Now a three day weekend is nice (even if I went into work for the tiniest amount yesterday), but it's put me all out of sorts. I have no idea what day it is any more! At the moment it seems to be a cross between a Monday and a Friday, not the best combination I'll agree (perhaps I'll just call it Fronday and have done).
Also, work this week seems like it's going to be kind of empty. I left at 4pm today and feel guilty about it, this feeling guilty is a habit I need to grow out of before I give myself a hernia or DVT or something.
Seeing as how I hadn't spent enough money yet today, what with only paying the rent this morning and all, I decided to splash out in a monetary fashion on Amazon. I bought myself:
Fruits Basket Volume 3, I am enjoying this series very much so far, but I hope that when I read this next volume I won't be either a) really miserable or b) off my face on caffiene. Reading Fruits Basket gives me bad karma, it would seem.
xxxHOLiC Volume 5 for the same old reasons, it's CLAMP, the art is lovely, Yuuko is my idol, for some reason Mokona makes me laugh, the social commentary inspires me in a scarily effective way and perhaps in this volume they'll explain what on Earth the connection is between Watanuki and Clow (because there has to be a connection, I can feel it in the very depths of my pancreas)
Tokyo Babylon Volume 7; finally the end is nigh! I've been waiting for so long to find out what happens. I've also managed to be spoiled on a lot of bits, but I still haven't found out what the bet is. I really really enjoy this series; I just find it really gripping
and I like to fangirl Subaru. There was nothing really 'oh my God!' worthy in the previous volume but there was plenty of 'oh my...' to keep me hanging on.
So it happens that I live in one of the cities in the English speaking world, in which manga is the most easily available. It would be easier and quicker to go out and buy these books myself, but I still use amazon...because I've always used amazon to get my manga. I amaze myself with how easily I can get stuck in my ways.
How is it so late in the day?! I'd better go; I've got Italians I need to be drawing!
