Currently is a quick and easy way to share what's up every other Tuesday. Thanks to the lovely Katy Upperman for the idea! 


Last week I finished a bunch of books I've had on my nightstand for a bit. Yay! I'm incurring late fees at the library for Me Being Me Is Exactly As Insane As You Being You by Todd Hasak-Lowy, which is a novel written entirely in lists. It's cute so far. I also started reading Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas today and I am loving it! 


I've been bingeing on Melisssa and Joey (it's like a new-fangled Who's the Boss) which is admittedly kinda ridiculous but apparently entertaining enough for me to keep watching. I also started watching Cinemax's Outcast - another comic book adaption by the creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman. I haven't read the comics, so I had no expectations as to the material. The first episode aired on Friday night and it was definitely creepy, kinda gross, and oddly intriguing. I'll give it another week.

I also went to see the movie Sing Street last week. It's about a boy in the 80s who forms a band after he invites a cute girl to star in his music video. There's also an awesome older brother, tons of 80s music references, big hair, and blue eyeshadow. I was probably the youngest person in the theater on a Saturday afternoon, which had me worried, but it turned out to be a win for me.

Listening To

This week I continued my yearly re-listen of Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Boys Series by starting book 3, Blue Lily, Lily Blue. I love this series sooooo much.

Thinking About

I'm also doing some research on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion for a story I'm noodling on as I'm making slow progress on my current WIP. I've had some interesting ideas for this story lately, so I'm trying to figure out how it all fits together without stopping my forward progress on my current project.

Making Me Happy

Spending time with SoundMan now that things have slowed down at his job for a little bit. Yesterday was the 24th anniversary of our first date. For hilarity, here's a picture of what we looked like back then give or take a of couple years.

How's it going with you guys? What's making you happy right now?


  1. Aww! Happy first date-iversary! That picture is amazing. :-)

    I'm also listening to a Raven book -- the 4th. It's pretty fantastic so far. Maggie Stiefvater's prose is so freaking enviable! I haven't read Liz Czukas's ASK AGAIN LATER, but I did read her WHEN JOSS MET MATT and I *loved* it. Definitely an NA favorite.

    Have a great week, lady!

  2. Happy belated first-date anniversary :) that is smile-inducing. And I need to watch Outcast!

  3. 24 years of epicness, eh? I love it. You two are so cute. Truthfully, I can't get into Maggie Stiefvater. Yay for everyone who can, but her story arcs just don't hook me. *shrugs* Or at least they haven't on the three of her books I've read. So yeah, I think I've given her a fair shot.
