BACK WITH A CLICK

After a few days of non-blogging, I have decided to come back.... not that the clutter in my head has reduced or anything like that, but I kinda feel way better than I was a few weeks ago!

Allright, I have another post to put up, and will be visiting my favourite hangouts soon!

AS THEY SAY, I'LL BE BACK

I've noticed that I have been having an immense difficulty in gathering my thoughts and am therefore unable to blog at a frequency that pleases me. So for that reason as well as being extremely busy with the thing I do daily to at least help pay the internet bill, I have come to the decision to take a small break for an unknown period.



On that note, to all the tags and memes I haven't yet been able to do, (tags by Lizza and the frolicsome kid as well as the queen) no worries... I shall return to them when I've settled all those unfinished business.



See ya'll soon :)

ON THE NEWS

Barbarians rule the house,
Potty mouthed and vile,
Play games like cat and mouse
We're sure they taste like bile.

Disrespect and chauvinism,
Part of the package they say,
Living in a chasm,
Disgusting in a way.

END OF A PUNISHMENT AND THE BEGINNING OF GOOD OMENS!


Wasn't that a mouthful? What I'm trying to subtly say is that I have finished reading Crime and Punishment by Fyodor D. Finally. (see, I can't even type out the authors surname without looking it up... the book is far away at the moment!)

It took me slightly more than 3 months to finish it, and if it weren't for the conditions I set in early March, the book may have been chucked into the cupboard and be best friends with the silverfish (the insect) that lurk there (whenever allowed to), abandoned and yellowing and hating me for the desertion.

If any book could be called complex, this has to be it. The main character is a multi faceted and extremely complex guy that it makes it difficult for easy reading. (Of course it was probably never intended to be easy reading in the first place, but as I now do most of my reading before going to sleep, maybe this book was a bad idea! - It's like taking an encyclopaedia on airplanes (when you're not an airplane afficionado) to a vacation in Bali, or something like that)

So, after three months (and slightly more) of trudging through the pages of minuscule print and falling asleep while reading and losing the last page and then looking for the last page again, etc. I finally finished it. In what I'd describe as a strange occurence, I find myself to quite like it - the story, not the idea of reading it!

Anyway, the preset condition was this... 'as long as this book remains unfinished, I'm not going to read any other book that comes my way' including this one book which was recommended by a friend ever so long ago, but which I only recently found. Actually, the book found me, and told me... "Read me! Read me!"

And that is what I did. Surprisingly, I managed to stay sane throughout the month.
I actually typed out this post on April 3rd, which suggests that this post is awfully backdated. At present, Good Omens has been neatly stored back into the book cupboard as I have completed reading it! It's a hoot! It was 6 days of bliss!
Anyways, back to the dreariness of life, I find myself shoving another abandoned book into my hands before I hop on to other more interesting stuff that await.
Why do I do this to myself?
