I am surprised. This is great. This new track from Martin Gore. I have pretty much written Depeche Mode off after 1992 when they veered into electro-blues which I hate, with abysmal albums like "Ultra", "Exciter", "Sounds of the Universe". "Mandrill" is a great new track from Martin Gore.

I had managed to level my Sorcerer to level 100 after a hiatus of two years. This was a troublesome build. I changed it four times. Now, it is decent albeit fragile.
It is dependent on the Obliteration power, which is item-based.
I had known from the beginning that it would not work out due to a few things I observed. All the same, I had loved her with all my heart. It didn't matter how or what she was, my love was unconditional. I had planned carefully that I would look after her, I would look after my health as well as to be able to grow old with her. In the case that I wasn't around, I had given thought that she would be provided for, that she would be comfortable in her old age. In the end, things had not worked out. Years have passed, it took a lot of time before the pain in the void in my heart would fade.

I played too much War Thunder last night. I will play a bit more to upgrade my Crusader tank before I stop. I will also stop playing Warhammer 40,000 Inquisitor: Martyr.
I have one last character in Grim Dawn that I would like to level to level 100 and equip him with legendary items. My sorcerer is level 89 now, just a bit more.

A friend had remarked that I had been extremely patient with him. Yes. Fifteen years. It was a long time in coming. It wasn't a capricious act. As observed by a friend, I have been patient, it was fifteen years before I decided that he isn't a friend, whereas two of my friends blocked him within seconds of reading the idiot's comments. I had warned that idiot earlier this year. And years before, I had told him off for his boorish behaviour.
I am fine with differences in opinion but I am not fine with idiocy. It takes me time because I am sentimental, I don't like cutting off friendships. I take friendships seriously, even virtual ones. As I grow older, I rather cut off friendships with toxic people. Life is really too short for that, I rather spend time with good friends.
The ironic thing is that it is over the anti-China narrative. And I don't even like or care for China. However, I simply hate nonsense. The anti-China hysteria is Trump nonsense. The anti-China hysteria bothers me. And for those who know me, I am hardly attached to Chinese culture or Chineseness in any way.

The lockdown doesn't really end, The lockdown or circuit-breaker as the government calls is still mostly in place but most companies except retail and eateries are restricted. It might take a month, it might take more time, it might take less time before things are less restricted. We shall see.

The shelves were finally done, now, just a few hundred books to wipe clean.
