Not gonna talk about the health stuff in this one other than to say that I'm doing all right.
This morning I was cruising the New York Times
(honest) and found a link to an article on the current ComicCon. I read that article and followed an additional link regarding next year's "Wonder Woman" movie. Watched the trailer and am DEFINITELY going to see that film. Not willing to wait for the DVD. Other than a quick scan of data on IMDb, I'm unfamiliar with Gal Godot, the actress playing Diana Prince, but--based on this trailer--I think she's going to become a favorite of mine. Wonder Woman always was. (What can I say? Wonder Woman and Emma Peel were my heroines growing up.)
Of course, since this link had taken me to io9.gizmodo.com, I fell down the additional-interesting-links rabbit hole and read fun &/or interesting pieces regarding ComicCon and the panels, trailers, etc. being enjoyed by the show-offs who get to go to fun events like that.
I WANT to see the "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" movie pretty much "NOW". The trailer (not yet available to view online) reveals who Star Lord's father is and who plays him. If you want to know, go read the article which gives a run-through of the trailer. It's (...all in the reflexes...)
Other interesting articles kept me at io9.gizmodo.com for a while.
And now I'm looking for a favor. I'm hoping whatever local might provide the favor for me will have a good time doing so.
I scavenged a stack of apparently "vintage-ish" Gaming Discs that I have no equipment or skill to test for functionality. If any of my local friends would be able and willing to run reasonably quick tests of these discs (on ANY or ALL of these discs) so I can list them up on eBay, I would be grateful. The games run from what appears to be a strictly PC played "Aliens vs Predator 2" to Mortal Kombat for PlayStation(no number) to "Gran Turismo 2" to PS "Legend of Mana" (possibly the original) to a partial set of "Final Fantasy" to quite a few more. I need to sell stuff since that's about all the income I can do right now. Therefore, anyone who could help me out please let me know as soon as you can. Such assistance will be deeply appreciated. Maybe a few baked goods &/or freezer jam could exchange hands in "Thanks"...
Also, I picked up 4 packets of what I thought were dog treats at the food shelf only to figure out that they are CAT food which is too rich for my boys. Whichever local wants them and says so first can come and get them or maybe we could deliver or meet somewhere. Message me, if you need my cell phone number. They are Castor and Pollux brand which is--I think--supposed to be high quality food. Somebody please take them so they don't go to waste. Here's a photo of one pack:
Now I have errands to take care of so I can then take the rest of the day off.
