The week in review (2013-11-10)

The last two weeks were rather eventful: I felt quite poorly, document.write(“”); got a new iPad Air, had to deal with a twenty-seven-hour power outage, got my flu shot, since the temperature is getting much colder I took a few kittens inside the house (I’ll keep one and try to find someone to adopt the other two), and had to deal with a bogus order from Amazon (ordered a book in english and received it in spanish!). With all that I didn’t write much (two comments about children books (in french): one about Japanese holidays and one about growing tomatoes; and my pile of books to read is getting even taller!). I probably watch too much TV. Two British series that particularly stand out: Atlantis (a mythology-themed adventure series quite similar to Sinbad) and The Paradise (an epoch drama based on a novel by Émile Zola; it’s made by the same creator & producers (and with many actors) from Lark Rise to Candleford, and is also quite similar to Mr Selfridge–which was produced before The Paradise but was pushed back and aired after in order to avoid having two similar shows competing for the audience). And now I am so tired…
