How are you doing, as the Americans say? So I take it you are not planning your winter getaway to sunnier climes? What news of the Pain Clinic expedition? Did I mention that it sounded utterly horrific? If not, I meant to. The needles, I mean. Not the expedition. As a child I was utterly terrified of needles, though for some reason it never occurred to me to tell anyone. (I didn’t have the healthiest family, growing up.)
For no particular reason, that makes me think of the quote by Cecil Rhodes
Remember that you are an Englishman, and have consequently won first prize in the lottery of life.
I wonder whether he thought Englishwomen had won a lottery too. Let’s suppose he did. So, snowy winters, but hey, you won a lottery! Just kidding.
Sorry, I’m inclined to non sequiturs. It’s a character flaw, no doubt.
I’m fairly certain it does. In the best Indian traditions, I aim for the lofty heights of barely adequate. Luxurious this is not.
I haven’t been keeping up with the volcano news. But I’m guessing whatever volcano this is, it isn’t particularly close to our neighborhood. A quick check sugests this is probably Bali’s Mount Agung.
Though we did get some unseasonal rain in the last couple of days. A cyclone in the Arabian Sea or something. With the unfortunate name of Ockhi. (I wonder who names these things.)
