The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 8-3-14

Sunday Post

It’s hard to believe that summer is more than half over. Seattle has reached the hot stage, in other words, the point where I bemoan the lack of air conditioning. That homes didn’t have air conditioning made sense in Anchorage, but here, not so much.

Even the cats are refusing to cuddle. It’s obviously way too warm if you have a fur coat that you can’t take off.

Speaking of taking off, we saw Guardians of the Galaxy last night. It is absolutely awesome. Terrifically fun, and the retro sound track is perfect. The villains are more than a bit cardboard cut out, but who really cares? The characters of “our heroes” are marvelous, and Rocket frequently steals the show. Just as he should.
