Sigh. I'm not looking for a great holiday season this year. Too many people are gone.

So many memories of around the tree with so may packages for me, my sisters, my father, my mother... All around the tree in the living room and now even that living room is gone.

Today I feel lucky that I still have one Sister on this side of the grass.

Everyone else is gone. Some in terrible ways.

But I do hope that most haven't lived long enough to be in a place like this. And for you guys and everyfuckinbody else I wish you the best for the season. Take the memories of these days and imprint them deep in your psyche to have and hold you dear in later years.

But don't let this shit get you down. The past is only the past while the future is everything. Please hold the ones you love and hug your asses off with everything.

A bit of light fun on Disney+ with Percy Jackson and the Olympians

They just dropped the first two of eight installments which I enjoyed.

Not marvel and pretty wholesome for the most part. Good to watch for anyone who might want to shut their brain down for a bit after hours of news.

In DC for all practical purposes. Story seems to be developing and is certainly concerning.

Bronze age religions blowing each other into oblivion

Shouldn't be a surprise.

Just wish that the biggest mouths could find their "promise" first.

I apologize for my current feelings at the moment.

I can't find anyone 100 percent guilty or victim in the current IP atrocity of behaviours.

It's all hellish when children die because of the actions of their elders.

It's all hellish when it has been done under the guise of bronze age superstitions.

Let me change that... I can find all the dead victims.

The 2023 Doctor Who special has dropped and is likely to irritate the few RW fans of the series

And I absolutely loved it. It's on Disney+ bringing back Tennant's Doctor and Donna Noble (Catherine Tate) back together for at least two episodes once again helmed by David Moffat.

Watched The Marvels

and was pleasantly surprised considering all the bad press. It was intentionally goofy with a lot of grins and just a fun Saturday matinee feel to it. Kamala Kahn (Iman Vellani) pretty much stole the show.
