Just another gorgeous day in Minnesota in November. I did not set out to have an epic day of winning but sometimes it just works out that way.
To start I wrote my blog post for the day about Avast screwing me over. I woke up today to find out they, finally, got around to checking their social media and made a quick effort to fix it so I won that battle. More in a future blog.
Then I went and early voted. I did my civic duty and now I have the right to complain about government until the next election. (BTW that is much sooner than four years.)
Then I walked around downtown Minneapolis for a while. Visited the new park outside the new Vikings stadium. It is an area that needed green space. To bad the stadium looks like a sand crawler. I’m waiting for it to snow so I can push my nickname for it #SnowCrawler.
And then I did the thing that I am most proud of. I went shopping at a mall. No that is not the part I am proud of. I was looking for some good short sleeve work shirts. Didn’t find any. Then a thought crossed my mind. “It is November and Christmas is coming…”
I got my Christmas shopping done!
Yep. Other than a few cards etc., I have all my Christmas shopping done on November 5th. Now I don’t have to worry about that at all this season. I can avoid the retail meccas for the entire season. If that is not winning I do not know what is.
My day didn’t end there. I spent the evening with good friends playing SeaFall. We started a campaign of it and last night we play the first and second games. (The ones after the prologue.) I didn’t win any of these games but am an a good position for the next round of battles.
Oh and lest we forget. I got an extra hour of sleep last night.
My Saturday was all about winning.
