As predicted, the Fall nip in the air is gone for the nonce. It was back to 90 yesterday. It was the 51st 90-or-above day we've had this year -- definitely hotter than normal. It will be cold soon enough. I can wait.
Sometimes when you're clicking through the channels, you'll come across something that catches your attention, often an old movie, and you feel compelled to stop and watch it. I did that yesterday. I was lying on the couch in the late afternoon, thinking about either taking a nap or finding something on TV to watch. When I got to the SciFi channel, I found Stephen King's "The Stand" playing. That's one of those "can't look away" things -- and I ended up watching the first six hours. "The Stand" (the book more so than the movie) and Robert McCammon's "Swan Song" are my two all-time favorite "Apocalypse" novels. I did read Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" and enjoyed it, but it doesn't approach the scope and breadth of the other two I mentioned. It's a personal preference, I know. Do you have an all-time favorite in that genre?
People are funny, you know what I mean? And I'm not talking funny ha-ha (except when it is). I've seen the damndest things on a couple of boards the past couple of days -- flaming, whining, puffing up and flinging barbs and accusations and outright lies. It never fails to flabbergast me how some purported adults can revert to the silliest juvenile tactics at the drop of a hat. It's amusing to observe for a while ... but then you feel like you need a bath. It makes a terrible impression on folks and leaves a bad taste in the mouth. But ... comme ci comme ça, I suppose.
