What’s new, pussycat?

14 Nov

So… here I was being good about posting for a minute but then… I went back to work. And got a second job. And California caught fire. Again. And I, once again, burrowed under my covers and hid.

Besides all of that, my Facebook got destroyed and that seems to have wiped my abilities to connect.

It was a lot. But I see that both Stewart and I are making moves to poke our heads out.

I’ll start?

I was thinking recently, as I drove to work, that I haven’t been motivated to watch any new TV seasons/series in a while. The only new show that I watched in the last year was Superman and Lois. But I used to get excited for all the new seasons/mid-season premieres and want to give everything a try. I’m not entirely sure what happened to make me lose all interest. I know that part of my depression is/was not being up to “new”, and thus I just binge The Simpsons, home improvement/house hunting shows, CSI (all of them), etc… Things I have seen so many times that there was no anxiety if I missed a few minutes or an episode.

What should I be watching? What has drawn you in? What are you excited for?

I tried the new CSI when it premiered and I think I will be able to manage that. But everyone around me is talking about how I have to watch this and be sure to watch that. Which, I don’t know… I feel pressured and that doesn’t work well for me.

I also haven’t seen many new movies since pre-covid times. We went to see Free Guy and Jungle Cruise and The Suicide Squad. But that’s it. I have Black Widow  and Wonder Woman ’84… I still haven’t watched them. I need to. I want to. But when I sit down to do it… Those binges I already mentioned look so much better. I was telling myself the other night that I need to watch a series I just picked up season 2 of on disk, before the new season starts soon. Maybe I will get around to it. It’s probably one of the ones Stewart has yelled at me about.

I bought a new book recently too. I stopped buying a lot of books for a while because I don’t read as much as I should. Which I can’t decide if it’s a side effect of the depression now or just being tired. Because I get a page or two in and BAM! the yawns start. And it’s not the book. I just picked up Val Kilmer’s autobiography- it’s really interesting. But… a page or two and I’m too tired to keep going. It sucks.

So I guess the whole point of this post is just to ask all of you- what are you reading, watching, enjoying? with the goal of maybe being inspired, finally, to get back into something.
