Scud's Random Thoughts: Part IV

Five days. That's the number of days I've been home. And each of those days I've seen my four-year-old niece dance to the tune of Bratney Spears' manizer (her term not mine). She's a riot. I even took a video of her gyrating in my bed and in our porch using my lola's walker as props. Kids.

I went to my high school friend's wedding - the main reason why I took an early Christmas break. I haven't seen her more beautiful or happier than she was that day. She was beaming. I brought my camera with me and took lots of pictures. I was surprised that some of the pics turned out well. My friends were impressed. I'm actually getting better with this. Hehe.

At the reception, I was surprised to see my yaya from my grade school and high school days. She didn't change a bit. We talked for awhile, asked how each other was doing, and parted ways. What a small world.

*****

I finally finished Haruki Murikami's Norwegian Wood. The book is written in the first person and it is a great read. There's some heavy stuff, lots of (casual) sex, and humor. Read this.

Yaya? May yaya ka noong high school? Hehe. Just teasing you, man.

Lahat ng babae, basta mahal ang pakakasalan, maganda sa wedding day niya.

Pag ikinasal ka, photog ako, ha? Gustong-gusto ko ang mga kasal kasi walang pangit sa araw na iyon. Sarap kumuha ng litrato.

I read Murakami's What I Talk About When I Talk About Running. He is a delightful read.

Your niece must be a very funny, intelligent and cute kid. Enjoy these times with her while she's still young. :)

I think I ought to try reading Murakami's Norwegian Wood. What piqued my interest is that I'm a huge Beatles fan (check my avatar hehehe) and Norwegian Wood is the title of one of my all-time favorite John Lennon songs. I'll ask the SO if she could get me a copy.

Gave Haruki Murakami's "The Wind-up Bird Chronicle" as a farewell gift to my officemate. I hope she likes it. Have you read this book? Is it good?
