It’s the ninth day of the year, my ninth day in a row thumbtyping something into this publishing machine, because the streak is just getting started.
Have I ever blogged here nine days in a row before? Mayyyybe at the beginning, in grad school, excited about everything.
Have I ever written nine posts here without a link dump / clip show / recommendation post?
So here are three things…
- I’m reading Space Opera, which opens, more or less, with the greatest alien arrival scene since Hitchhiker’s Guide, and seems to go on very much in that spirit. So far.
- I listened to the Song Exploder podcast on Fleetwood Mac’s You Can Go Your Own Way today in the car, with Lindsey Buckingham. Well, he wasn’t in my car, but, well, sort of. Anyway, it was lovely and I’d love to hear it again but with Stevie or Mick instead or all of them arguing, ugh, that would be cruel and awful.
- We’ve been watching Death in Paradise on Netflix, and it is the most wholesome thing this side of The Good Place, if you like murder mysteries and a fantastic classic reggae soundtrack.
