nothing like book therapy to make the blues better. amenbob has been religiously raiding the damn dukaan whilst i've only made one strike- eight books in 0.5 seconds- but sooon. soooooon. will not tell amma and just come back bearing enormous thaila and the special grin o' acquisitive treasure hunter rescuer of beautiful books from people's bathrooms, condesationfying glasses, dog-earigng and destructive infants that only fellow bookphiles know. amma says stop buying books because there is NO SPACE for them, but it's like saying samundar aap please peechay books were all packed away and there are quite a lot more in their empty shelf space hehehehe methinks i'll have to either get more shelves (maybe move my bed out...hmm..) or put some in abbu's study

methinks i've caught taymuri's cold...i knew i would but i cannot resist lavishing him with hugs and kisses and squishes and carrying him around when i get the opportunity to. to balance the damange of mo and the flick i taught him how to do 'talk to the hand'. hee hee. then he said floot loll-ups like a little cheeni baba and it was all most endearing :) i also tried to get him to do the fantastic dance that the actor does in the song chinmayee sent me- tiktiktiktiktik, it was a little twist with the tiktik...T wanted to know why the actor sings tiktiktik and i told him it was because he'd swallowed a clock (all the while thinking of the peter pan alligator). i love how you can tell kids anything you want and they'll believe you, it's like magic being true again :)

terrible fires in new south wales, australia...maybe the only time the weatherperson gets any importance is when natural disasters happen, and then everyone's glued to the weather show.
