Walking Dead S06E16

Walking Dead proved once again they have no respect for their audience. They don’t know how to pace a show & just drawing it out & pretend it’s a cliffhanger. It’s “Glen’s Dead! Wink wink!” all over again. For one, this episode didn’t need to be 90 minutes long. It could have easily fit in 60 minutes, and still amp up the drama from what we saw. And if this episode was truly about Rick’s downfall, as Kirkman & Gimple are claiming now, and not about who died, they could have done it much better without leaving us with the crappy ending we got. Instead, they’re blatantly screwing with viewers, and not even delivering on their goals very well.

So I decided to rewrite the episode. After the jump!

Handy Me

Maybe I should get my own place to fix up, instead of “fixing” things in my rented apartment.
I finally got around to fixing the door from my living room to bedroom. It kept swinging shut on it’s own, so I would have to prop it open with a shoe. Plus, when swung hard, it would hit the wall/door to my bathroom. After a trip to Lowes I though I had the door stop to fix it, but since the space between the door and the wall was too long, I had to scrap those plans. A trip to Home Depot found me a magnetic door stop that I rigged to work just right

Maybe not exactly how the door stop was supposed to be used, but it has just enough strength this way to keep the door open, and unless it’s really shoved, the door won’t hit the wall.
I also picked up some suet for my birdfeeder. Am I offically old yet?

Las Vegas

Andrea and I visit Las Vegas for a whirlwind Saturday night to Monday night trip. Two day was plenty. We came, we saw, we spent all our money, and we left.

It was really cool to see a show, and visit the wide array of themed casinos. It is the strangest mix of airport/mall/club/Disneyland. All the people done up to the hilt to go clubbing, or get trashed, or throw money down the slot machine holes were a bit scary. And after visiting downtown/Freemont St. it really set in how underneath it all, Vegas is one disturbing surreal place.

I’m definitely glad I went, I had a great time, but I don’t think that’s something I’ll need to do again for a long long while. I think there’s plenty of places to have the same fun without the craziness that comes with Vegas.

$4.23 for Regular??

It was just $4.12 three days ago. And it will probably be $5 by the end of the month.
45 mpg is pretty good, but still, $9.47 to fill up my tank is ridiculous!! Who has that kind of money!?

Getting Ready to Ride

Getting

It was a perfect 70 degree day in Seattle. Heather and I decided to pile onto my bike and take a ferry over to Bainbridge Island for a ride. We drove up and down the island a few times, exploring some of the back-roads, eating downtown, heading out to Poulsbo so she could show off some of the bakeries she used to work at.

While walking around the little town center near the ferry terminal, we went into the little supermarket there, and saw Chris Kattan walking around. Heather was completely unimpressed, being from LA.

The most fun was getting compliments and comments from other motorcyclists on Harley’s. It also makes me the most nervous, being an inexperienced driver, with passenger, around guys and their bike-babes who’ve ridden for years and years.

Our Next President

On the bus ride home today I saw a Bald Eagle perched out in a marsh area off of Lake Washington, near UW. It got me thinking about our nation and the coming elections, and I decided to let everyone know that I’m planning on voting for Hillary Clinton.
We need someone in the White House that can stand up to everything from sniper fire to cheating husbands. Someone who will be sure that 100 adults will lose the choice to play mature video games before even a single child is exposed to such depravity.
We need someone like Hillary who will learn from their opponents on the Republican of the aisle, picking up such tactics as voter suppression, spreading dirty rumors through third party supporters, spurning party rules, astro-turfing and any other dirty tricks that it takes to get them elected.
A president should obviously be someone who will carry on with their present course, regardless of the hard facts in front of them. Hillary has this down pat with her campaign. We need someone who will play to win, even when it’s impossible for them to do so without dirty tricks.
Bring on the dirty tricks! Bring on the divisive politics! Bring on business as usual!
BRING ON HILLARY!

The Perils of Ads

Having the Google ads run on my site has earned me all of $15 over the last couple years. Definitely not worth having John McCain ads run on my site. Funny how just a few years ago, I was actually pulling for John McCain to run as an independent. But now John McCain is just as bad as the rest of them.
To make up for the John McCain ads run on my site, I dedicate this post about John McCain to you, John McCain. May your John McCain campaign go as smoothly as the war you now cheer-lead, John McCain.
So yeah, the ads are deleted.
