33 Let’s Read Dracula Like a Fujoshi — The Dr. Lobotomy Sedative Timewarp

Hello again. I have survived August deadline hell and let me tell you I am so tired. I was hoping to recover over the weekend but people who love me keep making plans because they want to spend time with me, and I can’t say no because I love them too. Feeling a little burnt out and I hope I can shake it soon.

This morning in my backyard, chickadees are everywhere and don’t seem to care if I’m here or not. I love chickadees. Yesterday too I encountered a particularly mouthy bluejay and set out a few peanuts for it. I watched it from my door as it tried to calculate where to cache one so it could come back for the rest. I’ve also seen some song sparrows back here with me but I haven’t coaxed the crows in yet. Next time I’ll tell you about the pigeon family.

I’ve got another treat at the end of this post for hardcore Dracula fans.

32 Let’s Read Dracula Like a Fujoshi — Soon to a City of Delicious Chumps

Tomorrow, August 18th is deadline hell day! Soon, I will be free. Freedom is right next door. Freedom is just peeking in.

31 Let’s Read Dracula Like a Fujoshi — Bedtime Disney Princess

So my blog doesn’t have ads because, frankly, I’m too stupid to figure out how to put ads on my blog. So if you wanna support me and this silly project, please tell your friends about it and consider leaving me a tip, perhaps? Otherwise I might have to figure out how to put ads on my blog.

30 Let’s Read Dracula Like a Fujoshi — No Homo. Unless…?

Did you know we’re not even halfway through this book yet? Entry 30 let’s go.

29 Let’s Read Dracula Like a Fujoshi — How Sweet Was Lucy Today?

I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is, I got a contract to copy edit a gay porno. The bad news is it’s a rush job so the next week and a half are going to be exhausting, but I’m going to do my best to keep up with Dracula. Dropping one raunchy gay porno to read another! This is the good life.

And yes, if your dream in life is to proofread gay pornos, you can do it too! But you shouldn’t because I want those jobs, thank you.

August 9th is another cutting from The Daily Graph (The Dailygraph?) so I’m going to summarize this guy again because his editors are letting him get away with murder.

28 Let’s Read Dracula Like a Fujoshi — Correspondent Shut-the-Fuck-Up Challenge

I’m really excited to finally get to chapters where Mina pastes things into her journal because I love making my journal into a scrapbook. Of course my “journal” is actually more like a daily planner, but having a small space where I can log events in bullet-point form if needed makes the whole process of keeping a journal much less daunting. That said, I love whenever I can have paper tickets to movies and shows to tape in. The more my planner can look like a scrapbook, the better.

This entry also reminds me that, for all the time I spent giving Stoker shit about never having weather, we have succeeded in having weather on the Demeter, and now here off the coast of Whitby. I guess a novel about a boat and a seaside town would be boring without weather since that’s all sailors and seaside people care or talk about, as you can see from this whole blog so far.

So yes, the following section is a cutting from The Daily Graph, which Mina has pasted into her journal.

HOLD THE PHONE, my copy of Dracula says that the paper is The Dailygraph. WHICH IS IT, DRACULA DAILY?

27 Let’s Read Dracula Like a Fujoshi — Mina the Folklorist

All right we’re back on track now! Just in time for our brief period of summer sun to give way to a forecast of two weeks of rain. Here’s hoping nobody else dies.

In other news I was reminded that I blogged here in…entry 5, 100 years ago that I bought This is How You Lose the Time War after some internet shenanigans. I thought you should know that I tried reading it and didn’t like it at all. I bought it because I love Trigun, I couldn’t finish it because I don’t like Trigun: Stampede.

One more piece of important news that I’m sure you don’t want to miss: Scruffy McFluffers, my foster cat, has finally gotten his shave. I’ve been trying to get it for him since the spring because he gets so terribly matted.

I tried to post a before and after photo but WordPress thinks my photos are too nice and huge and won’t upload them, so I guess you’ll have to just subscribe to my Patreon to see my very fluffy cat all naked.

Maybe it’s not smart to talk about cats on this blog because I will not shut up about cats.

Meanwhile, Mina is fretting about her fiancé again. Her wife is about to get a husband and it’ll be all wrong if they ruin the symmetry.

26 Let’s Read Dracula Like a Fujoshi — Accidentally a Deluxe Post

I fucked up. I thought the next few entries would be short ones about the Demeter and not some long-ass shit with Mina. Crap! I was busy being stressed about work, paying rent, and making memories in real life.

Well time for a deluxe entry. Sorry in advance.
