1. I actually slept in until ten, which is not something that usually happens lately even if I have the opportunity.

2. I had a nice relaxing day and didn't go anywhere or do much of anything.

3. Cooler weather means cats in the bed.

I harvested two of the candy roaster squash today -- on was 8lb and the other was 13.5lb.

Someone stole the third one of the garden sometime in the last week -- so I have a terrible neighbor, somewhere.

The table gold acorn squash are progressing well. I might harvest one of those soon as well.

Summary: Sickly Kishida Jun has the ability to see ghosts, but in his opinion, it's a stupid power and nothing good ever comes of it. Considering the number of grisly situations he seems to find himself in after the ghost of his childhood friend Hayakawa Ryoko starts following him around, he may have a point.

Chapter Summary: In chapter 19, strange things start happening after Kishida and Koizumi find themselves near a tunnel where a bus full of students died in a fire. In chapter 20, the occult club finds themselves trapped on a farm, surrounded by pigs who seem to have developed a taste for human flesh.



Chapter 19: The Haunted Tunnel
Chapter 20: Day of the Pig

And this brings us to the end of volume 3, so here's a full volume download for those who want it.

Departure

I've never left a job before. I spent my 20s as a contract researcher, and when my project came to an end, I just... didn't work in that lab any more. So I didn't know how to give notice, how to do the tax paperwork, it was all completely new to me. Also, the people I've been working closely with for the past eight years were all actually sad to see me go and wanted to mark the rite of passage. That was new to me too, in a mostly touching but slightly bittersweet way.

last days )

I started my new job the following Monday. I need to work out how much I should talk about that in detail here; for one thing it's looking to involve somewhat more blogging and social media presence as my professional persona than the old job did. Also I am still adjusting to living in Cambridge full time, which is probably another post, and I'm up to my eyes preparing for the High Holy Days beginning on Wednesday, so I am going to stick with posting about leaving rather than about arriving for now.

Even sillier than meerkats

You have all seen this, haven't you? If not, then enjoy. My pleasure.


And some things get better - clause 28 gone the way of the dodo.

1. Day off tomorrow! Tuesday is the dreaded twice-yearly inventory, and I will likely be at work for like eighteen hours or something ridiculous like that, so I am going to enjoy my day of rest tomorrow.

2. I got some really good cuddle time with Jasper today. Poor baby misses Carla so much. :( But I'm loving the cuddle time.

3. Despite some recent hecticness, things are actually going really well at work right now.

4. I love this pic of Molly.

We've been on holiday, we came home on Friday and have had a weekend at home before work and normal life resume on Monday. It's been really nice.

I have ploughed through a stonking great to-do list of All The Things which I didn't have the time or the energy to do before we went away. I'm not going to list them all because (a) boring for me to type out and (b) boring for you to read, but I would just like everyone to know that I have ... been to the gym ...AND... mopped the kitchen floor.

Amazement. Shock and Awe.

1. I got to sleep in and go to work at my scheduled time and didn't have anyone calling or texting me in the morning about urgent stuff. (Hopefully can replicate that again tomorrow.)

2. One of the samplings we have at work this weekend is ramen and that made me want ramen for dinner, so I bougt some and made it and it was delicious.

3. Our Apple TV has been malfunctioning even more than usual lately, but we didn't want to buy a new one just yet considering they were going to be releasing a new version soon. Well, they finally officially announced it and we have ordered it and it will be ours in a few weeks.

4. My cats are just so cute I can't stand it.

I went with [personal profile] greenygal to Small Press Expo today. [profile] ipleasance was supposed to come put came up sick; [personal profile] greenygal got her hardcopies of Check Please!.

There was, as always, a lot of incredible talent on display! The stand-out for me was the art forReturn of the Dapper Men (available from TopShelf)-- I talked to the artist Janet Lee brief, and looked a some pages of artwork she had brought. It's decoupage!

Also, I picked up an A to Z minicomic of dinosaurs. It was adorable, and I wound up talking to the artist about opposite birds. There weren't nearly enough dinosaur or science books this year, in my opinion, but I admit it's a niche interest.

