Life right now
I’m reading Life After Life for June’s book club, and oh, it’s a good one. I’m on the streetcar one minute, but in the next I’m in London during the blitz with the brick dust in my throat, listening to the sirens. And wondering what the next outcome for Ursula will be. Pick that one up, you’ll really enjoy it.
I’m cramming in old episodes of Arrested Development.
Season 1, episode 9 is on as I type this. I missed the boat when it was on. Actually, I was out of the country (in London, no brick dust) so I guess I do have a pretty good excuse. I’m enjoying it, and I should be on the 2013 episodes fairly soon. I’ve also got plans to plough through this season of Mad Men (I’m so behind, for some reason) and season 2 of Girls. And I haven’t watched the end of the most recent Doctor Who season. I have to say that I mostly enjoyed the dynamic between Clara and the Doctor this season, but I didn’t actually like most of the episodes that much. Not so memorable.
I’m consumed with work while at work, and seemingly consumed with ferrying boys to soccer outside of work. Also, I’m 24-7 consumed with checking Twitter to get any possible updates on the news out of Toronto City Hall. One day I’ll look back at this post and wonder why I’d be doing that. Dear future Emma: the mayor of this wonderful city smokes crack. Allegedly and neither Emma or the CBC has seen the video and can not verify it’s contents.
I’m cursing the suddenly 30°C temperatures, but loving the lush green of the gardens and trees. I’m tired of cooking dinner every night, but anticipating all the produce that summer brings, and whatever, let’s just chop all of it up and eat it just like that. I’m annoyed with the ferrying of boys to soccer, but loving their enthusiasm and the low-key-no-parental-pressure teams they are on.
I’m waiting to hear about babies being born, and sending a co-worker off into the great beyond of retirement. I’m making lots of summer plans with friends, old and new.
What’s going on with you?
