Summer Reading

Ventured out into the sales today, picked up a few books for my summer reading.

- Gregory Maguires 'Wicked' (currently reading)
- Salman Rushdies 'Midnight Children'
- Leo Tolstoys 'Anna Karenina'
- Kenneth Grahames 'Wind in the Willows'
- Andrea Camilleri - Rounding the Mark'

Even though my bookshelf is overflowing I can't help myself. Seeing as I have a few free days coming up. Then when work starts again and train rides really need something to pass the time. Other than listening to people's inane conversations and looking at the same scenery day in day out. These should keep me busy for a while.

Enjoy your holidays, hope you have a great 2009!

Merry Christmas

You know what I like about Christmas? I only have to have a 10 minute phone conversation with the family, usually early in the morning. Then I'm free to do whatever the hell I like. I don't have to listen the same old stories/jokes, see relatives I care nothing for, which btw is 98% of them. I don't have to feign surprise or delight or interest at anything I get, because you know what? they can't see me, it doesn't matter.
Anyway I hope you guys have a good Christmas, whatever it means (or doesn't) to you.

Black & White

Some things look better in black & white, this photo I took for example.
