03:04 pm - Monday musings
Things I am thinking about today:

*It is very hard to accessorize a black eye. (Don't ask, it's too painful to talk about. But I'm mostly fine.)
*I am sorry to say that only Sleepy Hollow's return tonight is going to get me through the next six hours.
*The opening eight minutes have been up on Hulu (for those in the US) and they are beyond adorable.
*My earworm for today is "Rich Girl" by Hall & Oates. You're welcome.
*Why, one wonders, does a musical group or similar choose the ampersand rather than just any everyday ol' 'and'? Is it to make searching through search engines extremely annoying?
*I managed a page on a project this morning, which is my equivalent of NaNo. One page a day, that's all I ask this month.
*A page a day, and a rocking good time at "The Day of the Doctor." This weekend, whilst feeling poorly, I comforted myself with Doctor Who, as one does.
*And now, back to work, lala.

May you muse well, may you have a wonderful slide into Tuesday. :)

Ouch at the black eye.

I did gardening yesterday, and now I have a tiny cut on my eyebrow (revenge of the rather feeble clematis).

Yikes for the cut on your eyebrow! Clearly we live in dangerous times.

Cheers and hugs, Stevie.

Very sorry to hear about the black eye but glad to hear you're mostly fine.

Thank you, K! I am achy and I look like I've been boxing, but I'm hanging in there. :)

Hugs and good thoughts! (Did you watch the National Theatre 50 special?)

Sorry to hear about the boxing look. That sounds painful.

Yes, I did see the NT 50 special and got quite sniffly with nostalgia. There were quite a number of things I'd seen, from "Guys and Dolls" to "Othello", and many performances I wish I'd seen. It was a great show. Have you seen it yet? It was on tv here but I know it is/was being shown in cinemas worldwide.

J was lucky enough to go to a private talk Nicholas Hytner gave at his workplace and said he'd never heard anyone so passionate about his work and the theatre in general.

I haven't gotten to see it! (No cinema close was/is showing it.) However, I might have another avenue of acquisition....)

Cheers!

I should use that other avenue. You might have to suffer Simon Russell Beale but there was some excellent Alex Jennings :)

It is an unmistakable dark-purple eye, actually. So I did accessorize with a purple scarf. ;)

Hugs and a better Tuesday for you, Gwynne!

Oooh,ouch, ooh. So sorry, and hope the healing has begun.

I would be so proud of a page a day. And glad you had the best of Doctors.

The magical internet told me that black eyes take a couple of weeks to subside, so I'm just waiting.... :)

Hugs and happy Tuesday!

Yikes! for your eye and I hope that mostly becomes completely very, very soon.

I'm trying to remember if I had thoughts today, but I think I got through the day without contemplating a thing. ;-)

Some days without contemplation are necessary. :))

Hall and Oates is better than that Fox song that has been an earworm for week. THANKS! (and really, I mean thanks) {G}

May Wednesday treat you well….

Hall & Oates DOES work better than that other song that shall not be named. :)

Hugs and a lovely Wednesday!
