@Tattooed_mummy Nope. Most people take acetominophen, ibuprofen or naproxen. Aspirin is sometimes taken by people with heart disease. But we swallow it with water!

@stjaerna I'm reading Colson Whitehead's John Henry Days. Such a great writer. I'll get back on my SFF horse next week.

I went to a book event for Elizabeth Bear's new novel The Origin of Storms last night. It was great to be out among book people again.

Very happy to get my paws on just released The Origin of Storms by Elizabeth Bear. 3rd book of the Lotus Kingdoms series. Should I wait for the long weekend or take a sip? goodreads.com/book/show/558188

@twotone Glad to hear it. I will have to wait for the weekend.

@nalohopkinson That's a great one. Here's one from Boston, warning that trees have limbs which are generally above your head. Good to know!

Very, very excited for the Sandman on August 5!

@shopbot @phildini I want to recommend Trapped available on Amazon. It's an Icelandic murder mystery show which just keeps getting better. Dark but rich with character and well-made.

@shaunduke It would have to be Agatha Christie just due to the sheer number of novels.

It's funny how you forget how beautiful the trees are with leaves, and then stop noticing as summer comes to town.

@bovil Thanks for the recommendations. I should have included the Solar link: solarthepodcast.com/

I'm enjoying the sci-fi podcast Solar, which is a radio play. I also started Rabbits which seems interesting. Any recommendations for other fiction ? Waiting impatiently for the return of LeVar Burton Reads!

Really enjoyed . I appreciate how they've got the old Trek swagger plus the new cast diversity. Only thing that bugged me was that La'an seems to be a copy of Drummer from . Did anyone else feel that way?

Woke up with this lyric on my mind: "If you plant ice you're gonna harvest wind". It gave me a sliver of hope on a dark day.

"It's May, it's May, the month of yes you may
The time for every frivolous whim, proper or im" 🌸
