Nothing super exciting to cover here, though I do want to take a moment to vent my annoyance over the recent streams from Daniel San GMR.  After taking a pretty long hiatus from his channel, the creator came back a couple months ago and has been semi-regularly streaming again, but because he doesn’t want to clutter his uploads up with streams, he only leaves the videos up for a few days, then delists them.  He’s said he’s planned on reuploading them to a secondary place in the future, but, well, it’s been like two or three months now and he’s yet to put any of the old ones up anywhere, so it’s pretty much a ‘watch them while they’re up, or they disappear’ situation, and I frankly can’t always get to them before he delists them.  It’s annoying.  Not the end of the world, or anything, but annoying.  Okay, vent over.

As mentioned briefly last week, I had a weird Tuesday where I took a half day at work in order to run an important errand, so I got what basically amounted to an extra weekend day in terms of my scheduling.  It helped a little with trying to keep up with the streams, but alas.  Okay, vent really over.

Outside of watching stuff, I finished off El Asombroso Mauricio y sus Roedores Sabios again, which ticked all the boxes I wanted it to tick, made me cry again over the fact that there will never be another Discworld book, and had me feeling nice and recharged to go into La Gran Cacería.  Which is also sorta absurdly long, so I’ll be a while on this one, too, but hopefully faster than the first book since I have more time to devote to reading.

That’s about all I got for now, so I’ll leave it there.  Next week I’m due for another blog drafted in Spanish, so see you then.  TTFN.
