It was a really good week for me.

I finally made another burger based on Bob’s Burgers: the “Son of a Peach-er Man” burger. It was delicious; I’ll have to do a separate post about it!
This week I also started what is now my fourth TTRPG: Cyberpunk: Red. It was character creation night, so no actual in-game story has happened yet, but I’m having fun with the background things and playing with Hero Forge.
My character is named K2 (either “Kay-Two” or “Cato”) – a Rockerboy in Night City.

The one person to vote in my Twitter poll agreed with me.
If you haven’t listened to Spectre yet, here it is:
Move over, Mariah Carey; Green Day gave us a present that makes “All I Want for Christmas is You” sound like scales played on a toy piano. Feast your ears on this:
At they very least I think we can all agree it’s much better than anything Michael Bublé has done. Seriously, this should have dominated the airwaves this Christmas season. Oh well, there’s always next year.
Happy Christmas, Music Lovers!
