We saved out a Jeep-ful of things, but didn't unload the truck upon arriving home why? Because we're having lots and lots of thunderstorms rolling through the area tonight, some severe. Traffic on the way home was slow because of monsoon-like rain and hail and-and-and. Holy crap.
Anyway, after finishing at Dad's but before coming home, Mrs. Fungus decided she wanted to see a movie, so we went to the Ipic theater over that way. Holy crap what a way to watch a movie! We paid a little extra for premium seats, which included free popcorn, pillows, and blankets; we had dinner there in the theater--brought to us by a waiter--while we watched A Cure For Wellness which is, by the way, a cracking good movie. The seats were recliners, more than big enough and comfortable, so I spent the whole movie with my feet up and shoes off, under a blanket.
So not only was the movie really good, but I felt refreshed after watching it. It only costs a little more to go first class, Dad always said, and that was a first-class way to see a movie!
I could get very used to that.

Comedians these days are usually not at all funny. The ones who work on SNL, doubly so. While waiting to watch our movie there was a "preview" thing about improv clubs, and Mrs. Fungus predicted that it would be totally unfunny...and she was right. The guy they featured simply was not even remotely humorous.
In this case:
"I want to be in love, I want to do that, but it’s 2017, and we got a pig in office. The world is about to end."Here is the salient difference between people on the left and people on the right. People on the right (like me) don't give a rat's ass who is President; we go right on living our lives. I met the right woman, fell in love, and got married even though President Jugears was in office.
...You see. It's funny...laugh.
If you put your personal life on hold because you don't like the sitting President, you are an idiot.
But the fact is, she isn't having trouble finding love because she's afraid of the world ending due to Trump. She's having trouble finding love because of her personality. Evidence:
The 49-year-old actress also found the time to rip on dog lovers during her set. In a bit about rescue dogs and their holier-than-thou owners who say things like: "Did I rescue the dog, or did the dog rescue me?"Wishing horrible death on someone who is hoity-toity--that's hate, right there.
To that, Jones replied "How about both of y'all get caught in a fire, and neither one of y'all get rescued?"

I have seen some of this myself. Awful lot of cars piling up out there. Almost as if a bubble was popping....

NASA does not want anyone horning in on its bailiwick. I think that's why NASA is expressing frustration over SpaceX's announcement that they're going to send a couple of people out past the Moon and back.
This is where things will get dicey for any private organization that sends people into space. NASA won't approve of it, and will take steps to prevent it. Mark my words.

Well, the weather amusement continues. Just got a tornado watch alarm from the weather radio, in effect until 4 AM. Well, that's neat. IT'S FRICKING FEBRUARY WTF
I thought La Nina was supposed to make it a cold, snowy winter. Instead we've had a moderate, rainy winter. WTF.
Well, could be worse.
