I didn't really make any New Year's resolutions. Well, sort of... but only two and they really go together. That is, I want to go to bed earlier in order to do more reading. Oh, of course, also to sleep...perchance to dream...of you-know-whom! I do need much more sleep. But I also want to do more reading and the best place for me to do so is in my bed, just before going to sleep.
Here is a video about the television miniseries character Wallander and how he is so tired that he falls asleep in somewhat inappropriate places. I was able to catch only a couple of episodes of this terrific series starring Kenneth Branagh on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery. Ruth at Booktalk and More has done a wonderful job reviewing the series on her blog. Servetus from Me + Richard Armitage has also made reference to her enjoyment of it.
Sadly the video I once displayed here, has been made private. It was scenes of Wallander falling asleep (even while driving!) set to The Smith's song Asleep. While I wish I could show it to you, at least you can still listen to the song -which is wonderful.
It amazes me how The Smiths's music seems to fit so well to Wallander's personality.
Here is a lovely fanvid about the dreamy romances of Period Dramas:
Only When I Sleep / The Corrs by Joanamafalda
This magnificent fanvid about Guy of Gisborne and Maid Marian from BBC's Robin Hood series is like a sad lullaby.
Eternal Sleepsong / Secret Garden by JulietD001
My favourite way to go to sleep...Richard reading me a story! This is a fanvid compilation of all his CBeebies stories set to music. It has a very intriguing title:
Bedtime with Richard by AuzMoz
Shhhh! I think he's sleeping. I guess I should do the same...
I actually had my first RA dream on Saturday night (or Sunday morning to be exact). I should have written it down immediately because it's a bit fuzzy now. I do know that he appeared as Harry Kennedy! He towered over me as he was leaning over me with a big grin on his face. I was very calm, in the dream -- like it was something that happened all the time! I do remember feeling very happy and comfortable and safe. Sorry, it's not more exciting than that, but it was lovely all the same. :) Now that I know I might have another RA dream, perhaps I will be more willing to actually GO TO BED!
