Summer has hit hard.
- Loving the heat. LOVING IT.
- I can now share the full title of the next release: Entanglement! wlw, sf, kind of like Casablanca in space with quantum data storage. Sort of. I had fun writing this one.
- My company has threatened us with an office reopening. I would genuinely enjoy seeing my colleagues in person again for a few days but I don’t think I could do full weeks in the office ever again. Lord no. I want to work from home for the majority of the week if possible. Switzerland allows a maximum of two days a week WFH normally, plus this is a phase-in period for mitigating spread. I’m hopeful I can continue lounging around in shorts, a t-shirt and bare feet for the rest of the summer. I haven’t touched my work clothes since late winter 2020 which is crazy to me.
- VACCINATED, BABY, YEAH.
- Watched: Bo Burnham’s Inside. Hilarious, insightful, relatable.
Started BoJack Horseman, just finished s3, and shit, they don’t hold back!
Too Hot to Handle season 2 dropped and my GOD some of the people on this show are total pricks. The hypocrisy on display by one person in particular is breathtaking and this season’s Harry is so unlikeable that I’m in awe. Plus I don’t see how he’s good-looking. Like, genuinely, I don’t get it. Can’t wait for the second part of the season to drop XD
- Read: very little. Hm.
- Writing: EDITS. I started off the month picking at the older stuff. It’s a goal to finish one piece by the end of the year; I’m still on track for that. But then edits came in and I’m now working through those for Entanglement.
- Music: Comeback has been on repeat, plus Daði Freyr (of Eurovision fame): Think About Things, Hvað með það, and his cover of Arcade are great. Marina has released an album which has been a treat lyrically and a throwback to FROOT and Electra Heart musically. Lady Gaga has re-released her Born This Way album but had six artists cover six of the tracks: I loved Kylie Minogue’s Marry The Night and Years & Years’ Edge of Glory (obviously). Then somehow the comfort zone of 70s rock and blissful guitar solos swung back into force.
