June Currentlies

No, I didn't forget that it was time to check in here again!

I don't know that there's a whole lot to say about May, though. I think the most interesting thing that happened was that I confirmed to myself once again that, why, yes, if you only go bowling once every decade or so, your skills at the game really will not come back to you in any appreciable way. Oh, well. It was fun trying, anyway.

And now, your regularly scheduled... whatever this is.

Current clothes: Blue jeans. A blue shirt that says "Visit Mars: satisfy your curiosity" on it, with a very happy-looking Mars being roved by a very not-to-scale Curiosity Rover. It's cute! Also blue socks with the planets of the solar system on them. I really like these socks.

Current mood: A bit tired, but generally pretty good.

Current music: Not much at the moment.

Current annoyance: There are many of them but the biggie is that I am almost forty-eight and my body has decided that it is now "old lady" time. Result: hot flashes. Freaking hot flashes. Lots of them. Actually the last few days haven't been quite as bad, mercifully, but at the worst, I can have the damned things more than once an hour. It's kind of awful. And what is this even about, anyway? Why would my body chug along happily enough for a few decades and then just suddenly lose its ability to thermoregulate properly? Evolution, what is even wrong with you?!

Current thing: Aging, apparently. Well, they say it beats the alternative, but I think there really ought to be more than one alternative.

Current desktop picture: Still the Orville crew.

Current book: Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou. Which is a great book to read if you want to be angry at the world.

Current song in head: Nothing much at the moment. Which I am very grateful for. I had Jonathan Coulton's "Re: Your Brains" stuck in my head for most of May, and... Well, actually, for the first couple of weeks it was kind of fun, but even Jonathan Coulton eventually gets unbearable if it echoes around inside your head long enough.

Current refreshment: Ooh, the kettle should be hot now. Brb, getting some mint tea.

Currently watching: I just finished Good Omens. Which I really enjoyed, if only because of how perfectly cast the two leads are and how weirdly adorable they are together.

Current happy thing: I've been in some kind of a mood where I'm happy about lots of completely random things lately, which is in itself very much a happy thing. It's certainly better than those moods where I'm randomly annoyed about everything.

Current thought: Come on Tom, just let me in so I can eat your stupid brain, will ya?
