E-D-U-E-R-F-N-E-D-A-H-C-S! - Blather. Rants. Repeat.
A Møøse once bit my sister ...
The opposite of Schadenfreude, that. Happiness, or maybe unhappiness, at your own misfortune.  It's too late and too small to tell, really.

I spent most of today in useless pursuits. Court with no result (yet), arrived at in Emily's car this morning with the final leg driven in a mild snowstorm.  One, then a second client bailed on appointments with me. Mechanic near my Rochester office couldn't fix the broken headlight buzzer on the spot, but will try to do it next week on one of my three straight days of appointments there.

Anddddddd..... when the time came to leave town several hours later, dum-dum needed a jump-jump himself, because it was just freezing-rainy enough to require wipers and headlights when I drove the damn car a block across the street,.... and thus I left the lights on myself and drained the battery:(

Fortunately, my colleague there has jumper cables and has done this "thousands of times," so I was back on the road in no time. But this shiz is GONNA get fixed.

On the bright side, when I got home, I found an email offering me a pair of tickets to a screening of the new Judi Dench film in a couple of weeks:

It took some doing through a couple of different websites, but we're in a week from Tuesday. I knew I'd heard something about this film in recent days, but couldn't remember what.... until now.

The MPAA, in its infinite wisdom stupidity, slapped the film with an R rating for language. Judi returns as a currently-dead character to protest such nonsense:

I fully expect a downgrade to PG-13. After all, her word is her Bond....
