See you next week. Hopefully I’ll have some amusing anecdotes to share with you. I have fun and funny things happen to me nearly all the time, and have fun and funny thoughts truly all the time, as most of you know. I guess I have to become one of those people who carries around a notebook and writes things down, like comedians do to work up new jokes. In the meantime, these are some things I can remember that I saw:
Watching: The French Open. If you read this early enough you can see Nadal try to beat some nice Nordic guy, one who doesn’t have much of a chance! 9a NBC. Sorry, Coco, yesterday Swiatek looked unbeatable. And she was. I can relate! To the being soundly thrashed part, that is.
Watching: Barry. Still really, really funny and getting really, really dark
Watched: both The Staircase (Colin Firth, Toni Collette) mini-series and The Staircase (the bajillion part documentary its based on) which is like shot for shot the same as each other. Except the docu has updates from the past many years, post-original-verdict. Spooky!
Watched: Senior Year (I think I told you that?) While it seems to have garnered absolutely terrible reviews, I absolutely loved it. I love Rebel Wilson. Period. I don’t think folks (guys who write reviews and go on Rotten Tomatoes, maybe?) ‘got it.’
Ditto, Watched: Zhosia Mamet in a similarly adorable, but more indy film, ‘The Boy Downstairs.’ 20-somethings, how will they figure it all out?? While a small, kind of linear story and film, it was very New York City-y, and I loved it, too.
Guess I’m just filled with love all around. Just don’t speak to me after a ego-gutting tennis loss.
