Now we wait.
– people to give us prices and order things,
– wallpaper to be stripped and walls to be painted and carpets to be ripped out and floors to be put in…
in the meantime,
… we’re spending a lot of time doing little things.
I’m reading a few books. Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman reminds me of Busiek’s Astro City, Life in the Big City in novel form. Reimagined super heroes living among the normals. First person accounts of what it’s like to be a super-villain or be part of a super team. It feels like the right kind of reading while parked in a place I can’t really think.
I started reading the Gallow’s Thief by Bernard Cornwell but the language was a bit old-timey for my current brain.
And I’ve been devouring The Franklin Barbecue book and thinking a lot about barbecue and smoking things.
… but the rain. holy christ.
And I’m waiting for feedback on Book 2. It’s been awfully quiet out there but people are traveling and it’s a bigger book so I don’t expect people to get through it in an evening or maybe even a weekend so I have to sit patiently. Maybe it’s terrible. idk.
What should I be listening to? I need some new music and probably shouldn’t be listening to this radiohead album as much as I am but it sounds so nice.
… considering upgrading my DAC and portable music player, but I should go plant some potatoes instead.
