The “Home” page is my daily blog. The remaining tabs contain previously blogged, episodic ‘stories’, which are now re-published in chronological order.
Yesterday I spent the entire day at home with my dogs.
I kept myself busy with my blog and then made a long overdue start on sorting out all my personal papers which have been piled sky-high on my dining table ever since I moved. I have made considerable inroads, but there is still much to do before I have them all filed away and properly archived.
I cooked myself three meals and in the evening watched some of my downloaded movies and TV series. I watched several episodes of ‘Treme’, the first episode of the 7th series of Inspector Morse, and the 5th episode of Boardwalk Empire. The night before, I watched the movie, “Gran Torino”; a ‘tour de force’ of a movie which stars and is directed by Clint Eastwood. If any of you are looking for a dramtic, emotional roller coaster, then you will do little better than Gran Torino. It is quite possibly Eastwood’s finest film, better even than ‘Million Dollar Baby’ which picked up all those Oscars.
The evening was punctuated by incessant calls from Tukta, Tan and Wei. I refused to answer any of them as I had nothing to say. I am now committed to trying to forge a life with Wan as she is head and shoulders above the rest in terms of what she is all about and what she can ‘bring to the party’. At around midnight I did start to feel sorry for Wei, and decided to send her an sms, apologising for not answering her calls and telling her that I had decided I was just too old for her. Wei is twenty five, but behaves like a 16 year old. I think she is looking for a father, not a lover and I know it would end in heartbreak.
I do not love Wan, but there again I don’t love any of the others either, so I might as well plump for the one who I know can take proper care of me, will not try to control me, and will give me plenty of space and time to do my own thing. It might work. It’s certainly worth a try, nothing much to lose really.
I am still sober, 5 days now, and feeling pretty good. I will do a bit more work on paper sorting and then I might try to make a start on my novel.
Sorry today is so boring. I will try to do better tomorrow.
