I would suspect that's a feature of your total cookie ban.

Never seen it. I hardly ever watch that kind of stuff.

But due to late night boredom in Dumb Dumbland (everyone went to bed at 10 p.m.) I did watch the first episode of this. Did anyone watch it?

We just finished the series this afternoon. It leaves far more questions than answers. It is very good and I suspect it takes multiple viewings and a solid foundation in the classics to fully appreciate.

Cut a couple of lawns. Performed other springtime yard activities.

Benson supervised.

Maybe (if they're actually in it) they'll go to the Knoxville regional.

It seemed like there was potential, but the first episode started out really slow. I was curious if it got better.

cut my in-laws yard today. They work too much.
took me 20 mins.

Whats the premise.

It is a slow burn, but if you can walk away halfway through without dying of curiosity you're not human.

People can have a chip installed that allows their work personas to be separated from their home personas. At that point it sounds like a weird Dilbert, but the feel is like a weird cross of The Matrix, The Good Place, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Dante's Inferno, and (from what I understand) Lost. And it is incredibly emotionally draining and cerebral.

Directed by, of all people, Ben Stiller, who clearly has more in his head than he lets on.

Interesting. I feel I already operate this way. I am a completely different person when I am at work.

Time constraint or money constraint?

​​​​​Seems like there are answers to both of those.

Time. I have a very busy week. Seeing if an old friend can install a new one. Was starting to cook this evening and the hot water was lukewarm. Went to the basement and found it leaking from the bottom. The thing is over 17 years old.

Between that and the cut tire, this has been a bad day.

I assume that feeling is how the premise started. My one fear is that they don't have a real plan and just threw a lot out there and don't have the wherewithal to bring it home.

I've avoided it because I heard that it's can be pretty ******g depressing and disturbing. Yeah, I don't need that from my entertainment.

I didn't read the article but, the other day, I saw something in my feed along the lines of, "GRRM can't understand how fan disposition can retroactively change, going from loving something to hating it."

I LOLed and kept scrolling.
