It’s finally raining

I’m writing this post while listening to the refreshing sound of the rain falling on the terrace.

HBO’s Chernobyl was amazing. Beside the scientific reasons, the catastrophe could have been avoided, if not for the pride of the soviet regime during which mistakes had to be hidden instead of addressed.

Netflix’s When they see us was the second great TV show we’ve been watching during the heatwave. It brings back to debate about the death penalty and how, to me, it’s always better to let a guilty man alive than to kill an innocent.

The other faces of Kiefer

Lately, during my last home-working lunchtimes, I’ve been watching Designated Survivor.

After hours watching Kiefer Sutherland trying to be Mr. President, it got me thinking that all his roles weren’t always that bad.

On top of my head, I remember him as a vampire in The Lost Boys, which I can’t even mention without hearing this song in my head and, my favourite, Sam Stanley from Twin Peaks: Fire walk with me.

As for Designated Survivor, wouldn’t it be for the terrorism plots, I don’t think that I would have made it to the end of the first season.

Climatize me

Brussels, 37°c

Today is one of these rare days when I’m happy to be at the office. While Brussels is burning under a scorching sun, I keep cool thanks to the AC of the finance tower.

I wanted to take a picture of the view from my usual lunchtime spot at Starbucks, but it was so crowded that we had to sit somewhere else. Cold spots are very popular on days like these… Instead, enjoy the view from my office.

Radioactive Noodles

On Tuesday evening, Sisqi and I normally have a few drinks and listen to music before eating pastas. For reasons that are mostly histamine related, we decided to quit drinking a week ago. So, instead of getting drunk, we ate homemade noodles while watching Mamytwink’s trip to Chernobyl, then we watched the first episode of the HBO TV show Chernobyl. It was a very nice evening. Big thanks to my wife for coming up with such a great plan, preparing the food and helping us keeping sober.
