When OPAQUE is all you need

Dear Diary, I browsed through DailyPrompts today and picked out Opaque. Why, you’d ask? I have absolutely no idea, to tell you the truth. The first thing that came to my mind was, opaque-marengo… No, please do not think I have gone of the rockers here. I am not crazy and am not on any prohibited…

Whoever screams the loudest…

Dear Diary, Please use your universal wisdom and universal pool of brains and IQs to give me an answer. The question being: Why some people think if they scream and shout and throw abuse around they will get out of any problem? That they will become ‘right’ no matter how wrong they are? What am…

Sail by James Patterson – ‘Charity Box’ Book

The latest addition to my ‘Charity Box’ is Sail by James Patterson Yeah, I am still going through my bought-but-forgotten collection of James Patterson’s novels.  I used to ‘eat them up’ like crazy, years ago. I loved all of them. Then, I stopped. Now, reading his books in order to give them away, I realised…

Judge and Jury by James Patterson – ‘Charity Box’ book

The new addition to my ‘Charity Box’ (mind you, all the previous books have successfully gone to Church Charity, Salvation Army and local library. My karma feels so much lighter) is Judge and Jury by James Patterson. Andie DeGrasse, an aspiring actress and single mom, is not your typical juror. Hoping to get dismissed from…

Без-советно. Часть Первая

Один из моих друзей на Фейсбук повесил сегодня с утра пораньше такой пост Не ждите неприятностей.

Short Thoughts: Volume 3 – Load Off?

Dear Diary, Am I the only one or there are more like me? When something or someone is gone from your life, do you feel the load off? Do you? Honestly? Truly? It means I am not a horrible, cold-hearted, jaded person I turned out to be (Story of Snow Queen). Please tell me there…

Beauty and The Beast: adventure?

Dear Diary, I saw it. I saw the movie, the new installment of Beauty and the Beast yesterday. It was a wonderful, beautiful movie with a happy ending. However, the point of my post is not that happy, sunny, all-tie-together-nicely. My point is… what’s the point? What was the point of looking for an adventure…

It’s Time to Say Good Bye: Rizzoli & Isles

 Dear Readers, I won’t open a Pandora Box for you (people from USA already know it) when I say that last night I watched the last ever episode of one of my favourites – Rizzoli & Isles (R&I) R&I is a crime show set in Boston, rather Boston Police HQ. It run over 7 seasons to…

Thoughts of the Day: Monday

Dear Diary, I neglected my Thoughts of the Day project for a whole week. I had my reasons. My gorgeous Ginger passed away. She’s been with us for over 13 years and now she is gone. A whole part of our lives has gone with her. Some of my naivety has gone with her. Now,…
