Midway through May now, and we are starting to get a bit more rain. Unfortunately that also means the humidity makes the heat even worse a lot of the time. Evenings are pleasant though!

My Week

  • It's been another 3 months since the last spate of medical errands so we were due and we got a lot of them this week. For the curious, the sort of errands I am involved in are stuff like assisting my parents with teleconsults, going with them to get tests done or going out to buy meds or doing my own regular checkups; I did all of these this past week! My numbers are pretty good, all things considered.
  • Managed to visit my favorite park after a while.
  • Wrote a very long blog post about NES/Famicom games.

A Photo I Took


I took this photo because I was wondering what the story behind it was. The button is above the urinal, so it's not like people could have been pressing it with their foot!

Media Diet

  • Gaming:

    • Single player: Some more Witcher 3, mostly achievement hunting. My Tears of the Kingdom copy got delivered last Friday, and as of this writing (<48h later) I am probably around 12h in already. I am considering just ceding wwhatever productivity I have for the remainder of the month to this game.
    • Online: Magic Arena, Eternal and Marvel Snap daily grinding continue as usual. Managed to do a bit better in March of the Maching drafting this week, though the overall win rate will probably still be my worst set on Arena so far.
  • Reading: Finished reading Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin! I have not yet selected a new book to read next. Feed reader backlog: 117 items.

  • Watching: Still watching The Blacklist S10, am about halfway through the season. Finished watching some stuff (pushing off reviews to next week), still so much other stuff I want to watch.


This past week (Sunday thru Saturday), Fitbit says I walked a total of 70,821 steps and burned 24,641 calories.

This coming week (and beyond)

Next weekend there is another March of the Machine Arena Open which I am inclined to join despite my terrible record for the format so far.

Also, there is an open beta for Street Fighter 6 next weekend!

Trivia team also plans to attend another quiz night this week.
