This Is Not A MMORPG Post #2
It’s not often that I depart from the MMORPG topic of my blog but I’m feeling rather whimsical today and wanted to write a personal related article. Oh how I’m sure a portion of you sit around waiting to hear about the next exciting installment in my private life with bated breath and if you’re one of those folks then in you’re for a real treat over the next few hundred words. And if you’re not, well, why not sit back and relax anyway and try to enjoy my words engulfing you like warm chocolate mousse.
What I’m Buying
A freaking apartment. Yep, I just had my offer on a nice little place accepted last week so I’m currently knee deep in the process of due diligence and purchase. Pretty stressful stuff all-in-all (folk sure won’t overstating when they told me this in the past) but hopefully worth it in the end. If all goes well my wife and I will be home owners come mid October and that’s an incredibly exciting thought.
What I’m Reading
The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, The Eisenhorn Omnibus by Dan Abnett and the complete chronicles of Conan by Robert E. Howard all on my brand spanking new Kindle. I’ve only had the thing for three days and I already absolutely adore it (I just need to figure out a reliable way to read it in the bath now).
What I’m Watching
Sons of Anarchy season 2. It’s a decent show and provides plenty of fun and amusement so long as you’re able to suspend believe for a while. Not that it’s particularly far-fetched as TV shows go but it does have enough silly moments in it to really make you wonder how to the heck any of it is feasible. And why does every TV show have to have the “computer hacker guy” who’s able to miraculously extract any data required from any computer system in the world which – fortunately and coincidentally – happens to be the precise information needed to move that episode’s plot along? Always bugs me and just wafts of lazy writing.
What I’m Wearing
A leopard print thong.
What I’m Thinking
I used to be a big fan of the Smallville TV series a few years ago but only watch it sporadically now. However, I saw it last week and had a brilliant idea (if I do say so myself) for it: cast Jon Hamm in an episode as a The Dark Knight Returns style Bruce Wayne who’s sent back from the future to help or aid Clark in some way. It’s utterly perfect really. Jon Hamm would make a great Batman and this way the writers get to avoid the need for silly looking costumes and what not (I would’ve suggested Clint Eastwood if he wasn’t a handful of years too old now and, let’s face it, far too expensive).
I’m a genius aren’t I?
