Darkfoxx 76: The Basics - Again


Recommended Posts

Half Of Wednesday  Friday (oops!)

 

DH is home early today and has settled in to his Cyberpunk-esque game on Steam. My hands hurt from the Switch, so I’ll probably find either something to watch or something to watch + some art to work on in a bit. 

 

I bath tubbed for a whole half hour while listening to the history of lobotomies before dying of boredom. This tub is so frickin long I was either gripping the end with my tiptoes sunk so far down I couldn’t see the screen, bouncing up to float, or trying to wedge myself up so I could kinda see the iPad while not trying to hunch my shoulders quite so much. 

 

Tell me again why people think baths are relaxing? 😆

 

At least this time I wasn’t worried about the serial killer coming to get me. 

 

My Lush bath stuff was also quite nice. I face masked, bubbled, and loofahed till my heart was content. Let’s hope I sloughed off all the bs that’s kept my legs itching to death every night while I’m trying to sleep. 

 

Lunch was good - hubby brought me a microwave udon bowl with dried tofu and a semi-flavorless but still pretty good broth. Breakfast was leftover rice from last night with some hummus & salsa mixed in for good measure. 

 

Last night’s dinner was actually the worst thing I’ve ever had from room service at this hotel - it was something Chinese-ish and so freaking salty it was barely edible. DH’s chicken quesadilla was much better - and I polished off too many of the surplus side of fries. 

 

Totally disappointing - the Chinese restaurant in this hotel is actually really good. They should have sourced it from there - I’d also love their Friday dim sum spread. Even better: walking down to sit in the restaurant. 

 

We may try delivery again tonight - the delivery service we use at home is here too, so payment is super convenient; hiking down to the front gate is less convenient. I think theoretically they’d come get DH in one of the golf carts, but that just seems like it would take too damn long.

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

What day is this? What day did I last update? 

 

It looks like 2 days ago. Probably. My iPad says it’s Sunday. DH is “home” today. 

 

Yesterday? 

 

Took another bath - distracted myself with the goings on of van lifers turned smallish house builders. Was annoyed at my buoyancy and how cold such buoyant parts were. Ended up having a water party when I forgot that sitting while rinsing is a much smarter plan than standing up like someone courting disaster. Oops. Baths. They’re complicated. 

 

Dinner was … um … oh yeah. We ordered Japanese fried chicken - I had mine spicy on a bowl of fried rice. It was delicious. I also had a fair amount of snacks yesterday and a surprisingly good cous cous + spicy tuna bowl for lunch. Breakfast was avocado & Ritz crackers. 

 

Watched a more amusing flavor of redneck - this time pitting monster and/or modded trucks or whatever one would classify a Jeep as against each other in a series of tests. 

 

Competition TV makes me anxious - especially when the consequences of failure are so costly. 

 

Had my 10 minutes with coffee outside; played my games. 

 

I need to log back in to Animal Crossing tonight after 7 to get some seasonal goodies. 

 

I also finished an art piece this afternoon. 

 

#housearrestisgettingold #idontevenreallylikethepoolinpracticebutiwanttogo #Iwanttogositatthecafe 

 

Wednesday? 

 

Also no word yet on next week’s Zoom yoga schedule. I know my favorite instructor is rushing to try and book tix to the UK to see her daughter since Qatar just hit their amber list - which I think means home quarantine v hotel quarantine. I’m sure she would happily quarantine with her kiddo.

Oh man, I’d love to listen to a delightfully batty waitress share her heart out. 

 

Glad I could give you some good flower vibes. :)

 

Ooh. And meant to respond on your thread but was somehow not done talking things out with not actually you in my head when I clicked the button to jump from the page: https://gastography.com/?s=Belter+noodles

 

I love to nerd out about the food in the Expanse. And the culture. And the world building. It makes my little nerdy heart happy to think of these things.

Two words:

God how they lit me up!

 

And have you seen For All Mankind yet? Moore delivers. I'm a huge BSG fan, so I was hesitant, but there was no need.

 

Why is it that dudes always think I'm looking for hyper intelligence in a partner? They think I want some Rasputin guy, (spoiler: it's because their unshakable vanity that they are they smartest person in the room), when what I really want is an Amos. When he put his hand on Anna's shoulder and said "I won't let anything happen to you," I swooned. Also when the escort came for him at the station and he said "First: they started it and Second: they were all alive when I left." I mean. I'm just saying he's my kind of fighter.

I know, right? Rasputin types are boring when I’m behaving, which of course I only learned after years of error. Amos is the best - can’t decide if he’s my favorite character, or Naomi. 

 

Have not yet seen For All Mankind but it’s definitely on the list now. I’m a big fan of pretty much anything Moore. DH is now upset he didn’t see that show before he may or may not have nixed our Apple TV+. Me too - I’m a big fan of Joel Kinnaman.

Most Of Monday

 

Had a rough mandala yoga session this morning - I don’t know if it was the kinda not great coconut yogurt I had for breakfast, my pretty pretty princess system being an ass, girl gripes, or the huge fart I gifted myself at the onset of class, but I battled obnoxious nausea through pretty much the entire 30 minutes. 

 

Played my games, took a small nap in my afternoon chair, lunch was leftover cheese less pizza from yesterday - yet another restaurant that blows the offerings in Doha out of the water - and dinner for tonight has been ordered. 

