Not so good the first two nights. So incredibly awkward.
Gave up the last two nights trying to get to bed, did do it later in the night after getting up.
I really hope it gets a whole lot easier.
So the last couple nights I have been watching some on demand Olympics. Last night was more of the standard bearer sports of swimming and track and the enjoyable women’s rugby sevens final. Today was the more obscure sports of archery, shooting and especially modern pentathlon.
The Comcast on demand had a men’s archery final and a men’s skeet shooting final but sadly not the women’s event. And for modern pentathlon they only had highlights.
Luckily I had the NBC Sports app downloaded and I was able to watch the incredibly fun running and shooting final of modern pentathlon. It’s an odd combination, fencing, 200m freestyle swimming, show jumping and then a biathalon without skis.
So the final race is a 3200 meter run in 4 800 meter circuits with a laser shoot where you have to hit the target 5 times or wait 50 seconds near the beginning of each 800m circuit.
This part of the event was pretty awesome. You get advantages on points from the first three events, seems like the show jumping faults can make a huge difference. Each point advantage gives you a second headstart on the run and shoot.
I personally would enjoy the run or even walk and shoot on a track. Either just a mile with shooting on every lap or an 800m cross country circuit.
I have to admit fencing always intrigued me. I have always loved the water, even if I dove terribly. Show jumping never interested me at all. But I think you could have just a swim, run and shoot and see how it goes.
The run and shoot event is kind of awesome. I will have to watch the women’s event tomorrow. Go modern pentathlon, especially the final event.
And I would love to watch some more archery too.
I’ve done the two sleep studies and tried the CPAP the second time. I remember I had wicked drymouth but do have Biotene spray.
I got the machine today and did nap but upstairs so I haven’t tried it here yet.
I hope it leads to much better sleep but definitely feels weird tonight.
I guess I will find out soon.
I have had tiredness issues even with a good night’s sleep for years.
I hope it helps.
Up early at 5:30am for work. I actually can nap for a bit when I’m on call too but very tired when I get out.
I watched the very good “I Love Dick” that Amazon has the pilot for. I think I want to read the book.
I also finally finished Jim Harrison’s “The Summer He Didn’t Die.” Beautiful day and I wanted to read more but I went downstairs and took a nap for about 90 minutes.
I felt much better and then took about a 45 minute pokewalk.
Naps can really make me feel more balanced. I wish sometimes I could set my own schedule and nap when I needed to.
I’m getting a CPAP machine on Wednesday and wondering if I will need less naps. I am often quite tired so it would be a good change.
One thing I don’t like about HBOGo is it doesn’t remember all the episodes you watch. This is very annoying for someone like me who has watched a bit of Veep, In Treatment, Ballers, Curb Your Enthusiasm and a few other shows. The show I watch most consistently is Last Week Tonight with John Oliver which doesn’t even save every show.
The two HBO shows I have flown through and the very fun Hung and the absolutely amazing and greatest television show of all time, The Wire. Both of those are on Amazon Prime. Well, I did run the Brink season 1 too. And I did run through Carnivale over a decade ago when we lived in New York.
I tried Hulu very briefly but the commercials drove us nuts, next.
Amazon Prime is the streaming service we have had the longest. It’s easily worth it just for the free shipping. Especially with my wife. Shopping at Amazon can be a lot easier than the store. I have flown through Mozart in the Jungle, we did run through Catastrophe season 1. Lanna gets Starz through it and enjoys a lot of movies. It’s also nice to be able to buy series and episodes. I’m a Anthony Bourdain fan for instance and I enjoyed watching some of Parts Unknown. This season I noticed we have that in demand on our limited cable. Lanna has bought 1 season of Supernatural, Doctor Who, Agents of SHIELD and a few others. This season we are catching up with Agents of SHIELD on Netflix.
But, honestly we easily watch Netflix the most. I have flown through House of Cards, we have flown through Grace and Frankie season 1, the first two seasons of Arrow, the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and a few others. I also love watching documentaries and we both nap to David Attenborough. It also has the best search and predictive software.
And we used to have DISH and DVRs but they get wicked expensive. We have some limited cable with our very high speed internet 150mb. But, honestly have probably watched it more this fortnight with the Olympics then in months. I do sometimes nap to golf, especially after work on Sundays.
I enjoy having streaming, having to mute the commercials during the Olympics felt weird. As does how many of the commercials keep showing up over and over and over again.
I do enjoy the Olympics. I wish it was easier to watch the replays without NBC’s “help” in not allowing replays.
I had a nice walk playing Pokemon Go, dropped a lure, lucky egg, and incense and then got a text the pizza arrived. So I got the noid. Yes a 30 year old Domino’s reference.
And it’s good to write every day.
Even if it’s just writing something.
The place where I put my electric guitar cable to the guitar, the aux almost fell into the guitar today while I was cleaning it.
The washer and the nut got loose and the screw wanted to fall inside the guitar.
I was able to eventually get the screw to stay down, slip the washer on and put the nut on again but I was definitely worried.
Hopefully gravity could have fixed it regardless.
But, glad I was able to fix it. And I will have to check it a lot more in the future.
Honestly, I haven’t hooked it to the amp or even Rocksmith in months.
Nice to be able to figure it out.
