Out of the Blue

The PoolTracker site that we use for our annual NFL playoff pool offers the ability to create an NFL draft pool, so I decided some of us might find this a fun challenge. Here's a link to the Blue's News 2020 NFL Draft Pool (password is "draft"). Simply pick who you think will be the top 10 players drafted in order in the first round of Thursday's NFL draft. You'll get 10 points for each pick you hit on the head and partial points for each pick that finishes in the Top 10 (10 points minus the difference between your pick and their actual draft order). The tie-breaker is to predict the number of trades in the first round. It costs nothing to join, and there is no prize, so all that's at stake is bragging rights. But as has been pointed out before, it's hard to place a value on those... they are basically priceless.

dreyerdaughter not into horror? i would've thought a highly rational mind like hers would enjoy it. i love the conflict between, 'iknow it's fake, but it's scary as fuck hooooooold meeeeee.'

nonsequitur: anyone got into investing during this stock market stumble? i did, looking for cheap stock tips with good rebound potential.

She gets too invested in the characters and freaked out. A lot of her entertainment is pure fantasy: campy vampire novels and anime. I think because her class load is all AP (physics, calculus, etc.) that she wants her downtime to be light and fluffy. Even her gaming lately has been Minecraft, which can hardly be called challenging.

I'll have to see if I can get her into some of the better vampire flicks. We watched Moffet's Dracula on Netflix and she really liked that. She also loved the movie What We do in the Shadows and has seen a few seasons of Supernatural. She'll get there. We started watching The Thing last year, and she couldn't get past the scene where the dog is creepily wandering around the facility.
