nerd diaries: February 2020

Updated: Dec 15, 2020

This month's reading reveals my major coping mechanism: interwar crime fiction.


I was still super ill and off work in February, and was having all sorts of unpleasant complications, and when things get hard, that's when you need a 1930s plucky young woman heroine solving crimes.


Even though I adore horror, I can't touch it when I'm ill. As such, you will see there is a lot of the Maisie Dobbs book series (and all that similar books the series has inspired) in the first few months of the year....


I also like to watch curmudgeonly old women fighting crime in the present day.


So February saw an awful lot of Vera.


Three February highlights: watching Predator for the millionth time with our kid, over at my mums (what a treat that seems like now), watching This is Spinal Tap for the billionth time, and the start of a new season of Drag Race.


Hurrah!
