Song mood: Fix You by Coldplay. I should really make a list of bands that I would like to see. Then look them up to see if they are still doing concerts. It’s been one of those lazy Saturdays where adulting is tough.
Last night I watched Blow the Man Down. The advertising for it said it had a 99% fresh tomato rating. I’m beginning to think that rating is crap. The movie wasn’t real terrible, but it wasn’t that great either. Twenty minutes in this movie, I thought this was terrible and then it picked up a bit. It had a Twin Peaks kind of feel to it.
All summer, Harrow the Ninth wasn’t showing up for Audible. The formats were just hardcover and ebook. Today, it did show up and I got the audio version, which is over 19 hours long. Now, I’m going back to the book I bought for my birthday book: The Garden of Bewitchment by Catherine Cavendish. A gothic horror at 229 pages. I can finish that one in a week.
The issue I had with the car has been resolved. I changed oil, I knew it had been a while, and then took it out on the highway to calibrate the sensor. Fingers crossed the car last for a while so I can save up more.
I need to make time to write out some projects. Sometimes when I stop writing, it takes a little bit to get me started up again. Which is why I’m writing more of these posts. I need to actually sit down and work out what I need to do to finish projects.
Mexican Gothic has become the surprise best novel of the year. It is so excellently crafted. The woman who wrote it, is very talented. I want to get a paper copy so I can write notes about how to craft a horror novel like it.
Tonight and tomorrow, I will write a list of things to do. That way next week will be somewhat coordinated. I think I will go to Lincoln for my birthday. Do some hiking and reading. Order pizza from the Mellow Mushroom.
I learned today that Caniglia’s A Mano, the pizza place next to the lake I walk around has cauliflower pizza crusts as an option. Which is good, because I need more healthy restaurants to go. I’m definitely trying them out next week.
I think next week is going to be a good writing week. I’m going to get something solid done.
