Shot to Sunshine

Yesterday I watched this clever video, The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon, and laughed and laughed and laughed. But by the end of the day I was feeling like the protagonist of that tale. Constantly aggravated. Nothing dire or traumatic, just too many little things going wrong, with the constant irritation making it hard to relax and stay positive. Last week I’d enlisted the service of a pest control professional, to take care of our bee problem. He sprayed but the bees are still living in my bedroom window and a few crawled their way into the house. Yesterday I discovered one of my headlights had gone out. I replaced the other recently, so that makes sense, but I had just replaced them both six months ago. This Mazda goes through headlights like no other car I’ve had. Then I got home to find my roommate had not moved his things out, as he was supposed to. Just as I was about to call him I received a text, indicating he didn’t arrange for a moving truck until September 2nd. Grrr. And to top things off, my incontinent cat upped the ante by peeing on a stack of my son’s homework and my bills. His lockdown in the bathroom will begin today. Fun.

Bonus: Oh the places we could go. Atlas Obscura.
Plus: Following the Station Fire has been surreal. So much has already been lost. Losing Mount Wilson Observatory would only add insult to injury.
And: Roger Ebert and the plague of movie trivia.
