canadian book club of one

It has been too hot to write.

We don't have air conditioning, so I have to sit very still so that I don't sweat too much. H. and I plot to go places with air conditioning so we don't have to be in the apartment. We go to movies, or we spend as much time as possible at the Museum of Natural History.

It's also too hot to cook, or even eat. But last week's lunch was a gyro-style chicken wrap (gyro-style because of the feta and tzatziki).

And this week is a wintery casserole with potatoes and kale. What?? A request from H, who also requested Irish Stew.

I've also moved on to my next Governor General award-winner, Nino Ricci's The Origin of Species (2008).

None of this is fabulously interesting. It's a run-down of the things that I do, for the benefit of nobody. So, to make this more amusing for you, let me tell you about a dream I had last night.

In the dream I realised that the world was infested with ghosts. I often dream about ghosts, and when I get scared in dreams I start praying. But not in this dream, because I discovered that if you take a photo of a ghost, it would die! So I walked the street killing ghosts with my camera and saving the world. And before I would snap their photo I would yell "Hey Bitches!".Every time.

H's birthday is in a couple weeks, so I've been surfing the web looking for the perfect gifts. I have a short-list, including one or two things that maybe would be more for me than for him. Does coveting for others count as coveting?

  1. Two things:
    1) I read this book, and I didn't like it at all, which is kind of rare, because I'm a wimp when it comes to developing my own opinions about these sorts of things. Anyway, I'll be really interested to hear your thoughts on it... perhaps you will post?

    2) I was recently reading A Very Short Introduction to Buddhism, in which the 31 planes of existence are discussed. Well, right at the bottom are (from the bottom up) hell, animals, and then ghosts. It kind of sucks that animals are closer to hell than ghosts.