When we were gearing up to leave, we chatted with a librarian from NY (city or state, I don't know) about some of the middle-readers we'd seen. She was there on a press pass, so I hope she can get a good story and write-ups for some of the more interesting books into the library trade publications. There are a lot of really interesting and diverse works out there that need more exposure.

1. Mario Odyssey looks so great. Every new preview I see makes me want to play it even more. Only a month and a half left till it's out!

2. Miraculously, the sprouts I had in the fridge from a couple weeks ago were still good, so I made a tasty chicken sandwich tonight for dinner.

3. Hopefully I can sleep in tomorrow? We'll see if it happens, but theoretically it's a go.

4. An employee is transferring to another store and today was his last day, so there was pizza, and since I was the one who ordered it, I got from Ciccero's, which is the best, and I got (among other things) their BBQ chicken pizza, which is so good. *_*

5. With Carla gone, Jasper is wanting more attention from me the past couple days. He has been sleeping on my desk a lot when I'm at the computer, and tonight I even got to cuddle with him for a while!

1. Kinda bummed I didn't get more done today, especially translating-wise, but I actually got a fair bit of random stuff done around the house, and anyway after yesterday I just needed a day to really relax, and I had one, so yay.

2. It's been so chilly the last few nights I've been using my heavy blanket again.

3. I had some veggies I needed to use up, so I got a steak down from the freezer and made some instant mashed potatoes and had a nice dinner, and there was enough leftovers to put together two more meals, which are now in tupperwares for easy eating over the next few days.

4. Nothing brings kitties together like stalking a bug.

Weekly Reading

What are you currently reading?
Eh, same as last week: Meddling Kids and Satan: A Biography. It's been a really busy week, so I haven't made much progress on either (I think I'm at 10% and 15%, respectively).

What did you recently finish reading?
See above, re: busy week. I did read the most recent volume of Silver Spoon, though. I guess it's on a fairly erratic schedule these days, but it continues to be really cute, so I'll continue to read a volume whenever one comes out. (And thankfully it's easy enough to pick up after a long time, even if I've forgotten what's going on.)

What do you think you'll read next?
No idea. I really should just concentrate on those two books, but I also want to read some more manga or comics, maybe.

1. I am exhausted. Was at work over thirteen hours today and pretty much going non-stop the entire time, but I have tomorrow off and only a couple small things I need to do, so I am going to relax and enjoy staying home.

2. There's a fair amount of leftovers in the fridge right now, so I was able to just pop something in the microwave and didn't have to cook dinner.

3. I love this sweetie Chloe.

1. The cats don't usually sleep in the bed with us because there's not much room, but this morning I woke up to find both Jasper and Chloe in bed with me. :D

2. Carla had a safe and uneventful flight.

3. It's actually quite chilly tonight. I'm enjoying it! (Though if I weren't going to bed in a few minutes, I'd be tempted to put on a sweater.)

4. I finished up the one-shot that goes with Tera Girl, so hopefully we can get that posted sometime soon and then that will be one more project completed and off my list of things to juggle!

5. Jasper!

citrine_too: SGA Atlantis Cityscape w/text 'City on the Edge of Forever' (Stargate Atlantis)

 (with time outs for things like laundry and dinner and walking the dog and work,) and I have finally reached the episode 'Sunday'.

In case anyone has forgotten, cause it's been so long...Spoilers! For an almost ten year old tv show. Yeah. )but it doesn't make it any less of a gut-wrencher.

I laughed at myself when I realized just how studiously I was avoiding it. "How sad could it have been, really?" (she said with time-induced amnesia,) and oh, it was sad, maybe more sad to me now that I'm older and I've actually suffered losses that weren't even on the horizon back then when I first watched it, and my eyes are all wet and I miss the character and I hate the writers all over again.

You may now laugh at me, internet.

1. I was super tired this afternoon and took a nap. I actually felt refreshed and more awake afterwards, which was nice.

2. I took Carla to the airport tonight and now I have the bed to myself for a whole week, woohoo! :D

3. Cutie Molly.
