about twice a year i get to be home alone for the weekend when the wife brings the kids to the hometown.
i'm ok with it - not that i don't miss them (i do!) but i've got stuffs that keep me occupied.
for a start, i work.
i've also got a whole weekend of football on astro plus i've just started reading Life of Pi again. actually, i commenced reading last year but somehow after about 10 chapters, the unfolding of the growing years of the protagonist got a tad boring & i stopped. now that the movie version of this Man Booker prize winner is to be released next year, i thought i'd pick the book up again.
oh yes, i bought it last year at a book fair because the hard-cover sold at less than half price. much as i enjoy reading, i usually purchase when the books are really on sale.
like today. i dropped by the local bookstore & this just jumped at me from the discount counter. the yellow tag was a dead giveaway....
it's 2 years from its 1st release but where can you get a current hard-cover by a best-selling author for rm9.90 these days?
yeah, the wife & kids would be home before i know it!
