Do you ever have days where you have too much time on your hands? Or perhaps you are so absolutely swaddled in busyness that you end up doing nothing? I think I’ve double-clicked everyone on my list twice per day this week. And I have things to do. But I think I have the computer syndrome now, in which, if the computer’s open, your fingers are constantly rolling the mouse or typing random blather. I think I’ve had too much computer. I feel half computer. At work, I sit behind a computer and squint at an excel spreadsheet and literally find myself reading 1’s and 0’s. I read them very well too.
So I manage to repress some “must do something” stress and now I feel comfortably bored. I browsed around some more, and I found more bloggers to put on my internet reading list. And some of them have some challenges that seem d0-able. Like at The Written Word. There’s an “Everything Austen” Challenge. I’m feeling all tingly from the idea of re-watching and re-reading some of my favorite Jane Austens. I think I’ll start by watching ’em since I’ve got too much on my hands to read right now.
Should I start with watching Emma? Or perhaps P&P? I did very much enjoy “Becoming Jane” too. All that nice piano music. And the wonderful vunderful BBC. Thank goodness it’s still pumping out all the classics onto screen. I never get tired of them. Just this year I saw the newest version of Northanger Abbey which I adored. I sort of tweaked my answers so that I would get Catherine Moorland on the “which Jane Austen heroine are you?” quiz. But not too much. I’ve never actually read the book myself, but I liked the mock-gothicness of the story.
Yes, I believe I shall undertake this challenge, before I lose the power of reading non-numericals.
And I think I’ll go outside too. Hopefully I won’t fizzle into a pile of dust.
