Grey, overcast, slightly colder than it should be, breezy.
Gearing up fr a busy day - not quite 'there' yet.
Watched the Nick Broomfield doc 'Chicken Ranch' about a Nevada brothel, I saw it many years ago - watching it again, it's much better than I remembered - regardless of how you feel about the subject matter - it's an astonishing piece of work. I did a bit of research later on, the manager - Walter, died in prison soon afterwards and was implicated in a number of murders - and Mandy, the girl who seemed to be bright, open and funny - and was fired for complaining about being ripped off by Walter - was herself murdered a couple of years after the film was made. I'd really like to know what happened to Connie - who seemed far too intelligent and self aware to find herself trapped in a lifestyle she clearly hated.
I was really tired yesterday, couldn't manage anything of any real consequence just a bit of moderate cleaning. My hoover is rubbish, it needs replacing - although - when I think about it - I have only owned 2 vacuum cleaners in my entire adult life - both have been crap, I should really invest on a decent model. Talking of 'invest' - it's a good thing I have plenty of work on - looks like I have loads of expenses coming up - house stuff mostly.
Really looking forward to the bank holiday - I intend to spend it at home, in bed, doing nothing.
Watched a drama from ITV last night called 'murder on the Home Front' - based loosely the early pathology work in London during the 2nd world war. It was absurdly frothy and very silly - they clearly didn't have the budget the needed and some of the CGI was rubbish, or that might have been the point - realism was on holiday - but there were several scenes in the Tivoli Ballroom in London, which brought back a few fond memories.
