Current Annoyance: My glasses are smudged and scratched, and it’s distracting me. All of my microfiber cloths are dirty at the moment, so I can’t wipe them.
Current Bane of My Existence: Waiting for fingerprinting. I’ve been tentatively offered a job with the IRS out in Burlington, VT, and the closest appointment I could book for the fingerprinting and background check was the 21st. Which isn’t really a “bane,” such as, but more than annoying.
Current Book(s): So Long, and Thanks For All the Fish by Douglas Adams and Parking the Moose by Dave Hill. I’m also debating whether or not I want to buy a copy of The Bomber Mafia by my sapio crush. If I’m moving back to Vermont, I’ll wait.
Current Clothing Thoughts: My new yoga pants are super-cute. Black with embossed gold astrology symbols.
Current Color(s): Black. Raise your hand if you’re surprised. //beholds a field barren of raised hands// That’s fair.
Current Crush: Malcolm Gladwell, as always. And Reeve Carney, who plays Orpheus in Hadestown.
Current Drink: Iced coffee.
Current Excitement(s): Both the IRS job and potentially moving back to Vermont!
Current Feeling: Impatience.
Current Films: None recently.
Current Food: I just had a turkey bacon and egg white sandwich from Starbucks. It’s okay. Nothing worth writing home about, but I’ve been doing really well with my weight loss recently, and I want to keep it up.
Current Goal: None right now. I’m waiting to see about moving or not.
Current Guilty Pleasure: Aldi has these filled chocolate bars that are heavenly. My favorites are the milk chocolate filled with yogurt and dehydrated strawberry pieces, and the dark chocolate filled with dark chocolate cream and hazelnut pieces.
Current Indulgence: See above. Also, I bought myself a pair of Doc Martens for Easter, which counts, I think. I just polished them for the first time today. Oh, and I got waxed this morning, for the first time in over a year. My eyebrows are tamed, yet again!
Currently Listening To: Nothing.
Current Mindfuck: The fact that I’m not being mindfucked. Say whatever negative things you want about Biden, they’re mostly true, but I am so, so glad that, since January 20th, I’ve woken up every morning and not have to have thought, “What fresh hell did he tweet while I was asleep?”
Current Mood: Impatient.
Current Music Video: “The Men Who Rule the World” by Garbage. I do so love seeing Shirley as Maria from Metropolis.
Current Outfit: Black jeans, work tee shirt, black Ghost 12s.
Current Project: None.
Current Self-Image Thoughts: Better, now I have un-become yeti.
Current Slang or Saying: Um…
Current Song Lyrics: “Stuck inside my head, stuck inside my head, all the fuckin’ time!“
Current Triumph: I intentionally over-paid on my highest-balance credit card by $325, and I am nowhere near broke. Also, I’m at 56 hours for this week, and by the end of today (when my company’s week ends), I’ll likely be at around 64 hours, or possibly 68. Depends on how late I stay tonight.
