Default Post TG 2020

Hi Steps Thread. We went to Chinatown and got a roast duck and bok choi. Which lasted several days. We also got the ingredients for tekka and spent Friday making it. We slow cooked ours for 8 hours.

Really enjoying studying how games work. All those years I spent fixing myself I might have been studying psychology through games. A lot more upbeat. They look at "player agency," motivation, memory chunking, storytelling, and even chaos theory.

Learned that George Miller's famous formula for short term memory: The Magic Number 7 2, has been researched down to 4 1. This isn't a good trend so I will pitch a proposal at the next short term memory conference we stop research. I mean where will it end? 2 .25?

I also remind myself to watch to more comedy. Which I'm going to do to relax before sleep.

Cornish hens, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy , yams, green beans, egg nog and cranberry/apple tartlets. We had a good Thanksgiving.
I'm going to look up George Miller and his magic number. I know my memory is slipping. it's a funky in-between time for me. I'm done editing, and need to transition into writing and promoting. I'm back on Zoom meetings. So far so good - I'm not getting too many weird emails, and, since everyone else is getting them, I'm thinking they may not be Zoom related.
Our COVID numbers are scary. And, with the holidays, I'm sure they're not going to improve. Bad note to end on.
I'm happy that someone removed the rule of not ending a sentence with a preposition. I'm with Winston Churchill - "up with I shall not put."
Happy Holidays.

Default Re: A few Measly Steps a Day

Finishing the month in a better place than I started.
I didn't find an astronomical object with a rotation that would match my "daily" steps. Perhaps some wildly tumbling asteroid in an extreme cometary orbit?

Stress eating gradually went down week after election. Lots of bumps ahead, but determinedly hopeful.

I didn't write for Nanowrimo, but did daydream more actively. Looking forward to next year.

Had first optometrist visit in years, and eyes were in reasonable shape. Optometrist liked to explain and liked to laugh.
I will have my first bifocals -- and eyes are in "come back for an annual checkup" condition.

My sweetheart has less flexible coverage, and only available dental work through her clinic was through a monthly "first come first serve" line up. They were full up at 8:05 AM -- so we've set alarms and expect to be in line before sunrise.

To be continued, on a December near us.

Lyndon

Default It gets better

Re: ending sentences with prepositions. Up here in Seattle one might hear, "Would you like to go with?" and not adding the final me. I just tried to find a reference via search, no luck.

Steps tomorrow: culling some ideas from a grant; joining a couple of World AIDS Day presentations; and taking a walk to buy bread.
