Life Update November 2016

So, here's the short version of how things went.  Basically, the bad stuff from September & October pushed back some important stuff to November, so all of this month has been catch-up in real life.  And, unfortunately, December is coming in less than an hour, which means that, after I finish catching up on real-life stuff, I've got to do Xmas stuff.  Per my other update, I'll also be pushing to catch up on webcomics.  Per an older update, I'll also try to write some extra posts in December to make up for shortages.  That's it for now, though. 

Webcomic Catch-Up Update: November 2016

Once again, real life got in the way this month, though in a different way.  I managed to finish off the Real Life Comics archive, up to and including December 10th, 2015, which is the last known episode.  I'm working on catching up on my reading of Maq #041, but I don't even remember what was going on at all, so there's going to be some overlap again. 
I'm definitely going to take a more thorough dive into the old webcomic pile in December and January.  I want to be able to finish catching up in February, or maybe March, so that I can then do a new catch-up right after that and then finally get to the point where I just read the webcomics every night - and actually remember what's going on in the ones where that's relevant.  That, after all, is the overall goal of this:  to get back to the point where I've got the routine relaxation every night of reading my webcomics. 

Video Game Update November 2016

So, in an odd turn, I felt compelled to play my copy of Civilization V.  I never did finish a proper game of it.  (I'm not counting my training-wheels game from when I first got it.)  I'm pretty far along in my current game.  My biggest opponent for any victory conditions is England, who's currently oppressing 2 other countries. 
This, unfortunately, means that I haven't played much Minecraft this month.  December is looking to be less busy, but still pretty busy, so I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to just Minecraft out again.
