Happy New Year!

The Christmas Break came and went in an exhausting whirlwind of travel, gifts, and delicious food. The kids were all happy with their big presents: Terjoe got a GT Snow Racer, Wilmick got a record player and a Tragically Hip LP, and Aarjay got the Lego Star Wars Sand Crawler and in hindsight those gifts perfectly encapsulate the core of their personalities.

For myself I didn't get much, just some gift cards, a cheap bluetooth headset for listening to music at work, and some bluray discs for the collection: "Ant Man and the Wasp" and "Black Panther".

I had two copies of Ant Man and the Wasp so I exchange one back at Walmart and used the credit to pick up a Magic the Gathering deck, and Terjoe used some gift money to pick one up as well. I got a Boros pre-made deck and he went with Dimir. A long time ago my wife and I got into Magic before disagreements made us put it away (I was right for the record but please please do not tell her that), but now that the kids are growing up and we are both more mature (well, older and wiser at any rate) we are going to give it another try. After all, Yugioh and Pokemon CCGs are pale imitations to the grand daddy of them all.

On the computer front I played Overwatch and Pubg Mobile when I could, enjoying the winter events and the new map on the latter. I didn't get any Steam Gift cards so no new games at this time (my google play cards went to adding to my music library).

My family also spent a fair amount of time catching up on movies such as Captain America: Civil War and Lord of the Rings : The Two Towers.

With all the kids at home and myself we've been using the internet like never before so I did some research into VPNs for.... reasons. I came across this guide on the 5 Best VPNs for Overwatch that might be handy if you are unfairly blocked (if you were fairly blocked, I suggest you re-evaluate your life choices and strive to be a better human being).

Anyway, I'm back at work now (ugh) and it sucks. Happy New Year.
