regarding the world with a jaundiced eye?
So this year I’ve missed it. Or most of it. I did get one Sunday afternoon with friends and beer while the sound of knashor ghonta floated up and the ladies fluttered in sudden panic over being late for the pujo. The rest of the time, really, I was just too sick to care.
But being sick isn’t so bad. I can’t remember the last time I spent an entire week at home. One. Whole. Week. Haven’t even stepped out of the front door. How strange. No office, meetings, dinners, cocktails, gym, library. No Saturday-lunch-and-shopping, no let’s-try-that-new-place-for-dinner. No stopping-by-the-office-to-send-off-a-report. Nothing.
Instead … a succession of books. The Kite Runner.
I could get used to this. Far too easy.
Kim/Amelie, I applaud your deduction sans observation. The title, m'sieu, says it all.
In the wild west when someone says oh! you are yellow.."them's fighting words"
Pray don't, Uncle J. Some of us live in harder times, nine-anna-half hours behind. Between cleaning, laundry, ironing, remembering to shop, shopping, paying bills, cooking, taking care of ill self, and schoolwork, it's a miracle if we have time to catch a fleeting glance of ourselves in the bathroom mirror.
I haven't checked my angelic visage for at least the last four days, now that I come to think of it.
But our trees are turning pretty. We have Colours, cold comfort (pun intended) though it is.
E Lungs, beer was before the path results.
Oz, I prefer mohey rang de basanti
Austere, noted, thanks.
Rimi, pray don't what? And frankly, between the colours of fall and Calcutt'a mellow shorot , the latter always wins for me.
Meantime, write more of them mellow 'uns.
KM, you're getting me all teared up, bud.
Progga, more mellow than yellow, as Ph said. Must be all the fruit in autumn.
Partho, "mellow" may be a problem with all my added bile, but shall try to oblige.
*Slaps head in amazement at stupidity*.
Also, now here's a mystery.
How did Ph's "KM gets you teared up" comment come before you actually posted the said comment? Is Ph now a precog as well?
