    Black Friday then Cyber Monday coming up. Got the itch.

    Nothing big that I need, I'm really very happy with the computer/tv entertainment stuff I've bought in the last year or so.

    I need a new keyboard/mouse combo for my main computer, my inside keyboard has some keys that don't work, others stick, and the mouse is the generic that came with the computer.
    I can finally get rid of the wireless mouse in the shop that only works in direct line of sight with the receiver on the desktop, argggh. Wired mice from now on. I want a nice backlit keyboard too.

    I still have my old 32" tv, still works, even though I generally don't watch tv in my bedroom I'll set it up there in case I can't sleep or there's something I want to see.
    I'll get a fire tv stick lite, they're $17.99 now and may go even lower Friday or Monday. I'll need a new OTA indoor antenna for it too.

    And I'll be keeping an eye for any killer deals on woodworking tools, solar battery/generator stuff, I could use a new/better/more powerful wireless router too, but those are back burner.

    Fun stuff

    This from the guy who fell into smart phones so passionately.

    6 months down the road, you'll be watching a telenovela at 4 AM, 2 hours before you have to be somewhere.



    ^ I threw you a softball there. Right down the middle.

    You're like a dagger...
    And stick me in the heart, and taste the blood from my blade...
    And when we sleep, would you shelter me in your warm and darkened grave..?

    Working nights in Houston I got hooked on this for a while



    Didn't understand the language but the women were hot. It was also hilarious watching without understanding the language, the blonde would wear the most outrageous outfits and go to like the grocery store, church etc., it killed me.

    Sad thing, Mexican soap operas often run for only one season.

    Done with the weed harvest, all trimmed and buds in mason jars for curing.

    Total haul: 3.5 ounces. Disappointed, I've got much much more out of just 1 plant before, this was 3, but I know why.
    Rough upbringing, and they didn't have enough time to grow dense compact buds and were more leafy instead, which I had to trim off - lots of waste. They were also small plants, not quite 3 feet tall.
    I'll do better next year.

    This is just fine though, as I've tried the first plant, and it's good. The high is kinda fun and goofy, puts me in a good mood; I like it. Can't wait to try the other two plants after they cure enough.

    Fun stuff

    Ha, the keyboard/mouse combo I want, $31.99, has now gone down to $23.99.

    It's a lightning deal and I happened to look at it at the right time; 25% price drop and Ima get dat mufuga.

    I'll receive it 3 days before Halo Infinite, that should be just perfect

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NLZUM36/



    * I just bought it, it said 5 hours left on the deal but when I went to checkout it said "11 minutes left to claim deal".
    I had to change some stuff first, it was like defusing a bomb with the clock ticking down, but I made it.

    Remember, I know it's an old TV trope but always cut the tangerine and magenta wires.
