It’s good to know who hates you and it is good to be hated by the right people.

Issues with my house in Tampa. If I was going to suffer an incident requiring me to file an insurance claim, why couldn’t it have been something catastrophic enough to require replacement?

No spoilers. I didn’t have the problems with the final season that a lot of folks seemed to have. I thought it was a decent, but not spectacular ending.

Five Finger Death Punch isn’t a band I normally associate with strong metal ballads. Yet, this one is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

You know what makes me sick to my stomach? When I hear grown people say that kids have changed. Kids haven’t changed. Kids don’t know anything about anything. We’ve changed as adults. We demand less of kids. We expect less of kids. We make their lives easier instead of preparing them for what life is truly about. We’re the ones that have changed.

I’m feeling fatigued with politics and even economics. Not really inspired to write or comment today.

Monday Musings

  • Saturday was “date day” for The Wife and me. We went to see Avengers. I enjoyed it. No spoilers, but they did wrap up things quite nicely. If the Star Wars folks do the same for The Rise Of Skywalker, that might erase the foul taste of The Last Jedi. We also went to The Melting Pot for the first time (because someone was nice enough to give us a gift card as a wedding present). Yeah, I kinda said “Fuck It” to my calories this weekend.
  • On Friday, one of the team (not me, surprisingly) mentioned that Saturday was Star Wars Day. My boss asked about other geek holidays. It amazes me that in a data service, the only reason my team knows about Pi Day and Talk Like A Pirate Day is because I put up signs on my door. Their lack of geek knowledge is disturbing.
  • Is it bad that I want to decorate the sitting room with prints of famous paintings that I only know about because of Civ 6?
