So much stuff has been going on, a lot of it really heavy and depressing – world stuff, and personal. I have been self-medicating with:
- My first playthrough of Mass Effect; psyched for Andromeda now. May replay ME2 but unlikely to play the others again. Currently replaying Fallout 4 just because it soothes me.
- Books, including Mary Sangiovanni’s Chills, K. C. Alexander’s Necrotech, Cherie Priest’s The Family Plot, Gleick’s Time Travel: A History, and Arnold’s Necropolis: London and its Dead.
- Bourbon, tea, and thick socks
There are also a couple of new loves in the household. Both need caring for, which is good for everyone.
The Remy dog:
She is the sweetness. Enjoys Dirk Gently, milkbones, and nocturnes.
The Underwood #3: after lots of cleaning, tinkering, replacing rollers, etc, she’s up and running. All she needs are new decals and a single key top. Maaayyybe a bit more polishing, but hey, she works.
