I've been reading back old posts during the 'Bake Off' commercials and trying to think what has changed in my life.
For all my general scifi/fantasy etc. geekery seems well-represented, I don't seem to have talked a lot about Star Trek or Star Wars, the odd reference notwithstanding. I like both, though when it comes to films I'm definitely more a fan of the latter. I've already got The Rise of Star Wars tickets (yes, plural).
I love to watch old episodes of The Next Generation on Netflix, though. It'll be interesting to see what happens in the Star Wars universe when they start showing their live action TV series. The first one, The Mandalorian, is less than two weeks away and there's an Obi-Wan Kenobi series to follow soon.
Fortunately I'll be able to watch those as they're released, because The Netherlands already has Disney+, ahead of the USA and Canada on November 12th. If I remembered how to embed videos the way I like instead of letting Blogger figure it out, I would've included the The Mandalorian trailer.
I still miss K an awful lot. He'll be dead six years in January. I still haven't found an urn I'm happy with as a permanent resting place for my litte bit of his ashes, but I may be closing in on a decision. He and I watched the Star Trek reboot movie so many times together, volume way too high for those thin Amsterdam walls.
Work was good, then less so, and now I'm working somewhere else it's a lot better again. It's a bit busy now because my closest colleague is on holiday, but the jokes on him because once he gets back we have a few days together and then I'll be gone for a couple of weeks. So all the backlog that's building up now, will be his problem.
I'm thinking about bariatric surgery.
I've discovered podcasts. Lots and lots of podcasts. History, films, filmmusic, science, comedy, true crime, dozens of them. I have to revise the lists on this page anyway, maybe I'll add a podcast list.
