More Ramblings

For some reason time is moving very oddly this week. First it will seem to be dragging, then suddenly I'll look up to find it has flown. I am feeling distracted and I suppose that has a lot to do with it.

I have been doing quite a bit of reading lately. I recently finished re-reading Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I thought I'd like to see the movie and it would be nice to have the story fresh in my mind. Who knows if I will actually get out to the movie has been a while since I've been able to get out to a movie.

At the moment I am almost finished with the third installment in the Dexter series Dexter in the Dark by Jeff Lindsay. I read the other two over a year ago, I think, and I had forgotten how purple the prose can be. Honestly, I almost gave up at the beginning, but kept on and found that it wasn't so bad once I got used to it.

Yesterday morning I watched a movie that Secret Agent Man had recommended to me as being funny. He was right. If you enjoy lightweight comedies you will enjoy Let's Go to Prison. It isn't a "film" you are going to see good review for, but it did make me LOL a few times. Bonus, the song Move This by Technotronic is now stuck in my head. can have it too!

You do have the rather eclectic taste, to borrow a certain friends nickname. The name of the book/movie "Love in the Time of Cholera is rather intriguing to me....I might have to do some searches and see what it is all about.

Hmm, haven't heard of that movie, but if it makes you laugh than I think I'll give it a try!

This week has gone very slow for me. I'm sure it's because it's the first week back from Thanksgiving break. Some of that sleepy chemical triptophan or whatever that's in turkey has seeped into the clocks. ;)

It's been so long since I've read Love in the Time of Cholera, I could read it again and it would probably feel like the first time.

Evil-E: Even though it is probably not what you think, check it out anyway. Anyone in love should be able to appreciate it.

Tara: The triptophan! That explains so much about my foggy head!
Yeah, if you ever want to watch something that is just uncomplicated fun Let's Go to Prison works well.

Churlita: I have found that reading it as a more "mature" woman leads me to look at the story quite differently than I did reading it as a teenager / college student....
