Later when the sun FINALLY came out I took Dude for his run and took the trash to the road for pickup today.
Dinner was reruns. Chair, wine, TV. No Golden Globe Awards show. Too much Hollyweird for me. Blue Bloods and a Hallmark movie. Actually I was changing channels and saw a few moments of the GG. Lady Gaga (GAG!) was announced for an award. She left her seat next to her finance, Taylor Kinney, and when she took the mike she thanked a ton of people but never mentioned her finance. I thought it weird. More like super self-absorbed. Just a few minutes ago I read an article when the reporter thought it odd she left Taylor out of her thank yous!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.
