Over the last couple of days I had a few “You should blog about this” thoughts, but then I never got around to it, whether it was lack of time or energy or whatever. It was a busy week and I didn’t sleep well on a few nights and the weather around here sucks. Seriously, ground frost warning at the end of May? WTF?!?!?!

I saw “The Great Gatsby” this week and enjoyed it. I admit I didn’t know much about the story, because 15 years ago I couldn’t bring myself to finish reading the classic. Back then I thought it was boring as hell. After watching the movie now I guess I understand why *g* The plot is kind of boring and the movie could have been paced a bit faster for my taste, but it was entertaining enough. It was colourful and crazy and in a lot of ways shot beautifully so it was worth watching all in all. I really liked Leonardo di Caprio in this one and I still have to buy some songs from the soundtrack, because the music was pretty neat as well.

Two days ago I finished listening to the audiobook of “Drums of Autumn”, the 4th book of the Outlander series. The memory from the first time I read the book (and later listened to the audiobook) actually made me expect a few boring parts in this audiobook, but it didn’t feel like that this time around. No idea why, but I didn’t feel bored at all. Probably because by now I’m fully sucked into the Outlander-World again :-)

If I’m not working, sleeping or listening to Outlander audiobooks these days I’m watching old Gilmore Girls episodes and/or playing the Candy Crush Saga on my phone. It’s an exciting life I lead these days, isn’t it…?
