Back home. May just goof off today.

I’m back to catch up with house stuff here. I was trying to help family the best I could, often feeling helpless in doing so. But that’s just part of life. We all have those times. I just got back to be alone with the cats for the next ten or so days.

Although I’m going to take care fo a lot of previously planned winter house-related chores and fix-ups, I think I will do little to nothing today.

Not working today…

I thought I would be drawing another strip today. I fell asleep at 6pm yesterday, and was awakened at 3am by my begging cat running across my head, knocking shit over, startling herself, running back across my head, cutting my ear and head, and getting blood all over my pillow.

I got out of bed at 5am, shoveled 2” of new snow before feeding the cats. Then I had to run some errands most of this morning.

Were supposed to get up to 9 more inches of snow tonight. Not to mention a temperature drop to -17 degrees.

I don’t know if I’m having my mold-allergy symptoms, or cold/flu symptoms. So I’m taking it easy today. I’m five days ahead on the strip anyway.

Xbox Losing The Console War Looks Like The Best Thing That’s Happened To Gaming In Years

Fanboys and pundits breathlessly promote the foolish and counterproductive idea of a console war every time a new console generation arrives on the scene. Competition in the console space is generally a good thing for everyone. It drives competitors to innovate in ways that benefit players and increase sales. Selling consoles is not a zero-sum game. More than one platform can succeed and the more that do, the more opportunities players have to play the games they love. The Switch didn’t go to war, it entered the competition and players reaped the benefits.
