Yesterday we went to Vue, in Leeds, and saw Everything Everywhere All at Once.
What a wild ride that is!
Such a great film. So creative and imaginative. You can tell the Daniels had fun writing it and the cast had fun filming it.
(The Daniels are the duo that turned Daniel Radcliffe into a farting corpse in Swiss Army Man. Another good film.)
I highly recommend you go and see Everything Everywhere All at Once (if only to see the fantastic return of Ke Huy Quan, who played Data in The Goonies).
This morning, I picked up a book from the local library on flower arranging, for my wife, and couldn’t leave without borrowing Morning: How to Make Time by Allan Jenkins.
I’m reading four books now. I don’t know why I do it to myself.
- Oliver Twist – Charles Dickens
- Yorkshire Oddities – S. Baring-Gould
- Toast – Nigel Slater
- (and now) Morning – Allan Jenkins
I’m pleased to report that I’m 11,728 words into the new story I’m writing (the one I mentioned in my previous post). It’s such a joy to write – though it fills me anxiety every time I sit down to write it.
Having already read 30 pages of Morning, I’m thinking of getting up a bit earlier. My alarm goes off at 6:30am. Maybe tonight I’ll set it for 5:30am.
I’ve just made myself a cup of Earl Grey, with a couple of cardamom pods and a quick squeeze of condensed milk. (Don’t judge me.)
Time to get back to writing my story.
