I am currently comfortably set up on lilysea
's very nice armchair in her very
nice airconditioning avoiding the ridiculous 40C/104F+ weather Perth is in the middle of several days of. (I am also enjoying her company, but we are both in need of a lot of quiet resting time, which works out well. Reading her Facebook updates when she is JUST THERE is as surreal for me as I imagine this post will be for her when she checks her lj :D)
Yesterday I explored the local mall and sat in a library reading graphic novels. I read all of the first Hereville which was unobjectionable and light but didn't wow me, read enough of their Lovely Complex to realise I'd missed a few off the end reading online (now I want to buy it all but it's 17 volumes!), and enough 20th century Boys to decide it was good but way too slow and dark for me. Also saw that Girlfriends by Morinaga Milk comes as a 2 volume omnibus which I will
definitely have to buy, woo adorable lesbians.
Today I finished The Perilous Life of Jade Yeo
by Zen Cho and YOU ALL NEED TO GO READ IT NOW. It's the happy snarky light hearted romantic adventures of a twenty something year old Malaysian girl in London in the 1920s there is literally nothing not to like
. I got it for free but it now costs all of $3. And the author turned out to be quian
, who is an online friend of several of you guys, and has a story in Steampowered 2 though I haven't hit it yet in my reading.
Now to go back to "Finder" by Carlo Speed McNeil which is good but hasn't entirely grabbed me.
Oh! And I got all of Doctor Who season 5 for $50 yesterday. That would be good for any tv show but for Dr Who it's practically free. Also some nice cheap shorts, and earrings to attach to my-ear-friendly hooks, and a bunch of other stuff. Yay actually making it to Boxing Day-ish sales and having a wheelchair to move me around them.
