Regina Spektor - Eet

I am definitely not a lyrics person, at least I wasn't used to. But these words ... it's killing me here. I hope you like it. Here is the song's link from her official soundcloud.

I was talking stuff with Nomin and GusGus this morning (3 AM) and then I was driving to Ulaanbaatar Astronomical Observatory with my mom, sister, a family friend and the curator of the observatory/centre T. Bayaraa, an astronomer (not an astrologist, he told me a story of a journalist who titled him that in a WWW and got scolded).

One interesting thing that Mr. Bayaraa told us that we (I) didn't know was that the Curiosity is landing on Mars in 3 days. 3 DAYS!!! (The official time is August 6th 1:30PM  GMT +0800) How cool is that? NASA Explores the Red Planet web page has countdown clock and other information on that. Maybe check it out if you're interested.

Blackout

Author: Mira Grant
Title: Blackout
Series: Newsflesh #3

From the ending of its prequel Deadline, I had a big suspense for the last installment of the Newsflesh trilogy. And I'll say I loved it. No better proceeding and ending can be asked for.

I can't say much about this novel here, for this not being an independent novel - my hands and mouth is tied here.

Totally recommended!

Goodreads description:

"Rise up while you can." - Georgia Mason 
The year was 2014. The year we cured cancer. The year we cured the common cold. And the year the dead started to walk. The year of the Rising. 
The year was 2039. The world didn't end when the zombies came, it just got worse. Georgia and Shaun Mason set out on the biggest story of their generation. The uncovered the biggest conspiracy since the Rising and realized that to tell the truth, sacrifices have to be made. 
Now, the year is 2041, and the investigation that began with the election of President Ryman is much bigger than anyone had assumed. With too much left to do and not much time left to do it in, the surviving staff of After the End Times must face mad scientists, zombie bears, rogue government agencies - and if there's one thing they know is true in post-zombie America, it's this: 
This can always get worse.

As for the "last" free day of my summer vacation, I went to CoffeeDay event whose invitation were sent from @enhmandah to @AnuHarchu, @TergelA, @chimkaP, @Nomiujka@Nomuna_T, @Tugsbileg, @Frank_Moon and @Duinkher. Well, it's not a huge thing, it's just bunch of people who don't get the excuse often meet up in a coffee shop and talk bunch of things while drinking any variation of coffee. Now it sounds pretty normal, because it is. But I love these event.

Getting ready for the CoffeeDay.

Lol, I was the only one who showed up right at the time. As if I knew that, I brought my kindle.
Iced Caffe Latte + Kindle = Life saver

People are still coming in.
P.S. As Hero told me (us), that not zooming your camera and taking photo of faces can distort them, which happened here.

Hero took the photo mumbling to himself something I didn't really understand. You know me and cameras don't really go well together. LOL.
