This girl [Marley] is gonna be the end of me one day. 😅😊

First sprinkle of snow! (Taken in the morning)

Some people feel rich when they’ve got monies. Me, when they come around the office and say, “On days like these (Thanksgiving eve in this case) we can leave early. We are all planning to leave at 12:30, but you’ll still get paid for the whole day”.

Don’t mind if I do 🏃 💨

pew pew!

Commuting Tales, Vol 12.

First snow commute! Although, there isn’t, currently, that much snow and still, some people were panicking-ish. That being said it was still the smoothest ride I have had all week. One thing though, I was listening to a podcast on my way here, as you do, and it was very political. I mean one of the main guests was Tulsi Gabbard. I listened to about thirty minutes, which is how long my commute usually is and I found myself I don’t know. Rather than getting interested in the conversation, as I usually do, I was feeling a wee sad. The whole political scenery and how the game is played and our archaic ways of doing politics are so upsetting, frustrating and depressing. I am not sure I can do another two hours of this podcast.

Looks like I’m the only one in the office this morning (so far). Does that means I can work at my desk with no pants? 🤔

  • Me: “Hey Siri, Play Redemption Song by Bob Marley
  • Siri: “Sure! Here’s something something by The Fallout Boys”

😐🤦🏻‍♂️

FOGO.

Fear Of Getting Old.

My only fear about getting older is that, like computers, that eventually they get too old for a new software upgrade. That one day, whenever the come up with a new neurological implant that will make us more technologically advanced, and just like an old computer, I’ll be too old for that technology. 😅

At the end of the day, they all are from the same universe, now. Right?

Ben Jones:

My little brother is severely colorblind and so is his principle at school. While they were learning about colorblindness in class, his principle brought in some glasses that let him see color for the first time, and he was very emotional.

This really got me. 😭

Is it possible to get by with the free tier of ProtonMail? I have mix(ed) feelings about it. 🤔

It is a little hilarious, but mostly scary, that our country (The United States part of America) is run by people that are one fart 💨 away from leaving this world.

I’ve been eyeing the possibility of playing (acquiring) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Part of me wants it for the Nintendo Switch but it’s 60 USDs. When for the Xbox One, it’s on sale for 11.99 USDs, with GOLD.

If I search for the word secure in the App Store, the results are pretty much 99% VPN related apps. And maybe one email client. 😋

VG Games.

There is something that has been on my mind since I think last night. As I have expressed before, there are too many games that have been recently released and that I want to play most of them. But, do I really, want to play them all? Do I want to play them because I am really a fan of the game/franchise? Or, do I want to play these because everybody else is? Everyone is talking about it and, you know, FOMO.

Instead of asking what’s everybody playing and enjoying, I should be asking myself. What brings me joy to play? Is it a racing game instead of, let us say, a Pokemon game. Maybe it’s not a new game that had just come out but maybe revisit an old game that I loved. Like maybe, re-play Assasins Creed Odyssey (for like the 4th time) or even Horizon Zero Dawn (that game was so good).

I feel like in the past I have gotten games for the wrong reasons. “Everyone is talking about this game so I have to play it”! And then I either don’t stick to it or I do enjoy it but maybe I sacrificed another game that probably would have been more in my alley.

Decisions, decisions…

IN OTHER NEWS:

I kind of want a new domain name. 😂🤦‍♂️😅

Commuting Tales, Vol 11.

Today I left the house a little late, I had a hard time getting out of the bed on time, for some reason. I had left my lunch bag at work Friday therefore also left my coffee mug, so I had to improvise this morning to have my coffee to go. Traffic was normal, not a bunch of yahoos on the road, maybe except for the lady behind me that turns out she works here too. But the interesting part about today’s commute was the fact that, man, they change the lanes patterns! I hate it when they do that! I mean, not so much the fact that there’s now a new traffic pattern but the fact that you still see the old one. It trows me/us off, makes everything so confusing and then we all turn into yahoos on the road!

Side Note: Felt like sharing this little story form a fiend on Twitter

She (Marley) did good! 👩‍🍳

Marley's First Time at The Cinema.

Frozen 2

Why was Elsa born with magical powers? The answer is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll set out on a dangerous but remarkable journey. In “Frozen,” Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In “Frozen 2,” she must hope they are enough.

First time and the cinema for Marley! Today we adventures ourselves and took Marley to the Cinema to watch Frozen 2. She has been waiting all week for it! We had company of course, Annie’s brother, his wife and kid (Liam). Alll things considered, it went well. My oldest it’s a lot like, hard to keep still (😅).

The movie was great, I really enjoyed it. Enjoyed better than I did the first one. However, I might be a little bias since I’ve seen the first movie like a trillion times!

It has Been Found!

The Everyday Backpack by Peak Design 🎒 has so many pockets! For like a week or so, I have been searching for the charger brick for the iPad Pro. It’s been lost. I have been using the MacBook Pro’s brick to charge it. Well, today it’s been found (by my wife) in a pocket I totally forget it had! 😅

Luna

woebegone

MEANING

  • adjective

sad or miserable in appearance don’t look so woebegone, Joanna

ORIGIN

Middle English (in the sense ‘afflicted with grief’): from woe + begone ‘surrounded’ (past participle of obsolete bego ‘go around, beset’)

This is a weird one, never heard of it before. I can’t help it but think of it as hoe-be-gone 😂

Something I liked this week Volume 16.

📺 My Hero Academia

Despite being born powerless into a super-powered world, Izuku refuses to give up on his dream of becoming a hero. He enrolls himself in a prestigious hero academy with a deadly entrance exam. To make the grade, he’ll have to put in some serious study time with the mightiest hero of all.

This is an amazing show! I actually got into this show awhile back but had dropped it for a bit. Now I am resuming watching it again where I left of, Season 3. My problem is , I’m sort of scared of watching. Sounds very silly! Right (😅)? I get too invested on these shows and its characters. I always fear the worst it’s going to happen to them, it’s like “I can’t watch him/her get hurt” (🙈).

Every time I look at the Mandolorian’s helmet, I think of a Spartan’s helmet. Now I want to play Assassins Creed Odyssey.
