so on the job-hunt front so far nothing new... and sadly it gets depressing with how many of those firms don't even say that they dont need you (luckily most here do)

but on completely unrelated and better news: this cat finally got a healthy net connection! you do not know how much you need the net for the simplest things these days, until you dont really have the option. i am one of the fortunate enough to have a mobile contract where unlimited net is included- but after 2gb they cut it down to like 125bits a min and you have no imagination of how SLOW that is, it takes forever to load just one picture- this is also the reason i am behind on [community profile] hp_podfic_fest, but i will listen to the ones i didnt yet get around to.
edit: obviously i dont complain about time without net when i choose to be off the net- but for job search and application sending net is kinda the only way these days at least here..

on super unrelated news (because i am trying to make that a thing apparently)
thanks so much for lovely post-cards to [personal profile] themightyflynn, who sent me an adorable card from australia
and to [personal profile] enchanted_jae who sent me a very nice card from duluth- which fits perfectly in my ocean themed entry!!! thank you <3

and finally on different unrelated news: my muse is broken somehow, and i seem unable to fix her, which really is starting to get me broken too *headdesks*

but not all is doom and gloom so i shall go for the happy vipe and wish you a good time!



It's good to be home. :)

Hi!!!!!! Finally! Back from my vacations at last. A bit latter than I originally intended; the airport in Panama didn't have power for over six hours when I was supposed to come back and a lot of flights got delayed and/or cancelled including mine. I had never truly appreciated how nice and cold airports are. Jeez it was hot!

But I survived my family vacations. No small feat this time since it actually included a hurricane. I'm so sorry if I worried you about this, I did keep in touch with LQ and Birds, and Eidheann, and best co-mods Grace & Cissa and they would have totally updated you if there was something to update. It was rather very stressful until the last day when it was really scary and then it was very busy doing all the things. Thankfully, I know we were extremely lucky in our foolishness. But! Hogwarts, and Hogsmeade, and Diagon Alley were wonderful, but it was crazy, crazy, crazy. ^^

Already running to catch up with life and work and fandom. I was supposed to have a buffer day after coming back but that wasn't possible and in fact it turns out I have to travel this Monday again for work which I was not expecting. It's holiday here, but not in the rest of my country and I totally missed that when I accepted and now, well, traveling in a couple of days and missing a day off. Boo!

I'm going to do my best to try and catch up. I'd throw a 'YAY HOME' but oh my god, I rather feel I need vacations from my vacations and I'm so not ready to be back. :O

But in better news, my nipples are on top of their form so I have that going for me. LOL

I missed you so much! ♥ ♥ ♥

Sunday night, I finished reading Murder Go Round by Carol J Perry. It's part of her "Witch City" mystery series, featuring reluctant scryer Maralee "Lee" Barrett.

Lee's Aunt Ibby convinces her to go to a storage auction, and they end up bidding on and winning the contents of a locker. Among the items are a samovar that Ibby spotted and coveted, some old doll dresses, a carved carousel horse, a Cuckoo clock, and some nesting dolls. Shortly after their win, Lee and her boyfriend Pete take the horse to a local man to restore. That evening, the man's shop is broken into, Lee's horse is broken apart, and a man has been murdered outside of the shop.

Lee can't help but think the murder is related to the contents of the storage locker, but police officer Pete isn't so sure. Aided by her aunt, her cat, her best friend, and her visions, Lee begins putting the pieces together, and what she finds is that the current crime may have ties to a bloody part of Russia's history.

This was a great story. There was so much going on, and I loved how all the clues added up, one leading to another, until the mystery was solved. For once, the identity of the killer was fairly obvious throughout the book, but there was still the matter of proving it and discovering the reasons behind it.

Favorite line: "Books and magazines. Papers and ink. You love the printed word. Kindles and Nooks have their place, but they don't have that smell."

Enjoyable! Five stars:

So I think I mentioned this in one of my previous Potterversecon posts, but just in case I didn't, they had Weasley Clocks!

Since they proved very popular at the con, they sold out fast, so I ordered one to be mailed to me and it's arrived! Eeee!

Slytherin Weasley Clock! )
Isn't it gorgeous? <3
