We started off the week by watching Ready Player One. Boy, was that good! It's almost completely different from the book, yet highly entertaining! I'm reading the book to the kids and they love it. My older son said, "I wish the Oasis was real." I don't doubt that such a thing may come into existence in the future. I just hope reality won't be as bleak as in the book. Spielberg did a good job directing it. Since the movie is so different from the book, it doesn't ruin the book for the kids. They are too old for me to be reading to them, but I like to do it and they like me reading to them, too. It's quality time.
I renewed my driver's license online this week. Wow, they want everyone to get a Real ID by Oct. 1, 2020 or we won't be able to board an airplane or enter a federal building. A simple driver's license won't cut it. What happens if we get a summons for jury duty and can't enter the courthouse without a Real ID? lol I opted to get the Real ID later because it requires you to physically go to a DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) to get it. Those places are depicted as Hell in some movies/shows. There's a reason. No one wants to be there. I was so pissed off there once that by the time it was my turn to take a picture, I couldn't bring myself to smile for the camera. That picture actually came out pretty good. My current picture came out horrible. I look like a shiny faced pig in it. *sigh* I'll get the Real ID eventually.
I printed out 27 pages of story ideas that I had saved on my computer for over ten years. I made the font as small as I could read it so I could save ink. I don't have enough years in my life to complete all of the stories, so I'm going to see if I can incorporate some of them into my comic series. It's much easier than staring at a blank sheet of paper trying to come up with new ideas for my characters.
It's a shame that Art Bell died this week, but it made me re-listen to some of his shows which I enjoyed immensely. He knew how to handle all kinds of callers like a true pro. His reactions to incredible stories were so funny. What a loss. I'm glad my dad told me about him years ago. His shows opened my mind and I'm not a part of the "sheeple" as much as I used to be. We all are pretty much sheeple. I'm more aware now that the media tells us what and how to think, but in this technological age it's hard to get away from that.
Anyway, I don't want to talk about politics because that's depressing. Maybe we should be more like Spongebob, positive and happy! Let's go jellyfishing!
What are you celebrating?
