Hey all. When you’ve done a particular thing for about 10 years or so, it’s good to take a break from it – especially when it’s not as enjoyable to do anymore – and becomes more of a chore than something that energizes you. And nothing energizes me quite like staring at a lake:
My husband and I (and occasionally others joining in) played virtual trivia games127 times during the year 2021! That number also includes two in-person games. We’ve been playing pub trivia games regularly since 2012. We’ve been almost exclusively virtual since the long, long ago and the before times (meaning when the 2020 COVID pandemic hit).
If and when I do get back to playing trivia games (hopefully in person ones), the recaps will be a lot more abbreviated – and not include word-for-word questions. Changes the virtual hosts are making with their Zoom chat settings are the reason for this. I just don’t have the time to recreate questions from scratch or write them all down during games – only to have to take the time to type them all up later. When I used to have earlier work schedules I’d have more time during the afternoons for these things, but my later work schedules make this more difficult. When I get home from work, my husband is also finishing his shift at work – and it’s more important to spend time together. When I get days off, I have too many things competing for my time – laundry, cooking, housework, choring, errands – sadly, blogging is usually bottom priority these days. Sometimes I can combine the “choring” with blogging time, as I am now (writing this while I’m working on a pile of laundry).
I’ll still post blogs about all topics when I’m inspired to do so.
Thanks as always for following this lonely, pointless blog!
