So I did get sick after all. I mentioned that sore throat I had gotten. Never fails. All my life if I get a sore throat I get sick. I got a cold and had some achy sleepless nights. I'm still sick now but doing way better. Chris took time off from work and took care of me. I was too weak to even game but I did try. I mostly watched Netflix. I watched the movie Mogli and boy did that suck. They changed so much. I'm a big fan of the book it just pissed me off. I hated it. It started with Bageera the panther dropping off Mowgli at the wolf pack. No, in the book Mowgli crawled his way there on his own. Tabaki is a jackle but they turned him into a hyena. They added a stupid albino wolf for no reason. They made kaa the python a female when he's a male. They didn't name some of the characters like Chill the kite or Hathi the elephant. They made Boldeo a white guy when he was an Indian and never gave him a name. They also made him nice when he's a big jerk. The final fight with Sheer Kahn was with elephants and not bulls and the elephants did not destroy the village. And many more. I'm a bit of an expert on the book. I love the book and not movie or cartoon has ever come close to doing it justice other than the Chuck Jones cartoon. Yes it was a long violent book and it was geared towards kids because people back then weren't namby pamby wimps and knew kids could take it and liked these kinds of stories. And as a bird lover they put in a scene where macaws flew by. There are no macaws in India. The budget went all into the animation but no research. I'd rather have a movie that looks crappy but is well written. Is it too much to ask for both?

Travelers season 3 is out. I have been waiting for that. But only 10 episodes. That worries me a bit. Chris and I got about half way through it last night. Only one bad ep and a few confusing ones just because there are so many new characters. I hope they don't screw it up. The first two seasons were great.

I finally got all the horses I want in Red Dead 2. The cheats worked beautifully. I have decent money in the game and my fave horses but I don't think I'll go online yet and I certainly won't allow updates. So long as nothing breaks the game I think I'll finish story mode off line in case I need more gold or specific horses again. My gosh I spent a whole day just trying to get the horse for hours reloading the game. Had to give up. The next morning I got it in a few tries. Chris said it's like the chest minine in Dragon's Dogma but for horses. Yes that's exactly what it is. I love that, though it's frustrating the low percents of the rare stuff like 2%. Funny enough I kept getting the rare Arabians, all three colors, that people lose their lunch over because it's the fastest horse. They are pretty but they are too small and the worst thing is they are cowards. They will buck you if an enemy gets close or if you're in a gun fight. That's a worthless horse then. If you can ride it I don't care how fast it is. I go the Missuri Fox Trotter which is like second fastest but that's not why I wanted it. It's part war horse so it's very brave and has high health so I can count on it in a gun fight or hunting dangerous prey. I need the glitch available in case it dies and I lose it. Then I can try for another one. One thing I hate about the game is I wish you could have more than four horses. It should be four horses per stable per town. That would make sense. Anyway the Missuri Fox Trotter is one you only get at the end of the game. Why do I have to wait til the game is over to get the best horse? Screw that, I love this glitch. I'm glad I took all the patches off and reloaded the game. Totally worth the time. Plus I love the color of my horse it's grey with white patches and white eyes. I named it Patchy the Pirate.

Well I still need to recover so I'll stop here for now. This whole getting sick thing has messed everything up on my schedule. I think cards will be late now. I got the paper in yesterday but I'm in no condition to drive. So I will call Monday and probably take them that day and see what kind of deal I can work out with them. And it will take a few days to print and then I can't write up more than maybe five a day without going nuts so it will take me too long to mail them out and yes they will be late. I need to come up with next year's art NOW and draw it long before Dec rolls around.
