February Currentlies

Well, that's one month of 2019 down! I don't know that I have a lot to say about my January. It seems like I was very busy, but I don't really have a lot to show for it. Although I did finally replace my ailing smartphone. And my car battery (again). And we won't even get into the frustrations I had with my new health insurance provider.

Right. Let's do this thing again.

Current clothes: Gray sweatpants. A red shirt with cover art from Isaac Asimov's I, Robot. White socks.

Current mood: Tired. Physically tired, as opposed to all the other kinds of tired I usually am. Today I finally repainted my laundry room ceiling after having the water damage in there fixed. And a very amateurish job I'm sure it was, but that just means it matches the rest of my house. Anyway, it involved a lot of climbing around on ladders and sniffing paint fumes and stuff.

Current music: Nothing at the moment.

Current annoyance: Tiredness and general having-to-be-an-adult.

Current thing: Tiredness and general having to be an adult.

Current desktop picture: I've gone back to one of my old book-themed wallpapers, but I feel like I really should find something new.

Current book: The Shelf: From LEQ to LES: Adventures in Extreme Reading by Phyllis Rose. It's about the author's project to basically take one shelf from a lending library and read (more or less) every book on it. Which sounds like my sort of thing, but I'm genuinely surprised by how interesting I'm finding it so far.

Current song in head: Nothing at all, really.

Current refreshment: Moroccan mint tea and a Cadbury fruit & nut Dairy Milk bar. Because I need it.

Currently watching: I'm re-watching Fawlty Towers for the first time in a couple of decades. It's not quite as hilarious as I remember it being, and it's showing its age in some ways, but at its best, it's still stupidly funny.

Current happy thing: I have a new car battery and a working smartphone and a repaired and painted ceiling, and my maddening issues with the insurance company have finally been sorted out, so maybe I'm finally caught up with the adulting for a while? Except, wait, I just remembered that I still have to do my taxes. Sigh.

Current thought: I wonder if that irritated feeling in the back of my throat is due to paint fumes?
