I got my replacement keycaps to fix my keyboard. It’s amazing what a difference those little raised nubs on the home keys can make. I saw a 30k piece jigsaw puzzle today. It was on sale for $389. I thought about it for a second, then passed. I figure for me to do a 30k piece puzzle, there would have to be a prize for completing it. Like two GTX 1080 Founders Edition gaming video cards with 8GB of RAM each, and a Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX with tempered glass case in black. I’d do a 30k jigsaw puzzle in a few weeks if that was the prize.
Obviously, I’m researching for my next gaming PC build. I’m not playing any PC games that my current build can’t handle, but that will probably change soon. In the meantime, I’m having fun using online configurators at various gaming computer companies. So far, the most expensive configuration was over $10k. But it was massive overkill for World of Warcraft. Especially after the latest update. I finished reading The Neutronium Alchemist, by Peter F. Hamilton. It’s book 2 out of a 3 book series. It ended abruptly during a major crisis, but at least the protagonist wasn’t literally falling over a cliff this time. It always makes me laugh when he does this. I’m reading Indexing: Reflections by Seanan McGuire presently. It’s the second and final book of a modern day fantasy about fairy tales. I’m enjoying them a lot.
I’m over my recent hormonal crash for the most part. Spending some time in the Star Wars universe was just what I needed. Unfortunately, I broke my lightsaber while demonstrating my Jedi skills in front of a mirror. I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to fix it, though. If I ruined it, I’m going to get the Mace Windu purple one. I think I might be over Pokémon Go. When I realized someone was sitting in their parked car at 11:30 PM, in anticipation of anyone defeating his Pokémon at a gym in the park across the street, it occurred to me that it’s potentially dangerous. Yay for the formerly sedentary types who are finally getting some exercise. Yay for the advancements in augmented reality. But don’t risk your well being over a game. If you die over Pokèmon Go, it was probably astonishing you survived this long, anyway.
