We are 5 episodes in already. Luna finds it somewhat scary, but almost anything and everything is scary for her. And still, she won’t stop watching and asking for one more episode.
Is not every day you get homemade pancakes, sausages, and bacon at work.
Luna loves her olives 🫒, except for the pimento, so one needs to suck that thing out before she eats the olives. 😅
Well, it’s been a week, for sure, well ever since last Saturday.
- 🥳 Last Saturday was Luna’s 5yo birthday party
- 🛫 On Monday we woke up early, worked from home then headed out to the airport.
- 🌱 Tuesday, is field day.
- ✈️ After all day on the field, I get dropped off at the airport.
- 🛬 I arrived at midnight, slept about 3 hours.
- 🎂 Wednesday, was Luna’s birthday celebration at her pre-school. We had juice 🧃 and donuts 🍩.
- 📷 next up, downtown lunch with Luna, Marley, and Mom, street photography with Luna’s new camera (and mine until it died)
- 🤒 Late evening, Luna gets sick (sad trombone)
- 👨🏻⚕️💻 Thus, on Thursday and Friday I was busy working from home and being a nurse.
📺 TV shows watched
📺 Onimusha (2023) - ★★★★☆
Finished it this week, pretty cool but didn’t love it.

Only two episodes in and I am loving this show. There’s good stuff in here.
📺 Monarch: Legacy of Monsters (2023) - ★★★★★
I am a sucker for anything Godzilla-related so obviously I was going to watch this. Watched the first two episodes and I am excited to see where this is going.
🎮 Video games currently playing
🎮 Gunbrella (2023) - ★★★★★
Finished it and had lots of fun playing it.
I think I am about 60% completed on this one.
🎵 Music piques
Is it okay not to care about main tech things and live your life? Or should I be concerned about everything that’s going on? Ugh!
It is a little sad that so many game developers that I have interest in following their work or news, aren’t on other platforms but X.
Last night I finished a game that like many indie games I buy, I usually play for a little bit until I get distracted with something else. I know, this sucks and I need to be better a this.
Publisher: Devolver Digital
Released: Sep 13, 2023
Uncover the dark secrets of a gritty, tangled metropolis and battle diabolic villains with your trusty Gunbrella, a bulletproof brolly that doubles as a firearm.
This game I would describe it as a 2D shot ’em up platformer with some Metroidvania, and rogue-lite elements. And there’s lots of blood. At the end of the day, it is a very entertaining indie action game.
The premise of the story itself is both straightforward and a little cruel. His [the protagonist] home has been set ablaze, his wife was murdered, and the killer kidnapped his newborn child. What was uncovered after that, is pretty wild, the story is pretty appealing with a lot of what-fucks?
I love the pixel art, of course, this is probably the main reason I buy these games. The art, the noir-like aesthetic of it, makes this game worth checking out.
The gameplay in general is pretty linear, not a lot of exploration or Metroidvanianess in the sense that you may need a thing to access another area and such. Well, there is but it’s usually a password from someone or a key. The game isn’t that long either. It took me, what? Three days to finish it.
About six hours?
The game has three different difficulties you can play as, obviously I played on easy. Boss fights weren’t too challenging at first, they get a little more challenging as you progress. More in the sense that you may die on your first try and then by the second you’ve figured out the patterns making things easier.
I’m so glad I picked it up and stuck with it, it was really fun to play in between playing bigger titles like Assassin’s Creed Mirage which I’m currently playing too.

Excellent episode! You should all listen! And not because I may or may not have been mentioned in this latest episode.
Seriously though, like and subscribe!
First work trip that I have gone to the airport, straight from the field. 😅🤪
Today’s going to be a long day… 🌱 🛫🛬🥔
Somewhere down to Yuma.
It’s so hard sometimes, though!
