Media consumption:

Reading: Fall or Dodge in Hell by Neal Stephenson. So far I think I liked the first half better than the second half. It had lots of callbacks to other Stephenson books to keep me interested. The part I’m in now is a bit of a biblical slog.

Listening: mostly Slate podcasts. Lexicon Valley being my favorite, but also political gabfest, trumpcast, what’s next, and the gist still going to the top of the feed. For fun, catching up on No One Can Know About This. as far as music goes, the boy has been really into Harry Nilsson, so I’ve been listening to him a lot. And Weird Al’s first album (also because of children).

Watching: nothing! Which is a little strange, but I’ve also been going to bed early. I did binge Futureman Season 2
