JusJoJan ~ Day 20 ~ Dramatic

Just Jot It January 2015Ok, I admit it’s not my day 20. It’s my day 16.

It’s funny how time runs when you are busy with writing and day job. I did not realise that it has been 4 or 5 days that I have not posted here. It’s a shame to have missed these chances but to be honest I was a little disappointed about WordPress and their seemingly mindless way of taking rights from bloggers who look like spammers.

They are a pain. No not WP but spammers. One of my accounts is called “phoenixrisesagain”. I never knew that the Phoenix must be a Nazi symbol but I figured it when suddenly right-wing bloggers seemed to love to connect to my posts. It was quite funny when I was raving against these kinds of people and they happily linked to it. It does help when you read the post you do link to.

Never mind. That is not really what I wanted to write about.I wanted to write about “War and Peace” by Tolstoy but I digress even more. Back to spammers. They are a pain and I can understand that WP can’t check all of them to figure out if they are or not. Therefore, it is even more important to stand up for fellow bloggers who end up in WordPress’s spam-checking-machinery. It worked I can let you know.

Opinionated Man is back in business and more opinionated than ever. You go, boy! πŸ™‚

That was dramatic as well. All the noise that was made by many bloggers. But the dramatic I am referring to is the BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of “War and Peace” by Tolstoy. I have it on my kindle and was determined to read it but I’ve experienced a certain reluctance of reading huge books lately. When I saw that the BBC had dramatised it, it was a no-brainer to listen to it. Especially as you can do it in your own time. They first broadcast on New Year’s day. About 10! hours long. I don’t think I could have managed that.

But all through January an hour here and there was fine. Sometimes though I wished I hadn’t. Especially when the ladies got quite upset about a son’s death or a burning house. I admit I am a bit of a drama queen but the few times when I have let myself scream and shout in public are pretty embarrassing to me. I had my reasons. Everybody who knows my story can understand that. Still, it’s not lady-like or professional.

I can’t bare dramatic bits on the radio. Neither on the telly. So in a way, I am glad I managed to listen to the whole lot and it’s over now. And even with the dramatic bits. I enjoyed it. And now I am off to find another old book to listen to πŸ™‚
