Wait, ANOTHER birthday? I just had one a couple of… Well, okay. I guess that was about a year ago. That makes sense I guess. Still, it feels like these things are getting closer together.
I’m trying to stay in shape. Someone suggested I should get into cycling. So I’ve been watching Global Cycling Network and Seth’s Bike Hacks. I even watched the exhausting run as Kilian Bron fought for 1st place in a field of 1,400 riders in MEGAVALANCHE 2019. I also watched a couple of guys try to tackle the 1903 Tour de France on period-appropriate bikes, although that one almost did me in.
I haven’t lost any weight yet. Am I watching the wrong videos?
My wife asked what I wanted for my birthday. I told her I wanted Cyberpunk 2077 to come out now. Instead she got me a cool LED clock. The clock is nice, although I wonder why she bothers asking me for gift suggestions when she never gets me what I ask for. She did the same thing last Christmas when I asked for EA to stop grinding studios down with mismanagement, and instead she got me some nice things for my home office.
It’s my day off, so I’m going to keep this entry short. I’m making a point of relaxing today, so I’m taking a break from the cycling videos. I think I’ll play some modded Minecraft. I got a version with raytracing working, and that’s pretty cool.
Thanks for reading.
