New Years.

My head still hurts and I am still abit woozy. For the first time in couple of years I have let myself loose, and got plastered. Of course there was hell to pay today, but I have almost recovered.

Several gems came out during morning's hangover.

"Those are not deer, those are tree stumps"
"My singing made people wish they were blind"

The presents have been open, and everyone got what they wanted. Me and The Awesome Wife share ideas for presents throughout the year.

As I opened one of my presents I realized that I have never read Sherlock Holmes (one of my all time favorite books) in English. Now I have a leatherbound copy of complete Holmes by Sir Conan Doyle.

Going to start reading right away, especially since it has been quite a while since my last Holmes reading.

Oh, And Happy New Year!

It's been a long time since I let myself get that loose because hangovers suck. Glad you're feeling better and got presents you wanted.

One time when I decided to improve
my English (to switch from Russian reading fully to English), I started to read "The Hound of Baskervill's" in english hoping that my hundreds of times reading and rereading the famous series of novels about Sherlock Holmes will help me better understand because I actually have known almost all the novels by my memory.
Oh, my god! It was so boring! I can not read more than few pages.
From this time I have never tried to read whatever I read in Russian in original language.
And I still love all the books of sir Conan Doyle with all my heart.
And now I only read original English books.
Mama.
