Once and Some Revelations

So, watching Once and Again at this stage in my life I realize how much I have in common with Karen. Played by the incredible Susanna Thompson, the way she portrayed this woman slowly losing her her children (she thinks) as they grow up.

The episode of the first Thanksgiving that Rick and Lily are married, It’s Rick’s holiday with their children.

Her daughter Jessie says mom what are you doing, Karen says she’ll be with friends. Then cancels those plans, because it’s all too much. Sharing a holiday this is uniquely family oriented with someone that is not family, well, it’s too much.

The look that she has, I know it all to well, I understand Karen in a way I didn’t the first time I watched this series.

Every character in this series is just so well done, I really wish it were streaming on something other than YouTube. Some of the episodes are missing and a lot of them are really poor quality. Which is why I had to buy the series. Well the first two seasons.

Speaking of series, let’s talk Stargirl, this series is everything Supergirl should have been. It is pure fun, unadulterated, old fashioned superhero fun.

As you know I really wanted to love Supergirl, but it is so preachy and sudsy and filled with SJW stuff. All of those things belong in a teen angst show, not a superhero show.

None of that is present in Stargirl, so far, I’m two episodes in and am enjoying it immensely.

On a different superhero front, Dean Cain likes two of my tweets in the past week. I believe you all know what that means. It’s just a matter of time.

As

Halloween

Well today is Halloween, come as you aren’t day, this is one of my favorite days of the year. This year I did not dress up, no one else was at work and I didn’t want to look like a donkey. But here is my question when did Halloween become dress slutty day? Every costume is sexy something, whether it is nurse, witch, pirate or princess. Seriously, when did this happen for adult women? Halloween has always been a scary day, the day the spirits come out, not vampires, too commercial for them, but ghosts, goblins and monsters, this is the day for them. So why do we feel the need to dress slutty or sexy? Why can’t we dress scary and have a good time, Halloween has become a day of pressure for women, to be something they really may not be, I am not talking sexy, I mean slutty, why can’t we dress up as superhero’s without the revealing factor of the costume? Why can’t we dress up as nurses without being the slutty nurse? What happened to creativity in costumes? Let’s get back to that, let’s encourage our girls to think creatively, fun, wildly out of the box.
I would love to see more goblins, ghosts, black cats and mummy’s on older girls, let’s make this a scary holiday once again!
I miss my kids being little and dressing up, they were all so stinkin cute, I hope I get to see Tess today; I usually go over and get a glimpse of her costume. Take a picture; give her a hug, then leave so she can go get her candy. Love that girl.
Friday is coming quickly, it is the day Shanon and I will be recording our show for the first time! An historic event, perhaps we need to mark the day with Starbucks, I will have to leave early and find out her favorite Starbucks treat. I have a new dress I haven’t worn; I am thinking Friday is the perfect day for said dress. It is purple, my favorite color, and it rocks, add some black boots and I will rock the look.
