Welcome to my weekly dump of the geeky stuff in my life! For last week’s list, click here.
What I’m Watching: Jessica Jones & White Collar
Good news, everyone: There was one more season of White Collar than I thought! YAY! The Smuggler and I also started watching Season 2 of Jessica Jones, so it really just depends on our mood which one we pick. Need something happy and more lighthearted? White Collar. Need fantastic storytelling and are ready for some heavy sh**? Jessica Jones.
Both shows currently available for streaming on Netflix.
What I’m Reading: Grain Brain by Dr. David Perlmutter
Non-fiction. Usually, I hate non-fiction. But this one is SUPER easy to read, has good info, and I’m hoping can help me figure out why my body hasn’t liked me at all for the last year. I’m just a few chapters in and definitely recommend. (The above link isn’t an affiliate or anything, just including it in case you’d like to check it out on amazon!)
What I’m Playing: Dragon Age: Inquisition.
I played multiplayer for the first time last night, and that was new and fun! I chose to be a mage, which was totally against my instinct, and ended up being rather enlightening. Mages tend to drive me frickin’ bananas whenever I’m playing campaign, (because COULD YOU STAND ANY FURTHER AWAY? NO. YOU COULDN’T.) but after figuring out the fighting style I have a new appreciation for them. It also helped me learn how to better utilize them during big campaign battles.
Also: I do not like the Fade.
What I’m Listening To: The Critical Role Podcast.
A bunch of nerdy voice actors playing D&D. The show is actually streamed live once a week with a video cast, but I’m a busy mama who needs the convenience of an audio podcast. It’s fast paced, good storytelling, fun to hear the actors interact as both players and characters, and the DM is amazing. (Side-note: I listen with headphones in or when the kids aren’t around because of language and violence.) Perfect for cleaning the kitchen, doing chores, long car rides (again, without children listening), and it makes me laugh so hard! Also, since I
have no idea how a young nursing mother is even supposed to find a group don’t yet play D&D , this is how I’m learning to understand the game and getting my fix.
That’s my four for this week! What what geeky things are you enjoying today?
