Currents, October 2017


Drink: The amazing (and unfortunately, limited) Pineapple Spice flavor of IZZE.

Food: The frozen Trader Joe's Hatch Chile Mac 'n Cheese. For some reason it smells like jalapeno cornbread to me and I love it. Note to self: make jalapeno cornbread.

Podcast: I've been enjoying Good Christian Fun and I'm excited to try Zealot.

Celebrity Crush: I rewatched the first season of Top of the Lake can have all the feels for Johnno. (But don't get me started on what they did to his character for season 2--NOT COOL).
Book: I've been listening to--what else?--true crime. Most recently, Dead by Sunset: Perfect Husband, Perfect Killer? by Ann Rule and Devil in the White City. I'm about to start Whoever Fights Monsters: My Twenty Years Traching Serial Killers for the FBI by Robert K. Kessler and Tom Shachtman.

Project: I'm re-stenciling my bathroom with a new stencil design after some construction that was done in there this summer.

TV Show: I started watching Moral Orel thinking it would be silly and harsh on dogmatic conservative Christians, and it is, but it's emotionally eviscerated me. Young Maryann may not have been as naive as Orel, but I see so much of her in him. And the music is everything.

Movie: The only movies I've seen recently are ones lampooned by the Mike and the bots.
Obsession: It's lame, I know, but it's become very important to me to have Wet Ones (or their generic equivalent) wherever I go. Like, the ability to have clean hands no matter where I am has strangely crept into my top self-care priorities.

Thankfulness: Thanks to help from my parents, I'm going to start getting allergy shots. I'm cautiously optimistic about them helping me be less congested and less tired over time.

Worry: I feel like I need to find a middle ground between pride for doing hard things by myself and knowing when it's OK to ask for help.

Fashion: Anything made of sweats material that meets two requirements: it's black and it covers most of my body.

Music: I'm loving The Choir Practice (that I of course heard first on Moral Orel).

Reminder: "Having perfected our disguise, we spend our lives searching for someone we don't fool."
