Currently Autumn and I’m not a complete shill

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a ‘currently’ post, so why the hell not. Here’s what’s current in my life these days.

Currently

watching: Besides watching Avengers: Age of Ultron a million times, new Fall TV. How to Get Away With Murder. It’s so bad, but I became hooked on it last year when Snark Squad recapped the first season. And I can’t say enough about Viola Davis.

But otherwise, this show is bad. And I feel that the answer to ‘how to get away with murder’ is to commit more murders seems flawed somehow…

I’m also watching the new season of Doctor Who. I really wasn’t sold on Capaldi’s version of the Doctor at first, but he is quickly becoming my favourite Doctor, second only to Eccleston’s Doctor.

And the Blacklist, because I have a love for James Spader that I can’t explain.

reading: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I know, I know. But it’s all Snark Squad’s fault. I’m one of the recappers for the 31 Days of Twilight, so really, I’m rereading it for you guys. I’m also reading Felicia Day’s book, it’s been good so far.

I finished the Allegiant series, too. And just… nope. No more futuristic distopian worlds, please.

listening: Vance Joy, still. For always. I’m really digging Georgia by Vance Joy. And I’ve basically been listening to this playlist on repeat.

making: I baked a lot of bread for Thanksgiving last weekend. Like, a LOT. Otherwise, I’m mostly just making a mess.

feeling: Unsettled and restless.

planning: How to survive the next two months without completely loosing it. And yet another home reno.

loving: Snark Squad’s 31 Days of Twilight. Okay, so maybe I’m shamelessly plugging this a lot lately. But we put a lot of work into it and it’s been such a fun project. I’ll be sad when it’s over.

My Funko Pop collection.

The fact that the Federal Election is tomorrow and I won’t have to put up with anymore of these terrible political ads for at least a week or two before they all start campaigning again.

Autumn and all the things that come with this time of year. The leaves turning colours, the cooler weather, long walks with my dog on the weekends, sweater-clad coffee dates.

 

Currently… it’s 2015.

Happy New Year!

Yes, yes. I realize it’s February.

I haven’t blogged yet this new year. I was sick December and January and most of my free time was spent in doctor’s waiting rooms and recovering. I’m finally on the mend and starting to feel like a human being again.  I’ve been writing a bit for some clients and have about half a dozen half-finished blog posts.

They have yet to see the light of day, because I get inspired to write a blog post, get halfway into it, then decide it’s a stupid idea for a blog post, so it sits forever as a draft.

I might finish them and publish them. Or I could run away and join the circus.  Hey, anything could happen!

In the meantime, I’m adapting rukristin’s Currently project to give a quick update in to what I’m into and up to lately.

Currently

watching:

Not much, to be honest. Lots of Raptors basketball games. How To Get Away With Murder, but mostly for the snarking.

reading:

Yes Please, by Amy Poehler. It is a phenomenal memoir.  And she gives some really great sex tips. I’m only half kidding.

listening:

Taylor Swift’s Blank Space (don’t judge!) and Riptide by Vance Joy.

making:

A mess, usually.

feeling:

Restless. And tired of winter.  Even if it is pretty…

My current view. #winterwonderland

planning:

World Domination. Finishing some blog posts. Some projects around the house.

loving:

Having cable again so I can watch every Raptors basketball game. Fieldnotes Brand notebooks. Feeling human again. It’s been a looong eight weeks.
