State of me
Well. Good thing I ordered a new iPad last week. Because, my current one went grey screen of death, late last evening as I was settling to read fic at AO3. Just like that. Dead. I hate that. Hate it so much. I tried resetting, I see the apple but for a short second. Restoring fails. It is still on Apple Care. So I set up a box query to ship it for repairs. My new iPad might be here in about 9 days. The one going to repairs, who knows. Still. The next few days are going to be strange. I'll have to get used to my MacBook again. First world problem and compared to what is going on in the world not really a catastrophe. I must have had ESP or something.Work stuff
My second employee is coming into work tomorrow. We will be the three of us and only the three of us in a really big space. I had a in person meeting schedule for tomorrow afternoon to work on a cartography process to set up the pick up service for the library. I found a collaborative white board we can use with Zoom so no need for an in person meeting. It is really simple to use Scumblr

I finished The Untamed. Wow. I still have that music in my head. I cried. Multiple times. Wen Nigh. I just don't have any words. I liked all arcs equally for different reasons.
Arc one: where you have no idea where things are going and you fall into the mother of all flashback where you get
the teenage period aka School part;The on the road part;We are hostages to an evil sect part;We escape, get lost again and become something else part;
That covers episodes 1 to 19 and it's a marvelous ride.
Arc two: you still are in the mother of all flashback and the Yiling Patriarch period. That arc broke my heart and made me laugh out loud at the same time. That covers episodes 10 to 32 and half of 33.
Arc three : you are back in the present and lets untangled this evil web together. I also cried and laughed. We got a couple of evil speech of evil. That covers episodes 33 to 50.
That open ended finale is fine with me. That's what fanfic is for.
I have no idea what to watch now. I'll have to see what looks good on Viki.Reading
I am reading again. I broke my slump. Hourra!ReadGet a Life, Chloe Brown.
Talia Hibbert. We are living in strange times. I couldn’t seem to be able to read a collateral damage from covid-19 stress. Talia Hibbert’s Chloe Brown has been the novel I came back to, after playing video games, binge watching The Untamed, knitting. I finally finished it, after skipping most of the sex scenes, not because they were bad, but because what i needed was more an emotional connexion not a physical one. I probably would have appreciated it a lot more if I read it at another time. Red and Chloe are adorable adults, sensible humans, emotionally aware both of them.Grumpy Fake Boyfriend.

. Jackie Lau. This got me out of my covid-19 reading funk. Funny yet there is a little bit of angst. Two grown up figuring out they are better together then alone. The fake boyfriend trope is not one of my favourite but it works here. Short, sweet, funny. Exactly what I needed. A solid 3 stars.Currently reading Mr. Hotshot CEO (Kwan Sisters #2)
, Jackie Lau. So far, it's keeping my interest.Knitting
Still knitting the same blanket. I'm into the 2/3 of the length.
