I cannot even recall when the last day I blogged was; I think it was possibly Saturday? Anyways, works has kept me quite busy that I am exhausted when I get home, that I have just enough time to read the newspaper, check my email and make myself dinner before I have to go to bed. Not quite the life I envisioned, but it's a job and helps me get to where I want to go. So last night I finally was able to begin watching season 2 of The Borgias which is just as lovely as I remember it being. Jeremy Irons as Pope Alexander VI was remarkable as always, but the other real standout is his son Cesare Borgia played by Francois Arnaud. These two men are the driving force behind the show, but the other members of the cast do a fine job as well. The show was shot beautifully, the music is great, the screenplay well written, and likable and interesting characters as well. That is the mark of an excellently well made series. I have been going through the edits that my editor made and I have also been in contact with my publisher concerning Book II. It's going slow and I really need to work on it faster, but I will get there eventually, sooner rather than later hopefully. My other writing is essentially non-existent at the moment, which is annoying, but it is what it is right now until I can figure out how to deal with work and writing, and figure out how to work the latter in without exhausting myself. I am close to finding my own apartment finally after so long, which will be amazing! Oh by the way, always keep a tennis racket handy if you live in an old basement. Why do I write this, because I encountered a bat soaring about last night as I was watching the television. Not the most comfortable thing in the world; the possibility of a bat dive-bombing towards your head. The world continues to get messier, and I could go on and on and on, but I'm not going to. I will write this though, of all of the mistakes that President Obama and his administration have been making lately, his choice to do nothing in Syria but do nothing is the worst of them all, and something he and his administration should truly be ashamed of. Good night everyone and good luck.
