Curry Puffs and Teh Tarek

New monitor. It shines pinkly in the summer sun. Actually no summer sun. A fluorescent light. So, it shines pinkly under the bright impartiality of a fluorescent light.

Boyz II Men crooning Silent Night. Now Nana Mouskouri singing Deck the Halls. Falalalala.

Nuff cookies. Baked last batch last night. Or in the wee hours of the morning. Soft, rolled balls of pecan chews. They are chewy. Good jaw exercise. Mary didn't much care for them, but Julie and Dadda did. Which is why I had to bake another batch when I was supposed to have finished cookie baking a while ago.

Distributed some presents already. Books I made. A CD mix. Three batches of cookies. A Texas Fudge Cake.

Bought new monitor today from newly opened Digital Mall. (Old monitor went on the blink) Trudged all the way to the top. Monitors got cheaper as you ascended. I think it has something to do with rent.

Raju's is still hang out for rich and famous. Saw Charlie Peters there today. Hmmmm... he waved and didn't come over to say hi. But that's OK. Don't really know what to say to the rich and famous.

We had curry puffs and teh tarek. (Some things never change)

Bought a whole heap of books at Wisma Atria. Ben Elton. Jeanette Winterson. Peter Carey. Julia Cameron. Joan Didion. And some others I can't remember now. Also bought Christmas CD which I'm listening to now.

Altogether an eventful day.

Getting close to when I'll have to split. So much more to do.

I am curious as to how you got one from the other. Really I am. I sit. I ponder. I don't get it. I still don't get it. I still don't get it.

Nessa: I am about to pack up my troubles in a piece of cloth, tie it to a stick, sling stick over my shoulder, and go out to seek my fortune.

Quilly: There's something to be said for both.
