Lines which have recently caught my attention:
“What would a rose do but bloom”
“Shit, I ate too much. Now I am food pregnant” (fukin hilarious)
“To compensate for your wait, here are some sweets”
It is almost impossible to go to a book store and not pick up something. Was feeling terribly rich so bought me a copy of Manto’s best. In english but thats what I will have to settle with until I learn Urdu. I always did want to learn that language. It sounds so beautiful and looks even more gorgeous.
So few people pay attention to how beautiful the language can be in a visual sense. I mean there are a few nutters who know the histories behind various fonts and discuss the same in a weirdly enthusiastic manner (I kid you not) but by and large, this bloody keyboard is slowly taking us away from the hand written. Which is kinda sad.
Plus I went to a pen store today which had these fake ancient looking quills. Some of them were absolutely horrendous with flowy feathers and all.
If I ever have the money and am feeling in a nostalgic mood, I will go buy myself a fob chain and a watch.
Also, I figure it would be fun to set up one’s house. Like properly. Buy the cute mugs and the funky coasters and the mismatched pillows and a couple of little chairs which can be placed on the balcony and used for the sunday morning chai.
Oh and the reason why women should wear heels is cause they make that wonderful “clack clack” sound. No other reason. Really.
