Just determined I won't be going to Fogcon, so I'm feeling sad today. We had to pay taxes this year (when previously we always had a big refund), so the money was not going to work out. My sweetheart stonebender
and his sweetheart loracs
offered to pay a big chunk of the expenses, but there were other problems with going, so I'm not, and I'm sad, but it's not, on the whole, a bad thing. Now I have to decide whether to keep my upcoming vacation time or cancel it and use it for something I want to do later. On the other hand, my co-worker is going out on a long maternity leave in April, so maybe it would be good to take it while I can. Anyway. Don't have to decide today.Reading
Have I read anything
this week besides work papers and Twitter? I don't actually think I have!Listening
Literally every previously quiet moment in my brain is taken up by snippets of Hamilton
. Over. And over. And over. Still obsessed. I bought myself the soundtrack and pre-ordered the book, and it's SUPER tempting to spend way more money than I have to get tickets to the San Francisco run.
I used to listen to Here & Now
on the way to work, and Marketplace
on the way home from work, but now I take the kid to school in the morning and drive my student worker to the trolley after work, so I don't. I miss it, but not enough to ask the kids to listen to NPR with me.Playing
Mostly Two Dots. I keep hearing that The Witness is wonderful, but my download failed and I didn't try a second time.Watching
James and I re-watched the Blade series and all the monster movies we own, and now we're re-watching Austin Powers. Before I met him, I had only two or three movies I ever re-watched. Now we watch the same ones over and over. It leaves my mind free for other stuff, and he likes sharing the chill time.
No Jessica Jones this week. The kid just started school and work got busy for me, so we're both too tired to bother.This entry was originally posted on Dreamwidth (DW).
