Day 1

The last long weekend we had, back in February, I had appointments on all three days and regretted it because the weather was miserable. This weekend I only have two but both are on rainy days that make travel almost as unpleasant. But this time I can bicycle in raingear and needn't walk anywhere if I don't want to, so shall call myself happy.

I continue on with my Classic Short Stories but wonder what's wrong with me that my reactions are so different from other people's. I think the heroine of Flowering Judas behaves perfectly rationally, aside from being in the middle of a Mexican civil war in the first place. I'd be non-reactive with people like that if I found myself in their dangerous company. Certainly the safest course. And I practically cheered at the end of Rain. Go Sadie Thompson, girl guerilla!

And otherwise I read back archives of my LJ because one should have something sensational to read when stuck indoors.
