    been spending more money than i should since i got my "stimulus" check. besides the two pedals i bought, i also bought three records today (two by Surachai, and Broadcast's "Tender Buttons", which i've been meaning to grab for years), ordered 50 holographic stickers of my everson poe logo, and bought sarah a really cute print as an early v-day present. should definitely try to slow down on spending...

    anyway, here's the julia pedal i got, and i am in love with it (the hoof reaper hasn't come yet)

    watched a bunch of rifftrax tonight (four election-oriented shorts from the 50s-70s & the movie "blood theatre") and then, for some reason, "the masque of the red death" which was probably a bad idea. ended up having four cocktails, but no pizza (we ordered japanese food). and now it's 1:15am and i'm watching lucifer because i don't think i'm gonna be able to sleep.
    Posting this here (also for my own use)

    In NY (I'm not sure if throughout the country too) they're allowing teachers to get the vaccine now. My husband has his scheduled in February. One of our good teacher friends just got hers. She wrote about it on Facebook, "I've never cried while getting a shot before. Not afraid of needles. Finally feels like there's a light at the end of the tunnel."

    That hit me. I think I'm going to cry too.

    i have both of drew's novels. The Hike is amazing. it's like a video game in book form. i don't know if i've ever read anything that quickly in my life because it was just so exciting. haven't read The Postmortal yet but i'm excited to do so. also need to find the episode of Chopped that he's on.

    He writes books? I'm going to have to find me some books..

    Also I am officially 100% vaccinated, had my second shot today. Pfizer so I don't have to worry about that Moderna allergic reaction.

    don't pay too close attention to the cover of "the hike" because it basically spoils the whole book

    As much as normal can be...I'm going to be wearing a mask for awhile.

    Luckily ebook covers are remarkably hard to see.

    I'm so jealous. I feel like I'm going to be rotting away in quarantine until August waiting for a vaccine.

    I should say that it's because of work and not because I have any special connections.

    The flip side of that is that the only reason I was moved forward so quickly is the number of people who decided not to get the vaccine.
    :/

    Yah, my aunt works at an ALF, and she turned down her vaccine because she's a ridiculous religious idiot. (aunt by marriage)
    I really wanted to leap through the phone with my rage when I heard that. And at the end of it, part of me just wanted to say, "I'll take your fucking precious vaccine you worthless idiot."

    Propriety towards elders dictates otherwise.
    And I just know she'd never listen. Religion has made her deaf.

    I really enjoyed Postmortal, maybe more in concept than execution. Magary's episode of Chopped is hilarious if you're familiar with him. Seems like it's almost impossible to find online though.
