January 3, 2022: Watching, Reading, Writing!

As I mentioned the other day, this year I am going to make a concerted effort to read and watch (and, hopefully, write) more in 2022.  More books.  More comics.  More shows.  More movies.  And every so often, I'll do capsule write-ups to help you decide what to check out and, perhaps, what to avoid.…

January 1, 2022: Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  How did you celebrate the countdown?  I rang in the New Year watching the final episode of the 6-part Korean sci-fi  series The Silent Sea.  Great premise, some very cool SF elements, and some memorable moments but it was a little slow at times.  Overall, a worthy watch. We commemorated New Year's…

December 30, 2021: What’s on the reading horizon for January, 2022!

Sis sent me the this pic from back in the day.  Truth is, if you'd have taken a photo of me at any point in my life, chances are good I'd have been holding a book. Which makes it downright shameful I won't be posting a Best of Reads for 2021 since I did little…

December 29, 2021: Today is Wednesday!

I went through most of yesterday under the mistaken assumption that it was Wednesday, so my weekly Amazing Covers post was one day early.  So today, in atypical Wednesday fashion, I bring you some delicious dishes we enjoyed prior to heading into pre-lockdown mode... A few of the dazzling dishes we enjoyed at 156 Cumberland…

December 25, 2021: Merry Christmas!

I got new pillows for Christmas.  Akemi suggested I throw out a couple of my old favorites and I strenuously objected.  And, just to prove a point, I slept with five pillows last night.  Pictured above: a dramatization. Hmmmm.... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1474857559882407936 Also hmmm... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1474838187134619654 One of the most delicious things I ate this holiday season was…

December 24, 2021: Tis the (post) season!

Christmas Eve is upon us.  And you know what that means, right?  Yes!  It's time to reflect back on the past few months and take stock of how your fantasy football team has performed. Well, this was the first year I really didn't pay that much attention to fantasy football.  Part of it was a…

December 23, 2021: Change of plans! I’m spending Christmas with YOU!

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1473135816847286278 I can neither confirm nor deny ny of the accusations being made against me. https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1473697085811736584 Of course, I could just stay at the Iimperial Hotel and come visit every now and then. Alas, there will be no Christmas in Montreal this year (like last year).  Given the recently announced shutdowns, lockdowns, and general panic,…

December 20, 2021: The heart results are in! Dun-dun-DUHHH!

The results of my echocardiogram arrived in the mail today.  The conclusion: "The study was technically good". Technically? "The left ventricle was normal in size". Okay.  So far so good. "The aortic valve was trileaflet and normal with no regurgitation". To the best of my knowledge, this also seems okay. "The mitral valve leaflets were…
