Friday Five! (on a Sunday...)

To get myself to post again... I was doing better before, and then work started getting busy.

1. What was your favorite past time in high school?
Reading. (Surprise!) Although I did get more social in high school and actually did spend time talking on the phone, going to people's houses and etc.

2. What is your all time favorite board game/card game?
I don't really have a favorite right now. I play Splendor a fair amount with my sister and BiL, and I played a lot of Ticket to Ride on iPhone, but I'm not super attached to any of them. Probably my all-time favorite would be 拱猪/Gong Zhu because I played a ton of Hearts on the computer in high school and Gong Zhu is even harder. Also, all the scrabbling to avoid getting the pig or to try and get the lamb/sheep is very fun. My other old-time favorite would probably be Big Two, which I played a LOT of on various family vacations. (Clubs, diamonds, hearts, spades is always the correct order!!)

3. What is the last movie you saw at the theatre and what did you think of it?
I finally watched the copy of The Heat that I bought, and I enjoyed it a lot, especially Melissa McCarthy. I will say that the past few years of BLM makes the heroes' not-following-regulations police violence much less funny, but I mostly tried to watch it and think of it in terms of action movie rules.

4. What is something (no matter what kind of mood you're in) that makes you happy the moment you do it, see it, or hear it?
My cats!

5.Do you believe that crop circles are made by human or alien?
I do think aliens are out there, just in terms of mathematical probability, but by the same measure, I really doubt any aliens out there took a special interest in Earth.

In other news, I have given up on the Jaywalker sock I was intermittently knitting, as picking it up every few months has meant that I have had to reknit 40+ rows several times and after finding the latest mistake, I do not have it in me to frog and reknit that much. I need to just start a brand new project and commit to knitting it every week.

Oh yeah, talking on the phone, I used to do that! Wow. I even remember my two closest friends' phone numbers from back then.

Been meaning to check ourselves -- TBD wouldn't mind seeing "the girl who hunts foxes" again.

1. Reading. Generally specific and (mostly) Marvel comics.
2. Checkers.
3. Logan. I liked it, though it's not a future I want the X-Men to have. I liked it as an AU.
4. The Adorable Tots.
5. Humans. We are a lot cooler than any of us can imagine.

I would watch the hell out of that show.

I ordered two volumes of the X-23 comic to see if they would scratch that itch, but I bet they won't.
