I have a four day weekend. I'm glad for it.
Seriously, though. Not just for the normal reasons, but also for the recovery from the influenza nonsense. Mostly that, really. I need sleep. I need a lot of sleep. And I have the opportunity to get it. Which is happiness.
Yesterday, I stayed up after work until the afternoon. Then I snoozed on the couch until chow. Then I snoozed on the couch until 1030p... then to bed with us. I woke at 0800. Had some breakfast and then snoozed on the couch till about 1130a. I needed all that sleep. I could use some more. I'm going to go have some couch time here in a bit.
The result of all that sleeping is that the normal days off went by lickety split. I mean... I'd be back to work tomorrow under normal circumstances and it doesn't even feel like I've had any days off at all. Cuz that's the problem with sleeping all afternoon, night and morning, yeah? The day is all gone and you don't see much of it.
But. I need the sleep. Obviously.
I didn't really do anything today. I've spent most of the day playing Tropico 6 and trying to figure out what the fuck I'm doing. I've got the money making business figured out now. Which is awesome, cuz I sucked at that before. Now it's the staying in power bit. I'm apparently doing something wrong as people end up not liking me and voting me out. I'm not sure how I'm doing so poorly in that regard. I try to keep everyone as happy as I can. Perhaps that's the problem? Could well be, I suppose.
Went to the bar for chow. Which means I showered and got dressed and everything. Yay me. It's cold and snowy outside so I'm disinclined to go anywhere or do anything. Though I'm considering going to the movies. Maybe tomorrow or Sunday. We'll see. I would like to see 1917 and I think my mom would enjoy Dr. Doolittle. So... I dunno. I'm not sure if my mom would really enjoy the former... and the latter wasn't playing locally yet. We'll see what tomorrow brings, I guess.
I may decide it's nice to just stay inside and not be in the weather. Cuz the weather sucks ass.
And it's the next day cuz... I apparently got tired and stopped writing. Or something. I dunno. Probably distracted by something. Then decided I was tired and then went off to lie on the couch. I know I ended up on the couch, so... I'm guessing that's it. I really don't know though. I don't remember.
I might go to a movie tomorrow. I'm debating. The only movie I want to see that's out right now is 1917, which I don't think mom would appreciate much... but she'll still go, cuz it's the movies, yeah? And then do I go to the earliest movie... to avoid crowds and pay less or do I go to the next one after... then go out for chow after? Cuz I have a gift card for some food... so that would be a good thing. But then there's the whole wondering if I'll feel up to all that... cuz I'm not sure I'd feel up to all that today.
Well. Whatever. Maybe I'll just stay home and game. It's cold outside. And snowy. Stupid weather.
It's like that ^^^^ outside. So... yeah. I don't live there, but yeah... it's like that. And probably worse today than yesterday as it was doing the freezing rain/sleet thing when we came home from the bar last night and then you know, it got colder overnight. So... yeah. Not really enthused about being out and about so much. Not that I fear my driving, but... idiots like this, on the other hand, I drive with them all the time. Some people think they can drive as they like, regardless of the weather... particularly on the interstate. Ice and eighty miles an hour, goddamn it! Yee haw! Dumbasses.
I still need to figure out my controls again on Red Dead 2. It frustrates me cuz I can't get past this stupid mission I'm on... because I've become unfamiliar with the controls. Argh. Annoying as hell. I'll get it done, eventually, though. Probably start today.
I'm tempted to keep playing Tropico 6 though, too... because I'm right there as far as figuring out how to do the game well. Not quite there, but almost. And that makes me want to put time in. But... I really do need to work on RDR2. Tropico is a summer game... it's on the pc... it's not summer. It's PS4 time. Must work on that...
And it's easy once I get started. It's just so much easier to plop down here at the pc and start playing. I have to put in a little more work to get going on the PS4... nothing startling... just furniture rearranging and all that fun stuff. When I don't feel well already, just a wee little bit of resistance, as it were, can throw everything off.
I think I might lie about for a while this morning and watch some Gaelic football. Looks interesting. I found an old game from 2017, so I think I might give that a watch for a while. Probably end up sleeping through it after a bit, but I feel the need for a nap already and I've only been awake a couple hours. Doh! Fucking flu.
There's some curling on the same YouTube page as well. I don't think I've ever watched curling. I might give that a whirl at some point, too. Football here is about done... and then there is no sport worth bothering with until next fall again, sooooooooo...
At any rate... I'm off to do something or other. Cheers.
