July Currentlies

July has been slipping away from me fast. Here it is, time for this already!

Current clothes: Blue shorts and a white t-shirt that says, "The angels have the phonebox." Because I am just that much of a Whovian dork. Also white socks and brown boots, although I should take those off, because my feet are kind of hot.

Current mood: OK, although mostly right now I'm wondering where the hell this day went. I intended to get a bunch of stuff done, and then suddenly I looked at the clock and it was 4 PM and I'd barely even done anything. I'm trying to make up for that now, though. (Yes, "update blog" was actually an item on my to-do list.)

Current music: Nothing much at the moment. I'm once again trying hard to get caught up on some of my podcast listening.

Current annoyance: Oh, mostly just the usual "Why do I have to be a responsible adult?" crap.

Current thing: I cannot stop myself from obsessively watching random episodes of Shark Tank. This is all my sister's fault.

Current desktop picture: Still this bookish image. Maybe one day I'll change it again.

Current book: Shovel Ready by Adam Sternbergh. I'm not very far into it, but I'm already enjoying it a lot.

Current song in head: Nothing at all at the moment. Huh. That's a little odd.

Current refreshment: Orange spice tea.

Current DVD in player: Most recently, the original Mad Max. After seeing and loving Fury Road, I figured it'd be interesting to revisit the original movies. Or, in this case, to visit for the first time. I never saw any of them in the theater, but I had remembered catching random pieces of them on TV, back in the day. But, while I'm pretty sure I caught at least some of The Road Warrior and maybe a decent-sized chunk of Thunderdome, it turns out I hadn't seen any of the first film at all. Or at least, it seemed entirely unfamiliar to me, watching it now. And... Well, unlike Fury Road, I don't think it can be described as a good movie by any reasonable set of criteria, even if it does maybe have a few moments of some sort of cheesy, violent charm. But I do feel more pop culturally literate, I guess, having finally watched it.

Current worry: Everything will go wrong with everything!

Current thought: I am starving. It may be time for a slightly early dinner, very soon.
