Zero Lives: 2022/10/31
We’re back just in time for the best holiday of all time! Flight came in yesterday afternoon and after gorging ourselves on Taco Bell and ice cream (I never want to see another croissant in my life), we passed out only to wake up still on European time.
Portugal was fun, even if it was unseasonably warm and humid. I don’t think I’ve sweat as much as I did during that trip. Each time we would return to the hotel, I would be absolutely drenched in sweat. It was disgusting and I smelled awful. But the city itself was beautiful and the people were beyond friendly.
What I’m Playing
Fuck and all was played this last week. After completing the Ghost Writer Seal for Destiny 2, I put all gaming sessions on hold. With traveling and my sleep schedule getting absolutely destroyed, I simply didn’t have the time or interest. I did spend some time this morning installing a bunch of stuff that I need to get caught up on like Gotham Knights, Resident Evil Village’s Winters expansion, World of Warcraft, and Modern Warfare 2. Now that I’m back home, these updates should go back to an old, similar structure.
What I’m Watching
We were able to get caught up on Bob’s Burgers and Los Espookys. The latter was able to pull itself together after more than a few questionable episodes. It was like watching a drunk stumbling about and then righting themselves just before going into a wood chipper.
Bob’s Burgers hasn’t been doing anything terribly special as of late, which is disappointing. I don’t know if the charm has worn off or if this season simply isn’t on par with previous iterations, but everything since the movie release has been firmly in the “meh” category. At this point, I doubt we’ll get a Halloween episode and I only care about the Thanksgiving episode otherwise.
What I’m Reading
Since I had nothing but time over the course of several flights, I purchased the rest of Chainsaw Man and finished it. Upon reading the last issue, I immediately reread the entire 11 book saga. What started off as silly and over the top kept its humorous tone while adding some real character arcs and throwing in one hell of a big bad. I can’t wait to start the anime now.
None. I’ve been abroad and have done absolutely nothing profitable.
