Zero Lives: 2022/10/24
~ It’s a small world ~
It’s been over a year, but vacation has finally arrived. I’m currently in the middle of two trips and sitting at the airport, covered in a sunburn. The first leg of this two week trip has me in Southern California, celebrating my sister’s wedding. It’s been far too long since I’ve sent them, so it was good to catch up and just chill.
Aside from that, we popped my Disney cherry. I can totally see now why people love it so. It’s immaculate, there’s a ton to do, and it’s what they promise: a magical experience. We had fun going on rides and the boy and I rode our first roller coaster. It was determined that they are not for us. The lines were long, but they did a great job of keeping traffic flowing.
The Star Wars section of the park was my favorite. They had a delicious ronto gyro/hot dog thing and the Tatooine Sunset, which was like a fruity Arnold Palmer. The Rise of the Resistance ride was mind blowing and easily our favorite. Building a lightsaber was a cornball experience, but I love the final product.
As I type this up, I realize there’s a lot I want to share. Maybe I’ll do a separate post while I’m on my flight tomorrow.
What I’m Playing
Destiny 2 - Festival of the Lost kicked off the day before I was set to travel for the next two weeks. Fortunately, I was able to set up a connection through nVidia’s GeForce Now to turn the iPad into a portable gaming rig. The first leg of the journey was an Air BNB with decent internet, so it ran largely without flaw. The hardest part was going from my 32” ultra wide monitor to a 10” tablet screen. But, first world problems and all that.
Anywho, back to the event. It’s a grind. It was only after I had cleared half of the objectives that I figured out an optimal farming routine. I am a bit miffed that so much of this event relies on playing core activities like Strikes, Crucible, and Gambit. I have to play those enough during the course of a season that I don’t want to touch them during an event. Otherwise, it’s been fun. I love Halloween and I love Destiny 2, so it’s a match made in Heaven. I just wish that Bungie didn’t brutalize my wallet so.
What I’m Watching
Bee and Puppycat - We finished the first, and likely only season, and I am nothing but disappointed. The show spent way too much time setting things up only to waste time with the equivalent of filler episodes. By the time the final episode rolled around, the show completely ran out of time and left a bunch of questions unanswered. Even worse, I’m not confident that it will get a second season on Netflix due to how niche of a show it is.
I’m on my tablet and am not linking each article. Too much hassle. Here’s the link to my post history.
