Song mood: Magic by Pilot.

My day in review. 

Well, I worked. 

Till about three. 

Then I looked for my wallet. Wondering where it could be. Couldn’t find it and went to the cigar shop. No one seen my wallet. So I took out the cigar I would have smoked while I walked around the lake. Except today, I told myself I wasn’t going to smoke a cigar.  I ended up not walking and hung out with my crime writer friend and talked about photography. I retraced my steps last night and figured out that my wallet was in the laundry hamper. I had taken it out of the pocket of the shorts I was wearing yesterday. I went home and dumped out all my dirty clothes to find that the wallet was no where near my laundry hamper. So at this point I’m searching anything that has pockets. The wallet was in a pajama pocket. I must have been tired last night and for some reason thought it was a good idea to put my wallet in my pajama pocket. 

I always find a way to outsmart myself.

Then I went to the mall and got a donner kabob with curry fries.

I watched Now You See Me. Probably one of my favorite movies. I watched it this time thinking about Paris. Some parts of the movie, I can remember what it was like being in Paris. Like the section they were in was similar to ones I was in. I just get that feeling. The feeling of being in Paris.

I get emotional at the scenes in the movie that take place in New Orleans. Which makes me think, that the person I should marry a person who wouldn’t think me weird if I were to cry in the middle of the movie for no apparent reason.

I really like watching mysteries, especially with other people because I don’t as emotional with those. Mainly my mind goes in problem solving mode.

I think right now, I have enough time watch a mystery. Tomorrow, I’ll probably go to Fargo. Depending on when I can get the oil changed on my car.

I really need someone to learn French with. I can learn French, but having someone to speak with, would help. But then, that is kind of like writing. I need someone to push me to write.

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

  Song mood: In Too Deep by Genesis. It’s been an Inspector Morse weekend.  I’m halfway through the original series.  I think I came upon an understanding.  If the show follows the book closely, it will say based on the book.  After the second season, the shows stopped following the books closely and then it says based off the characters.  Some of them say based off an idea by the author, which would indicate that the author collaborated with the producers for the screenplay. The other thing that I realized is that if they are going to follow the series, Chief Inspector Thursday won’t be in the new show for much longer.  Which this last season hinted at. I expect to work on my own mystery this week.  It happens in Sandy, England.  My Inspector Trevor is surnamed after the Irish author, William Trevor.   Trevor is one of the biggest names in literature.  Or he was when I attended college for Creative Writing.  I’ve read a few of his short stories.  I think I should listen to a fe

Song mood: Hazy Shade of Winter by the Bangles. More cousins are catching either covid of the flu. Thankfully, no one has caught fluvid yet. I have been isolating, which isn’t much different than before this last wave struck. My mum went to the doctor today. And I thought they were going to schedule the procedure. The doctors told her they need to run more tests. She has hypertension in her lungs. Two of her valves are leaking blood into the lungs. The next appointment is on 28 January. So that has been a bit stressful. Currently listening to Essays by George Orwell. It’s the whole collection of his essays. I really love Orwell’s writing. The far right like to quote him, but they have never really read him. Because if they had, they would know like those of us who have read his essays, that he was a socialist. He was a part of the British socialist party, which is the Labor party. He really believed that we should be helping out our brotherhood of man. I will be listening to this for
