  Small pleasures
Funny how fickle the human mind is. Just a few hours back I was feeling the blues, ruminating about the past. Now that a big project is done, the fact I survived on around a dozen hours of sleep for the whole of last week mattered little. I promptly dashed off to the library and returned with a clutch of books for the holidays. And for good measure, signed up with Netflix and ordered 3 DVDs - Golden Hits of Ilaiyaraaja, Diego Armando Maradona and Extreme Weather: Tornadoes. Plus a few more thrilling DVDs lying unwatched this winter.

This library is a veritable treasure trove. I was delighted to find ''Ave a go, yer mug' in the sports section. Some munificent Aussie must have donated it. Never imagined I would see it all my life. Also brought home Political Economy of Armed Conflict
and this one about the Plantation schools in Sri Lanka. For a collection of this magnitude, it's disappointing they dont have better books about Sri Lanka.

Now I really need to finish a long deserved sumptuous lunch and sleep the afternoon off.
