1. I was at work from 9am to after 2am, but inventory is over and I don't have to think about it for another six months. Also unless I get an emergency call or something tomorrow morning, I'm planning on only going in for a few hours in the afternoon to do my ordering and anything else that urgently needs to get done.

2. I walked in to see Chloe being super cute on the couch.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Two years as Top Dog and this is all Trumble has to show for it. Sharing a bed with Bananaby Joyce and pretending that there isn't really a certain third person in the marriage

What's the point of all those brains and eloquence when at heart Trumble is little more than a spineless blobfish who dreams of being an Irukandji when he grows up just like his 'joined at the hip' best mate Donald who really is the most toxic blob on the planet

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.

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!

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.

1. It's my day off tomorrow, but I can't sleep in because I have to go to Gardena to renew my forklift license and the class starts at nine. :( But at least traffic is going the opposite direction, so it should only take half an hour-ish to get there rather than an hour or more if I were coming the other way, and the class should only be a couple hours and then I have the rest of the day free.

2. Carla is going back to the midwest to visit her folks for a week and went to See's Candy today to get them some candy, and got me a bag of Scotchmallows, too. :D

3. Tonight's Rick and Morty was so good! I loved all the world building going on and am super excited about spoilers )

4. Such a pretty kitty.

1. I ended up having to go in to work early this morning, but at least it wasn't super urgent so I was still able to sit and have a bite to eat before I left.

2. We had strawberries and whipped cream for dessert tonight. Yum!

3. We were so close to getting a shot of all three kitties on the shelves (Molly where she is here, and Chloe and Jasper on the shelf below), but sadly they moved when Carla got up with her camera. But she did get this cute shot of Molly and Chloe together.

[personal profile] izmeina
Izzie has been missing in Dreamwidth Land for so so long lately. Was almost time to send out a search party.
Both Daisy and Dudley have gone back home so slowly getting back to the usual routine. It was nice spending so much time over at Privet Drive but it all got too much for this introverted serpent and needed to escape and get away from it all now and again.

Aside from Dursleyish dramas, been distracted by the nightmare across the pond. It is like watching a train wreck and being unable to look away.
In fact, stalking and snarking the Donald on twitter was pretty much the only link to Cyberia over the last few months or so.
November is around the corner and it is time to get back in the habit of squiggling. The magic is gone. Totally uninspired lately and not even managing to do the usual 20 minutes here and there just dumping stuff from the green skull into the Pensieve. That could explain the current crazy distracted state of the serpent.
Too much stuff out there and no time to sort it all out and make sense of it all. So so needing to get back to to the rituals of squiggling just to preserve some semblance of serpent sanity.
Sensible sorts use cycling, walking or sport to let off steam. Then of course there’s art, music and other such creative activities. I guess it’s good to diversify. I have all those eggs in the word basket. Not so bad if I had not been neglecting it so much lately.

Maybe it is time to diversify. Doctor’s orders and all that but that is a tale for another day
As well as squiggling, also getting back into the routine of pottering around and doing stuff in the garden. The orange tree is having a second flush of flowers. That is the first time this has happened. Weather has been so weird in the last few years.

Was up in Kings Park today drooling over the wicked weeds. It is the height of the wildflower season here and for folks who cannot get out into the countryside, the botanical gardens at Kings Park are a perfect place to see them. The botanical gardens are well worthy of being on the bucket list of anyone who is nuts about weeds. Australia really does have so many amazing and interesting plants as well as cute and cuddly creatures.

The birds are squawking and the bees are buzzing. It is the most amazing time of year.
