Okay, life can be strange sometimes. I was on Amazon, quietly attaching my new print books [dance] to my Author Central page when my search for ‘Miira’ came up with five pages worth of results. And most of them were Japanese!
Given that my Miira is supposed to be a Eurasian of Chinese/Swedish extraction, I was a little dismayed. Clearly I should have done my research when I first came up with the name, but…I thought I’d made it up. Anyway, eager to make up for being lazy before, I googled ‘Miira’ and ‘Japanese’ and discovered that ‘miira’ means…

No, not the motherly kind of mummy but the wrapped-up-in-cloth-and-buried-in-a-sarcophagus kind. I kid you not.

In other news, the Offspring and I went out, actually out to see a movie last night and it was absolutely, fan-bloody-tastic. The movie is Blade Runner 2049, and if it’s still playing in a cinema near you, do yourself a favour and go see it on the big screen. Seriously, probably the best movie I’ve seen since Fury Road. Okay, it’s the only movie I’ve seen since Fury Road but let’s not split hairs.
Want to know something else? The production team of Blade Runner 2049 is chock full of Hungarians!
Yes, it has been a good weekend, and I hope yours turns out the same.
