  1. I've just noticed that I won the day yesterday, which takes my total of 'days won' to 50, which I think is quite impressive. 😃

    It also quite possibly means that I spend far too much time on AF ! 😃

      Congrats on 50 wins! Here's to the next 50! 😁

  2. Winning the Day on January 1st is a good way to start the New Year. 😄

  3. I wish everyone here on AF a Very Happy New Year.

      Happy New Year to you as well!

  4. I've got an earworm!

    "Song for Friends", the closing song from episodes 3,8 & 9 of Little Busters Refrain keeps playing in my head.  It's a nice song so I don't really mind it being an earworm.

      You're right, it is a nice song. Haven't watched a single episode of this so cannot comment on the story. I have seen you mention it before though.

  5. There's two things I really don't like about this time of year.

    1: Is the cold weather.

    2: The low bright winter sun that's always below my car's sun visor so that I have trouble seeing where I'm going.

      This! It's always in the early morning and the late evening when the sun makes driving difficult. In my case, the sun seems to settle between my sun visor and rear-view mirror. 😫

      I'm looking forward to spring's arrival. It's always so dreary when all the leaves have fallen off the trees around here.

      Was having this issue with the sun about a month ago, but not so much now. Sadly due to the fact that it ‘s generally dark when I leave for work & dark when I head back home 😢

  6. Last week I upgraded my Internet service to something a good deal faster so streaming is now a practical proposition.

    As a result I've now taken out a subscription to Crunchyroll. Which means I can now watch those series that are not available on DVD/Blue-ray or are too expensive to buy. 🙂

      Congrats. As someone who came late to streaming myself (just 5 years ago), I can say it certainly broadened my enjoyment of anime. Not sure how CR’s UK library compares to the US though.

      There's quite a large selection in their UK library. I've made a start with My Dress up Darling, the interaction between the two main characters is very good and great fun to watch.

      If I might be so bold, some future suggestions based on past series you noted enjoying: Fruits Basket (2019 - 2021 version) • A Place Further than the Universe •  Vivy Fluorite Eye's Song • Laidback Camp • Bocchi the Rock

  7. Look what the postman delivered this morning. 😃 😃

    I'm going to re-watch the TV series then watch the movie.

  8. 😃 I had an e-mail this morning to tell me that the Violet Evergarden Movie that I pre-ordered months ago has been dispatched. 😃 😃

      I've had an e-mail from the Royal Mail to tell me that due to a two day strike by the postal workers union my parcel will be delayed. 😡

      Not that I should be surprised by this, going on strike is a bit of a national pastime at the moment and those professions that haven't yet gone on strike are considering it.

  9. The birds in my area are obviously hungry. I looked out through the window into the back garden this morning and saw that both my bird feeders are almost empty, and I filled them up this time last week!

    When there's a break in the rain I'll go out and replenish them and do my bit to help the local wildlife.

  10. Aarrgghhh!!!!!!!!

    I've just discovered that mice, or some similar rodent, has been eating the top of my car's screen wash bottle!  😡

      I see you got a pic of the culprit :P 

      I had a gable vent on the side of my garage fall out early in the year & then the replacement get mangled over the summer. Turns out it was a family of raccoons (had to have them trapped & relocated). Fortunately just superficial damage & got a stronger screen put on the inside to hopefully avoid a repeat.

      Oh no! Little rascal! >:3

  11. I've installed a new graphics card in my PC, but this time I didn't follow the instructions that came with it and go to the manufacturers website to download the drivers I did that last time and driver install messed up the screen resolution and scattered all my icons randomly around the screen. It took ages to sort the mess out. 😡

    This time I just told the PC to update the drivers and it went to Microsoft Update found and installed the correct driver with no messing about. 😀

      Did it have an Nvidia or an AMD GPU chip? Generally it is said that Nvidia/G-Force plays nice with Windows out of the box and that AMD/ ATI Radeon GPU chips play nice with non-Windows systems. That's a little rule of thumb about choosing the right one for your hardware.

      It's an Nvidia Geforce GPU.

  12. It's temperatures above 35 degrees Celsius I have trouble with. 🥵
