So I finally caught up in Disney+

4 Jul

Last year some time a lovely pal gave me access to their Disney+ account and I started watching the Marvel shows. But as happens… life happened and I only got through 1 and a little more before I returned to my binges of The Simpsons and Family Guy, etc. Bless that friend for the opportunity but I needed a real kick in the pants to actually sit down and watch things. Which happened recently as I got my own account and eventually shared with my family.

So I wanted to take a few minutes to jot down my thoughts and reactions to some of the shows. Basically everything is at least 6 months (minus Obi-Wan Kenobi) old, so expect there to be spoilers within. Also, this is going to be fairly random- stream of consciousness reactions here.

Let’s just assume there be spoilers here for anyone who hasn’t watched the series… Continue reading

The curse of being trapped at home…

3 Mar

The problem with all these home shows and DIY programs is that it convinces you that you too can remodel a home. Convinces. I mean, if these every day folks can do it, so can I, right?

It happens right away, too. From the first episode you watch you start to think that you can update a space easy peasy. Continue reading
