I had a phone interview which led to a Microsoft Teams interview this week. I don’t think I’ll get offered the job, but just having the interview helped me feel a little less trapped in this current job, which continues to get worse. My wife also had an interview this week and has another scheduled for Monday. I’m hoping things are turning around for us and we can get back on our feet shortly.
I mentioned Intergalactic, a British sci-fi series a few weeks ago that I was excited about. Well, I gave the first episode a shot and turned it off. Wow, was it pretty bad and not in a fun way.
I’ve been making my way through Star Trek Picard: The Dark Veil, which is a Riker/Troi story based in the Picard universe. So far, it’s pretty amazing and I’m enjoying it. I’m hoping after I finish it to check out Andy Weir’s new book Project Hail Mary, which I’m hearing great things about.
I’ve been playing WRC 9 quite a bit on the PS5 and I’m looking forward to the SRX Racing game that is releasing next Friday on PS4. It’s developed by Monster Games, who did the Tony Stewart sprint car games which I loved. This looked like the next generation in that franchise with the addition of Stadium Trucks and the SRX series. Plus the $40 price tag warms my heart and helps my wallet. If I get half the amount of time out of it as I did the last game in the series, it’ll be well worth it.
The Fayetteville Comic Con is running next month and they recently announced Gigi Edgely as a guest. I’m a big fan and have heard she’s one of the best guests you can meet a comic con, but I’m still quite skeptical about people social distancing and being crammed in such a tight place. It doesn’t look like the con is offering photo ops, which seems wise to protect the celebrities, but I’m curious to see how it all plays out. There’s a wrestling convention in late July as well as Galaxy Con which I’d love to attend, but I just don’t know how I feel about those sorts of crowds right now.
