Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts #86

May 25, 2017 | 3 comments


1. I couldn’t resist and watched the remake of Dirty Dancing. The highlight was definitely Nicole Scherzinger as Penny, and I did like some of the new things they had added, but overall, it just felt like a watered-down version of the original (especially when it comes to the dancing). And the ending ruined it completely.

2. I recognized 5 of these 7 old things. (I, or my family, even have several of them.)

3. I thought this video about sign language and music was very interesting.

4. The project of finally reading Les Miserables is pretty much on a standstill. I started in January, and have still barely made a dent in it. The other day, I started rereading another >1000 page classic: Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind (which thankfully is going a lot faster than Les Miserables).

5. I’m almost finished with my current big crochet project, so I’m starting to plan the next one. I’m thinking of doing either a granny square blanket or one with a pattern of triangles or diamonds.
