I Finally Built a LEGO Apollo Saturn V

It took  me the better part of two days to put it together and I still don’t have a good place to store it, but I’m happy with the final product, it’s very cool!  Impressive in size, the instructions had never 300 steps broken down into 12 different bags.  There’s an amazing support system on the inside of the rocket, no one will likely every see those piece again, at least until I inevitably drop it some how or my cats get a hold of it. Here’s what LEGO has to say about it: Display and role-play with this majestic...

AMC’s Preordering system is a disaster

Today I bought tickets for Tomb Raider and they printed my Avengers: Infinity War tickets along with them, because I guess I need to hold onto tickets for a full month? This was all after we had to go to three different automated ticket machines because either the touch screens were broken, the printers were broken or the card readers were broken.  I could have gone to the customer service desk, but every time we go to customer support they tell us passive aggressively that we can always choose to use the automated machines.  We really thought it would be quicker...

Feeling sick

It’s been years since I’ve had a stomach virus this bad, it’s been like two days and I’m still feeling pukey. Ugh. I’m blaming this on the family that I went to see over the weekend, one of them was sick too 🙁

Low Blow from The Atlantic

Spencer Kornhaber of The Atlantic has a completely tone deaf piece in which he protests entirely too much about Justin Timberlake’s nearly perfect Superbowl Halftime show: www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2018/02/justin-timberlakes-sad-super-bowl-anti-spectacle/552290/ So why point it out? to show that you can’t make everyone happy. He did a very touching tribute to a great artist (Prince) who had a pretty unfortunately rocky and regrettable Halftime show of his own and some how JT a thief of “black swagger”? I expected more from The Atlantic 🙁

State of Union Stream of Consciousness thread!

Adam Selvidge DJT already sounds tired, like really tired. Is he going to make it through this speech? Adam Selvidge 5 time draft dodger thanks military member who did an amazing job at saving people during one the hurricanes that hit us in 2017 Adam Selvidge I had forgotten about that crazy guy that ran onto the baseball field and shot the place up, I’m surprised that he’s bringing that up considering what the reaction was to it at the time by his administration (do nothing, send thoughts and prayers) Adam Selvidge 2.4 million news jobs, but he’s not going...

I was selected for jury duty

but when I called in today, I was told that I was released, which is both a relief and a bit of frustration, I’ve never served on a jury before and thought it would be be neat to try it out. I’m sniffing a bit from my latest round of the flu, so I’m definitely more happy than I am sad.
