Song mood: Girl All the Bad Boys Want by Bowling for Soup.  Not sure if this accurate.


I can’t really elaborate.  I might think it’s okay to say that I like a certain type of woman, but really it’s easy for me to dig myself in a hole.  So needless to say whoever I find attractive is the most beautiful woman ever.  

I think all my life I have been looking for a Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.  Someone I could bounce ideas off of.  Someone who will work with me and I work with her on artistic projects.  Mary Shelley would seem as someone who is plain looking, but I think her attractive.  She wrote Frankenstein after all.  She was quite smart.  Cleverness is what I find most attractive in a woman.


So Saturday.  I’m still having issues with my car.  I’m not really ready to give up on it.  I would need advice.  But before that, I will do some tune ups and one thing I didn’t think to do because I’m not a mechanic, calibrate the sensor.  On one of the parts that I bought to fix the problem said that one should drive up to 70 mph and coast until 40 mph three times.  Another website says to rev the engine up to like 4000-7000 rpms and let it slow down three times.  Anyways.


Tomorrow is another day.  I will work with the car a bit.  Buy some cigars.  Smoke some cigars.  Get some walking in.  Read the book that I have been anticipating so much over the year.


Sunday, will be a day with cousins.  We’ll watching things, maybe finish the Umbrella Academy season 2.  The first episode of Endeavour is Sunday.  Endeavour is probably my favorite show.  Enough where I made a trip to Oxford and will do so again just to be in the atmosphere.


If I get things working again with my car, I’ll probably get a hotel in Lincoln and order take pizza from the mellow mushroom for my birthday.  Maybe convince some friends to join me at the pizza place.  There’s something about spending a night at a motel/hotel and eating pizza that is attractive to the the mystery writer.


There are things I would like to say here, but know enough to wait.  Life happens.  I know that everything will work out in the way it should.  Still it’s stressful until the events happen.

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

Anticipated Books of 2021

For me, the two most anticipated books are both by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.  The first one is Certain Dark Things to be released 7 September and the second is Velvet is the Night to be released 17 August.  Both are after my birthday so they can’t be my birthday book.  Which is too bad.  Garcia proved she could very write well with Mexican Gothic .  I’m inclined to believe she is the best writer out there. Currently I’m listening to Untamed Shores , Garcia’s thriller that was released last year.  It is similar to Mexican Gothic except without the elements of horror. Speaking of the birthday book, I finally chose the one.  And this time there will be no hiccups.  This year’s birthday book will be: The Album of Dr. Moreau by Daryl Gregory.  The book is set to be released on 18 May.  Three months before my birthday and if the book is to be pushed out, I think it would about a month or so.  It’s a murder mystery that involves a boy band formed by the animal people from The Island of Doctor
