The pup has been a loyal reading buddy but now she has to share space with the cat. She is most gracious in giving up her spots, at least for a little while but she has to have a clear view of whatever I am doing or it’s a big no. In this shot, Root Beer the cat is actually on my chest while The Otter Pup observes. This is how I read these days. I have cat hair all over me but I love it.
What am I reading? Murakami’s latest, Murakami T: The T-shirts I Love. It is the perfect read for me right now. Short observations and stories about his go-to, favorite t-shirts and why they stand out to him. The only complaint I have, is that on my Kindle it’s all B&W so although there are photos of the shirts, I don’t get the full design effect. I need to check out a physical copy to see all his colorful choices. It’s the perfect thing to pick up and put down in between things. Some passages are only a couple of pages long. I should finish it this week.
This Thursday my university is closed for a state holiday so I am off. I would love to spend it outside. After quite a bit of rain on Monday, everything is so crisp and new. I am hoping to get outside so I am pondering my options now. I don’t want to waste a good day off.
The other day I got a reminder to call U-verse about my expiring promotions so I spent thirty minutes re-negotiating what I am willing to pay. Next time, I may just drop it and go with streaming but once you add all your streaming services it’s not any cheaper, really. I didn’t get it quite low as I did last year but it will suffice for now. I would really love it if they deducted the cost of channels I do not want like OAN and all those infomercial channels. I could really do without any of it but the Hub likes his live sports and news.
We are all living in weird times. No masks anywhere now and yet numbers do seem to be rising but not alarmingly so. A second booster is coming. I have to think about it more. I am fully boosted but after all the health issues I’ve had of late I am worried what a second booster might do to me. I have some time to think about it.
That’s all I have. I hope you have a great day!
