Today is President’s Day in the U.S.
For my President’s Day #morningcoffee picture, I used Lex Luthor. Because I could.
#LexLuthor: A life, some would argue, is a series of problems. There’s no denying the truth in that – but why get lost in it? Why not rise above the truth… and lead a good life? Shouldn’t we look at all the problems is a chance for us to find… solutions? You see, I don’t want to do good things. I want to do great things. Nothing can stop me now! #coffee ?? #morningcoffee #PresidentsDay #PresidentLexLuthor #VoteForLex2000 #Smallville #Metropolis @dccomics
Today was a slightly busier-than-planned day, but still very good. Team DiVa, after sleeping in until after 9:30 on Sunday morning, were up at 7:30 this morning – Diana decided to play with the Kindle, while Vanessa decided that crawling into our bed was her best option. (To be honest, I still appreciate getting kid cuddles when I can, as I know that they won’t last forever.)
After breakfast (cinnamon rolls!), it was a kind of lazy morning… until 10:30, when I got an email from work.
So, I did what any diligent IT guy would do: I made like Kool Moe Dee and I went to work. I got there and looked at the system in question, only to find that there was nothing wrong. At. All.
Back home in time to surprise Team DiVa with a trip to the theatre to see The LEGO Batman Movie. It was a big hit. (Sara and I enjoyed it, too.) Back home again before heading up to Park City for…
…dinner with Liz, a high school classmate:
We met at the Wasatch Brew Pub in Park City, where Liz and her family are staying this week. It’s the first time we’ve seen each other since high school graduation. We had a nice dinner and caught up a little bit on the last three decades. (Man, it really seems like a long time when you put it that way…)
After dinner, said our goodbyes and headed back to Salt Lake City. We got little ladies ready for bed, took care of a couple of chores, I caught up on a couple episodes of The Flash, including one that I somehow missed about three weeks ago.
And that brings us to now.
- I haven’t made any posts about Black History Month, as yet. That said, I’ll just point you to posts from previous years and also suggest that you dig into the rich history on your own…
- …that said, I’ll also throw these out there:
- I’ve gotten back into tabletop gaming; I’m co-GM’ing a Shadowrun campaign.
- 10 Cool Hacks for Amazon Dash Buttons
- This is, quite simply, beautiful: Stunning time-lapse captures the seasons of Norway
- Praise Hera, Mattel’s Wonder Woman Dolls Are Glorious
- I should start ignoring media for Logan. It’s not like I’m not going to see the movie.
- I started playing HALO 5 again, both campaign and Warzone. I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed the game.
- There are rumors swirling about Tilda Swinton as the next Doctor. I’d be aboard for that.
Tomorrow comes soon, I should probably start considering hitting the rack.
