May Currentlies

Whoops, May kind of snuck up on me while I wasn't looking. But I'm not too late with this, I guess.

I don't think I have a whole lot to say about April, though. Well, I did have Vir back into the vet for another (stupidly expensive) blood test, and his glucose levels look great. So he's still a grumpy old lump of a cat, but at least he's a grumpy old lump of a cat with well-controlled diabetes. Yay.

Right. On to the usual.

Current clothes: Blue jeans. A t-shirt from the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy center, where I got to see the space shuttle Discovery a few years ago. Black socks. Brown boots.

Current mood: An eensy bit annoyed from some stuff at work, but mostly OK. I actually got enough sleep today, which really helps when I'm working a night shift.

Current music: Nothing much. Except maybe this country song written by a computer.

Current annoyance: Aside from the usual annoyances of my life, there's the fact that Firefox broke horribly last night and disabled everyone's add-ons. They've got a fix in for it now, but it completely failed to work on my desktop at home. As far as I can tell, I'm the victim of some other problem that's causing a problem with the fix to the first problem, and Mozilla has no idea what's going on with it. Sigh. I really hope that gets fixed. Because, my god, the internet is a dystopian hellscape if approached without an ad-blocker in place. Well, at least it's working on my laptop.

Current thing: Feeling old and getting nostalgic. About, like, everything.

Current desktop picture: In honor of last month's "currently watching," I downloaded some wallpaper for The Orville. It's nice wallpaper, but I kind of wish I could have found one with Talla rather than Alara. Nothing at all against Alara, but of the two Talla is definitely my favorite.

Current book: Down These Dark Spaceways, edited by Mike Resnick. It's a collection of science fiction mystery novellas.

Current song in head: I've been getting snatches of Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive." Apparently that song will never die.

Current refreshment: Just finished some diet Pepsi.

Currently watching: I saw The Avengers: Endgame in the theater a couple of days ago, and... Eh, it was OK. On the small screen, I recently watched One Punch Man, on the recommendation of a friend, and also just fished season two of The Magicians. One Punch Man was delightful. (Well, if you can ignore the homophobic bits. Sigh.) My feeling about The Magicians so far is very much the same as my feeling about the books. It started out feeling like something I that seemed like it ought to be up my alley but wasn't quite doing it for me, but then got much more engaging as it went along.

Current happy thing: I don't know if I have any one big happy thing at the moment, but I am making a point of appreciating lots of little happy things.

Current thought: May the fourth be with you!
