I’ve been working on a post (or two or five) for weeks. It’s not coming yet, as I am still processing events from the end of October. Now, also November, or more accurately, throughout the past year?

To start off, neither me, nor any of my friends or family won the Queen of Hearts. Big sad face. The next round will start with a $100,000 jackpot and the drawing on December 6th (ticket sales starting November 27th). It turns out that however many tickets they sell during the week before the jackpot is won is how much starts the next jackpot. So, it’s a super high starting point, but it will go back to 54 cards in play (including the two jokers).

I’ve spent most of the past month mindlessly binging shows like it’s my job, playing endless rounds of Spades (which I just need to delete from my phone!), and checking out trying to avoid all of the things. But, if you haven’t seen Deadloch on Amazon Prime, it is FANTASTIC!! It’s billed as a “feminist noir comedy,” (IMdB). It has just the right amount of humor and mystery to keep you glued episode after episode. It was just what I needed (and would love to find something along these same lines if you know of anything in similar fashion).
