Week 29: Pizza Party

A week of blogging, trying to get rid of a mattress, binging all of The Circle, and a slightly over-the-top pizza party.

  • I finished and published my blog post on the treasure hunt that Glynn and I ran. I’m pleased with how it came out and I’ve had some nice feedback. I definitely find it easier to get into the flow of writing after getting into the habit of writing weeknotes.

  • A few of the people from the Minecraft server I’m part of did a “speed” run one evening. It went spectacularly badly – we used an unstable beta version of the game, it was infuriatingly laggy, and the dragon fight at the end just bugged out and we couldn’t complete it. It’s really fun when we do these but we’re by no means fast or efficient. The new cave generation is really cool though.

  • I really need to get rid of a mattress, and the Lambeth waste services website is just broken. I’ve tried it in lots of different browsers, I’ve tried tweaking the page via the debugger to get it to work, it’s quite annoying. After waiting 10 days for an email response they apologised and suggested I just call them instead 🤦

  • I don’t want to talk about house stuff. It’s moving very slowly is all.

  • We watched the whole latest season of The Circle (UK), I kind of wish I felt shame at how much I enjoyed it, but I just don’t. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt so invested in reality TV. If you want some gripping trash then I highly recommend it, it kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. What a welcome distraction from life and the fact that all my other TV watching is cooking at the moment.

  • We went for pizza in some friends’ garden, they have a small pizza oven and it’s amazing! I had such a lovely time, however, I didn’t eat enough pizza and got blackout drunk, so the latter half of the evening is patchy at best. I spent all of the next day in a pit of hungover anxiety. I’m really far too old for this shit and I need to re-learn my limits after a relatively dry lockdown.
