So, the week got shorter
Easter. I am informed it will include tomorrow (Friday), and next Monday, and, a holiday for school children all of next week.
So, it's already the end of the week. You are indeed lucky that I feel little for the idea of a video, electing instead to practice my typing skills for this particular entry.
While Keith Richards has been snorting his father's ashes, sensibly mixed with quality cocaine, I have been brewing some Merlo Private blend.
Merlo, here in Brisbane, roast some serious coffee. You can visit them and check out the roasting process, consult an expert, and, as everyone should, select a fine Cuban Montecristo cigar, all in the same place. Even mentioning it makes me feel I should be there right now.
Merlo's Private blend is essential for celebratory situations and such a situation is today. Being, as I told you, the end of the week. Keep up please.
I celebrate not that it is the end of the week, for I work on the weekends, which means I lost a day off this week, I celebrate the lack of children for a few days, including Yvonne's two boys. This is cause for celebration. I may even eat ice cream this evening and get sick tomorrow because I did. Daring stuff.and, time for a good book
If my dastardly plan works I will be left with two days of this long weekend where the children are home, I am home, and the only good thing to do is read a book.
I already have informed everyone of the arrival, from Amazon, of the much anticipated 'The Master and Margarita'; I have only got through the preface thus far - computer work managing a priority for reasons I cannot explain.
Now, thanks to a timely visit to the library by Yvonne, I also have Bret Easton Ellis's latest book, 'Lunar Park'. I don't remember if I have read 'American Psycho' or not, but I remember it as a fairly adventurous book, starring a well dressed killer. Lunar Park appears to be a seriously good read as well. I do like a good mass murderer.
The delicious dilemma; which to begin first. The Russian masterpiece, or the fast paced serial killer? Or, just remembered, the latest Elmore Leonard piece, 'The Hunted' - Elmore Leonard books always provide some fast paced action.
So, fro all the hype, and all the confusion about what chocolate has to do with Easter, I am confident the lengthened weekend will produce at least one bright spot - a good book.
