Caturday salutations, GN!

Is that a prophetic raven. Mac? 🙂

We have a “family visitation” late this afternoon (and another 130+ mile round trip, which I don’t begrudge but it is a bit of a PITA on top of everything else given we have to go through ATL).

We’re mostly holding up okay; hope this afternoon will be helpful for all the survivors. (Especially MamaK, BK and FTR, who are my main concerns.)

Thanks, Mac.

I’ll get to meet some of PapaK’s family for the first time; hope it won’t be reminiscent of the Easter dinner scene in “Annie Hall”.

(Actually not at all concerned, but inappropriate humor is one of my coping mechanisms; fortunately both Brenda and FTR are not dissimilar.)

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I’m sure today will be fine (except for the grieving and all, which is kind of the whole point).

=======================

I mostly enjoy Allen’s stuff from before he became a “serious” filmmaker. A thirteen-year-old me quite liked “Take The Money And Run”, a mock-umentary about an inept criminal.

OTOH, the nebbish character he inevitably portrays in the bulk of his films is something I find wearing, TBH.

Just found out that Twitter has stopped translating Tweets which are in Hebrew; translation still available for Arabic, ‘tho.

Fuck Twitter and fuck Jack Dorsey.
