Christmas Eve 2021

It's Christmas Eve and tomorrow will be a long day. Midnight Mass at the Vatican will air at 11:35pm and finish at 1am. Had I known, I could have watched the live stream at 12:00pm my time. But instead I was driving my mum around town.

Then I want to watch the launch of the James Webb telescope. That takes place at 7:20am Eastern Time. The Time Zone I live in is Central, so 6:20am. As I said, it'll be a long day.

I just finished watching It's a Wonderful Life. I get weepy towards the end. I won't have to watch that movie for another year.

So it will snow early this morning. It's predicted for 2 to 3 inches of snow. Which won't be as bad. But then it will snow late Sunday night and that is predicted to snow 4 to 6 sox inches. So I may be heading home on Sunday to avoid the second storm.

Fun days ahead. Tomorrow will be a lazy day. Sunday, I will be traveling. Monday will be catching up on my shows. Tuesday, I'll probably do some writing. I work for two days and then it will the end the year, which will probably be a mad dash to finish reading a few books.

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
