So, this is hump day for some of you. Wednesday is always one of my days off, meaning this will never, ever again be a hump day for me. I'm okay with that.
Tomorrow is my aunt's funeral. There's a viewing at 1000 I had planned on attending but... There is Omicron. One of our associates died from Covid last week and quite a number are out sick. Should I or shouldn't I? I don't mind going into work because the store is huge. Tomorrow, however, will be in a funeral parlor where the ceilings are not high, and there will be a long line of people waiting to give my four cousins condolences. And since my aunt was elderly, mostly there will be a lot of old people there, old Republicans, to be precise. As I type, I'm rapidly talking myself out of attending.
And yesterday Microsoft dropped some big news! They're buying Activision / Blizzard for $67.8 billion and paying in Cash. Now, I know some will shrug this off with a "I have no interesting in gaming," however this is bigger than gaming. This involves the Metaverse: AI, Cloud Services, Virtual Services, as well as gaming. This company owns one of the most popular mobile games in the world. People waste their lunch time at the store playing this game, and I'm sure everybody out there knows its name: Candy Crush. By the way, I hate this mindless, little game.
