First Currently Meme Of 2015

Current clothes: Dark gray sweats. A t-shirt from White Sands National Monument (mostly black, with a narrow horizontal picture of sunrise or sunset over the sands across the chest). White socks.

Current mood: Fairly well-rested, for once.

Current music: Nothing in particular.

Current annoyance: Winter. This planet is entirely too tilted for my liking.

Current thing: Trying to stick to my let's-not-call-it-a-New-Year's-resolution New Year's resolution about eating better: three decent meals a day, with minimal, healthy snacks. So far, I'm doing surprisingly well at it. The key seems to be keeping myself distracted enough that I'm not paying too much attention to the way my body keeps telling me that it really, really wants to eat an entire box of cookies right now.

Current desktop picture: The holidays being over, I have just gone back to my favorite book-themed wallpaper.

Current book: Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. Which is moderately interesting, but mostly what I'm taking away from it is that Steve Jobs was a giant ass.

Current song in head: The Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun." Wishful thinking, really. Well, OK, it's nice enough out today that we may finally be completely rid of last week's snow by nightfall. But then, I thought that yesterday, too.

Current refreshment: Nothing. I should drink some water.

Current DVD in player: The last disc of season 6 of Mad Men. For the longest time, I couldn't quite get what all the fuss was about with this show, but eventually it more or less converted me.

Current worry: My inheritance check finally came, which means that, for the foreseeable future, my financial worries have largely been alleviated. Which is an immense load off my mind. Now I can stop worrying about money and go back to worrying about my health.

Current thought: Thank you, Uncle Tom, for remembering me in your will. You may not have had any idea just how much of a difference it would make, but I am truly grateful.


  1. I stalled out on Mad Men somewhere in Season 2, years ago, respecting it a lot more than I ever liked it. I keep thinking I should re-visit it, but I just don't know.

    1. You know, it might be fair to say, at this point, that I respect it more than I like it. But that seems to be good enough. There have been a few episodes that have impressed the heck out of me.

  2. Since you used some of your inheritance to pay for your roof work, shall we name your house "Uncle Tom's Cabin"?
