Song mood: Go Little Rockstar by Royal Sadness. It has a feeling of melancholy. I get this feeling of an eerie sadness when I listen to it. But the lyrics go from sad to upbeat. And that is what makes that song unique.
Tomorrow, I will head to Fargo to hang out with my mum over Christmas. I told her that I would go up on Friday. Then tomorrow, when I’m half way up, I tell her that I will be there in a few hours time. While I’m there, the low will be 0F (-17.7C). The average high will be 32F (0C). I don’t look forward to the coldness.
I finished listening to Jane Austin at Home by Lucy Worsley. I thought it was brilliant. I get a little weepy when she goes through Jane Austin’s death. It’s like she built up this character who dies in the end of a novel. Historians think she either had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or Addison’s disease.
Currently I’m listening to Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. I’m actually enjoying immensely. What I will say, that it is a rough read at the beginning. Which is why, I tried to read it before but could never get interested in it. The beginning makes no sense and that’s because the narrator is completely in the dark and is rather daft. But once you get to the fifth chapter, then everything is cool.
I’m currently reading Maigret in Montmartre by Georges Simenon and PD James’ Sleep No More. I should finish both before the New Year. My New Year’s resolution will be to read more books before buying another one. I think I should read at least ten to fifteen books before buying another one. What I need to do is stop buying books because I think I can write something similar. Anyway.
So, I will have a small adventure tomorrow. Then it will be Christmas.
Tonight, I will probably watch The Thin Man. What I normally watch on Christmas Eve. I’m not sure where my DVD for that movie is. I’ll swoon over Myrna Loy for a while. Tomorrow I head up north. I’ll stop at every book store there is on the way up there, just I can walk around a bit. It will be fun to hang out with my mum, but at the same time I’m dreading all the snow and cold.
