I feel sleepy these days, most of the time. Is it the weather, or the whole pandemic thing dragging on and on, or… There could be a bunch of reasons, really.
I hope that at least the weather will stabilize at some point…though preferably not at a heat wave or something.
Of course, an end to this pandemic would also be great, but the way that way too many people behave, I doubt it’s happening soon (you won’t hear me complaining if I turn out to be wrong).
Current mood? Not in the mood. But hey, there’s another photo of that cute neighborhood biker cat up there, and that’s something, too.
After who knows how long, I’ve sent a story to a contest. Fingers crossed!
Other than that, it’s the usual: working, reading, sometimes watching something.
Currently reading: Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of the Anonymous by Gabriella Coleman. I’m about halfway through, and it’s a fun read. There’s a lot I didn’t know (no surprise there), and I’m pretty certain that there will be a lot I don’t know about the Anonymous once I’m done with the book. But then again, I suppose that’s the point: with the amount of law-breaking going on (for a good reason, or for fun, or both), they have no reason to want others to know too much about them.
Also recently read: 8 books since the last post, including Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White (you all know that one, right?), Smrt u ružičastom (Death in Pink) by Đorđe Bajić (a crime/thriller), The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones (a really good horror book), Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future by Ashlee Vance (lots of interesting information there), Kult Gula (The Cult of Ghoul) by Dejan Ognjanović (chosen texts from his blog from the last 10 years), Ravan – Podnebesje by Dušan Paučković (fantasy, sort of, plus a bunch of other things, about things happening in the afterlife), A Strange Country by Muriel Barbery (if you’re looking for something like The Elegance of the Hedgehog, this is not it), and Srneća leđa (Chocolate Loaf) by Ana Marija Grbić (wonderful short stories).
Currently watching: Wellington Paranormal. The same world as What We Do in the Shadows, and the same type of humor. It’s fun, but binge-watching it would be too much.
Currently working on: work, when there’s any (typically it’s writing book blurbs and book titles).
And that would be pretty much it. Happy holidays, if it’s Easter now in your part of the world, and if not, enjoy yourself anyway!
