A week?

I must have been busy.  Or lazy.  Both?

I spent part of my weekend cleaning stuff around the house, like the upstairs bathroom, among other locations.

I’ve been hitting my elliptical for about 10-20 minutes for the past week.  I hope to make it back up to 30+ minutes, if not more.

I caught up with my TV watching, the CW DC shows are surprisingly keeping me interested.  Black Lightning is good, so far.

I used my instant pot TWICE in one weekend, making some chicken in salsa thing, and pork ribs.  Both turned out pretty good.

More games that I’ll (maybe) eventually play came in.

More porgs were acquired.  And dice.

And it’s almost February.  Yikes.

TV

I think I’ve caught up with all the network shows that I watch, just in time for a new episode of The Gifted.

Although right now I’m watching a double feature of Star Trek films (TMP and TWoK) on Starz.

Crisis Day 2

That was one heck of a story.

Lots of action, with equal parts funny and sad, and an ending that I didn’t expect.

And of course an awesome homage to the Christopher Reeve films.

I totally enjoyed all 4 episodes.

Randomness

Took a long drive around the Bay Area today, running errands from Gator Games to Fry’s Electronics to Game Kastle Fremont, and finally to Nelson’s place in El Cerrito for our Games Night, this time on International Tabletop Day.

*whew*

I lost track of time at Game Kastle, and along with a traffic delay on 880N, I arrived a little later than I intended to, about 20 minutes after our scheduled start time.

Games were played, food was eaten, and I actually won in a game that I had never in the past.

The Giants lost again.  Arrgh.

I’m behind on a couple of shows for the first time in a while.  Arrow and tonight’s Doctor Who, I’m probably going to catch them on Sunday.

I’m hearing the siren’s call of some of my sports games again, but not enough to set one up.  That may change, though.

This time for sure!

While I’m still waiting on the replacement arm for this guy:

A few more figures are coming in this week.

A hero must have it’s villain…
My name is Oliver Queen…
Also comes with helmeted head.

This is definitely it.  Until it’s not.  Arrrgh.

At 35mm scale, they’re a joy to paint.

Annoyed

Except for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which wraps up season 2 next Tuesday, the rest of the CW DCTV shows are off until the week of April 24th.

*grumble*

Randomness

Edit: I forgot to hit ‘Publish’ on this one late last night (Wednesday).

***

I have way too many sports games at this point.

Hell, I have way too many games, period, at this point.

Thing is, I want to play them all, even ones that I haven’t even read the rules for yet, because at some point they appealed enough to me that I actually shelled out monies for them.

Ack.

***

Arrow was not annoying for the second week in a row.  This may be due to the writers getting better, or the addition of Dinah Drake and Talia al Ghul, both of whom added some substance to the story through their observations on Ollie.

***

Watching the Warriors game, and I STILL am in awe that KEVIN DURANT IS A WARRIOR.

***

I checked out the first half of Legion on FX.  I’ll watch the second half before I make some comment about it.

Eventful

The last week has been rather eventful, both good and bad.

The CW successfully showed that a multi-night multi-series crossover with superheroes can work.  And it was awesome.

At work a division director was ‘retired’, and a coworker was lost in the Oakland warehouse fire.  And through all that, I’ve actually managed to stay sane.  Angry and upset, but sane.

And other stuff happened.

Right now I’m focused on getting through the rest of this year, with Rogue One and Christmas waiting in the next couple of weeks.

Here’s to an uneventful rest of 2016.
