Hi there, Dear Reader. It’s mid-afternoon in New Hometown, Florida on Saturday, December 12, 2020. Currently, the temperature is 76˚F (24˚C) under partly sunny skies. With the wind blowing from the east at 5 MPH (8 KM/H) and humidity at 75%, the feels-like temperature is 76˚F (24˚C). The forecast for the rest of the day calls for a high of 74˚(23˚C) – which we surpassed – and scattered showers. Tonight we are supposed to get light rain and a low of 61˚F (16˚C).
Today I decided to go ahead and get the 4K UHD Jurassic Park four-film 25th Anniversary set that Universal Home Entertainment released two years ago. I wasn’t going to buy any more 4K UHD Blu-rays this year, but since I am left to fend for myself for pretty much the entire day, I had one of those “what the hell” moments and ordered it on Amazon.
The set includes:
- Jurassic Park (1993)
- Jurassic Park: The Lost World (1997)
- Jurassic Park III (2001)
- Jurassic World (2015)
According to Amazon, my 4-film set should arrive by Tuesday, although it’s been my experience that delivery estimates are usually based on “worst case scenarios” and I usually get my stuff a day or two before the “due by” date.
So, now, Dear Reader, my 4K UHD collection now has 23 titles, although a few are “repeats” because when I ordered the Steelbook editions of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, they included a 4K UHD disc as part of the bundle.
Other than that…there is not much to tell. My life has become a mind-numbing routine full of sameness, boredom, and solitude. I don’t really have anyone to talk to here, and with the COVID-19 pandemic still raging out there, I am not in a position where I can meet new friends or even – gasp! – try to date again! Not that I’m wanting to meet a new woman and start a relationship – my self-confidence in that area is rather diminished – but even though I don’t mind some solitude, I’m a gregarious person who needs to be around people at least for a couple of hours a day.
So today will be more of the same routine: watch a movie, read a book, play a computer game, and/or listen to music. I’ll eat dinner at some point tonight, watch another movie, and go to bed late.
It’s getting a bit dark outside, so I think we’re about to get one of those “scattered showers” mentioned in the weather forecast. And on that note, I will close this post. Ciao for now, folks, and I’ll catch you on the sunny side of things.
