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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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. :)

  3. 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!
