CCENT, Birthday, Wall, Table, Haunted

My life has consisted mostly of going to class and studying lately, but there have been a few actual events...

I took, and passed, the first level of Cisco certification, the CCENT, on March 2. I still have a ways to go, but that was gratifying.

I visited my father on March 5. Pretty much more of the same.

I had a birthday, number 61, on March 8. I've been trying to think of something clever to say about 61, but the best I can come up with that it is the smallest number, other than one, to have a value of one in modulus 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. This is both extremely obscure and not very interesting, which may make it an apt metaphor for my current mood.

On March 11, I went back up to Burlington, WI, for another iteration of "This Church is Haunted." Last time humanity won, and only one of the players got possessed. This time... Two players got possessed and rescued over the course of the game, but five of us were still domons going into the end game. Strange things happened as the end game played out, and at the very end, there were only two demons, but they won by a huge margin.


"The Great Wall" is a medieval Chinese steampunk monster movie that features Matt Damon doing a nearly perfect Brendan Gleeson impression throughout. Having said that, the film is far better than it deserves to be. This doesn't mean it was actually GOOD, mind you, but I don't regret seeing it.

"Table 19" is a "stupid people being unhappy" movie. There are lots of those. It is also a comedy, which makes it unusual, maybe unique. It does NOT make it pleasant to watch. The trailers made it look MUCH better than it actually was. Anna Kendrick continues to be adorable in everything she does, but you can't bail the Titanic with a thimble.
