To those of you who have subscribed to this blog: I’m sorry! 😮 Last night, I imported the other blog to this, so that I’d have all posts in the WP-challenge in one place. This meant that I filled up your mail boxes with 100+ emails. Didn’t think of that, but there was no other way to do it. The night before, when I attempted to do the same thing, all the hundred posts went to Twitter in one fell swoop …. people must have thought I was an imbecile hanging head in shame.
I walked uptown yesterday again … two days in a row now. It feels funny to say ‘uptown’ because in my case it’s downhill all the way, but here in Saint John the downtown area is referred to as ‘uptown’. There’s even a big sign across the street, where it says «Welcome to Uptown Saint John».
Turned a book back in, and picked up a new. Both of them being Nicholas Sparks novels. I was thinking to myself, that perhaps I should take something else in order to make the Nicholas Sparks novels last longer so to speak. Told my friend and librarian, Gerda in Holland, about that later online, and she gave me two excellent links with «if you like Nicholas Sparks you might also like ……..» Extremely cool! I saw several right away that looked tempting.
I’ve written about reading books before in my blog, but I’ll say it again: I read basically for some sort of entertainment … to fall asleep easier, escape from reality or whatever. I don’t want it to be too depressing or heavy. Guess I’ve found my favorite author all time. He makes me want to go and see the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It’s funny, nowadays, when you can find your favourite author, for example, on both Twitter and Facebook.
After the library visit, I went and had a Frapuccino at Starbucks. It’s always fun to do some people watching, and it was during lunch hour, so there were lots of people … some really important-looking and full of themselves … others more laid-back.
It’s a foggy morning and it’s supposed to rain, both today and tomorrow. I’d been planning to go out and take some pictures today, but I think the rain is imminent Just realized it’s May 4th and that means that it has been seven years already since I left my native Sweden. I remember the day very well … how scared I was to miss my connecting flight at LHR, because my flight from Stockholm was delayed. Had to run like a maniac through LHR, thankfully it was the same terminal. And how the lady in the Immigrations at Dorval Airport, Montreal [now Trudeau], asked me where I was going and I said Lac-Beauport. The thing was I pronounced it Lake Beauport, she corrected me and pronounced it the French way and said «well … this was your first French lesson» 😳
