Done with the project I was on, I decided to take a few days off. Normally when I get or take a few days off, I try and fit in quite a bit of travel during that period. but this time around I decided to do nothing.

Now I am good at sitting and doing nothing, you may laugh, but if are one who thinks doing nothing is a waste of time or how can one do nothing, then forget it, you just wouldn't understand :D

Well this is what nothing consists of

- Wake up late
- Read
- A bit of Scrabble and other word games
- Watch Cricket on tv

that is it!

Some clowns told me "So you are going on holidays and sitting at home!" well yeah that is my style really .

What is coming up? I do have a lot of travel that I would like to do, and that is something that I look forward to.

oh reading the second in the Bartimaeus Triolgy btw, and a friend promised me some super Terry Pratchett books that I haven't read before so quite a bit on the reading front :D

Irritating scrabble tips!

Lol, This is how I DON'T play scrabble, check out the tips this LINK provides, used on a regular basis by "Hardcore" Scrabble players.

Krymsson and I just enjoy playing the game to make and learn truly beautiful English words, and not high scoring words that mean nothing. heh.

Books are weapons... (of mass distraction ?)

Here I found a list of top 10 Banned Books of the 20th Century

Kangaroo Words

A fun concept for all ye Word Smiths -> Joey to the World

Fair Share of Hair

I am not one of those who go to a glitzy saloon, where the tresses are pampered and cut as if engaging in topiary.

I belong to the category of people, who find the place most close to home, that offers to chop off the hair, hence getting the hair cut with minimalistic effort.

“HARE CUTTING SALOON” shouts the lettering neatly stenciled on the door of the Saloon I visit on a not so regular basis, yes this is the same place that used to have the Himesh Reshamiya look alike (cap and all).

The girl thinks I look " ‘funny’ with my hair all around the place ",

well at the moment it does indeed look like it is defying the laws of gravity :(

siiiggghh it definitely is time to go get a haircut. Yaaaawn.

When do I get to go bald ?? *taps fingers impatiently*

Been Reading

American Gods

True to my word, I went back to Gaiman, was not disappointed, American Gods is supposedly Gaiman's best book. I would not go as far to categorise it as his best work, but definitely a good read if you are used to reading Gaiman, else it gets a little dark and confusing.

The Bartimaeus Trilogy - The Amulet of Samarkand

The first book of the Bartimaeus Series, was recommended to me as being very Pratchett like. I was promised I would enjoy it. I promptly bought it and began reading, and boy! is it wonderful?
I am about halfway through the book and am thoroughly enjoying it! A must read for all lovers of fantasy, the way fantasy must be.
Very funny, laden with sarcasm and oodles of magic.
