  • What's On Your Mind?

    Sunday rainy Sunday (said with a nod to U2). Excercise class followed by coffee at Starbucks with a friend followed by grocery shopping. It's a pretty typical Sunday for me. I saw "the post" with Merril Streep and Tom hanks last night. It was really good. I work in the newspaper industry and they did a great job showing how it used to look. The costumes and sets were amazing. The segregation of women, even if they're the boss, in society was scary. I thought it was interesting that the only place women looked totally integrated was in the groups that were protesting. Thank you generation of women before me for fighting for my rights. Obviously I can't remember the 60,s but when I started working at the end of the eighties they still had the infrustructure of tubes that used to move stuff around the building but they were no longer in use. You used to be able to put ad copy in tubes that went to production and cheques in tubes that went to credit. They showed similar ones in the news room going to the presses.

      I bought a new monitor for my computer, but the colours don't look right. It doesn't seem to show yellow. The tech people said it was because my computer was so old it couldn't handle the monitor . . . so I am going to have to buy a new computer

        Coffee with a friend turned into sitting in emergency with my daughter. Nothing serious, she got hurt Rock climbing and they advised her to get checked out which is probably what they say for insurance reasons. She called to say I didn't have to meet her there because she's 18 and she was okay. I did what she wanted instead of what she said and spent 2 hours sitting in emergency to be told take tylonal and rest for a week. While we there I assured her I'd sit with her in emergency even if she was 35. An elderly lady with her middle aged son arrived and I said and look you can bring me when Im old. She replied but you'll still be bringing me too right? Lol. Grateful for free and easily accessible health care. That's probably the one thing Canadians will never understand about Americans. Free health care is worth every penny!

          I'm getting so much spam mail about alleged "Russian women" wanting to meet me, ways to solve the problem of erectile dysfunction, and cure for baldness. How do the spam bots know exactly what I need?
          You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

              TimeTravellingBunny I never get spam like that! Mine's all about vitamins and ppi, very boring.

              Glad your daughter is okay GoSpuffy and totally agree about free health care. Our NHS is worth it's weight in gold.

              Not sure about a Charmed reboot, isn't it meant to be a 'feminist reboot'? I'll probably watch it for a while until it starts to annoy me, like the original Charmed

                    I play video games. I finished Sanctum 2 recently ( tower defence/first person shooter hybrid - fun game, surprisingly huge amount of depth ) and just started Far Cry Primal. I don't know what to think about it yet, it's a modern Ubisoft open world game so there's crafting, gathering and all that stuff but the setting makes it kinda like, I don't know, Skyrim maybe? We'll see, so far it seems interesting enough.

                      That's great I actually never heard of Sanctum before shocking enough, lol. Far Cry Primal seems interesting enough since I enjoyed the Far cry 3 not so much Far cry 4 yes, I do see similarities to Skyrim.

                      Have you ever played on a game called 'Ori and the blind forest?' I just completed it recently and it was mesmerizing the sound, the gameplay and story was just an art piece. I would truly recommend that game to anyone even if it's just the soundtrack. Here is the trailer.



                      Just hear the music! goosebumps!

                          I've heard good things about it, I want to play it in the future. I finished Hollow Knight quite recently and I'm just not in the mood for another metroidvania right now.

                            Yes you heard right it was truly fantastic it had pure emotion and inspiring artistry, I would totally recommend Ori to you I hope one day you will get the chance to play it. Warning you the first half an hour you would probably cry because I did like a baby in fact.

                            Thank you so much for sharing that trailer "Hollow Knight" it looks so unique to play I truly love games like that!

                            May I ask you what console do you play your games on? and did you play both of the Buffy games?

                              I don't own any consoles these days, I game on my PC. Anyway, I didn't play the xbox game but I did play Chaos Bleeds, I replayed it, like, last year, on an emulator. I like that game. Games based on TV shows are usually not very good, I mean, let's be honest, it's all mostly shovelware but Chaos Bleeds is actually decent. The combat is...it's OK, really, not great, not terrible. It's easy enough that you can button mash your way through it but the hand to hand characters ( Buffy, Faith, Spike ) have some really cool advanced moves. Willow has spells and I love how powerful she is in that game, she's basically a full-blown turbo-witch. And she still can do basic melee attacks so it's possible to go all magic was a mistake, it's nothing but trash and just beat the crap out of vampires. As Willow. While she's dropping one-liners. It's absolutely hilarious. And Xander! Xander gets weapons, like, he's got a water gun with holy water! Why wasn't that in the TV series?! The story's pretty good too. It's a better season 7 ( first evil is the big bad ) than the actual season 7. The past big bads don't just make a cameo, you actually fight some of them. It's pure fan service and it's awesome. Faith fights Kakistos. Spike battles Adam. Xander faces Anyanka. Buffy fights the Ripper! And his zombie-bears, I kid you not! And Willow! Willow battles vampire Tara, Amber Benson dropping raunchy lines, sultry voice and all that. It's a total riot.
