So, for the first half of the week, not too much to report here on my end. After having 4 days off last week (woohoo), I went back and worked the next five days, the last two being the second shift. I had one day off, which I mostly spent sleeping, and then it was back to work. Work is the same old same old, and I even signed up to pick up a few extra shifts in April and May. Most of them will hopefully not be overtime, but if they are, hey, more money isn’t a bad thing? Pour one out for me if that ends up being the case though!
In super mundane news, I switched my car insurance. I previously had Allstate, which was, well, cheap. I decided a change was in order when they started calling me every three days asking to come in for a life insurance quote. Bitch, I can barely afford car insurance, what makes them think I can afford life insurance. Plus, I have one through my work, should the worst happen. Allstate, like a bad ex, won’t stop calling and leaving voicemails, and I hate managing my voicemails. I literally pay Verizon a little extra for them to transcribe them for me, so I don’t have to listen to them, and only delete them when my mailbox is full. When it comes to deleting time, it comes with a rolling of the eyes and a hefty sigh. The point is, anything that makes my mailbox fill up faster for shit I’m clearly not interested in pisses me off. So, when my policy was due, I told them we were breaking up, and switched to Root. I’ll be doing the same when my Renter’s Insurance comes due for renewal as well.
Apparently, breaking up with your car insurance, even when you immediately switch to someone else, beams a “No Car Insurance” signal in the sky like the Bat Signal. My mailbox has become inundated with car insurance ads. Every day there is a new one, and it goes straight to the trash.
I guess that’s the most exciting thing to happen to me lately. I’ve hit boring married life pretty early on, but I’m okay with this.
What Am I Watching/Listening To While I Do Crafty Things?
In high school, I was known for being the biggest weeb of the weebkins. If there was an anime topic or question, I was one of the one they asked. This reputation persists to current day, even though I barely watch anime anymore. What’s this about a hot new anime? Seriously, the only new shows I’ve watched in the past year are Goblin Slayer, That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime which I gave up on at episode 20-something (Should I go back? Someone please tell me!) and The Promised Neverland. So, chances are I know nothing of which you speak.
I do have a lot of classic anime under my belt though! Yet, somehow, I’ve never seen Sailor Moon. When it was airing, I was in grade school and watched very little TV. Plus, I think it was on at a time we couldn’t watch it reliably. This pillar of weebdom was just not in my life.
I decided to finally watch Sailor Moon and I’m on episode 5 or 6. It’s very simple and formulaic so far but I really like it? It’s a show about a girl who likes to eat, sleep, cry and goof off, yet has to put on her big girl pants to be Sailor Moon. As an adult, I really relate to that hard. My husband patiently tolerates us watching an episode every night…although I think he may secretly like it too?
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Season 1
I tried to watch Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure back when season 1 was airing. I got through part 1 and just kinda dropped it. Severe health issues, and I just thought it was kinda dumb? Cue 2020, where I love dumb. There’s now a bunch of seasons, and there’s a dub. The dub is actually what got me back into it. It’s full of these corny british accents with super campy dialogue that I really love. I’m still in part 1, but it’s far less painful than the first time around? I’m even enjoying it?
Robert E. O. Speedwagon is best boy.
Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law
This is another show I tried to watch when I was 21. I was young and innocent, and most of the jokes went over my head. Now that I’m almost 30, they’re not going over my head anymore. This show holds up surprisingly well. Was Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law surprisingly ahead of its time with it’s humor? Or have we changed so little as a society that it makes most of it still very relevant? Up to you!
Right now, I’m watching an episode a day, because there’s not a whole lot of it, and I want to stretch it out as long as I can.
Well that’s it for this week. We’ll see if future Janette has anything to talk about next week. (Note from future Janette while editing this: Oh my, I miss normal boring married life.)
