    Persona 5 and Stardew Valley were both excellent. I've mostly been playing Surviving Mars lately, which Kenai sucked me into.

    How kind do you need to be?

    It's definitely on the roads too, in this part of the world (even with heads fixed on screens, too, sadly). I don't have a lot of patience for others when I'm in transit, but I don't get angry. More like really irritated. I think it helps that the act of driving defensively contributes to a more passive mindset. Here in Chicago specifically, I feel like my actions are a drop of positivity in a sea of hate, so, no I don't think it makes a difference. Elsewhere in the country though, where it's not all rat race all the time, I feel more confident that being pleasant has an impact.

    I moved!

    She's also bribing with pizza and cookies to help her move.

    Football NFL Season

    Gotta say, the league is tough to watch this year between the catch rule problems showing up again and injuries to high profile players everywhere. Playoffs are starting to get a "last man standing" vibe to them. Still three years left on the deal after this, but the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement is already starting to loom large.

    What made you angry today?

    Gahh, somehow all of the ratings in my music library have vanished. Like a fart in the wind!

    Your best day ever was....

    That's a tough one. Either the day I spent sightseeing in Himeji, or one of the days I spent in a huge oceanside house that the ex and I had rented with three other couples.
  7. I've been to an embarrassingly small number of live concerts, but probably the best one was Jimmy Buffett.
  8. @Spyder , I'm with you on the LotR books. Seemed to me that Tolkien wasn't very good at writing action. Good at world building, though. Sounds like that might be the focus of the new series. Just not sure I'm all that interested in it, especially at the expense of something different. As an advocate for reasonable copyright terms though, it's bewildering to me to see the scope of the legal battles involving a work published over 60 years ago and long after the author's death.

    Just played through the main story in The Witcher 3. Best game I've played in a long time, maybe years. I'm dabbling into the Hearts of Stone DLC a bit now.

    Pretty much got what I wanted this week at Soldier Field. No big injuries, a loss in the standings, some progression with Trubisky, and the coaching staff looking really bad. The actual NFL professional wideout they traded for dropping passes isn't good, though.

    So, am I the only one here...

    I preferred books until recently I tried reading a large paperback and found it surprisingly difficult with my neuro problems. I pretty much have to do screens now. I have a large phone but I've thought about getting a super lightweight e-reader. The bath idea sounds great, too. I wouldn't even consider getting my phone near the hot tub, but a cheaper device, sure.

    Pineapple on Pizza

    Now who would do that to an innocent pizza?

    Yeah, I was in the same boat with the Bears being off (though I should be thankful their games aren't a death march any more like they were through week 4). KC at Dallas wasn't so good, and I think I watched the Monday night game on mute the whole time while I did other stuff.
