More of my favorite things…

Favorite movie musical: The Greatest Showman. Hugh Jackman goes back to what he does best, Broadway style singing and dancing, after he retired from the X Men with Logan.

Some of my favorite things…

College fall semester is officially over. Thank ‘Something’. The Higher Power. If there really is one. I don’t know if there is.

2018- the worst year of all time?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this year so far is shit. We have a jackass President in the White House, another one who is our crappy Governor of Maryland, our County Executive of Baltimore County died of a heart attack while in office, and in Europe, the Eurovision winner is […]
