Mine was uneventful, but there’s nothing wrong with that. Work was quiet, and then home was also quiet, and I got some writing done. Weirdly, this Star Trek: Voyager background noise video on YouTube is my new favorite ambient mix for writing…?? I have never watched a single episode of any Star Trek, but I find it soothing to pretend I’m on a spaceship, I guess.
For once, I actually have TV watching to talk about!
Like Theresa, I also watched some GLOW, but only the first few episodes. While I found it enjoyable, there was a part of me that wondered how much more nostalgia I can handle before I break? I know we all love the 80’s, but there are only so many legwarmers and new wave songs I experience before I start to lose interest. Well, maybe not the latter, but still.
The last few episodes of Silicon Valley have driven me insane. Richard ethically questionable antics were cringe-worthy, and he’s pissing away all the good karma he’s built over the last 3 years. And while I don’t mind him leaving the show, Erlich’s departure was really lazy and provided no sense of closure. That being said, it looks like they hit the reset button at the end of this season, and like an trained monkey I will probably watch season 5.
Finally, I continue to watch American Ninja Warrior, as it’s summer and I need something to watch as I eat dinner, without having to find my Roku remote. A highlight from last night’s Daytona Beach qualifier includes this 65-year old man completing 2.5 obstacles. I hope to be this spry when I reach that age.
Mine was good! The weather was nice, barring a few quick thunderstorms, so on Saturday I ran around and got a ton of errands done, including going to the library and the farmer’s market and even my nemesis, the bank. Then on Sunday I lounged and binged Glow on Netflix (my verdict: very fun, and will make you want to listen to every 80’s playlist you can find).
As a bonus, please enjoy this picture of my brother’s dog Charlie in his new, veterinarian-prescribed sun goggles.
What are you up to this weekend? A friend of mine got a new puppy and I’m going to see it tonight, so I don’t even care about whatever else I might be doing. PUPPY.
Here’s the link to last week’s post. I still haven’t returned the sneakers, oops. I need to do that, trim and dye my hair, and wash a load of bedding.
Feel free to air more grievances, by the way. It seems like that was cathartic for everyone.
Mine was nice–work was quiet, and when I got home I was able to take my first long walk in a few days because the temps are back down in the 70s, at least for now. Plus, I discovered this blog, which reviews castles–reviews castles!!!–and it’s my new favorite thing. Look at this one! And this one!
I don’t have any TV thoughts, but if you’re looking to step up your binge-watching game, I have a recommendation. Above is the C Seed 262, where the “262” stands for 262 inches, making it the largest 4K television in existence. The screen is 20 x 8.5 feet, and weighs over 1700 pounds. This monster boast an impressive 7 million LEDs, 800 nits of brightness, a ten speaker sound system, a 160-degree viewing angle, and a remote controlled fabric canvas to cover the screen when you’re not using it. All of this can be yours for the low low price of $539,000, with an additional $40,000 for installation. It’s a steep price, but the final season of Game of Thrones is coming up, and really, how else are you supposed to watch it?
