Finally got an online game of Diablo II going with my girlfriend after much network wrangling. And amazingly, thus far it seems like she likes it! We got as far as the A1 monastery last night.
I am so
excited for D2R even if Blizzard is terrible. I've been playing Project Diablo 2 (and Path of Diablo before it) casually every other season or so and I am hyped beyond belief to finally play the core game again. It's my favorite game of all time. I'm going to Corpse Explosion all the things.
In other news I was deeply saddened by Norm Macdonald's death. He was profoundly influential on my sense of humor.
Norm was one of the few to got better and better as he got older. His single season show on Netflix and his most recent special were really terrific. What a loss.
: That's happened to me before. I hope your insurance company took care of you!
I've started giving COVID shots to people who are being compelled by their jobs, and the ill-informed, self-righteous, batcrap complaining never ceases! Some guy came in yesterday to get his second shot. He has a mask hanging around his neck that looks to be made of battered cheesecloth:
Me: I'm gonna go ahead and give you this mask.
Him: Oh I've got this one.
Me: Yeah, but I can see through that one.
Him: This is a KN97! It's better than that one. This is a $50 mask!!
Me: *trying to calmly convey that I'm going to stay civil but this exchange is an insult to both our intelligences* ...Alright [with insincere tone]
When I went over to give him the shot, he was wearing the mask I'd given him and didn't complain any more. I have had it with these people.
If I had one general piece of advice for the world right now, it would be "Please keep yourself open to the possibility that you are wrong. It's okay to not know everything."
