So what did I do over my month off? Well, I did lots of things and I will tell you about some of them.
For example, I finished the 3rd season of Bones (WTF?!); I watched the fourth Jaws sequel (kinda wish I hadn't); I read a history of the Paris flood of 1910 (great stuff); I got mugged by the IDW omnibus of volume 3 of Locke & Key; I dodged a ton of spoilers about the 5th season of Doctor Who; and I'm anxiously awaiting arrival of my copy of the Torchwood graphic novel, Rift War -- how could I resist something written by John Barrowman? That's just too much for any one fan-girl to walk away from!
I also worked a lot of hours, applied for quite a few jobs, had one interview, re-learned some high-school math and, as far as employment goes, am right back where I started at the end of July. But I did try; my mom would say that counts. I'm not entirely convinced.
So what's the upshot of all this? I watched some interesting things; read some other interesting things; and I'll see if I can glue together a few sentences to talk about them.
