WATCHING: Season 3 of Hannibal. I’m a little embarrassed how fast I am bingeing this show.
READING: A three year backlog of Gordon White’s blog: The Archonology Series. Interesting alt-history.
CURRENT STATUS: I’ve been going full tilt since 7 AM, it’s now 7 PM and I am finally sitting down to relax. December really is the busiest month of the year.
WATCHING: I’m up to season 2 of Hannibal and I plan on going full comatose in front of a screen for the next couple hours.
READING: Nothing. I have not had time lately, and by the time I do I’m too tired to really get into anything. Clearly a sign that I need to slow down. (New Year’s resolution unlocked!)
CURRENT STATUS: Trying to juggle working with 7 clients this week. Seven! Oh, and I have over 70 essays to grade as well. If you need me I’ll be main-lining coffee in the corner over here.
READING: American Exorcism in this month’s The Atlantic. Because nothing says Christmas season like a good ‘ol demonic possession.

READING: Just downloaded Cabin at the End of the World and excited to start it.
