This month went over SO quickly! I was really happy about how I was doing in the first half – related to blogging & reading. In the second half… not so much.. buuuut we are moving to our new place tomorrow! If nothing happens last minute (which might, there have been enough complications already). IF we end up moving, you might not hear much from me for 1-2 weeks, as we haven’t ordered our new internet yet. It’s on the list for tomorrow though and shouldn’t take long. I’ll be on twitter & instagram over my phone though, depending on how good our reception is 😉
I hope I can show you guys a lot of pictures pretty soon!
So how much did I read this month?
Saga, Vol. 7 / Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples –> finished! Oh god, that was one of the best ones and probably the most emotional & sad!
Wrath of Empire / Brian McClellan –> finished! Brilliant, and now I’m all caught up!
Leviathan Wakes / James S. A. Corey –> finished! Also lots of fun and I will continue with the series at some point.
Winter of the Witch / Katherine Arden –> 51% in. Ummm.. I might be stuck? Haha, I can’t concentrate on reading very well right now. Let’s hope it’s getting better again once we’re settled.
I don’t plan to read a lot next month.. but if I have some time, I’d like to start those:
Let’s see how I go! I haven’t started an audio book yet, but that’s also the plan for February. I pick either Juliet Marillier or Seanan McGuire!
Apart from reading, this month has been pretty enjoyable. We made some nice food at work…
I had the BEST ‘Bloody Mary’ on earth!
..and one of our customers showed me a book from her collection. (She’s almost 90 and of course this one has a new title nowadays…I think they changed it in the 70s?)
We went doggo-sitting…
…and tried not to melt in 47 degrees!
It actually cooled down to 18 today and I am freezing. Sunday it should be up to 38 again. Melbourne is at it again!
One of the coolest things that happened this month was me meeting one of my absolute favourite wrestlers, Jimmy Havoc. He came to work for ‘Melbourne City Wrestling’ and I was able to have a little chat, take a pic and buy some of his merch.
Yes! I met the dude who’s on my shirt!! And he was really cool, I will definitely go see him again when he’s here.
Here he’s in the ring:
I need to stop buying so many wrestling shirts, I have WAY too many already and there’s so many more I want to have… Why do they have to look so cool?
Going to wrestling shows is one of our favourite things right now! Last year I was able to meet a couple of cool wrestlers already, like famous dick wrestler Joey Ryan (who was unfortunately injured) & WALTER, who is now signed to NXT UK. Watching WALTER live made me an instant fan! I was fortunate to see him before he signed his new contract.
They were SO NICE AS WELL!
Now some sad news…. I’m going to retire Hiroshi Tanahashi….. Because this hairstyle is just not okay!
You can’t just go red like that!
But no worries, I will replace Tana! I am just not sure with whom yet….. It’s either Minoru Suzuki (grumpy old MMA Fighter turned pro wrestler who loves coffee & socks and thinks he’s a ‘One Piece’-character… I think he now actually IS a character in ‘One Piece’)
or Kota Ibushi (looks the same since 2008 I think, so no interesting hair-do. But he does a lot of goofy stuff, wears clothes that are more expensive than my car, moonsaults off absolutely everything and likes to set himself or others on fire)
It is not easy!
