When I took out the garbage this morning, I saw we had received another dusting of snow. The temps are supposed to climb into the mid 30's (F), so I'm not expecting it to last past noon. If the forecasters are correct, next week, when I'm on vacation, however, the temps will not rise above freezing. This is winter. The dogs go out and come back in when it's that cold.
I do go into work today. It's inventory day, of course I'm not involved. This is so much nicer than when I was in management and practically lived at the store in the weeks prior to Regis' purple vested associates swarming over the aisles. Who knows what changes Covid has wrought on the inventory process. One thing that's nice this year, with the snow we've had, the store should be fairly customer free.
Yesterday, Electronic Arts announced the release of Mass Effect, The Legendary Edition. Mass Effect was one of the main reasons I got into gaming. This was the first game which allowed the player to select their gender, you could play as either male or female. Social Conservatives went crazy. Choices you made during the story effected the ending; there were multiple endings, some were good and some were bad. Oh, and did I mention you could have same sex relationships? Choices. Think about that. A set of games where the decisions you make effect the outcome of so many things. Here's the trailer.
And if you haven't been paying attention, the Republican party is continuing to self-destruct. Dimwits, like Ronna Romney McDaniel, are screeching that they need to put the party first. Which Party? She's telling the moderates that if they continue changing their affiliations they will never win back the House, or the Senate, or the Presidency. In other words, she's telling them to just shut up and vote straight Republican, no matter how much you hate the direction the party is taking. She doesn't even want compromise in her own party. Oh, and in case you didn't know, it was under her watch that Republicans lost the House, and the Senate, and the Presidency. Ronna's a big supporter of the failed president. Oh, you say, that explains everything.
If you don't reign in the loons, you look like you approve of them.ReplyDelete
I believe it's too late to reign them in, and have no doubt they'll form the Lunatic Party.Delete
It's been super chilly here too. I went for a run and I had more layers than an onion. I can imagine the doggies do not like it, either.ReplyDelete
And you can choose your gender in that game? Sick. THAT would make me play. And could I shag another player? Does it give me that option? The possibilities...
And the Repugs have never had a stitch of self-awareness. It's all about THEIR power and how to keep it, bae.
I despise Ronna.
Yes, you can have romantic encounters, you can even engage with aliens should you so desire.Delete
And I think the Republicans are about to enter their rinse cycle as their dirty laundry gets washed in public.
the rethugs have been taken over by the q-freaks, the dump dick-lickers, and the batshit crazy evilgelical fuckwads.ReplyDelete
Precisely what I was thinking.Delete
You know, even with the impeachment and other political things going on. I find the news rather quiet since the changing of the guard.ReplyDelete
Mass effect looks cool but I have not been playing many video games lately.
It's seems quieter because the headlines aren't coming from Twitter.Delete
The Republicans have already self-destructed. The anomaly it's morphed into by embracing and fearing the Extremists, Lunatic Fringe and Domestic Terrorists as the bulk of their Base means it's over for them completely. Anyone who ever was a True Conservative and Sane, would never Imagine this can Work with the direction it's gone now.ReplyDelete
