I took my shot a few days ago. I take a CGRP injector to help with my migraines. I think with the stress with Covid, weird weather and the stress of my house I'm just getting more pain days (like, two more). The CGRP meds seem to lesson after 25 days but my insurance will not let me have a new shot before 28 or 30 days. So I have a few days where it's a bit rough, but it's nothing like before! The CGRP seems to be working well for me. The only side effect I have is dehydration (which does lead to dry skin). I've cut down on my drinks that aren't water and upped my water intake. Also, I added more serums to my skin care regime and a light oil. It's all okay.
I totally bought the book above for the title. I didn't like it as much as I wished I had but the title was glorious. I think the book was more zany than I could handle. The rest of the books in the series have amusing titles as well, Since You're Leaving Anyways, Take Out The Trash and Our Red Heart Romance Is Making Me Blue.
I've started two new series. I'm on the hunt for new things since most of the shows I was watching on cable got canceled or ended (or on a break). So I gave in and watched some Hallmark mysteries. I. am. shook. They're pretty cute. My old roommate loved Hallmark movies but the ones where it's straight romance or Christmas series. I don't actually like those as they're too saccharine for me. The mysteries for the most part are cozy and cute but well done. The leading man is always cut out of the same cloth (tall, dark, pretty handsome) and the leading lady is wholesome and cute (or elegant depending on her job).
I've started this article by NPR. NPR's Decolonize Your Bookshelf: Your Bookshelf Might Be Part of The Problem. I think this falls into a topic that's come up a few times on social media in the book sphere. It's not really new but it does come up a few times a year it seems. I've been working on my bookshelf because it's mostly white women authors who write my favorite type of tropey genre. Nothing wrong with that type of book, but it's good to read other stuff too. I've been adding books and authors as they've popped up. My non-fiction science/history section is actually more diverse. Odd.
I saw that "Lady G: was trending on Twitter awhile ago. I'm not touching that with a ten foot pole. It would be shocking but then again.
I'm starting on American Predator about Israel Keyes. I'm aware of Keyes but not enough to talk about. He's a particular scary type of serial killer that was captured after kidnapping and murdering a young lady in Alaska. It's really horrific and I wouldn't suggest looking up the particulars unless you're prepared. The FBI isn't quite sure how many people he murdered, but the number tends to be listed as eleven. He committed other crimes (rapes and robbery). I could go on a rant about the backlog of rape kits and how some of these kits, once tested, showcase repeat offenders. I digress...
