Winter is gorgeous. It's cold and cosy, and the air is crisp, and often smells of woodsmoke as folks gather around their fireplaces. You can drink mulled apple cider and hot chocolate, and cuddle with people without immediately dissolving into a slimy sweat puddle. Winter is fabulous.
My favourite season is autumn, though. The air is cold, the sun still warm. The leaves are spectacular, and you get all the benefits of winter (hot drinks, cuddles, cosy blankets and tea) without the wind chill.
What we have now is a heat warning. It's going up to 34 today, and is supposed to feel close to 40 thanks to the stupid humidity.
I'm not happy.
Still, I'm slowly muddling my way though working. I'm editing and would be writing, but I'm combing through my stuff for to have my taxes in on time, so I'm focusing my writing time on that until it's done and handed in. Next time, I'll be hiring someone to do it for me, because I have a confusing number of sources of income and jobs and shite, and I am not inclined to spend the brainpower on this again.
Oops! I'm all about the complaints today!
Let's talk about something good.
I spent too much money a month or so ago, and bought myself a VR set for my Playstation. I have only two VR games, currently. Skyrim (of course!) and Beat Sabre. I've not yet cracked open Skyrim because I'm afraid that if I do, I'll just disappear into the world and die of starvation in real life, or something.
I have played Beat Sabre. It's really fun, actually. It's physical, which I quite like (though my arms are not as sore as I'd expect them to be). It's also challenging in the right ways. In this instance, it's a challenge to my hand-eye coordination and rhythm, and reaction timing.
For the record, I also adore puzzle games like the Myst series, and am really looking forward to the day that they are available in VR, because that would be super immersive and wonderful.
I've been playing Beat Sabre for roughly an hour and a half in the evening. I'm super impressed with it thus far. It really does feel like you've been transported to a new world.
Right, that's about enough to be going on with. I'm off to get more editing done.
