A comedy with cars

Craig and I went and saw "The Lady in the Van" today. It's the (mostly) true story about the woman who lived in Alan Bennett's driveway for fifteen years. Maggie Smith was absolutely wonderful in it, and we both really enjoyed it, though Craig has been an Alan Bennett fan for years. We walked out of the theater with intentions to go do some shopping, only to discover that Craig's car wouldn't start. The battery was dead. AAA came to jump us, but it basically meant that I finally got Craig to admit he needs to get a new car. I've been nagging him about it for a year. He has a 2006 Mazda6, and frankly, it's a piece of crap, but he hates buying cars so he's been stalling.

So after we got home, we switched over to my car and headed to the Ford dealership. I have a Flex, and Craig's two favorite cars have been Fords. Starting there makes sense. He's very picky about cars, mostly because he has rugby player shoulders. Most sedans aren't comfortable for him. We discovered that the new model of the Taurus (the model he's been lamenting not owning since 2008) doesn't work for him anymore. On the other hand, we also learned that the Mustang has gone back to a model design we both love. He's going to check out a few other dealerships this week, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed we end up going with a Mustang. Man, do I have a soft spot for those.

I also watched last night's "Black Sails" this morning...

This was obviously one of those catch-our-breath episodes. All about the thinking and the set-up for what is to come. My Billy heart would've liked more Billy (and less obvious anti-Flint; I know, he hates Flint, but I admit I secretly ship them), and frankly, I think Jack is an idiot for going back to Nassau (Anne's reaction was fantastic), but it was good to see Flint snapping out of his funk. He's best when he has a big grand scheme to work toward.

I don't hate Woodes. I could even ship him. I'm curious where he's going. He has chemistry with Eleanor, but that scene with Max was pretty good, too.

But he's not Billy. I'm so predictable, lol.
