We had a quiet day today (well quiet is a relative thing, you know that) Got up late. Coffee-d, sat around and read for a bit. Got dressed then went to Springvale, an Eastern suburb of Melbourne with a large Vietnamese population. We had lunch at a Vietnamese cafe. Pho. (A Vietnamese soup). Karen and Adam did some grocery shopping and then it was on to a used bookstore in Belgrave.
MY ACQUISITIONS :
The Flaxborough Crab - Colin Watson
Hopjoy was Here - Colin Watson
I've heard good things about this author lately, so when I found several copies in the used books store I snaffled two.
Tonight we're off to the pub for Trivia Night. Wish us luck!
THINGS I HAVE LEARNED:
Vietnamese noodle soup is easiest when the noodles are eaten with a fork as opposed to a spoon or chopsticks.
Helen doesn't necessarily need to ingest alcohol to make extravagant hand gestures.
When Helen says she won't be buying more than 4 kilos worth of books, it doesn't mean 4 kilos in any conventional sense that we understand it to be.
Karen has a nice line in profanity when enountering women driving and talking on mobile phones.
I am unable to keep to my vow to not over-indulge in food, drink or chocolates. (oh well I'll start the diet tomorrow - yeah rigtht)
