I never thought I’d see the day! I just saw a black guy do an Al Pacino. Ok. It was just a moment. But it was so Pacino’s life language and even tone of voice. Reminded me of Two for the Money.
“For a minute,” mean for ages; longer maybe. Gives new meaning to, “Just give me a sec.” Time be precious, Dude. Ain’t gonna be throwing that stuff around hap-haz-ard-lee.
And having said that the night air just went up-close and siren-loud. An Armageddon moment. A nano second, not a moment. Then it went dead, close by. Maybe an ambulance got there too late. Heaven forbid.
Time. I have a time thing. It is a real thing. I have windows of opportunity for adventures, if I miss the minute, then I don’t venture. Let alone adventure.
And if it’s night here, it is morning somewhere else. So, how do the Shin Dalets know when they have rights to shadow pedestrians? Do they move with the lines as the globe moves. Or are they only night shades? Are they all over? In all time zones?
And as to keeping the Sabbath – it is different everywhere. Does it matter when? I know. Random thought. I don’t know the answer.
Friday night has not had a power outage. Yay! (whispering, touching wood; the night is young).
I am still watching The Start Up. For all the stuff about whites being racists, I always end up loving the black guy. Edi Gathegi is not only the salt, his beautiful face changes with the light and the angle. His eyes … They are sometimes hidden beneath lids and lashes and all you see are the whites. When he gets real his eyes deep dark pools. I would love to go eat dinner and listen to his stories. I bet he has a few.
And his Mama just told him of he takes a buy-out he’s going to be nothing but a rich thug.
I have just got to the episode I started watching with my Storm. I was half listening while knitting.
She got up to make coffee.
“What happened?” She said from the kitchen. “I don’t know…”
“Mom! You have to watch!”
So now I am watching. An exciting series. Will be sad to say goodbye.
