I would book a place to stay offering nightly thunderstorms under a tin roof for vacation. I grew up in one and there’s no calmer sound that rain on the tin roof in the summer.
I don’t know what the reward is for walking over 25om in a week. But this is the first time I’ve got it and I’m excited to see.
It’s been relentlessly hot this week but I used the Independence Day holiday and waking up early on the weekend to hit the goal including a nearly 4 mile walk this morning around my favorite lake.
That feeling when a Comcast line comes down in a storm. You struggle to get them out to fix it because you’re not a customer. Then that line takes out your Verizon FiOS line so you’re without internet.
I’m three phone calls deep with Comcast to get them to fix the line dangling across the street and have yet to get an appointment. I don’t know when someone will come out to repair it.
Verizon will be here tomorrow. And they’ve already been out once (but since it’s a Comcast line, the repair tech couldn’t do anything about it.)
Comcast. We call it Xfinity now, but it’s still the same terrible service it was a decade ago the last time I was a customer due to their monopoly.
📺 I have finished Stranger Things Season 3.
I have many feelings. It’s a great arc and a satisfying enough end.
A scene after the credits?
If we had 3 or 4 kids from the 80s we’d have all of our problems solved in about 90 minutes.
I love seeing the woodpeckers at the suet feeders.
📚I finished reading Robert Caro’s Working.
An interesting peek into his obsessive curiosity.
The only people who want to be free are those who have committed a crime. The rest of us incarcerate ourselves in marriage, 9-5 jobs, organized religion, loyalty cards. Do you think they’ve have had to comb the deserts for Terrorist 47 if he had a loyalty card?
Played Mysterium tonight with Reesa and Michelle and had an absolute blast. (Sorry you missed out Stanley and Lori.)
The artwork is beautiful. The game is a cooperative Clue where a ghost passes clues to you about the murderer through abstract artwork.
We were successful in our first playthrough as a team. It was a great party game with a fair bit of setup. But it’s very easy to understand once you get going.
After this, we played possibly the wildest game of Fluxx. This is a game where you start with simple rules of “Draw 1, Play 1.”
Then the rules can change the number of draws. Or plays. Or the number if cards in your hand.
The goals to win also change constantly.
It’s a fun game where everything changes so quickly it’s hard to have any kind of strategy.
We spent most of the game with a hand limit of zero. We picked and played the same card for turn after turn. Until we finally got to draw 4 cards at once and Reesa got both cards needed to attain the goal and won.
