My current colour code includes deep, succulent shades of red. Apparently I have nothing in the hue of wine or oxblood in my closet, but lipstick and nail polish gave a hand here, and the comics I'm biting through have red in them too.
American Vampire is the best comics find I've had in a while, the artwork is wonderfully dynamic and I'm especially fond of the way the series portrays different vampire species. It's violent, crude and although the story takes place in the old times it still has a modern feel to it. It feels good to see honestly monstrous and blood-thirsty children of the night on these pages, after the huge wave of those glittery sissies. I'm anxious to read the other parts too but someone got ahead of me in the library, so I can only wait.
To continue on the path of red things, for I enjoy theme posts; Here's a candy apple red water boiler that crossed my path the other day. I was just about to purchase this boiler to replace our broken one but found it in a second hand shop before striking the deal. It's a wonder how often this happens at flea markets, the thing you're looking for just pops right in front of your eyes!
I also felt like sharing these apples with you, because for a little moment they felt like the most miraculous thing in the world. I get moments like these a lot and I want to share more of these random things that touch me, hope you don't mind. Their beauty got my attention at the fruit counter and I had to carry some of them home. The very instant I saw red skies shifting with glowing stars in them, like miniature universes holding life inside of them. But much more scrumptious.

And now for the other Apple.
The Apple I'll be staring at school for the months to come whenever my other duties allow me to. This concerns my blog too, I won't be having as much time to update now so please bear with me darlings! I have a deadline lurking ahead of me and I need to finish my thesis and other courses or dig up a gaping hole, six feet deep, in the cold ground of unfinished degrees.
This is the most important focus point in my life now, this is my conquerable Mount Everest and the battlefield I will fight through even if it requires sleepless nights and collateral damage of a social nature. The good news is I'll probably enjoy my ride since the thesis subject is so lovely! I'll try to post whenever I have free time, but as I already said, I'm short of that for the time being.
