Had I been in Scotland as had been planned, one of the things I would have put on my schedule was to see the filmed National Theatre production of Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. Twice. Because they swapped the roles of the creature and the Doctor. It's playing here in the US as well. In fact, it was playing 2.5 miles from where I currently am staying in San Gabriel, and I discovered yesterday afternoon that it was showing yesterday night (one showing only) with Benedict as the creature. Well, I dropped everything and made a walk for the theater. Yes, I could have taken the bus, but finances are limited and the ticket price was already $17 (thank you Fandango for the $2 processing free! Not!). My left foot, which has been sore for a bit, was not entirely happy with the walk there and even less happy with the walk back. However, it has little soreness today from the excursion.
That's what I would have done in Scotland had I been there. Glad I can do that here.
In the meantime my hosts here have showered me with new clothing, and I really need to wash what I already have. I have been fed every night, and I am resting. I had a rough weekend of complete exhaustion. I have started taking the Mannatech products again, and because my system has been so depleted, the concentrated nutrition plus glyconutrients can sometiimes make you feel a little flu-ish at first, and that's probably what happened. Sunday was a really bad day that way, but I felt quite dizzy all weekend. As soon as I would take any products, my energy level dropped drastically. Now, the drop is very slight. I can still feel it, but my body is adjusting at the cellular level.
One of the cats finally came out and sat near me last night. Well, "near" being about six feet away. However, he was quite relaxed about it and didn't scoot off the moment I made eye contact.
"On reading the first few pages of chapter 11, all I can say is WHY? WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS!? And now I crown you Mofftiss II...And the thing with the gravestone. GAH. That's so Mofftiss. You're a bloody genius and an evil, evil person. Maybe you should help write S4." I was so tickled with those comments (they are actually high praise!) that I was giddy with delight for the rest of the day (yesterday) and am still very delighted.
If anyone wants to read it, I'd be very happy to share the link, but I do ask that you have seen all 9 episodes of Sherlock or you will not know who is who and what is what. All 9 episodes are available on Netflix. I bought and downloaded them through ITunes.
"Moftiss" is a combination the the two creators of the series, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. They are known for making you all emotional (whether happy or sad) in their Sherlock episodes and then ripping the rug out from under you in a very jarring effect to make you scream What??? Why???? And that's often how each series ends. Then then they make you wait a couple of years for more. This is why they are sometimes referred to as Satan and Satan's best friend. LOL
I'm not entirely certain how many chapters are left although I have the last two written already, and Chapter 12 is nearly done. I suspect I have a few more to write in order to wrap up the mystery.
So here I sit eating some canned tuna salad on crackers. Writing. Resting.
