like a chicken with her head cut off

Unlike my mother, I never had to slaughter chickens in my childhood. Or adulthood, for that matter. But her eyewitness account is that they do indeed run around after you cut off their heads. So there's a reason for that expression.

It's applicable to how I feel right now: running around in what feels like an increasingly incomprehensible mission, wondering if I'm missing something absolutely essential to this whole life process... probably I just need a nice nap and someone to clean that kitchen for me.

Anyway! Shows are coming back to TV. I finally gave up on This Is Us. I enjoyed all five episodes I watched from season one, and I adored seeing Sterling K. Brown onscreen, but I just didn't think about the show when I didn't take deliberate steps to watch it. Instead I whiled away my time with frivolities like The Good Place--and apparently that started last night, so I think I'll go watch 2.01 before I get completely spoiled by the internet for any/all juicy details.

Inspired by Mark Watches, I've been rewatching Person of Interest season one. This is partly in the hope that I'll feel inspired to complete one of those unfinished fanfics I have on the computer. No show since then has brought that level of fannish inspiration. I literally haven't finished a new fanfic on my own in, er, three and a half years? Which, not so coincidentally, is two months after the departure of a character from PoI, so... hence the hope that watching the parts from before that exit will inspire me.
