How Was Your Weekend?

Mine was okay! It was very cold and gloomy, but I didn’t have to leave the house, which was nice. My brain is already in Thanksgiving mode, which means that all I want to do is eat and wear sweatpants.

    Not great – both kids are in really tough phases right now and by Sunday night we were both just super worn down by how difficult and exhausting everything is. On top of that my team lost a really easy game, we made a dinner that I’ve made before and is usually great but was kinda disappointing, I didn’t get much sleep cause I was stressed about the work bomb that went off Friday, and that’s about everything.
    Sorry to start this out on such a downer…

    I let myself watch one episode of Longmire for every hour of work I did, so I finished a draft of a big project by 8 pm on Sunday and watched the series finale around midnight. Getting this draft done feels great because now it’s a matter of making edits, which feels more doable than this massive project that I’ve been drowning in all year.

    Last night I cleaned two bags of sweaters out of my closet because I organized a clothing drive at work but it’s really hard to let go of clothes even though I haven’t worn them in at least a year. A local church gives out clothes on Thanksgiving to whoever shows up so I like that the clothes are going to help people directly, I never know where to donate that will make an impact. I’m only in the office two days this week which is fantastic!

    On Saturday night I saw Murder on the Orient Express. I knew what the solution was, so I was in it for a purely academic reason instead of entertainment. Kenneth Branaugh Kennethed the shit out of it, so that was fun. When we got out of the theater what had been just a heavy rain was a crazy thick snow shower, but we rode out the weather by getting Thai food.

    I watched three movies I had never seen before this weekend instead of rewatching an old show like I normally would. Let me tell you about them!

    Moana: I’ve been meaning to watch this forever and was very pleased with it because it was basically a cross between Pocahontas, Ponyo and Windwaker (the Zelda game) which are three things I like very much.

    I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore: This won like the big prize at Sundance this year and it was good but I definitely saw several movies at the festival that were better than it, no shade. Melanie Lynskey’s character was a little too similar to me in the pet peeves department and I hope things don’t turn out for me the way they did for her!

    Before We Go: This is the movie that Theresa’s husband Chris Evans directed and you know the script was kind of stupid sometimes and it was nothing to write home about but he did a good job I guess? The ending didn’t piss me off which usually happens with these types of movies and I will probably watch it again someday. The biggest criticism I have is that it was really hard to suspend my disbelief vis a vis a handsome white heterosexual man in New York offering to spend an entire night helping a stranger get home to her husband and not once trying to murder or aggressively hit on her.

    Friday night I went to a dive for their indie dance night, which was fun. Despite the fact that I was the oldest person there, no one shot me judgemental looks, or behaved in a bothersome manner. Aside from a couple of dinners with friends, I spend the rest of the weekend either watching football or playing Star Wars: Battlefront II. For those of you who have missed the news, that game has been getting a ton of shit because of its then-sketchy in game currency, which basically was structured so that you win more easily if you pay real life money. While it is a shitty practice, I still ended up getting because 1) it really only affect multi-player, which I don’t care about, 2) I got it at a steep discount, so I think I got my money’s worth.

      I don’t know anything about games, but aren’t they all set up so that you win more easily if you pay real life money? That’s why I give up on phone games so quickly!

      • FRQ says:

        Yup! In fact, EA (the developer) has been doing this with their sports games for a while, so when Star Wars fans got upset, the sports people were like “You must be new here”

    • catweazle says:

      Wait so you have to pay for the game and then it asks you for MORE money to get all the features? I get that for like, game apps that are free but never heard of it for an actual console videogame.

  6. There won’t be a Project Club post this week because of the holiday, so I just need to brag that I went to the bank, got gas, AND picked up some groceries on my lunch break today! Gold star for me.
