Repurposing this to keep track of vital statistics, specifically blood pressure and pulse rate.

8 AM:

Systolic: 180
Diastolic: 125
Pulse: 90
Feeling: Okay, hungry

3 PM:

Systolic: 180
Diastolic: 131
Pulse: 107 (which I’m not sure is right, it was counting 90 before the cuff tightened)

HAHA, JOKE’S ON YOU, I NEVER STOPPED CHECKING IT EVERY DAY BECAUSE I’M LAZY AND DIDN”T TAKE IT OUT OF MY “DAILY” FOLDER.

Really Lengthy Text Posts

Man I am super old. Like, what the hell, I have a beard and I’m pretty sure it’s going to be gray soon. My joints hurt too, mostly when it’s going to rain. Also I have old person complaints, like taxes, and kids who insist on running through my lawn.

When I had the 4th of July off, and I woke up in the morning, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do that day. This is a rarity in my adult life, as I’m sure it is in many of yours. I thought perhaps I should work on my monster manual, or clean my apartment. 
The thought occurred to me that perhaps I might play Final Fantasy 6. 
I argued with myself against the idea. The game is long, and the last few times I started it, I ended up quitting shortly thereafter for lack of time. And there are so many things which need to be done, surely I don’t have time to play a video game. 
But I decided to go for it. From 10 in the morning to the time I went to bed, I relived the finest entry in the Final Fantasy series. And when I got home from work on Friday, I continued. And today, when my morning D&D game ended, I kept going. 
This is the most fun I’ve had in ages.

What's up with LS today? -

I made a rather lengthy Imgur post about what’s going on right now. It’s partially to explain for the Hiatus of Papers & Pencils.

Why “Star Trek Into Darkness” is a horrible piece of cinematic garbage

I did not like the 2009 reboot of Star Trek. I didn’t like it for a lot of reasons which aren’t relevant to what I have to say now. I will mention that rebooting a franchise by having a character go back in time and permanently alter history is not only lazy writing, but it is a profound disservice to those of us who knew and loved the original stories. And I will add that if you don’t know the difference between a solar system and a galaxy you have no business with creative influence over a science fiction franchise.

Given the fact that I didn’t like the original, I did not expect to like its sequel. I wasn’t even planning to see it, save for the fact that my ladyfriend wanted to, and I figured that even if I didn’t like the film, it would be fun to see it with her. (And, for the record, we did have a nice time together. Doesn’t mean the movie was any less shitty, though).

It should go without saying that there are spoilers below.

I also won’t be pretending I know any of the actors names.

Lets start with some things I did like. There’s actually a lot of them:

That was an unfortunately short list. Let me try to itemize the shit I didn’t like.

I feel as though I could go on forever with this. The above was written as one, long, unbroken stream of typing, without pausing to try to remember anything which annoyed me. If I took time to try and think of more, I’m sure I could double the length of this post. But I think I’ve said enough.
