The week is almost over already, which is pretty crazy… The rest of our Thanksgiving weekend went well. Our turkey turned out perfectly, and created a wonderful amount of leftovers for us to munch on for dinners. We watched a few spoopy movies, and didn’t do too much else. It was nice.
It’s been a pretty quiet week at work too, which has been well deserved. This weekend should be a lot of fun… We’re going to a concert Saturday night, which should be pretty awesome. I’m looking forward to it already, despite the good work week.
I’m excited about Halloween, though I’m still trying to figure out something in the way of a costume that I can wear to work. Hopefully I can come up with a decent idea before it’s here.
We decided to go and check out Annabelle today, as we both love The Conjuring, and have been looking forward to an exploration of the happenings around the doll. In terms of horror movies, this one was decent. I honestly don’t get overly freaked out by movies, but there were a few good jump scares. On the other side of the coin, I am disappointed that the film doesn’t actually explore the documented experiences of the real Annabelle doll, but paints an entirely fictional picture. Reading through the accounts of what occurred with the real doll, I think that a fantastic film could have been made that might embellish the truth, much like The Conjuring did. I think that would have made a much better movie.
I played through the final missions in Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor today after we got back. I had a large cadre of Uruk’s under my control, which made the first part of the final batter inconsequential. I didn’t do any of the hard work, the captains and warchiefs too out all of my opposition. The last part of the final batter was sort of a let down, consisting of a few quicktime maneuvers, which finished the game. I was pleased with the conclusion of the game, I found the story elements compelling. There are still quite a few missions to complete. It was worth the investment.
Actually watching The Conjuring now, as Annabelle made me want to take it in. Tomorrow is Fangsgiving at our place! I’m looking forward to getting our turkey cooked.
It’s the Friday before Fangsgiving weekend! I’m really looking forward to having three days off. This will be the first long weekend since assuming my new position, and I’m very much looking forward to it. Yes, last weekend was sort of long due to sickness, but this will be the first legitimate one that I’ve had.
I’m looking forward to spending some more time with Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor, which I haven’t really had any time to focus on over the course of the week. We may also get out to the theatre to see Annabelle, though that isn’t confirmed yet. We’ll see what happens.
Probably most exciting for the weekend is Fangsgiving turkey!!! I’m not sure what day we’ll actually be making our dinner, but we have a turkey, pumpkin pie, and whipped cream all ready to go. We just need a few things to make our meal complete, which we’ll acquire quicker than our last turkey, which was a more spontaneous treat. I look forward to stuffing this time around. It should be a nice weekend.
Back to work today, and feeling better. Still have a headache that’s killing me, and my shoulder is feeling stiff, but otherwise I’m definitely better than I was on the weekend.
I decided to watch Horns last night, to see if it was a decent movie. I tried several times to watch The Woman in Black, but couldn’t get into it. I feared this was Daniel Radcliffe, but I was definitely wrong about that. I won’t go into the details of the film, as I hate spoiling plot points for people. Let me just say that I honestly was very pleasantly surprised by the film. Aside from the easily solved murder, which I’d pieced together very early on, I was surprised by the depth and emotion that went into this film. I hope others can have the same appreciation.
I did get lots of chance to game over the weekend as well. I’m really enjoying Shadow Of Mordor, and I’m more than halfway through the story. Aside from the length being short, the battles are pretty awesome. I love getting into a fight with over 50 orcs and Uruk-hai and coming out victorious. Depending on the captains that show up, battles can go much differently… However the low level captains are a pushover. This will definitely tide me over until Assassin’s Creed Unity arrives.
I have my tenth pair of Fluevogs… and this one is most certainly a good Fluevog milestone. My 10th pair are the first style of Fluevogs that I ever wanted: Frontier Danielsons. When I was introduced to the world of Fluevogs, they were the first pair that stood out for me, and the first pair I wanted to buy. Unfortunately, it was the end of the line, and there was nothing left in my size. Now, I own these:
While browsing the Fluemarket, I discovered that someone was selling this pair of Danielsons for an amazing price. I couldn’t afford to get them, but Heather knew there was no way we couldn’t get them, so she bought them for me. She’s such a sweetie. =)
Sadly I spent much of the day today laying on the couch and trying to rest my body. I’ve been feeling pretty awful all week, and I ended up having to replace myself, and take a day to just crash. I am feeling slightly better, and hopefully after the weekend, I’ll be back to my normal self. I’m very happy about the shoes though, so that makes things better. =)
It’s so hard to believe that October is here! This is an exciting month, mainly due to Halloween, but there’s also a ton of video games that start coming out, and that’s pretty exciting. I already have Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor, which came out Tuesday for the PS4. I’m really enjoying it so far, as I build power and go after various characters. I’m slowing building my power, and I just love how fluid my character is throughout battles. It’s awesome to take on 20 enemies at once and still come out victorious, especially when a chief shows up… or two… or three…
Next up is Assassin’s Creed Unity at the end of the month, which I’m really excited for.
I’m waiting on a very exciting package today, which I’ll probably post about tonight. Heather was amazingly sweet and bought me something we never thought we’d be able to find. As I said, more on that later. =)
I’m excited to see Halloween decoration going up at work, it’s honestly my favourite time of year. I’m currently trying to find a turkey for Fangsgiving, which is coming up very soon. Hopefully we can get most of our extended family over to celebrate with us, as that would be fun.
It’s been a hectic week, as the first of the month often is at work. I’m really looking forward to being done tomorrow night, and enjoying my weekend! I think much of it will be spent hunting Orc!
I’ve spent a week with my iPhone 6, and I’ve got nothing but good things to say. So far the battery life has been amazing, and since it’s been set up to my specifications, it has been a dream. It’s been quicker and more responsive than the iPhone 5, and I am quite pleased with the fingerprint sensor. Getting used to the power button being on the side has been an adjustment, but nothing too difficult.
I immediately slipped my phone into an Otter Box Defender, so I have suffered no problems with bending, as some people have. I do keep my phone in a pocket, but one loose enough that that wouldn’t happen, even if it weren’t in a case.
I’m very happy the weekend is almost here. It’s been a long week, and I’m looking forward to some relaxation time. I think we may be heading to check out the new Spirit store over the weekend, to see what kind of Halloween goodies they have… Other than that, we haven’t made any plans. I know I want to try and get some Fable Anniversary play time in. Just have to get through today first…
