coprime: an awesome lady stepping out of a boat (Default)

So...I'm getting married on Sunday. :D And then going on my honeymoon immediately after. :D I am super excited, but it also means that I'll be offline for the next week and unable to post every day-ish. So what I've done is post a bunch of future-dated entries, which I'll unlock after posting this. They'll be visible on my journal page but not on reading lists (due to said future-dating), hence this announcement to let people know they're there.

I once again attended Gen Con with the BF and played lots of new games!

Once again, lots of new-to-me games played that I really enjoyed.

So I've been looking for something for the BF and me to watch together for ages. I think the last thing we managed to watch all the way through was Hikaru no Go three or four years ago. (I say he is far too picky, but it's more just that we have very disparate tastes. For example, he's also watching Game of Thrones at the moment, which is a big ol' pile of nope for me.)

But Steven Universe seems to have come to my rescue! It was pretty cute too. I started watching the few episodes on demand has for free, and while I know he often half pays attention to stuff I watch, it's hard to tell how much attention he's actually paying. But then later that evening, he sat next to me on the sofa and asked, "So, did the on demand have a lot of season one episodes that I missed?"

And now we're slowly making our way through the entire series. (So many spoiled reveals due to the most recent 10 episodes being the ones we saw first, haha, but that is how I roll.)

I was not expecting him to like Steven Universe! The show does manage a great blend of earnest sweetness, fun, humor, and science fiction though. Ahh, I can't decide if I want to go search out meta or leave things be so we can both watch the rest of the series without any more prior knowledge. ...Okay, I'm going with the second option, not really a debate, but I sort of wish I had someone else in my life with whom I could talk about things. I don't even know what I want to say about this show, only that I think it's super enjoyable and smarter than I thought it would be going into it.

Life has been...stressful lately. Mostly because my union's been pushed to the point where we get to have a strike authorization vote. And, while no group represented by my union has had to actually strike in almost twenty years, I would not be surprised if we break that streak given how things have been going at my work for the past two years. It is all so much ughhhh and arghhh.

(I also can't read anything about the NHLPA's contract negotiations without giving myself low-level anxiety for the rest of the day.)

The work issues have been really draining, so I've been feeling even more introverted than usual for the past couple months. But the past two weekends I hung out with a friend I hadn't seen in a while and had a good time. So go me for forcing myself to make plans and stop ignoring my friends.

Yesterday was a really nice day though. The BF gave me my Christmas present early: breakfast (pancakes because I'd been wishing for some earlier in the week), a women's style Austin Jackson jersey (that I look very cute in, if I may say so), and tickets to the Tigers game that day. It was ♥super romantic♥. The weather was just about perfect for a ball game - a little cool when the sun was hidden and occasional rain sprinkles, but not uncomfortable - and the only thing that could have made it better would have been a win. (I will be sad if Cabrera is denied winning MVP finally because the Tigers failed to make the playoffs.) It makes me smile remembering it.

I was sort of productive technologically today. I redid my journal style so that it is now spiffy and pretty, I got the FM radio working on my stereo, I finally updated the music on my iPod, and I may have bricked my wireless router trying to update it (it was only working intermittently prior to the possible bricking). I'll retackle the router tomorrow because I only have so much energy to devote to troubleshooting it.
