Hi, there! Thank you for stopping by! As I write this, it’s mid-afternoon here in my corner of Florida on a hot, muggy, and stormy Thursday. Right now – this won’t go live till after 5 PM my time – the temperature outside is 96˚ F; with 51% humidity, almost calm winds of 4 MPH, and under thunderstorm conditions, the heat index Is 106˚ F in the shade. We have dark clouds overhead, so even though my study has a window, it’s dimly lit. There haven’t been too many lightning strikes so far, but that’s bound to change as the big, mean, and dangerous storm cells get closer to my neighborhood.
As you can see, I didn’t write a review today, either. I woke up thinking that I’d have something in mind at least by noon – I usually have an item (be it a movie, book, TV show season set, or Star Wars action figure) chosen in the morning, but sometimes I don’t have an aha! moment until 12 PM or even later.
Well, noon came and went, and I had nothing.
One o’clock came and went…same thing. Zilch ideas for reviews.
Now it’s just past four, and still no review ideas.
And with bad weather overhead, I’m not going to sit here spinning my wheels uselessly while I wait for inspiration to fire up my brain before my PC gets fried by a lightning strike.
Ah, well. Maybe tomorrow.
On the Good News Front
Not everything is Sturm und Drang here, though.
I got a text message from Best Buy earlier this afternoon. It was to let me know that the package with my 4K UHD Blu-ray sets of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Solo: A Star Wars Story are on their way – via USPS – and will arrive on Saturday. The original estimated date of delivery was Monday the 29th, but apparently the Force is with me.
I still wish Best Buy had the steelbook editions – I have the nine main Skywalker Saga films in that type of packaging, but not the two Anthology movies – but at least I’ll have all of the existing Star Wars films on 4K UHD. (I still won’t be able to watch the new format BDs until the TV and Blu-ray player I bought nearly three years ago are connected – and functioning properly, but…baby steps, guys. Baby steps.)
And…even better news, at least for today: the thunderstorm has cleared the area and now it’s both cooler outside (85˚F, but it’s still humid out there, so the feels-like in the shade is 91˚F, 94˚F if you’re out in the open) and cloudier. But no lightning!
Well, that’s about it for today, Dear Reader. So until next time, stay safe, be healthy, and I’ll catch you on the sunny side of things.
