Creaky [Sep. 3rd, 2015|09:09 pm]
The small crickets are getting screechier every night. Now that I can have the windows open early in the evening they are very loud. They usually reach their peak in September, so I have only a short time to put up with them. It will be even shorter if we get some early rain, which sometimes happens when El Niño is as strong as it is this year. A good rain would shut the bugs up, at least for a while. I'm not going to wish for really cold weather to arrive early, even though that would shut them up until next summer, as I've just gone through so much electricity for cooling and don't want to have to start going through lots of gas for heating so soon after that.

For the last few days I've been getting low grade headaches. It could be something out of place in my neck again (no chiropractor until mid-month, so I hope not.) It might also be eye strain due tot he fact that I still haven't gotten new glasses for such a long time (it's been about ten years now.) Of course there's always my old standby explanation, a brain tumor, but though I've been expecting one for ages, so far I've been wrong. I feel like a Republican economist waiting for that runaway inflation they've been predicting for the last six years. Brain tumors and inflation are so unreliable.

I avoided snacking today by having dinner very early, and now I can snack late. The local PBS channel has an hour of English people killing one another tonight. It's a rerun, but I'll take what I can get. I might make some popcorn, as that goes well with murder. Especially when there's lots of butter on it. I could have Welsh Rarebit, as this is National Welsh Rarebit Day. I'm sure that would go well enough with murder, especially English murder (many of the Welsh would like to murder the English, I'm sure.) However, I just don't like the stuff. I'd much rather have a nice grilled cheese sandwich, but not tonight. Popcorn it is! Thanks, Native Americans.

I've never had Welsh rabbit. It doesn't look good in that photo! Fondue can be yummy, though. Popcorn is problematic for me anymore, as the hulls get stuck in my gums and hurt. Hope you enjoyed yours! Which of the murder shows did you see?

It was a rerun of Foyle's War. One of the PBS channels (my cable brings me two) has been showing them for the last couple of months, but they haven't settled on a regular schedule for them so I frequently miss them. Last night's was the first of a two-part episode, so I hope they have the second part at the same time next week.

I've not seen any of that. Let me go look at it at IMDb... Huh, the name Michael Kitchener sounded familiar, so I went back through his credits. Enchanted April! That's where I've seen him. (Lovely movie.) I'm falling farther and farther behind in my cultural savvy, alas.

Quite a good series, set in WWII and its aftermath, so in a number of episodes police work spills over into top secret spy stuff, which is an interesting complication.
