May Wrap-Up: A Little of Everything…

may wrap-up

May has come and gone. It was mostly a good month. I seemed completely unable to keep my mind on anything longer than it takes to read a book (and I started probably a dozen that I put aside for later.)

My nephew visited for the Memorial Day weekend and I got to buy him books! Which was nice because usually he’s all about the toys 🙂

Work- which is usually slow this time of year very much hasn’t been. I don’t know if that’s good or bad yet. Also we’re already hitting triple digits here and I’m trying to find new and exciting ways to exercise without going outside or going to join a gym. But on to the important things…

I am so ready for Fall.

My number two would have to be:

You can just bring me all the AI stories and I’ll eat them up. The AI in this Abel, the most advanced of his kind, was left behind during one war and alone for thirty-years only to be found when the next one starts up. Needless to say he’s not the same as he once was.

(Some vague Alien Covenant spoilers appear below. Because I had to ramble…)

Between Westworld and Stranger Things I’m two for two with new television shows this year. I was never going to bother with HBO again, still smarting over the adaptation choices to Game of Thrones, but then they put out this little number about a Western themed park where guests can pay a ton of money to go live out their fantasies. A real live game of sorts with the very human like “hosts” robots to whom the guests can do what they please both good and bad and don’t have to worry about being hurt in return.
