I've made it to the last 5 episodes of Breaking Bad, but the last couple of seasons are one helluva trudge for me. I've come around to agreeing with the Skyler character's opinion from earlier in the show and been wishing the cancer would come back and off Walt, the quicker the better for everyone he's apparently determined to drag down with him.

I mean, the quality of the writing and acting and the critical praise for it is deserved, in my opinion. But the emotional and ethical heart of the show just keeps getting deeper, darker and more repulsive.

I'm tempted to skip to the last episode to see how/how many of everyone gets deaded and call it good enough.

Yeah, it's mighty good but it's mighty dark too.

I hope 2018 is even better for you than 2017 was.

I'll take tornados (tornadoes?  tornadi?) over wildfire any day of the week. 

Glad y'all are safe.

Yes, the socialist is investing his money in stocks and bonds. Oh well.

If the world is going to be run for the benefit of owners, do what you can to become an owner, at least on a small scale.

Stardew Valley, this game is better than real life.

What if my life is all wrong, and I actually want to live in a rural small town. I guess it doesn't matter because the kind of rural small town I fantasize about does not exist anywhere anymore (it is like, the rural small town of nostalgic Studio Ghibli movies).

You laugh, but the experience of starting this flower farm with the Mrs. has really made me regret I didn't consider farming or something similar as a younger person.  Never even a flicker on the radar when I was younger, but now I desparately wish I had the financial wherewithal to retire and farm flowers full-time.

Finished it a few days ago -- thought the whole season was very well done.  Ended on an oddly optimistic note.

So the world will be forever deprived of the awesome cuteness of me as a baby.

Perhaps you should try to recreate the films whilst dressed in an oversized novelty diaper.  For posterity.

Just watched the Todd episode and found it oddly touching.  Been very pleased with the first three!

I have these and these.  Pretty pricey for little plastic half-balls, but thankfully they were a gift.  They hurt like hell/work great.
