you're reading...


Or getting there.

the Jabberwock dropped in yesterday. Seemed somewhat distressed to find me watching wrestling. I tried to explain that my computer just beeps at me when i put it on, and Stoobs comp is in his office. It is impossible to get anything done. I cant write on paper. So now i have films but no DVD player, pictures in head but no camera, ideas but no computer.

i suppose i could read. but vegetation is so much easier. i could turn into one of ranas characters, who keep growing leaves and shoots and stuff. i could grow roots. saves the expense of moving.

I never get bored nowadays. wonder why. i spent most of my childhood being bored. it was quite fun.

my sister is in delhi. will see her this evening.

sarnath is back too. has sold his book abroad, apparently. will see him this evening too.

  1. sounds like you have a ram probelm with the comp if it beeps at you on startup.
    easily fixed.
    no need to grow roots.

  2. but if he doesn’t grow roots, what will the ram eat?

  3. methinks the ram has already gotten his goat!
