Time flies like a jet

Just noticed that it’s been a month since I posted here. I guess that means it’s time for another status-update post.

A little less avoidant than last time I posted here. Have made progress on various things; for example, finished the ebook of Mary Anne’s cookbook, and continue to asymptotically approach being done with the first Constellation Press ebook. (The contents are almost almost final, and trial runs of generating the ebook continue to go well. I’ve assigned ISBNs and nearly finished the backmatter, and I have a checklist of things to check on before submitting the Kindle version to Amazon. Soon soon soon.)

Had a good week in Chicago at the end of the year; am returning there for a couple days this coming weekend.

Kam and I finished watching For All Mankind season 1, and watched season 1 of Watchmen; both were excellent. We’ve been very unimpressed with the first few episodes of the current season of Dr Who, sadly. We’re looking forward to Picard in a couple of days.

I’ve been keeping up my pace with reading; am still averaging finishing with a book every day and a half or so (still including skimming some books and deciding to discard some others without reading them). Have been especially focused on Le Guin lately; just re-read The Dispossessed, and liked it a lot more than the first time I read it, in college.

Still doing piano practice with the SimplyPiano app for about 20 minutes a day most days; still enjoying that a great deal.

Have been playing the iOS version of Terraforming Mars pretty often.

I had a pretty stressful week-plus on Twitter and Facebook, so I’m currently taking a break from social media. Will probably return to it sometime in the next couple days, but right now it’s nice to have a bit of time off from it.

So I guess what that adds up to is that I’m continuing to do the usual stuff, and things are a little better than they were a month ago.
