  1. In case you ever run into a caterpillar....
  2. I did something - not even sure what - this morning that messed up my back. Took some meds and since then I've just been trying to find comfortable positions that don't make my back scream.
  3. I thought I'd check out the first couple episodes of the latest season's lineup. All these isekai are starting to blur together. Getting deja vu all over again from "Failure Frame" for instance. It wasn't so long ago that we had basically the same thing with Arifureta (etc etc) after all, and just last season we had Chillin' in another world. Only two episodes in so there's still room for differentiation with "Failure". I'm wondering if we really need another version of basically the same plot tho. I'm a devotee of the 3-ep rule so there's one more to go but at this point I'm not likely to continue.
  4. There's something wrong with me. Just seeing this mentioned and now I have the narwhals song stuck in my head. I have the same problem with hampsters. File that under "you know you spend too much time on the web when ...". Carry on.
  5. While doing a bit of exploration / wandering in MC I found a town with a cleric, a weaponsmith, a fletcher, and a librarian. Decided to do some basic farming (cows, sheep, rabbits, wheat) and level up the townsfolk so I can get some equipment upgrades. There's some interesting / useful biomes nearby too so I think I'll be using it as a base of operations for resource gathering for a while as well.
  6. Yesterday I watched 13th Warrior. The blurb on the box says, The Muslim in Viking lands is a fun plot device and while the protagonist is initially clearly of the "these are barbarians" mindset he eventually changes his mind. Once we get into the serious part the story seems like it's heading in a decidedly fantasy / supernatural direction but it actually comes back around to reality in what I thought was a very satisfactory way. It's pretty old at this point and it bombed at the box office due to a lot of competition and not enough money for advertising but it is a good if underrated story that I find worth a rewatch now and then.
  7. Played some more minecraft, scouting around for a good town to turn into a base in my hardcore game. I like exploring and one of the great things I've found about the distant horizons mod is that it lets you see places that are over a day's travel away. Not only does that let me plan my expeditions better but by providing distant landmarks it also tends to keep me from getting lost so much.
  8. Started watching Sankarea. Again, I think. (I'm not sure but the first few episodes seem very familiar.) Might not finish it due to that. It's also pretty odd.. zombie-obsessed boy meets depressed girl who commits suicide by drinking boy's potion, which instead turns girl into perfect zombie gf so boy turns on air conditioning full blast and keeps girl in his room. Yeah. Like I said, pretty weird. Not the strangest anime I've ever seen overall but probably in the top 10.
  9. I don't care either. For the most part. They can rearrange the flowers all they want, but when they want the furniture moved (again) how come I'm always the one whose todo list it lands on? (Been there, done that many, many times. )
  10. Just enjoyed the view. I really like this mod. (DH) Would have been even better with a fishing rod. Unfortunately the water freezes up here.
  11. Exhausted. With the 4th falling on a thursday this year management had encouraged us to take a couple extra days of vacation and to postpone meetings and such until next week. Someone must have jinxed it however because it's not even Wednesday yet and one of our "cloud" servers that runs a bunch of our telemetry processing systems wouldn't reboot after a firmware upgrade, then the TDRSS people decided they needed emergency DSN coverage to support one of their satellites.. over a link that hasn't even been tested since 2013. (Of course it didn't work.) I still have over 150 emails that I haven't even had a chance to read yet.. and that's just for today! Taking a break now for dinner before I tackle that/those.
