I made an idiotic mistake yesterday and I tried fixing it, but couldn't. So they're telling the CEO in case the client complains, which we figure they will.
I actually start Christmas vacation this afternoon, but the good feeling is gone with all this going on. Of course, I don't want to get fired either.

I realized something: I don't have a best friend anymore. Yes, it's obvious in one way. Suzanne died. My best friend died and I miss her horribly. I miss her for herself and for our relationship.
But I also have no one else, not a best friend, not a close friend even. I lost other friends too. Plus people like my husband and my sister Cathi have their own best friends - which is great -- but that relationship is reserved with them.
So it makes the loneliness from Suzanne worse.

1) Daniel Radcliffe himself is promoting this since the books and movies came out so long ago. Plus Rowling can now put all the retconning in that she's discussed or used elsewhere. Also, with the Fantastic Beasts stalled and Cursed Child having so much hate, going to a new Harry can make fans happy and bring in Gen Z (like other reboots).
) The Godfather series with Johnny Depp as Michael. Godfather is a Boomer thing and Boomers are hated. (Sorry Gen X and Y. You're lumped in there.) Don't forget, Gen Z outnumbers everyone, so you need to focus on them. And Gen Alpha are the little ones growing up with these reboots. So a new Godfather means getting that millennial and Gen Z. Despite Depp being a Boomer, he'll get their money and he desperately needs a big hit. So win-win.
4) The Golden Girls. Betty White said she'd do it and that's a draw right there. Their merchandise is going through a big boom, so they could take advantage. The problem would be the movement against Boomers, but it might be enough to have the three generations above millennials.
There's supposedly 121 reboots in the list including Shrek, Akira, and American Werewolf. Obviously, the majority will do well. For example, Abrams could do Harry Potter and more reboots, so they'll be successful. It can mean Universal can redo Wizarding World too with the new rebooted version of that universe. Like Disney and its properties going into the parks.
Yes, a minority will complain. I did with Trek and Wars, but it's a minority.
Google your favorites and see if they're in the list. It's interesting to see who is redoing what parts.

It's awful and it eats at me. The world is painful enough, but to have people you trust betray that....

I waited half a second because they have 2 staff members -- one not doing anything at the moment -- and 2 guys. So I jumped in and said I'd go with her. The guy behind me said, "Do I got to wait for you?" I said no and loaded the things to the car, then helped the woman.
She kept thanking me -- but here's the thing. I was frustrated in the line behind her too, thinking I'd be late for work and work so negative already. I was ashamed of that as I watched her struggle.
People always ask me who's going to take care of me when I grow old since I have no kids; so I asked her did she have kids, expecting her to say no. But she said yes, 2 of them, but they lived far away and she wasn't going to intrude on their own lives.
I worried about her carrying those bags when she got home, but she said she'd take her time. I wished her a Happy Belated Mother's Day and she just lit up.I hope she had a neighbor.
Meanwhile, I wish her kids would say, Mom needs help, let's get her some since we live far away. C'mon, she's your mom and you don't want strangers around; what if they take advantage?