 

I’ve also been plugging away on cleaning up my sewing-related Pinterest boards, creating a Trello board for all the projects that have caught my eye through this restructuring with a mind toward creating a mood board and then capsule wardrobes, and have gone on a pinning and downloading spree for other patterns - I’m cleaning my roundup Pins to separate patterns, and have signed up with an online linen supplier for patterns there - netting a good discount on some killer looking fabrics that are a bit spendy but not actually for fabric in the process. 

 

I’ve also got a few coloring sheets queued up and have a few reference photos pulled so I can jump to another drawing exercise.

Same.

Once I realized the wizard's motto was essentially "When I finish reading this book I'm going to kick your ass," it all kind of fell into place and lost its (limited) charm.

 

Oi about apple TV, but!! I think For All Mankind might be on DVD by now? Bc it's Moore, it might be worth having on disc, and also allows you to have something internet-independent to watch (assuming you have an drive).

I am not sure if I currently own anything which would play a disc, now that you mention it. Hmm … I think DH’s PlayStation may still have that capability; not sure. 

 

DH used that - and our weariness of the Netflix Channel - to claim some sort of Disney+ deal he forgot we had access to. Score! Didn’t find that off the bat, but did start Loki as our primary show + Clone Wars as our :30 show - we’ve got a lot to catch up on. He also set it all up on my iPad so I now have access to more than true crime YT & flavored rednecks on the 2 channels we get at the hotel - as long as my VPN holds out. VPNs act weird here and the settings differ from device to device. It’s a bit frustrating. Buuuut .. this also means that as long as the settings hold, I can talk to my ladies on the big(ger) screen tomorrow instead of trying to balance my phone on various unbalanced surfaces. #winning

All PlayStation 4 models have an optical disc drive. PlayStation 5 comes in an all-digital version, and one version that does have an optical disc drive. If it takes game discs, it can play DVDs and BluRay.

Yay, penultimate day of house arrest! 

 

Skipped my ladies coffee catch up, was snacky and hungry all day - had leftover mixed rice with some add-ins for breakfast, instant pad Thai for lunch, chicken flavored rice crackers, and wasabi seaweed crisps - all before dinner, which is a club sandwich and on its way. 

 

Also went to get my 3rd PCR test - with another nurse angel that was so delicate I didn’t even have time to balk at the test. 

 

Also played my games for a huge chunk of the day - most of the day.

Is it white? Sharp corners or smooth curves?

 

Sharp corners and blue LEDs on black is a PS4. The PS5 is black with a sweeping white cover shell, and larger than it's predecessor.

 

How big is the PS5? Size Comparison with PS4, Xbox One and PS3 has fans  worried - Daily Star

It’s definitely the 5 - I’ve heard ad nauseam how hard it is to get ones hands on one. 

 

Either way - we won’t be near it for another week, and are unlikely to start buying physical discs or books - that at least semi-portable life and all.

Either way - we won’t be near it for another week, and are unlikely to start buying physical discs or books, even if either of us wanted to wait the 3 weeks shipping for Amazon to get here - that at least semi-portable life and all. I’d rather just find a stream for all that drama 😆

 

Yesterday

 

Got off of house arrest! 

 

Walked our favorite mall, and hip was barking in protest at the forward motion. Checked Caine’s off the list so I don’t have to hear about that for the rest of the trip, either. 

 

Today

 

Breakfasted outside the room. 

 

Came back and Cozy Grove’d. 

 

DH came home and I went to the gym - 150 cals on the treadmill @ 7.5% grade @ 5.2 speed + 3 rounds of 5 rows, 5 deads & 10 swings with the 12kb kettlebell. 

 

Came home and spent way too much time in Stardew Valley, snacking a couple times to tide me over until dinner. 

 

Ordered room service early because we were both starving and getting cranky. 

 

Had a hell of a time getting Disney+ to stream with our iDevices, dongles & VPNs. 

 

Tomorrow is breakfast out, coming back to game and/or hit the gym for some sort of something, and hitting another mall with DH when he gets back. Possibly then dinner out; not sure on that one.

Today

 

Finished my latest artworks last night - started another this evening. 

 

Hobbled to breakfast. Breakfasted. Hobbled back up the stairs to the room, where I surprised the cleaning guy. Cozy Groved while he cleaned - and then DH surprised us both. 😆

 

Mall walked  hobbled, stopping at a Starbucks like cafe with an impressive grab-n-go menu filled with at least some vegan things I can eat & a killer looking chicken tikka wrap I would have loved to get if I was in the least bit hungry. I settled for a chai latte with oat milk while DH had a really good smelling croque and what was basically a caramel popcorn milkshake for lunch. 

 

Came “home”, Stardew Valley-ed, and then walked to dinner(!) In a restaurant(!) With booze(!) and decent sushi. Ate a reasonable amount; my 2 drinks were so sweet I think I have diabetes. 

 

Stardew Valley-ed again, whining each time I’ve had to get up, and am now bouncing between paying attention to Clone Wars, favoriting quickie little HIIT workout videos for when we get home, thinking of what I want to make for dinner when we get home, catching up on threads, and drawing. 

 

Tomorrow, we go take in some culture at The Louvre. We may also hit either the Chinese restaurant we can walk to or the nice bar for dinner. Or, we’ll have snacks. Either way. We still have some snacks left from my pack job.
