love doesn't always need to be romantic... :-)
I said i would reward myself with a book, so ta daaaaaa!
A few books. I can rarely ever buy just one book.
Uncle Tom's cabin is a classic i've never read - it was published in the 1850's
and written by a woman - already impressive. :-)
I can't wait to read it.
I've always loved Jewish history, so i look forward
to reading Gertruda's Oath as well.
And of course, how could i pass this up?
First of all, it's about Einstein & children, and secondly, it's $4.99.
It was said that Einstein had a great sense of humour.
When i saw this book cover of him in his fluffy blue slippers,
it reminded me of an interview I once saw on tv
with Alfred Hitchcock.
He was a British film director mostly known for psychological thrillers
like the Birds, Psycho, etc.
In this tv interview, I was surprised at his sense of humour.
He said he once had a dinner party at his house
and arranged so that all the food was blue!
The bread, the turkey, the potatoes, everything was blue -
even the drinks!
And of course, Hitchcock himself pretended that everything was normal.
Such a sense of humour coming from a man who made a living
scaring people half to death.
A great reminder that we often
take ourselves too seriously...
we should all have our own colourful dinner parties,
or own a pair of
fluffy blue slippers.
