I haven’t felt well all weekend and this morning I feel downright sick. Thank God I worked on Saturday so that the pressure is off me this morning. I still have to go to work. I will see what is on my schedule tomorrow, maybe there is a sick day in my future?
Yesterday I rented Nebraska because I had wanted to see it all winter long and never did get to it. It had a nice twist at the end, but I found the movie dismal and depressing. I hope to God there are no people actually like that, people with no relationships and no kindness in their lives.
I watched the Oscars last night for a while. I am haunted by the vision of Kim Novak. She was confused, her face is a horrifying plastic nightmare, rather muppet-like. She was “all that” at about the time that photo of me and my brother was taken. Time is cruel. But Matthew McConaughey was so kind. I always thought he was attractive, and I was thrilled he got best actor for Dallas Buyers Club – but now I love him for being so kind to her.
Please dear Lord, as I age, please give me the grace to be more like June Squibb and less like Kim Novak.
Weird prayers for a Monday. Maybe He knows why things so distant from me effect me so profoundly.
