Things I Have Been Up To:
— I need to tally up how much I've read this summer, because it was... significant
— Cooking! Nesting in new apartment!
— Enjoying the perfect passive cooling I currently enjoy, I have not been hot in my apartment a single day this summer, no AC or fans needed!!
— Gameing: FTL, Cookie Clicker, and Kittens on my own, and Super Mario Sunshine, Persona 3, and Left 4 Dead with my partner
— Watching: Lost (almost done with S2, started the show this summer), Sopranos S2, Doctor Who S2, assorted sporadic anime that I'm blanking on rn bc we've has some issues w/ downloads/files and watched less than is typical for us
I'm relocating my polytheist/witchy stuff to @nessotropheion and giving that space a go! Posts will be... sparse, probably! But I'm trying.
