October Currentlies

Well, here we are in October. I don't have a whole lot to say about September. It was a lot less interesting than August, which is no bad thing.

Current clothes: Right now, I'm wearing a giant bath towel, because I just got out of the shower.

Current mood: My mood seems to consist of a layer of genuine good cheer over a slightly deeper layer of irritation.

Current music: Nothing much. Still spending most of my listening-to-things time trying desperately not to fall further behind on the gazillion podcasts I'm subscribed to and failing miserably.

Current annoyance: It's that time of the year, and my sinuses are bothering me. They're not too awful today, but I woke up with one hell of a sinus headache yesterday. Sigh.

Current thing: Trying to do less time-wastey stuff like, I dunno, sitting mindlessly in front of my computer clicking random things on the internet, and more time doing stuff that's useful or actively enjoyable. It's an on-going, long-term project. How well it's going is... debatable.

Current desktop picture: In honor of the start of the final season, I switched from the Good Omens wallpaper to The Good Place wallpaper. (This is a switch that entertains me since, while they're both unique in many ways, I'm pretty sure I could write a multi-paragraph description that would fit both equally well, starting with the general tone and working all the way down to details like "and there's a supernatural entity who wears bow ties." Possibly I find this more amusing than I really ought to.) I really like this image, but I'm not sure I'm going to keep this wallpaper for long, sadly, as my icons don't stand out from it very well.

Current book: During-the-Event, a sort of post-apocalyptic/dystopian thing. It's... Eh, it's OK.

Current song in head: There's been been a strange mishmash of songs in the ol' brain lately. Right now, I seem to be alternating between "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri and "Come as You Are" by Nirvana. Which may be the weirdest medley ever.

Current refreshment: Nothing at the moment. But I'm kind of thirsty. After I put some clothes on, I should make some tea or something.

Currently watching: Just started season 2 of Disenchantment.

Current happy thing: My sinuses may currently hate me, but, hey, at least I finally seem to be over the bronchitis! The lungs are still occasionally producing some goo, but I'm pretty sure that's just the allergies at this point. Because if my body doesn't have an invader to fight off, it will just go ahead and invent one. Sigh. But! For the first time in two months, I can actually recognize my own voice as sounding like me! Huzzah!

Current thought: Right. Time to get dressed and get on with my day, I guess. Onward!
