gift art, strong 

an amazing gift from @poetfox, drawn by twitter.com/catarazzo !

voice assistants, internet of things 

i'm honestly kind of glad that save the basic xbox voice commands when i had the kinect hooked up (i don't have the adapter cable they stopped making) & occasional use of siri when my hands are busy, i have no interest in using other voice assistants much

i've got an echo dot because it was free when i switched ISPs, it's currently unplugged

i've switched everything i can off related to google assistant on my android tv box and whatever my actual TV has

family tech support, but it's not me fixing things this time 

aunt got my grandmother a google nest hub(? whatever the one with the screen is), and hasn't shown her how to use it properly

but right now it's erroring immediately on saying ok google before you can even say the rest of the sentence

i assume a reboot would probably fix it, but my aunt gets funny with trying to help out with anything she's bought

christmas, secret santa gifts 

i got some pride pins and dragons from my secret santa gifts, among other things!

(i already had this particular spyro figure, but now i've got one for my desk at work!)

just cause 4: the expansion packs 

the demon pack gives some areas a cool redesign, gives you a appreciatively overpowered crossbow, but the missions aren't great

the danger pack gives a hoverboard which helps with moving in some cases, but the locations are all fairly boring submarine bases, and all the missions are just extended smash up the base ones

it feels like a de-escalation compared to just cause 3's final pack with the rocket wingsuit and flying up to take care of sky fortresses

just cause 4: the expansion packs 

so many good games to play, i instead decided to go back to a bad one

fundamentally, your opinion on these is going to entirely depend on how much comfort you find in repetition, because they all fall into the pattern of "do this thing that's kind of interesting once, then do it again 6+ times"

so far, the dare devil pack has been the one i liked the most because it's been a while since i played a good combat driving game and it kind of scratches that itch

work 

apparently i got the highest number of employee of the week awards this quarter for my department (this doesn't seem right, but i'm not arguing)

if it includes some vouchers for the company bonus thing, i'm cashing them all into vouchers for the local DIY store to get a heavy duty tool chest for fursuit transportation (and hoping it works with my horns, it looks like it should from the measurements)
