Now I want to get back to blogging. I don't actually have anything to say, since I've been sleeping in front of the telly for the past week or so. This is a blog entry where I pretend to have something to say.
Firewing Third in a series of three, animal fiction featuring bats. One of the books that's been laying around for a while, the books are good (but not brilliant).
Darwin's Descent of Man I enjoy Darwin, but I liked Origin of Species much better. eh. This is one of those fat books that I've been meaning to read.
Pride and Prejudice I read this book in October 2005, and from what I remember, the movie is faithful to the book. Pretty good movie, but I probably won't watch it again. Might read Sense and Sensibility soon, tho.
The Secret Garden It's been ages since I've read this book, so I was interested. It's an okay story, and I wouldn't mind reading the book again, but I probably wouldn't have watched the whole movie if I weren't bedridden. ;)
V for Vendetta which SO just brought home last night. I enjoyed it. Had to explain to SO about Guy Fawkes, :) I lived in England as a kid and have celebrated a couple Guy Fawkes Days: fireworks, carnivals and bonfires for burning effiges of Guy. oh, V was good, I can't wait for the American civil war to start.
But Tegan, of course, did mind. It took me a while to realize that she was sleeping more and not coming out of her house as much. dumb human.
I explained the situation to her... that we could get her eye fixed, but it's surgery, and even tho she was nice and healthy I didn't want to risk it because of her age. And I would re-arrange the outside of her house so she had less junk to run into when she was out walking. And I would always let her know where I was by talking to her more. And I would try to remember to touch her whiskers before petting her.
Tegan found these terms acceptable, and she's been much happier ever since. She comes out of her house for a few walkabouts every day. I even noticed she did a couple guinea pig popcorns.
And I just made my first loaf of bread of the year. Actually, I'll be making two loaves today. Now that I've converted SO to homemade bread for sandwiches for work, I have to make twice as much!
Insane irises. I hope they make me some flowers this year. You know, if they live at all.
