Tuesday TV Talk

During a dinner outing with friends last month, the topic of TV came up.  When asked about what I was watching, I came to the realization that I was watching 8 shows that were airing.  Jesus, how did I have time to do anything?  With the season finale of Rick and Morty, I thought I would have a little breathing room, but no, two more shows start this week, putting my total to 9.  One of those shows is Mr. Robot, the hacker drama on USA.  Last season was disappointing, but the first season was so strong I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, and will see what’s in store for Elliot and the gang tomorrow night.

How Was Your Weekend?

Mine was good–I got an AMAZING massage on Saturday, which I really wish I could afford to do more often, because my shoulders and neck are un-kinked for the first time in years and I swear I’m an inch taller now. And on Sunday I was very lazy, which was also great.

Tourism/Work for Weirdos: Ten-pin Bowling in Turkmenistan

That I am even writing this post is ridiculous. Unbelievable. Crazy. I’m not the sort of person who ditches sensible, safe work to travel halfway round the world on my own.

Or maybe I am. Maybe, just maybe, that’s who I really am.

This Weekend’s Flanospooks

Flanospooks are back and WordPress looks different from last time I used it so let’s see how they work out!

It’s been a while, so as a reminder Flanospooks are like Flanoscopes which are like horoscopes except they’re spooky and tell you the least spooky thing that will happen to you this month. Everything else that happens is going to be even spookier than this one thing, so get ready!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s Project Club Time!

Here’s last week’s post. I did not accomplish a single one of my projects! I did a lot of other stuff I had to do, but forgot about everything on the list, so they’re back on again.

I’m also going to count getting through the work week as a project, because it’s dragging like crazy this week even though nothing in particular is different than usual.

So, How Was Your Day?

I had a pleasantly boring day–the weather was nice, work was quiet, I got some grocery shopping done. I did forget to get gas, though, which I should probably do tomorrow morning if I want to make it to the office.
