  1. Finally watched Tomb Raider this week. How on earth do you make a movie based on a video game that drags?Report

    I had read that a couple days ago, loved it(!) but even though I wanted to write about it, I could not figure an angle. So, kudos to Jaybird!

    I am near the end of a major work project where I am making a series of large changes to my product, so not much time for reading anything serious. But, I picked up a nice copy of Dagon on my last business trip, so combining that with some James Ellroy for comfort food.

    Oh, the Beavers are going to the college world series, which is nice.Report

    Should have taken that content warning seriously. It’s been a while since I’ve read a horror story that’s inspired that physical “skin crawling” sensation.

    (I’m a big horror fan and it’s great to find something genuinely frightening to read.)Report

    I’m anxious to get a move on and relocate to Portland.

    Single-family home escrows in my area are traditionally set at 45 days.

    Beer typically takes six weeks, or 42 days, to complete from brew to bottling.

    At long last, I have what looks like not one but three live prospects for house purchase offers in play. One’s a counter-offer to a lowball offer that got put in front of me last week, another is a young couple looking to buy my home who would pay my asking price (!) and are right on the edge of qualifying for the financing, and one is a broker looking to buy for himself who wants to do a non-traditional structure that he says effectively meets my asking price (!) and I’m waiting for my own broker to give me advice about that.

    Also at long last, I am healthy enough and at home enough to brew the raspberry hefeweizen ingredients I bought several weeks ago. Much has happened in my life between then and now.

    The best way I can think of to induce one of those potential buyers to open escrow is to jinx myself by brewing that beer and committing to a 42-day fermentation. So that’s what I’m doing today: brewing raspberry hefeweizen.Report
