Out of the Blue

Last year I mentioned my learning experience when the swans and most of the ducks did not depart our area to fly south for the winter. Now that I'm aware this isn't something they all must do, I'm not shocked that they are once again sticking around. But they still have the capacity to surprise me, as they've been spending most of their time on the nearby pond, undeterred by the fact that it's frozen over most of the time. The swans, who generally don't seem to like walking or sitting on dry land, spent most of yesterday sitting on the ice. At one point they tucked their heads back and took a lengthy nap. Even when a bit of the ice thawed they spent more time on the ice than in the exposed water. It's still hard to fathom how comfortable they and the ducks seem. Whether on the ice, or swimming around, they so not seem to care at all. I'm jealous, as I am always cold when outdoors in winter, even wearing a down jacket that uses the very same insulation that they do.

I knew one of the Wachowskis was transgender, but apparently the the other one also came out as transgender a few years ago. It's now Lana and Lilly.

They went from "The Wachowski brothers" to "The Wachowski siblings" a while back. Not sure what they'll be called five years from now.

Well, if both are transgender, then "sisters" is the word you are struggling to find. I am not sure how that would be difficult to predict but I offer my assistance with the vocabulary.

"I have spoken."

I resist daily replying with that whenever I see your comments.

Not sad that a man who has caused incalculable damage to our democracy is gone.

Not sure if you're being sarcastic. I'm pretty spoiler averse, but people jumping off a building is something that happened many times in all of the previous movies, so it was something I was expecting to see anyway, so I don't feel spoiled.

Also, it's good to know they're not just doing all CG effects, but some in-the-real-world practical effects. Honestly, I'm not very hopeful this movie will be good. The record of "returning to the classics" has a very poor track record. That said, I'm always down to see a Wachowski flick, as even the bad ones are interesting visually.
