BTN 2.0 7/52

An overall good week, but efforts in some areas meant others weren't done

Net Cash: $226.45
A bit of overtime last week, but once again work messed up my payslip. I only got paid for 3 out of 4 hours of overtime I did last Sunday because while I did 12 hours I'm only meant to be able to work up to 11 hours of work in a day so I couldn't have worked that last hour and didn't need to be paid for it. It should be in my pay for this week.
Jobs applied for: 0
This is one of the areas I didn't do anything in this week.

Calories: 3438 Calories over target
Weight: 94 kg
The previous two items are quite likely related
Fitocracy points: 1891
Strength training unfortunately doesn't burn much in the way of calories

Bike Riding: 497 km
Hit a nice round number with the odometer reading 90,000 km when I checked after getting home tonight. The odometer reading when I got the bike was 46,465 km so I've almost got the majority of the riding on it now. Give it another month or so and I'll be there.
Books read: 0
Mordant's need obviously isn't as engaging as I remember it being when I read it back in high school.
Games played: 14. 1x To Court the King, 2x 7 Wonders, 1x Shadow Hunters, 4x Magic: The Gathering, 4x Race for the Galaxy (two with the original expansions, 2 with the Alien Artifacts expansion), 2x The Manhattan Project
Movies watched: 1 Robocop
One of the really strong points of the original I felt was the reclaiming of Robocop's humanity, in that neither Murphy nor his friends or family knew that he was Robocop and this rediscovery was the core journey of the movie. In the new one everyone is aware it's Alex Murphy, including Murphy, which removes that whole emotional arc of the movie and just leaves you with working stiff gets screwed over by corporate scumbags, which isn't enough to hold a movie by itself.
