July Currentlies

Not sure where the heck June went or how we're this far into the year already, but here we go:

Current clothes: Blue shorts. A gray t-shirt that says, "I'm not lazy, I'm prolonging the probable heat death of the universe by conserving energy," which is the kind of physics joke that amuses me unreasonably. White ankle socks.

Current mood: I'm in a really good mood, and have been for the last couple of days. I've got some extra time off this week. I've been getting enough sleep. I've been getting some things accomplished, while not stressing out about the things I haven't gotten accomplished. And all of life's little pleasures seem somehow more pleasurable than usual. It's pretty great. I'm fully expecting it all to dissolve tomorrow morning when I have to get up and go to work, but I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

Current music: Nothing much.

Current annoyance: Still the stupid hot flashes, although I think they maybe haven't been quite as bad for the last week or two.

Current thing: My televisual enthusiasms continue to fluctuate rapidly. Right now I'm mostly fighting off the urge to go and watch Good Omens again. Possibly on a loop. I maaaaay have just bought the script book and the making-of companion, too.

Current desktop picture: Current desktop picture, unsurprisingly, relfects the current televisual enthusiasms, so The Orville is out for the moment and Good Omens is in.

Current book: On the Move by Oliver Sacks.

Current song in head: I think it's mostly been a medley of Queen lately.

Current refreshment: Mint tea.

Currently watching: For a while now, I've been watching Kolchak: The Night Stalker off and on. It's a TV show from 1974 about a reporter. But no matter what he's sent to investigate, it always turns out to be a vampire or an alien or an evil spirit or something. I find I have interesting mixed feelings about it. Part of me keeps thinking, geez, is this was TV was like in the 70s? How on Earth did we watch this stuff? But part of me finds it rather charming, in its own quaint way. (And then all of me feels very, very old at how antiquated the television that aired when I was a child seems now.)

Current happy thing: Being in a good mood, having time off work, and getting enough sleep! I mean, really, how often does all that happen? Especially that last part.

Current thought: When is someone gonna bring me that dump truck full of money so I can retire and have time off of work and enough sleep all the time?
