Troy Makes Things Right

A Study in Daisies I

Troy came back from his guys only weekend yesterday and made everything right. He had a talk with the morons downstairs and brought the cable TV back on (stupid Rogers Cable). And then he said the words I'd been wanting to hear: "We should move." Yes! I would love to move to Stratford (just because there's a lot of pretty things to photograph there, really) but I don't think Troy likes the idea. Plus, we don't really have the money to move in the near future.

Speaking of Stratford, I kind of want to see Much Ado About Nothing. Shakespeare wrote some good comedies. The one we saw two years ago, A Midsummer Night's Dream, was excellent and hilarious. We saw another Shakespeare's play at the University of Waterloo and another one when we were in Halifax, Nova Scotia last year. Can't remember the titles, though. The one in Halifax was performed by Shakespeare By The Sea in Point Pleasant Park, which was awesome. The show was performed outdoor and there were some mosquitoes around but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

Anyway, while Troy was away this weekend, I managed to finish reading a book. That's always an accomplishment since I have a very short attention span and am only able to finish reading 2-3 books a year (while Troy could finish twice that in a month). The book was Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom which I started reading, oh, only about 6 months ago. It was a good book, but not as good as Albom's most recent work, The Five People You Meet In Heaven, which is my all-time favourite book. If you click the last link, you'll see that Albom will have a new book coming out in late September. Can't wait!

Before I started reading Tuesdays With Morrie, I'd already started reading The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. But I think I've given up on that book. I know a lot of people like it, but the story is just dragging too much for my liking. I think I'll just see the movie when it comes out next year. Right now I'm reading Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. It's a young adult book, which usually means an easy read. I'm enjoying it so far.

    I don’t think the neigh­bours are morons, just incon­sid­er­ate and smokey :)
    And I’m warm­ing up to mov­ing to Strat­ford. I should bor­row mon­ey from my par­ents to move, and then house sit in Sep­tem­ber.
    We should fig­ure that out.

    What­ev­er you do, don’t move across the street to the side! That would just be worse!

    Hi!
    I found your web­site because of the Fir­damat­ic. Which is great by the way. (I’m not very cre­ative.)
    I saw Much Ado About Noth­ing in Strat­ford once, and it was an excel­lent play. They had made it longer and omit­ted a cou­ple of things, but I thought it was great. The friend I went with ruined the night by falling asleep dur­ing it though.
    Any­ways, I think your site is gor­geous. :)

    Star­girl is a won­der­ful book. I heard that it will be a movie. Don’t know where I heard that…oh well. Lots of use­less knowl­edge in my head. I enjoy your blog so much. Thanks for the cur­ried rice recipe, also. I’m going to try it on my hus­band, who is also not a big rice fan. I’m not Indone­sian, but rice is my favorite starch! So thanks for a job well done…and for the Fir­damat­ic. It rocks!
