Claire x Nikki Mash Ups
We didn’t do any other mash-ups? Oh we are bad….
This month: The fella and I got to keep RUBY again!! Yaaaay!
But now she’s gone back home and I don’t know how to live anymore. But my clothes are no longer covered in hair so I guess there’s that. 😦

House guest: Ruby
Band: Depeche Mode. Because every song is gold…even though they’re from the 80’s (oooh buuurn, 80’s! burrrrnnnn!)
I have since been informed that they are not screaming “JUDE LAAAAW!” in Wrong (song in the video) but I am always too lazy to find out what they’re saying and I don’t think it would matter anyway.
Oh my goodnesssssss! I miss the blog so much. I’ve been a bit busy this month and my computer is broken, so I’m doing this on a not-ver-user-friendly tablet. So, July! It’s been full of highs and lows, I found out that my best work friend has quit and I will miss her terribly. It’ll be an excuse to meet up with her out of work and chill though.
In good news, utter random and good news, I saw a job I liked and bugged the heck out a recruiter who decided to actually give me a shot! I’ve had 2 interviews for a company I love and I don’t know the result, but everyone. please cross your fingers, I really, really want this job! I haven’t been able to read as much because of it- doing prep for interviews and writing job essays, but I am sincerely hoping to get in some hardcore reading.
In other July news, I went to YALC this year and had a blast. I love the general comic-con bit as well. It was great fun being around all those books and listening to the lectures. Up next? Operate have fun with Rinn!
Some shots from July, I said goodbye to a dear friend who bequeathed her entire tea collection to me. I also got a new umbrella featuring work by one of my favourite artists Gustav Klimt.

Books of the Month
This month I decided to read a Robin Hobb book. This month, my life changed. This month, I fell in love. She has some problems in that she takes a bit long to get to the point but I love her work. You’ll be seeing some reviews coming up and if you’re a fan of dragons, oh my goodness, get on this book right away!
Movies: I treated myself to Jurassic World this month and it was surprisingly good. It’s cheesy and I have issues with that chick running in heels but it’s genuinely good. It’s all about the Chris Pratt for me, I wish he got to joke around a bit more though.
That’s about it fo the favies though, haven’t had much time for music or even TV. Sigh, I miss TV.
How was your July?
