sareini: (cat)
I woke up this morning to find Callie licking my closed eyes. Apparently my role in life now is to be a salt lick for a kitten. It's the hay fever, of course; now that it's May and the weather is grudgingly admitting that it's springtime the pollens are really getting started, and of course I was already allergic to all of them even before the news of "super pollens" (pollens that have mixed with diesel fuels to be extra sticky in the mucous membranes) hit last week. Already my nose is getting runnier, my eyes more sore and prone to sticking closed in the morning (cat licks aside) and most annoyingly, the roof of my mouth itches more and more of the time. At least my life as it currently is minimises my contact with random free-floating pollen in the outside world.

In other news, I managed to be relatively productive around the house today. Did some small amount of tidying, typed up and published a review for the movie blog (The Void, in case you were wondering) and got as far as I currently can with the Shawl of Secrets. I'm now at the point where I have to buy the missing ball of yarn before I can continue, and depending on how things go on Thursday (another vet visit for Lily) will determine whether I can get that this week or at the end of the month. Still, it's a good thing it's not able to distract me right now, as I still have to finish that cardigan for my niece.

I also watched a couple of episodes of Criminal Minds, bringing me to just past the halfway mark for Season 11. I am determined to be caught up before Season 13 starts. I'm glad that they've wrapped up the whole "darknet hitman network" storyline, because it was one of those plots that was just a little too "made for TV". Especially the "Miss .45" hitwoman, who was not so much a hitwoman as she was a plain old serial killer. She's a hitwoman who kills her clients instead of the targets she's being paid for...
and this leads to no professional blowback whatsoever? No problems with other hitmen going, "Hey, this is kind of bad for business, you killing the clients." Or maybe I'm overthinking things. It's not like I have intimate knowledge of how professional hitmen operate; maybe they're fine with it. The verbal chess game she and Reid played was pretty good though.
