Whoops. Yes, it’s two weeks late. Let’s see what I can remember…
Let’s start with the bad news. I didn’t finish any books in November. First month this year, I think. Last year was much, much worse, so documenting this actually helped motivate me to read books within a month and not leave them forever like I’m doing now. Sorry, books.
I tried to write parts of my own book proposal, but mainly transcribed old interviews. Also useful, just time consuming. And I didn’t reach 50k words. That may or may not have something to do with the amount of Netflix movies I watched (see below), but could also be related to the fact that I went on two international work trips in November.
Saw Gravity in the cinema in Holland. It was good, but left me a little bit seasick afterwards, because everything was constantly in motion. I guess that’s what space travel is like, too.
Saw Comic Potential, directed by Stephen Willis, who arranges the Doctor Who Fan Orchestra videos (speaking of which – coming soon!). Then during SpotOn I attended both Science Showoff and Story Collider. And speaking of Story Collider, they need your support over at Patreon.
Here’s one of the stories of the November show in London.
I discovered last month (well, October, so two months ago by now) that you can find the actual history of things you watched on Netflix, with the date. And so I learned that in November, I watched another two episodes of Battlestar Galactica before I got completely bored with it. Realizing it bored me, I then also watched the Portlandia episode about people who got addicted to Battlestar Galactica.
Then I watched lots of films the rest of the month – both good and bad. Look, I had a stressful few weeks, and sometimes I can’t handle the difficult fare. Sometimes it’s Into The Wild, other times it’s Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead. Also: Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (I already forgot what this was about), The Beach, Pretty In Pink, and The Ramen Girl. I really liked that last one. Lots of memories of Japan trip. I also watched The Gods Must Be Crazy, because I had been thinking about it and then found it was on Netflix.
I discovered Just The Tips, which is a hilarious series in which two women recreate craft projects seen on the Internet. This episode is more recent, but you should just watch it all – it’s a quick watch.
