The weekend was purr..fect. Helped Nandini and Rajesh move to their new place on Saturday. Moving out on a rainy day is not fun at all. In between moving furniture and chowing down pizza, we did manage to find time for a heart to heart P’nPC (gossip for the uninitiated) session. Also met this lovely black feline neighbour of Nandini’s… reason enough to go back for a second visit. Subho and I came back home pretty tired and decided to stay home for dinner. Improvised a lovely Thai meal of wheat noddles with Asian pesto and stir fried tofu. Have to write the recipe down before I forget what I did.
Sunday was spent shopping. Landed up buying two books after a long time. I really miss the used book stores of Amherst. Barnes and Noble just doesn’t evoke the same feelings in me that a good used book store does, probably because:
- the latter are mostly run by people who love reading and the former by paid store managers.
- used book stores smell warmer, cozier and mustier; hence they are more inviting.
- the latter just sells books and does not try to peddle the whole experience complete with coffee, cake, reading lights, headrest, lap desk etc. etc.
- most importantly used books are cheap.
Hmmm...that's enough for now..need to get back to work.
