My life miscellaneous

I seem to be going through one of “THOSE” periods in my life. I seem to have lost interest in TV. Up until a few weeks ago I watched several shows, The Mentalist, Person of Interest, Blacklist and quite a few others. For whatever reason, I found I was forcing myself to watch these shows, that they really provided me with very little entertainment. So I did a test, I removed all the shows I generally watched without PezWitch from all our DVR’s. I figured after a couple of missed episodes, I would go back to check on them and see what was happening. More surprising was what actually happened, it was weeks before I even thought about any of those shows again. The only reason it came to the foreground was I happened to catch an episode of the Mentalist and decided to watch it, I fell asleep less than 10 minutes in. This begs the question for me, how much TV are we watching simply because we are in the habit of doing so?

I’m Back!

It is one year to the day since I stopped blogging and moved my wondrous insight to Facebook and I am seriously considering coming back.

So long and thanks for all the fish – Part 2

This is officially my last post here. I may start blogging again in the future, if I do, I will probably start over from scratch. I plan to leave this blog intact for the time being, but I will likely take it down at some point. I have no plans to give up this site, if for no other reason than to continue the Companions of Xarth wiki and maintain my current email address. I visited my Facebook account for the first time in weeks and I shaved my friends list down to 30, I may even go tighter than that. However, if you are family or made some reasonable effort to stay in contact with me, I will not unfriend you. I will start posting my random meanderings there. So there you have it, after 28 months, thanks for reading, it was fun.

So long and thanks for all the fish – Part 1

Okay, I am going to admit defeat here. I simply do not have the bandwidth anymore to post here on anything remotely resembling regularity. In the next day or two I am going to decide if I just want t take a break for the summer or if I need to just shut it down and shift what little blogging I do back to Facebook. Right now, I am leaning towards the latter rather than the former.

Interesting moments in life

The girl behind the counter at Chick-fil-A gave me the senior discount. A couple of years ago this might have annoyed me, today, my only thought was Woo-Hoo 10% discount, life is good.

Happy Pi Day

And ladies, please do not forget it is Steak and BJ day.

Happy February 29th

It is leap year and today is the bonus day we get once every four years. You’d think they would make this an automatic day off for everyone, but no, our corporate overlords can’t allow us to have too much fun. Sigh!

Oh io9, how I love thee

I believe this is proof positive that Farts are in fact very funny, in spite of what mainstream culture tries to force on us as “Appropriate”.

Mr Beer, Batch Two

So my second batch of beer was officially ready today, The first this is I am grateful I went for the smaller bottles this time, those huge 32 oz bottles are sometimes a bit much. Second, this beer has a much heavier taste than my first batch. Of course that is to be expected, the first batch was a light pale beer made more or less exactly the way the instructions told me to. The second batch is a dark Oktoberfest beer and I used honey instead of sugar to give it a heavier more earthy flavor. I am very pleased with the results. Unfortunately, I am going to have to hold off on making more beer for a while, I have a refrigerator full of it and I don’t drink beer all that fast.

The Suck

Hot on the tail of the suck that was the Star Trek:TOS/Legion of Superheroes Comic book cross over, the same company is getting set to do a Star Trek:TNG/Dr Who cross over.

Please!, for the love of god, STOP. This is going be bad, REALLY REALLY BAD. I implore you IDW please don’t do it. I know you think this is going to make you millions and the writer who is vomiting this garbage out thinks he is going to get a movie deal, but neither of those things are going to happen, because this idea SUCKS! The Star Trek:TOS/Legion of Superheroes cross over would have been considered bad even if you had posted it to a fanfic site instead of convincing DC to let you use their intellectual property.

Stop, Just Stop.
