First night

I suppose I already fulfilled my quota for the day, but I pictured this more as an evening activity, so...a quick wrap-up. My focus today was on some online catchup, and I did some bills. "Online catchup" is going to be a central theme in my life; it basically encompasses catching up on email, social media, RSS feeds...the whole infostream with which I am constantly bombarded and which, I should add as an addendum, I am also making a goal to regulate better in 2017. I mean, the timesuck involved is ridiculous. It's a little bit harder to regulate these days because I've made some good new friends of late, mostly though cons and game design stuff, and I keep up with them online, so there's that. Anyway. That's also something for deeper analysis later.

So, yeah. Online catchup happened. Bills. I'll need to rework my budget again, but that can wait until my first paycheck of the new year. I had to rejigger a lot of my benefits stuff this year, and though I'm pretty good at tracking my finances, I think I've gotten a little bad at handling them, so that'll be something else I'm beefing up soon. I played some Rise of the Tomb Raider, and I'm at that point where I know I'm like right at the end of the game, so now all I want to do is wander the world for completion's sake and try my best to not finish the game.

I'm behind on my podcasts, so I did a little catching up in that department, too. I've been enjoying watching WKRP In Cincinnati along with the excellent rewatch podcast Hold My Order Terrible Dresser, so I caught up today with four episodes of the TV show and two of the podcast. Things I did not do today: get any exercise or eat anything healthy. I'm good with that. It's a long holiday weekend, and I intend to enjoy it a bit, okay? :)

I feel like LJ used to be the place where I'd share weird links and stuff, too, but I guess that was in the days before Facebook. In the spirit of the old days, though, I leave you tonight with this, the latest in nightmare fuel technology. Enjoy.
