What I'm Doing 14

What I'm listening to (a little royalty);

What I'm reading (closely) (since it is the 'year of the rat', apparently);

What I'm watching soon (though I can't remember why I ordered this);

What I'm eating (because it's that season);

What I'm wearing (because it's cold...

and it goes with my new hair in terracotta and berry).

I once saw Queen live, when someone gave me free tickets to a show. If I recall, I liked the concert even if it was full of shrieking teeny boppers.

Apropos The Children of Men, I haven't seen the film, but really liked the book it was drawn from. It is, as far as I know, the only science fiction novel P D James has ever written.

Don't expect to be uplifted with Children of Men! It's a rather depressing film, even if an adaption from a P D James novel. I suspect she wrote this at a graveside.

Great post - I love the way each part builds into the picture of you and your day.

I really liked 'The Plague', but then I have a soft spot for Mr Camus. I enjoyed 'Children of Men' too, although it came out very differently than the book. I quite like the bleakness of the settings though, very atmospheric.

But I can't stand Cream Eggs, I love the choc just not the gooey withins. I prefer something solid and bitter instead :)

Anne S - I am so jealous you saw Queen Live. I can imagine the SF book was good. I was really surprised to see it had been written by PD James at the end. I shall have to take a look.

CFR: Yes, I agree - bleak film - though that in itself not bad, I feel.

Jem: I was reading The Plague on the train and a young man came up to me and said 'Great Book'. I remember reading L'Etranger in French - a strange experience since I'm not very good at french. It was like reading through a screen. I don't think I understood much. My late brother loved that book too. I'll have to read it again.

I have always been addicted to cream eggs and once ate a box of them and didn't feel sick.

Thanks CB. I think I may have gone a bit far with this, but what the heck...
