I love, love, love the Simon Serailler series by Susan Hill. This is the third of the series. I’m not sure why I love it so much, but I expect it is because she creates such fully rounded characters, with lives far beyond the mysteries.  And her detective is fascinating, maddening, and appealing to me. And his family is just as complex as he is.

I’m going to jump into book 4 tomorrow. I can’t wait!

First in the time travel series The Company, a wildly imaginative world where time travelers from the future create ‘immortals’ who then work for The Company collecting data, things, plants etc from the past to improve the lives of the people of the future.

They can only change children into immortals though, so they select children at risk to recruit to their purpose. Mendoza, a young child the Spanish Inquisition has locked in its dungeons is thusly recruited.

She grows up in a Company compound and the Garden of Iden is her first assignment.

It had a bit more romance than I like, but I did enjoy the story and especially the world-building.  I’ll read more of the series.

So yesterday I had oral surgery.  It went well.  I even got pain meds.  Surprised me, because I didn't get them the last time.  I took a couple yesterday and this morning, but haven't taken any since then.

Today I went to my doctor.  I had made an appointment a couple of weeks ago, for migraines.  This morning when I woke up, I had a sinus headache.  So I went and I was able to get some meds for that too.  When I made my appointment the office that Doctor was going on vacation(which was last week). So I asked if she had a nice vacation?  She said it was nice, she stayed home and did things with her kids.  I did tell her, I did said "HEY I'm important" in my head when I heard I had to wait a week.  She laughed.  Good things.

So I say this as evil as I can....I HAVE MEDS.  LOL!

I still haven't been able to get the dentures office to answer my calls.  I would like to get in to see them soon.  I went on their web site and left them a note.  So maybe that will get their attention.

Still working on getting a job.

Me not logging into LJ for over 2 months, that is.

Mostly this was the fault of The Laramie Project, about which I apologize profusely for not posting here for the benefit of those who might be (a) local, (b) interested, and (c) not following my pro blog, Twitter, or Facebook. If all those apply to anyone, I feel really bad and I'm sorry? On account of it's done now. It was pretty much my life for... basically all of those two months, and I'll probably be unpacking the experience a bit more over on my pro blog at some point, though it may be closer to when we do the proposed staged reading of TLP: Ten Years Later, assuming that happens.

I'll probably be online in general even less now, on account of Coreen-the-netbook runs XP and is therefore no longer getting security updates, so I've disabled the wifi and made her a dedicated audio recording station.

This means to do things with actual keyboard, I need to go up to the home office, which is in the attic, and any living-room surfing will happen on phone/tablet. LJ kinda calls for actual keyboard -- for posting, if not necessarily for commenting, though the latter can't get into much depth either without it -- so... well, I'm not sure I could be on it less than I have been lately, so.

I will be installing the LJ app on my tablet so I can at least read, though, so hopefully I'll keep up on that a bit better in future. Hope springs eternal. Hey, look, spring! %-}

(Please excuse the scatteredness; in the middle of upgrading someone's site to new version of Joomla so it can actually work again. Speaking of obsolete versions of things that are no longer secure. Stupid hackers anyway.)

Something of a transitional book for Charles Lenox. He’s a newly minted member of Parliament and newly married, attempting to find his feet in both circumstances, and finding, to his dismay, that he misses sussing out murderers and that when an opportunity to do so arises, he’s finding that more interesting than putting his shoulder to the wheel with regard to blue books and study of proposals in Parliament.

Kurt Wallander is a struggling with the changes happening to his world. His country is changing and he’s not sure he’s happy with its new-found ways. But he’s also a cop so he’s focused on trying to find a missing woman.  From the first he’s baffled by seemingly unrelated clues that keep complicating the search. When he finds her dead, he’s even more baffled because he can find no reason whatsoever that she’d be the victim of a crime, never mind the victim of what appears to be an assassination.

A terrific series and this a worthy entry to it.
