Posted on October 17th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Have you ever seen a body that has been dead for a while? I have. More times than I care to think about. I’m thinking about it now, so that last sentence was probably counterproductive. It is the stuff of nightmares. One of the last ones I saw sticks i…

Where Did That Day Go

Posted on October 14th, 2017 under Posted by

For the first time in a while I am worried that I am not going to make my painting goal for the week. My other half has been ill. Although she is up  now, I guess she has been upstairs for about sixteen hours. She did get out of bed to help me do …

The Lasting Appeal Of Fallout 4

Posted on October 13th, 2017 under Posted by

For better or worse, I am someone who loves the post-apocalyptic genre. I am not so sure I would be too keen on the real thing but as far as entertainment genres go, I guess it is my all time favourite. Other genres have their attractions but I guess t…

Lego – Not What It Used To Be

Posted on October 12th, 2017 under Posted by

Today was the first time I have played with lego for a long while. I was trying to assemble a Lego robot, with the word trying being the most important. Lego has gotten complicated. I don’t remember being able to plug into it and program it to do thing…

Missing Time + Kodama

Posted on October 7th, 2017 under Posted by

I am convinced I must have been kidnapped by aliens at some point today as I seem to have had an episode of missing time today. I definitely remember waking up. It wasn’t much fun and I don’t recall being too happy about it. Way, way too early for a Sa…

Too Many Projects

Posted on October 6th, 2017 under Posted by
