elayna: (Alex as Superman)
Took the dogs back to Dad's around lunch. Skittish reappeared as soon as I was home, so she was watching from nearby. Visitor didn't show until dinner time, but then he spent the night inside and was eyeing my bedroom. He's thinking the bed looks nice. Dad got home around 4:00, so the dogs didn't have long alone.

Because I care more about the emotional health of our pets than 217 Republicans care about the physical health of 24 million Americans. This remains crazy to me.

Anyway, I watched Carefree last night, the 8th Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers film. Fred was a psychiatrist who agrees to see Ginger, who is the fiancee of a good friend. She keeps breaking their engagement, so clearly something is wrong with her mind. The depiction of how psychiatry works is bizarre. Fred anesthetizes Ginger, who does wacky, destructive things, so then later on, he thinks it's good to hypnotize her, so she does more wacky, destructive things. And she needs to have dreams for Fred to interpret, so eats strange foods, including lobster with a dollop of mayonnaise. Ugh, I don't even like to imagine such a waste of excellent food.

But they dance together and separately, so that is always gorgeous to watch.

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 this morning, which was fun. I want a baby Groot now, though do I need another knick-knack? Thank you to folks who pointed out that there are five separate scenes during the end credits. If you haven't see it, stay until the very end!
