A good haul

T’was a quiet, peaceful Christmas eve with 3 Harry Potters en français in a beautifully wrapped X-mas pressie from dearest Emmett. I seem to have been an exceptionally well behaved person this year, because I received a total of 8 presents, including one of my favourite movies of late: Dunkirk, by Christopher Nolan.

Speaking of movies … Filled with happy anticipation we watched Matrix Resurrections yesterday. ”Regurgitations” would have been a more adequate title. I was (and still am) a huge fan of the first Matrix flick, but two thirds into the latest movie I fell asleep. I didn’t wake up again until the credits started rolling. I asked Emmett to please explain what had transpired during the grand finale. But he wasn’t sure. The meta of it all had taken a turn for the worse, so his guess was as good as mine, he said.

No matter. I will go now and sit by my drawing desk and test out all the nice pencils that Santa Emmett brought me for Christmas. And as a bedtime story, I will start reading ’Arri Potter et le prisonnier d’Azkaban.

Je suis très hereuse maintenant!
