Theatrical Tuesday - Game of Thrones *No Spoilers*

TuesdayI've caught up on Game of Thrones.

The finale was awesome in so many aspects. And I do mean awesome, not just really cool. Points literally struck me with awe. I felt myself cheering at parts, cringing at others, and in shock by the end.

I can't believe I have to wait until . . . Who knows? One friend said he heard Season 8 might not come until 2019! I REALLY hope he's wrong on that one.

I suppose it's good that it ended before school starts. It's one less thing to distract me from my studies.

I'm also caught up on South Park, so I've been trying Bob's Burgers. South Park returns in about 2 weeks and I guess a few other shows will too, but I can't believe GoT is over again already.

Wait, I think I'm behind on Supernatural and perhaps Archer. Maybe it's also a good time to rewatch something like Lord of the Rings?

I'm sure I'll have no shortage of films to watch for my Film and Media in Canada course soon. It's a Tuesday class and I won't have the first one until September 12th because of the way the schedule falls with Labour Day and the first Tuesday being orientation instead of actual classes.

Lots to do in the coming weeks.

There are other things, but I seem to have a pulled quad muscle, so I'm relegated to lighter tasks right now. I do have many things to read, so that is mostly my focus.

I need to finish reading The Glass Castle so I can go see the movie and find out how it stacks up against the book. Judging by the trailer, I might be disappointed. Maybe I'll do this as I catch up on laundry.

Guid cheerio the nou,
R~

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Hanna "Semi Precious" Murphy

A legend in the roller derby community is gone. How and why, I do not know. What I do know is that many are reeling from the news, myself included.  Hanna was known for big hits and a brilliant personality. I experienced her hits first hand as she sent me flying a number of times. Then she'd smile and make sure I wasn't hurt.  I stumbled onto this clip on Youtube from 2012 and I think it shows Hanna as many knew her. She was a force off the track too. As a cofounder of the award-winning Top Shelf Distillers , she gave much to the surrounding Ottawa Valley community.   Hanna was a relatively petite woman and it was she who taught me that I could be mighty despite my size. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I hadn't had the pleasure and the privilege of sharing the track with her.  I'm shocked. I'm sad. I'm upset I'll never see her or speak to her again.  R.I.P. #10. Rae-Rae
