Well, no. Not really. Not at all, actually, since I spent the weekend wiping out and suffering from all manner of body aches and pains — The unfortunate combination of five months without surf, three months without going to the gym, and a fun board I was still (and still am) getting accustomed to even before my forced hiatus.
Regardless, I was ecstatic to have been back at Crystal with the surf fam again after such a long absence. Being away for that long doesn’t do a body good.
I’ve lost momentum with most of the shows I used to follow religiously, except for Downton Abbey, Jessica Jones, and the Man in the High Castle.
Downton Abbey is mostly over, just waiting for the Christmas Special. My Christmas will be dedicated to the Downton and Sherlock specials haha.
Jessica Jones – I binged in a week and it’s so intense. This is the first time in a long time that violence on a show made me a little squeamish. Also, because all rapists need to have their balls removed without anaesthesia. The ending was a bit anti-climactic, but overall, Marvel is just killing it with their Netflix shows.
The Man in the High Castle – I’m only up to episode three, but I’m really enjoying it. It’s a great what-if; What if the Allied Forces lost World War II? What if the US was Nazi and Japanese territory?
And come on, it’s Rufus Sewell and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa doing what they do best.
I don’t think I’d be enjoying femme!Thor as much as I have it wasn’t Jason Aaron writing it. I really loved his Thor: God of Thunder run and since he already revealed pre-Secret Wars how All-Father Thor got his arm, I’m excited to see where else femme!Thor will match up with it.
Because I have a talent for picking the saddest ships in a given fandom, I made a WolfStar playlist. Let’s be sad and happy at the same time together lol.
