(Title is a random quote of myself, because I couldn't come up with a fitting one out of the blue)
Well, I'm coming up on two weeks since I returned from Providence. I miss
it still, but a bit of the NRE (New RealEstate Energy) has faded. Still
wish I didn't live somewhere that my allergies hate. Oh well. The
grass is always greener in the other city.
Real life has been well, life. Work is alright, haven't had anything
big to deal with. Things get a little busier after this weekend, but nothing
crazy. At home it's about the same, I had plans last weekend to do a bunch
of stuff, but I stuck to chilling out at home for the most part. This
weekend is socializing on Saturday, and chores and stuff on Sunday.
Read a random book on medieval cities, finished it last night. Was a sort
of trip down memory lane, as my first big history nerdism was European history
from post Empire to the Hundred years war. The focus was the city of Troyes
around 1250, so lots of things I knew, and even more than I'd once known,
and have since forgotten. Bit of a change from my usual Greco-Roman or
Mesopotamian history that's my usual flavor. In the weird fiction real,
I'm reading a collection I picked up at StokerCon, 'Black Pantheons' by
Curtis M. Lawson. The stories are pretty good, but the last, and longest
is kind of hard to read. Main character has some form of dementia, and
lives in a retirement community. Yeah, that doesn't stir up memories
for me at all. But still worth reading, especially for the first story and
the eldritch version of Pinocchio.
So yeah, that's about it for me. Having a nice quiet Friday night, been
watching 70's British horror flicks and futzing around online. Night all,
and I hope everyone has a good weekend.
