A Line Allows Progress, a Circle Does Not

Oh my word, these wedge sandals. These gorgeous celery green 70s inspired perforated wedge sandals. They’re now an essential part of my summer uniform. I’m lusting for a pair of closed toe clog sandals from Ugglebo Clogs or Lotta From Stockholm but I’m going to wait until summer’s over before I treat myself to a pair. My only issue with sandals is that the ankle straps are always too big for my skinny ankles. I have to make a couple of new holes in them every time. It’s easily done though.I watched The Night Walker from 1964 last night. It’s a William Castle film. He produced Rosemary’s Baby and directed House on Haunted Hill, two of my all-time favourite films. I simply adore old psychological suspense thrillers and horror pictures. The night before, I watched Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, a Czechoslovakian surreal Freudian fantasy from 1970. I can also recommend the British coming-of-age drama An Education from 2009A sweet little film set in the early 60s with screenplay by Nick Hornby.I’m doing quite well ticking books off my summer reading list. I read Snuff by Chuck Palahniuk in 2 days. I’ve almost finished God is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens and I’m sporadically reading Paperweight by Stephen Fry. The latter is not even on the list!

Tonight I’m watching another documentary on the subject of religious conditioning of children called Jesus Camp. This is going to be frightening. I’d better put the kettle on.
