I am trying to read Herzog at the moment. It has some true gems in there, but is very dense and the book itself keeps getting lost every five minutes, making progress difficult.
In other things cultural, watched "Le Bonheur" and "Mighty Aphrodite" over the last few days - both films with very different takes on life and love, both worth a look. Be prepared for huge escapism in both, some serious laughs, and in the former - one of the best head wrecks seen in ages...
In still other things cultural - Finland was my favourite in the Eurovision last night. It was tough to miss out on fair city for the evening, but singy cheese tops soapy cheese in my house.
I'm still a week and a half away from the estimated arrival date, so no panic there and have done a bit of sorting out of things so that we can impress new family member with our ruthless organisation and cool efficiency. Ordered a slingy thing too on the internet last night (so that I can get on with watching films, blogging and reading while still being a good parent) and it arrived two hours later - powerful service here.
Have noticed that drivers are more aggressive in the capital tho - something I hadn't really copped before - they are impatient, not that it's me they're beeping, but it's true that once people are inside their tin boxes on wheels they stop seeing other people as people - well at least you would hope most of them when walking up a busy path wouldn't scream at someone who was going slightly slower than them to get out of their way.
