Currently: I feel tired beyond belief. I have severe joint pain and I have pains in my abdomen. All of which, has been normal for the past five or six years. Just not as painful as recent weeks.
I’m listening to The Seine by Elaine Sciolino. I’m a bit thrown off because it doesn’t go in chronological order. She presents things on points of interest. So she goes back and forth in time. Which is kind of confusing when one is used to a presentation that follows time periods.
I finished Sixty-one Nails by Mike Shevdon. It wasn’t bad. It wasn’t earth shattering writing. It passed time. At the end, I wouldn’t mind listening to the sequel. I forgot the name of it at the moment.
I’m reading short stories by Benedict Ashforth. I really think he is the modern day MR James.
I am watching Miss Marple. It is weird, but they adapted Agatha Christie’s non-sleuth mysteries with Miss Marple. Like The Pale Horse, which doesn’t have her. In that novel, the amateur sleuth doesn’t solve the case, the detective does. But in the adaptation, Miss Marple does. So is different from the novel, but similar. The Amazon/Rufus Sewell adaptation of the same book was far different and yet similar. The weird thing is shares a similarity to the Miss Marple version.
I am playing Legend of Zelda: a Link to the Past. It has been more than ten years since I last played that game. But I remember most. And the people along the way give you super easy clues. So I don’t need to look up online what I need to find or do to defeat the dungeon.
I am doing the online course on editing. So far, it really isn’t anything new. What it really does is it lists out a process. Editing, like writing has been kind of a random thing. I know what to do, I just don’t have a process down.
