Ugh. I think I slept maybe five hours. It's mostly cloudy here and currently 48˚F.

The next few days are gonna be photo heavy posts, while I adjust and try to get my shit back together – again.

Yesterday, I didn't work. We went out searching for jigsaw puzzles and Halloween candy and a pumpkin. I was startled at how cold the day was, the wind coming in off the bay and biting like frost. Last night, after a very mediocre pizza, we watched the finale of Season Eight of RuPaul's Drag Race, and I was very happy that Bob the Drag Queen won. Somehow, my favorites won from seasons Five, Six, Seven, and Eight all were crowned. If only I were always so good at picking winners. Later, we watched three episodes of Black Mirror. I was extremely skeptical. There hasn't been good anthology television since the nineteen sixties. It's a format that TV briefly excelled at, a very long time ago. But I was pleasantly surprised by Black Mirror. We watched three episodes, out of order – "Fifteen Million Merits" (ep. 1:2), "Playtest" (ep. 3:3), and "Hated in the Nation" (3:6). Both "Fifteen Million Merits" and "Hated in the Nation" are excellent. I wasn't very impressed with "Playtest," though, which was just a silly, predictable horror tale.

It was raw cold here and raining. Like we skipped October and went straight into the butt-end of November. I'm hoping for at least one good day of sunlight before we run out of this month.

grim is the color.
No good anthologies since the sixties? Yeah, it's disappointing.

It's been a Season Three day. There will never be another Zone or Gallery like the originals, but Black Mirror is a clever spin on the climate of today.

I'll check out Black Mirror. Thank you for mentioning it.

Did you carve the pumpkin?
