just a boring update (one last thing!) 

just a boring update 

Between getting a straw cowboy hat, the boots, and probably new jeans soon, I'm a bonafide cownby.

I'm still around. Just getting through each day.

The most exciting thing to happen to me since I last posted is that (at my mum's recommendation) I got myself a pair of cowboy boots, as an early birthday gift. They're awesome.

Unfortunately I think I will be able to reuse this quite a few times.

I seldom express sentiments like these, at least on here, but...

*Fuck* JK Rowling.

Most of my posts are apologies for not being more active.

So, sorry I haven't been more active lately. I've been pretty reserved even though I'm still pretty much living a life of solitary confinement. I guess there's a lot I could be posting about but, as I've mentioned before, I feel like the bar here is a little higher than birdsite.

I do lurk and read every day, though, and I'm grateful for all who post/repost great stuff! <3

blah / anger issues (-) 

I hate that, without fail, if I spend any amount of time relaxing on my patio, the next day I have horribly itchy eyes that Zyrtec does naff-all about.

It's no fun being cooped up indoors.

Time to revive an old practice, since I'm back to sleeping at normal hours: good night, friends. I haven't been posting but I've been here. I hope you have a wonderful night or day, or whatever it is where you are.

non-binary shitpost 

*Really* early on, I used to make a habit of saying good night (or morning, or whatever time it was when I went to bed) to the Shop and all the people who, for whatever reason, follow me on here.

May start doing that again, just to have that connection, since a lot of us (like me) are kinda cut off. But back in the day I worried it got annoying, and so I stopped. So, we'll see.

Weirdly specific question: is there a standalone mp3 player that is really good for audiobooks *and* doesn't cost an arm and a leg? The less frills, the better.

Watching real baseball players play fictional video game baseball on a real TV sportsball network.

2020 is weird.

I'm watching tennis. I've *never* done this before. It's... exciting? I never would have done this before, but hey, crazy times.

(disclaimer: I have played tennis, and have played/watched badminton, so it's not totally unfamiliar, but still!)

I've been working on two different writing projects (one with a collaborator, one solo) for the last two years - the one I'm working on with my friend is more important and has been in the works for longer than two years. We've vowed to finish it before 2020 is over.

I remembered summarizing everything we'd written so we could take a step back at what we had so far, but it turns out I wrote such a summary for the solo project and not the collaborative one.

Fiddlesticks. I need to stick to one.
