The Things: Vernal Edition

“Megatron, I don’t feel so good…”

Welcome to The Things, which is stuff that I’ve been into lately. It can be television shows, books, movies, manga, or whatever! So here are some Things that I’m into right now:

Ballpark Foods:

Pictured: a Whiffer Waffle with a side of seasoned waffle fries.

I admit it: it’s baseball season, which means ballpark food. As I’ve mentioned before, I love me some cheese fries, but I’ve discovered an appreciation for less than usual fare. The Whiffer Waffle is a prime example; it’s a take on chicken and waffles that actually works for me. A breaded chicken breast, topped with pepper jack cheese, bacon, sriracha, and maple aioli, sandwiched between two buttermilk waffles. It may not sound good, but it’s fantastic. Another favorite of mine is the Grilled Cheese Bacon Burger; this burger features a pair of grilled cheese sandwiches as the buns. I don’t pick that one very often, as I have to be ravenous to finish one. It’s a treat for myself while taking in a game.

Spock Memes:

I love a good meme, but lately I’ve been all about the Star Trek memes. Especially Spock. Because Spock is awesome and what better way is there to make your point than with logic?


This one is kind of a “duh”. It’s finally spring, we can finally take in a viewing of either the Timber Rattlers or the Milwaukee Brewers. I’ve been looking forward to this and it shows. One of my co-workers has said he can tell when I’m watching a Brewers game, because of the smile on my face.

あずまんが大王 (Azumanga Daiō):

Although Prime and I have watched this series before, we’re watching it again. If you haven’t caught it, give it a watch. It’s a slice of life series that’s both charming and hilarious. You’ll find a favorite among the group of girls fairly quickly; me, I have a soft spot for Miss Sakaki.

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys:

This is the follow-up to Between Shades of Grey, and it is fantastic. The story follows Lina’s cousin, Joana, and a handful of refugees as they try to escape from the advancing Russians and the inevitable collapse of Nazi Germany. Unlike her previous work, this novel features four different characters and four different perspectives; each character has their own secrets. It’s an exhausting book, filled with sadness but once you start reading, you can’t put it down. Although it’s fictional, the events that are described absolutely happened. Very highly recommended.


Ever since Mickey Dees started their all day breakfast, my choices have opened up quite a bit. It also helps that there’s free Wi-Fi, which lets me use my phone and gives me ample opportunity to make a blog post before work. The place has become a sort of bus shelter for me; it’s within short walking distance of a bus stop, it’s climate controlled, and it now offers decent fare. I’ve been hitting the place quite a lot, and for once, I’m not complaining.

So that’s what I’ve been into lately. If you’ve gotten into something of your own, drop a few sentences about it in the comments. Until next time!

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
