    Apps, Anniversary, Health, Hypocrites, Movie, TV, Robotics, Spyro

    By Derek | May 1, 2020

    A good Friday. (1st)

    I’m telling you, these App updates. I woke up to 27 iOS app updates. Yes, I checked yesterday, and I did all that were available yesterday, too. 

    Today is our wedding anniversary. Jill and I haven’t decided on what to do, or even know what we can do at this point. House arrest sucks. 

    I’ve been getting up at regular time and exercising first thing for most of this week. Trying to reset my schedule to some sort of normalcy. Did my daily DuoLingo, I’m at 25 days (but I did use a Streak Freeze a few days ago, cause I missed a day).

    Interesting. Gov. Abbot (R) says Texans don’t need face masks any more, and that municipalities cannot ticket people for not wearing them… so, as our mayor (D) and county judge (D) disagree, instead of ticketing people directly, they are having local businesses police this, with threat of criminal trespass to the user, from the business.

    Why is it that when closing the city, mayor and county judge met with our governor, and they all agreed on the terms, but when it came to opening it, they (mayor and judge) simply waited to see what our governor would say, and then, when they don’t agree with it, make up their own rules. 

    So, we’re supposed to follow our local laws, while our mayor & county judge scofflaw our governors law.

    Can you say hypocrites? Maybe Abbot should send some Texas Rangers and give our local leaders a stern talking-to.

    Watched Dude, Where’s My Car.

    Watched another couple of episodes of Agents of Shield.

    Jill did some shopping today, and even was able to get a large 8 pound package of beef for her sister. 

    Ate a good dinner, then helped Jill for a bit with the Robotics stuff. 

    When we were done with that, I played some Spyro: Reignited Trilogy on the Switch.

    Spyro: Reignited Trilogy

    Normally, I’m not very good with platformers, and get frustrated with them, but I’m having a ton of fun with this game. Maybe it’s because it’s made for kids, I dunno. The flying levels are super hard, I’m having trouble completing them, but the regular levels I’m doing 100% on each one, and I’m about 30% of the way through the first game. 

    Stayed up too late, playing Spyro, then went to bed.
