Last week I finished reading Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline. For the most part I really liked it! However there are a LOT of 80's pop culture references, and some of it I just couldn't really keep up with. I do like some 80's movies and music, but I'm not obsessed with it and I wasn't born until '91. I have a few older friends that grew up in the 80's and LOVE this book, and I can understand why.
Andrew and I are currently re-watching Arrested Development! Another one of my favorite, no longer running shows.
I don't really listen to a lot of Christmas music, but recently I've been listening to Cee Lo Green's Christmas album, Cee Lo's Magic Moment. It's just as ridiculous as you'd imagine.
Technically I've only played it once this month, but the game I'm really into right now is a tabletop game called Betrayal at House on the Hill. I didn't know much about it until my younger brother told me he wanted it for Christmas, but "I don't actually expect anyone to get it for me, it's expensive and hard to find." I guess he hasn't figured out that nothing's that hard to find with Amazon and Ebay around. However it was a little expensive, so my older brother, Andrew and I pooled in to get it for him. We all played it on Christmas and it was SO MUCH FUN. You start off as a group of friends exploring a seemingly abandoned mansion. Halfway through the game changes when the "haunt" begins, and you find out that one of you is actually a traitor that lured the rest of the friends there for one evil purpose or another. It comes with 50 different scenarios, so we're going to be playing this one for awhile!
All of my wonderful Christmas gifts from Andrew and my family! They're the best :) As I sit here writing this I'm wearing the super cozy robe Andrew got me (I'd been hinting for a new one) and a Snorlax t-shirt from my mom!
I don't have any personal projects that I'm working on, so I'll share something work related. This month the theatre I work at was doing Into the Woods, which I was assistant stage managing. They chose to do it at the same time as the movie coming out, to see if it brings in some new theatre-goers. Our closing performance was last night!
