Not much going on this week: work, cook, watch tv, read. Been reading a bit here and there in a few things, primarily continuing my way through The Book of the New Sun (I'm about halfway though the second volume).

After months of not playing anything, I gave in and downloaded a video game to play. I was waiting for The Last of Us 2 to come out (today) so I replayed Dishonored which I first played way back in 2016. Just finished it up this afternoon. I'm not a fan of its first person viewpoint (I never am), but it is a fun game and it (unlike say Assassin's Creed, which I've complained about before) actually lets you get through the missions without killing everything in site. It rewards you for being stealthy and finding alternate means to stop your enemies. This time through I managed to find the non-violent alternative for all the missions. The world building in the game is pretty interesting too (ditto for its sequels).

Still working my way through Star Trek: The Next Generation though I am down to the last three episodes now.

This is feeling like a pointless entry.
