When you hit middle age you really only have two choices: you can get fat and lazy until you roll over and die, or you can can get off your ass and do something, like maybe ride a bike.
I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Divide and.. what?
Okay, so it's Thursday and hump day was rather slow. The weather was again rather brisk. I know, I was buffeted by 20 mile per hour gusts as stood by the gas pumps filling my car's gas tank. Right now it's sunny outside. That will pass. Clouds will soon be sweeping into Central Pa as another storm moves our way. This one might be blustery enough to give us an inch of snow... the definitive words being 'might be.'
I do get to work this afternoon. Whether the store will be busy or not is difficult to say. The weather will have some say in the matter, but not as much as it will this weekend. We're approaching spring and people should be getting itchy about working in their lawns. Me? I want a nice day when I can rake up the winter's detritus; leaves and sticks have been partying outside the fence for too many months now.
After playing Atomic Heart for a few weeks, I found myself bored to tears. Same old, same old quests with just slight variations. The good thing is that I got it through Game Pass, the XBox subscription service so I didn't spend money on it. Being bored, I bought Hogwart's Legacy, downloading it last night. I've never been a big Harry Potter fan, though this game takes place 100 years before Harry's saga begins.
I saw that old Mitch McConnell fell. At 81, he's considered elderly. His bitter, brittle bones bounce badly at that age. And he is bitter. His legacy has been terribly tainted by Trump. Of course, he's always been a staunch defender of greed, so I don't think his legacy was too good to begin with.
Kev McCarthy left Marjorie Tayler Greene in charge of the House yesterday. This must have been part of the agreement he made with her to get her to vote for him. If my memory servers me correctly, this was the 2nd time since he's been Speaker of the House. While this may endear him to her base, every time he does so her stupidity embarrasses him. Under her guidance, the House passed a resolution to visit the jailed January 6 insurrectionists... in jail. She wants to be divisive. It's part of the Republican plan to divide and conquer America. (Can you hear me laughing?) In order for that to work, they need to convince a large portion of the Majority to believe Republican talking points. They have no idea that at this point, all they're doing is talking to the base. Everybody else is growing more and more angry that these dumb bricks managed to have themselves voted into a slim majority. I believe it was Biden who said that Greene's stupidity is the best thing to happen to Democracy.
I heard cancel culture was unsuccessfully boycotting Hogwarts Legacy. Nice to see you are not.ReplyDelete
This is the first I've heard of that. I know Rowling's opinions have gotten her in trouble, not that she'll care. She's too rich.Delete
I'm not a gamer (wouldn't know where to start) but that Harry Potter game looks pretty good. Nah, scratch that. I don't get enough done as it is, so I don't need to get hooked on that!ReplyDelete
It's very entertaining so far. Though I don't know if I'm really going to enjoy casting spells.Delete
Lettings that dumb bitch be inc harge shows just how woefully inept KKKevin McCarthy is.ReplyDelete
As for Mitchy, did he land on his back and was anyone able to turn the Turtle over??
He evidently did a header. And that McCarthy's not to happy his given Carlson those tapes is getting so much bad press. That man has no breain.Delete
My son is a big fan of the XBox subscription service. He is currently enjoying a game called Grounded with his buddies. I am looking forward to spring someday.ReplyDelete
He's right. Gamepass is great! And spring is just around the bend.Delete
