept 19, 2017

Posted: September 18, 2017 in Midlife Crisis in Maryhole

Back in the land of the almost living for a few days and it is warm and dry. Someone stole my grass from the backyard while away but the bastards left the leaves! The front door wont lock as ground is so dry house has shifted. I still found it though. Luckily there is no climate change to impact further. In good, but puzzling, news the garage door still needs 4 attempts to actually open fully. Speaking of which, happy to report bowel movements are back to normal after all the imbibing. Sexie Coffee has gone and Oliver’s “real food” is about to open. For real. In meantime they have a coffee truck in car park but good news is the drive through opens back up on Thursday. The bad news is it is organic coffee.

Have booked our flights for short visit to Melbourne in December. Much like Premium Economy once having had taste of exit row seating hard to go back and realistically in the scheme of things $30 is not a big slug for the benefits. Of course only after booking you realise it means you cant check in online 24 hrs before hand now which wont help my OCD nature. For domestic flights I can probably cope, for international I could be in fetal position the week before. Speaking of latter we are hoping to see the Favourite Son and wifey when traversing the Middle East on way back from Ireland Fling in Feb 2018 but at present UAE banning all flights to Doha. We land in Dubai of course and could catch a flight to Oman, a dhow to Bahrain and then a camel to Doha but going to be tricky with only a few days in between flights. Have already crossed camel ride off bucket list. We may be stuck in that dump Dubai for a few days – the perils of international travel eh.

Good to be back in a state where they cover all sport and not just AFL. Seriously SA is worse than Victoria. Great to see Leishmann win the BMW and JD hovering. Its Spieth’s to lose though. No shocks in the one day in India. Looks like a Melbourne and Roosters final with the former winning. Broncs no chance, Cowboys a rough smokie to at least get to GF

In TV land a lot to catch up on but first The Emmys. Colbert was good but really a bit tired of all the political comment especially from “celebrities” .A great opening skit as always. Winners were generally deserving with a couple of notable exceptions. Handmaid and Big Lies deserved recognition. Baldwin did not (weak field) and really Veep is the new Modern Family and JLD – as much as I love her – is the new Sheldon. Its a good character but nothing new and never evolving. She gets cruder each year and thats about it. Again, not a strong field apart from Adlon and maybe Janney but really 6 times ? And of course the twittosphere erupted because Nice Hole didnt give a shout out to her two Cruise missiles. Those kids probably dont have a TV in their camp and are about 25 I think hence dont “need tucking in at night” which was the thrust of her argument. Speaking of thrusting what was the deal with her and Northman, E? I find her constant need to declare her love for Keefy both nauseating and suspicious and I think her kiss with Eric tells us who she wants strumming her G Chord. The lasting image of the night though probably was Hanoi Jane at 79

She has always looked good of course but the hair was odd. Immediately had flashbacks to I Dream of Jeannie and the sudden desire to rub something , wishes or not.

Luckily I then saw Lily Tomlin and the moment quickly passed
