Weeknotes #1: ‘Twas the week after Christmas

Weeknotes: why the hell not? I guess I won't promise that these will actually be weekly, but I'll try. Or whatever.

  • After many years of trying to organize a Christmas vacation with my family, my flight from Vancouver to Vegas was cancelled due to weather — so I never made it. Spent Christmas at home instead with partner and puppy.
  • Have spent most of this week trying to get in touch with Expedia or WestJet to refund my tickets, but so far I have only been passed back and forth between the two companies. Nevertheless, I will persist.
  • Made some tweaks to this here website so it (maybe?) supports webmentions again. Not quite ready to do anything with those yet, but at least I can send/receive them.

📖 Reading

  • Purchased and downloaded, but have not yet started, the ninth book in the Wheel of Time series, Winter’s Heart. I’ve taken a bit of a break from these books after starting the series in December 2020. It’s… a long fucking series. And reading is hard sometimes.

📺 TV & Movies

  • Started (and finished) watching season one of The White Lotus. It’s great! Feeling like I could stand to keep up with current TV a little better. Have already started season two.
  • Watched Prey, of the Predator series. I’m not super well-versed in the Predator movies, but this was pretty good. Thrilled that the dog didn’t die.
  • Avatar: The Way of Water was fine but way too long. Really pretty. Fairly non-stop, as well, which is good given the runtime, but I was distracted by my own need to use the toilet for at least the last 30 minutes.
