Week Three (02/08/21)

Monday: I finished another book! Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended for those who do not mind their stories narrated by foul-mouthed tame crows. There was one annoyingly simplistic character ending and the last two pages were needlessly tacked on solely to sooth humanity’s ego, but neither of those things…

A mixed bag

My renewed reading is still in full swing, for which I am incredibly grateful, and it felt like time to regale the Internet with more of my opinions, for which I’m sure you’re all incredibly grateful too. I had mixed results from the books I chose to read, hence the title, so these aren’t in…

(Be warned…) Let’s get ready to RAMBLE!

As the title suggest this may well not be my most coherent post, apologies in advance. In fact, if properly strung together sentences with double checked spelling and grammar are your thing you might want to back away now. I may have mentioned before that I have suffered significant periods of insomnia for most of…

Creature comforts part 3

I don’t usually watch a lot of telly but I can be persuaded to go to the cinema for the odd blockbuster. I adore huge films with massive explosions as well as adorable indie films which few people have heard of, but in recent years the bits they don’t talk about in the blockbusters –…

Two out of Four

If you had asked me a couple of months ago what I would do with some unexpected free time then book reading would have been top of the list. That is not how it has worked out. What I have been doing instead is hate-watching bad films and telly whilst knitting what I am lovingly…

Ok, that does it

My experiment is NOT going well. I did not get a single track off this album for the iPod so compliation CDs are going on the veto list. (I am, however going to be listening to the whole of Fatboy Slim – You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby, now that I’ve had a gentle reminder…

Whose idea was this?

As explained in previous posts I am experimenting upon myself and it is starting to wear a little. I am still pretty sure it will have benefits at some point…just not yet. I changed my charity shop choice for this one. I closed my eyes and picked this CD from a branch of Barnardos, rather…

Another musical voyage

Following on from my decision to experiment, musically, on myself (here) I once again ventured through the door of the small nearby charity shop to choose CDs. This time I had company, who found it highly amusing that I managed to pick out Something To Remember by Madonna (an album of ballads) and Spirit of…

Voyages into discovery

In the dim and distant past (12th Jan 2019) I wrote about mad scientists working for Dangerous Megalomaniacs in order to pay for their experiments (here). While I disagree with mad scientists disregarding the beautiful, logical, effective scientific methods and protocols, I do feel the same urge to experiment upon myself sometimes. I also get…
