As the cabin closes in..

Wall Street JOURNAL: Storms trigger rash of cabin fever »

As said yesterday.. I began feeling like Jack Torrance. Thankfully roads got cleared in time to make a grocery store run. It felt amazing to pay too much for groceries just because I was out.
I think there are times that some people impose cabin fever on themselves. There seems to be this thought, every time it is about to snow, that if people don’t get their bread and milk they are going to quite literally die. 
I have seen firsthand people panic and stock up on things, even though they live about 50 steps from the front door of a major grocery store..
I spoke to a local restaurant owner who told me he does not close when it snows, and since everyone else does, his business is typically better during storms. Smart move.
I myself get hungry for Chinese food during snowstorms. I can be confident that regardless of the day or weather, Chinese food will always be available.



STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…
