And here is yesterday's stale Hell, third from the arbitrarily determined last:
Note the shitty little patch of snow in the shadows. Very cold again today here.
There was a little work in the early afternoon, but then Kathryn and I headed off to the East Side and the market. For dinner, we made cornish hens with Zante currants, apples, celery, pears, walnuts, and white onion, along with colcannon and soda bread. I don't often drink beer anymore, but we had Guinness and Newcastle. It was a fine dinner. Afterwards, we watched the latest episode of The Walking Dead, "The Grove," which was, undoubtedly, one of the grimmest things I've ever seen on television and a new highpoint for the series. A little later, we watched Shane Black's hilarious Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005), which I think counts as an overlooked gem. There are moments when the chemistry between Robert Downey, Jr. and Michelle Monaghan is reminiscent of that between Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn in Bringing Up Baby (1938). I read "Middle Miocene remains of Alytes (Anura, Alytidae) as an example of the unrecognized value of fossil fragments for evolutionary morphology studies."
