If you ever feel down on yourself, look at Martin Shkreli and take solace in the fact that you’re not in the running to be the world’s biggest douche. I know, there are a lot worse people in the world and in comparison to all the evil in the world he’s tame but man, doesn’t he just have a face you want to punch?



Kim gets it.

Anyway, life a.k.a work is still busy and I’ve been filling my free hours with either books or television or small amounts of gaming. John’s trying to get me into Borderlands 1 & 2, which is fun but all I can think is that I need to get back and finish DragonAge so I can justify moving on to DragonAge Inquisition. I could write about life stuff but lately I’ve been itching to be a bit fannish and post about the stuff I’ve been watching. Cut for possible spoilers and so I won’t eat your friend’s page.

What I’ve been watching: The flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, OUAT )

I’ll probably do a post about books and life stuff soonish but I think that’s enough fanning about for now.

Over Christmas John and I watched Masters of None on Netflix and have now moved on to watch Aziz Ansari’s stand up specials and now I want to read his book...so yeah, guess I found yet another person to be a fan of. At some point I’ll probably try to watch Parks and Recreation now although it probably will be a while before that happens. I’ve been re-watching Once Upon a Time because I wanted to get myself psyched up/interested enough to watch season 4.

Cut for further OUAT talk )

We also watched The Hateful Eight and the latest Sherlock episode. Overall, I liked both. I mean, there were flaws in both but they both kept me interested the whole time through. I don’t want to say too much about either since I know some folks might not have seen one or the other yet.

I’m back at work today and the majority of my office discovered mouse droppings on their desks which was a *lovely* surprise. I was lucky and didn’t have any but cleaned off my desk anyway just in case. Yep, our library has mice. In fact, the whole campus does and I’ve even seen the odd rat around outside the buildings. I want to stress that because if rats were inside the building I'd be freaking the fuck out. This is just one more reason for the library to invest a staff cat/cats in my opinion. We already bring in therapy animals during exam period so.....sadly, no one’s taken up on my suggestion.

Today’s subject line is a chapter title from the electron resource Superman: the unauthorized biography by Weldon Glen. One of my favourite things about working at a library is just seeing the odd titles used. Sadly this resource was being removed when I saw it so I never got to read the chapter but I’m sure it would have been entertaining. I remember Superman's 90s mullet, along with that black and silver costume though I think it was still better than the Superman Blue/Red electricity look.

Overall my weekend was good but pretty quiet. Saturday was spent running errands, making tacos with John and watching Bones on Netflix, also with John. He’s a big fan of the show and related books so he’s gotten me into watching it. It’s interesting because I dislike the main character Temperance but yet find that I’m sort of addicted to watching it. At least I like watching the secondary characters. Have you ever watched a show where you hated the main character or characters but loved the secondary characters?

As for Sunday, I didn’t do much during the day but at night I went to a bridal shower for a woman named Sam who will be marrying my younger cousin Albert next month. I went because Mom didn’t want to go along and I was expecting it to be dull and awkward since I don’t know Sam or her friends/family but it was surprisingly fun. The party Great Gatsby themed, there were lots of great little games, and the two hours flew by. Normally I hate showers, baby or wedding so it was really nice to go to one and not spend the whole time wishing I could leave.

After the shower I went home, watched Defiance & a bit of Cutthroat Kitchen with John before heading off to bed. All in all, it was a nice relaxing weekend.

Random: Greek Mythology as described by tumblr. I always get a kick out of these descriptions so thought I'd share.
