Instead, I nerded out and created a spreadsheet of all the books in my Goodreads list, using its Export function. I put it into Google Sheets with the idea of trying to pick a random book from over 2,200(!) books in my Want to Read list. It's not as easy as it sounds! I created a new column with a random number in it and sorted by that, took the top one, and now I'll read it!
I also vegged in front of the TV and watched an amazing movie on Netflix. *Wind River* is an intense, violent, tearjerker about a missing Native American woman. Oddly enough, a similar subject, dealt vastly differently, in *Rustic Oracle*. It stars Jeremy Renner on the hunt and really good. Amazing scenery and cinematography. Highly recommended.
I am hoping I will be ready for another *Halo 3: ODST* mission tonight. Feeling a little better now. I will take Phineas for a long walk at lunch, enjoying the crisp sunny autumn weather. I almost had to put on a sweatshirt to take him out this morning. Yeah, the simpleton won't go out without company. What a weird dog.
It has been some busy days in the salt mine, but luckily with fewer pointless meetings than before. I actually had to refresh my calendar a few times before I believed there were no scheduled meetings after our morning standup. I actually got some work done yesterday and will try to carry the momentum over today.
I've already gone on a long walk with Phineas. We got dropped off at the local market to pick up some skim milk, but unfortunately they were out. But I grabbed a breakfast sandwich as a consolation prize and we walked the mile back home. Gorgeous, crisp sunny fall morning. My favorite time of year. Wish he didn't poop so much. What dog poops 3 times during a 20 minute walk? He continues to find new ways to be annoying :)
So tempted by the Rebellion sale on Steam. Zombie Army was one of our favorite 4 player co-op games and C and I had a blast with Sniper Elite 3. So Sniper Elite 4 and all its DLC at $14 is a great deal. But the Rebellion Anthology adds all kinds of cool titles. Lords of Magic is one of my all time favorite strategy games, but I don't own it digitally, just on disc(!), so toss in all the Lords of the Realm games, a Battlezone game, Evil Genius, et al and I am this close to hitting the Buy button.
