Tim Shaw and Amusement Parks

Y’know, the real ones with roller coasters and funnel cakes.

It’s been a busy, if somewhat tiring weekend. I actually didn’t get a whole lot of gaming done. My entire Sunday was dominated by a trip to a local amusement park.

The company I work for used to have a yearly trip there every October, but it’s been several years. I can’t imagine that it’s cheap, to be honest, so I get it. It’s nice though, considering my children are now old enough to enjoy it properly. I think my oldest was 2 last time which is still a bit young.

It’s not an overly big place, really. Many of the rides have not only been there but in the same location for as long as I can remember. We ended up operating in two semi-independent groups because my youngest wasn’t quite tall enough for about half the rides.

It’s main claim to fame, in fact, is having some rather ancient equipment. Including an old wooden roller coaster and a precursor to the modern log flume ride that was allegedly the first ride in the park. I look at some of these beasts in operation and from a maintenance perspective I can’t imagine how much of pain that work would be.

Naturally when I got home I watched the new episode of Doctor Who. Man was Tim Shaw ugly.

I’m not going to say much here, as I’m not a huge fan of spoilers and it’s been less than 24 hours. I look forward to seeing how Jodie Whittaker’s role plays out. I’m slow to judge and easy to please, so I’ll probably like it. My coworkers are a combination of liking her and still on the fence, which was a better reception than Capaldi got.

Honestly, at this point, I’m still tired and a little sore, so I’m gonna go try not to sleep. Y’all take care.
