Crashed out in a hotel room, stuffed with unlimited breakfast and doing very little. Youngest is watching YouTube on the Chromebook. Cinema later, then some writing whilst waiting for @Jo to arrive.
Doing nothing is proving to be very relaxing. 😁 I'll focus on DIY next week.
I'll admit it, I don't get discord.
You join one group which has about 20 separate text channels, each one has the same people talking in each (and generally not saying anything to do with the channel subject).
You end up with loads of misread chats, over several channels, over several groups and most of it is fecking memes!
Did I miss a thing or did we lose the plot after we moved from IRC/MSN?
I'm not used to hard exercise. That was a hard course (2h20m of climbing, swings, nets, steel cable walks, 450m zip lines etc.) Seriously considering taking up climbing/bouldering again to improve my core, general fitness and mindfulness.
I ache. Tomorrow will be worse. 😂
Head shaved, Greggs for breakfast, now off up into the peaks for the day with my youngest. #Northerners 😉👍
Burned through the back half of The Boys on Prime until 2 am.
The show has a nuance that I don't remember from the comic, which hated superheroes. The show hates the corporation that finances and benefits from them, and therefore makes them greedy, desperate, corrupted or monstrous.
Same with The Boys themselves, it humanizes all of them in a way I only remember Butcher and Wee Hughie getting in the book.
Violent, but scales back on Ennis's over-the- top shock humor.
Hm. Trying to decide whether to smash the shit out of and remove the 60s faux stone facade fireplace and hearth we have, during my two weeks off.
I guess starting such a massive project means I'm going to have to push ahead with it. And after 13 years it would be nice to have a less dreary lounge as well as one that doesn't look like it's out of a 40 year old sitcom.
I'm watching Snowpiercer with youngest. It's turning into a surprisingly good movie. Excellent cinematography, well acted and with an interesting plot that is dripping with metaphor. Classism, Orwellian dystopia, post-scarcity, proles vs. the bourgeoisie. A bit of everything. PS: it's pretty violent.
The #garlic was telling me it was time to harvest.
So we did this morning before the rain. I'm pretty pleased with the size and condition of the garlic, which has been growing in pots the previous two years and is definitely bigger.
It's now drying in trays in the garage (which has light and is airy). I'll then sort through them in another month and work out what to save to sowing in Autumn and what is for eating. And some for sharing too.
