Spock's Brain, dumb 

So I'm watching this dumb episode this evening (on my small dumb bedroom TV because big dumb olf TV is broken and big dumb new TV is still in transit).

Seems obvious to me the cast knew this episode was going to be terribly dumb the moment they started reading the script so they played it a little extra campy as a sort of apology to the viewers.

sooo...Imma just embracing the dumb start to what looks like a pretty dumb week for me.

My main TV stopped working last night (it is a plasma from over 15 years ago I guess that is a long time in TV years these days) so today I set about looking for a Hen's Tooth

So, now that Alberta has the most active cases of COVID per capita than any other jurisdiction on the continent out dithering government has FINALLY decided we need to take action.

It's not like this is a surprise--there have been 3 waves, all but the first handled the same timid and terrible way by our leadership. First our Christmas was ruined by such mismanagement, and now it looks like Victoria Day long weekend will be too.
