Ornaments, Saga, Arrow

Seporah made it!

Seporah has been sick.  Yesterday (Monday) she was diagnosed with Strep and she has been taking amoxicillin.  She missed a big test at school today but they are letting her retake it tomorrow.  She was a zombie yesterday, slept through most of the day, but today she was a little better.

We spent a solid portion of the day making Christmas ornaments for Mom.  I think they turned out ok.  We followed a Lifehacker tutorial for printing onto wood via some wax paper and then lacquered it up.  It turned out pretty good, but I think something with bolder colors will turn out even better.  I expect to do a few more projects before Christmas.  Märia has been having me make Nativities for her, which is quite fun.

I have been reading quite a bit of Saga.  It is one of the best books I have read in a long time.  I was never a comic book reader.  At least, I didn’t read the stereotypical “super hero” comic books.  I read the occasional Richie Rich and Casper and Archie (I loved Betty and Veronica, go team Betty!) but I never dug the guys wearing underwear outside their pants, and I still don’t.  (That is what TV and movies are for.) But I got into the continuation of Buffy, and then read some Serenity/Firefly and Jericho comics.  Dr. Horrible.  And then I found Y: the Last Man.  Really great writing.  Go check it out.  Also: Runaways.

Careful with Saga, it isn’t for kids. It is definitely mature material.  That does not in any way take away from its greatness.  It is about a family on the run, a warrior who has taken a vow of peace, and an antihero who makes you want to stand and cheer.  The female protagonist is a reader.  I love readers.  Seriously, my favorite thing to do with Seporah is to see what she is reading, suggest books to her, and read her suggestions.  She told me to read Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi and I was not disappointed.  She also loves Calvin and Hobbs.  It will be hard not to favor her.  =)

I just finished watching Arrow and The Flash.  All my shows are on Hiatus for the winter break.  Let us not fool ourselves.  Arrow isn’t dead.  Seriously.  Remember the Buffy Bot?  Something similar or a resurrection will be happening in January.  =)
