blogging my progress on creating more and consuming less...


20 September 2011


Grace in small things.

1. Getting settled into a new rhythm. I'm working two days a week now, and it took a bit of time to get used to that old way of doing things (and overcoming the emotional "wahhhhh!" of dropping the Little Man off at day care). But we're settled now.

2. A refresher of optimism and hope that comes from being invited to sell my things at gorgeous places like Skyline Salon, Sienna Loves Kai, Beanies Cafe and now Things British.

3. Having inexplicably long fingernails. I'm a hopeless biter.

4. The gorgeous soft scarf Amy knitted for me. I got to bust it out all day yesterday because the library is cold. Thanks Amy!

5. De Forbrydelsen (The Killing). It's so good you won't get annoyed about having to read subtitles. And, even though he's never seen it, it's fun to say "Troels?" to Dhari because he responds with, "Yeah, Troels?" And if you get him to say "Troels Hartmann" he sounds Danish. But if you say "Theis?" he will say, "No, not Theis." Poor Theis. After 20 episodes, I finally know who killed Nanna Birk Larsen and why. And I can't wait for Season 2 to see what happened to "Anne" and if poor Sara Lund ever gets any sleep.

I know there's an American version. But. I'ma stick with the original.

Why does Lund do everything at night?
Why does she insist on going into dark warehouses alone?
Why did the police wipe Nanna's last call from her phone?

This last point will *always* bother me.

Tell me about it! Your last point also makes me wonder. For the other questions, however, a GCSE Media Studies student will tell you it's because "it creates tension".
