August 10, 2016
I just went through a list of TV programs that were renewed or ended and of the three that I am interested in one was cancelled and two were renewed. Not a bad average but I really liked Houdini and Doyle; yes, the program wasn’t accurate but it was still a good, and oddball, detective series. Of all the comics I have ever read, my favorite is The Flash with Green Arrow and Batman close behind. I have liked some of the Batman movies and not liked some. The TV series Arrow does not follow the comics but it is still a good series, although darker than I normally like. The Flash TV series is good and so far it has little of the various ways that DC Comics had The Flash use his speed. DC did more with that “one-trick-pony” than could be thought possible and that is one reason I like it. Green Arrow and Batman I like because the hero always has the exact arrow or item at his fingertips and I wonder how they manage to fill their quiver / belt with so much stuff.\ and still be able to grab what they need at first try.
I am still having sleeping problems but I seem to have settled into a routine. I didn’t realize it until today but I now sleep from about 10 PM to 1 or 2 AM and then stay awake until roughly 6 AM or so, and then sleep until almost noon. This wrecks havoc with my daily routine as I either forego the morning sleep or try to get everything done in a couple of hours in the afternoon. I started writing during the nighttime wake period and even though still sleepy, I got a lot done.
I got another YouTube video done and will be posting it shortly. This one will be titled “What is your politics” and I talk about various 2D political quizzes and how those are better tests of what your politics really are than the old-fashioned straight line definition. I plan on getting a few done on local politics next. I have to start doing these on a more regular basis. Have a look at them, unfortunately for those in Norway and other countries, the videos are more relevant to Americans, just a word of warning.
So far I have kept, pretty well, my ban on colas and other sodas with the caramel coloring. Except for the couple of root beers I had last week. I am going through about a gallon of water a day. In the desert water is more of a necessity and even in my apartment the heat and lack of humidity can drain someone to dehydration. I probably drink too much but I drink water in place of snacking.
I am still thinking about HIGH TREASON while I am working on GENERATIONS UPON GENERATIONS. I have about 25,000 words written out of the about 48,000 I want to finish with. I need to get more writing done, I have just too many distractions and no one to help with the routine of daily life which makes it another distraction.
