Welp. I moved this site to a different host and in the process lost a few posts. Also, if you follow this site already, you’ll need to do so again. If you don’t, feel free to join in the fun! I haven’t slept in a while, so I assume any and all errors are my fault. I’m also planning on adding a follow button right after writing this. 😀
I tried going to bed at 9 PM, but my body laughed and laughed. One of my near neighbors decided to cook something with a strong odor tonight. It’s probably a lovely dish to eat, but the overpowering smell invading my apartment, as a result, is unpleasant. It took a lot to refrain from going into the hallway and suggesting the cook crack an effing window (it’s 34° F.)
I turned up my air purifiers (and cracked an effing window.) Hopefully, it will fade soon. Otherwise, I might try the Vicks Vapo Rub option like a coroner’s observer. Sigh. I’m willing to admit I’m cranky. I’m setting a new record for consecutive wakefulness, and there’s not even a prize. I know which post I lost! My only literature post to date. So now this is going to replace it. Heh.
I chose a novel to read: The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens. It’s hilarious. I’m sure it will adjust my cranky attitude in no time. It follows Mr. Pickwick and his fellow club members around England while he takes meticulous notes and meets several amusing characters. It doesn’t have any tragedy if I recall correctly, which is why I picked it.
Before this story, I reread The Lords of Discipline by Pat Conroy. I wrote about it in the post that disappeared. It’s an excellent book, but it was also brutal. I should have waited until after I begin taking sleeping medication, but hindsight is an asshole. I’m looking forward to a book release by John Scalzi. It’s a sequel to Lock In. If you haven’t read it yet, I feel sorry for you.
If you’re into audiobooks, it’s on Audible narrated by Will Wheaton. It’s a near-future science fiction novel by an excellent author. Seriously. It’s worth joining Audible just to get it. They let you have your first book free, (and then you can quit if you don’t want to spend the money.) You’ll totally want to thank me after you read it, so you’re welcome. I’m off to read.
