Re: Remembering How To Shift

I... I made an offer on a house and it was accepted. WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I can always chicken out after the inspection, because I have an inspection and a financing contingency, right? RIGHT?!?!? *runs screaming into the void* May I suggest learning your breaker box? And where all...

Re: What are we watching?

Watching Lucifer, which is fun and does have moments where it feels almost a little Sandman-y, at least moreso than I expected, but boy is it a heteronormative take on the character, which I'm sure you wouldn't get in a Gaiman version of the character, especially since the show's Lucifer is actuall...

Re: What Are You Reading? Chapter 42

Whilst downloading various samples, Olivia Atwater’s Half A Soul caught my attention. It’s book 1 in Regency Fairy Tales, and I’m like, well, Bridgerton would’ve been better with less sex and more magic and fae, so... yeah. Zoomed through the sample, wanted more ended up only stopping because it was...

Re: Regarding Sir Pratchett's Interesting Times

I will first admit that I am whiter than white and sometimes racism flies right past me and I don’t notice. But... always remember that Pratchett was a satirist. And a cynic. And I have seen pictures of his workroom, there were stacks of book, books on shelves, books being used as bookmarks in open ...

Re: Remembering How To Shift

I have my two weeks after shot 2 mark, still no mutant powers. Shot 1 kicked my butt a day after getting it, but second shot was very mild. First shot though? I was like that, with added chills whenever I dared to out from under the blanket, for like three weeks. Yeah, I “survived it”. But only beca...

Re: What are we watching?

Yeah, I suppose I should devote some time to Justice League, but... blah. Yesterday I had some decent speeds and downloaded the first two eps of Doom Patrol. I assumed that they were placed in viewing order, but apparently they were not and I watched ep 2 first. um. As if the show wasn’t already co...

Re: What are we watching?

I assumed that my smart telly would have an HBOmax app. Yeah... No. so, getting a movie onto my tv is quite annoying. We ditched the landline years ago, could only get DSL on the ancient copper wires (seriously, my dad was a phone installer and he knew when those lines were put down and “maintained”...

Re: What are we watching?

Ep 2 had a Blonde Chin (with bonus Elvis sneer) and his Smarmy Sidekick. And yes, they are assholes. Kinda got into a buddycop groove with Bucky and Sam. I like it just fine, but I would rather just binge through at my pace, not their release dates. Oh and thanks disney, for the cheerful, hey, we’re...
