It’s a wonderful feeling, waking up on Monday morning and knowing that there’s a whole week a ahead of you in which you don’t have to think about uni once; seven days of reading, writing, reading, crocheting, and reading. Or rather, five days, followed by two days of cramming for the Plant Biotech. midsemester I have at 10am on the first day back. Easter this year was originally intended to be an excuse to eat chocolate and read Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. But then I overindulged at the library last month, with the result that it’s actually an excuse to eat chocolate and rush through my remaining checkouts in order to borrow Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. Eventually.
I got a wonderful surprise last night when I stopped by Chris’s Book-a-Rama and discovered that I’ve been nominated for a.... ....Thinking Blogger Award. (Thanks Chris!). So now it’s my turn to find five blogs not previously nominated - as far as I can tell - that make me think:
1. If, and only if you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Link to that post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3. Optional: Proudly display your "Thinking Blogger Award" with a link to the post that you wrote
And I was also delighted last night to see that the adaptation of My Family and Other Animals lived up to expectations; I completely forgot about the existence of The Historian, even though Dracula had just put in a personal appearance. I really do think that poor Larry got the worst of it, between opening the scorpion-filled matchbox and having his study shredded by the magpies. Which reminds me that I must get around to starting Justine.
