This is under a cut not so much because of spoilers, but because it discusses eating brains, which some people might not particularly want to read about.

tw for cannibalism but light on spoilers )

Unrelated to the above, but i've watched the first 3 episodes of the new Poldark series, and...eeeeh. Well acted, brautiful scenery, interesting topics, but while I enjoyed the first episode, I was mostly bored by the second and third. I only care at all about Demelza and Verity (and that's at least partly because of my fondness for Eleanor Tomlinson and Ruby Bentall), and am not overly fond of where things seem to be going with either character. Mostly I expected a lot of misery and crushed dreams for both. I'm not sure I'll watch more because I read some spoilers for the books that....did not make me look forward to future plot developments.

I'm now going to go off and feel a bit awkward about the iZombie part of this post.

What are you currently reading

Currently in between.

What did you recently finish reading?

Star Wars: A New Dawn by John Jackson Miller. finished reading this, and it remained pretty enjoyable throughout. I'd like it if they did more rebels prequel books, particularly of Hera and Kanan acquiring Zeb and Sabine.

Vixen in Velvet by Loretta Chase. Third book in a series (I haven't read the first two) about three sisters who are French dressmakers and marry incredibly rich British lords. Entertaining, like most Loretta Chase, but the concept stretched believability a bit much for me, even for a Window Dressing historical Romance.

Cloche and Dagger and Death of a Mad Hatter by Jenn McKinlay. First two books in a mystery series about two cousins who run a hat shop. Cousin A became internet-famous thanks to a youtube video in which she's flinging handfuls of anniversary cake at her supposedly-single boyfriend. Depending on who you ask, she's either "a total nutter' (used frequently in the books by characters who have seen the video, but not a view supported by the narrative) or a feminist icon and symbol for women who discover they're dating cheating louses. Cousin B is the creative, free spirited cousin prone to leaving for weeks on end without a word to buy rare feathers, or spending her entire savings on crystals, both to be used in hats. People keep dying while wearing their hats, but more people keep buying them. More overtly humorous than a lot of the mysteries I've been reading lately, and very fun.

Tonari no Seki-kun vol 1-2 by Takuma Morishige. Manga that the anime I watched last year is based on. Studious girl has a neighbor in class who is always bringing absurdly complicated and involving things to do instead of paying attention in class. She tries to ignore him, but keeps getting caught up in his antics. Pretty much like watching the anime. (Which is not a bad thing.)

What do you think you'll read next?

I should probably devote the time I'd normally spend reading on RW for the next few weeks. (no Dear Author letter yet, only prompt in the signup is a brief one for a fandom I'm not familiar with. Insert panicky Megan.)

so i've been trying and failing for a couple of days to motivate myself to go harass my doctor's office in person about my prescription

today i decided to call them again. played phone tag before, this time i was just like whatever if it needs an appointment let's make an appointment, i know i can motivate myself to leave the house for appointments and i shouldn't have to pay for this but i would rather pay the co-pay than the ongoing stress and worry at this point

so i learned that it would have been rather difficult to find the office in person to bother, as they had moved--which i knew, the doctor told me they were moving to the fourth floor the last time i went in--but it turns out the fourth floor of another building.

So, the Empire season finale happened. Not really unpredictable, in that a lot of it was things fans hoped for/theorized about a lot, but still quite a ride.


The purple lipstick was strong this week.

spoilery )

I also watched the pilot of CW's iZombie and enjoyed it. it's getting a lot of Veronica Mars comparisons, and...well, yeah, pretty much the only way to make it more literally "zombie!Veronica Mars" would be to replace Rose McIver with Kristen Bell and put the characters in hight school.
