The Giants played a day game yesterday so I decided to watch Peacock TV!

It Was Almost A Full Bourne Identity Night!

I looked into streaming Peacock TV last night. Lo and behold I find the Bourne Identity trilogy is playing. Ok, I hadn't seen these in a while decision making is done.

So I make it through BOURNE IDENTITY fine and start BOURNE SUPREMACY with delusions of watching all three in one night! Well, I make it through #2 barely, eyes are getting heavy and the bed is sounding good.

I decided to fortify my effort to get through LEGACY with some lemon meringue pie and decide to watch this one from the comfort of the bed. Hello, five minutes later I pass out. The good news is I still have this one to watch. I don't mind the commercials. They do offer a commercial-free version for a couple of bucks a month we'll see. Check it out.
