The trouble starts when you get up in the morning and don't know what day it is. That's not all, its when you genuinely don't know what day it is and along with neither the day's date nor year nor month. The last evening that you may have spent in some fashion doesn't not stick in your head, and to this particular detail whether which drink you drank or in whose mouth your tongue was lost.
The tale turns Kafkaish, and emptiness pours in your mind.

Good afternoon, everything is fucked up as usual! Thank you.

Oh yes thought I might tell you -- as this is space where we be honest, don't we? -- that I read Marquez' Chronicles of a Death Foretold. Its on my course this year. Yes it is fucking brilliant! Also, I would like to say that I'm pleased Kiran Desai has braced the Booker. had interviewed her when the book was released. I feel damn happy.

My favourite Marquez is 'Of love and Other Demons'.

Have you read 'One Hundred Years of Solitude'?
Wat did you think?

FCM: I have read it. What do I think? I don't know if I can do justice to that. But I can attempt to bring about the imagery. It was beautiful.

Simmi: Your cat's awesome! Words are truly endless and eternal. I'm glad time hasn't decieved this.

Mincat: Yes DU, dearth ain't it? I will surely read the book. Thank you.

Preorna: I suffer, rather I battle every night. I can't sleep well, and when I do its mere exhaustion. The rest of the night I draw diagrams in mind. Though, you know...
