IS IT ANY SURPRISE I GET ILL AND DEPRESSED with books like the ones described to you earlier hanging around. Always unread, half-read, half-finished. Another lot of books I didn't mention is my bargain classics. I had a phase of going through the range ordering great literature of the past from the list ... yet not being able to finish it all.
HOW CAN I NOT HAVE MENTIONED the 2.3 inches of entertainment that kept talking all night? Yes it's a mini portable TV. But as I said before -- what's to watch on it??
SO HAVING PASSED THE NIGHT in coma-like sleep, I sleep some more not wanting to break off sleep ... why am I getting like that. By the time I was even half awake Loose Woman was on ITV. This is an interview show with five interviewers to one guest. Which might sound a lacklustre formula but nothing's further from the truth. One of the Loose Women looks like Mother H's friend Rebs, which always makes us laugh. Because Rebsie does not see this. And loathes and despises her own onscreen lookie-lykie..!
No, life's still drearily slow. What am I saying? I AM DREARILY SLOW-- so no change there then. No I can't move I'm wading through toffee. Treading water in treacle. (Or just treading treacle.) Drowning in honey. I feel so incredibly boring and dull. But hey I still managed to make a posting out of absolutely nothing at all. So that's good I suppose. And when it comes to books there's still Dostoyevsky's Crime & Punishment going unfinished, which I've read about two thirds of and think is brilliant. If heavy going. Then Tolstoy's Anna Karenina. (Extremely involved.) I made a dutiful stab at Hardy's Tess of the D'urvervilles but after the first hundred pages the tale gets woefully dull, as if the life has gone from the story and yet the teller is still contractually bound to furnish yet another 250 pages on top..!! So maybe I'll traipse up the bookshop later and put Sherlock Holmes on order. I didn't realize it was just £2 so that's a cheap addiction to my collection. Right I'm shutting up now.
