What are you currently reading?
I actually made progress on The Mayor of Castro Street this week! I read two chapters, which brings me to almost halfway through.

I also read the first chapter of The Invisible Library and it's really good so far, but then I just haven't had a chance (or haven't made time) to read any more...

I have also technically started More All-of-a-Kind Family, but haven't actually read any of it yet.

What did you recently finish reading?
Well, I read the first two All-of-a-Kind Family books and they're so good! I'm so glad I happened across them and decided to give them a reread.

What do you think you'll read next?
Really just those books in progress!

1. Today I was good at my job and that felt good.

2. I am making roasted stuffed peppers right now and they are making my kitchen fragrant.

3. I am rich in friends, and there are a lot of people whom I love, and I am fiercely grateful for this, even when my heart aches because some of those beloveds are suffering.

4. The implausible chartreuse of early spring's first leaves, which I adore, every year.

5. The fact that even when life is not easy, I can feel in my bones that I am in a better place than I was a year ago.

I heard Uncle John's Band by the Grateful Dead on the radio today, so I feel this is a good time to inform the world that it was only a couple years ago that I realized the lyrics must be "Come hear Uncle John's Band". Before that moment, from the time I was a very wee!Lanna, I had assumed it was "Come here, Uncle John's Band". This is a rare case where I actually heard the word correctly, but got punctuation and, y'know, homophones wrong. :P

I would have included this in yesterday's reading post had the email announcement arrived yesterday rather than today, but. The 2017 SYNC summer has begun! For those of you unfamiliar with this, it's a free summer YA/teen audiobook program from AudioFile Magazine; two free audiobooks, one new and one older, are put up for download every week for 16 weeks. You need the (free) Overdrive app to download, and there's a link on the SYNC page if you don't have it (it's commonly used by libraries for their audiobook downloads, so you might have it already). There's no DRM on the files, so there's no expiration - they're just mp3 files.

I don't download every week's selections, but over the past several years I've listened to quite a few. (In fact, this is how I first read The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater.) This week's selections, available until 5/4, are The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich, about which I only know what Goodreads says, that it's a psychological thriller told in epistolary format, and The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, which is a novella I've read before but may download anyway for the audio experience.

You can sign up for the mailing list that sends alerts about the books at http://www.audiobooksync.com/, and I think when you download it might put you on the list automatically (though you can easily unsubscribe).

I wanted to make a post about how I was doing at my new job, and then I remembered that today at 5pm a guy from IT told us not to turn off our computers today because of an important update, and today at 6pm I left work and of course turned off my computer just like I always do. *facepalm* Great job, self. Have fun tomorrow morning.

Overall it's going well though. I think. It seems like every few days one of my bosses tells me of a silly mistake that I can't believe I made and reminds me not to do it again and it's very embarrassing. Fortunately triple redundancy is pretty much built into every step of the process, but still.

The people are nice though, I'm getting used to the hours, and I'm not bored yet. (I will eventually, but my contract only lasts until July anyway, and I'll start sending job applications again in May. Not looking forward to it.)

More quick Critical Role episode notes! Over 6k words, oops. Not cleaned up and with very rough time stamps, mostly taken while watching, and I wanted to edit them a bit but then I'd probably never get around to posting.

Why this piece is awesome: This work does a great job depicting these three pilots as they would look as young adults. I'm particularly fond of Wufei and his no-nonsense attitude. And the colouring is just lovely.
