Cloister Commentary, Day 330: Light Entertainment

Our normal Valentine’s Day is an “Overeem Special” from Shakespeare’s (red onions, mushrooms, pepperoni, pepper cheese, and green olives) and a good movie. That isn’t going to happen this year; we are eating healthier, for one, and we’re out of pocket, for another. But Nicole and I will be together with my mom, chicken stew is on the menu, and I believe they are going to treat me to an episode of “Men in Kilts”….

Yesterday, we spent a day inside because we are sane. I made grilled cheese sandwiches for everyone, we ate a thousand of Nicole’s homemade cookies, Mizzou dropped one at home to The Nouveau Border War Adversary, and we took in the first episode of “Clarice” (not horrible, other than the subject matter) and Promising Young Woman (it definitely sticks with one, and I never thought I’d see Carey Mulligan pull that kind of role off). As you can see, we enjoy light entertainment on our family Saturday nights.

Streaming for Strivers:

Smokey: a Valentine’s Day secular kind of muezzin. I just stumbled upon this “stripped” collection; I don’t know if it was a true release, but let’s not quibble.
