Facing the book

Today is a day of escapism. ...Okay, so not entirely, but it's what we wanted to do. We did our grocery shopping on Thursday, so we thought, since we don't have to go shopping, it would be a great day to just watch some anime and play some video games. But there's still the little matter of household chores. They tend to not get done during the week, because hello, we just spent the whole day working. And then they tend to not get done on the weekend because hello, we just spent the whole week working. Also, we have to go grocery shopping, and we're like, "That counts as chores, right?" Of course it does, but it's not like it takes all day.

Anyway, the point is, we thought maybe we shouldn't neglect all our chores all the time, so we did a little bit of chores, and now we're ready to just play video games. But I figured I ought to update first. We started a thing today where we're trying to speak up more on Facebook. It seems like kind of a silly goal, because my current opinion of Facebook is that it's a thin veneer of real relationships designed to help people pretend they're actually connected to others when all they really want to do is watch Netflix and play video games all the time. "Well, isn't that what you want to do?" Okay, you got me there. But the other thing we want to do is talk to people about the stuff that we like, and since we're too scared to link our LJ posts, we're starting small. If you're friends with us on Facebook, you can see what we did!

I guess I could explain my opinion about Facebook a little more. Basically, the idea is you go to Facebook to see what's going on with your friends and family, right? At least, that's what I want to do on Facebook. And maybe watch some funny videos. But if all it is is people sharing videos and memes and articles, it gets to be more than a little impersonal. And so for us it turns out to be boring. But when we're really starved for human interaction, we'll end up scrolling through our feed a lot longer, in the hopes that there will be something truly interesting. Then we find nothing and fall back on the Noragami festival video again. Or Every Second Counts, if we're thinking about it.

And so! we're taking the advice to be the change you want to see in the world! ...But we're still afraid to be too personal, so it might come across as mostly advertising our business. Heh, heh, heh. We're working on it.

Today I'm thankful for getting to watch The Seven Deadly Sins last night (I'm actually not that surprised that the stories didn't really focus that much on Meliodas, which is kind of a bummer, but the other characters are all great, too, so it was still fun), having time to play video games today, getting a little bit of chores done, Page showing interest in her No Bowl feeders again, and Studio C's most annoying people on your Facebook feed video.
