But first, a word from our sponsor. That would be me. I have a new story online:
Summer at Mettie’s, at Rock and a Hard Place
A small-town fixer gets the cold shoulder from her community for being too trusting of people with nefarious objectives.
I never had anything against Daniel Craig. Thought he would make a pretty good James Bond, especially since I’ve read a Bond book or two and know JAMES BOND IS BLOND, Y’ALL.
But I wasn’t interested. Not a fan, because haven’t really seen him work.
This week, #4 Daughter told me she had watched KNIVES OUT, and wanted to watch it again, this time with me.
So we watched it. And she went home and ordered a copy so we can watch it ANY TIME WE WANT TO.
If you love whodunnits, especially Agatha Christie-type ones, this film is your meat. I don’t believe there is one end left loose, one Chekhovian gun left unfired, one wasted frame.
And Daniel Craig with a southern (American South) accent totally won my heart. He is absolutely my new imaginary pretty-boy sleuth boyfriend.
In other news, here are my nails this week, inspired by one of Charlie’s shirts:
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about a shirt.
