Daoud Sentence of the Day

“I lived my life in absolute freedom, which lasted exactly 40 days.”

The Meursault Investigation (translated from the French by John Cullen)

Self can relate. Reading this at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig.

Stay tuned.

Tarzan Peeta!

Anyone remember when Brendan Fraser was super, super-hot?

Anyone remember him in George in the Jungle?

Well, today, after another blissful day in Annaghmakerrig (Thank YOU, Tyrone Guthrie Centre!), self fell to searching for new Everlark fan fics. And she found one that was mighty intriguing!

Let’s see if she can adequately summarize it:

Katniss is fleeing tabloid rumors about her husband’s predilection for men and goes on some kind of exotic adventure with her uncle Haymitch and a male companion (and possibly would-be paramour, Finnick, of all people). The company have to sleep in tents out in the wilderness. Katniss has a life-changing encounter with a naked man with blonde hair and blue eyes (of course, the man’s body is perfect, just perfect) and she raises the alarm (Katniss, you are absolutely clue-leeeess!) and the man goes scampering back into the jungle, but not before he’s had the chance to don one of Katniss’s dresses.

Yes indeed, the last we see of Tarzan Peeta in the opening chapter is him running into the forest wearing an ORANGE dress. Which, on him, barely reaches to there.

Love it!

Stay tuned.

Stonehenge/ Pacifica

Self’s short piece, about Stonehenge, published in Wigleaf:

(Excerpt)

It was a dream I had, some restless night.
Perhaps one of those weeks/ months/ years
when we were worried about money.
But when were we ever not worried?
First there was the mortgage,
and then the two.
Then your mother got sick,
and your father died.
And my mother I think developed
Alzheimer’s
but we couldn’t ever mention it.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Fan Fic Wednesday: Dystopian Everlark

KATNISS:

What do you mean I’m in America? America was destroyed a hundred years ago.

PEETA:

Umm . . . Sorry I guess it’s technically called New America. That’s probably how it appears on your maps back in Panem.

(Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned)
