Apart from the massive headache, it's been a good day.  I met youngest nephew today for the first time.  He seemed to like me and that's a good thing.

I experienced a moment of intense dejavu, a week after the last episode of dejavu.  I was telling myself, my sister is going to say this.  The television will say that.  Then I search my memories to see will happen in the future and tell myself it doesn't work that way.

I then think of the movie 'Arrival' and tell myself I should finish reading 'Story of Your Life,' by Ted Chiang the novella that inspired the movie.

I know I should be working on finishing the second draft.  But the headache has only dulled slightly after taking Tylenol and Ibuprofen.

Yesterday, I ate a 16oz bag of cherry nibs and drank a 16oz can of Coke and now everything seems to be out of whack.

Tomorrow, I go my hometown and visit a couple of my uncles.  It's a 90 minute drive from the big town that my mum and sister live in to my hometown.  I don't have phone reception in my hometown.

Hopefully the headache isn't as bad tomorrow.

  So I made some changes in plan for my birthday.   I decided to get a room at Aksarben Suites.   I’ll spend the day in Aksarben and pretend that I traveled.   What I will have, I’ll decide tomorrow, although I suspect that it will be Pickleman’s pizza.   I’ll read and chill.   Maybe I’ll take a bus to the Dundee Dell.   So many things I can do.   For coffee, I’ll go to the Starbucks on 90 th and Pacific.   That one has the Verismo coffee machine makes an excellent cup of coffee.   I can even take an early walk at the lake as I make my way to Aksarben.

Song mood: Mysterious Ways by U2. Currently I’m listening to The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan.  I’ve listened to a couple of novellas that she wrote where her detective Cormac Reilly briefly shows up in and liked them.  This is the first book with her star detective.  Between McTiernan and Trevor on who writes better suspense, I would say hands down McTiernan.   A person who writes mysteries as a genre follow a set of conventions so that the reader isn’t in a state of confusion.  One great example is putting dates before each section or series of sections.  Literary writers don’t follow conventions and the confusion at times come from the writing.  Where I say, let the characters mislead the reader not the writing itself. I am enjoying The Ruin .  It’s nice to get back to a solid mystery. I continue to walk at the lake.  Although, it’s a modified path where I get around 2.5 miles instead 4 miles.  I still need to figure out what to do for exercise in the winter.  I want to get a rowing m
