    Thank you for tagging me! So many things I want to say about this post. The song is great and the video is too haha. Woodworking is such an awesome skill to have. The bunk bed and purse rack are both beautiful! You’re a regular Ron Swanson. AND I love video games too. What are some of your favorites?

    • J.W. Martin says:

      Thank you for all the kind things. I’ve only recently started watching Parks & Rec, but Ron is definitely my favourite character, so that compliment means that much more.

      Favourite video games? That’s tough. Ever-changing. GTA, Hitman, Fallout, and Dead Rising are all ‘auto-buy’ series. I’ve been really good for the past couple years and don’t play video games very often. I might play 1 day a week, if there’s time and I feel like I accomplished enough writing that day or week.

      How about you?

      • Elizabeth says:

        I just finished Parks & Rec a few weeks ago and I miss the characters so much. Such a funny show.

        I haven’t played GTA since like…Vice City I think lol, but I definitely had fun with it. I love Fallout so much. I started with Fallout 3, which is my favorite, and I’m actually STILL on New Vegas (just finishing up the last 2 DLC’s) because I never have time for games anymore either. I probably play 1-2 times a month at this point. Some other ones most recently are Borderlands, Diablo III, Far Cry Primal, and I love my Nancy Drew games.

        • J.W. Martin says:

          Ohh! Far Cry is cool! Though, I haven’t played Primal. Just Cause is another cool one.

          • Elizabeth says:

            I’ve never played Just Cause but it looks fun! Primal is my first FC game but the one coming out in February looks awesome. I’m excited that it will be co op!

          • J.W. Martin says:

            Are you XBOX or PlayStation?

          • Elizabeth says:

            PlayStation, but mostly pc! You?

          • J.W. Martin says:

            Playstation? I’m sorry. We can no longer be friends.

            Lol. jk. I’m XBOX. Used to be a PC gamer, but got tired of always having to upgrade my machine to be able to play games. Plus, I got a MacBook a few years ago and now I don’t think I’ll ever go back to a PC.

          • Elizabeth says:

            Haha 😂 Yeah, I get that. I’ve had the same computer since 2008(?) that my ex built for me and only now is it starting to bother me. I can’t even do max speed in the sims without it getting jumpy on me. *sigh* But last month I bought a laptop (not a gaming one) but good enough specs to play Fallout and skyrim on highest settings so I’m happy. I just couldn’t justify upgrading my computer and spending all that money when I have no time to play games.

          • J.W. Martin says:

            SKYRIM! I forgot to mention Skyrim. Love that game. But I can’t play anymore. It’s too much time to invest.

          • Elizabeth says:

            It really is! I’ve done most of the side quests, most of the main quest, and all the guild stuff, but now when I go into the game I have no idea where I am, what I’m doing, and my pack is all full of junk. So I just leave. Lol

  2. Your woodworking is amazing! Wow!! And you mentioned your wife makes book purses?! So cool!! Does she sell them? How did you like Thor: Ragnarok?! I saw it opening weekend and I thought it was really great!

    • J.W. Martin says:

      Thanks! Yes, my wife does sell the odd book purse. She doesn’t make a lot of them, but when she does, she tends to want to keep each one she makes. Our local used book store owner almost refuses to sell her books now, cause the creation involves destroying a book. 😐

      I thought Ragnorak was awesome. Definitely in my top 5 of the MCU movies. I cannot wait for Infinity War! I suppose Justice League this weekend will have to suffice for a while!

  3. Gravity Falls is everything and I’m so glad someone else appreciates it! Personally, I’m not a big video game fan but my bf is so all the knowledge I have is passed on from him 😛

    • J.W. Martin says:

      So much of what my boys watch doesn’t interest me in the least, and vice versa. But then these little gems come along that we can all enjoy. Teen Titans Go, Wreck-It Ralph, and, of course, Gravity Falls!

    Gravity Falls is awesome!!!

  5. What kind of video games do you play? I am loving the new call of duty on my ps4, but I usually play Dark Souls 3 or Fallout on my PC. Bloodborne is my absolute fav., but I also loved Dead Space and Bioshock.

    • J.W. Martin says:

      Fallout is one of my favourite series of all time. I also like the GTA series, Hitman, and Skyrim. Lately, I’ve been trying not to play video games. I usually set myself a task, and if there’s time after getting it done, I get to play video games. Usually, though, there’s one a half hour before bed, and I’m not going to play video games for half an hour. Even if I mean to, it won’t work out that way. I’ll end up playing for two and half hours and be tired as hell the next day!

  6. Gravity falls is great!! Wow that’s really impressive that you do woodworking! haha I love your choice for something oddly specific 😉
