The short of it

Almost every Sunday since mid-May 2020 with a few exceptions, I have been taking my own personal Sabbath, where I tune out of the news and social media and turn off my ringer and all notifications on my phone. Throughout the day and/or sometimes the next day, I share what I am reading, listening to or watching during my Sabbath.

My Own Personal Sabbath #12

This weekend, my wife Kim and I are having a bad movie weekend in celebration of Mystery Science Theater 3000 dropping most of the episodes from its first 10 seasons. We started last night by watching The Mad Monster from Season 1. Tonight, we plan watch another one or two, and tomorrow night, watch more. We also have a selection of movies by a local director who has a cult following among bad movie enthusiasts from which to choose. We found several on Tubi.

Among our movie watching, we also are doing some house cleaning, reading, journaling, and Kim went to see one of the Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate for Pennsylvania, who’s visiting our town today. I have a few choices for reading, including Is This Anything?, a collection of his favorite material through the years that I’ve been making my way slowly through since the start of the year. Maybe/maybe not I’ll finish it.

Kim finished The Book of Delights by Ross Gay book, which she liked, but has no plans on what she’s reading this werkend. She said the book was a great recommendation from the newsletter The Marginalia.

So what are you up to this weekend? Reading, watching, listening to anything good?

    1. I also started (finally) watching The Good Place. Kim’s already seen all of it, but I just started it today and I’m just finishing Season 1. I borrowed all of the seasons on Blu-ray from the library, for about the fourth or fifth time of checking out and not watching them. I think this time I’ll actually watch it
