Time: 11:45 am
Eating & Drinking: Herbal Tea, thanks to the wonderful kettle I got for Christmas. How can I have lived without it?
Reading: Christmas Pudding, by Nancy Mitford and a bunch of scientific papers. Grad school, where you'll read until you die, and never for fun. If I blogged about the papers, I'd have like three entries a day. At the end of the day I'm so tired of reading and critically engaging with the material that I don't want to go on reading - thus, my Christmas reading is still unfinished.
Writing: a paper. Yay! But blergh.
Watching: Sherlock - E2S3 (The Sign of Three). Have I ever told you how this series blow my mind? I'm writing something on this. As soon as I finish the last episode, it will go live. I'm just allowing myself an episode every two weeks so I have Sherlock for a longer time. I don't want to go back to the hiatus.
Listening: Welcome to Night Vale - E6 (The Drawbridge). I started this series a couple of weeks ago because Tumblr had made me curious about it and it is pure gold. You should listen to it! I love Cecil, and the weather report, and Carlos, and the dog park.
Loving: Grim Fandango. It's an old adventure game created by LucasArts. You play Manny Calavera, a Grim Reaper (a travel agent of the Department of Death), charged with escorting souls from the mortal world through the Land of the Dead to the Ninth Underworld. The puzzles are good enough, the story is intriguing, the characters are unforgettable and the setting is beautiful.
Hating: the flu. I can't wait to be fully recovered from this flu. I lost my voice for a whole week! It's frustrating.
