Spoilers ahead! If you’ve not read “The Count of Monte Cristo,” be warned!
Now then. Finally finished Alexandre Dumas’ “The Count of Monte Cristo,” which I greatly enjoyed. I’ve got to say, though, the fate of Mercedes is kinda lame. Seriously, Danglars was way more evil and got away with $50,000. Not fair. And he barely liked his family, so that’s no loss. Mercedes was far more contrite about what happened, even though her actions weren’t based in cowardice or malice, like the guys. The book is all about redemption and paying for your crimes, and it seems Mercedes wasn’t given a fair chance.
But I did like it. :)
There’s something very freeing about deleting numbers from my phone. For example, the one for the Charleston Jimmy John’s.
One of the things I love best about Tuesdays is that I work an early shift (or early for me, anyway), so when I get out of work the sun is just finished setting. It’s very refreshing to walk home with the light all gloamy, and the humidity dying down at last.
It probably won’t be as much fun in winter, but for now I’m enjoying it too much to worry about that.
I think maybe i’ll ease into this biking thing. My arms are ouchy today. Also, there were kittens in the office and i want one.
Biking is exhausting. But i think i did a decent job of it considering i haven’t been on a bike since high school.
Apparently, some species of cockroach give birth to live babies, while others breed by asexual reproduction. Others still are more than 8 centimeters long.
I asked the little visitor in my cabinet, and his friend from my ironing board (both of whom were quite tiny, luckily), about their reproductive habits, but they were very shy and would reveal nothing.
Logan, the opinions editor at the News & Advance, got a new puppy recently. He’s been bringing her to work so she’s not lonely during the day. She is a little black and tan spaniel named Abby, and is basically ridiculously adorable. I keep trying to be the last one to proof the editorial pages, so I can walk over there and pet Abby. Having a baby dog in the office really makes for an excellent working environment. :)
