    ERREMENTARI: THE BLACKSMITH AND THE DEVIL

    I loved it. Watch on Netflix. Even though it's dubbed, read the translation at the very end. It's completely wrong. Something about a pumpkin, lol.

    That was pretty good.

    OCD demon sez: "No! No! Not the chickpeas!" ... LOL

    Apparently, the pumpkin thing - "get out of the pumpkin and into the square" - is a literal translation of an idiom that traditionally ends Basque folktales (sort of like "and they all lived happily ever after ..."). The sense of it is supposed to be something like "that's the story, so let it be told". In English, an old joke or riddle is sometimes called a "chestnut" - so maybe in Basque an old story is called a "pumpkin". Imagine what a non-English speaker might think about a literal translation of "he choked on a hot dog and kicked the bucket" ...

    The demon was my favorite character. And the wife of the hotel/pub owner cracked me up, too. Did you notice she hit him every time she said something to him? lol

    Ah, good to know. Now, instead of "happily ever after", I can say "get out of the pumpkin and into the square" and sound cosmopolitan.

    I was watching Midsomer Murders with Mr A last night. He hates watching them with me because I just can't help but comment on all the murders in these sleepy little English towns. I noticed most of the town is dead before DCI Barnaby apprehends the killer. He's a sucky DCI. Anyway, in last night's episode, a man in red 'trainers' broke into the dead guy's house and stole his laptop and I wondered out loud why he would bother stealing a old crappy laptop. (the show originally aired in 2005 or 06) Poor Mr A, he thought I was retarded for a minute.

    I googled Midsomer to find out if it was a real place because I was worried about accidentally visiting and getting murdered. It isn't, btw.

    I fell asleep watching a boring Netflix movie called IO. I thought it was 10 at first but they were just being artsy with the I. It was a dumb global warming climate change ammonia air movie. According to the narrator, we were warned the earth was dying by a few smart people but we didn't listen and the earth is dying.

    There was one odd thing I noticed. Okay, so in the movie we have the technology to go to Jupiter's moons and harvest energy but in the scene where the super hawt environmental scientist 17 year old heroine goes into the city wearing an oxygen mask, I noticed a pay phone booth in the city ruins, lol. WTF? We have the tech to harvest energy from Jupiter's moons and we've gone back to using pay phones? BTW, she also has the tech to skype her super hawt genius 17 year old boyfriend who lives on Jupiter's moon, IO but the city people who all died from ammonia air, used pay phones.

    That's the first 30 minutes.

    I've been watching Slobby's World on Netflix. He's a reseller (like me) who owns a store in Tucson, I think. I'm not crazy about his style. He's into 80's and 90's stuff and "sneaker culture", lol. Mr A tried to humor me and watch it but when Slobby brought up "sneaker culture", Mr A mumbled something about the stupidest $#@! he's ever heard and left. Mr A isn't into sneaker culture. As a matter of fact, he doesn't even pick out his own sneakers. I buy him a few pairs in different sizes and he tries them on and picks the ones he likes best and I return the rest. That's as much sneaker culture as he can handle.

    I watched another Midsomer Murder (there are like 19 seasons). Anyway, I've been telling Mr A how, next time we go to the UK, we should steer clear of festivals because someone is always murdered at one in Midsomer. In last night's episode, there was a haunted house and this weird couple who had written a book about Midsomer hauntings were suspects. When DCI Barnaby showed up to interrogate them they told him they were writing a book about Midsomer Festivals. I thought they should be writing it about Midsomer Festival Murders. Like a sequel to their haunted house book.

    My favorite place in Midsomer is Badgers Drift. I learned there's an abandoned WW II bomb shelter there in last night's episode.

    spoiler alert

     
    The weirdos didn't do it and the house wasn't haunted.
