the reading days

My book arrived :D:D:D:D:D


My book arrived!!!! Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! It arrived yesterday already but I saw the confirmation letter too late.
I am going to the bookstore now to get it! Ah, my legs are weakening. As if I am about to meet a lover! Burning feeling in the stomach. All flushed up. My heart is beating really fast. My ears and the palms of my hands are sweating. And I feel I don't have enough oxygen in my lungs.
What a book can do to a person!

But it is not just ANY book!!!! It is a journal, an actual journal of a lady who wrote about her experience in the Arctic after following her husband there!

“Leave everything as it is and follow me to the Arctic,” he wrote to his wife; but for Christiane, as for all central Europeans, the Arctic was just another word for freezing and forsaken solitude...

And she DID follow him!!!! Now THAT is love!!!

Aaaahhhh!!!!! So Romantic!!!!


I am off :D

P.S. Boyfriend checked in. They left Yekaterinburg and are now back to Moskva. Concert yesterday was good.
Twice in Moskva now, I HOPE he got to see a glimpse of the subway!
So far so good.
