You might have noticed there hasn’t been much in the way of updates recently. The reason is purely down to the fact I’ve had nothing to say both online and in the real world.
yesterday I had my first conversation with a human being in I think I’m around nine days. Obviously that exclude any pleasantries such as talking to the stupidly attractive women who now seem to occupy the tills at Lidl and Aldi.
Of course there is the obligation of having to speak during the fortnightly sign on in the job centre but Adalat my interaction levels with people both spiritual and physical has pretty much been non-existent.
In other news I still manage to keep up with my training for this weekend’s obstacle course race. Back2thetrenches.co.ukis a little something I entered just so I have something to look forward to and to train towards.
It’s just a shame that some of the grammar on their website and Facebook page makes it look like it’s been written by a 12-year-old and these people are supposed to specialise in corporate events and the such.
After seven weeks of training I can just about run a full 25 minutes and cover a little over 3 miles on a good day. at Sumat going to the gym, swimming and other fitness type stuff I’d say that I’m in pretty good shape.
I wouldn’t say it’s hard any impact on my confidence or made me feel better but at least I don’t feel worse and that’s the thing I’ve been trying to stop.
I’m giving up on dating sites seeing them now as nothing more than a carousel of shallowness. perhaps they are the words of a better I’m somewhat cynical person (such as myself) but that’s just how it seems to be.
Right now my hit rate is about one in 300 and that’s a very conservative estimate. out of those people who speak to me for more than a week is a triumphant zero. If it’s not the looks and then it’s the personality and vice versa.
And all this spare time on my hands I have managed to watch all five seasons of the rather excellent “Parks and recreation”. If you have a Netflix account this is something truly worth watching along with the mighty BoJack Horseman.
Orange is the new black is also a surprise hit with me given the fact it’s on Netflix exclusive I had foolishly written it off as perhaps another one of these online TV ventures that’s underfunded with Paul production values. Happy to sail this one I was completely wrong.
The only problem I can see with Netflix and making new episodes to view immediately is the longevity of this system.
I’m wondering if they rely on the system that most people will perhaps binge watch in two or three episodes Blocks, like I do with Breaking Bad.
Thankfully I’ve been managed to get those hacks working so I can watch the USA version, or indeed any other countries version, of Netflix as let’s face it content in the UK is somewhat uninspiring at best.
Without I really have nothing left to say for now. I’ve just spent five minutes whilst I was walking China to think and what else I can add to this and nothing.
