Westworld

So, my wife and I have been watching Westworld lately and I think it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time. The world is well-built, the characters compelling, and the acting top-notch.

Given I am currently writing a book in this same genre, my mind is abuzz with questions that I hadn’t thought about till now. Amazing show. Can’t wait to see how it ends.

Till tomorrow,

Tom

Doctor visit

Had my yearly physical today. All in all not doing too shabby. She adjusted my BP meds a bit, because I’ve been getting some lightheadedness lately. I’m also down in weight since last time, so that’s good.

Excited for the weekend, I have a lot to get done and I look forward to getting some extra rest.

Till tomorrow,

Tom

Colemak Progress

I’m currently up to phase three in my five-part quest to change my keyboard layout. Progress is slow, especially since the ‘S’ key moved one space to the right. It’s SO CLOSE to where you think it should be that you end up making a mistake a lot.

Oh well, I’m getting better each day. Onward and upward.

Till tomorrow,

Tom

Been watching Outlander with my wife

It’s a good show, but I didn’t care for the Wedding episode. The main character was way too mopey in it, despite her predicament. My wife, who’s read the book says that this isn’t how the scene plays out in the book, which is too bad.

The issue with the episode is that she’s going through this massive internal conflict, that she needs to come to terms with, and given the medium, all she can do is drink, mope, and deadpan into the distance. Why, in a story that almost always starts and ends with narration from the MC, would they at least not try to put in some narration.

Oh well, the rest of the story has been great though. Looking forward to the rest.

Till tomorrow,

Tom
