Good morning, whoever-reads-this. Another beautiful sunny day in the neighborhood. A good night's sleep, filled with dreams I don't remember.
Still binge-watching Rita on Netflix. She's kinda like Nurse Jackie- very much her own person, caring, almost objectionably competent- only without the pathology.
More Danish is coming back to me as I watch. Forskellig means different, fornuftig means sensible, at snakke is to talk, a beslutning is a decision(not 100% sure on that one), skole is school..And like most European countries, they love the American 'F word'. Only instead of 'fuck you', it's 'fuck dig'. Dig, pronounced die, is second person singular 'you'.
I'd be lost without the English sub-titles, of course. But I get a kick out of seeing how much I can forstår. That means understand, of course. But if I look away from the screen, it all sounds like Martian.
Yesterday I watched a couple more episodes of Rita, lifted weights for an hour-and-change, practiced Lumosity games, and started reading the Michael Wolff book Fire and Fury in the White House. Could've used some music in there, but otherwise a full day.
I imagine today will be similar, except we substitute guitar playing for exercising. Retirement is great once you get used to all the time you've got. Every day is Saturday.
To the rest of the world, today is Friday, which means to most a 48-hour reprieve from the rigors of work. TGIF and all that rot..Not much to say today, except thanks for viewing, whoever-reads-this. Happy Friday(or whatever day it is in your world)! More later.
