The voice sync on the cable box is off by a tiny bit and man, is that annoying! Verizon support couldn't help, altho they did expose a menu I have been playing with to see if I can get it closer while they ship me a new box. This new one supports 4K, so I can't wait! Love my TCL Roku TV.

I heard screams of pain from the salt mine, so I wasted an hour trying to help out. Maybe I can just show up an hour late on Monday for the shift, right?

Played some D:OS2 with Chris last night. There's this one battle we should be able to win, but just haven't been able to yet. Gave it another try last night, but got our clocks cleaned again. With just a little bit of luck, we should be able to do it, but I dunno!

## Morning Mastodonians!

Had a good day yesterday. Got a few things accomplished (change bed, prep living room walls for painting) without straining too hard :) Today I would like to play "Robinson Crusoe" while watching "Cast Away" and fold my clothes. Small victories, you know?

I just want to make sure I feel like I've done something, even if it is just fun. Like finish a book or play a longer game. I have a few plans for today, so I gotta get on that. It includes FaceTime for one of our foster kittens, who may have an adopter. He's a doll.

Never even glanced at the salt mine yesterday.

During the long walk, I finished the amazing audiobook for Max Brooks' *Devolution*. I wasn't done when I got home so I just sat on the steps to finish it. I couldn't "put it down" as it was. Wrote up a review:

Still writing my 750 words - 177 days in a row so far. I'll have the coveted Pterodactyl for 200 days in a row some time early next month. Too bad it is mostly just drivel and wasn't, say, a book or something!

Didn't do too much yesterday for the first day of . My wife is very cute, as she is trying extra hard to not push any "honey do" projects on me. I know it has to be killing her! I ran some errands, took a long walk, played some Legend of Drizzt.

I took this week off because I have 2 developers starting for me, next Monday and the Monday after that, so I will be plenty busy. I'll check emails on the work computer, but I hope to stay away from it. I could easily get sucked into that mine shaft and never make it back out!

So what else to do? I guess I really want to make sure I just don't spend it doom scrolling on the Web. I'm going to try and play some of the bigger, meatier solo games I have. Also maybe pick a computer game to play, like "Mad Max", "Gloomhaven" or "Tomb Raider". And read! And watch movies!

Had a pretty busy weekend. Beginning to think about a major kitchen renovation, so that's quite overwhelming. Some foster kitty running around. Even played some hockey.

So, it is day 1 of my week long . Should be interesting and unique, as my wife has promised to not push (too hard?) on me getting the "honey do" list items done. I would like to get the living room painted, but I like painting. This is going to be really different, as my previous in June was spent building the patio, so there wasn't much rest there!

Dad Lunchbox Joke of the Day; Why did the ferret get a job as a used car saleman? 

He wanted to be a weasel.

(apologies to all the nice used car sales people out there)

But I have to get busier in the salt mine. I need to have the ducks in a line for the new minions starting when I get back. Still getting used to this managing thing. Not crazy about it, but you do what you have to do.

Even if we aren't traveling, looking forward to a week off. I'm going to tell the wife I'll work for her 1/2 day and have 1/2 day myself. That's fair, right? I should be able to finish the living room in that time span.

Then a couple hour of Killing Floor 2. I convinced the boys to bump the level up one notch and yeah, we weren't able to finish a map. But we almost toppled the boss monster by the end of the night, so I think it was the right thing to do.

Lots of computer gaming last night. A couple hours with my daughter R, playing Day of Defeat. Our Neo|SR group is a fun gang to play with and we always have lots of laughs, esp. when she is on the other team. Not sure what to think of her evil chuckle when she knifes me from behind (she is a much better player than I am)...

Why is the sky so unhappy? 

It has the blues

Stay safe. Wash your hands. Wear a mask. Social Distance. All you need is love, love, love...
