This week, I finished binging The Sopranos and then, as the result of an ill-advised twitter poll, I followed that up by watching all 6 seasons of the HBO prison drama, Oz. To be honest, Oz wasn’t really for me but twitter polls are legally binding so I was obligated to watch the whole series. I’ve now started in on Deadwood, which I should be able to knock out in about 3 days.
As far as our quarantine is going, we are currently in the process of reopening down here in Texas. Myself, I’m still working at home at least through June.
