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.

Trends on Horror

Here are some trends I picked up on recently. The big push for horror isn’t in October.  It’s June, July and August.  As someone who self publishes books, I’m not at all interested in what’s trending.  Mainly because I just need to write as many and publish as many books as possible.  Following trends gets thrown out the window when you want to publish four to six books a year. I already knew that books and dvds, perhaps most streaming get released on Tuesdays.  At one time I knew why. It was the whole business of everything getting shifted because of the pandemic that I realized that the push for horror was June through August.  Harrow the Ninth was supposed to be released in 25 June and now is 4 August.  The Night of the Mannequins by Stephen Graham Jones was supposed to be released on 14 July and is now 1 September.  That was supposed to be my Birthday book this year. What I found out about Stephen Graham Jones is that a novel of his should have already been released, but i

my first and only read of The Deathly Hallows

When Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows came out, I lived in Korea.  There is a fourteen hour time difference between Seoul and Omaha.  I went to the book store on the day it was released, like when the book store opened and bought my copy.  I started to read it on the bus ride home.  When I got to my apartment, I read it that day plus the day after.  I was determined to be the first in my family to have finished the book.  I ordered take out from the restaurant on the first floor of my apartment building and snacked on stuff I already had.  The book came out on a Saturday, which is unusual because books are normally released on a Tuesday.  I had no contact with the rest of the world, well accept for when I skyped my mother on our weekly calls.  I read the 700+ page book in two days.  And that was all I did that weekend.  When I finished book, I couldn't actually see that well, like everything was a blur for the two days that followed.  It was the last time I read a large book w

The Stone of Destiny

The other movie I watched this weekend was also a biopic: The Stone of Destiny .  It was about four Scottish college students who went to Westminster Abby and stole a six hundred pound stone, which was a Scottish treasure.  I enjoyed it.  A bunch of Scottish students banding together to steal a national treasure back from the English. The movie was based off of a book, the writer was the leader of this little band.  After the events of the book, he went on to become a lawyer.  They pull off the heist and a few months later they returned the stone.  All involved were accused of stealing the stone, but never charged.  England was worried that if they charged the students with the theft of the stone, there would be riots by the Scottish and so dropped the charges.
