Morning was a little -- meh. I woke up kinda extra-groggy, and starting up on Chapter 11 of "Remembering You" took longer than normal. Didn't help that I was trying to describe a location from AMA that I hadn't actually seen in a while to open it. (Thank God for screencap LPs!) Once I finally got up to speed, it went all right, and I think I'll be fine now that I'm in the actual fight sequence. Just -- bleh. Don't like those slow mornings.

Most of the day was pretty low-key, honestly. We all had lunch together with a new show -- I forgot to mention yesterday that we've started watching the Netflix series version of A Series of Unfortunate Events. It's good so far -- a lot more like the book than the big-screen movie. Though Neil Patrick Harris VERY CLEARLY took a lot of tips from Jim Carrey's portrayal of Count Olaf (though I personally don't think this is a bad thing, as I thought Jim's Olaf was very amusing). There was a weird swerve from the books at the end of the first episode involving the Baudelaire parents, but I'm still interested in seeing where they take it.

After that was driving -- since we didn't have any specific destination in mind today, Mom had me drive up to the beach parking lot to practice some more backing up and increasing the speed of my gear changes. Bumped the back of the car against the grass a few times, but nothing major. We also stopped for gas, which gave me practice pulling up to the pump at least. Nothing too crazy.

After that was Sims 4 -- Emmett had the day off, so I sent him to the library so I could slot in some lot traits and he could get his social up. I also had him invite Nikal over for a bit of flirting, which -- went okay, but they're still kinda stuck at only being able to get a little romantic interaction up before one of them rejects the other. Honestly, it's probably about time I start looking for other prospects for both of them. It just would have been so cute. . .

And then, catching up with Helloween's ObsCure LP (game remains hilariously B-movie, even throwing in random "evil occultism" even though the plot is CLEARLY "evil mad science" by this point) and a look at an assassination in Hitman (Hells pulled it off quite admirably, and got a hilarious achievement for drowning someone in a toilet -- "My Name Is Hurl" or something like that. :P). He actually encouraged the viewers to vote on new ways to bring down future targets -- I'm all for showcasing that explosive rubber duck he unlocked. XD

And -- that's about it, really. I'm in tumblr catching up mode (though I did manage to get my queue done, hurrah), working on a new info post for The Valice Multiverse, and probably gonna watch a couple more videos because it's a three-day weekend and I can still stay up late tonight. :p So yeah. Night all!
