Weeknotes 2021-10-31

It's the last day of October. And Halloween, I guess. If that means something to you.

The world:

  • Local politics still depresses me. Let's not talk about it today.
  • On the upside, local Covid numbers are getting better, hopefully a trend that continues through Christmas. We're actually starting to inch closer and closer to the recommended 5% positivity rate! Though we'll see how the lowering of alert levels affects the numbers in the coming week.
  • Big news in the tech world this week is how Facebook has rebranded as "Meta", which is personally a bit "meh" for me. I mean, they're still terrible for humanity in general.

  • Watching:
    • Actually haven't watched much of anything this week. I'm halfway through Dune (2021), will probably try to get through the rest of it this week. Started watching the new season of The Simpsons, something I still keep up out of habit. Actually also started watching Saturday Night Live eps as background watching.
  • Gaming:
    • The regular fare:
      • Great Ace Attorney Chronicles and Tales of Symphonia, both ongoing and hoping I can finish them this year.
      • Daily fighting games ongoing on weeknights: Guilty Gear Strive and Street Fighter V!
      • My daily card games: Eternal and Magic Arena. Been having trouble grinding in Eternal, but I did manage to hit mythic on Arena just in the nick of time!
      • A little bit of Super Metroid here and there.
    • Streaming Innistrad Midnight Hunt limited is done. This week, previews for the next set, Innistrad: Crimson Vow. have kicked off.
  • Reading: Still reading The Conjugal Dictatorship by Primitivo Mijares. Slow and steady; I suspect I can finish it this week, if not the next.
  • Trivia team: still bereft of quiz nights, we are just enjoying crosswords on the regular.

This coming week:

  • I believe Eternals is coming out this week, but since we still don't have cinemas (or maybe we do and I'm not willing to go), it may be a while before I can watch it. Might be able to see Shang Chi in a couple of weeks though!
