Writing, Reading and Sensating....
Welcome to the New Year (Observed). We're hit the year that's 40 years beyond my high school graduation, 30 away from a certain online sequel to a canceled TV show (note how thanatos_kalos and I have been totally scrubbed:P Also, this), and dead-on for a certain apocalyptic Billy Joel song that seems to have timed the Dystopia just about right:

Like Christmas 2016 (Observed), Eleanor worked an ordinary Monday.  Also like a week ago, I worked as well- just not as much. Today's task was drafting additional documents, due Wednesday, for a case where my first effort from the middle of last week earned me the "homicide by pen" accolade from the client.  Today's were just as snarky- I cited one of my opponent's attributions "as he sneers in the previous paragraph"- and were soundtracked by assorted reports from Buffalo Bills Locker Cleanout Day, where the most dysfunctional team in all of sports got to tell the media why shit like this wasn't ALL that bad:

Sigh. At least pitchers and catchers report in just a few weeks.


Now home, I'm continuing to read a mystery from yet another writer from my high school. Lara is a little older than the cohort I knew at the time, but this, her first novel, is loosely based on her own experiences (other than presumably the crime) -

I've had a couple of nitpicks- for one thing, it's LAWN Guyland- but am enjoying it overall.

Then, when I leave here for cardio shortly, my accompaniment will be the early first series of Sense8- the scifi piece by the Wachowskis and JMS.  The latter had a lot of influence on our scripting of 2047, so in a sense (heh), we come full circle to 30 years from now. I love the writing and characters so far; it's a little too violent at times and dark at more times to share with the missus, but I should be through the season and into last week's Christmas episode before long.

Well, best to get the bad Feels out of the way early so maybe they can be picked up with all the 2016 trash ::hugs::

::hugs back:: They're unlikely to go away at all at this point, but thanks. :)
