    It's manageable, I guess, all in all, but I'm certainly more than ready for this $%^&*! pandemic to end.

    And you've gotta see Gladiator sometime soon! Great historical adventure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owK1qxDselE

    TNP has big plans for the weekend.

    Hmmm...does working and maybe watching old movies count? I’m guessing no.

    TNP remains astounded by the aftermath of the US presidential election, despite the predictions.

    Yeah. Actually, it's not quite as bad as I'd have guessed, but it's astonishing nonetheless.

    TNP lives to pursue and punish those who have failed to perform correctly, either legally, socially, or within any other realm of behavior.

    No, but it can be a bit of fun along the way.

    TNP could really do with a beer right now.

    Yeah, a beer sounds great right now. Just a regular draft beer.

    TNP is pretty sometimes just a good old fashioned regular draft beer is just the thing. Doesn't matter what else Turkkinpippuri you got, or even water. Nice cold beer.

    Ayep.

    TNP has been to Maine in the past year.

    No, never made it up there. I think it would be fun to spend time in one of the francophone enclaves, if they still exist, and maybe pick up some more hillbilly franco-canadian slang.

    If TNP were to relocate, he or she would consider a small fishing-based village a good place to end up.

    That might be nice (and Ogunquit, Maine, which I've visited, would fit the bill), but I think a nice little college town might be more to my liking.

    TNP needs to buy a space heater for the winter.

    Nope. I literally live by my space heater about nine months out of the year (the rainy months in the great state of whatever). It will cause a disturbing rash, which it would not surprise me is potentially melanomic, for good or bad varieties of irritation.

    TNP has had some ribs lately, and approves.

    No, and I love ribs! All the places I would ordinarily get ribs are closed, or I don't want to run the risk of infection.

    TNP saw someone in a red hat today.

    None. Alive.

    TNP knew that a "dance belt" is not really a belt but kind of a jock strap.

    No, had no idea.

    TNP has a preference between Netflix, Prime and Tubi.

    False. I've used the first two and have no preference; I don't even know what the third is.

    TNP has listened to a march tune today.

    Yeah, actually. I don't know what you'd call it except for a march, from my haphazardly put together "Hammond organ" USB for in the car, "When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again." I can't remember if it was Jimmy Smith's or Don Patterson's version. If that's not a march, then I don't know what it is. It's played in 4 for the solos, but it has more of a duple/march time during the theme, and Jimmy's arrangement features a drone in fifths from the bass end of the organ and some flute-like ditherings drawing from the diminished/octatonic scale.

    TNP is not doing much for Thanksgiving this year, and thinks it's probably day to use one of his or her weekly alcohol consumption days and fantasize about murdering his or her downstairs neighbor.

    Not doing much for Thanksgiving, check. Probably drinking alcohol, check. Fantasizing about murder... uh, not so much.

    TNP has been following all the post-Election-Day lawsuits with less than rapt attention.

    Yeah. I mean, really? A coworker today tried to get my opinion about the "whole thing" and it was very difficult for me to conceal just how dismissive of the "whole thing" could possibly be. Yes, This Current Poster follows the various frivolous lawsuits, but not very closely.

    TNP remembered Rudy when he was a pretty good mayor (well, opinions vary, but I never heard much dissent besides "He's turning midtown Manhattan into Disneyland!" in that way only New Yorkers could complain about piddly shit). And bonus TNP: TNP has a theory about why Rudy broke bad? Because I don't know. Dementia? No idea. Therefore, it's all in the hands of TNP.

    Yes, I remember Rudy from when he was a pretty good mayor of NYC (arguably the best of my lifetime). What happened? Well... I think he just got old, his lawyer skills rusted, and he decided it was more important to be in Trump's orbit than to have a soul or any kind of admirable public standing anymore. But that's just me.

    TNP has had pie in the past 24 hours.

    No. I did have a very good cider, though. Dry, and yet complicated. It was a very good cider, for my tastes.

    TNP thinks it's possible to be a bit too attentive to or interested in women. Not in a harmful fashion, but in a way that one can become distracted very easily.

    Oh, yes, definitely. And there are so many wonderful ones to be attentive to or interested in!

    TNP has recently seen a stunningly beautiful woman in a public place, but all too briefly.

    Would have had to be in a public place for that, and we’re back in lockdown.

    TNP has certain weekend routines, and dislikes having them disturbed.

    Not really. Weekday/workday routines, though, most definitely. There's a pretty precise schedule I follow in the mornings.

    TNP has been putting off making an appointment with a dentist and dental hygienist for a long time.

    No, I had my annual dental checkup and teeth-cleaning just a few weeks back.

    TNP is more than ready for a cheap, safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine to get approved already, dammit.
