July TUSAL & ToT

Just when I thought I was back in a regular blogging-flow again, two pretty busy weekends (one with Felix' parents, sister and my dad - graduation day went smoothly, but didn't really feel that big since we've already been working for half a year now - the other with Felix' friend Frank). On the bright side - it's the first update I'm writing from my shiny new laptop! It's soooo fast compared to the old, semi-broken one, I'm totally loving it ^_^

So while I have another post almost ready to go (just need to finish a teeny-tiny bit first), let me start my latest catching-up-run with two more than overdue SALs. The first one is easy as usual - witness my mighty TUSAL jar (lol):



For Ton of Tiny, I finished te July installment of Magical's ornaments of the month. I really like this one, it reminds me of poinsettas and trees of life ^_^


I also worked more on Dark Force and finished page 4 (and a bit more, which I'm saving for my almost-ready post). Page 5 is only two columns, so I haven't taken it out of the snap for a full picture yet, but I will soon ^_^


I also had a bit of prgress gaming and reading: gamingwise, I finished Sound Shapes, a music-centered game where one of the main tasks (besides some jump 'n run action) is rebuilding melodies and rhythmns by listening, and I picked up a really old GameBoy Colour Game, a Jump 'n Run to the Papyrus-cartoon that I never finished when I was younger, and played right through it so I can finally put it away.
Readinwise, I finished The Martian - I recently saw a trailer for the movie version and that reminded me of how strongly Carla had recommended the book, so I picked it up on my kindle and read the whole thing in less than two weeks, which is really fast given my current schedule and reading speed. I loved it, it was hilarious, while still being technically acurate. I might even read the whole thing again sometime, or listen to the audio book of which I have heard great things as well ^_^

    I have given The Martian to every geeky person I know, I really ought to read it myself.

    1. I do, I greatly do :) The old one was five years old and got some serious damage at one point (though we're not totally sure what happened), so the new one is a real treat to use!

      I think those ornaments have improved my backstitching a ton - there's so much on them, but it all looks so pretty too!

    1. Maybe a bit too busy for my taste, I'd rather all those events were spread out more evenly over the year :D
