Other people can go to Hell!
In the spirit of Halloween I wish to summon a band of demons in order to have them scare and punish the people in my life who are striving to make me miserable. If these people persist then I'd be happy for my demons to ultimately drag them down into the pits of Hell.
My landlord is moving some Polish woman in with us to work alongside him in the church. This is fine but in spite of telling me she was coming for a weekend it transpires that she's staying for....... Six months!!!
To add insult to injury he's trying to tart the house up before her arrival which means him banging and clattering until gone one AM, he continually turns the electricity off, cuts the heating off and occasionally the water too. Grrr!!!
My cousins have decided to join in the fun of driving me crazy and despite my explanation that our wedding is to be a tiny event with VERY limited space they said that they would be happy not to attend the actual ceremony but would be involved in the remainder of the day, however now they have changed their tune and decided that this is not acceptable and I have people threatening to boycott the wedding because they don't have a 'role'.
I could understand their upset it I hadn't asked them in advance but they said it was fine and on the basis of that I made up numbers and sent out invites. My hands are tied now. I feel awful. I wish there was something I could do but I'm also so angry that they would be horrible to me after I went out of my way to ensure that they wouldn't feel this way. I feel like I'm a monster.
Not a good time to be clinically depressed. I'm on a backwards slide.
I have sneezes up my nose and sniffles too.
Started to lose my voice during a very busy day of teaching on Thursday, much to the delight of my students.
I've finished the compulsory teaching element to my course which is nice. I should be done soon and I've already started applying for jobs. Wish me luck!
Must go now and die slowly in the corner.

Books I've read this month - September
Two books again this month.
The first book is Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. Humbert Humbert tells his story of passion and lust towards a nymphet, Lolita. Although the theme of this book is quite disturbing, the author tackles it so well that you can't help but get swept along with the passions and emotions of the characters. Often even feeling pity for the monster, Humbert.
The second book is The Bone Collector by Jeffery Deaver. One of Deaver's books in his fantastic Lincoln Rhyme series. This book is very clever and well placed. The way he rights makes you feel as if you are right there yourself trying to catch the hideously creepy Bone Collector. Fantastic and thrilling.
