December Currentlies

I'll be honest here: I came fairly close to just not even bothering with this post. More and more, this blog feels like a relic of the past, and more and more even posting this here often feels kind of pointless. So I don't know whether you'll see anything from me in January or not. But, well, it seemed wrong not to at least round out the year. So, for the moment, here I still am. And here this still is.

Current clothes: Blue jeans. A gray long-sleeve t-shirt with a picture of a spacewalking astronaut on it. Blue socks with a design featuring the planets of the solar system. Brown work boots.

Current mood: Not too bad, all things considered. (Said "things" mainly being my as-usual weird-ass work schedule and accompanying bizarre sleeping patterns.) Just a little frazzled, maybe, because I'm posting this fairly quickly, as I have somewhere to be soon.

Current music: Nothing much.

Current annoyance: My "somewhere to be soon" is, in fact, a dentist appointment. So my current annoyance is teeth. Are they or are they not the stupidest body part? I'm gonna go with yes. Yes, they are.

Current thing: Having lots of things I want to do with my time and not nearly enough time to do them in, and still somehow spending far too much of my life doing dumb time-wastey things.

Current desktop picture: Still The Good Place.

Current book: Gold Fame Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins. I'm about two thirds of the way through, and I swear, the more of this novel I read, the less I know how I feel about it.

Current song in head: "You're So Vain" by Carly Simon. Which I'm pretty sure is not, in fact, a song about me.

Current refreshment: I just ate a bacon cheeseburger for lunch. It was good.

Currently watching: Recently finished watching Chernobyl. Which I thought was going to be tough to watch, but, honestly, after reading Voices from Chernobyl, which it seems to have been largely based on, the TV series was nothing. Seriously, that book was probably one of the most painful things I've ever read in my life. The series was very good, though, and its themes are depressingly relevant today.

Current happy thing: Hey, I did get enough sleep today! That's always a real happy thing for me.

Current thought: Carly, please, I have never owned an apricot scarf in my life.
